Superiority? Toyota is drawing no punches by introducing among the greatest, best, and the majority of qualified automobiles in the section, along with spending billions in a new advanced manufacturing plant in the heart of vehicle country-San Antonio, Texas. Importance? With Toyota aiming to greater than increase its visibility in the fiercely contested half-ton market, the Tundra represents one of the most extremely prepared for new lorry launches in many years-- vehicle or vehicle. Value? The new Tundra offers three various powertrains (one V-6 and also two V-8s), with the 5.7-liter V-8 a modern marvel and also torque beast-- and is amongst the most powerful engines in any kind of half-ton arrangement. Toyota's platform has the entire sector covered with three different bed sizes, three different wheelbases covering five various taxicab and bed setups, incorporated with 3 various trim packages (Tundra Quality, SR5, as well as Limited) in 4 × 4 as well as 4 × 2 drivetrains-- 44 various truck tastes to interested purchasers, from job truck to high-end touring.

Offering that sort of range right from eviction is impressive as well as enthusiastic; actually, some may claim too enthusiastic. The recent launch of the new Tundra has not lacked a few hiccups. Several months ago, an early output of camshafts in the 5.7-liter V-8 were falling short. Toyota informs us they traced down all the damaged parts to a details set and have actually since made the corrections to the style. No failings have actually surfaced considering that. Extra just recently, there have actually been some reports of transmission shudder under particular low-speed problems, which dealerships have actually mapped to a torque converter problem. Toyota says these occurrences were isolated and also have also been fixed. And ultimately, there's been chatter online concerning tailgate problems, which Toyota remains in the process of locating. Our guess is a number of these stories spread like wildfire, provided the lightning-rod effect this new truck is having with enthusiasts and also the speed with which a Net thing could travel. With all that claimed, let's take a deeper take a look at just what's unique about our 2008 champion.

As discussed in the introduction to this unique area, we ran our competitors via a collection of on- and off-road courses at a working Arizona proving-ground facility, subjecting all our test systems to a rigorous collection of standards. It remained in our work-duty testing that the Tundra initially began to catch our focus, with the 5.7-liter V-8 Restricted CrewMax Tundra running miles ahead of the competition, with and also without a crammed trailer in tow (note our performance evaluation in the tale and the Tundra's winning Performance Score). The Tundra confirmed itself a celebrity gamer in simple dress (Dual Taxicab Tundra Grade, 4.7 L V-8; $27K), along with in fully spruced up (CrewMax Limited, 5.7 L V-8; $47K). When dressed down, the front bench seats allows for a column shifter and work-truck rush with a dual glovebox and also concealed facility storage compartment under the facility seat. Our completely filled version had flexible leather captain's chairs and also a huge facility console storage bin, big sufficient to hold a couple of laptop computers and serve as a declaring cupboard. The CrewMax design, with its prolonged guest cabin, offers a gliding back seat with drop-forward as well as slide-forward capability.

Among the more important indoor comforts, cabin quiet (while driving on harsh roads or at freeway speeds) is probably the Tundra's most remarkable quality. If there's a quieter vehicle out there, we have not driven it. Only 2 beefs with the inside: the center stack's excessive dimension as well as visual split (appears like it's cut in two) as well as the place of the navigation system almost out of arm's reach for the vehicle driver.

Is it the best truck? That all depends upon exactly what you need, but by providing 44 different flavor selections, Toyota anticipates to have what you're seeking, packing heavy-duty truck capacities right into a half-ton vehicle that's quiet and also solid. After some dispute, the majority of our judges concur: One of the most deserving competitor for Electric motor Fad's 2008 Vehicle of the Year title is the all-new Toyota Tundra.
