There are three cab options to choose from: two-door with one row of seats – Regular Cab, with two rows and four doors – Double Cab, and with increased legroom for rear passengers – CrewMax. The cargo platform is available in three versions: the shortest – 1.68 m (it is the only one for CrewMax), and the maximum – 2.47 m. It should be noted that with the largest cargo platform, the total length of the Double Cab is 6.28 m, so put such an elephant in a standard parking lot. the place is very difficult. In addition, there are three types of interior trim, from simple to chic. The number of seats, depending on the cabin and configuration, varies from three to six.

There are also three engines: the base V6 4.0 l (236 hp), known from the old Tundra and other models of the company. Next up are the two i-Force V8s: 4.7 L (231 HP), also found on the first generation of the model, and the latest 5.7 L (381 HP), with a downright excavator torque of 544 Nm. It uses an electronically controlled dual variable valve timing system (Dual VVT-i), where the intake and exhaust valves are driven by separate camshafts. This modern motor, despite its large volume and high power, meets the stringent requirements of modern environmental standards and is economical in most operating modes.
