Toyota unveils 2007 Tundra CrewMax
(autoinsidenews) - Toyota debuted the 2007 Tundra CrewMax at the Detroit Auto Show. American-designed, engineered and built, the CrewMax is the full four-door version of the automaker's full-size pick-up. Following the introductions of the regular and double-cab versions of the Tundra, which made their debuts at the 2006 Chicago Auto Show, the CrewMax completes a lineup of 31 different configuration combinations. The 2007 Tundra comes in three cab styles, three wheelbases, three bed lengths, three trim levels and three engine choices, with either four- or two-wheel-drive.
The 2007 Tundra offers three available engines, including the all-new 5.7L i-Force V8, which produces 381-hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. The 5.7L is available every model configuration, which is more power than any other light-duty truck engine. The 5.7L engine will have city/highway fuel economy ratings of 16/20 mpg and 14/18 mpg, for two-wheel and four-wheel drive models respectively, reports Trend.
The new Tundra is larger in every dimension than the model it replaces, and the CrewMax is massive. The Tundra CrewMax provides a best in class rear legroom at 44.5 inches in its rear most position. The CrewMax rear seat offers the segment's only reclining and sliding rear seat. A 10-inch slide range allows the owner to custom-tailor passenger comfort and room for onboard cargo.
The 2007 Tundra is Toyota's first true entry into the full-size truck market, and it is solid entry. The CrewMax, arriving at dealers in March, will join the Tundra Regular Cab and Tundra Double Cab models, which arrive in February.
