The Toyota Tundra straddles the line between a mid-size and full-size truck with a substantial towing capacity. It competes well with other domestic trucks in its class with its attractive exterior design, available V8 engine, comfortable driving experience, and responsive handling.
The Toyota Tundra debuted in 2000 with a bold exterior. As a replacement for the T100 model, it competed directly with the Ford F-150. At the time, the Toyota Tundra's big differentiating factor was the optional V8 engine. The second generation was released in 2007, which grew the Tundra's base with the interior remaining largely unchanged. Bigger, stronger engines like the 4.0L V6 engine and the 5.7L V8 debuted as options in 2007.
The Toyota Tundra provides a comfortable ride with smooth handling and accelerating power that helps differentiate it from other trucks that may be a bit more rough around the edges. Able to handle many different types of terrain, the vehicle has handling and braking to add more control at all speeds and with full cargo. While it's towing capacity may not pull like the Ford F-150, the Toyota Tundra's cargo load is still respectable.
Its middling fuel economy may deter some, but the Toyota Tundra competes well against other vehicles in its class. Though it may initially have come at a higher price, the Toyota Tundra's attractive exterior, available V8 engine, good towing capacity, comfortable passenger ride, and handling ensure that it should be considered when shopping for a used pickup.
This muscular vehicle comes with a V6 engine and can be optionally upgraded to a V8. It provides a comfortable ride with smooth handling that helps differentiate it from other trucks that may be a bit more rough around the edges.
