Visit Toyota for more information on the Toyota Tundra.

Toyota lifts the veil on a brand-new Tundra configuration this year: a big, bad Double Cab crew-style model. It brings more seating area, a deep cargo bed and a number of unique comfort options to the 2004 Toyota Tundra family of pickups.

With the new Double Cab, the 2004 Toyota Tundra is officially entered in the full-size pickup truck segment, joining the likes of the Ford F150, Dodge Ram and Chevy Silverado. While most models in this segment are tough and strong, none can boast the legendary reliability of Toyota powertrains. Until now, that is.

Available Models
The Double Cab joins a regular cab and Access Cab extended cab. There are four trim levels offered for 2004: base, SR5 V6, SR5 V8 and Limited.

Interior Features
Double Cabs come with front bucket seats; the others offer a bench or bucket seats. Both Access and Double cabs have a three-passenger split fold rear seat. However, the Double Cab has quite a bit more rear leg and head room.

The 2004 Toyota Tundra Base models are really stripped-down, without many comfort features at all. Inside, they have cloth upholstery, cupholders, AM/FM/CD player, digital clock and a few more things. However, there are plenty of options available.

At the other end of the spectrum is the Limited model. It offers such things as leather upholstery, a sunroof and rear DVD entertainment.

Exterior Features
The 2004 Toyota Tundra Double Cabs have a 6.2-ft cargo box with walls 4 inches higher than on other models. In addition, their unique frame adds 12.2 inches to the wheelbase and 12.6 inches to the overall length. They're also 3 inches higher and 4 inches wider. One more thing: at the back is a unique power-down rear window.Toyota Tundra regular cabs and Access Cab extended cabs offer 8-ft cargo beds (regular cab) and 6.5-ft beds (Access Cabs).

The 2004 Toytoa Tundra Double Cabs use a V8 engine and 4-speed automatic transmission; that setup is available in other Toyota Tundras. Regular cab and Access models offer a V6 engine with 5-speed manual transmission or optional automatic transmission.

The V6 used is a 3.4-liter model. It delivers 190 horsepower at 4800 rpm and 220 lb-ft of torque at 3600 rpm.

The V8 is a 4.7-liter, 285-cubic inch model. It pumps out 240 horsepower at 4800 rpm and 315 lb-ft of torque at 3400 rpm.
All Toyota Tundras offer rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. It must be disengaged on dry pavement, but it does include low-range gearing.

Safety and Security
Antilock 4-wheel disc brakes are standard. An antiskid system is optional.
