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. Updates for 2018 include standard forward-collision warning with automatic braking and pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, and adaptive cruise control.

Highs

  • Excellent 5.7-liter powertrain
  • High tow ratings

Lows

  • Lacks the refinement, quietness, and ride comfort of the more-modern competition
  • Limited array of build configurations, compared to the domestics

Best Version to Get

Go for the Limited, which gives you the 5.7-liter V8 as well as blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic warning without forcing you into a TRD off-road suspension package. It costs more than a similarly-equipped SR5, but the ride quality is worth it.
