Toyota Tundra

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.

Editors' First Take

After more than a decade, a new Toyota Tundra is finally here. And after spending a day with Toyota's third-generation full-size truck in Texas, I can confirm it drives better, offers more utility and looks great, to boot.

Big and bold

The 2022 Toyota Tundra will be available in SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 and TRD Pro trims, with TRD Off-Road and Sport packages available on some trims. Double Cab models can be equipped with either a 6.5- or 8.1-foot bed. The Crew Max models have more interior space and come with a 5.5-foot bed, though you can also opt for a 6.5-foot bed for maximum functionality.

Each of the Tundra models has a unique grille, although the differences between trims can be slight. Think unique badging, chrome instead of paint, etc. Regardless, each of the Tundra's grilles are indeed chonky, with proportions more akin to what you'd expect to see on a heavy-duty truck.
