Living in the country requires ownership of a truck. Between hauling hay and horse feed to picking up new lawn furniture and fencing equipment, a truck is essential. Although living in Texas is relatively flat terrain, 4×4 comes in handy after lots of rain and the land is muddy or when hauling stuff to the back pasture which is rocky off-roading. The Toyota Tundra PRO is a beast of a truck that meets all of these needs.
The power of the 5.7 liter engine can be felt behind the wheel. Plus, when I drive it I feel like I’m sitting on top of the world! Did I mention I’m short? Like tiny, short. Climbing up in this truck may provide a challenge for some but I was able to hop right up. If we owned it we would add a step rail. When standing outside of this truck the seat is at my chest. Which honestly, I loved.
Even though the truck was powerful with its 8 cylinders, it was still a somewhat smooth and quiet ride. Much more than I expected from a 4×4 truck. I was impressed.
I wish we would have had the chance to test out the towing package. The Tundra PRO is known for its ability to pull. A friend of ours recently purchased one because of its performance in pulling his fifth wheel camper trailer.
Isn’t the orange color sleek?
The extended cab was very roomy. My son commented on the fact he felt like his middle seat was as large as the two side seats. Since he is the youngest he normally is pushed to the middle when the whole family goes somewhere. When we drove the Toyota Tundra PRO even the teens could comfortably ride in the center seat. There was a lot of leg room as well.
A Toyota Tundra is on my husband’s wish list. It would make the perfect work truck for country living. The gas mileage is low for every day driving, which is to be expected for an engine of that size, but once you drive it you will not want to stop.
Full Disclosure: We were provided the Toyota Tundra PRO to review for one week. All opinions are 100% my own.
Do you own a truck? How do you use it?
