A few weeks ago, I had two unique opportunities with a 2015 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Double Cab. First, was a 1,047 mile trip through the Colorado mountains and back to move my daughter to my home. The second was riding in the back to Tabernash, Colorado from Pine Bluffs, Wyoming and back for a media driving event. Here are my experiences.
The inevitable comparison of the Ford Raptor to any straight-from-the-factory off-road truck dominates many discussions, yet the latest stock off-road models – Ram Rebel and Toyota Tundra TRD Pro – are not arguably, “so-called” Raptor fighters. Instead, they are ideally suited to be compared to each other. Here is how they stack up in my opinion.
After driving the 2015 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro around for a week, I came across several surprises. Here are my top 5.
Just a few weeks ago, we had a 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali. The all-black truck had a striking image, a powerful 6.2L V8 engine, 8-speed transmission and had enough posh leather to rival a Burberry store in NYC. While this truck sure looks great, how does it compare to the 2015 Toyota Tundra Platinum? It all comes down to preferences.
Quite often, you will hear us and others talk about the quality, durability and reliability (QDR) of Toyota products and how that is their big advantage. While it is often hard to measure these things, a Toyota certified sales representative puts both trucks under the microscope.
