However, the situation was not always so ideal for domestic producers. The Japanese giant and the largest producer in the world, Toyota, not so long ago, brought fear among the American so-called. Big 3 producers, when in 2007 introduced the second generation Tundra, which was bigger, more powerful and more aggressive than the competition. Unfortunately, the celebration did not last long and after only a year, Tundra slowly falling into oblivion, and in 2012, sold 101,621 copies.

In order to understand the situation tundra in the US market, it is necessary to go back to the beginning of 1990, when the aforementioned Big 3 producers remained without competition and with a long tradition of manufacturing pickups. Toyota’s first attempt to oppose the favored Americans was the model T100, which went on sale in 1993. Done in collaboration with legendary Japanese manufacturer of commercial vehicles Hino, T100 was slightly larger than Toyota’s only pickup of this period – Hilux, but still significantly lower than US competitors. T100 is also the only full-size pickup with four-cylinder engine and no V8 option, which is to a large extent lower sales. When Ford started approaching the magic border of one million units sold F-Series pickups in mid-1990, the T100 has not managed to cross the border than 40,000 and quietly shut down after 1998.

Realizing that the Americans will never change and will always be more better, the Japanese giant decided to beat rivals in his own game. Instead of manufacturing in Japan and development by Japanese engineers, Toyota decided to form a special team of Americans and the US state of Texas, known as the heart of the pickup industry. The original plan was related to the extension of the T100 strategy, and since the new model was significantly refresh, Toyota decides to change the name of the T150, modeled on the pickup class. But when Ford threatened with a lawsuit on the grounds that the name is similar to his F-150, the Japanese vehicle manufacturer decides to change the name of the Tundra.

The first generation Tundra debuted in 2000 with Toyota’s first V8 engine (not counting the luxury Lexus), volume of 4.7L with 235 hp. Although still considerably less than US rivals, the new Tundra proved to be good enough to be declared for pickup by the renowned Motor Trend magazine, and in the first year, sales jumps to 120,000. Known Consumer Reports also had only words of praise and declared Tundra for recommended shopping.

2016 Toyota Tundra 2007 open

Tundra begins to actively compete in the American NASCAR Truck Series, where he won the first title of the season in 2006 with driver Ron Hornaday, and to this day, Toyota has won three titles and is the only remaining factory team. However, despite all the praise, the first generation Tundra had certain disadvantages. Although larger than its predecessor, the T100, it was still significantly lower than the American competition, and its most powerful engine is still delivered the only 235 horsepower, and significantly less than their rivals. Early models had certain problems with corrosion, which is still litigation with the owners.

All media were focused on second-generation Tundra at the Motor Show in Chicago in 2006. Larger, more powerful and more modern than its predecessor, Tundra is the first time in their history on paper had the winning combination of which are American rivals could only dream of. Maximum towing five tons (same as Ford F-150), 5.7L V8 engine with 381 hp (the most powerful in the class) and the only pickup in the market with a six-speed automatic transmission, and the largest starting price of $22,390.

It is to say that the Americans were afraid that Toyota will begin to dominate the class pickups as well as other classes of cars, before that. Ford F-150, the pride of the American auto industry, it was still available with the most powerful engine of 300 hp and outdated four-speed automatic transmission. Toyota plans were great. The new plant in Texas was able to annually produces 300,000 vehicles, a plan was still not used to the maximum, with the goal of annual production of 200,000 vehicles. Although the plan had not accomplished by only 3,000 units, it seemed that the last rule of local companies and will in the near future, Toyota will become the top-selling brand in the US market.

2016 Toyota Tundra 2007

However, a series of familiar recall, as well as poorer quality of Tundra (at least for Toyota standards), they began to play a big role, and within just two years, sales fell below 80,000 pieces. Toyota has tried in many ways to regain the trust of customers, but by then the domestic competition caught connection. Tundra otherwise be enrolled in history when on 12 October 2012, withdrew the legendary Space Shuttle Endeavour, he weighs 78 tons, to its final destination.

There are rumors that the third generation of the Tundra should make his debut at this year’s Motor Show in Chicago, which takes place in March. Since 2007, when the current Tundra hit the market, a lot has changed. So now, the Ram 1500 offers best-in-class interior, Ford introduced the first EcoBoost (twin-turbo) V6 engine in its class with up to 570 Nm of torque at just 1700 r/min, and recently introduced a new generation of twins from General Motors – Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. Although Toyota is not financially strong as ever, thanks to the scandal of recalls and adverse weather conditions in Japan, this giant, although “wounded” by no means bad, but at least to be underestimated. Although it is not expected that the third generation could have a revolution like its predecessor, definitely could raise standards and make a class full-size pickups even better and more competitive.
