TORONTO, ON: the Toyota Tundra has proven – time and again – that it’s up to the task. And for 2019, Toyota offers its full-size pick-up truck in a range of models and trim levels, highlighted by an enhanced pair of Toyota Tundra TRD Pro models that are more capable than ever. So, what are you waiting for?
Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. said “Pick-up truck owners are incredibly loyal to their favourite brand – but this pick-up was designed to turn heads and change minds. We’re confident that one test drive will demonstrate the advantages – and value – of the Toyota Tundra.”
A great pick-up truck starts with a great heart – and the heart of the Tundra is a powerful, responsive and efficient powertrain. Most Tundra models are built around Toyota’s proven 5.7 litre i-FORCE V8 engine, delivering up to 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque, and paired to a six-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift mode operation. All models with the 5.7L engine are also standard equipped with a 144L fuel tank, lock-up torque converter, trailer brake controller, and Toyota’s Tow Package. 4×4 models feature a one-touch 4WD mode with auto limited slip rear differential, active traction control, and trailer sway control.
Tundra’s rugged style gives it immediate curb appeal, with a bold and chiselled body. Standard exterior features of note include LED daytime running lights and power adjustable and heated folding exterior mirrors.
Inside, the Tundra cabin is spacious and features many standard amenities to make Tundra a comfortable place to spend long days on the job or on the road. These include a Display Audio system with touchscreen, USB audio input and steering wheel-mounted controls, Bluetooth® connectivity, air conditioning, power locks and windows, a 4.2” multi-information display, and more.
Safety is also a full-size feature in the Toyota Tundra. Every model is outfitted with Toyota Safety Sense P – an industry-leading bundle of active safety technologies included as standard equipment on 95 percent of all new vehicles Toyota sells in Canada. TSS P features the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. These work together to enhance driver capabilities to mitigate collisions, stay in lane, and see at night. Other safety systems include the Toyota Star Safety System, eight airbags, a back-up camera, and a direct tire pressure monitoring system.
The Toyota Tundra is offered in a range of models and trim levels priced from MSRP: $39,625) to $61,530.
