One thing I will never understand is boys and their trucks. I guess it goes back to boys and their toys, except the older they get the larger the toy. My little brother has a Toyota Tundra. I was actually shocked he didn’t get an America model. He is your classic country boy. I asked him why, and he said that he had test drove several models and the Tundra had everything he was looking for and was about ten grand less than the competitors. Yep that would have done it for me too.
He bought the truck to pull their boat. And his four wheelers. And his motor cycles. Oh yeah and don’t forget the side by side. Yeah he takes boys and their toys to a whole other level. When you have all of this to haul around plus live out in the country, you need something that is reliable. The Toyota Tundra is just that.
He chose an SR5 CrewMax 5.7 liter V8 FFV from our Toyota Cars dealer near Creve Coeur. I was kinda surprised he did not go with the limited. But he said this was a cost saving choice. I also questioned the crew cab. He and my sister-n-law have no children. They explained this allowed them to haul whatever toy choice of the day and bring their friends and family too. I have to admit this works out great when we visit. Our kids always ride with them. Ah the sound of no whiny children in the car is awesomely serene.
I have to admit Toyota has done an awesome job with styling the new Tundra. It screams masculinity all of its chrome details. I think a lot of people think that since it’s not boxy that the Tundra would come off sort of soft, but the curves actually do the opposite. They enhance the masculinity of this beast of a truck.
