2015 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Photo Gallery

01_Overview_01A

We're experimenting with some new technology that should be able to allow you to see some of our photos in a larger format, and we thought a good place to start would be with our 2015 4x4 Challenge. Given that we had some great photography of both our 4x4 Challenge competitors in some extremely cool places, we've given you a pretty good selection here to enjoy. To bring up a larger-format version of any of the photos below, just click on the photo and you'll get a better sense of what these pickups can do.

The routing of the exhaust on the Tundra could of been better. Where it is sitting behind the rear wheel will see it get destroyed when climbing over obstacles.

The Tundra seems to be a little better at positioning components out of harms way than the Ram.

The wheel base on both (or any 1/2 ton) is the biggest let down for off roading and will significantly limit what can be done.

I would like to see a short wheelbase version of these. They do seem quite good on sand, but most any AWD CUV will work on sand.

These will make a great vehicle where additional traction is needed on a farm. But, then again a diesel is needed.

FCA have a diesel they could slip straight into the Rebel. Add a short wheel base and fix up that rear axle for off roading and it will probably be much better at off roading than what it currently is.

Like someone mentioned, these will mainly frequent shopping malls and not tracks and trails. So, why not just buy a 2WD and make it look pretty, it would be a lot cheaper.

Snow for one thing, and I mean a lot of snow. That's why I would get a 4wd

What a ugly POS!

There are few great shots!

Damn! That's a good looking rig. Much better than anything the UAW "little 2" and Fiat can pump out. Plus it can actually handle off roading without falling apart like the "domestic" junk.

There's your "sexy" toyota aboc. Now you can hide in the bathroom while you touch yourself. Not too long though, your mom will get suspicious

I have found the seat sits too low with the top of the dashboard too high on the Tundra effecting my driving vision, also the A-Pillar is too wide causing a blind spot.

IMO, any offroad packaged vehicle should have a skid plate to cover the transmission too.

Hearing people complain about how it could be better is getting old. Sorry, but you should realize everything in life has its compromises including vehicles. You can't have five seats and a truck bed without a longer wheelbase. You can't put on an enormous lift and expect casual users to want to buy it. You can't add tens of thousands in extras on a half-ton without becoming unaffordable to many buyers. You can't modify a production vehicle heavily without compromising test results and regulations.

Ford seems to come out with an excuse at the end of each month with supplier, manpower, etc regarding the new aluminium wonder truck.

.................................................and, guess what?..........this month its a shortage of seat frames.

Maybe Nissan can have a supplier excuse for the terrible sales of current Titans.

Hmmmmm.............................................

Mark Fields promised his investors that sales would be back to normal in the fourth quarter so he is having a fire sale for the remainder of the year. The seat shortage is just in case G M out sales them.

Man Fat Albert, you really need to go outside and at least pretend to go off road like you always claim to do. It appears all that you do is post here and search the web for articles about the F150. I bet if we check your cookies 95% of it is searching for "F150" Holy cow! BTW, Who cares. No one here does.................................................................................

Why bring FORD into this thread anyways??? Seems like its about Toyota. Some people just won't stop being ridiculous.

@Big Al - Obsess Much?

I'm not very fan of the Tundra. Does anyone knows that the middle section of its the front bumper is 100% pure plastic?

JUNK!

Thanks BD.
@Big Al from Oz... you're mostly wrong. The rest is unreasonable.

Every truck I've had, had the exhaust there- only hurt it once- when CARELESSLY backing into something. Do you realize how high up those pipes are?
This is the Shortest wheelbase Tundra built- they used to build a reg. cab SB, but it was eliminated, because no one bought it.
Farm? All you need on the farm is a set of MT's on any truck, not this. And no, it doesn't NEED a diesel. The gas V* works great, and our fuel is cheap. Someday, when the GLOBAL economy recovers, oil will go up again and it might make sense then, but how much better is the economy on a VDJ200 than a 5.7 Sequoia- insufficient.
Sure you can get by w/ a 2wd truck, but a high-spec Pickup isn't about getting by.

Skids for the trans and T-case would be nice.

Oh, and CUV's work on sand until their haldex couplings overheat. same goes for shocks made for the street- The resis on the tundra will let you hoon about till your blue in the face.

Big AL complains about anything, it seems as though he doesn't like anything, which is why he is so grumpy all the time, Geez AL, relax, enjoy life alittle

Mr Knowitall - agreed.

Big Al is sounding more and more like a trvll.


Mr Knowitall,
First up, I do consider my comment as quite accurate. These two vehicles are being sold as "off road" orientated vehicles, not just a 4x4 pickup.

So, if this is the case one would assume more thought would be given to the placement of underbody components.

In all seriousness I would not run mudders on a farm, I would run a tyre similar to BF T/A All Terrains. They are aggressive enough for traction and offer better on road performance than a mudder and have a 10 ply construction, which is good when loaded.

Gas is good as you say, because your fuel prices are quite cheap, but most farms run diesel, from gensets to tractors and harvesters. So, the farmer will only need on type of fuel to manage.

Nitro,
Thanks for your concern regarding my well being, it's appreciated.

I do look at the more technical aspects of pickups than many who are quite subjective in their discussion here at PUTC.

So, I will tend to come up with "better" ways to improve deficiencies.

I also look at the companies themselves and how they operate, ie, spin. They all spin, but the biggest let down so far in 2015 is from Ford with the aluminium F-150.

Ford could be more sincere than, this monthly excuse they currently use. Sort of like the chassis shortage, which no longer exists.

So, Ford got a plant up and running producing chassis's in a few weeks or a months to alleviate this shortage?

Now we have seat frames. every month another Ford BS spin story.

What ever happen to the great FE advantage of the aluminium F-150? This somehow became bigger load and tow.

BS.

@ BIg AL, what will it take to stop all the complaints, its hard to even listen to the rants anymore as they dont make sense, and seem to change from day to day, I actually do not know what your thoughts are related to any pick up truck anymore, so maybe you can give a positive about what truck exactly would be one you would be happy with?

Massive skit plate to protect the front susp but no skid plate for the transfer plate? I guess its not a big deal :(

Look at that pretty C frame. They could use this in their advertisement' "Only available C frame."

Nitro,
It's a rarity that I get to thank the same person twice in one day on PUTC.

Thank you again, for your above comment. You are the first one in eons to recognise that I do have a different story on many occasions.

Other's tend to think of my story as a one hit anti Ford person.

Thanks again for your support and concern.

@Nitro - BiGal is sounding more and more like the blogger formally known as 'oxi".

If it ain't global and small and diesel ......... it ain't worth sh!t.


Big Oxi from ooze -
Oh and since when does advertising and reality share much in common? or your posts and reality for that matter?

@LOU, yeah, I wasn't complimenting, but he seemed to think so, I give up....

Nitro - like I've been saying, Big Al is trVll.

All that equipment runs on red, untaxed, non road diesel. That's what's in the tank on the farm. If it has a License plate, you can't (legally) run it. Trucks that get used on "the farm" around here run mud tires, because one wrong turn will make AT tires look like big silly chocolate frosted donuts. A "10 ply" rating refers to bias ply tires (tyres o you), which don't handle well... anywhere.

Mr Knowitall - valid points and once again our friend Big Al is making broad and incorrect generalizations.

If one farms on softer ground then it is common to see those farmers running on the largest possible tires to reduce ground pressure. LGP (low ground pressure) tire'd' or track machines are what are used in softer areas.
I see the exact same thing in the logging industry but due to long cold winters most will not buy LGP equipment and just wait for winter freeze-up to harvest timber in softer ground.

My dad used to be in logging and construction and when working "off-highway" would buy tax exempt fuel. We called it "purple fuel" because the dye made the fuel that colour.
