Toyota’s first full-size pickup arrived in 1999 to replace the mid-size T100. The Indiana-built truck originally featured both regular-cab and extended-length Access cab models, but added a four-door Double Cab version for the 2004 model year. An all-new and beefed-up Tundra lineup arrived for the 2007 model year from Toyota’s Texas manufacturing facility. Available engines consisted of a 236-horsepower V-6 or optional 271- and 381-horsepower V-8s. For 2010, a new 310-horsepower V-8 became the new mid-range engine.
