2005 Tundra Overview

The Toyota Tundra gets a significant increase in power for 2005, and fuel economy has been improved.A new 4.0-liter V6 delivers 245 horsepower, matching the output of last year's V8 and representing an increase in power of nearly 30 percent over last year's V6.Meanwhile, the 4.7-liter double overhead-cam V8 has been refined with Toyota's VVT-i technology, bringing it up to 282 horsepower, an increase of 42 horsepower over last year's V8.Both engines are now available with responsive five-speed automatics; and the V6 is available with a new six-speed manual transmission.There are other refinements as well.

The Tundra is one of the smoothest, quietest, and most refined pickups we've driven.It's more agile than other full-size pickups, at least partly because it's slightly smaller.The Tundra feels quick and responsive, lighter on its feet and more refined than the domestic trucks.Buyer's appreciate that it's built to Toyota's high standards of quality, durability and reliability.

However, the Tundra isn't quite as full-sized as the new Nissan Titan nor is it as big as the domestic pickups, namely the Ford F-150, Dodge Ram, Chevrolet Silverado, and GMC Sierra.Critics call it a 7/8ths truck.It isn't quite as good at being a truck as the other trucks when hauling or towing, but it's capable of hauling up to 2025 pounds or towing up to 7100, if equipped to do so.Not everyone needs the ultimate in truck capability, though.For them, the Tundra offers plenty of capability to perform the work they ask of it, and its refinement and handling makes it a good alternative to a car.

Like the domestic trucks, Tundra is available with regular cab, extended cab, and crew cab (Double Cab) bodies.The Double Cab is more than three inches taller, and is built on a longer chassis than the other Tundra models; so it comes a little closer to being a true full-size pickup.It features a deep, six-foot bed and an adult-friendly back seat.

In addition to more horsepower, some Tundra models have acquired more standard equipment for 2005, including a tire-pressure monitoring system.
