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 ).

The 2015 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is a new and more capable high-performance
off-road package meant to slot in above the wildly popular (and similarly
named) TRD Off-Road package.
It consists mainly of a rugged long-travel suspension that is expert at
gobbling up rocky trails with ridiculous ease. But don't let that fool you,
because this well-crafted suspension is anything but stiff. In fact, in
many circumstances the TRD Pro rivals the smoothest-riding Tundra 4x4 you
The TRD Pro doesn't possess the outrageous stance and menacing wide-body
presence of Ford's F-150 Raptor, but it approaches that level of
performance for thousands less.
Toyota's TRD Off-Road package has been an extremely popular option since it
was first offered in 1998 on the Tacoma 4x4 compact pickup. Full-size
Tundra versions enjoyed equal success when they arrived on the scene soon
Unlike the original, the TRD Pro package features a raised-stance
long-travel suspension that's built around massive remote-reservoir
Bilstein shock absorbers.
TRD stands for Toyota Racing Development, so it should be no surprise this
package is best suited to covering unpaved tracks at barely diminished
speeds. That said, the TRD Pro setup delivers an enormous amount of front
and rear axle articulation, and greatly enhanced front ground and approach
The only thing holding the TRD Pro Tundra back from being a true mountain
goat on slow and technical boulder-strewn Jeep trails is its lack of a
lockable rear differential. And, of course, it's a hulking full-size truck,
not a compact.

2014 Toyota Tundra TRD 4x4 Off Road - Fast Lane Daily
Fast Lane Daily's Tom Albrecht takes the 2014 Toyota Tundra TRD 4x4 Off
Road out on some rocky trails as he reviews this behemoth of a truck. With
a 5.7 L V8 engine under the hood and some solid off road tires and
suspension, the Toyota Tundra is definitely a truck that stands strong
among tough competition from Ford and GM.
