2016 Toyota Tundra Baja gains some new features first time since 2007. Therefore, this full-size truck got back to the market race to win hearts of consumers worldwide. The main competitor of this outstanding vehicle is Ford F-150, but it has excellent references and certainly can compete with the king of the trucks. The exterior will be available in several colours (black, Blue ribbon metallic, Magnetic gray metallic, Radiant red, Silver sky metallic, or Super white). The cabin was slightely raised in order to improve driver’s visibility, with unexpectedly luxurious interior available in three colours (Black, Graphite or Sang beige). This full-size truck is capable for both on- and off-road demands.
Exterior and Interior
Exterior of 2016 Toyota Tundra Baja generally resembles to other Tundra models. Therefore, body form is quite similar, but with some alterations that make this car authentic. But, let’s start from the front. On the front fascia we can see a redesigned grille with fully written name of this vehicle, instead of the logo that we used to see before. A massive racing bumper below the grille was added during the process of redesign. It is made of steel, which gives impression of aggressiveness and strength, with addition of a smaller lower air dam. Headlights are equipped with LED lamps with a daytime running option included. On the back side, a mechanism for easy opening of tailgate was incorporated.
Interior of the cabin of 2016 Toyota Tundra Baja gives impression of luxury which is not usual for working trucks. Premium materials, including natural leather, were used for upholstering. The cabin inside is more spacious comparing to vehicles in the sam class, with modern designing solutions.
As of technology features, we can expect a 7 inch LED screen obtaining necessary information about motor, fuel consumption, temperature and other data that might be needed during a drive. The advantage of this data display is that it completely doesn’t distract driver’s attention in any moment during the drive of this truck.
Infotainment and safety features are quite simmilar to other Tundra vehicles. They provide both pleasure and safety to all passengers while driving long distance routs.
Under the hood of a new Toyota Tundra Baja one might find a 5.7 liter V8 engine. That engine can develop 383 hp and 4×4 chassis and an AWD. With appropriate sized wheels, it has enough power for driving on all kinds of off-road surfeces (e.g. sand, snow). The V8 is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Combination of an engine and appropriate gearbox enables this truck to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in only 6.3 seconds.
