When I first came across this truck, my first thought was "Wow. What a behemoth!" As I strolled through the lot looking at the other models, the image of that black Tundra was still stuck in my mind. I decided to check out this full-size pickup a little more throroughly. This model was a 4.0 liter V6, regular cab pickup. Other styles include double and crew cab, with V8 and 4.6 liter all the up to 5.7 liter engines. The exterior is, well, industrial in scale. The front grille is bigger than any I've seen on competing models, and the side panels are quite large as well. There's nothing really "blocky" about the body, as the fender wells are flared to give it a more streamlined look. With two passenger doors on to the interior, there's definitely a lot of plastic in the Tundra, which is not that abnormal. The automatic shifter is seemingly over-large, but not so much that it's in the way. There are a lot of small storage spaces throughout the interior, which is handy. On the center arm rest are the prerequisite dual cup holders and driver/passenger cubby holes with spring-loaded covers. The center console has a good array of standard features: cd player, fm/am tuner, usb/aux ports for your mp3 player. I do have to say the knobs for the cooling and heating system are very prominent. No mistaking which is which. After a short test drive, I have to say I enjoyed the handling even without a payload. There were some jolts from the road, but since this is a work truck it will smooth out with some added weight. As for power, this V6 seems to have quite a bit, though the upgraded V8 is tempting with only a small mpg loss. The dealer informed me that 4-wheel drive is available on all models, so that is also a plus.
