Toyota Tundra 2011

Toyota Tundra 2011: Toyota went for the jugular in the 2007 design year when it introduced the second-generation Tundra. It showed off an effective 5.7-liter V-8 engine as well as six-speed automatic.
Today, the Tundra encounters much stiffer competition from Chevrolet, Ram trucks, GMC and also Ford half-ton pick-ups, all of which have actually been updated or changed since 2007.

The Tundra can be found in two- or 4x4, and in three taxi styles: regular taxicab, Dual Cab and CrewMax. The CrewMax is the largest cab in the half-ton sector because Chrysler discontinued the Mega Cab alternative for the Dodge Ram 1500.

Toyota Tundra 2011


New for 2011

Toyota has actually introduced several mechanical as well as feature adjustments for the 2011 Tundra light-duty pickup truck.

The 2011 Tundra will get numerous indoor updates that consist of ceasing an ashtray as a basic attribute and replacing the cigarette lighter with a 12-volt power electrical outlet. The headrests have actually been changed with a brand-new style.

Mechanical adjustments consist of updating the base 4.0-liter V-6 engine with a double VVT-i system with roller rockers as well as hydraulic lifters that could variably change both the consumption as well as exhaust valves for enhanced performance and also performance. The 4.0-liter V-6 makes 270 horsepower and also 278 pounds-feet of torque, up 34 hp and also 12 pounds-feet from the 2006-2010 Tundra.

To help boost hauling safety, trailer-sway control programming and also brake bypass technology have been included as conventional devices. Trailer-sway control makes use of a vehicle's security control sensors to detect unintentional side-to-side motion at the rear wheels while towing and makes use of the vehicle's anti-skid brakes system to help counteract yaw brought on by unwanted trailer activity. A trailer brake controller permits the chauffeur to control the quantity of gain (brake boost) applied to the trailer's electric brakes when the driver applies the car's brakes.

Opposing a trend that's gotten momentum in the past decade, Toyota has lowered the maximum trailer-towing ranking of the Tundra half-ton for 2011, in one instance approximately 1,100 extra pounds.
