Toyota Tundra
2017
Toyota Tundra 2017 crew cab Trim Shown: 2017 SR5 crew cab 4WD Automatic
Despite a recent freshening that updated the exterior and interior, including improved controls, the Tundra feels outclassed by newer and more refined competitors. It offers a standard two-door regular cab and two sizes of crew cabs. You can choose between a very powerful 5.7-liter V8 and a 4.6-liter V8. The six-speed automatic is very smooth and responsive. Handling is secure, but the ride with the TRD package is way too stiff. The cabin is very roomy, but it's a long reach to some controls. Towing performance is extremely capable. The damped rear tailgate is easy to raise and lower.

2007 Redesign Year
Toyota Tundra 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Double Cab SR5
Toyota tried hard to crack the full-size truck code with their second-generation Tundra, introduced in 2007. Unlike the original, this Texas-built version is sized on par with 1/2-ton domestic competition and offers similar towing and payload capabilities. Three different cab sizes and three different bed lengths are available. Our favorite engine choice is the rewardingly powerful 5.7-liter V8; thus equipped, the Tundra can tow around 10,000 pounds. Mated with a smooth and responsive six-speed automatic, we measured a competitive 15 mpg from this engine. Smaller available V6 and V8 engines are also smooth, but are less powerful. Off-road capability is impressive, but the four-wheel-drive system is part-time only. Handling is secure but there is no denying this is a big truck. Stability control is standard. Ironically, given the demure Tundras that preceded it, this generation lacks the refinement of many of the domestic competitors, which tend to be quieter and ride better. The ride in TRD-equipped Tundras is particularly stiff. Inside, there is plenty of room and supportive seats, but it can be a reach to the otherwise simple-to-use controls. Nice touches include a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, rare among trucks, and an easy-to-lift tailgate. While domestic trucks have received several updates, changes to the Tundra since its introduction have been minor, making later years feel somewhat dated. Probably the biggest Tundra advantage is superior reliability over the domestic rivals.

Toyota Tundra 2006 Trim Shown: 2006 Double Cab
We regarded the 2000 model year Tundra as an excellent pickup truck. It's comfortable, quiet, handles relatively well and has a super smooth powertrain. Toyota's pickup also tows and hauls convincingly. The IIHS says the Tundra is also capable of good offset-crash-test results, which is a considerable plus. A crew cab with optional stability control was added to the lineup for the 2004 model year.
