The Toyota Tundra pickup truck is offered with the CrewMax and Double Cab configurations, along with the standard regular cab. The differences between the CrewMax and the Double Cab are substantial. The Double Cab is an extended-cab version of the regular cab model, although it has four doors. The CrewMax Tundra is larger and has more engine options.
The Toyota Tundra CrewMax and Double Cab trucks are offered in the SR5 and Limited trim packages. The Double Cab is equipped with either a 6.5-foot cargo box or an 8-foot bed. The CrewMax comes only with the short 5.5-foot cargo box. The Double Cab is comparable to domestic and import competitors' pickups. The CrewMax features the largest cab of any truck in the full-size pickup market, according to Edmunds.com.
The four-wheel-drive CrewMax sits on a 145.7-inch wheelbase with an overall length of 228.7 inches. It is 79.9 inches wide and 75.6 inches tall. The ground clearance is 10 inches. The cargo box is 22.2 inches deep, according to TruckTrend.com.
The Double Cab model sits on either 127.4- or 140.6-inch wheelbase, depending on the cargo box size. Its overall length is 208.1 or 221.3 inches, with a width of 74.6 inches and height measuring 70.1 inches. The bed depth is 18 inches, according to TruckTrend.com.
The major difference between the two models is the room inside the CrewMax, which seats up to six people. The truck's Interior dimensions are 40.2 and 38.7 inches in front and rear headroom, respectively; 42.5 and 44.5 inches in front and rear legroom, respectively; 66.6 and 65.4 inches of front and rear shoulder room, respectively; and 63 inches of hip room.
The Double Cab model is smaller and seats five people, with the following respective front and rear dimensions: 40.2 and 35.2 inches of headroom, 41.7 and 28.1 inches of legroom, 57.7 and 59.3 inches of shoulder room, and 53.6 and 55.2 of hip room.
The CrewMax is powered by a 4.7- or a 5.7-liter V-8 engine. The standard Toyota Tundra 4-liter V-6 engine is not available in the CrewMax. The truck's gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), or maximum allowable weight when loaded with people and cargo, is about 7,000 lbs. Its towing capacity ranges from 10,100 to 10,400 lbs., and its maximum payload capacity is 1,680 lbs.
The Double Cab is offered only with the 4-liter V-6 engine. The gross vehicle weight rating for the four-wheel-drive model is 5,450 lbs. It has a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs., and the payload capacity is rated up to 1,540 lbs.
