2001 toyota Tundra

2001 Toyota Tundra: The Tundra was introduced for 2000 as the initial full-size Japanese pick-up, and also it carries over for 2001 with marginal adjustment. The Expanse changed the midsize T100 in Toyota's schedule and also challenges the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado, Dodge Ram and also the GMC Sierra, the full-size residential pick-ups.

Developed at a new Toyota plant in southern Indiana, the Tundra also is the initial pickup from a Japanese maker to offer a V-8 engine. The Expanse's design is the foundation for the business's full-size sport utility vehicle, the Sequoia, produced at the same plant.

The Expanse comes as a routine taxi with an 8-foot cargo bed and as an extended taxicab (called Gain access to Taxicab) with a 6.5-foot bed. The Accessibility Taxi has rear-hinged rear doors on both sides that could not be opened till the front doors are opened. The Expanse, nevertheless, has exterior deals with for the rear doors rather than in the doorjamb.

Both body styles have a 128-inch wheelbase and also an overall size of 217 inches. Comparative, the Ford F-150 routine cab with an 8-foot bed and the F-150 Super Taxicab with a 6.5-foot bed are both 224 inches long.

The Tundra's maximum haul is 2,000 pounds, while the F-150's maximum is 3,180 extra pounds.


An eye-catching, properly designed control panel areas all controls where they are simple to see as well as get to in the Expanse, as well as front-seat owners get comfy, roomy holiday accommodations. But the three-place rear seat on the Access Taxicab is as well small for adults unless the front seats are pushed well forward. The back seat is as flat as a board, with a short, tough pillow and also back-rest. The back padding is divided, as well as both halves quickly fold up to develop more storage space.

Regular taxis as well as Gain access to Taxis come with either two bucket seats or a front bench seat that holds 3. Leather upholstery is optional on the top-line Restricted version.

Under the Hood

A 190-horsepower 3.4-liter V-6 engine is standard and also teams with either a five-speed guidebook or four-speed automatic transmission. A 245-hp 4.7-liter V-8 is optional and comes only with the automatic.

The Tundra's four-wheel-drive system enables altering in or from 4WD High on the move through control panel controls. Four-wheel antilock brakes are optional across the board.

Driving Impacts

The Expanse supplies fewer options in sizes and engines compared to its domestic competitors, and it falls short in payload as well as towing capability. However with the V-8, this is perhaps the smoothest, most fine-tuned pick-up readily available. Everything fits and runs with precision, and also the Tundra seems like it was made by Lexus-- Toyota's luxury department.
