The Toyota of Full-size Trucks
If you're one of the Big Three (Ford, General Motors and Chrysler), you don't have much trouble moving your full-size truck offering thanks to the cult-like following you've built up over the last five decades. What if you're not one of the aforementioned Detroit-based automakers though? Toyota is in the latter group but many people may not know that the Tundra is, in fact, built right here in the United States. Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Texas was established back in 2003 and today manufactures both the full-size Tundra and midsize Tacoma trucks.
Straight from our full review of the 2015 Toyota Tundra: "On road and off, Toyota's full-size truck is still formidable. Its standard 310-horsepower, 4.6-liter V8 is more than acceptable for lighter duties, while the 381-horsepower, 5.7-liter V8 is up for almost any task (yes, it famously pulled the Space Shuttle over a bridge). On the open road, the Tundra's cabin is surprisingly quiet."

"The optional 5.7-liter V8 is the go-to choice for towing...or driving like an idiot." See the Toyota Tundra get just a little bit sideways in this otherwise sensible and utterly informative video review:

KBB.com visitor and Tundra owner Pete kept comments about his truck short and sweet: "I only wish it got better gas mileage but I can't complain about the power and comfort. If they ever bring out a diesel I'll buy it." Read more consumer reviews of the Toyota Tundra.
