Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
For 2011, the Tundra's base 4.0-liter V6 receives dual variable valve timing for more power and better fuel economy (horsepower increases from 236 to 270), while trailer sway control is made standard on all models. Toyota has streamlined the Tundra lineup down to the 28 most popular configurations.
For 2010, the Toyota Tundra gets a slight exterior and interior freshening. A new 4.6-liter V8 is available as are some new trim levels, exterior equipment add-ons and two new audio options. New standard features include a driver's side knee airbag and height-adjustable headlamps.
For 2009, the Toyota Tundra adds two new TRD trim packages. The TRD Sport emphasizes and aggressive street appearance, while the Rock Warrior edition is geared more toward off-road adventuring. An E85-compatible 5.7-liter V8 is now available in certain regions.
Given the hype surrounding the introduction of Toyota's all-new Tundra, you'd think Toyota's product team had discovered at least a cure for the common cold. A full-size truck from Toyota is big news and, after Toyota's two previous attempts at the full-size market (the T-100, introduced in 1993, and the first-generation Tundra, introduced in 2000), it does heighten expectations. The newest Tundra is not, however, the reinvention of the pickup. Rather, with its new Tundra, Toyota hopes to hit the sweet spot in the marketplace and, while not reinventing the pickup, its launch significantly raises the stakes in the full-size segment.
