The Toyota Tundra Can Handle Street, Roads, and Highway Conditions

There are a number of pick-up trucks that can handle street, roads, and highway driving conditions. However, only a select few pick-up trucks have true off-road capability. Among the most durable and reliable off-road trucks is the legendary and popular Toyota Tundra. From mountain roads to sand dunes, the Tundra can handle it all. So how does this popular Toyota pick-up truck do it?

Let's start off with the number of different trims available for the Tundra. The TRD Pro and the TRD Off-Road Edition are developed by the company's special Toyota Racing Division. This elite builder adds a number of special features to these Tundra models to make them off-road-ready without having to rely on any aftermarket equipment.

The TRD Off-Road edition rides on 2.5-inch aluminum-bodied Fox Internal Bypass shocks. These tailor-made shocks offer a smooth ride over all off-road conditions. Also, the TRD Pro's rear-wheel now has a two-inch travel boost over the previous model.

For those who are looking for serious off-road driving, the Tundra can be optioned with “trail-tuned” monotube Bilstein shocks, skid plates shielding for both the engine and fuel tank. This allows the Tundra to handle rocky, uneven surfaces while providing a smoother ride and undercarriage protection.

The TRD Pro rides on 18-inch satin-black aluminum forged wheels and Michelin P275/65R-18 tires. The wheel and tire combination is able to handle all the power sent by the 4.6-liter V-8 engine or the optional 5.7-liter V-8. All Tundra models are also available in either 4x2 or 4x4 driving configurations.
