Mark Says Yes!


Toyota Tundra Information Durham NC

Truck buyers know to come to Mark Jacobson Toyota for all their truck needs. We offer a large selection of new, perowned and Certified trucks and we have a separate indoor truck showroom that is staffed by our resident truck experts! We are here to help you find the prefect new truck that not only fits your budget but your hauling and off-road needs as well!
With more than 4 dozen possible configurations and a towing capacity of up to 10,500lbs the 2017 Tundra doesn't do anything in a small way. The Tundra is powered by a V8-exlusive engine lineup and is offered in three cab sizes: two-door Regular Cab, four-door double cab and the supersized four-door CrewMax. Within those configurations are six model grades:
  • the high-value, hard working SR
  • volume leading SR5
  • comfort focused Limited
  • the luxurious Platinum'
  • the unique 1794 Edition
  • the off-road astute TRD Pro


As the name suggests, the CrewMax prioritizes room for people. Its longer cab, larger rear doors and shorter 5.5-fooot bed make for a limo-link 42.3 inches of rear seat legroom. Another bonus is all CrewMax models come standard with a power vertical sliding rear window.

Throw it in the Back
All Tundra beds are 22.2 inches deep and when properly equipped, offer a payload capacity of up to 2,080 pounds. The lockable easy-lower-and-lift tailgate lowers slowly with no slam and can easily be removed. Carrying larger items is made easy with the available deck rail system and spray in bedliner.

Hauling Power
The Tundra can be powered by one of two available i-Force V8 engines. The standard 4.6-liter i-Force V8 produces 310 horsepower and its 5.7-liter sibling pumps out 381 horsepower. Both engines utilize an aluminum cylinder block, double overhead-cam heads with four valves per cylinder, dual independent variable timing with intelligence and an acoustic control inductions system for a broad torque curve All Tundra models are equipped with a 6-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission.

Traction Galore
On Tundra 2wd models, the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) system integrates traction control that enhances on or off-road grip. The system also incorporates Automatic Limited-Slip Differential (Auto LSD), which provides better performance in deep sand or mud and on mixed-friction surfaces because it doesn't restrict engine power. Compared to a conventional mechanical limited slip differential, the Auto-LSD system is often more responsive and has better wear characteristics, since it utilizes the vehicles brakes to limit wheelspin.

Tundra 4x4 models use the on-demand, electronically controlled 4WDemand part-time 4WD system featuring a six-pinion planetary reduction gear set to provide 4x2, 4x4 Hi, and 4x4 Lo ranges. The driver selects the drive mode using a dial located on the dash. With 4wDemand, Active Traction Control (A-TRAC) operates like Auto-LSD, allowing full, unrestricted engine output, transferring power to the wheel with the most traction on both the front and rear axles.

Built to Tow
Towing claims can vary in the pickup truck realm Yet one towing standard certification - called the SAE  J2807 - stands out among the rest. The Toyota Tundra was the first to adopt this standard in 2011. With its standard Tow Hitch Receiver (new for 2017) and Tow Package (available on all grades), the 5.7-liter V8 Tundra offers a maximum certified tow capacity of up to 10,500 pounds (4x2 Regular Cab).

When equipped, the Tundra uses a one-piece towing receiver that utilizes 12 high-strength bolts, integrating it into the frame. The 5.7-liter's Tow Package upgrades Tundra's cooling and electrical systems as well. Integrated engine and transmission oil coolers, in conjunction with an added heavy-duty battery and alternator, help the powertrain handle the strenuous demands of towing under a full load. The Tow Package's selectable TOW/HAUL mode adjusts throttle sensitivity and transmission shift control, favoring and holding lower gears when accelerating or decelerating to help enhance control and safety.

A function of Vehicle Stability Control, Trailer Sway Control can counteract handling forces that can cause trailer sway to make towing safe. The Tundra also comes with an integrated Trailer Brake Contoller, and the driver can view its status on the multi-information display screen. All Tundra models come standard with a backup camera.

Ride in Style

With all of its inherent toughness, the Tundra treats its occupants with the sort of smooth ride and quite cabin that is most often associated with luxury sedans, not full-sized pickup trucks. Soft-touch surfaces, high granulated paint on the center cluster and unique seat stitching enhance interior quality and durability. Gauges are grouped in a clear, easy-to-see design, and there's a center-mounted multi-information display screen. The dash's large knobs can be operated while wearing gloves, and the console offers multiple storage areas for personal items and electronics.

The Limited grade adds leather-trimmed surfaces and wood-style interior trim. Amenities include dual zone air conditioning, a 10-way power driver seat and new for 2017, 4-2ay power passenger seat and available power tilt/slide moonroof with sliding sunshade (Crewmax only). The exterior wears chrome door handles and side mirrors, 20-inch alloy wheels and a versatile deck rail system.

Off-Road Connisseur
Taking full advantage of the Tundra's rugged construction and highly proficient traction control technologies is the most off-road-astute grade, TRD Pro. The TRD Pro, available in Double Cab and Crew Max models, conveys its love for dirt-filled adventure with a unique front grille having a heritage-inspired "TOYOTA" logo, TRD Pro bed panel stamping, aluminum skid plate, matte black badges, and black headlight bezels.
The Tundra TRD Pro is ready for any terrain with a complete TRD suspension upgrade that raises the front of the vehicle two inches for a level ride height and extends wheel travel at all four corners. Larger diameter TRD-tuned Bilstein High-Performance shocks feature 3-stage compression dampening, internal hydraulic bump stops, and piggyback external reservoirs. Eighteen-inch TRD black alloy wheels are wrapped in all-terrain tires.

The Tundra TRD Pro is powered by Toyota's venerated i-Force 5.7-liter V8, which has TRD's growling dual exhaust and more than 400 ft.-lb. of torque. For 2017, this extra-bold Tundra is available in Cement (new for 2017), Barcelona Red Metallic, and Super White. Inside, the black leather-trimmed seating features red stitching and TRD Pro embroidered logos.
American Roots
The current-generation Toyota Tundra was primarily designed by Toyota's Calty Design Research centers in Newport Beach, Calif., and Ann Arbor, Mich., with some engineering by Toyota Technical Center in Ann Arbor, Mich., and is assembled exclusively at Toyota Motor Manufacturing in San Antonio, Tex. Its V8 engines are assembled at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Alabama, Inc., and transmissions for the 5.7-liter V8 are manufactured in North Carolina.
