The 2008 Toyota Tundra was named Motor’s Trend Truck of the year winning in front if cars like Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado or Dodge RAM. After days of testing, Motor Trend comes to a conclusion: "The new Toyota Tundra is now ready to take on any American-made pickup truck — on all levels."
According to the magazine, the new Tundra is one of the biggest, strongest, and most capable vehicles in the segment. The Tundra represents one of the most highly anticipated new vehicle launches in many years — car or truck.
The new Tundra offers three different powertrains (one V-6 and two V-8s), with the 5.7-liter V-8 a high-tech wonder and torque monster — and is among among the most powerful engines in any half-ton configuration. Toyota’s platform has the entire segment covered with three different bed sizes, three separate wheelbases covering five different cab and bed configurations, combined with three different trim packages (Tundra Grade, SR5, and Limited) in 4x4 and 4x2 drivetrains — 44 different truck flavors to interested buyers, from work truck to luxury touring.
