In a hyper-competitive segment that’s seen surprising levels of innovation in recent years, the Toyota Tundra has doggedly stayed the course, offering buyers who prize reliability and resale value over everything else just enough to stay in the hunt. This second-generation model dates all the way back from 2007, although it did receive a facelift in 2011.
Today, the 2018 Toyota Tundra is significantly outclassed in the full-size pickup segment by every other major player, including the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150, GMC Sierra and Ram 1500. The Tundra trails the pack in key metrics like payload and towing capacity, as well as fuel economy. It also falls down when it comes to the intangibles, including areas like cabin and ride quality, as well as tech and safety offerings. The 2018 Toyota Tundra starts at $31,120 before options and delivery.
The Toyota Tundra has been on sale in the US for nearly two decades, but the full-size pickup truck is only in its second generation. The current-generation Tundra has been around since 2007, though it received a major refresh in 2014.
Although long in the tooth compared with much fresher market leaders like the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado, Ram 1500 and Nissan Titan, the Tundra offers plenty of capability and comfort compared with its American-nameplated competitors.
