2012 Toyota Tundra Regular Cab Retail Price Goes Up
Toyota recently announced an increase in the base price of its regular cab 2012 Tundra. The increase, which could be as much as $720, is rather significant and quite uncommon for a single year rise.
Increasing the price of the company’s smallest-cab model comes as a result of several improvements Toyota has made in the level of content being offered for the new year. The regular cab Tundra now boasts the following features as standard:
- 18-inch styled steel wheels
- Heavy duty battery (a feature that is not available on the V6)
- Stronger starter
- Windshield wiper de-icers
- Daytime running lights
- Mudguards in the front and rear of the vehicle
- Heated power outside mirrors
After the raise in prices, the base manufacturer’s suggested retail prices (MSRP) will range from $24,435 and $29,960 for the 4.0 liter V6 with the five-speed automatic and the long-bed 5.7 liter V8 with six speed automatic, respectively. Neither of the prices listed include destination. These values represent an increase ranging from 2.4 to 3 percent.
Since the beginning of the year, Toyota has seen a 25 percent decrease in Tundra production in comparison to the same time-frame in 2010. Despite this, the company’s full-sized pick-up truck division seems to be continuing its steady rise in overall sales volume, and is even predicted to have an outstanding year.
