The 2007 Toyota Tundra Double Cab adds a second row of seating, for up to six passengers overall. It is technically a four-door, though the rear doors are smaller, reverse-hinged, and do not open independently of the front doors. For a full four-door pickup, look to the Crew Max. The full-size pickup comes in either rear-wheel or part-time four-wheel drive with a limited-slip rear differential. It can be outfitted with one of two V8 engines and transmissions. The 271-hp, 4.7-liter DOHC V8 is matched to a 5-speed automatic and delivers 313 ft-lbs of torque. The 381-hp 5.7-liter DOHC V8 comes only with a 6-speed transmission and puts out 401 ft-lbs of torque. Gas mileage hovers around 14/18 mpg, with towing capacity anywhere from 7,800 to 10,800 pounds, depending on the engine and drive system. A tow hitch is standard.
All trims of the 2007 Tundra Double Cab are offered with either a 6.5- or 8-foot cargo bed, which can be equipped with an optional bedliner, cargo net, and tie-downs. The Double Cab also ups the feature ante from the two-door Regular Cab by adding power windows, locks, and mirrors, remote entry, and cruise control in the Tundra SR5. The Tundra Limited tacks on power front seats, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a trip computer, Bluetooth, a compass, electroluminescent gauges, an upgraded audio system with wheel-mounted controls, a universal remote, and telescopic steering. These are available as options for the SR5. Already standard are tilt and power steering, a CD player, intermittent wipers, a temperature gauge, and a front power outlet.
Built on a double-wishbone front and solid live axle rear suspension, the 2007 Tundra Double Cab earns four stars in frontal impact tests. Its dual front-side airbags and side head airbags for both rows feature rollover sensors and passenger deactivation. 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, a front stabilizer bar, and traction and stability control are all standard. The SR5 rides on 18-inch wheels with all-season tires, while the Limited makes those wheels alloy. All-terrain tires come with the 4WD. The pickup has 10 inches of ground clearance, and the Limited version features skid plates. A tire monitor is standard across the line. The Limited adds a bunch more safety equipment that's optional for the SR5, such as mirrors with turn signals, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, folding mirrors, and foglights. Options add a rearview camera, a navigation system, front and rear parking sensors, and larger 20-inch alloy wheels.
