The Toyota 2016 Tundra comes with the 4.6-liter i-Force V8 that doles out 310 horsepower and 327 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 3,400 rpm. The most popular Tundra engine is the available 5.7-liter i-Force V8. It's a remarkably refined workhorse that generates 381 horsepower and 401 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 3,600 rpm.
The foundation for Tundra's strength and up to 10,500-pound towing capacity is its TripleTech frame. "Triple" refers to the wide, full-boxed rails for the front portion, a reinforced C-channel under the cab and an open C-channel beneath the bed for strength, ride quality and durability.
On Tundra 2WD models, the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) system integrates traction control (TRAC) that enhances grip on or off-road.
Tundra 4x4 models use the on-demand, electronically controlled 4WDemand part-time 4WD system featuring a six-pinion planetary reduction gear set to provide 4x2, 4x4 Hi and 4x4 Lo ranges.
