Toyota Tundra 2001

Toyota Tundra 2001: The Expanse was introduced for 2000 as the first full-size Japanese pick-up, as well as it rollovers for 2001 with very little adjustment. The Expanse changed the midsize T100 in Toyota's lineup and challenges the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado, Dodge Ram and also the GMC Sierra, the full-size residential pick-ups.

Developed at a brand-new Toyota plant in southern Indiana, the Tundra also is the initial pick-up from a Japanese manufacturer to offer a V-8 engine. The Tundra's layout is the structure for the business's full-size sport utility vehicle, the Sequoia, generated at the exact same plant.

The Expanse comes as a routine taxi with an 8-foot freight bed and also as a prolonged taxi (called Accessibility Taxi) with a 6.5-foot bed. The Accessibility Cab has rear-hinged back doors on both sides that could not be opened until the front doors are opened. The Expanse, nevertheless, has outside deals with for the back doors rather than in the doorjamb.

Both body designs have a 128-inch wheelbase and a general size of 217 inches. By comparison, the Ford F-150 routine taxi with an 8-foot bed and also the F-150 Super Taxi with a 6.5-foot bed are both 224 inches long.

The Tundra's maximum payload is 2,000 pounds, while the F-150's optimum is 3,180 extra pounds.


An eye-catching, properly designed control panel areas all controls where they are simple to see as well as get to in the Expanse, and front-seat passengers obtain comfortable, spacious accommodations. However the three-place rear seat on the Access Taxi is too small for adults unless the front seats are pressed well onward. The rear seat is as level as a board, with a short, tough pillow as well as back-rest. The rear padding is split, as well as both halves quickly fold up to produce more storage space.

Normal taxicabs as well as Access Taxicabs come with either two bucket seats or a front bench seat that holds 3. Natural leather furniture is optional on the top-line Limited version.

Under the Hood

A 190-horsepower 3.4-liter V-6 engine is standard and groups with either a five-speed handbook or four-speed automatic transmission. A 245-hp 4.7-liter V-8 is optional and comes only with the automated.

The Expanse's four-wheel-drive system allows altering in or from 4WD High up on the relocation through dashboard controls. Four-wheel antilock brakes are optional across the board.

Driving Perceptions

The Tundra supplies fewer options in sizes as well as engines compared to its domestic competitors, and also it falls short in haul as well as towing capacity. However with the V-8, this is maybe the best, most fine-tuned pickup available. Whatever fits as well as runs with accuracy, and also the Expanse feels like it was made by Lexus-- Toyota's high-end department.
