2010 Toyota Tundra Pricing Announced

2010 Toyota Tundra Pricing Announced

Toyota has announced pricing for the 2010 Tundra full-size pickup, and it will start at $22,960 for a regular cab, standard bed, two-wheel-drive model with the base 236-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 engine and all-new Work Truck Package. Prices go up to $42,155 for a CrewMax Limited four-wheel-drive model with the top-of-the-line 381-hp, 5.7-liter V-8.

Toyota has also given the Tundra several notable updates, including an all-new small-displacement eight-cylinder gas engine.

Replacing the Tundra's legacy powertrain, which consisted of a 4.7-liter V-8 and five-speed automatic transmission, is a 4.6-liter V-8 rated at 310 hp and 327 pounds-feet of torque, paired with a new six-speed automatic. Fuel economy estimates for two-wheel-drive Tundras with the 4.6-liter V-8 are 15/20 mpg city/highway. Selecting the 4.6-liter V-8 powertrain saves approximately $1,000 over choosing the 5.7-liter V-8 option. (Please see our complete road-test review of the new 2010 Toyota Tundra with the 4.6-liter V-8.)

Tundra models are split into two classes: Tundra Grade and Limited Grade. Tundra Grade models sport a new two-bar front grille and revised taillamps, while Limited Grade models wear a billet-style grille. Additional standard equipment on all Tundra pickups includes driver and front-passenger knee airbags, height-adjustable headlamps, and a redesigned seven-pin towing hitch connector that sits above the hitch to help avoid damage and dirt. Also, a shelf to help organize storage space has been added to the lower glove box.

2010 Toyota Tundra Work Truck Package

The new Tundra Grade Work Truck Package is aimed at commercial buyers. It's a stripper model available in only regular or Double Cab configurations with vinyl seating and rubber floors. Work Truck Tundras will be priced from $195 to $1,030 less than the truck’s standard MSRP, depending on the model. For example, a regular cab Tundra Grade V-6 is listed at $23,155. However, if it's equipped with the Work Truck Package the MSRP is reduced by $195, bringing the Work Truck MSRP for this model down to $22,960.

At the high end of the spectrum is the new Platinum Package option for Limited Grade Tundras, equipped with a 5.7-liter V-8. It includes heated and ventilated seats, a sunroof and wood-grain trim for an extra $4,662. A Limited Grade 5.7-liter V-8 Tundra CrewMax with the Platinum Package is priced at $46,817.

The 2010 Toyota Tundra goes on sale later this month.



The work truck package still can't compete with Ford or chevys work trucks in price, its not worth it. Until they get a fully boxed frame no companys are going to be getting the work truck, the frame is just to flexible to be a work truck.

doesnt look like its changed at all! still as ugly as the last one!

and i agree! their "work" trucks cant compete with the quality truck that come from america! (dodge especially)

If the all strength problems were not enough, the just plain ugly would be. Give me an American truck. Period.

It may be "ugly" but at least Toyota doesn't need a government bailout.

And I don't think having a fully boxed frame is going to help Dodge avoid bankruptcy!

I think the truck looks really nice, I've been very satisfied with my Tundra. The only time I take it to the dealership is to get my oil changed. Toyota had to have known the challenge they faced when they entered the large truck segment and that's the good ol' Ford, Chevy and Dodge boys. You see it all the time on these blogs, no matter what Toyota does, the good ol' boys are always so biased and slam them for whatever Toyota does. The only way Toyota will compete in the large truck segment is when the good ol' boys finally start to die off.

Not sure why wood grain is considered a upgrade and costs more?

Are 80 year olds buying loaded trucks?

I quote from above, "The new Tundra Grade Work Truck Package is aimed at commercial buyers. It's a stripper model available in only regular or Double Cab configurations with vinyl seating and rubber floors."
Awesome! I want the "stipper" model. haha

Really, I guess the 3Billion that Toyota asked from Japan's government was for additional cup holders then.

Make no mistake ALL automotive companies are suffering.

Not a work truck at all, its complete garbage get a Ford with no bailout, the best work truck ever period. getting a tundra with a 8's bed your just asking for trouble and be laughed at, and to be a wobble trap on pot holes.

Yesterday I placed my order for my new 2010 Tundra Limited grade Crew Max 5.7 4X4 with the Platinum package, to be delivered in June. For a total out-of-the-door cost of nearly $50,000..... that is a lot to pay for any half-ton pickup truck. But at my age it may very well be the last truck I'll buy. This will be by first foreign-brand truck ever. The Tundra gets my vote because it is the best truck for the money for what I want and need. No other truck even comes close. All the criticism about the Tundra is unwarranted. Check one out for yourself to see why the Tundra is better than the best from Ford, GM or Dodge (if your pride will let you). Start with that magnificent 5.7-liter 32-valve, DOHC, 381-hp, all-aluminum engine. No other truck has it. Everyone else is just green with envy.

Let me get this right. Fully boxed is the best, but Ford, and Chevy only use fully boxed on their 1/2 ton nothing else. Anything above a 1/2 ton they use open C fram hmmmmm wounder why?

Because they use a much HEAVIER DUTY frame on the Super Duty. They can't use the fully box frame because they have to make the frame interchangable for different types of applications such a box truck, plumber's truck, ambulance, flat bed, etc. So they use a HEAVY DUTY frame. On the light duty truck, they don't get interchanged like that they can use a fully boxed frame. Either way the Ford is better than the Tundra frame.

Hey Don Braeder Toyota not the only Aluminium Block out, Check out the GMC Seirra 6.2 403 Hp in 1/2 ton Truck. Tundra is alright, but I think the Nissan Titian is better and has alot of Power too. 317 Hp with 385 Ft. Now the new Ford F-150 is better.Can't wait when the 5.0 Coyote and the 6.2 Boss comes out. But that my opinion. We all have different taste of Trucks. God Bless!!!!

Give it time Tundra will put a fully box frame on. Ford started it and now Gm, Dodge, Nissan and other Trucks has it. You buy whatever you like and be Happy.

I am really sorry Don Braeder but you have totally wasted your money. If you did any research at all on the tundra then you would see that it doesnt even compare to Chevy and Ford. The tundra needs 4.30 gears to tow less than Ford with its 3.73 which shows anyone how well buit a trucks drivetrain is. Also if you look under at simply the suspension components side by side the tundras components are a lot smaller, scary. Also i would rather have a cast iron engine block in a truck rather than an aluminum one. By all reviews i have read and by driving one myself the interior is ergonomicly badly designed and the ride is very bounce mainly due the flexible frame. i have verified all these claims myself.

Why would anyone want to have a cast iron block?? Heavier, rusts and worse head dissapation. Let me guess, stronger....that's why there is something called cylinder liners.

I don't understand what drives people to seek out a toyota article and b.... complain and whine about how their choice of truck is better. Does anyone really think they are going to change someone 35k purchase with anonymous drivel posted on the net? If you like Ford then buy a Ford. Same for GM, Dodge etc. Anyone who has truely done their research and has any real world experience knows that every manufacturer builds some exceptional stuff and some crap. Some build more crap than others.
Spend your time doing something constructive, go help your neighbor move with your choice of truck...maybe help an old lady cross the road.

Comment to the wobbling issue. Yes Tundra Wobbles cause it got some a$$. But seriousely, who drives through pot holes at 25mph or even close to 40mph with a load of expensive goods, unless you are a hard core off roader. If so, a 1 ton truck is not ideal. I don't think wobbling matter if you just slow down.

P.S Tundra is now Made in in TEXAS. It is now an AMERICAN MADE PRODUCT. Funded by Toyota, to provide jobs to AMERICAN's. So, get over it. Soon you will see BMW's made in USA.... Oh wait it is already being made in USA. Why beef and argue, soon your Ford Truck will be flying. Then Toyota flying next to it.

I'm a missionary working the Tanzania Africa. I'm in need of a heavy pickup, equal to a Ford 250, but Toyota as parts are eazier to find in Africa. Needs to be crew cab 4x4 and able to tow 5 tons. I have been told to purchase one in Sada Aribia or Japan and have it shipped to Tanzania. All vehicle there have right hand drive. So I would like a contact in which I could start the proress.
Thanks, Tom

My family has had domestic trucks and vans for years,my brother had a chysler van and went through 3 transmissions. My father had a ford truck and the best thing about that was when the plough ran over it and put it out of its misery. Sorry I digress, I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my 2010 Tundra, Platinum crewcab,salsa red with navigation package in Feb. Can not wait.

Haven't driven one but saw a Tandra 4x4 for the first time today. I thought it looked awsome and if Toyota would like to donate one to me to test i would except it no worries.
