Current Model
The redesigned 2022 Toyota Tundra aims to play catch up, with new powertrains, large tow capacity, rich roster of safety features, and a contemporary multimedia system. The Tundra gives up its V8 engine and can be configured with a choice of two twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engines: a 389-hp standard engine and a 437-hp hybrid.
Both engines are paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Maximum tow capacity is 12,000 pounds, with maximum payload now 1,940 pounds. The bed is made of dent-resistant composite material. The Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 suite is standard on every Tundra trim level, with FCW, AEB with pedestrian warning, LDW, LCA, ACC, and rear seat reminder. The redesigned Tundra will go on sale late in 2021.

2021
Despite a freshening that brought improved controls and updates to the exterior and interior, the Tundra is long in the tooth and is outdated against newer, more refined competitors. It offers a standard two-door regular cab and two sizes of crew cabs.
The powerful 5.7-liter V8 shifts through a very smooth and responsive six-speed automatic transmission. Handling is secure, but the ride is jittery, especially with the TRD off-road package. 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. The Tundra now offers greater availability of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. FCW and AEB are standard, and BSW is optional. A redesigned model debuts for 2022.

2007-2020
2007 Redesign Year
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 the consistent superior reliability over the domestic rivals.

2000-2006
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.
