The Toyota Tundra Sets the ‘Work Truck’ Standard

Don’t leave things to chance when shopping for your next truck. Whether you’re searching specifically for a work truck, or you’re on the hunt for a pickup that can do it all, the new Toyota Tundra has got your back. Known for being reliable, the Tundra is packed with muscle and is just waiting to help you get the job done. Designed with sharp angles and the signature Toyota emblem, this Toyota was destined to stand out among the competition. Built with powerful and innovative features, you’ll find tackling your next project a breeze. Here at Dick Dyer Toyota, we created our top 3 reasons we believe the new Tundra sets the standard. Follow along as we explore what defines a “work truck”.


Whether you’re hauling some heavy machinery or heading off-terrain, you’re going to need some serious backup. With the Toyota Tundra, you can have all the power and control you need at your fingertips. Put the pedal to the medal with the Tundra’s i-Force 5.7L V8 engine. Robust and efficient, this V8 engine is able to deliver 381 horsepower with up to 401 pounds of torque. For added traction and control, each Tundra comes standard with Automatic Limited-Slip Differential (Auto LSD). with this feature, the brakes are applied to wheels with no traction, giving power where it’s needed most. 


For those moments when you’re having to haul a camper or a trailer full of heavy equipment to the worksite, make sure you’re putting your trust in a truck that’s guaranteed to get you where you need to go. When it comes to work, the Tundra has got you covered for all of your towing needs. With an integrated tow hitch receiver and trailer hitch, the new Toyota Tundra can tow up to 10,200 pounds, with a payload capacity of 1,730 pounds! When paired with the pickup’s heavy-duty battery and 38-gallon fuel tank, you’ll have no problem getting the job done, and getting it done right.


When designing the interior cabin of the 2021 Tundra pickup truck, our Toyota experts carefully crafted an interior that was as functional as it was comfortable. Placed between the available front bucket seats, you will see a large center console with a covered storage compartment. A 12V auxiliary outlet is located within the storage compartment for when your smartphone needs a little extra juice while on the go. For more storage space, the rear seats in both the Double Cab and CrewMax models effortlessly fold up, creating more room while simultaneously making loading cargo an easier process. With the rear power window and deck rail system, objects stored in the bed of your Tundra are kept safe and secure. If you’re looking for more stability and storage, we recommend the Tundra Trail Special Edition, which comes equipped with Michelin tires over 18-inch alloy rims and lockable bed storage boxes!
