2015 Toyota Tundra Enhancements
Last year the Toyota Tundra went through a complete overhaul, from top to bottom nearly everything was new. Now for the 2015 model year, Toyota looks to present an encore presentation as they unveil the 2015 Toyota Tundra with enhancements. While the half-ton truck is not going through quite as dramatic of a change as they did last year, it is receiving a facelift via a plethora of enhancements that have us here at Drive Wheaton very excited for the new model.
One of the biggest upgrades over the previous year is that the whole Tundra line will have standard V8 engines and the option to upgrade to an even more powerful V8 engine. The standard is a 4.6L i-Force that delivers 310 horsepower alongside 327 lb-ft of torque, while the available engine is a returning engine that has been the most popular option in the Tundra. It’s a 5.7L i-Force generating 381 horsepower with 401 lb-ft of torque, and is available in either regular gasoline or a flex fuel variant.
There are a few other new options on the Tundra as well, including the new spray-in bed liner. This liner increases the value of the truck, insuring that the inside of the Tundra’s bed has extra protection to avoid scratching and other damages, while also providing a better surface for cargo to stay put on. In the SR5 and Limited trim levels of the double cab Tundra model, Tundra owners will enjoy the added utility of rear under seat tray storage. And if trailering is your thing, then you can opt for the integrated trailer brake on your 5.7L model.
But the most important addition to the 2015 Toyota Tundra is the all-new TRD Pro Off-Road model. This upgrade package comes with a special blackout Toyota grille, TRD Pro bed panel stamping, skid plate, matte satin black badges and black headlight bezels to set it apart from the other levels of Tundra. It also sits atop 18” TRD black alloy wheels with exclusive Michelin Off-Road tires, while running on the 5.7L engine accompanied by a TRD dual exhaust system. Furthermore, the trim level completely upgrades the suspension system and pairs it with TRD-tuned Bilstein High-Performance shocks featuring internal hydraulic bump stops and piggyback external reservoirs, making it the perfect truck for any off-roader.
