With the 2007 Tundra, Toyota has decided to get serious about the light-duty truck market. Gone is what some derisively called a “7/8s” pickup. In its place is an honest-to-goodness, full-size, half-ton pickup that raises the competitive bar.
Other than some basic, no more than skin-deep styling cues that keep an appropriate modicum of faith with what has gone before, everything about the 2007 Toyota Tundra is new. From mundane features like four-wheel disc brakes to a cost-is-no-object, all-new 381-horsepower V8, from a re-configured assembly line in Indiana to the costly construction of a plant in Texas, Toyota has pulled out all the stops. That thinking extends to the number of variations offered.
The 2007 Toyota Tundra comes in three body styles: a two-door Regular cab; a Double Cab with front-hinged, secondary rear side doors; and a four-door CrewMax. It’s available in three bed lengths and three different wheelbases. There are three engine choices, a V6 and two V8s, and a choice of five-speed and six-speed automatics. Rear-wheel drive is standard, four-wheel drive optional. Three trim levels, DX, SR5 and Limited, offer seating for two, three, five or six. In all, Toyota says the ’07 Tundra has 31 different build configurations.
SR5 trim is available in all three cab configurations. The SR5 fabric front bench gets better quality upholstery and eight-way driver and four-way passenger adjustments, both manual. Other driver-assist and creature-comfort upgrades include power windows, central locking and outside mirrors; cruise control; keyless remote; two more speakers, for a total of six; a third power point; carpeted floor mats; and rear seat heater duct. Exterior trim is upgraded with chrome bumpers and a chrome grille. The V8 towing package is standard on the Long Bed. The multi-function mirrors come standard with the 5.7-liter V8.
