The interior of the Toyota Tundra CrewMax Limited is sure to please both driver and crew. Up front, the 2008 CrewMax Limited’s comfortable and supportive leather trimmed front bucket seats have variable heating to take away the chill and power lumbar support to ease an aching back.
The steering wheel provides audio and handsfree Bluetooth controls. Bluetooth sync is simple to accomplish and the system in our test unit performed without a hitch.
While the 2008 Tundras CrewMax Limited is fitted with a basic audio input jack, USB input is available on 2009 models. The 12-speaker JBL audio system pumps out the tunes and is standard with the Limited.
There are plenty of power outlets inside the cabin, with two at the base of the dash, one inside the massive center console, and one at the back of the console, in-between the rear HVAC vents. The climate control system is dual zone.
No doubt about it … this is is a different kind of work truck. The center console is a veritable file cabinet, with places for business cards, writing utensils, and even room for hanging files. Duel gloveboxes provide plenty of additional storage space.
Optional tube steps along with well-positioned grab handles ease access into the cabin.
As comfortable as the front seats are, the second row is the real treat. The 60/40 slide and recline rear seats provide a remarkable amount of room, with 44-1/2 inches of legroom.
The Tundra CrewMax delivers a wonderful open air driving experience when you open the optional power tilt and slide moonroof and roll down the standard rear sliding window.
Moving a big truck around in tight spaces can be a chore. The optional DVD Navigation system includes a handy backup monitor. The standard Sonar system provides a sensor on each corner of the truck, fore and aft, port and starboard.
No doubt about it, the Tundra CrewMax rewards a good day of hard work … or play, with a massive towing capacity and plenty of room to haul the gang.
