2009 toyota trucks tacoma and tundra

The 2009 Toyota Tacoma and Tundra are the newest addition in the variety of Toyota cars ranging from luxury sport utilities to pick-up trucks. With solid build and an array of new features to enhance durability and reliability off the road Toyota trucks are ideal for heavy towing. Variety of engine, cab and pick up bed design and reasonable pricing earned Toyota the popularity it has today.
In the past trucks were simply meant for carrying loads and they looked somewhat similar and hence monotonous. But today with auto makers like Toyota things have changed to a great extent. Power output of trucks increased in keeping with size. Toyota gives you plenty of choices starting from basic cargo haulers to compact or mid-size trucks that can challenge a sedan in terms of luxury and comfort. The two main categories of Toyota trucks are Tacoma and Tundra.
The 2009 Toyota Tacoma is available in three cab styles – regular, extended or Access Cab and crew cab. Each one comes in varied body style and trims. So, there is something for everyone with Toyota. Tacoma buyers have 2.7L 4 cylinder engine and 4L V6 engine to choose from. For regular hauling V6 is obviously a better option.
For about a decade Toyota Tacoma has been the backbone in the line of Toyota’s compact pick up trucks. These trucks are smaller in scale with a towing capacity up to 3,000 pounds compared to a full size truck. Compact trucks give better mileage than their full-size counterparts. Toyota Tacoma 2WD having 4 cylinder 2.7L 5-speed manual engine has EPA fuel economy rate 20 mpg in city and 25 on highway while Tacoma 4WD of same capacity rates 17 in city and 22 for highway.
Those who have heavier towing needs better opt for Toyota Tundra which is a full-size truck with much higher tow capacity. Since Tundra’s launch in the beginning of the new millennium it gave a tough competition to the Big Three’s pick up truck versions. With superior V8 engine, additional comfort features and the reputation for durability Tundra emerged to be a popular one amidst recreational pickup buyers as well as serious truck users.
Toyota Tundra trucks are available in regular cab, double cab and CrewMax cab styles. The regular cab extends to double cab with an additional pair of forward-hinged doors while Tundra CrewMax with an extra large cab can carry up to 6 passengers.
The 2009 Toyota Tundra is available in 6 trims each for regular and CrewMax while double cab body style comes in 12 trims. Cargo bed size is also flexible for Tundra. You can have 2009 Tundra regular cab or double cabs having 6.5-foot to 8-foot bed, while the CrewMax comes with a 5.5-foot bed only. With wide variety of configurations it is much more convenient to use Tundra for hard-core towing as well as passenger hauling.
With flexibility in design, V6 and V8 engine options and high-end technological features to improve off-road ability it is easily understandable why Toyota Tundra was chosen for Truck Trend’s annual Truck of the Year award for 2008.
