Toyota Tundra Overview

Powerful Capability and Utility at Your Fingertips - Meet the 2021 Toyota Tundra in Portsmouth

With standard V8 power, four-wheel drive, and a top towing capacity of more than 10,000 pounds, the Toyota Tundra has long been the pickup truck that New Hampshire drivers turn to when they want a vehicle that stands out from the crowd. At Toyota of Portsmouth, where the Tundra has long been a favorite of ours to recommend, we're ready to help you get to know the latest, 2021 model a little better.


What's New for the 2021 Toyota Tundra?

The current generation of Toyota Tundra has been going strong for several years now. The model underwent a significant update in 2020, including a streamlined range of engine and trim options. As a result, the 2021 model doesn't get any major updates. However, it does introduce fans to two special editions - the Trail Edition and the Nightshade Special Edition. Both are optional packages for many trim levels and offer a range of special enhancements that are mostly cosmetic.

2021 Tundra Performance

Regardless of the trim level you choose and whether or not you go for one the special, add-on packages, every 2021 Toyota Tundra gets its power from a 5.7-liter V8 engine with 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard.

Depending on the options you choose this system gives the Toyota Tundra a towing ability that ranges between 8,800 pounds and 10,100 pounds. Our team can explain the ins and outs of Tundra utility and help you get the maximum amount of power for all your towing tasks.

2021 Tundra Capability

When it comes to performance, the Tundra errs on the side of simplicity. Toyota designed the truck with proven, durable engineering. The result is a truck that's ready to stand the test of time and take on your toughest challenges.

It starts with the actual construction of the Tundra. Toyota has stuck with the strength of a body-on-frame design, using high-strength steel throughout to make sure the Tundra is as durable as they come. A solid rear axle also comes standard, allowing the Tundra to reach impressive towing and payload capacities.

One of the Tundra's advantages in the segment is its standard V8 engine. While competitors often start with a base V6, the Tundra gives you its most powerful engine option right from the start. The 5.7-liter V8 has 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. It's an engine that allows the Tundra to tow more than 10,000 pounds and haul more than 1,700 pounds with the proper equipment.

If it's an off-road pickup that you have in mind, then the new Tundra can more than match your expectations. The Truck's TRD variants offer a robust four-wheel drive system along with options like Bilstein shocks, anti-sway bars, skid plates, and more.

Tundra Design and Utility

The Tundra is a pickup that can cater to both your utilitarian needs and your upscale comfort expectations.

Sitting in the driver's seat, you'll find the Tundra to have a cabin that focuses on simple, ergonomic design. Toyota has gone out of its way to place controls and features in easily accessible locations. From the Tundra's massive center console to its fold-up rear seats, there's plenty of utility to be found inside the cabin as well.

While base Tundra models are fairly Spartan, it's easy to find yourself surrounded by luxury as you move up in trim levels. Models like the 1794 Edition and Platinum trim offer features like rear wood trim, heated leather seats, and more.

A variety of technology systems are available in the Tundra as well. Notably, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard with the new model's infotainment system.

Trim Levels Full of Valuable Upgrades

If you want more than the base model has to offer, the Toyota Tundra has a wide range of trim options beyond the Tundra SR. The SR5, Limited, and Platinum are crammed full of great features and technology. And if you want something really special? The 1794 Edition transforms the Tundra from a top-tier truck into an exceptional one. Here's a slice of what its higher trims have to offer:

  • The Tundra SR5 replaces the 6.1-inch screen of the SR with an 7-inch infotainment system. It also comes storage compartments under its rear seats and a sliding rear-window.
  • The Tundra Limited adds in a premium audio system and built-in navigation. You'll also get power-operated heated leather bucket seats, chrome mirror/door accents, and a power-operated rear sliding window. It finally adds 20-inch wheels for higher ground clearance.
  • The Tundra Platinum offers heated/cooled front seating, a JBL premium audio system, and a moonroof. It also opens access to the TRD Off-Road Package, which can add in Bilstein shocks, all-terrain tires, and a front skid plate, among other perks.
  • The Tundra 1794 Edition comes with many of the same features as the Platinum but also packs in a range of other valuable features like fog lights, HD radio, and power-folding mirrors. The 1794 Edition also offers unique styling and a solid off-road performance.

Interior Options and Performance Powertrains

In addition to its trim models, the Tundra also offers two different cabin configurations: the Double Cab and CrewMax. If you're driving in the Double Cab, you'll get seating for five. Crewmax models, meanwhile, bump the Tundra's seating up to six. No matter which version you drive you'll have plenty of room for passengers.

Drivers looking for something a bit more robust, meanwhile, might prefer the Tundra's 5.7-liter V8 option. Bumping its performance numbers up to 381 horsepower and 401 pounds-feet torque, experts place its max towing capacity at 10,200 pounds. That's nothing to shrug at.

Toyota Safety Sense-P Packs in Peace of Mind

Receiving solid safety ratings from the IIHS and NHTSA, the Tundra's chassis is the sturdy and durable, just like you'd expect from a good full-size truck. The real centerpiece of the Tundra's safety package, however, is Toyota's Safety Sense-P package. Offered in the Tundra as standard equipment, this suite of active safety technology provides a wide range of tools designed to help you avoid accidents before they happen.

These include everything from the pre-collision system with pedestrian detection to radar-guided cruise control, lane departure alerts, and more. The usefulness of these features can't be overstated. Pickup trucks are some of the most powerful vehicles on the road. When you're behind the wheel of something like the Tundra, you want everything available to protect yourself and the other people around you.
