This version of the Tundra crew-cab was one of CR's top-rated full-sized pickups. Its strong V8, quiet cab and civilized ride mark it among the most well-rounded pickup trucks we've tested. While it doesn't have super heavy-duty towing capabilities, Tundra will pull 6,700 pounds. Unlike full-time four-wheel-drive systems, the Tundra's part-time system can't be used on dry pavement.
