How Capable is the 2017 Tundra?

When you buy a full-size half-ton pickup truck, you don’t do it just because it looks good. You want a truck that is highly capable so you can use it for everything you need. The 2017 Tundra was built to do it all, from heavy-duty jobs to morning commutes.

Power and Performance

The Toyota Tundra has two engines available, and both pack a powerful punch. The 4.6-liter V8 produces 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque, while the 5.7-liter V8 ups the game with 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. The truck has ample features that allow it to handle all of this power. The massive ring gear lets it easily handle all of the truck’s torque, while the Active Traction Control makes it easy to drive in all conditions.

Towing with Your Tundra

Driving around is one thing, but how does the Tundra handle towing? All of the trim levels can tow at least 10,000 pounds, and the vehicles come with features to help with loads of all sizes. Trailer Sway Control keeps your trailer steady, and the available Tow/Haul mode makes the truck hold onto the lower gears for a longer period. That will prevent the transmission from searching for the right gear while crawling up or down a hill. These are just two of the numerous towing features you will get with a Tundra.

Avoid Wasting Time at the Pump

A truck can’t be capable if it is always at the gas pump. You need a truck that can work day after day, and a 2017 Tundra with the help of a 38-gallon gas tank, you can do a lot more work with the Tundra. That means you can go on long hauls without stopping for gas every few hours.

Staying Safe on the Road

A truck is only capable when it is safe. You need to stay safe on the road so you can continue to haul items and hit the job site. The truck has tons of safety features, including a Blind Spot Monitor and the Star Safety System. These features make it much easier to stay on the road.
