2009 Toyota Tundra

General

New Toyota full sized pickup has been released and it looks like it is a really nice truck. The 2009 Toyota Tundra is smaller than Ford, Dodge, and General Motors trucks. Changes comparing the previous models 2009 just includes some cosmetic outside and inside such as better antilock brakes or a flared-fender cargo bed. Under the The Toyota Tundra hood you can find a V6 engine. It is available with automatic or manual transmission. The V-8 engines are made with automatic transmission only.Tundra, the new Toyota truck featured imposing size and styling to erase any remindings about the 1st-generation Truck, which was referred to by many specialist as slightly fallacious truck. The Toyota Tundra 2009 comes optional with 2wheel or 4wheel drive. Both are available with rear-wheel drive or with 4WD that must be disengaged on dry pavement but includes low-range gearing.The Tundra looks compact and well-balanced and actually has a slightly smaller footprint than its American counterparts.

Interior

The Tundra’s interior is created to force the working people’s needs. All of the steering wheel is easy to grip, even in work gloves, and the gauges are big and simply to read. There are plenty of storage space plenty of nideouts.My favorite is center console that can hold a laptop and hanging files. Even the Regular Cab has enough space to accommodate five adult person. The Tundra Limitedversion features some of the essence of luxury,the seats are wide, supportive and comfortable and the ride is really quiet with just a whisper of a wind. There are available JBL sound system, which is a standard in Limited versions. You will find also a DVD and navigation system combined with 440 watts and 12 speakers.
