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

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 ).
