What's New for 2019?

Not much has changed from the previous version of the Toyota Tundra, which should delight drivers from all over the Wilkesboro and North Wilkesboro areas. That's because the Tundra has earned strong marks for its high-end V-8 engine options, a wealth of features available and the rugged towing and hauling capabilities you need a pickup of this size for. The notable new addition is the TRD Pro trim, which took a hiatus for the 2018 model year, but is now back and better than ever. When you select this off-road- and adventure-oriented version of the Tundra, you'll enjoy a revised suspension system and new wheels that add a striking look to the off-roading capabilities you're choosing this version for.

 

Performance and Capabilities

While the Tundra may prove to be too bulky and burdensome for everyday travels around Asheville's downtown area or closer here to Boone, it's the pair of available V-8 engines that really make this a worthwhile truck for your towing and hauling needs. The starting engine is a 4.6-liter V-8, producing 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque, while the upgrade is a 5.7-liter V-8, worth 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. An available 4x4 system can be added on most versions, most notably with the TRD Pro for off-roading capabilities, but also for navigating through the occasional rough weather we see here in the Lenoir and Hickory area. In the right setup, your Tundra can tow up to 10,200 pounds, with a max payload of 1,730 pounds.

Safety and Technology

As we mentioned, the Tundra tends to be a more stripped-down truck compared to competitors in the technology area. That can be a blessing for many truck lovers from Boone and Wilkesboro who'd rather focus on the job at hand and the road than all kinds of bells and whistles. With that said, the Tundra still offers a fairly generous base setup with a touchscreen, Bluetooth, a USB port and a rearview camera. Higher trims will add some additions to the infotainment front, but most advanced features available in the Tundra are geared toward either off-road driving, or to assist you with towing a trailer.

Where the Tundra really impresses is its suite of standard safety features, which includes forward collision warning and mitigation, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control and automatic high beams. Many trucks skip out on safety features like those, but you'll get that full Toyota Safety Sense package as a standard offering in the new Tundra, helping you to stay out of harm's way while on the go.
