The automaker acquired 2,000 acres at the site on the city’s south side and began construction on the facility in 2003. This model has a Western ranch theme, similar to that of the Ford King Ranch editions.Tundras will continue to come in three cab sizes – Regular, with two doors and no back seat; Double Cab, with four doors and a three-person rear bench seat; and the CrewMax, also with four doors and an even-roomier back seat, intended primarily for delivering a five-person crew and a load of supplies to a work site. It’s great for families, too.All models are available with rear- or four-wheel drive. Outside, there is a new front end with redesigned grille integrated into the hood. There are three-piece lower bumpers, and fenders and wheel wells have been squared off.Standard (6.5 feet) and long (8 feet) cargo bed lengths are offered, depending on the model.
