Toyota Tundra is the Perfect Truck for Summer, says Forbes
Review praises roomier Tundra that lets you take summer fun along with you, whether it’s storing a bike or towing a boat.
Recently, Forbes spent a week with the Tundra Limited and discovered something that we already knew: this Tundra (as well as all of the Tundra trims available on the market now) is the perfect summer truck.
One of the big pluses the business-minded crew took away from their experience is how much room the Tundra has inside and out (it is built in Texas, after all). Whether it’s “a load of wood, a house full of junk, a few bicycles, a set of drums or most anything else you can think of,” the Tundra can take it all inside its lockable, 22.2-inch deep bed and 1,730-pound payload capacity.
Though the Tundra is a giant among trucks, this truck is welcoming to all sizes, whether you’re as small as Ruby Rose or as tall as Bayonetta. Forbes says its interior is a cozy place to be, whether you’re driving the 381 horses from its 5.7-liter DOHC V8, or taking a nap on the backseat. And speaking of those horses, the 401 lb-ft of torque they create is more than enough to pull a boat out to Lake Texoma, which you’ll be able to see through its heated power tow mirrors with manual extend.
The business magazine did find a few flaws with the Tundra, such as the 14 mpg city/19 mpg highway EPA rating, bouncy ride, and wide-turning circle better suited for open fields than city life. Those issues do little to take away from the truck’s big fun, though, earning “a hearty thumbs-up” from the magazine known for shining the spotlight on G6s and Bentleys.
