Whether you’re a contractor who needs a large truck bed or you’re someone who just needs a stand up truck for daily demands, the 2015 Toyota Tundra is a smart choice for a full-size pickup. It’s also one of the few serious off-road capable trucks on the market. Here are a few reasons to choose the Tundra.
Top Off-Road Performance: The 2015 Tundra stands as a seriously capable truck. This being said, no matter what trim you choose, it will handle whatever is thrown at it. If you want the most rugged trim in terms of capabilities off road, the Tundra’s TRD-Pro trim is the ultimate choice. It features everything from skid plates and off-road tires, to Bilstein shocks and a raised suspension.
The TRD Pro, along with the Limited, Platinum, and 1794 trims, house a 5.7-liter V8 engine paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. Whether it’s equipped with 2WD or 4WD is up to you. A tow package comes standard on Tundra’s with the 5.7-liter V8, and when properly equipped can tow between 9,800 and 10,500 pounds.
If the 5.7-liter provides more power and towing capacity than necessary for you, there is also a 4.6-liter V8 under the hood of SR and SR5 models. Just like the 5.7, the 4.6 is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission with the choice of 2WD or 4WD. When properly equipped maximum towing capacity for this powertrain is between 6,400 and 6,800 pounds.
Livable Interior: The 2015 Tundra boasts an interior that is so functional you could potentially live in it. Seats are large and comfortable, legroom is abundant, and all equipment is user-friendly. All models equipped with Toyota’s Entune touchscreen interface and Bluetooth connectivity. Up for grabs is a smartphone services system that boasts real-time traffic, Bing search engine, Pandora streaming radio, and even sports and stock information.
Safety in Gear and Scores: On road or off, safety is important for wherever life takes you. The 2015 Tundra provides excellent safety equipment and crash test scores that prove its dependability in real life situations. All models are equipped with antilock brakes, stability and traction control, trailer sway control, front knee airbags, front side-impact airbags, and side curtain airbags, plus a rearview camera. Depending on trim level, the Tundra has the option of a few extra safety features, such as parking sensors and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts.
The Tundra’s durability was definitely proven based on its scores after going through vigorous crash testing. It earned top scores in areas, such as side-impact and roof-strength protection, and seat and head restraint design for whiplash protection in rear impacts.
