Truck Reviews: 2009 Toyota Tundra

Truck Reviews: 2009 Toyota Tundra




Over the last 20 years or so Toyota has gained a good share of the U.S. Truck Market, and the 2009 Toyota Tundra 4 x 2 regular cab pickup truck should continue the trend. An extremely tough but versatile truck, the 2009 Toyota Tundra fits as well on a job site as it does in the family driveway. At a starting price of ,390, the 2009 Toyota Tundra gets excellent gas mileage for a truck this capable - 15 miles per gallon in the city and 19 miles per gallon on the highway.


On the exterior of the 2009 Toyota Tundra 4 x 2 regular cab are attractive features, but it is clear this is a durable truck capable of professional endeavors. The 18 inch steel wheels are offset by front and rear chrome steel bumpers, rail caps, and high solar-energy absorbing rear glass. The color keyed black grille, black door handles and black outside mirrors look quite fashionable for a pickup truck.
The performance package on the 2009 Toyota Tundra is better than most, and as good as any pickup truck around. Powered by a 4.0 Liter DOHC 24 valve, V-6 engine with variable valve timing, the 2009 Toyota Tundra has a 236 Horsepower output at 4,000 RPM's, and an electronically controlled transmission. A smooth ride is provided by front independent coil spring suspension with a stabilizer bar, and rear live axle multi-leaf suspension. A 4 wheel disc anti-lock brake system with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist make for good stopping power. The performance package on the 2009 Toyota Tundra is completed by rack and pinion hydraulic power steering, and the payload of the 2009 Toyota Tundra is 1590 pounds.
The interior of the 2009 Toyota Tundra if functional, yet quite comfortable and attractive. An 8 way adjustable fabric 40/20/40 split bench seat, a tilt steering wheel and driver and passenger automatic dual zone climate control should please all occupants. The audio system on the 2009 Toyota Tundra consists of an AM/FM stereo with CD player and 4 outstanding speakers, and instrumentation consists of a speedometer, tripometer and a digital clock.
The safety features on the 2009 Toyota Tundra is more than adequate, with driver and front passenger airbags, a child restraint system, a tire pressure monitor system and traction control.
For a purchase as either a work truck or a personal vehicle, the 2009 Toyota Tundra is a value, and easily one of the leaders in this class.
