2012 Toyota Tundra Trims

Limited
CrewMax 5.7L
Avg. Price: $35,842

Things start getting fancy with the 2012 Toyota Tundra Limited trims, and that means features like front and rear obstacle-detection systems, heated leather bucket seats and an upgraded JBL 6-CD stereo with satellite radio. Pretty posh for a pickup with a 5.7-liter V8 under the hood. CrewMax means you get rear-hinged doors in the back, and with the Limited trim you’ll get 10-way power for the driver and 4-way for the passenger. The steering wheel tilts and telescopes and gets audio controls as well. Dual-zone climate controls are automatic, and the power package is upgraded here with heated power mirrors with integrated signals. Bluetooth and auxiliary USB input are added as well, and a universal garage door opener means you’ll never have to brave the cold, at least at your own home. There’s a power rear window and a wiper deicer, as well as fog lights and automatic mirrors. Fog lights sit below a color-keyed front bumper and rear privacy glass keeps things discreet. Safety is handled via a limited-slip differential, traction, stability and trailer-sway control, as well as 4-wheel antilock discs and 8 standard airbags.

Avg. Price: $40,201

With 4WD and all the trimmings, the 2012 Toyota Tundra Limited CrewMax 5.7L 4WD has luxury and utility – allowing you to drive over stuff in style. As the 2-speed transfer case works hard to pull from the front tow hooks or the trailer hitch, you’ll be sitting on a heated leather bucket seat with 10-way power, while your passenger enjoys 4-way power mobility. A JBL sound system has a 6-CD changer, MP3 playback, Bluetooth and satellite radio, as well as a USB port, and the power package includes heated power mirrors with integrated signals. A tilt and telescoping steering wheel has audio controls, and front and rear obstacle detection systems keep you from running over unwanted obstructions. Fog lights sit below a color-keyed front bumper, as opposed to the chrome unit on lesser Tundras. Dual-zone automatic climate controls make sure everyone is comfortable, and a limited-slip differential makes sure everyone is safe with the help of traction, stability and trailer-sway controls. There are 8 airbags standard for every Tundra, including front knee, as well as 4-wheel antilock discs.

Avg. Price: $38,793

Choose your pump when you pull up, because the 2012 Toyota Tundra Limited CrewMax 5.7L FFV 4WD gets Flex-Fuel capability. 4WD drive means a 2-speed transfer case and front tow hooks in addition to the trailer hitch and sway control, but the 5.7-liter V8 and 6-speed automatic gets some managers as well in the form of traction and stability control. Because it’s the Limited trim, that means fancy features like front and rear obstacle detection systems and heated leather bucket seats with 10- and 4-way power for the driver and passenger, respectively. The sound system is upgraded to a 6-CD JBL unit here, with standard Bluetooth and USB input, and satellite radio is included as well with auxiliary audio controls on the tilt and telescoping steering wheel. Dual-zone automatic climate controls keep people cozy when the weather gets bad enough to utilize features like heated power mirrors with integrated signals, wiper deicers and fog lights. The CrewMax gets rear-hinged second-row doors and rear privacy glass, and 4-wheel antilock brakes bring things to a halt in a hurry. Final safety features include 8 standard airbags including front-knee.

Double Cab 5.7L
Avg. Price: $35,732

There’s only one option you don’t get with the 2012 Toyota Tundra Limited Double Cab 5.7L trim, and that’s 4WD. Don’t expect efficiency here just because you’re working only with the rear wheels, as the 5.7-liter V8 can still suck at the pump, despite being fitted to a 6-speed automatic. But even with RWD, the Tundra will still display manners on the road thanks to a limited-slip differential and traction and stability control. If you attach something to the rear hitch, you’ll even get trailer-sway control to keep things in check. With heated leather bucket seats with 10- and 4-way power for driver and passenger, comfort shouldn’t be an issue, but dual-zone automatic climate controls are on-hand and standard. The JBL sound system has a 6-CD changer, as well as USB and Bluetooth, and auxiliary controls come on the tilt and telescoping steering wheel. The power package includes remote-keyless entry, power door locks, power windows and heated power mirrors with integrated signals, and a wiper deicer pairs with fog lights to make sure the view is always clear. 18-inch wheels house 4-wheel antilock discs, and front and rear obstacle detection systems cover everything you can’t see, but if things go really bad, you can always rely on 8 standard airbags to keep you safe.

With the power and the pugnacity of a 5.7-liter V8 connected to a 4-wheel drivetrain through a 2-speed transfer case, the 2012 Toyota Tundra Limited Double Cab could be easily dismissed as a boorish brute, unable to serve the subtleties expected from a top-tier trim. Sure it’s still a pickup, but it’s a pickup with options like heated power leather bucket seats, front and rear obstacle detection systems, dual-zone automatic climate controls and a 6-CD JBL stereo. You’d expect to get front tow hooks, a trailer hitch and a limited-slip differential, but not so much the heated power mirrors with integrated signals, the Bluetooth, satellite radio and USB input. But once you see those options, perhaps the tilt and telescoping steering wheel with auxiliary controls won’t be so much of a surprise, and you won’t balk at the power rear window, the wiper deicer and the fog lights. Of course, these are useful features, not just for show and glitz. They might even belong in a pickup now that we sit in the second decade of this frightening new century. A pickup truck with stability and traction control? Sure. Why not? There’s no sense in waiting for 8 airbags exploding around you to keep you safe, and 4-wheel disc brakes can’t stop everything. A bit of panache and road manners are the reasons you’ll find a 6-speed automatic transmission here—no one is expecting record-setting efficiency from a 5.7-liter mill.
