The Toyota Tundra has been available in the States since 1999. Part of the ultra-reliable Toyota family, the Tundra has remained a top choice for those looking for a long-lasting, “bulletproof” truck. The Tundra has technically only had two generations, with the long-running second generation getting multiple updates and refreshes throughout the years. We’ll be looking at the second generation to see some of the major changes they went through and help you decide which model to go with.
The Gen 2 Tundra was redesigned from the ground up and was available in up to 44 different bed/cab/wheelbase/transmission configurations by 2008. It also had five different engine options to choose from: a 236 horsepower 4.0L VVT-i V6 (2007-2010), a 270-horsepower 4.0L dual-VVT-i V6 (2010-2013), a 276-horsepower 4.7L V8 (2007-2009), a 310-horsepower 4.6L V8 (2010-current), and a 381-horsepower 5.7L V8. The 2008 Tundra also received the Ivan Ironman Stewart Signature Series, giving it a high-performance TRD supercharger.
The 2014 Tundra got a completely new, rugged look. The grille was made bigger, the front fenders reshaped, the hood raised, the tailgate and taillights redesigned. The interior was also given a complete redesign. There are three different engines available on the Gen 2.5 Tundra: a 276-horsepower 4.0L V6, a 310-horsepower 4.6L V8, and a 381-horsepower 5.7L V8. Starting in 2015, the Tundra received the TRD Pro variant, giving it more ground clearance, Bilstein shocks and dampers, a 6mm aluminum skid plate, and a cat-back exhaust, among other features.
