For those in the market for a pick up that offers excellent value for the selling price, you won’t want to pass up the chance to take home a 2015 Toyota Tundra. With available options to upgrade to CrewMax or diesel, you simply won’t be left sacrificing your priorities or settling for less. With a generous amount of space in the cab, you’ll still have some serious towing capability. Let’s get a little more in-depth on why the Toyota Tundra should be the next pickup parked in your driveway.
The 2015 Tundra is a pickup built to last that holds its resale value fairly firm, something many in the truck market like to keep an eye on as they like to upgrade every few years, or at least have the option to. Here are some of the upgrades you’ll find on the 2015 model of the Tundra:
• Back up camera
• Re-valved steering rack for an improved feel
• Improved suspension for a smoother ride
Power and Performance
Alright, we know this is what you’re really interested in. A truck can have great cargo capacity, spacious interior cab, and all the modern tech advances in the world but without the right stuff under the hood, your ride and towing capacity could be less than desirable. This is one area that the Tundra is certainly not lacking in, Toyota knows the name of the game and always puts their best foot forward, the 2015 model Tundra is no exception.
The 4.6L V8 engine boasts an impressive 310 horsepower and 327lb-ft of torque reaching up to 100 kilometres per hour in under seven seconds (about 6.8). Although every Toyota Tundra comes with this engine now, upgrades and available options mean more range when it comes to torque, the highest of which is 401lb-ft. With this amount of torque, you’re easily capable of pulling 4,305 kilograms, a capacity that is surely not going to leave you disappointed or high and dry in a sticky situation. For easier towing, Toyota has illuminated the trailer wiring port for easy access.
Ride in Luxury
As a truck owner, even though priorities lie in the actual amenities afforded by a truck in general, that doesn’t mean owners want to forego a little added luxury, if they can get it. When you drive the Tundra, you get just that. In all body styles of the Tundra, you can opt for the Limited trim and gain access to such features as power bucket seats and leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, and the coveted silver billet grille to make a statement while hauling cargo down the road.
Don’t forget Off-Roading
If off-roading is your thing, springing for the Tundra TRD Pro will garner you custom Bilstein shocks, big knobby tires (Michelin 32-inch), underbody skid plates and a run for your money. If off-road thrills at high speeds are your addiction, you’ve got a truck that will support your habit through and through.
