Based on its FTX concept, Toyota Engineering produces the 2007 Toyota Tundra which shows a combination of styling, brute power and bold design. The 2007 Toyota Tundra made its recent Texas debut in Austin. What was clear is that the company kept its FTX design concept. So far, the company officials are proud of their latest output. They are recognizing that all the cars they built before were just rehearsals for this one. More importantly, they want true truck buyers to consider the 2007 Tundra because it has everything that they want in a truck. They are counting on its assets such as looks, size, power, capability, reliability and quality.
Jim Press who is Toyota Motor Sales president and chief operating officer is not hiding the news. He wants truck buyers to take a look at the new Tundra. The 2007 Tundra fits the image that true truckers want. "This is the most exciting and important product in our history," he said in Austin, Texas. He is the guy who said that the previous trucks were just warm-ups for this one. He is providing us with more secrets now. He reported that the Tundra team spent seven years working on the truck, concentrating on a key part of the segment it labels "true truckers." For the people who use trucks mostly for work and other activities, he has this to say, "You will not be sorry." He also targets the female drivers who want the power and reliability of Toyota. This truck is American as apple pie. To meet the needs of the American consumers, styling and engineering took precaution to have the latest details done in the USA. Built exclusively in the US, the Tundra will soon be coming out of the San Antonio and Princeton assembly lines.
What are the size and models like?
Toyota Motor company will produce the B Cab first. It is an extended cab with bonus room in the back but without the doors. Then, you will have the four-door C Cab which is an Access Cab replacement that is closer in size to Toyota's current crew cab, the Double Cab. With this truck, Toyota will offer a larger Double Cab with four doors and great roominess. Also, the three grades of Base, SR5 and Limited will be available.
The 2007 truck comes equipped with a new 5.7-litter i-Force V-8 engine that Toyota reports allows a towing capacity in excess of 10,000 pounds. Jim Press said that it is one of the largest engine the company has ever built. It has a six-speed automatic which provides power and smoothness. With the 5.7 liter, the 2007 Tundra will be offered with a 4.0-liter V-6 engine and updated version of the current 4.7-liter V-8.
Rest assured that the new truck will give you more shoulder and hip room. The command and control center is designed to give the trucker a clear view of the instrument panel and convenient access to knobs and switches.
