The 2015 Toyota Tundra is one of the Toyota trucks, three 2015 models that shall be offered with a special TRD package equipment. Under the name 2015 Tundra TRD Pro, Toyota presented this with great and fantastic off-road ability and which doesn’t seem to know of any limits. The Tundra hit its highest U.S. sales in 2007. Since then, the Toyota Tundra has been seen to struggle to sell just above a 100,000 units. So what really could be missing from the Tundra ’s short and long bed and three cab style options with three engines topping with a potent 5.7l V8 Powertrain that is able to deliver well over 383 horsepower?
2015 Toyota Tundra Design
The new-generation 2015 Toyota Tundra Pickup truck is expected to maintain the chassis of its predecessor. The exterior modifications of the 2015 tundra are set to make it much lighter. This model will also be available in either two doors or the much preferred 4-door cabins. Its functional enhancements and styling include; a solid steel made bumper which is said to have a lowered air dam. Its grille has letters written on it in its traditional Toyota or blue oval badge in the center. The tundra platinum grille is coated with a graphite grey color. Its fender flares are seen to be an elaborated tweak to this model’s design. A modest lift by its suspension and its large set of off-road tires are the last finishing touch to make this car a hardcore racing machine.

For the interior upgrades to this model, we can be optimistic to see a few dashboard refreshments. The 2015 Tundra has a wide and long cabin that has a flat floor, creating rooms that will comfortably allow for one to cross their legs. Its seats will be upholstered in prime leather and will offer the heated seats feature.
The 2015 Tundra’s Powertrain

There will be the option of the 5.7l V8, 4.0l V6 and the 4.6l V6 power units with the V6 engines producing up to 270hp and 278lb-ft of torque. The V8 Powertrain will be able to deliver up to 381hp which is an increase from the previous output of 310hp and 401lb-ft from 327lb-ft of torque and shall be paired with an 8-speed gearbox.
The V6 engines shall be paired with a 5-speed automatic transmission. It is expected that the tundra fitted with its standard power unit shall be able to sprint from 0-100km/h in just 6.3 seconds, which is similar to the previous 2013 model.
