Toyota Tundra, a Truck Built to Do It All

October 8th, 2015 by

“Built to do it all” is Toyota’s slogan for the full-size 2016 Tundra, and it’s hard to argue against that. It’s because the Tundra is engineered to get any job done. It comes in a variety of body styles, bed lengths, and cab sizes that will fit anyone’s needs. With either the 4.6L or 5.7L V8 engine, you’ll never be lacking in horsepower and towing capability either. And don’t forget comfort. You’ll find all the leg room and plenty of options that makes the versatile Tundra a perfect choice for work, play, and family.

If you are considering a Toyota Tundra, you probably want to know more about it than what you’d see in a commercial or read on the sticker. In this post, we’ll cover some features and other information that may help in you decision process.

CrewMax Interior Packages

Not only does the Tundra have a plenty of cabin room regardless of if you choose the Regular Cab or CrewMax, you also have several interior package options with the CrewMax that stand above other trucks in its class.

  • 1794 Edition. This edition transforms the traditional comfort of the Tundra into luxury. The look and feel of the dash, buttons, gauges, and even the stitching are a testament to riding in style.
  • Platinum interior. With this edition, Toyota focuses on seating comfort. You can’t help but appreciate the seating surfaces and soft material.
  • Limited interior. Take control of your driving experience with leather-trimmed heated seats, fully adjustable steering wheel, and Entune™ Premium Audio system.

Fuel Tank

One of the most annoying things you have to do while on the job is having to fill up the tank before you get there. Thankfully, Toyota offers a 38 gallon fuel tank, the largest in its class, so there is less time spent filling up and more time spent getting things done.

American Design

If American made is a big selling point for you, then rest assured that every Toyota Tundra is assembled in a plant in San Antonio, Texas. The 1794 Edition takes its name from the ranch that was founded in 1794, on the same site on which the plant was built.

The Tundra is engineered in Michigan, by people who understand harsh conditions. They know what you’ll put your truck through and how you will expect it to perform when you do it.

Towing Power

Truck owners know that one the key factors in choosing a truck is towing power. The Toyota Tundra has you covered, whether you need to tow a boat to the lake for the weekend, or pull the other guy out of a jam. You get 22 configuration settings in six different trim levels that will allow you to tow up to 10,500 pounds. The intelligent TOW/HAUL mode holds a lower gear longer, so you’ll always be in the right gear. It also automatically adjusts throttle response and engine braking, so you can focus on where you’re going instead of what’s behind you.
