The 2016 Tundra’s power is generated by either a 4.6L V8 that delivers 310 horsepower alongside 327 pound-feet of torque, or a 5.7L V8 that delivers 381 horsepower alongside 401 pound-feet of torque. Either option offers plenty of power, but obviously the less powerful option will deliver a bit more in the way of efficiency, while the more powerful will likely have heightened capabilities.


The 2016 Toyota Tundra is either automatically equipped or can be upgraded with a host of great capability-enhancing features. Things like an integrated trailer brake controller make sure even your heaviest load will stop when it’s supposed to, while trailer-sway control makes sure it stays in the position it’s supposed to. Those are just two of the features available, so it’s only scratching the surface.
