What the 2021 Toyota Tundra Has to Offer

If you're looking for a full-size truck that has plenty of capability, the good news is that there are a lot of options for you to consider. The industry has come a long way from its humble beginnings, and customers are the ones who benefit the most. To provide you with some more information as you shop for your next truck, here's a detailed overview of the Tundra.

At Handy Toyota in Burlington, we feel that the 2021 Tundra is impressive in many ways, from the way it handles itself when faced with challenges to the way it uses technology to make things safe and convenient.

Performance and Capability

Under the hood of a 2021 Toyota Tundra, there's a massive 5.7-liter V8 engine. This engine comes with 381 horsepower and over 400 pound-feet of torque, so it can definitely get the job done anywhere you are around Colchester. Paired with this engine is a six-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission.

Rear-wheel drive is standard, but of course, there is the option to get four-wheel drive if you think you'll benefit from having additional traction. The 4WD system comes with Active Traction Control, and both the rear-wheel and four-wheel drive systems include an automatic limited-slip differential. This differential gives the truck the ability to apply brake pressure on individual wheels if they don't have any traction. This way, power will be sent to the wheels that can use it the most.

Since the truck sits over 10 inches off the ground, you'll be able to clear almost every obstacle without any issue. If you plan on towing cargo, that's not a problem either. The truck can tow up to 10,200 pounds, and it comes standard with a tow hitch receiver. An integrated trailer brake controller is available, as is a trailer-sway control system.


Every one of our new Tundras has an advanced infotainment system that many of our Essex drivers appreciate. As you drive around St. Albans, you can keep yourself entertained and in touch with others. All the high-tech features we like to use in our homes and workplaces can now be integrated into our vehicles. The base model has a seven-inch touchscreen with smartphone compatibility, Bluetooth, Amazon Alexa, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio.

On the other trims, there are eight-inch touchscreens that are even easier to interact with. Multiple USB ports provide plenty of opportunities to keep devices fully charged. Our higher trims feature navigation and JBL speakers. When you have navigation built into your truck, you'll never get lost because you'll be able to follow turn-by-turn directions wherever your next adventure is around South Burlington.

Interior Features

The Tundra feels modern while still being practical and rugged. It can be configured to either have room for five or six passengers. To accommodate six passengers, you'd have a bench seat in the front row as well as in the back. Otherwise, you'll have bucket seats in the front. Leather seating is available, and it can make the cabin feel more refined. The front seats can even be heated and ventilated to enhance your comfort.

Some available features that enhance the experience of riding in a Tundra are an auto-dimming mirror, rear under-seat storage, and a Smart Key System. You can have more confidence from behind the wheel, knowing that your truck will be looking out for you. The Tundra comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense P. The safety package includes automated emergency braking, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure alert.

Your truck will be continually watching out for potential issues, ready to alert you or take action at any time. Select trims also have systems that can monitor blind spots and rear cross-traffic, and they could have a parking assist feature that makes it much easier to maneuver in tight spaces.
