2021 Toyota Tundra
2021 Toyota Tundra at Stampede Toyota in Calgary, Alberta
Looking for a stout, powerful, and capable full-size pickup, with serious off-road capabilities to boot? Well, while North American manufacturers have flooded the market with advertising and pickups that require every available option to perform even the most mundane tasks, the Toyota Tundra has quietly been covering all these bases and more for over twenty years! Learn more about the truck where capability comes standard, the 2021 Toyota Tundra, with Calgary’s very own Stampede Toyota.
The 2021 Toyota Tundra offers classic pickup appeal and utility, thanks to its muscular design. Whether you choose the Double Cab or CrewMax Cab, the 2021 Tundra offers a seriously spacious interior decked out with premium materials; however, it’s the impressive utility of the Tundra that really sets it apart from the competition. An Easy Lower & Lift Tailgate drops down and pops up with ease, while also being removable to handle longer loads. An aggressively-styled grille is flanked by two LED daytime running lights, while chrome bumpers are found both front and back along with front and rear splash guards.
A variety of appearance packages help differentiate the Toyota Tundra trims, while shining a light on their capabilities, like the all new Trail package on the CrewMax SR5 Plus. 18-inch dark grey TRD Off Road Wheels, predator side steps, and black badging set the stage for this off-road ready ride, while the TRD Sport Premium Double Cab adds a hood scoop, 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels, leather seats, a spray-in bed liner, and more!

The 2021 Toyota Tundra does away with the endless engine options offered by the competition, with Toyota engineers deciding to just get it right the first time. A large displacement, 5.7-litre, 32-valve DOHC i-FORCE V8 engine provides heavy duty capability, to the tune of 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. Matched to a 6-speed automatic transmission, the 2021 Tundra offers up to 9,700 lbs of towing capacity, and over 1,200 lbs of payload, making this pickup ready for whatever work you can throw its way. Keeping the ride smooth is a heavy duty double wishbone suspension up front, with mounted gas shocks and multi-leaf springs handling the rear—while 13.9-inch front brake rotors and 4-piston calipers provide the stopping power. From there, the available TRD Off Road package takes the Tundra’s performance into uncharted territory with ease thanks to fuel tank protector plates, Bilstein shock absorbers, all-terrain tires, and more.

Toyota Tundra Model Changes
With a full refresh being rumored for 2022, the current model year doesn’t stray too far from the 2020 Toyota Tundra. However, a number of appearance packages help differentiate the 2021 Tundra, including the Nightshade appearance package consisting of black 20-inch rims, black exterior accents, and supple black leather upholstery. Opt for the brand-new Trail Special Edition, limited to 5,000 units, and enjoy all-weather floor mats, unique, contrast-stitching upholstery, special exterior badging, a body-coloured grille, a lockable in-bed storage unit, and 18-inch wheels on all-terrain tires.
The 2021 Toyota Tundra is as versatile as they come, offering solid performance and capability both on-road and off, along with a spacious interior, striking utilitarian design, and a ton of advanced technology and safety features. While other pickup trucks on the market offer too many trim choices and options, Toyota keeps it simple with the 2021 Tundra by simply offering a truck that does it all.
