Pickups have been a total rage in the States, and why not be, they are the epitome of style, performance, and utility, bundled together in a robust package. The American companies have been a Picasso in the art of manufacturing pickups. From RAM to GMC to Ford to Chevrolet, every American-bred out there is trying the hardest to leave a lasting mark in the pickup segment. As a matter of fact, pickups in America have such a huge following that even Toyota wanted to have a piece of that cake, and what they have to offer is their dependable and robust Tundra. 

It was definite that the Japanese will soon enough join this pickup wagon, and they did, from Nissan to Toyota to Honda, the Japanese auto-marquees are not too behind in this rat-race of manufacturing the best pickup either. However, the question remains, who really started this cult for the Japanese invaders to manufacture a true American-flavored pickup? Well, it was Toyota, with its pickup truck Tundra, which they first launched in 1999. Yes, you read it right, Tundra was the first-ever full-size pickup to be manufactured in North America, by a Japanese auto-maker. 

Tundra has bagged several laurels ever since its launch, though it has become old, it has not toothless yet. The Toyota Tundra is surely a veteran in the pickup league and for the Japanese players, it’s the god, that formed their way to exist. The Toyota Tundra is still considered to be a strong contender for an ideal pickup truck. The outgoing Tundra represents the second-gen of this pickup and houses a mighty 5.7L V8 engine, that holds a lot of grunts. The Toyota Tundra possesses 310 ponies and 327 lb.-ft. of torque.
