The Beast

2003 Toyota Tundra TRD 4WD paired with a 2007 Palomino Bronco 800 pop-up camper

Specifications and features of the 2003 Toyota Tundra:

  • Toyota’s legendary 4.7L i-Force V8 Engine Equipped with Toyota Direct Ignition and sequential fuel injection provides more than enough power to overtake buses in the passing lane even at 4000m.  In addition to its capacity for hard work, the Tundra i-Force V8 rewards the driver and occupants with quick response and super-low NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) characteristics.
  • Power-assisted front-ventilated disc brakes with four-piston calipers and rear drums. A four-wheel anti-lock brake system (ABS) is standard on all models.
  • 4WD: A Touch Select system uses convenient dash-mounted buttons to switch between two-wheel drive, four-wheel drive “high” and four-wheel drive “low” modes.
  • New for the 2003 model, a spacious center console offers ample in-cab storage with four cup holders, dual map pockets and hidden storage compartments.

The selection of the 2003 Tundra SR5 trim complete with the TRD Off-Road Package, and Heavy Duty Tow Package was extensively researched and is ideally suited for a pop-up truck camper.  The Toyota Tundra was introduced into the competitive North American full-sized truck market in the year 2000.  In the first three years of production Toyota had production issues and design oversights that were not remedied until the 2003 year model.

Toyota responded in 2003 to the shortcomings and oversights by releasing a fresh look for the Tundra and new upgraded options such as the 7-Pin towing connector, HD tow package and dedicated transmission cooler.  Quite simply the 2003 model Tundra is a beefier truck compared with the 2000-2002 production years.  Further, the quality assurance issues related to the I-Force V8 engine were corrected for the 2003 model.

According to MSN’s reliability rating system the 2003 Tundra receives a 5 out of 5 for overall reliability.
