Toyota is known for durability, longevity, and excellent resale value. The 2012 Toyota Tundra is no different. The 2012 Tundra is a top contender in its segment beating out the Ram 1500, Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra with overall lowest true cost to own. *

Cost to Own a TundraToyota Tundra

True cost to own is found by adding out of pocket expenses for the duration of ownership with the Tundra’s depreciation or the difference between the purchase price and what the Tundra will be worth at the end of a 5-year term. Not only is it the best indicator for the long-term affordability, but it also determines the Tundra’s worth.

Every car purchase will suffer from depreciation starting the moment you drive off the lot. However, you can lessen the impact by purchasing a vehicle with great resale value. When it comes time to sell the vehicle, your efforts to reduce losses will have paid off. While the 2012 Tundra double cab doesn’t have the lowest MSRP of the segment, it does have excellent resale value and the lowest depreciation of the bunch! In fact, 2012 Tundra drivers still save $2,000 more than the closest competitor.

Out of pocket costs of the Tundra are lower than much of the competition. While the yearly savings a Tundra can bring may seem small, they add up to significant numbers over the term of ownership. Tundra drivers save an average of over $200 on financing and state fees combined and almost $900 on maintenance and repairs when compared to the competition’s average. What’s more, the Tundra is more fuel-efficient than the Ram 1500, Chevy Silverado, and GMC Sierra. This fuel savings banks almost $250 annually.

The powerful 2012 Toyota Tundra keeps costs low all while providing you with the strongest performance, durability and endurance around.
