2017 Toyota Tundra
Although Japanese manufacturers are best known throughout the rest of the world for compact and midsize pickups, the Tundra proves Toyota is just as skilled at full-size trucks as well, equipping the 2017 Toyota Tundra with style, features, spacious cabs, performance, and luxury.
2017 Toyota Tundra
Not your traditional full-size look.
If you’re looking for something that’s exactly the same as a domestic full-size pickup, you’re not going to find it with the 2017 Toyota Tundra. Although it’s more like an American full-size than many foreign truck designs, it also carries a large element of the style that’s made Toyota pickups so popular around the world. It’s beefy and slightly rugged on the outside, although it certainly doesn’t adopt the “flying brick” look of many domestic trucks. Despite the fact it’s been around a while, the Tundra looks very contemporary and, dare we say it, attractive? If you’re looking for something a little different than the trucks you see on the job or in the parking lot, the 2017 Toyota Tundra confidently provides it.
Go on, step inside.
If you haven’t been up close and personal with a 2017 Toyota Tundra recently, you might assume it’s on the smaller end of the full-size pickup scale, but you’d be wrong. It’s actually as wide as it’s legally allowed to be to still qualify as a full-size, and that has a big bearing on how you’ll find it inside the cab. Buyers have the choice of Regular, Double Cab (extended cab), and CrewMax formats, and all of them offer copious amounts of interior space. With six different trim levels of SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition and TRD Pro, the Tundra can range from the utilitarian and workmanlike to as luxurious as you could wish.
Plenty of bells and whistles.
We might not have the dizzying array of specifications and combinations of beds, engines, and suspension setups seen with some full-size trucks, but the 2017 Toyota Tundra provides just about everything the majority of buyers will need. The entry level Tundra SR comes with standard tech features including an AM/FM/CD stereo, smartphone connectivity, a 6.1-inch touchscreen, USB and iPod connectivity, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, and even voice recognition. From there, it just gets better and better with features like high-quality heated and ventilated leather seats, a premium 12-speaker JBL sound system, a power moon roof, parking sensors, and more.
WIth two engines to choose between for the Tundra, it’s fair to say neither is exactly lacking in power. No wimpy V-6s on deck here– both options are V-8s! The bigger option is an i-Force 5.7-liter, producing 381 horsepower and 401 lb.-ft. of torque, while the more fuel-efficient alternative is a 4.6-liter version that puts 310 horsepower and 327 lb.-ft. at your disposal. Both are strong, powerful engines and the suspension is tuned to deliver a comfortable ride all the time. Looking to go hardcore off-roady? Opt for the TRD Pro, which gives you all the upgrades you need to cope with the rough stuff.
The 2017 Toyota Tundra has carved out a very nice full-sized truck nice of its very own. Offering something different, combining the capability and size of a full-size with the styling of a midsized pickup truck, the Tundra appeals to those who want to look and be a little different than the crowd. With trims that offer nearly anything you could need, the Tundra is a full-size pickup that’s as at home in the urban jungle as it is in the literal one.
