The Pickup for Your Summer Adventures
With snow in the rear-view, many Nelson locals are booking up their weekends with all manner of outdoor activities. Whether you’re planning on mountain biking at Red Mountain or paddleboarding in Cranbrook, the Toyota Tundra is the truck that keeps the summer fun going with ample space for gear, mileage that’s easy on the wallet and all the off-roading capabilities you need to get to the action.
Pack up this full-sized pickup and head to the Selkirk Mountains for a two-week camping trip or jut out to our backyard and spend your days at Whitewater knowing you’ve got a truck you can rely on through any mountain pass. What makes the Toyota Tundra so powerful? Maybe it’s because it relies on an 8-cylinder engine available in either 4.6L or 5.7L configurations. Or maybe it’s the 381 hp/401 pounds per foot of torque that gets pumped out of the 32-valve DOHC powerplant. After ripping around the backcountry, you can let us know which one you think it is.
Not only does the Toyota Tundra prove itself over and over again when it comes to power and reliability, but it’s easy to look at, too. With 8 different models to choose from and all manner of trim packages available for add-on, the Tundra gives you a completely customized driving experience.
For the truck owner that spends countless dollars and hours modding out their pickup to get the all-black effect, save yourself the hassle with the SX package, new this year. Your Tundra will come with a blacked-out grille, black 18” alloy wheels, minimal badging and interior extras. If western style is what you dig, the 1794 Edition boasts a cabin wrapped in buckskin leather, special badging, a moonroof and chrome absolutely everywhere.
But for the BC adventure warrior who’s been waiting for a pickup that can handle the totally untamed terrain of the Kootenays, it’s the TRD Pro that’s calling your name. Back for 2019, this top-of-the-line Tundra was built to take on anything and look great doing it. The TRD features 2.5'' FOX Coil-Over Performance Shocks in the front and Remote Reservoir Internal Bypass Shocks in the back, a TRD Performance Exhaust with a black chrome tip, 18” forged-aluminum black wheels and a TRD-stamped skid plate. A “TOYOTA” heritage grille graces the front while the interior gets the black leather treatment, giving this truck a look that stands out on the road.
