2011 Toyota Tundra Shown
Toyota is changing features and marginally increasing prices for 2012 Tundra light-duty pickups.
All 2012 Tundra half-tons will include a black upper instrument panel and black carpet, regardless of exterior and interior colors. Styled steel wheels will be standard across all models. Other standard features will include a Cold Area Package -- which included a heavy-duty battery and starter and windshield wiper de-icer with timer in 2011 -- daytime running lights and heated mirrors. A backup camera will be standard on Limited grades and Super White will be available as a paint choice for the Limited.
The MSRP for the 2012 Tundra ranges from $27,115 for the 4x2 Tundra Grade Double Cab V6 with a five-speed automatic transmission to $43,345 for the 4x4 CrewMax Limited with a 5.7-liter V8 and 6-speed automatic, reflecting an increase of $348, or 1.1 percent. Prices for the 2012 Tundra will go into effect beginning with start of production in Texas on September 1.
If you're wondering about the two-door Regular Cab Tundra, pricing for that model hasn't been released yet.
"We will announce Regular Cab pricing closer to its start of production, which is around the beginning of December," says Toyota spokesman Sam Butto.
