TOYOTA TUNDRA ACCESSORIES & PARTS

    About Toyota Tundra


    Ever since its debut in 2000, the Toyota Tundra has been a full-size success. Originally designated as the T150, the company later changed the name to avoid any confusion with Ford's F-150. What separates the Tundra from other imported pickups is the truck's domestic touch. It is bolder and more powerful than previous foreign attempts in the segment, giving it more in common with traditional American nameplates such as Ford and Chevy. The first generation Tundra started off powered by a 3.4L V6 engine, but a 4.7L V8 was later introduced, marking the first time a Toyota truck would be offered with a V8 engine. Right from the start, the Toyota Tundra was a hit. It held the record for highest initial sales for Toyota and also took home Motor Trend's Truck of the Year. Toyota needed a truck that could compete with the big boys and the Tundra parts delivered an immediate impact the entire industry took notice of.

    The Tundra would see a supercharger become available courtesy of Toyota Racing Development, upping the previous horsepower of the V6 to 260 HP and the V8 in the mid 300s. In 2003, the Tundra's cab and grille were updated. A year later, the bed was extended and proved to be longer than the Nissan Titan or Ford's venerable 1-50. A Double Cab model with four doors was also offered and the interior and exterior Tundra parts saw detailing. Both engine options were upgraded come 2005, with a 4.0L V6 replacing the original 3.4L engine and the V8 being scrapped in favor of a VVT-I variable valve timing engine capable of 271 HP. Transmissions included a 6-speed manual as well as 5-speed automatic. These updates helped the Tundra stay relevant in a highly competitive field, as the Tundra still was not known for the towing capacity of its domestic counterparts. The Darrel Waltrip Edition was introduced in 2006 in recognition of the NASCAR driver's run in the Truck Series. This version of the Tundra was a Double Cab V8 powered model with 18 inch wheels and unique exterior badging.

    Showcasing flared-out fenders and a slightly larger overall build, the 2007 Toyota Tundra arrived new and improved. Many different choices were available, including three bed lengths, four wheelbases, two transmissions, and three cab options. The engines available are 5.7L V8, 4.7L V8, and a 4.0L V6. Toyota also began to move more towards the industrial demographic, as the Tundra now sports larger door handles and a deck rail system. Standard features such as Vehicle Stability Control, traction control, brake assist, and electronic brake distribution are other upgrades that have received a fair amount of attention. Not surprisingly, the Toyota Tundra has been a strong seller. Since 2000, the model has averaged over 120,000 units sold per year with 2007 coming in at an impressive 196,555. Even in a fuel-conscious market, the Toyota Tundra has managed to stay towards the top of the full-size segment.

    The 2007-2011 Toyota Tundra to be recalled

    It is a well-known fact that every time an automaker makes a mistake, he outwears the patience of brand devotees. Each recall of the model may cost the automaker a certain quantity of frustrated customers. This fact in its turn may lead to profit decreasing. Nevertheless no one is perfect. This time it was Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC who announced about recall of 2007-2011 Toyota Tundra. Under the report of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration the ground for recall is the tire pressure monitoring system. Contrary to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, due to the improper calibration of TPMS on some vehicles, low tire pressure warning lamp may not illuminate. This means the driver is not informed about inflation pressure in one or more tires falling below the threshold. According to the NHTSA estimations, this defect may lead to a crash and thus increase the quantity of accidents.

    About 1,629 Toyota Tundra vehicles are considered to be affected. The management of Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC notifies the owners about the defect. The dealers propose the owners to solve the problem free of charge. The tire pressure system will be re-calibrated in accordance with the regulations. The recalls are limited to those pickups delivered by Southeast Toyota Distributors.

    Toyota to Persevere with the Tundra
    Toyota to Persevere with the Tundra

    When it debuted in 2000, the Toyota Tundra appeared to have enough capability to take truck buyers away from Detroit. Embracing the genuine American truck style, Toyota’s full-sized pickup was nominated for the North American Truck of the Year and became the Motor Trend magazine’s Truck of the Year in 2000 and 2008.

    However, after getting off to a flying start in both the first and second generations, the Toyota Tundra has eventually lost ground with less than 80,000 vehicles sold in 2009. No doubt, global recession has affected sales, but the notable recall issues have also sapped the Tundra’s credibility.

    Despite this unlucky streak, Toyota is reportedly not going to abandon the Tundra production. According to the sources inside the Japanese automotive giant, a next-gen Tundra will likely be released as a 2014 model. Taking into consideration tough fuel economy standards slated to come into effect for 2016, the new Tundra will have to incorporate a good bunch of upgrades and revisions.

    "We need a more truck-like or bold styling than we currently have," Mike Sweers, Tundra chief engineer, told the Wall Street Journal. Mr. Sweers also said that a new model will feature a larger fuel tank to give customers better range. "They are not so interested in whether you get 21 or 22 mpg on the highway. It's more about how far can I go with a tank of fuel," he added.

    To the record, the Toyota Tundra is currently assembled in San Antonio, Texas, along with the Tacoma pickups.

    Toyota Tundra Named Best Overall Value for 2011
    Toyota Tundra Named Best Overall Value for 2011

    IntelliChoice, the automotive industry’s premier analyst of ownership cost and car value, has named the Toyota Tundra the best overall full-size truck value for 2011. The “Best Overall Value of the Year” (BOVY) award was established to recognize best-in-class vehicles that deliver outstanding quality/value ratio and lower than expected costs over time. In other words, it helps consumers determine, which vehicle can give them the most bang for their buck.

    The winners were selected based on their overall cost, including maintenance, repairs and resale. The Toyota Tundra was quite a logical winner as it shows strong performance in resale value and repairs that are the two most important components of overall value.

    Toyota’s full-size truck can also boast the positive safety ratings - the 2011 IIHS ratings for the Tundra are “Good” across the board, which surely helps lower insurance costs.

    IntelliChoice BOVY Award is not the first accolade under the Tundra’s belt. The Toyota Tundra has been consistently ranked at or near the top of JD Power and Consumer Reports reliability ratings since the truck debuted in 2000.
