Although Toyota hasn’t made any cosmetic changes to the 2011 Tundra, that didn’t stop the Japanese automaker from making a handful of configuration, equipment and specification changes, including increasing the horsepower of the base V6 engine.

For those seeking a full-size truck without the full-size fuel consumption, Toyota offers a standard 4.0-liter V6 engine. For 2011, this V6 receives dual independent VVT-i technology, which boosts power to 270 – a substantial jump from the previous rating of just 236 horsepower. Toyota has not yet specified if fuel economy will be changed due to the addition of the added power.

The second major addition to the Tundra lineup for 2011 comes in the form of standard Trailer Sway Control on all models. This technology utilizes the existing Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) system to help counteract forces on the truck caused by a swaying trailer while in tow.

Less is more

With volume sales down, Toyota is also making changes to the available configurations in order to help reduce costs. Toyota says they focused on the 28 most popular configurations, which means Tundra will come in two grades (Tundra and Tundra Limited), three cab configurations (Regular, Double Cab and Crew Max), three wheelbases (126.8, 145.7 and 164.6 inches), three bed lengths (78.7, 97.6 and 66.7 inches for Crew Max) and three engines (4.0-liter V6, 4.6-liter V8 and 5.7-liter V8).

Even though there are just two grades, Toyota will offer several packages, such as the SR5, Work Truck Package, and the range-topping Platinum Package for added luxury.

Aside from these few major changes, the 2011 Tundra remains essentially the same as the outgoing 2010 model year truck.
