The 2018 Toyota Tundra is a full-size pickup truck with four trims, two cab options and three bed lengths. It's also the only full-size truck in the segment with a standard V8 engine. Most manufacturers allow owners to customize and mix and match powertrains, body styles, bed lengths and options. But Toyota has gone down a different path by limiting options and platforms. For the most part, it works well because the builds that Toyota offers are fairly representative of what most consumers buy.
The base SR trim level is largely meant for commercial use. Available in the double-cab body style only, you'll be able to pick between the 4.6-liter V8 (310 hp, 327 lb-ft) or 5.7-liter V8 (381 hp, 401 lb-ft) in either rear- or four-wheel drive.
The SR5 trim level is where the real action begins. Available in Double Cab and CrewMax, you'll get more standard features and greater access to options. A TRD Off-Road package adds 18-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, Bilstein shock absorbers, engine and fuel tank skid plates, and LED headlights and foglights.
For a more luxury-oriented truck, check out the Limited. An optional Premium package adds parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, auto up-down power windows, driver footwell illumination, an Entune JBL audio system with navigation, and an alarm system with glass breakage sensor and engine immobilizer.
Finally, the Tundra Platinum and 1794 Edition top things off with perforated leather, heated and ventilated seats, and standard technology such as blind-spot monitoring. At this grade, there really isn't much to choose: They're available in the CrewMax cab and 5.7-liter V8 configuration only.
As you can see, Toyota has greatly simplified the truck-buying process. If that appeals to you, let Edmunds be your guide to finding and building the perfect 2018 Toyota Tundra for you.
