Used Toyota Tundra Information
The Toyota Tundra entered the market in the 2000 model year as the first full-sized truck to be offered on the U.S. market by a Japanese manufacturer. It won North American Truck of the Year when first introduced and has been named Motor Trend Magazine's Truck of the Year in both 2000 and 2008. The Tundra enjoys a reputation for rugged durability and reliability.
The first-generation Tundra was to be named the T150, but a lawsuit by Ford over trademark infringement ensured that Toyota would not use the name. Considered small by American pickup truck standards, the Tundra nevertheless sold well, outstripping the former Toyota T100 it replaced by two to one in sales. Up to that point, the 2000 Toyota Tundra had the largest initial vehicle sales of any Toyota in history.
Used Toyota Tundras for sale from 2007 mark the second generation model, boasting many changes that appeal to truck buyers. The truck was upgraded in size to be more on par with its contemporaries from Detroit, body styling was updated to match the best-selling Tacoma midsize pickup truck, and towing and payload capacities increased. A new 5.7-liter V8 was introduced and immediately became the engine option of choice for many buyers. The former 4.7-liter V8 was kept as was the 4.0-liter V6 option.
Toyota also added several configuration options to the Tundra in order to attract both commercial buyers and consumers. Three bed lengths, three cab configurations, and two transmissions were offered. Now more competitive against the Ram, Ford, and General Motors offerings, the Toyota Tundra began to see sales increase until they reached production capacity.
In 2014, a new Toyota Tundra was introduced as the third-generation of the truck. Changes were mainly cosmetic with some interior updates and the dropping of a few unpopular configuration options.
On the used market, the Toyota Tundra is a popular pickup truck which, especially in its V8 engine options, retains value well.
