The second generation of full-size pickup Toyota Tundra was introduced in 2006, and hit the market in 2007. The car became larger than the predecessor, and has a new V8 engine of 5.7 liters, an outstanding maximum 381 hp.

At the Chicago Auto Show in 2014 Toyota introduced a series TRD Pro for Tacoma and 4Runner models, in addition to the crazy orange Tundra, which will be described in Toyota Tundra Review. All TRD Pro Series models received serious enough technical equipment.
Tundra TRD can deal with any road without problems, since it is equipped better than other versions of the model. It has unique customized shock absorbers Bilstein, TRD springs, which provide additional five centimeters of clearance in the front and even softer tread on uneven surfaces due to reduced stiffness. On the road and city streets Tundra TRD Pro is smooth and comfortable, although the tires Michelin ORP P255 / 40R18 can’t boast of tenacity, and they start to make noise significantly at cruising speed. By the way, up to cruising speed Tundra TRD Pro accelerates easily thanks to the great power of the 5.7-liter naturally aspirated V8. 381 hp and 544 Nm of torque is more than enough for this truck.
