By: Funk's Toyota   |   17 Dec 2018

If you live your life in the thick of the action and are searching for a vehicle that can keep up, we’ve got good news for you, because the ground breaking Toyota Tundra just got a whole lot better. Here we will look at a few of the many highlights of what some are calling the early favourite for 2019 Truck of the Year honours.

  1. Pure power

The 2019 Tundra comes backed by a 5.7L i-FORCE V8 Engine that will take your breath away. Not only does it generate an epic 381 horsepower and 401 lb/ft. of torque, but this beast of a unit features a range of highly advanced technologies, including Dual Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence (VVT-i) and sequential multi-port electronic fuel injection. Better yet, moving large and heavy items is easy as you get a towing capacity of up to 4,535 kg!

  1. High tech

This brute of a vehicle is far more than just one tough ride, as it also has the latest high tech features woven into every pore. Bluetooth functionality is in full-effect, a Backup Camera comes standard, and you’ll find USB and auxiliary inputs in all the right places. Controlling those many features and functions is also easy thanks to a touchscreen Audio System and steering wheel mounted controls.

  1. Built tough

Every inch of the new Tundra has been designed to thrive in the thick of the action. For example, its heavy duty suspension includes a double wishbone system with gas shocks, coil springs, and a stabilizer bar up front to go with multi-leaf springs and bias-mounted gas shocks in the rear. Furthermore, this burly ride is equipped with 13.9” front brake rotors and 4-piston calipers, while all 5.7L Tundra models come with trailer brake controller capabilities.

  1. Safe as a vault

You won’t find many vehicles safer than the 2019 Toyota Tundra. A suite of 8 strategically positioned airbags come standard, as does the Toyota Star Safety System, which includes everything from Brake Assist, Traction Control, and Smart Stop Technology through to Electronic Brake Force Distribution. The Toyota Safety Sense P is also on board, with features such as Automatic High Beams, Lane Departure Alert, and a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection.

  1. User-friendly

Loading and unloading your vehicle has never been simpler thanks to the Tundra’s Easy Lower and Lift Tailgate. Not only does it let you open and close your tailgate with as little as two fingers, but with a tonneau cover or shell attached securing your load is a piece of cake. Want more? You got it, because the 1794 Edition and CrewMax Platinum model both come with a power tailgate lock.
