Driving Impressions

The Tundra is more polished than regular residential pickups, and it produces a rewarding flight without much excess jumping or violence. Besides a little engine drone, it's also silent for a pick-up. The seats are comfortable in the roomy taxi, and the StepSide freight box includes additional panache.
