As with the T100 before it, the Toyota Tundra concedes size and power to the five other full-size truck brands, forfeiting brutish measurements for a less tangible advantage in overall refinement. For 2005, Toyota has addressed the power deficit with new V-6 and V-8 engines. The V-6 displacement grew from 3.4 to 4.0 liters, an increase that nets an additional 55 horsepower and 62 lb-ft of torque, for totals of 245 and 282, respectively. The 4.7-liter V-8 gained variable valve timing, boosting horsepower from 240 to 282 and increasing torque by a modest 10 lb-ft, for a total of 325. A six-speed manual transmission replaces the five-speed manual in V-6 Tundras. This well-mannered pickup family is offered in regular-cab, Access Cab (extended), and Double Cab (crew) body configurations, with the range earning two 2005 IntelliChoice Best Overall Value awards.
