Toyota Premieres Tundra CrewMax at NAIAS

Toyota staged the world premiere of the all-new 2007 Tundra CrewMax full-size pickup at NAIAS 2007. The four-door CrewMax will offer the most room, versatility and storage in the Tundra lineup.

Larger in every dimension than the model it replaces, the 2007 Tundra is available in 31 model configurations, with a choice between 4X2 and 4X4 drivetrains, and towing capacity of more than 10,000 pounds. This second-generation Tundra offers three cab styles, three wheelbases, three bed lengths, three engines and three trim levels.

The CrewMax fills the bill for a wide range of buyers, seeking roominess, comfort and convenience. Its best-in-class rear legroom of 44.5 inches provides the interior accommodations of a full-size SUV, with the utility of a pickup.

The next-generation Tundra was designed and engineered in the U.S. and will be assembled exclusively at the company’s truck plants in Texas and Indiana. Next year, a 2009 Tundra model powered by the 5.7-liter i-Force V8, which puts out 381 horsepower, will be offered featuring flexible fuel capability with E85 ethanol.
