Toyota Tundra Platinum CrewMax 2017 Powerful Design – Toyota Tundra Platinum CrewMax 2017 which means it has four original doors and has the most luxurious trim level. About the only option my truck does not have is a part-time 4WD system. Being a Platinum model, a sports truck with a unique grille is not found on SR trim, SR5, TRD Pro, Limited, or 1792 Edition. It also has a chrome mirror lid, 20-inch alloy wheels, and a corresponding Platinum badge on the front door. Optional, truck wearing board walk beside and bed spray. Everything else is a fair standard for Tundra.
Aesthetically the Toyota Tundra Platinum CrewMax 2017 is a fun truck that attracts young buyers, who in my mind will pull jet skis into the lake or carry surfboards to shore. Regardless of the color, the Toyota Tundra Platinum CrewMax 2017 has a playful attitude about it. Blazing Blue Pearl’s incredible coating, and its towering nature is higher. And maybe my favorite aspect about the Tundra is the rolled-up rear window. Instead of a small sliding window that obstructs the rear visibility, the rear window completely falls into the taxi bulkhead. It makes for a very pleasant open air experience with all five falls and an open moonroof.
Toyota Tundra Platinum CrewMax 2017 is ready for truck duty as well. The bed can be equipped with a spray-on bed liner factory and a moving cargo fastening system. Fully kitted like my tester, the 5.5-foot Tundra bed can carry as many as 1,630 pounds of anything you want. Towing is as easy as a standard two-inch hitch receiver and a harness cable that accepts both four and seven pin connectors. It was then seated, by a rated tester to attract 8,800 pounds. The specs are correct, and a single taxi, long bed, can carry a luxurious trailer.
The exterior of the Toyota Tundra Platinum CrewMax 2017 does have some disadvantages. Firstly, the front hook latch is rather low under the bumper making it difficult to reach. Secondly, the 20 inch wheels look a bit small in relation to Tundra’s large body. The same applies to the tires wall of Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza 275/55-series. Third, the truck did not offer any help to get into the cargo bed. Nevertheless, Toyota Tundra Platinum CrewMax 2017 remains a useful truck despite its age. And subjectively, his appearance stands well with the test of time.
Toyota Tundra Platinum CrewMax 2017 really started showing its age in the cabin. The worst offenders are the center of the stack and its Entune system, the analog measuring group with its small information screens, and the lack of a keyless entry-and-cruise system. Of course, this same Entune system is found in every other Toyota product on the market, but I have complained about software that feels old in the model as well.
The interior of the Toyota Tundra Platinum CrewMax 2017 does have some redeeming qualities. It’s quite spacious, offers leg room, hip space, and a very large headroom for four main seats. The middle seat in the back is also not too compromised. Dashboard control, though dated, easy to use and leather-lined on the passenger side (belonging to Platinum plates) is a nice touch. The center console has a large amount of storage space, and it accommodates the standard-size hanging file folder. The Toyota Tundra Platinum CrewMax 2017 driver seats offer memory functionality. Of course, every other truck in this segment can boast similar attributes, but this is a positive thing. In addition to adequate leg room for rear passengers, bench seats folded in 60/40 split, making way to store larger items. Unfortunately the Tundra floor is not flat. There is an increase of five to six inches on the floor.
Toyota Tundra Platinum CrewMax 2017 supported 5.7 liter iForce V-8. Like my tester, the 5.7-liter is standard in the top trim model, along with every regular cab, long truck. This machine has an all-aluminum construction with dual overhead camshafts that operate four valves per cylinder, with variable timing on both sides of the intake and exhaust. The engine continues to rely on port fuel injection. It produces 381 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 401 pound-feet of torque at 3,600 rpm. The power level is not bad for the middle V-8, falling in the center of the pack in a 5.3 liter GM mixture, 5.7 liter Ram, and Ford’s 5.0 liter. In fact, only the Ram’s V-8 that master it, provides 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. The iForce Achilles heel is the fuel economy. EPA estimates my 2WD tester at 13 mpg city, 18 mpg highway, and 15 mpg combined. It was very close.
