(TORONTO) – The 2011 Tundra 4x4 and 4x2 models are rolling into Toyota Dealers, bringing a capable and versatile full-size pick-up truck to Canadians featuring the power, performance and value that makes it the perfect partner for work and play.
 
“The Tundra is the toughest, most versatile, and most value-laden full-size pick-up truck in the Toyota Truck line-up – the product of more than 70 years of experience building trucks for use in some of the most diverse and challenging environments around the world,” noted Warren Orton, Director at Toyota Canada Inc. “The Tundra captures what Canadians are looking in a Toyota Truck, and brings it into the 21st century with a blend of power, efficiency, capability and comfort that makes it a stand-out model in the full-size pick-up segment.”

  • 4x2 models – Two bodystyles include Regular and Double Cab
  • 4x4 models – Three bodystyles include Regular, Double Cab and CrewMax
Power
Toyota Tundra 4x2 and Tundra 4x4 models are available in two engine sizes:
  • A capable yet efficient 4.6L i-FORCE V8 delivers 310 horsepower and 327 lb-ft of torque. This engine is rated at a combined fuel efficiency of 12.2L/100KM in 4x2 and 14.6L/100KM in 4X4, 12.8L/100KM in 4x4 Double Cab SR5.
  • A robust and powerful 5.7L iFORCE V8 generates 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. This engine is rated at a combined fuel efficiency of 13.3L/100KM in 4x2 and 14.6L/100KM in 4x4.
  • Features on both engines: 32 valves; dual-overhead cam; Dual Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence; Acoustic Control Induction System, Sequential Multiport Electronic Fuel Injection; Tier 2 Bin 5 emissions rating; crank hold electronic starter control; and heavy duty starter, battery, alternator and heater.
All Tundra engines are mated to a six-speed super electronically controlled Sequential Shift automatic transmission featuring Tow Haul Mode with automatic transmission fluid warmer and transmission cooler.
 
Performance and handling
Tundra 4x4 models feature a one-touch, Part-Time four-wheel-drive system. All models are fitted with an auto limited slip rear differential for improved traction on slippery surfaces.
Tundra’s front suspension features a double-wishbone design with gas shocks, coil springs and stabilizer bar and a heavy-duty multi-leaf spring rear suspension with bias-mounted gas shocks. These combine to deliver rugged support and a capable yet comfortable ride.
 
Safety
Tundra features a generous suite of active and passive safety systems designed to help prevent accidents, and to protect driver and passengers if an incident occurs:
  • Standard Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and traction control
  • Front and rear ventilated disc brakes, enhanced with anti-lock braking system, Brake Assist (BA), and electronic brakeforce distribution technologies and Smart Stop Technology (SST): The system is designed to reduce engine power when the brake is firmly applied helping to bring the vehicle to a stop, even if the accelerator pedal is fully depressed.
  • Eight airbags (driver and front passenger air bags, front seat mounted side airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags, and roll-sensing head/side curtain airbags).
  • All position vertically-adjustable headrests and three-point lap and shoulder belts with front belt anchor height adjusters.
  • Anchor points for child restraint seats and child protector locks on models with rear doors.
Full featured
For 2011, the Tundra is generously equipped with the features Canadians demand in any vehicle – making it the stand-out in the full-size pick-up truck segment. Standard features include:
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • A full-featured audio system with AM/FM/CD player, MP3/WMA functionality, an input jack for portable music players, and anywhere from four to 12 Crewmax Limited speakers (depending on model)
