2013 Toyota Tundra takes on Ford, Chevy & the Ike Gauntlet Mashup Towing Test ( Episode 1 )
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2013 Toyota Tundra Pickup is built to tow.
But is it better than the Ford F-150 and the brand new Chevy Silverado? We
decided to find out by putting all three pickups up against each other in a
Mega Mashup by having them tow the old Lincoln Continental Mark V Diamond
in the Rough up one of the steepest and highest American Highways. From
Dillion, Colorado to the Eisenhower Tunnel U.S. I-70 climbs 8 miles to a
maximum elevation of 11,158 feet or 3,401 meters. That's enough elevation
and grade to test the most powerful of pickups. Is the Toyota Tundra up to
the task of towing a over 7,000 pounds up to the top of the tunnel?
In fact according to Toyota this pickup can tow up to 9,000 pounds. That's
enough weight to need a commercial truckers license in most states. In this
first TFLtruck Ike Gauntlet video review we test the truck up the Ike
Gauntlet see how fast it will tow over 7,000 pounds of old American Luxury
car 8 miles up a 7 percent grade to the Eisenhower tunnel with the help of
our friend Kent from ( http://www.MrTruck.com ).

2012 Toyota TUNDRA
The Toyota Tundra is a full-size pickup truck introduced by Toyota in the
1999 for the 2000 model year. It was widely considered to be the first
full-size import-brand truck built with an American look and feel and a
refined V8 engine. The Tundra was eventually nominated for the North
American Truck of the Year award and was Motor Trend magazine's Truck of
the Year in 2000 and 2008. Currently the Tundra is assembled in San
Antonio, Texas where production was consolidated in 2008.
The first generation Tundra had many similarities with the older Toyota
T100 and the compact Toyota Tacoma. The biggest of those similarities was
the shared use of a 3.4-liter V6 engine which was the top of the line
engine in both the Tacoma and T100. The V6 engine would serve as the base
engine for the Tundra, while a second powerplant, a first for a Toyota
truck, a V8 engine sized at 4.7-liters was added to the lineup.

2012 Toyota Sequoia Test Drive & SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/toyota/sequoia/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Toyota
Sequoia is one of those vehicles that offers a ton of utilitarian value.
The Sequoia can seat up to 8 passengers, has tons of cargo room, and can
tow 6900 lbs. There are 3 models of Sequoia for purchase: the base SR5
costs $40,930, the Limited costs $51,040, and the Platinum costs $58,580.
The 2012 Toyota Sequoia comes in either 2WD or 4WD.
There are 2 different engines offered on the Sequoia for the 2012 model
year. Them smaller engine can be found on the lower model SUVs. This 4.6
liter V-8 engine makes 310 horsepower and 327 lb-ft. of
torque. The larger engine is a 5.7 liter V-8 motor that makes 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft. of
torque. Both engine comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Fuel
economy is 14 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway for the smaller 4.6
liter engine and 13 MPG in the city and 18 MPG on the highway for the
larger 5.7 liter engine.
On the outside there are a ton of standard features. The bumpers are color
matched to the rest of the body. The Sequoia gets standard fog lamps and a
chrome grille surround. The stock 18-inch alloy wheels look great but you
can upgrade to a set of 20-inch alloy sport wheels which really stand out.
The rear liftgate automatically opens and closes. Also the Sequoia comes
standard with a roof rack, running boards, and mud guards.
On the inside the Sequoia base model gets cloth seating but the Premium
models get leather seats that are power adjustable. The standard radio
comes with a CD player, Bluetooth, iPod connection, and Sirius XM Satellite
Radio. You can upgrade to a great 12-speaker JBL Synthesis stereo system.
There is also a touch-screen navigation unit as an option. As stated
earlier the 2012 Toyota Sequoia can seat up to 8 passengers. But there is
an option which swaps out the middle row seating with 2 oversized Captains
Chairs. The Sequoia also comes with power everything as a standard feature.

New 2012 Toyota Tacoma
Judging by the attention it's been getting lately, the refreshed 2012
Toyota Tacoma that's been revealed by the automaker will see its market
success at the top of the compact pickup market secured in full for coming
To update the looks, the new facelifted model sports a new hood, grille,
headlights and front bumper among other minor details that should be enough
to attract customers to this workhorse.
Changes have also been made to the interior, where the Enture system that
made its debut on the Prius V has been introduced. It allows for voice,
touch screen and steering wheel mounted controls of the audio and
infotainment systems. In similar fashion to Ford's SYNC systems, it
provides the latest info on the weather, sports, stocks and even the price
of a tank of fuel. The revised instrument panel and controls offer a more
high-end feel and overall better quality.
Under the bonnet, the 2.7-liter four-cylinder and 4.0-liter V6 engines
carry over, as does the TRD Supercharger
kit that Boosts horsepower from 236 to 334
for the V6.
For both Access and Double Cab models, the available option combinations
are built on five core packages. The SR5 brings color-keyed overfenders and
front bumper, chrome grille surround and chrome rear bumper, intermittent
wipers and upgraded interior features and trim, including a leather-wrapped
steering wheel and automatic transmission shift lever.
Meanwhile, TRD Sport gets suspension tuning and lower-profile 265/65 R17
tires on 17-inch alloy wheels. This package also gives Tacoma a sporty look
with fog lamps, hood scoop, TRD graphics and color-keyed rear bumper,
mirrors, grille surround and door handles.
TRD Big Brake systems provide better stopping power for sustained heavy use
while also giving better pedal feel. No pricing information has been
released yet, but we can expect little to be changed for this mild facelift
