Tundra Capstone – A Fuel-Efficient Powerhouse


During an incredible week spent in the Toyota Tundra Hybrid 4×4 Capstone CrewMax, I was thoroughly impressed by its performance and fuel efficiency.

The Toyota Tundra is a highly fuel-efficient vehicle, averaging 21.8 miles per gallon in combined city and highway driving. I had the opportunity to drive it through the bustling streets of Washington DC during the New Year celebrations, and later embarked on a road trip westward, from I-270 to I-70 and Western Maryland, passing through Hagerstown to I-81 and Northeastern West Virginia, finally reaching I-70 I-76, where we completed our move to our new apartment in Pittsburgh. This journey was made possible by the Tundra’s remarkable fuel efficiency.

One of the standout features of the Tundra is its luxurious appointments and attention to detail. The vehicle boasts a panoramic roof that allows you to enjoy the skies as you drive. The styling is impeccable, with strong visual cues that make it visually appealing. I was particularly fond of the driver assistance packages, which provided an added layer of convenience and safety.

The Tundra also offers modern technology features, such as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing seamless integration of your smartphone. The sound system in the Tundra is truly remarkable, delivering exceptional audio quality. I was able to enjoy my favorite music and even listen to the new songs we produced, which will be released as part of an update to our game. The album, titled “Dah-Varsity: Origins of Superhero Rap,” featured an anti-bullying PSA and a captivating remix that truly touched my soul. It brought a whole new level of excitement to my driving experience, whether I was cruising on the highway or navigating the city streets.

Underneath the hood, the Tundra houses a powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine with a combined turbo, delivering an impressive 435 horsepower and 437 pound-feet of torque. This engine is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, offering smooth and efficient performance. The Tundra Hybrid’s EPA rating of 22 miles per gallon on the highway is quite remarkable for a pickup truck. The hybrid technology not only enhances fuel efficiency but also provides the necessary functionality, capability, and power required for a wide range of tasks. It offers ample space to pack all our belongings, including suitcases and other items for our move.

In summary, the Toyota Tundra Hybrid 4×4 Capstone CrewMax is a technological marvel that combines luxury, fuel efficiency, and powerful performance. It offers an exceptional driving experience with its comfortable and feature-rich interior, impressive audio system, and outstanding fuel economy. Whether you’re embarking on a road trip or tackling everyday tasks, the Toyota Tundra proves to be a reliable and versatile companion.

The Toyota Tundra starts at a base price of $73,530, and the model I tested came equipped with an adjustable suspension, priced at $77,339. For more information, visit www.Toyota.com.
