This week I test drive the 2017 Toyota Tundra Platinum. The Toyota Tundra is a larger carryover from the 2016 model. The 2017 Tundra Platinum has 5.7-liter V-8 producing 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. The 4.6-liter engine is standard on the SR and SR5 trims.

The 2017 Toyota Tundra Platinum is a full-size half-ton truck aimed at domestic brand competitors such as the Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado. It is Toyota’s second best-selling truck behind the midsize Tacoma.  The Toyota Tundra is offered in three cab styles, three bed lengths, and two or four-wheel-drive.

The only major changes on the 2017 Toyota Tundra Platinum are changes in paint color availability. My test driving car was a bright deep blue color. Barcelona Red Metallic, Super White, and Black are now available on SR models. The 2017 Toyota Tundra Platinum comes with a standard JBL premium audio system and blind spot warning. It also has LED daytime running lights and foglights.

The 2017 Tundra has received a four-star rating in the Frontal Crash category, and a five-star rating in the Side Crash test.

The interior is animated by the finely-sewed seats. The 2017 Toyota Tundra Platinum will welcome your family with a spacious interior space. My test driving car, the 2017 Toyota CrewMax mode,l includes standard power vertical sliding back window and the available sunroof. The CrewMax Platinum surpasses desires in passing on explorers in the lap of luxury.
