What to know when Buying Toyota Tundra
Performance and Specifications of Toyota Tundra
The first generation Tundra had many similarities with the older Toyota T100 and the compact Toyota Tacoma. The biggest of those similarities was the shared use of a 3.4-liter V6 engine which was the top of the line engine in both the Tacoma and T100. The V6 engine would serve as the base engine for the Tundra, while a second engine, a first for a Toyota truck, a V8 engine sized at 4.7-liters was added to the lineup. The main characteristics of Toyota Tundra are as follows:
- It is a full sized truck and comes in either two door (single cabin) or four door (double cabin) styles.
- It is available in both petrol and diesel versions.
- It is available in five speed manual and five speed automatic transmission.
- Although it is found in different engine sizes, the most commonly found engine volume is 4.7L in a four stroke configuration.
How is the design of Toyota Tundra
Publicly introduced in May 1999 as a 2000 model, the Tundra prototypes and "show trucks" were initially known as T150s. The Tundra was slightly larger than the iconic Toyota T100, but still suffered the perception of being too small and car-like to pose a serious threat to the domestic pickup trucks. With a production capacity of 120,000, sales were double the rate of the T100. At the time the Tundra also had the largest initial vehicle sales for Toyota in its history. It garnered impressive honors, including Motor Trend's Truck of the Year award for 2000 and Best Full- Size Truck from Consumer Reports.
