2012 toyota Tundra Grade

2012 Toyota Tundra Grade: Toyota went for the jugular in the 2007 model year when it introduced the second-generation Tundra full-size pickup with a powerful 5.7-liter V-8 engine and six-speed transmission. Today, the Tundra encounters much stiffer competitors from Chevrolet, Ram, GMC as well as Ford half-ton pick-ups, all of which have been upgraded or changed since 2007. Particular configurations of the Tundra can seat up to six people.

The Tundra can be found in two- or 4x4 as well as in three cab designs: normal taxi, Double Cab and also CrewMax. The CrewMax is the biggest taxi in the half-ton sector given that Chrysler terminated the Mega Taxi alternative for the Ram 1500. The CrewMax comes just with a 5-foot, 6-inch bed, while other versions can be ordered with either a 6.5-foot or an 8-foot cargo bed.
