The 2016 Toyota Tundra at sunrise, accompanied by the highly modified second-generation Tundra from Total Chaos Fabrication.
The platinum trim line has all the available bells and whistles, including power-folding mirrors, a sunroof, LED running lights, heated and cooled front seats and a 12-way power-adjustable driver's seat.
In addition to the Platinum trim line, the 2016 Tundra is also available in five other models. The SR and SR5 are available with either a 4.6L or 5.7L V-8 engine, while the Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition and TRD Pro are only available with the larger of the two.
The Platinum trim line of our test model comes with a 5.5-foot bed, but a 6.5- and 8-foot bed are available on lower trims.
20-inch wheels are standard on the Platinum trim. Wrapped in P275/55 all-season rubber, the setup is meant more for on-pavement driving rather than off-road excursions.
In case you forgot you were driving a Tundra, the model name is stamped into the tailgate.
The Tundra Platinum features halogen headlamps with manual level control.
The silver billet grille on the Toyota Tundra is imposing from the front.
With a wheelbase of over 12 feet and an overall length of over 19 feet, the Toyota Tundra is one large beast.
Blind-spot monitoring, parking sensors and rear cross-traffic alert are standard on the Platinum trim line.
The interior design of the Toyota Tundra is competitive in the full-size truck segment. Although reaching the infotainment system may be a stretch for smaller drivers, the climate controls are large and easily operated while wearing gloves.
Quilted inserts on the seats and dash lend a luxury touch to the interior of the Toyota Tundra Platinum.
The Tundra CrewMax has just as much legroom in the rear seats as the front.
The rear seats in the Tundra flip up to offer ample cargo space.
