Tundra Gives Toyota Full-Sized Power and Reliability

2015 Toyota Tundra Grey

Truck enthusiasts are a unique brand of people. Most have a loyalty to one particular brand regardless of what others have to offer. Knowing this when they started launching the Tundra, Toyota has gained a great deal of its own loyalty due mostly to the amazing reliability and resale value that is offered on all their vehicles. The Tundra shows up with some added sophistication over previous models, but still has powertrains that need some work in order to compete in the fuel mileage race.
