2016 Toyota Tundra Overview

Toyota promotes its Toyota Tundra as the full-size pickup truck "built to do it all." With a towing capacity of over 9,000 lbs, a choice of roomy cabs to suit your needs, and a choice of bed lengths, Toyota is on target. This is a pickup equally comfortable at work or play. If you are in search of a large pickup with power and muscular styling inside and out, it's worth learning more about the Tundra.

The 2016 Toyota Tundra is available in six models starting with the SR, SR5, and Limited. Higher-end models include the Platinum, the 1794 Edition, and the TRD Pro. The 1794 Edition was named for the founding year of the Texas ranch which is now the site of the Tundra assembly plant.

2016 Toyota Tundra History

The Tundra was the first full-size pickup truck to be built by a Japanese manufacturer on the North American continent. It was originally built in Princeton, Indiana, but is now built at the company's San Antonio, Texas, plant. It was initially referred to as the T150, but Ford claimed the name was too close to its popular F150 pickup, so Toyota chose Tundra instead.

  • The first Tundra was produced in 1999 for the 2000 model year.
  • Motor Trend named it their "Truck of the Year" in 2000 and 2008.
  • In 2007, a larger second generation of the truck was introduced.
  • A record 196,000 Tundras were produced in 2007.
  • The off-road themed "TRD Rock Warrior" truck debuted in 2009.
  • In 2012, a Tundra Crew Max pulled the Space Shuttle to the California Science Center.
  • The Tundra TRD Pro, the truck's sixth trim level, was introduced in 2016.

While sales of the Tundra dropped by more than half after the economic collapse of 2008, they have since rebounded and regularly exceed 100,000 units annually.

How It Drives

The Tundra comes in a choice of powerful V8 engines and a responsive six-speed transmission that transfers that power seamlessly. It has a throaty sound that is accented in the off-road TRD Pro edition. The TRD is especially impressive when driven off-road. The Tundra drives like the full-size truck it is, and the extra-large, 38-gallon fuel tank is especially useful considering fuel economy is not one of the truck's best features. It gets an estimated 15 to 19 mpg. The interior is exceptionally roomy, especially in the giant Crew Max edition.

Used 2016 Toyota Tundra Value

At just under a $30,000 MSRP, the 2016 Tundra was priced slightly above competitors like the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the Ford F-150. It was initially base-priced several thousand dollars more than the Ram 1500. Large pickup trucks like the Tundra tend to hold their value very well, and Toyota's reputation helps preserve Tundra's value on the used vehicle market.

Design & Performance

It is clear the 2016 Toyota Tundra has been designed to provide the power, cargo space, and towing capabilities to be a daily worker. The TRD Pro Editions are bolstered even further:

  • 18-inch off-road alloy wheels
  • Skid plates for the engine and fuel tank
  • Off-road tuned Bilstein shocks
  • Front tow hooks on rear-drive models

Off-road options are also available on the 1794 edition. This is a practical, well-designed truck engineered to perform reliably for years, if not decades.

Powertrain & Engine

The 2016 Tundra is available in a choice of two engines, a 5.7L V8 and a 4.6L V8. No diesel or V6 power plants are available, confirming Toyota's philosophy that sometimes less is more. The 5.7L power plant delivers 381 hp at 5600 rpm. The 4WD Tundra features A-TRAC, a traction control system. A-TRAC utilizes the four-channel ABS system to control power to the front and rear wheels. It accomplishes this without stopping throttle input, which aids in providing traction almost anywhere you take it. The Tundra has a six-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission. The larger 5.7L engine includes a tow/haul transmission mode.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The 2016 Tundra is available in three different cab styles, all providing excellent head, shoulder, and leg room. It is also found in three different bed lengths. While some competitors moved to a more rounded exterior appearance for this model year, the Tundra maintained its high-profile, muscular styling. Inside, the Tundra is clean and well-designed. While not "plush," the interior is practical.

Technology is used conservatively in the Tundra. New for 2016:

  • SR models come standard with Toyota's Entune infotainment system.
  • SR5 models have added navigation.
  • Blind spot warning is standard with the 1794 model.
  • A JBL premium audio system is standard in Platinum and 1794 editions.

While some pickups have moved to luxury SUV-style design features, the 2016 Tundra has remained loyal to its truck roots, both inside and out. It is indeed, "Built to do it all."
