Leading sales in this hugely competitive pickup segment in America is a difficult proposition. But that is just what this Toyota Tundra Double Cab Limited aims at doing. The Japanese manufacturers have quite a large share of the mid-size segment even though it falls short in the heavy-duty segment with torque-filled peers in RAM, Ford, GMC etc. But it is this mid-size pickup segment where they want to lead and keep leading.
This trim comes in third in the Tundra model line-up followed by Platinum, 1794 Editions and the TRD Pro. And it can be considered as the most value-for-money buy.
There is not much which this model brings on the exteriors differently from other previous models. 20” alloy wheels are immediately noticeable. This is the first trim to come standard with leather trimmings along with heated and power-adjustable dual front seats. Other features which come as standard with this model are as follows:
- Dual Zone Climate Control.
- Entune Premium JBL Audio (7 Speakers instead of 9 in Crew Max variants.)
- Sirius XM Sat-Radio and Sat-Nav.
- Chrome Heated Power Side Mirrors.
- HSEA Glass. (High Solar Energy-Absorbing)

The other engine option is a Flex Fuel Variant which comes with an added compatibility of using E85 Ethanol fuel. Although all other power specs remain the same with this engine variant, there is a slight improvement (4%) on mileage.
The most important thumbs-up with this engine variant is the sheer availability of using this fuel instead of gasoline. Reducing on overhead expenses, this Toyota Tundra Double Cab Limited with FFV provides economy in all respects.
