The 2010 Toyota Tundra Doublecab with the 5.7 I-force engine is a beast! I took it from Tucson to Kansas City and it is an impressive vehicle. Horse power to spare and great torque this truck can haul it. I plan to pull a pop=up camper with two dirt bikes and equipment and I know this truck wont even notice it. The interior is nicely appointed with well thought out ergos and cup holders and and storage compartments. The rear seating flips up for even more interior cargo area. The ride is very nice on the interstate and roadways with exceptional braking. The Towing package and TRD sport package make this a truck to be envied!
This is the second of two work-truck-package-configured Tundras my business owns (6 cylinder, long bed, hand crank windows, manual lock doors). We purchased the first, a 2008, as a Certified Used Vehicle in 2009 from a dealer. I have put virtually no money into the truck except tires, oil changes, and a tune-up on it at 100,000 miles (and a Line-X bed coating and soft tonneau) - we put about 25,000 miles per year on it, and fully utilize its payload capacity. From both a mechanical and cosmetic standpoint, the 2008 still runs and looks as if it is brand new. We are expanding our number of locations and needed more pickup trucks. Delighted with the ride, reliability, and low cost of ownership of the 2008 Tundra (as opposed to the two 2007 GMC Sierra work trucks we seldom use), we purchased this 2010 with 44,000 miles. I noticed two differences: 1) The 2010 is a "smidge" narrower than the 2008, and 2) the 2010 hesitates after turning. Thinking the latter issue might be a problem, and wanting an opinion from someone with no "skin in the game" before the 30 day free maintenance period expired, I took the Tundra to the local Toyota dealership for their $99 "pre-purchase inspection". They said the truck was in pristine condition and the hesitation is because of the way the trucks are now built...if I understood their explanation correctly, the linkages are now electronic as opposed to mechanical (wire vs cable) and as a result computer programming limits how much power can go to the rear wheels until the vehicle has completed the turn. My first Tundra convinced me they are sturdy, reliable, comfortable vehicles, and so far with the 5,000 miles I've put on the second one - I remain convinced that Tundras are what I want to use throughout my business.
Large enough to handle the family in comfort. Is a nice looking truck for everyday use.
