Toyota is considered as the largest car producer in the world, so it isn’t wonder that there are various types of vehicles in offer. Trucks always had a special place in Toyota’s lineup. One of those models is called Tundra. It is the biggest truck in company’s offer. It came originally in 1999 and although it was designed primarily for North American market, it is present in almost every place in the world. Current model is in its second generation, and it look like we won’t see a major redesign in next few years. However, 2017 Toyota Tundra will come with some novelties. While exterior and interior will remain unchanged, big novelties will be seen under the hood.
