Toyota Tundra 2017 Lifted Price
The grille was updated in 2002 (for the 2003 model year), along with a new Stepside bed available on Access Cab models. The Tundra Double Cab, also added to the lineup in 2004, was a crew cab with four rear-opening doors, with interior and exterior details copied from the Toyota Sequoia. Its bed was nearly 5 inches (130 mm) longer than the competing Honda Ridgeline or Ford F-150. It is also 13 inches (330 mm) longer, 3 inches (76 mm) taller, and 4 inches (100 mm) wider than the Regular and Access Cab versions, with a 12 inches (300 mm) longer wheelbase. A new engine was introduced in 2005: a 4. 0-liter V6 rated at 236 hp (176 kW; 239 PS) and 266 lb⋅ft (361 N⋅m) of torque, and the existing 4. 7-liter V8 was updated with Toyota's VVT-i variable valve timing technology and was rated at 282 hp (210 kW; 286 PS) and 325 lb⋅ft (441 N⋅m) of torque while the 2006 versions were rerated at 271 hp (202 kW; 275 PS) and 313 lb⋅ft (424 N⋅m) of torque. The 5-speed manual gave way to a 6-speed manual, and a 5-speed automatic replaced the 4-speed. With a towing capacity of 6,900 lb (3,130 kg) on the Double Cab and 7,100 lb (3,221 kg) on Access Cab and Regular Cab models with a V8 engine, the Tundra still did not have enough power to compete with the heavier-duty offerings of the Big Three and Nissan.
