Pickup trucks come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and colors, but for most, the key quality wanted in a truck is power. Power to handle whatever is thrown at it, whether it be to tow or haul a hefty load or to conquer the most rugged of off-road trails. For consumers in the market for a full-size pickup that offers above-average capabilities on the road and off, the 2016 Toyota Tundra is an unbeatable choice.

It's not every day one gets the chance to basically build a vehicle how they want it, which is one reason why consumers love pickup trucks. Trucks like the 2016 Toyota Tundra offer a variety of options when it comes to cab style, bed length, and trim level. Consumers can opt for three cab styles – regular, extended “double”, or “CrewMax” crew cab – and three bed lengths – 5.5-foot short, 6.5-foot standard, or 8.1-foot long. Depending upon which configuration is chosen, there are six trim levels up for grabs: SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition, and TRD Pro.
The SR5, for instance, can be had in double cab or CrewMax, and is a top consumer pick. It comes with perks like fog lights, exterior chrome trim, variable intermittent windshield wipers, and seven-inch touchscreen, satellite and HD radios, traffic information, and navigation app. Consumers who opt for the SR5 CrewMax reap more benefits, such as a power opening rear window and overhead storage console.
More often than not, consumers seeking a pickup truck are in need of serious strength, which is why the 2016 Tundra prominently stands out to many. The Tundra is rugged and durable, which allows it to conquer whatever is thrown at it – easily and efficiently. Consumers in need of serious off-road capability find the Tundra's TRD Pro trim to be an excellent match. It boasts off-road tires and off-road suspension, Bilstein shock absorbers, and four movable bed tie-down cleats. Consumers are also pleased with the available TRD Off-ROad package that equips the Tundra with even more capabilities with items like skid plates and tow hooks.
A pickup truck without adequate power is not only inefficient, it's a disappointment – especially for serious truck fans. Luckily, consumers who opt for the 2016 Tundra are anything but disappointed in power. This is because the Tundra offers a choice of two V8 engines that provide the power needed to tow, haul, and even master the roughest off-road terrain one can find.
SR double cabs and SR5 trims house a 4.6-liter V8 paired to either 2WD or 4WD – a combo that creates a maximum towing capacity between 6,400 and 6,800 pounds. Our consumers seeking even more power in a truck find the Tundra's 5.7-liter V8 to be the optimal choice. Found in the Limited, Platinum, 1794, and TRD Pro trims, this engine can also be had with either 2WD or 4WD and manages a maximum towing capacity of between 9,800 and 10,500 pounds.
