You might recall that I wrote about the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro CrewMax a while ago. We had taken this truck on a 500-mile road trip towing an RV trailer with 6,500 pounds of weight.
2021 Toyota Tundra
That was the 2020 model. It definitely did the job we needed it to do. The Tundra has a 5.7L, V8 engine and can tow up to a load of 9,200 to10,200 pounds. It has a payload capacity of between 1,560 and 1.730 pounds.
I still like this truck for family trips especially when we drive up into the hill country. It navigates the terrain safely and handles well when hauling our gear. The TRD is a powerful and rugged truck, which I like. Yet, the 5 person cabin is quiet and comfortable. The seats are molded to the human body for maximum comfort and the second row can easily fit 3 of our kids.
What is nice about the 2021 model is all of the technology that has been packed into it. Here are some of the new tech features in the 2021 Tundra:
Integrated Navigation, with an 8-inch display screen, ensures that you won’t get lost.
Toyota Tundra Apple CarPlay
With Apple CarPlay compatibility, the TRD Pro allows you to use your Apple iPhone to access the audio multi-media system to listen to music, make and take calls, and get directions.
With a smartphone connection and the Toyota + Amazon Alexa app you can ask Alexa to listen turn on the news, play music, check the weather, or check into your home smart systems and appliances.
Android Auto Toyota Tundra
Android Auto is available for you to access Google Assistant so you can find restaurants and hotels, play your soundtrack, get traffic alerts, and make calls. All this is possible in the Tundra just by using your voice.
The 4.2-inch Multi-Informational Display is customizable. This is where you are able to access your odometer, trip meter, fuel economy measurement, average traveling speed, and an Integrated Brake Controller. The screen sits directly in front of the driver so he or she doesn’t have to look to the right of the steering column.
What is Available Smart Key System – Tundra
The Available Smart Key System makes it easy to enter the car without ever having to take the keyfob out of your pocket or bag. This is great if you are carrying things, such as a little one or a puppy.
