What it is: The Tundra is Toyota’s half-ton full-size pickup truck that's available in two cab configurations, three cargo bed lengths, a choice of 4.6- or 5.7-liter gas V-8 engines, and rear- or four-wheel drive. Body styles include the four-door Double Cab with conventional rear doors and the four-door CrewMax with larger rear doors and a roomier rear seat. The Tundra competes with the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150 and Nissan Titan.
Toyota Safety Sense P now comes standard. This active safety suite includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control and automatic high-beam headlights.
A new TRD Sport Package includes a honeycomb grille; color-keyed side mirrors, bumpers and hood scoop; 20-inch silver-painted alloy wheels with black accents and TRD graphics. There are also TRD anti-sway bars and Bilstein shocks, and the cabin gets a TRD shift knob and floormats.
The regular-cab Tundra has been dropped from the lineup.
