Built to raise expectations 

When the Tundra was first introduced, it was the market leader with its towing capacity and fuel economy. Belong the hood, it was one of the first vehicles to achieve a Low Emission Vehicle emissions classification from the EPA. The engine had enough strength to haul a payload of nearly a ton and pull a maximum of 7,200 pounds.  

Clocking over a million miles 

There have been impressive ventures in Toyota Tundra trucks from towing the space shuttle Endeavour in 2012 to driving over a million miles. The dependability of this truck is unmatchable. With no specific modifications, the Tundra CrewMax 4×4 towed 292,000 pounds of the Endeavour across a bridge spanning the 405. When kept in pristine condition, the Toyota Tundra can last a long time. A man would average 125,000 miles per year in his 2007 Toyota Tundra. By 2016, he reached a million miles without a problem.
