In partnership with our sister site, Pickup Truck Headquarters, our review vehicle this week is the 2016 Toyota Tundra Limited with 4-wheel drive. This V8-powered pickup truck isn’t one of the Big 3 competitors, but Toyota has carved out a healthy niche for their product. Heck, the Tundra is the only pickup truck to ever pull a space shuttle!
Our $43,825 Tundra Limited is actually pretty well-equipped for the money. It includes blind spot monitoring, forward and rear park aids, a rearview camera, satellite navigation, and more. Powering this Tundra, like most other Tundras, is a 5.7L i-Force V8 making 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. It’ll even run on E85.
But trucks aren’t about features as much as they are about getting work done. The Tundra has a 4.30 rear axle ratio and has a SAE J2807 towing capacity of 9,500 lbs.
We’ve already ran the truck through our fuel economy maximization test procedure, which you can read about here.
Stay tuned next week for our full review, and if you have any questions about the truck, ask us in the comments below!
