Imbued with a rich American heritage, the Tundra and Tacoma hail from the heart of San Antonio, Texas. The Tundra stands proud as one of the most "American Made" full-size trucks available on the market. Toyota's commitment to quality and excellence is evident in the billions they have invested in their San Antonio plant, and the numerous supply factories they have established across the U.S. The Tundra is a testament to American ingenuity, designed, built, and sold exclusively in North America. The Tundra's name has an interesting backstory. In its early days, Toyota planned to christen the vehicle as the T150, aligning with the naming convention initiated with the T100. The T150 name graced the prototypes and "show trucks" when the first generation was unveiled in 1999. However, Ford raised objections, claiming the T150 moniker bore too close a resemblance to their F-150 series of trucks. In response, Toyota reevaluated and eventually settled on the name Tundra, a name that resonates with strength and endurance.
