2010 Toyota Tundra Double Cab

The Toyota Tundra is a tough little vehicle. Built for off-road driving, it’s hard to beat on toughness, handling and price. The 2010 Tundra Double Cab 4X4 Limited 5.7L V8 FFV is the top of the line trim on this model and is the perfect illustration of the type of vehicle true pick up lovers will vow to marry.

To begin with, the 5.7L engine puts out 381 horsepower at 5600 RPM and comes packed with dual independent Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i). Its torque is a whopping 401 pound per square feet. The drivetrain is a 6-speed electronically controlled transmission with intelligence with sequential shift mode and uphill/downhill shift logic. It also comes equipped with 4WDemand system with electronically controlled 2-speed transfer case.

Its front suspension is an independent coil-spring high-mounted double-wishbone with stabilizer bar and low-pressure nitrogen gas shocks. In the rear, a live axle with trapezoidal multi-leaf suspension and staggered outboard mounted low-pressure nitrogen gas shocks. All this on a rack and pinion hydraulic power steering mount.

It comes equipped with the standard cold weather package and tow package. Optionally, you can order the memory package and the TRD Off-Road Package.

If you’re wondering about fuel efficiency, the 2010 Toyota Tundra Double Cab 4X4 Limited 5.7L V8 FFV only gets 13 mpg in the city and 17 on the highway. But, again, it’s built for off-road driving. If you want a little better gas mileage then you’ll need to drop down to the 4.6L engine trims.

The 2010 Toyota Tundra Double Cab starts at MSRP $23,455 and that’s a beautiful price considering the sporty toughness of this little monster.
