2005 Toyota Tundra Review

The Car Connection Expert Review

Tundra

Toyota's full-size Tundra pickup is invigorated with a transfusion of power for 2005, with a new base V-6 engine and added muscle for the optional V-8. The newly standard 4.0-liter V-6 uses variable valve timing with intelligence (VVT-i) to generate 245 horsepower and 282 lb-ft of torque, while the 4.7-liter V-8 now produces a generous 282 horses and 325 lb-ft of toque at 3400 rpm. The V-8 models also gain a new standard five-speed automatic transmission, while a new six-speed manual transmission replaces the five-speed manual with the V-6 (here, a five-speed automatic remains available). The SR5 trim level now includes power windows, door locks, and mirrors, dual vanity mirrors, a lighting package, rear sliding window with privacy glass, cruise control on the V-6 model and remote keyless entry. A tow package is newly standard on the extended Double Cab version, which includes full rear seating area with conventional rear-hinged doors.

Purchased my 2008 Tundra new. Later that year it accelerated out of control. Curiously as part of the acceleration problem the stereo system blew out when it accelerated. I believe it's an ale trivial problem... + More »
