What the Critics Say

Long overdue, the redesigned Tundra steps into the present with a smoother ride, much more efficient powertrain choices, and off-road and towing technology that keeps pace with bestselling competitors. The infotainment interface demonstrates Toyota’s commitment to modernizing crucial aspects of the third-generation Tundra.” — The Car Connection
The interior also benefits from updates and upgrades, following the trend of more premium materials and amenities in trucks. The 14-inch touchscreen display, optional on lower grades and standard on upper grades, is a bold visual statement of the Tundra’s intent. The Tundra wants to be your family’s everyday adventure vehicle.” — Kelley Blue Book

Toyota Tundra Performance

Powerful Performance

Whether you’ve got a long day at the job site or a relaxing weekend getaway ahead of you, count on the Toyota Tundra to deliver the performance to take you further. Power comes in the form of a muscular i-FORCE 3.5-liter Twin-Turbo V6 producing 389 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. For drivers craving maximum performance, the available i-FORCE 3.5-liter Twin-Turbo V6 Hybrid cranks out an astounding 437 horsepower and 583 lb-ft of torque to help you tackle the toughest tasks on your to-do list. Slippery situations are no match for the Tundra which features an available Automatic Locking Rear Differential that evenly distributes power to both the front and rear wheels. A sophisticated Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) system can automatically adjust to balance on-road refinement with stability when towing heavy equipment. Equipped with the massive 13.9-inch front and 13.6-inch ventilated brake discs, the Toyota Tundra has plenty of stopping power when you need it most.

Payload & Towing

Impressive payload and towing capabilities are two additional strengths of the proven Toyota Tundra. Combining strength with enhanced on-road comfort is a multi-link rear suspension that replaces the previous generation’s leaf springs with coil springs. Thanks to improved performance, the Tundra now delivers an impressive 12,000-pound maximum towing capacity along with a 1,940-pound maximum payload capacity. This represents 17.6% and 11% improvements, respectively, compared to the previous generation. Another Tundra-first innovation is an available Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) that can automatically adjust based on the current demands. When towing, AVS is able to boost handling capabilities, stability at speed, and confidence behind the wheel. By activating the available Tow/Haul+ transmission mode, your Tundra delivers greater throttle response when towing heavy equipment like a large camping trailer or boat.

Toyota Tundra TRD Interior

Versatile Interior

Inside the Toyota Tundra, both drivers and passengers will find the perfect space to escape the chaos of everyday life thanks to a perfect blend of luxury and ergonomics seldom found on a full-size truck. Instead of folding flat, its rear seats fold up to create a secure cargo area inside the cab for safeguarding your valuables. Get directions, listen to your favorite tunes, and access media with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration via the Audio Multimedia system. Hitching up to your trailer has never been easier thanks to a standard integrated backup camera. On Tundra CrewMax models, a power rear vertical window is included as standard to help fill the interior with fresh air. Giving you the ultimate in luxury, the Tundra 1794 Edition comes equipped with a Western-themed interior featuring brown premium perforated leather-trimmed seats.

Advanced Safety

Regardless of your driving style, even the best of us can use a helping hand to stay safe from the unexpected on the road. This is the exact reason why every Tundra comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ (2.5) (TSS 2.5) — a collection of driver-assistive safety features. Technologies included are Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), Automatic High Beams (AHB), Lane Departure Alert with Sway Warning System (LDA w/SWS), and a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD). The Tundra also was the first full-size pickup to offer an optional Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), highlighting its commitment to keeping occupants protected. You’ll also find 8 standard airbags inside the Toyota Tundra.
