The 2016 Toyota Tundra is ready to work with impressive towing capacity, choice of 4.6L and 5.7L engines, and Regular, Double Cab, and CrewMax models. Tundra is ready for any project and now comes in Blazing Blue Metallic for all models, and Inferno for the TRD Off-Road model.

Standard features include:
• Display Audio System with Touchscreen

From the aggressive grille designs to the bold Tundra badge stamped in the tailgate, Tundra commands respect. Offered in 10 models – based on SR, SR5, Limited and Platinum grades – and a total of 22 available configurations, there’s a powerful Tundra tough enough for any project you want to do.

With plenty of colour options to choose from, including, Silver Sky Metallic and Magnetic Grey Metallic, you’ll have more ways than ever to show up in style. Or, you can make a statement in Inferno, exclusively available on TRD Offroad models. Plus, our 1794 Edition is available in stunning Sunset Bronze Mica.

The Tundra’s Regular Cab Long Bed 5.7L is offered in both 4x2 and 4x4 models. Both feature a bold, chiseled exterior design, heated power-adjustable folding mirrors, 6.1” display audio with touchscreen and 18-inch styled steel wheels. Matched with an 8.1-foot “long box” cargo bed built to handle a 4'x 8' sheet of plywood, it’ll handle just about anything you throw in it.

Take your pick of 5 brawny Tundra models featuring our Double Cab. Featuring black mirrors, bumpers, handles and grille surround and 18-inch steel wheels, SR-grade models offered are: the 4x4 SR 4.6L, or 4x4 SR 5.7L both backed with a 6.5-foot cargo bed or the 4x4 SR Long Bed 5.7L with an 8.1-foot cargo bed. The beauty of the Double Cab models is the 4x4 Limited 5.7L, featuring chrome mirrors, bumper ends, handles and grille surround and 18” aluminum alloy wheels, a bed rail system with 4 tie-down cleats, power sliding rear window, fog lamps, and more.

The Tundra CrewMax combines a huge, spacious and plush cabin with a power vertical sliding rear window and a 5.5-foot cargo bed. The sleek 4x4 SR5 5.7L features 18-inch steel wheels, chrome bumper ends and grille surround, and black handles, mirrors and bumpers. The 4x4 Limited 5.7L adds chrome-finished accents including billet-style grille, mirrors and door handles. The 4x4 Limited 5.7L with Technology Package provides the convenience of premium navigation, rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring systems. The “urban”4x4 Platinum 5.7L is dressed up with a colour-keyed grille surround and bumpers, power moonroof, LED daytime running lights, Platinum badging, and much more.

The Tundra 4x4 CrewMax is available in an ultra-luxurious 1794 Edition. The Western-themed 1794 Edition pays homage to the Texas ranch, founded in the year 1794, where the Tundra plant is now situated. It features 20” chrome-clad alloy wheels, a unique chrome-surround grille with bright silver insert, a chrome and silver bumper, 1794 Edition badging, a power moonroof, and our powerful 5.7L V8 engine with a heavy duty towing package.

Loading and unloading your cargo bed is a breeze thanks to the hydraulic assistance of Tundra’s Easy Lower and Lift Tailgate. It opens and closes with as little as two fingers. Plus, the entire tailgate is easily removed, or it can be locked to secure your cargo, if you add a tonneau cover or shell.

Tundra’s available bed rail system includes 4 tie-down cleats, constructed of sturdy die-cast aluminum rated at 100kg or 200lb each. Each fully-adjustable cleat slides along the bed rails and is anchored to help ensure that what’s in the bed stays in the bed. The bed rails and cleats are standard on 4x4 Limited and Platinum models and available on all other models offering an SR5 Plus Package.

Available on the CrewMax Platinum and 1794 Edition, distinctive LED daytime running lamps will always illuminate the road and show your presence to other drivers. We also offer manual-leveling headlamps; when towing or hauling, the front of the vehicle may be tilted upwards, causing the headlamp beam to be raised to a level similar to that of high beams. Now, you can lower the headlamps to one of five selectable settings and remain considerate to oncoming traffic, while maintaining a clear view of the road ahead.

The Tundra offers a truckload of available accessories including a Chrome Accessory Package1. Exterior chrome accents make a bold statement and enhance Tundra’s premium style and stature. Or, keep what’s in the bed under wraps with Toyota’s innovative Hard Tri-Fold Tonneau Cover. The cover provides easy bed access along with full access to bed rails.

The Tundra’s interior is completely designed for purpose and practicality, without compromising on comfort and convenience. SR and SR5 grades are packaged for work or at home projects with unique driver and passenger zones, metallic accents and bold contrasting fabric. The Limited grade offers warm and inviting premium styling with leather seating surfaces, matching soft-touch stitched door and console surfaces, and woodgrain accents. Finally, the Platinum grade was luxuriously designed to indulge personal truck users, with perforated black diamond-stitched leather seating, door and instrument panel inserts, and brushed aluminum accents that offer an upscale urban feel.

The Western-themed 1794 Edition pays homage to the Texas ranch, founded in the year 1794, where the Tundra plant is now situated. The 1794 Edition CrewMax adds luxurious, Western-style refinement to Tundra’s legendary toughness. Inside is exclusive premium Saddle Tan Brown Leather seating with embossed and suede accents. Matching soft-touch materials accent the shift console, the front and rear door trim, and the instrument panel. Rich maple woodgrain adorns the steering wheel, dash and shifter.

The Tundra’s ergonomic design includes easy driver access to controls, making any drive a breeze – no matter how far you are going. The centre cluster has been placed close to the driver, putting audio and climate controls within easy reach. Dials are large enough to be operated with work gloves on. An instrument panel also features meters with 3D metallic rings and individual gauges grouped in a clear, easy-to-see design with a centre-mounted 3.5-inch TFT multi-information display screen.

When it comes to moving furniture, gear or supplies, Tundra’s 60/40-split rear “jump seat” design flips up with one hand in both the Double Cab and CrewMax. The result is a vast amount of cargo capacity. Add to this an under seat storage tray in the Double Cab, a huge centre console box with 12V power and room for your laptop on models with bucket seats, a large locking glove box, and an overhead console, you'll discover that Tundra offers versatile options for moving and storing your stuff.

The Tundra Double Cab and CrewMax models offer the option of a 40/20/40 front bench seat or heated bucket seats. With the bench seating, the centre seat folds down for use as an armrest with multiple storage compartments and dual cup holders. In all models, air conditioning with a cabin air filter is standard, while Limited and Platinum models offer dual-zone automatic climate control. Platinum models offer heated and ventilated leather seats with 10-way power adjustment and lumbar support with memory.

The Tundra is equipped with Toyota’s advanced display audio system with touchscreen, AM/FM radio, CD, MP3/WMA capability, USB and auxiliary input, and voice recognition. It also includes standard Bluetooth® and an integrated backup camera. SR models get a 6.1-inch display, while the SR5, Limited and Platinum models feature a 7-inch display with integrated SiriusXM satellite radio. The CrewMax Platinum adds premium JBL Audio. Available TRD Offroad Packages offer the Bongiovi Acoustics Digital Power Station.

When it comes to performance and capability, the Tundra takes a back seat to no one. Boasting big powerful brakes, two available engines – both offering a commanding blend of horsepower, acceleration and fuel efficiency – an advanced transmission, and a proven Towing Capacity1 of up to 4,625 kg (10,196 lbs) (4x2 Regular Cab Long Bed with standard 5.7 V8), the 2016 Tundra is tough enough for any project.

Both workhorse engines are governed by a 6-speed automatic Super ECT transmission that provides effortless shifting, even on uphill grades. Both engines also feature a standard transmission cooler system, as well as a standard transmission oil temperature gauge. On 5.7L models, a TOW/HAUL mode automatically changes shift patterns, boosts torque and engages engine braking to enhance control when hauling or towing heavy loads.

From the job site, to the commute home, or to the home improvement store on the weekend, the Tundra delivers sure-footed performance with exceptional stability under load. Its double wishbone suspension system with coil springs, gas shocks and stabilizer bar up front, and heavy duty multi-leaf springs and bias mounted gas shocks in the rear ensure it. If you like to venture off the beaten track, available TRD Offroad Packages on the Double Cab SR 5.7L and the CrewMax SR5 5.7L offer Bilstein Shock Absorbers that automatically alter damping based on speed and terrain for better tire-surface contact, increased cornering stability, and superior tracking.

With big power comes big responsibility. That’s why Tundra is equipped with enormous 13.9” front Brake Rotors and 4-piston calipers. Particularly when you’re towing, Tundra’s big rotors can help to provide the confidence that when you apply the brakes, the Tundra – and your trailer – will come safely to a stop. With Tundra, you don’t need to sweat the big stuff!

With a maximum payload of 855kg (1,895 lb.) and a towing capacity1 of 4,760kg (10,500 lb.) (4x2 Regular Cab Long Bed) it's safe to assume that, if the 2016 Tundra can't move it, it wasn't meant to be moved. After all, it towed a Space Shuttle! Tundra also works smart with a towing package on all 5.7L models including a heavy duty (Class IV Weight Distribution) hitch receiver, 4- or 7-pin connector, extendable, power adjustable folding and heated mirrors, trailer brake controller prewire and supplemental transmission cooler. The towing package now includes a trailer brake controller and an all-new 144L fuel tank, so you can fill up less often.

No matter how you use your Tundra, on or off the road, or to transport your family, your crew, your renovation supplies, your boat, or simply your morning coffee as you drive to work, you need to be able to rely on your truck to get you where you need to be – and get you there safely. Tundra’s complement of active and passive safety features and technologies won’t let you down.

The Tundra’s large foldable, power-adjustable heated mirrors help you to see what’s around you, and the standard backup camera shows you what’s behind on the display audio screen. Plus, Tundra is the first half-ton pickup to offer Blind Spot Monitor (BSM)1 with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA)2, standard on Double Cab Limited with Technology Package, CrewMax Platinum and 1794 Edition.

When the going gets rough, dirty or slippery, Tundra's driver-activated Automatic Limited Slip Differential (Auto LSD) has your back. When activated Auto LSD takes advantage of Tundra's traction control system to help control wheel spin – working to free the vehicle when one of the drive-wheels loses contact with the ground, or enhancing take off on uneven or roll-resistant surfaces, like sand.

As part of Toyota's Star Safety System™, Tundra boasts standard Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Active Traction Control (A-TRAC). VSC and A-TRAC work in unison to monitor both wheel speed and traction under various driving conditions, providing the precise amount of power and brake force at precisely the right time to help control steering and wheel spin on uneven or slippery surfaces.

Standard on 2016 Tundra is the Star Safety System, which includes six state-of-the-art accident avoidance technologies: Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) with Brake Assist (BA), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), and Smart Stop Technology (SST).

The Tundra comes equipped with driver and front passenger airbags, roll-sensing head/side curtain and front seat-mounted side airbags. And Tundra is the first half-ton pickup to offer standard driver and front passenger knee airbags.

Low tire pressure can reduce fuel efficiency on your Toyota Tundra and increase the chance of a blowout, especially when towing or hauling heavy payload. Tundra’s direct tire pressure monitoring system employs tiny sensors inside each wheel to monitor tire pressure and trigger a warning light on the dash if tire pressure drops below the recommended, safe pressure range.
