5 reasons to buy the 2017 Toyota Tundra

1. V8 powertrains

2017 Toyota Tundra: Engine | CarMax

The 2017 Toyota Tundra is equipped with standard V8 power to tackle big jobs. The base engine is a 310 hp 4.6L V8 with 327 lb-ft of torque (standard on SR and SR5), which can tow an estimated 6,800 lbs. when properly equipped.

Stepping up to the 5.7L V8 engine (standard on Limited and higher trims; optional on SR and SR5) unlocks 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. This powerplant is well suited to pulling heavy loads, with an estimated 10,500-lb. towing capacity when properly equipped.
Both engines pair with a six-speed automatic transmission and are available with RWD or 4WD.

2. Many cab and bed configurations

2017 Toyota Tundra: Front Seats | CarMax

If you're looking for a full-size pickup for around the job site or home, the 2017 Toyota Tundra offers several body styles with different cab and bed configurations to suit your needs. Regular Cab models (available on the SR trim) provide seating for three passengers with an 8.1-ft bed, while Double Cab Tundras (available on SR, SR5, Limited, and TRD Pro trims) seat six passengers and offer 6.5-ft or 8.1-ft bed lengths. The CrewMax (available on 2017 Toyota Tundra SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition, and TRD Pro trims) is king of the road for comfort, offering seating for five passengers, 42.3 inches of rear-seat legroom, and a 5.5-ft bed. Whatever your needs, the 2017 Tundra works hard to serve.

3. Off-Road TRD Pro

2017 Toyota Tundra: Full-size Truck | CarMax

Looking for a full-size truck to navigate off-road adventures? The 2017 Toyota Tundra has a TRD Pro trim that's made to dominate. This model pairs TRD-tuned springs to oversize 2.5-inch Bilstein® shocks for two inches of extra lift in the front for traveling over tough terrain, while the rear also gets Bilstein shocks with TRD off-road leaf springs for extra dampening. Eighteen-inch black alloy wheels allow the 2017 Tundra TRD Pro to claw through rugged surfaces, and the heavy-duty aluminum skid plate protects the truck's underside from rocks and debris. When you fire up the V8 engine, your senses will awaken to the sound of the TRD performance dual exhaust system's throaty growl.

4. Smart storage

Whether transporting your crew or family, the 2017 Toyota Tundra offers smart storage solutions to keep belongings organized. CrewMax models come standard with a fixed center console with a covered storage compartment to keep your measuring tape and notebook close at hand. Double Cab and CrewMax Tundras also feature split fold-up rear seats that create more usable cabin space for loading cargo. Adding the available overhead console keeps small items, like sunglasses, conveniently positioned to grab and go. All 2017 Tundras also come standard with a glove compartment to keep essentials within reach.

5. Driver aids

The Toyota Tundra features several standard driver aids to help you feel confident behind the wheel. All 2017 models include an integrated backup camera to simplify reverse parking moves or hitching up a trailer. Cruise control is also included on all trims to ensure a comfortable drive. The standard trailer-sway control, which is an electronic system that maintains handling under adverse conditions, makes hauling heavy loads easier and stress-free. A blind-spot monitoring system with cross-traffic alert is available on all trims (except the SR) to identify vehicles lurking in the truck's blind spot.

Year comparison

2007-2021 Toyota Tundra (Second Generation)

Released in 2007, the second-generation Toyota Tundra featured three engines with automatic transmissions: a 4.0L V6, a 4.7L V8, and an all-new 5.7L V8. In 2010, the 4.7L V8 was replaced with a 4.6L V8, and the 4.0L V6 upped its horsepower and torque the following year. A four-door CrewMax body style was introduced in 2013, along with the Platinum trim.

In 2014, the Tundra overhauled its front-end and interior, and the Western-themed 1794 Edition trim joined the lineup. In 2015, the 4.0L V6 was discontinued and the 4.6L V8 followed in 2020, leaving the 5.7L V8 as the sole engine option. 2020 also saw the addition of Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto capabilities as standard equipment. The 2021 model year added Trail and Nightshade special editions.
