About Toyota Tundra
The 2006 Toyota Tundra Double Cab pickup has four full-size doors and a conventional back seat, making it ideal for use as a family vehicle.
With a length of slightly over 19 feet, it may be more difficult to park than, say, a Camry sedan.
However, if you need to combine the benefits of a family sedan with the towing capacity of a full-size pickup, the Tundra Double Cab might be the correct decision.
Toyota’s largest Tundra model, the Double Cab, which debuted just two years ago, provided the Japanese carmaker with a much-needed expansion to its restricted Tundra lineup. Initially, only conventional and extended-cab Tundras were available. However, with the growing popularity of full-size pickups as primary personal and family transportation, particularly in Texas, Toyota needed to introduce a four-door Tundra to compete with the best-selling Ford F-150 Super Crew, as well as the Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra light-duty crew-cab and Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab models. Toyota also needed the Double Cab because Nissan released its first full-size pickup, the Titan, which comes in extended- and crew-cab configurations. The Titan crew cab model, like the Tundra Double Cab, has a large back seat and normal rear doors.
Toyota can target the fastest-growing portion of the full-size pickup market with this four-door Tundra. These pickups are mostly used for personal transportation, and they are frequently occupied by families. With four full doors and a typical back seat, a pickup can be a very good family car, except that if you’re hauling groceries or Wal-Mart goods, you have to place them in the open pickup bed if the cab is full of family.
Double Cab versions are available in two trim levels: SR5 (base price $26,620 plus $565 freight) and Limited ($30,245), which we tested. Prices are for two-wheel-drive cars; four-wheel-drive models start at $29,950 plus freight for the SR5 and $33,575 for the Limited.
