An excellent pickup truck, Tundra is comfortable, quiet, handles relatively well and has a super smooth powertrain. It also performs towing and hauling tasks admirably. Good offset-crash-test results are a considerable plus. A crew cab with optional stability control was added to the lineup for the 2004 model year.
