If you're on the hunt for a practical, comfortable and powerful work truck, consider the 2017 Toyota Tundra. This pickup has become a legend for its rugged dependability and reliability. What's more, it packs plenty of power, without sacrificing fuel efficiency, so you're not always stopping at the gas pump. You can get all kinds of great features, including 4x4, bed accessories and other upgrades intended for working and playing hard.
With a total of six models available for 2017, you can easily find the Toyota Tundra of your dreams. The lineup runs the range from basic to downright luxurious, with quite a few advanced technologies available.
When it comes to power, you get a choice between two excellent engines. One is a 4.6-liter V-8 with 32 valves, which pumps out 310 horsepower and 327 lb.-ft. of torque. Thanks to the dual independent variable valve timing with intelligence, no matter the RPMs, you have plenty of power available.
The second engine is a 5.7-liter V-8, which also features 32 valves and the same advanced technologies. As a result, you have 381 horsepower and a whopping 401 lb.-ft. of torque on tap.
Toyota includes even more capability for this truck. For example, the rear differential features a huge 10.5-inch ring gear, which accommodates the 4.30 rear axle ratio for aggressive performance. All models come with an automatic limited slip differential, which applies the brakes to wheels without traction, but without reducing engine output at the same time. The clever design helps eliminate expensive and failure-prone parts.
You don’t have to worry if your truck actively works to keep you safe from accidents, and can guard everyone in a collision, if you go with the Toyota Tundra. Advanced systems use practical methods to achieve real results.
For example, the Active Traction Control or A-Trac, utilizes the ABS brakes system to regulate how much power goes to each of the four wheels. It does so without reducing throttle input, so you always enjoy plenty of traction.
By adding the optional blind spot monitoring system, you also get rear cross-traffic alert. Both systems warn when another vehicle is outside of your view, so you can guard against the danger and hopefully avoid an accident.
All models feature the Star Safety System. It bundles together six vital safety features: antilock brakes, brake assist, electronic brake force distribution, Smart Stop Technology, vehicle stability control and traction control. Each works constantly to keep drivers in control of the truck.
Because the Toyota Tundra works hard, engineers and designers included all kinds of clever conveniences to make everyday life easier. Fold-up rear seats allow you to load taller or wider items in the cabin, if you want to protect that item from the elements.
If you get the bucket front seats, you also benefit from a massive front center console. It adds a large covered storage area, and a 12-volt power outlet. Other conveniences include an easy lower and lift tailgate you can operate with only two fingers, an optional deck rail system, leather upholstery and seat heaters, to name a few.
