Minor tweaks headline changes to the Toyota Tundra as it enters the 2012 model year. Updates to the full-size pickup include new components that improve performance in extreme use, added standard equipment and a trim level reshuffling designed to make it easier for buyers to choose the right Tundra.

For 2012, the Tundra includes more standard equipment, including heated power mirrors and daytime running lights for all models. The full-size pickup also gains several new components designed for extreme use, including a heavy-duty battery and starter, a windshield wiper de-icer and standard mud flaps for front and rear wheels.

Toyota also announced the Tundra will see streamlined trim levels for the upcoming model year. Formerly offered with different equipment based on the truck's body style and bed length, the 2012 Tundra will be offered in just two trim levels: Tundra and Limited. The automaker says base Tundra models come standard with a 270-horsepower 4.0-liter V6 and a five-speed automatic transmission, while a 310-horsepower 4.6-liter V8 mated to a six-speed automatic is optional.

Buyers selecting the Tundra Limited get the V8 engine standard, along with a host of luxury and convenience features. Standard items include automatic climate control, Bluetooth, an in-dash six-disc CD changer, steering wheel audio controls and 18-inch alloy wheels. From there, buyers can pick Regular, Double or Crew Max cabs, plus choose between short, standard or extended-length beds.

Despite the simplification of the Tundra's trim levels, buyers interested in heading off road will be happy to know the popular Rock Warrior package was also carried over for 2012. Featuring Bilstein shocks, 17-inch wheels and off-road tires, the package was upgraded for the new model year to include a standard backup camera, which is displayed in the pickup's auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Toyota has not yet announced pricing for the 2012 Tundra, which is expected to arrive in dealerships nationwide by the end of the year.
