2009 Tundra Overview

The current generation Toyota Tundra is Toyota's third version of a full-size pickup.The first iteration, called T100 and more the size of a Dodge Dakota, taught them you have to have a V8.The second generation and first carrying the Tundra badge, showed them that 15/16 doesn't equal full-size.The current generation, launched as a 2007 model, shows they learned their lessons.

The 2009 Toyota Tundra carries forward relatively unchanged.New for 2009: A bench seat is available on SR5 trim at no charge, four-door cabs receive a chrome front bumper and grille, the regular cab Cold kit adds wiper deicing, the Power memory Package is optional rather than standard on Limited, and in non-California emissions regions 5.7-powered four-wheel drives will be flex-fuel capable of running on E85.

Two new TRD packages are available for 2009: Rock Warrior and Sport Edition.Toyota Racing Development also offers supercharger systems that deliver near 500 hp from the 5.7.

Tundra trim levels range from the basic Tundra Grade to Limited models with leather upholstery.Even the base models are loaded with useful features, including tons of interior storage options, an easy-lift assisted tailgate and four-wheel disc brakes.The high-end Limited models offer features such as GPS-linked navigation with a backup camera and a state-of-the-art rear-seat entertainment with a nine-inch LCD screen.Tundra covers nearly all the half-ton pickup bases.

The high-torque, 381-hp 5.7-liter V8 and its standard six-speed automatic transmission make one of the strongest, most responsive powertrains in the class.It's an excellent choice for towing trailers.A 4.0-liter V6 engine is the most economical, with enough power for basic work-truck duty.There's also an intermediate 4.7-liter V8.

Safety equipment is comprehensive, including front side-impact airbags, curtain-type head protection airbags, advanced anti-lock brakes (ABS) with electronic brake force distribution (EBD) and brake assist, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and traction control.

Towing capacity reaches 10,800 pounds; a fully loaded CrewMax 4x4 is rated at about 8800 pounds.We've found the Tundra a stable, comfortable truck for towing a 20-foot enclosed car trailer.Maximum payload ratings range from 1350 pounds to 1990 pounds.An available deck rail system in the bed anchors moveable tie-down cleats rated at 220 pounds each.

The Tundra comes in three body styles: two-door Regular Cab; Double Cab with conventional front-hinged, secondary rear side doors; and four-door CrewMax.Tundra is available with three bed lengths and three different wheelbases.Rear-wheel drive is standard, four-wheel drive optional, with seating for two, three, five or six in three trim levels.In all, the 2009 Tundra is available in 45 different build configurations.That's fewer than a Ford F-150 or Chevy Silverado, believe it or not.

Moreover, those veteran pickups offer more options than Tundra, including things like different rear-end ratios and towing aids that allow a buyer to more specifically tailor a pickup to personal needs.And Dodge, Chevy and Ford have a database of valuable customer feedback that goes back decades beyond Toyota's.

It's difficult to convince a longtime pickup owner to switch brands, and each make has relative strengths and weaknesses.But there's no arguing the Tundra is a viable alternative to any half-ton pickup.Shoppers without a particular …
