2017 MODEL

Detailed Review

Toyota Racing Development leaves no stone unturned to make this Tundra a beast that it is. But whilst making it a beast they forgot to add some rather elem`` entary features that people expect in a $60,000 automobile.


With a V8 endowed engine which churns out 401 lb-ft of torque using the 381 horses available at its disposal, the bellow of the Tundra TRD Pro proclaims that it has arrived and that too in style. All class-leading off-roaders on its trail, it’ll be interesting to see what the import brings to the table.

2017 Toyota Tundra TRD Double Cab Features

The Tundra is offered in various trims but only one is capable of being called a fully-fledged off-roader. Mapping the tracks and passages not taken often the TRD Pro makes sure that none of the things on the way bothers you.It offers an unadulterated off-roading experience, to say the least.

Though Tundra Double Cab comes with good standard options, you can always upgrade your trucks with various options that the Toyota provides you with.

2017 Toyota Tundra TRD Double Cab Engine

“Visually, the TRD Pro wants you to know that it is no ordinary Tundra. Matte black trim and a massive “TOYOTA” logo lend to an imposing front end, which also sports standard fog lights and a (nonfunctional) hood scoop. The bedside is stamped with a TRD Logo, and all other badging is finished in black.” - Digital Trends

Second, only to the Raptor and the Nissan Titan, the Toyota sits comfortably in the middle of the table. With 381hp and 401 lb-ft of torque available at your command, this off-roader is more than capable of handling what you throw at it.

With the Raptor and Nissan taking the lead it can no longer be said that the imports aren’t as good as their American counterparts. The 6 speed electronically controlled automatic transmission seems antiquated when compared to the Ford(10 speed) and Ram (8 speed).

Acceleration

With 6.6s on the clock, the Toyota Tundra is third when compared to others and this stat is very impressive when the fact that these are not race-runners but big luggers.

The F 150 Raptor outshines everything and unapologetically obliterates its competition with ease. The Nissan comes in at second place and the Tundra third.

Braking

With braking distances of most of the offroading iterations not available we assume that the braking of the Tundra would be on par with the others.

2017 Toyota Tundra TRD Double Cab Interior

With the tech and interior upgrade of the Ford F-150, it is hard to beat the American on point amenities. The Toyota features TRD stitching and lush interiors but the lack of keyless entry and automatic climate control might not sit well with, many.

Second, only to the Raptor in interior spacing, the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Double Cab takes comfort very seriously. With ample leg room to house adults in the rear, the Tundra is an accommodating ride through and through.

Towing Capacity

Leaning towards the bottom half of the comparison table the Toyota manages to lug only a measly 9200lbs that is only better than the Ford Raptor.

2017 Toyota Tundra TRD Double Cab Exterior

“The Ford F-150, for example, offers a weight-saving aluminum body and an optional turbocharged V6 engine that delivers substantial towing and hauling capability with much better fuel economy. Also on that must-consider list should be the Ram 1500 with its available fuel-efficient EcoDiesel powertrain and smooth-riding coil spring rear suspension. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and new Nissan Titan (and heavier-duty Nissan Titan XD) are worth a look, too.” - Edmunds

Not class leading in any of the Dimension parameters on the exterior the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Double Cab does not fare well when it comes to size. The 3 piece replaceable bumper panels is a unique feature that makes the replacing the bumper far less expensive than it used to be.

The tamed looks of the import do not help the fact that it goes against fierce machines like the Raptor and the Ram which are far more menacing. The second highest ground clearance tied with its Japanese brethren surely makes it a good off-roading choice for both weekend warriors and serious dirt champs.

2017 Toyota Tundra TRD Double Cab Safety

The Toyota Tundra comes with a few safety features that would put the prospective buyers in quite a dilemma as for a 60,000 truck that comes sans driver assist.

  • Driver and front passenger advanced airbags

  • Rear roll-sensing side curtain airbags
  • Trailer-Sway Control
  • 3-point safety belts for all seating positions
  • Multi-information display
  • LATCH child-safety system

2017 Toyota Tundra TRD Double Cab Competition

Ford F-150 Raptor Supercrew

The class leader dominates the table where it matters and isn’t shy to show off its strengths where it matters. With the longest wheelbase and class-leading interiors, the Supercrew version of the beloved Raptor is one tough truck to beat. Add the Ford Sync 3 tech and it is virtually unbeatable.

Nissan Titan Pro 4X Crew Cab

The 2017 Nissan Titan Crew Cab comes with 5.6 liter V8 that produces a robust 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque and accelerates the truck to 60 seconds in 6 seconds. Thus it has an upper hand on the Tundra Crew Max with the 4.6 liter V8. However, when we look at other aspects such as the braking, cargo and towing capacity, for which these trucks are specially used for The Tundra has the upper hand.

RAM 1500 Rebel Crew Cab

The 2017 RAM 2500 Tradesman has a very powerful 3.6 liter V8 engine, its performance is less due to its heavy weight. This is where the Double Cab beats the 1500 Tradesman. However, its towing and cargo capacity is higher than the Double Cab.

Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71 LTZ

The 2017 Chevy Silverado has a powerful 5.3-liter V8 engine, but despite its heavy weight, it gives good performance when compared to the Double Cab. In fact, it also has a better towing and cargo capacity.

2017 Toyota Tundra TRD Double Cab Final Verdict

The 2017 Toyota Tundra Double Cab precisely has all the qualities of a fair truck. It has good cargo and towing capacity with a good braking system. Although it’s poor fuel economy and humongous size be considered as drawbacks that hold it back. However, the Toyota Trust-worthiness that it has built up during the past generations becomes one of the noticeable plus points in the consumer market.
