New 2015 Toyota Tundra definitely have interesting and promising appearance, however it’s not as efficient as other competitors may be.
This full-size pickup can be ordered in three styles of the body: regular cab with two doors, double cab with four doors and crew cab with four doors (CrewMax). They let you choose between length of beds – 8.1 long bed, 6.5-foot bed (standard) and 5.5-foot short bed – and two wheelbases. 6 trim levels are available: the coolest TRD Pro, Platinum, 1794 Edition and Limited, as well as SR5 and SR.
From the outside 2015 Toyota Tundra looks bulky; this is common for a truck with big capacity. It got novel hood and radiator grille. Tundra TRD Pro has some novel off-road attachments for more dynamic appearance. Even though Tundra is not very stylish inside, it is still comprehensible and features big dashboard controls.
V8 engine with 4.6 liter that provides 310 horsepower or exclusive V8 with 5.7 liter providing 381 horsepower are the basic engines depending on model. SR double-cab models and any SR5 model feature the first engine connected with six-speed auto transmission. The second engine comes as standard on four-wheel drive regular cabs and any Platinum, Limited, TRD Pro and 1794 model, but it is optional for other models.
Fuel economy for 4.6 liter engine with FWD configuration is 14 (city) and 18 (highway) mileage per gallon. 5.7 liter here reaches 13 and 17 mpg. 4.6 liter engine with 2WD configuration provides 15/19 mpg (city/highway), while 5.7 liter – 13/15. All these specs testify that Tundra cannot be recognized as really efficient type of car.
Price is quite high – 2015 Toyota Tundra MSRP starts from $42,165.
