April 11th, 2016 by

If you like choices and are looking for a truck that is as adaptable as you are, then a Toyota of Goldsboro has exactly what you are looking for. The latest Toyota Tundra boasts more than 15 possible configurations in six trim levels that can tow all of your favorite summer toys this season—even if that boat or box trailer tips the scales at more than 10,000 pounds.

Your local Goldsboro Toyota dealership has the perfect pickup to take the difficulty out of pulling your precious cargo down the road or highway. With the 2016 Toyota Tundra, power is available in either 4.6-liter or 5.7-liter V8 forms.

2016 Toyota Tundra
The 2016 Toyota Tundra offers multiple configurations of powerful V8 engines, bed lengths and towing capacity to accommodate your big boy toys.

No matter how you choose, a 6-speed automatic transmission with available transmission and oil coolers as part of a tow package gives you a powerful truck with the muscle to pull just about anything you can park in the driveway. Choose a 5.8-liter engine with the aforementioned towing package, and the Tundra can pull a Space Shuttle. No kidding…a Tundra pulled the Space Shuttle Endeavour across an Interstate overpass in California in 2012!

Of course, there’s more to towing than just getting all of that weight and wind-resistance moving. A tow vehicle has to stop that triple-axle boat trailer or 30’ box. That’s why Toyota equips the 2016 Tundra with 13.9-inch front rotors clamped by four-piston calipers. Rear stopping force comes from 13.6-inch discs. Whether a stop is planned or reactionary, the class-leading braking power of a Toyota Tundra from Goldsboro Toyota dealers keeps people and cargo safely in control.

Speaking of safety, the Tundra has some of the most advanced towing safety features available in any truck equipped to tow heavy loads. The Auto Limited-Slip Differential was inspired by traditional limited slip systems, but Toyota’s automatic version applies braking force to the wheels independently to maintain traction instead of limiting engine power.

The Active Traction Control (A-TRAC) also utilizes the Tundra’s powerful and advanced braking system to maintain all-wheel traction instead of cutting the throttle. That means power is always there when needed while the tires keep gripping the road. This is one Toyota truck that is built for the long-haul, no matter what’s hitched to the 12-bolt receiver.

Toyota established itself as an authority in building towing vehicles when it brought its entire line of trucks and SUVs into compliance with SAE’s strict J2807 towing standard in 2010. Toyota was the first manufacturer in its industry to take this bold step as a leading builder of towing vehicles.

So visit Toyota of Goldsboro today and test drive one of these beasts with unmatched power and accommodation. Come test drive a Toyota Tundra and unlock your power potential — and bring your big boy toys on the camping trip this weekend.
