New 2021 Toyota Tundra: The Roomy Off-Roader

The Toyota Tundra is simply massive, whichever angle from which one looks at it. Design lines on the sides are plain when compared to the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F150, and Dodge Ram 1500. However, the ideal buyer for this vehicle would be one who wants a robust, no fuss SUV with loads of space, which can also be used for lugging trailers.

What Trims are Available?

Here is the list of different trim levels available for the 2021 Toyota Tundra:

  • SR
  • SR5
  • Limited
  • Platinum
  • 1794 Edition
  • TRD Pro

 

Apart from the above, two new packages are now available on certain trims, namely Nightshade and Trail. A bold and dominant style can be seen on each of the trims.

Exterior Appearance:

Large is the only word that comes to mind while looking at the outside of the pickup. Lines of design are straight, with minimal curves all around. The grille at the front looks different, having been divided into two parts. 12 different exterior color options are available for this vehicle. In addition to this, one can also select from 5 color options on the inside.

How Powerful is it?

The vehicle is an excellent load hauler and is highly capable when off the trodden path. Power is available in the form of a 5.7 liter, 381 hp V8, capable of towing a massive 10,200 lbs. This engine has been mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. However, this is not a pickup to be considered by a buyer who is looking for a fuel efficient option. Otherwise, anyone looking for pure thrust will enjoy loads of it.

While RWD (Rear Wheel Drive) is available as a part of standard equipment, 4 Wheel Drive is an option. The vehicle is immensely capable off-roader, especially the TRD Pro.

Interior Appearance:

The amount of room available in its Crew Max style is akin to that in an apartment. From 2020, all variants get a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with all the latest apps. Overall, the interior is functional. Most customers would love to use the massive knobs for temperature control.

Seating in the back seat is massive, which implies that most children would be able to fit here easily. Some of the other interior features worth mentioning include:

  • Six speaker audio system, which can be upgraded using a package on the SR5 to make it either seven or nine.
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
  • Inbuilt navigation
  • Multifunctional steering wheel
  • 3 USB ports
  • Satellite Radio
  • WiFi hotspot
  • Ventilated and heated seats (Platinum and 1794 Edition)
  • Moonroof (Platinum and 1794 Edition)

 

While some variants of the 2021 Toyota Tundra can set 5 adults, others can seat 6.

Safety Features:

There is no doubt that the Tundra is built like a tank. The good thing here is that Toyota Safety Sense, the safety program from the Japanese manufacturer, has been made standard on all variants of the Tundra.

  • Forward Collision Mitigation
  • Automatic high beams
  • Pedestrian Detection System
  • Lane departure warning
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Blind Spot Monitoring (1794 Edition and Platinum)

 

Apart from these, the vehicle also comes with an Electronic trailer brake controller feature, which is most helpful.
