Exciting news rolled onto our lot this month. The Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Double Cab 4x4 Limited Edition arrived with all eyes on its beaming Super White yet tough-as-nails surface. The Tundra as is has established itself as the best pull size pickup on the market. It carries the titles of the best towing pickup, the best family pickup, and was even tough enough to be driven by the Terminator. The TRD Pro model extends upon this dominating legacy.
For those that don't know, the TRD stands for Toyota Racing Development (TRD). Toyota's racing division is known for applying what it learns out on the field, and applies it to existing Toyota trucks - making them even faster, tougher, stronger, and better. For the Tundra TRD Pro, Toyota engineers (racers themselves) tested beyond the boundaries of the extreme. The result is a truck built to not just last, but excel in all conditions, no matter the limits you push it to.
Why did this beast make such a splash after arriving in Greater Vancouver? Because simply put, the Tundra TRD Pro is made for the hard-driving residents of this region and all that surrounds it. Let's dig deeper into why this monster of a truck is destined for your driveway.
5 Reasons Why the Toyota Tundra Pro Double Cab 4x4 Limited Edition is Made for Tough Vancouver Drivers
1. You Don't Live by the 9 to 5 Rule, Neither Does the Tundra TRD Pro
We're guessing that if you found this article you're not sitting in some stuffy cubicle within yet another office complex in the financial district. For you, the thought of spilling coffee on your tie while standing over a photocopier is akin to laying in a grave. Toyota gets that. The Tundra TRD Pro bucks the 9 to 5 lifestyle and meets the demands of those of you out there who work hard while out there on the road without regard for the time of day. With i-FORCE 5.7L V8 and a TRD-tuned dual exhaust built from 304 stainless steel (high corrosion resistance) the system has been engineered to ramp up low to mid-range torque and overall power output. This vehicle has enough power to get the job done so that you get your's done. The Limited Edition's double cab offers full-size front doors, two forward-hinged rear doors, and a standard bench seat with a fold-down center console. Factor in a 6.5 or 8.1 ft bed length and you know you can fit your entire crew and all of their equipment, machinery, and gear in with ease. Living and working in an industrial-rich region such as the Lower Mainland means that you need a truck to tackle your day to day, no matter what that looks like. The 2016 Tundra TRD Pro Limited Edition has no limits in accomplishing this goal.
2. You Live in the Action Sports Capital of Canada
Whether you are in Hell's Gate, or some other extreme terrain, this truck does it all. Named as one of the top vehicles for the action sports enthusiast, the Tundra TRD Pro is built for residents of the action sports capital of the country. Whether you surf off of the rugged BC coast, snowboard off of the peak of Whistler Blackcomb, or base-jump off of some unnamed cliff this pickup will get you there. TRD-tuned springs are matched up-front with massive 2.5-inch remote-reservoir Bilstein® shocks (providing a 2-inch lift) while the back pairs Bilstein® shocks to our TRD Pro's off-road leaf spring. The vehicle's suspension maximizes wheel travel and features advanced 3-stage compression dampening to ease the impact of rough trails. The truck has a heavy-duty ¼-inch aluminum skid plate which protects its undercarriage from all of the rocks and debris found en-route to your extreme destination. If your action adventures include the use of heavy duty recreational equipment there Tundra TRD Pro Double Cab is for you too, with a 9,800 lb towing capacity that can manage jet-skis, snowmobiles, or a trailer full of gear.
3. You're Surrounded by Nature's Bounty
The Lower Mainland is rich with natural beauty that begs to be explored. The Tundra TRD-Pro promises to take you there, everywhere. In addition to the suspension, skid plate, and towing capacity noted above, the truck is exclusively outfitted with 18-inch alloy wheels that are wrapped in all-terrain Off-Road Package tires. The TRD-Pro can claw its way up any BC trail or mountain. And you don't have to worry about going too far out of bounds when using your AVN Premium Navigation because the upgraded 38-gallon fuel tank offers you an extended exploring range.
4. You Know that Image Still Matters
Vancouver is an image conscious city and Toyota knows that you take pride in yours. Your truck is an extension of this. For all of the tough talk the Tundra TRD Pro is a very attractive road (and off-road) warrior. The 2016's front fascia, black-out grille, fog lights, and special badging all help the Tundra TRD Pro Limited Edition stand out wherever you take it. The inside of the truck is also eye-catching, with black leather seats embroidered in unique red contrast stitching and a proud TRD Pro logo. The interior look is stamped further with a branded shift knob and carpet floor mats.
5. You Appreciate Fuel Efficiency in a High-Performance Pickup
Living in the most expensive city in the country you appreciate good value wherever you can find it. While you refuse to sacrifice any of the top four lifestyle attributes above, you'll be happy to know that fuel efficiency (13 mpg city/17 mpg hwy) for the Tundra TRD Pro is quite optimal for such a high-performance pickup of its stature.
