The Toyota Tundra is a safe vehicle, and it has passed certification tests and standards that prove it can safely tow many objects. Boise Toyota owners who have hitched something onto this reliable vehicle know that they can do so with ease, and that they don’t have to worry about it becoming detached.
Available at our Boise Toyota dealer, the Toyota Tundra has earned a Distinguished Service Award from the Texas Auto Writers Association for its compliance of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) J2807 tow standards. In fact, it is the only full-size truck to implement and follow through with the standard.
Never Worry When Towing
J2807 is a standard that was developed by the SAE and major automotive manufacturers to determine real-world ratings for tow trucks by using the same testing curriculum. Before this, manufacturers had performed their own tests and determined their own ratings without any type of guidelines.
The certification tests the vehicle’s engine, transmission, cooling system, axles and structural rigidity, and the vehicles that pass proudly earn the J2807 certification. The Tundra isn’t the only brand’s vehicle to adopt these standards; every Toyota pick-up truck, SUV and minivan has this certification.
“Toyota owners look to us to develop vehicles that meet the highest safety standards, and our voluntary adoption of J2807 helps us deliver on that promise,” said Mike Sweers, chief engineer of the Toyota Tundra and Tacoma. “Tundra owners can tow confidently knowing that the published tow rating has been verified by the industry’s foremost engineering authority. With Tundra, what you see is what you get.”
The 2014 Toyota Tundra is a quality truck with bold design elements, refined style and beautiful craftsmanship. Like all other Toyota vehicles, the Tundra is known for being reliable, efficient and functional, and you can see and feel it right away. The 2014 year is the first year of major changes for the Tundra since 2007.
