2000 Toyota Tundra

Based on a drive over lava-strewn terrain and undulating highways, Toyota’s new Tundra has the size and power to compete with the Ford F-150, Dodge Ram, Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. It is the first full-sized pickup truck ever sold by an import-brand automaker.

The Toyota Tundra offers an optional double overhead-cam V8 engine that gives it more than enough power to compete with the big dogs. The Tundra accelerates quicker than base V8 versions of the Ford F-150, Dodge Ram, Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra — even when a trailer is attached. This new Toyota pickup can tow a 7,200-pound trailer or haul more than 2,000 pounds in its 8-foot bed. It offers excellent handling on the highway and over rough terrain. It sports a comfortable cab and delivers a quiet ride.

In a field of great full-sized, half-ton pickup trucks, the Toyota Tundra is among the best.
