New London, Connecticut (PressExposure) November 02, 2009 -- Girard Toyota, a leading dealer for new and used Toyota vehicles in New London, gives you an update on the road test for 2010 Toyota Tundra.
Eight-cylinder engines have gotten redundant as of late as auto makers are inching towards vehicles offering better fuel economy and therefore smaller motors that are more powerful. But eight-cylinder engines are still retained in full-size pickups. There is no other engine that has as much hauling capacity as a V-8. Nowadays automakers aim at using the best in technology to squeeze more efficiency out of V-8 engines and transform them into feasible options, capable of competing with the newer engine models. Toyota's all-new 4.6-liter i-Force V-8 in the 2010 Tundra comes in as this option. The new engine is paired with a new six-speed automatic transmission, and offers up to 20 mpg on the highway.
The 2010 Tundra Double Cab 4x4 SR5 was tried out for the road test with the 4.6-liter V-8 and put it through a range of tests suitable for a mid-range half-ton pickup. The 2010 Tundra has some subtle changes as compared to the 2009 model. The three-bar grille has been replaced by a heavier two-bar grille and the tail lamps have been smartened up. The interiors are similar albeit a tad plusher.
The 2010 Toyota Tundra with all-new 4.6-liter V-8 will be available very soon.
