New Toyota Tundra on Manhattan

If a good, old American Jeep, as the viceroy of all terrain, deserves to be erected a monument, Japanese Toyota should receive at least a special recognition. Toyota is the first to sample the field features and exquisite comfort, which is still successful today. But he’s not alone in that. Today there are some new times, so every car maker has at least one pickup in its offer, and they all try to take power from the throne powerful Toyota. However, it does not go hand in hand for the competition. Sequoia is still the best-selling SUV, but the new Tundra is selling much better than the old model. Where lies the secret of Toyota’s success? The answer is quite simple: they offered what customers wanted before the competition. This time, Tundra get new engine.

Sound insulation is top-notch, the final processing is such that it can embarrass Mercedes and Audi. An average fuel consumption of 6.2 liters for a vehicle with an automatic transmission of over 1.5 tonnes is an excellent result. However, customers will be even more attracted to excellent active safety, rich equipment and a very good price. This time I tested the version with only the front drive and the automatic CVT gearbox. Tundra is a model that customers are increasingly looking for. Today nobody buys a pickup to use the benefits of the drive on all wheels every day. Toyota again has a winning combination: Pickup with a robust trap, but only with front-wheel drive (as on the test). Is that a full hit? I’d say it was. The only serious competition for him is the new RAV4.

Toyota has “played” very wisely over the last ten years. The compact class, which does not have enough money, left it to others, and the customers thrilled the car for which they did not even know they wanted it so much – Tundra. The Japanese manufacturer has created a model that all drivers over forty years want: Toyota Tundra has never had the ambition to acquire those customers who are fooling themselves about having to use their 4 × 4 drive, but “drove out” the limousine drivers and explained to them why It’s good to have a little more chassis, but also why the seat position in the crossover is better for you when you have more than 180 cm and 100 kg. Limousines, as they used to be – although today they are faster, more economical and quieter, there are still limousines. This means that they are low, and when you have 100 pounds or more, leaving the vehicle is not as comfortable as when you were twenty years younger and in top form.
