The Tundra is Reliable

The Toyota brand has become synonymous with reliability over the years. Toyota was ranked number one in ‘Customer Satisfaction’ in the American Customer Satisfaction Index and has the greatest durability of any automotive manufacturer in the world. The Tundra is no exception to the durability rule. It has ranked best in resale and reliability over the last ten years meaning it’s a truck you can count on in tough situations. Plus, with a Toyota Maintenance and Roadside Assistance Package, you are covered across the board.

The Tundra is Powerful

The 2018 Tundra is equipped with a 4.6-liter V8 that delivers 310 horsepower and 327 lb.-ft. of torque. A 5.7-liter V8 that puts out 381 horsepower and 401 lb.-ft. is standard on regular-cab models as well as the TRD Pro, Limited, Platinum and 1794 Edition. Both V8s are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Depending on the body configuration and equipment, your Tundra can easily tow up to 10,000 lbs. Toyota has also equipped the Tundra with an available two-piece driveshaft and massive 10.5-in. ring gear so this pickup can tackle any passion project you want to undertake.

The Tundra is Spacious and Comfortable

The Tundra is a truly well-rounded. Not only does it offer generous legroom throughout the back, the Tundra Crew Max outdoes itself with an enormous amount of space for passengers and even a reclining rear seats. The power rear windows also make life easier allowing the whole window to drop down.

The Tundra is Award-Worthy

The Toyota Tundra has been named the “Most Dependable Large Pickup” for by J.D. Power and Associates for over seven years. It was also named one of the few pickups that consumers had the lowest number of problems per 100 vehicles, according to a J.D. Power and Associates 2006-2012 Vehicle Dependability Study.

The Tundra Drive

Everything about the Toyota Tundra drive is amazing. Throttle response and feel and seating position take the Tundra to a new level, besting competitors like the Ford F-150 and Chevy Ram. It offers an exceptionally smooth ride even when it’s plowing through snowy back country roads. Its further proof Toyota understands that an aggressive exterior doesn’t mean you can’t have a comfortable and luxurious interior.
