The Toyota Tundra is an exceptionally capable pickup truck, not unlike its direct rivals in the Ford F-Series, Chevy Silverado, the RAM, GMC Sierra or the Nissan Titan.
It’s hard to find any real downsides to any of these trucks, although if your goal is to literally tackle any type of terrain, you better be sure you’re driving a version with sufficient ground clearance, plenty of power, the right suspension setup and of course, proper off-road tires.
Seen as how this 2019 Toyota Tundra managed to get itself stuck in some mud, we’re willing to wager that at least some of those factors weren’t as they should be for these types of slippery conditions. In fact, the Toyota truck looks pretty much stock, although it might be wearing the TRD Off-Road Package.
Either way, it’s safe to assume that it’s powered by a 5.7-liter V8 engine, with 381 HP and 401 lb-ft (543 Nm) of torque on tap, which might not be enough pulling power for certain sticky situations, but since we’re speculating, we’d rather bet on this being a lack of traction issue, more than anything else.
As luck would have it, somebody in a modded 2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty came to help, boasting 22-inch Fuel Maverick Rims, 40×15.50 Fury Off-Road tires, a 6-inch lift kit and Patriot tuning.
Its best feature though? The optional 6.7-liter V8 turbo diesel unit, with 450 HP and no fewer than 935 lb-ft (1,267 Nm) of torque. It’s no wonder it managed to pull the Tundra out of the mud and up the hill back towards the freeway.
