Powerful front brakes
A big part of controlling a trailer is having the ability to stop it. To that end, Tundra has the largest-in-class front brakes equipped with 4-piston brake calipers.
Massive ring gear
To handle the torque of Tundra's available i-FORCE 5.7L V8, our engineers fitted the rear differential with a massive 10.5-inch ring gear. This allows use of an aggressive 4.30 rear axle ratio to help amplify and transfer the 401 lb.-ft. of torque the 5.7L V8 produces to the ground.
i-FORCE 5.7L V8 (346 cu. in.)
381 hp and 401 lb.-ft. of torque, a 6-speed automatic transmission, plus a standard Tow Package with added engine and transmission oil coolers equal heavy-duty towing capability. Add Double Overhead Cams (DOHC), a 32-valve head design and Dual Independent Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i), and you get an i-FORCE drivetrain that can tow a space shuttle.
i-FORCE 4.6L V8 (281 cu. in.)
Tundra's 4.6L V8 is packed with tech, delivering 310 hp and 327 lb.-ft. of torque via a 6-speed automatic transmission. It also benefits from Double Overhead Cams, a 32-valve head design and Dual Independent Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i), so all the power you need is ready when you need it.
Automatic Limited-Slip Differential
Standard on all Tundras, Auto LSD works like a traditional limited-slip differential—with a high-tech twist. Instead of controlling slip mechanically, Auto LSD applies brakes individually to wheels with no traction. And unlike Traction Control, it doesn't cut engine power. This helps give you control and distributes power where it's most effective. Best of all, because the system utilizes the brake system, there are no extra components that add to overall ownership costs.
Active Traction Control
Tundra models equipped with 4WD include an A-TRAC system that optimizes traction across the front and rear axles simultaneously, helping improve grip on low-traction surfaces. This A-TRAC system also allows full use of the 2-speed transfer case, so you always have on-demand access to Tundra’s incredible torque.
