The Tundra can be found in 2- or 4x4 as well as in three taxicab designs: normal cab, Dual Taxicab and also CrewMax. The CrewMax is the biggest taxicab in the half-ton sector considering that Chrysler terminated the Huge Cab choice for the Ram 1500. The CrewMax comes only with a 5-foot, 6-inch bed, while other versions can be gotten with either a 6.5-foot or an 8-foot cargo bed.
2012 Toyota Tundra Double Cab
New for 2012
A new Chrome Bundle for Double Taxicab and also CrewMax vehicles includes a chrome exhaust tip, chrome side mirrors, chrome door manages and 18-inch chrome-clad wheels. The Cold Location Package, heated side mirrors and also daytime running lights are currently standard on all versions, as well as a back-up camera is a brand-new attribute of the Restricted trim level. The cockpit console now has a black coating, and also the towing package is not packed with other alternatives and must currently be gotten separately.
Toyota made certain this Tundra would not have sand kicked in its face by designing a large, robust pick-up that appears like it could bully any truck on the market-- a minimum of from the front. The large grille, sculptured hood as well as husky bumper present an intimidating head-on sight. From the side, the Tundra is rather traditional. A deck-rail adjustable tie-down system is optional for all freight beds.
Exterior features consist of:
-17-, 18- or 20-inch wheels
-Optional power-sliding rear window

The Tundra's inside is developed to accommodate functioning people. The control knobs are easy to grip, despite having job gloves, and the gauges are very easy to check out at a look yet put at the end of long barrels in the dash. There are lots of storage options, particularly with a center console that could hold a laptop and hanging data. Also the regular cab Tundra has enough area behind the seats to hold five-gallon paint containers. The seats are vast, helpful and comfortable. The Platinum Bundle adds luxury touches that until now were only offered in trucks like premium Ford F-150s.
Inside functions consist of:
-Requirement dual-zone a/c
-Two front 12-volt power outlets
