Which Tundra does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Shopping for a full-size truck can be a challenge. Though there are only a few models to choose from, deciding which is best can be daunting. Toyota's offering for consumers is the 2018 Tundra. Some shoppers will undoubtedly appreciate the Tundra's V8-only powertrains, and others will enjoy the relatively straightforward ordering process compared to domestic rivals. And though the Tundra doesn't have a wealth of bells and whistles to choose from, it does have appealing core competencies. It can tow more than 10,000 pounds and is quite capable on the occasional off-road trip.
But rival full-size trucks have all benefited from recent overhauls, and the Tundra hasn't seen an all-new revision since 2007, which means the 2018 Tundra lags in advancements compared to the current segment leaders. Most manufacturers offer a diesel engine option for efficiency and torque over long hauls or turbocharged gasoline engines for superior performance and fuel efficiency. Even suspension technology has increased such that most rival trucks ride more comfortably.
Ultimately, the made-in-America 2018 Toyota Tundra has its share of good qualities, but it's not enough to push it to the top of the full-size truck category this year.
2018 Toyota Tundra configurations
The 2018 Toyota Tundra is a full-size pickup that is available in one of five trim levels: the base SR, the value-conscious SR5, the flexible Limited, the upmarket Platinum and the specialized 1794 Edition. Two engines are available, both V8s: a 4.6-liter (310 hp, 327 lb-ft) and a 5.7-liter (381 hp, 401 lb-ft). From there, you'll pick a body style (the regular Double Cab crew cab or extra large CrewMax) and one of three bed lengths (5.5-foot short bed, 6.5-foot standard bed and 8.1-foot long bed). Note that Toyota limits certain combinations of the above, and feature availability can also vary depending on the region of the country in which you live.
Highlights for the base SR (Double Cab body only) include 18-inch steel wheels, heated mirrors, a windshield wiper de-icer, a damped tailgate, a rearview camera, an integrated trailer brake controller, a tilt-only steering wheel, Bluetooth, a 6.1-inch touchscreen interface, and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player and a USB port. Also included is forward collision warning and mitigation (with automatic braking), lane departure warning, automatic high beams and adaptive cruise control.
Going with the SR5 gets you foglights, variable intermittent windshield wipers and an upgraded tech interface that includes a 7-inch touchscreen, HD and satellite radio, traffic information and a navigation app. The crew cab adds a power-opening rear window and an overhead console.
The SR5's Upgrade package adds front bucket seats with a power-adjustable driver seat, a center console (with storage and console shifter), a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a larger 38-gallon gas tank when equipped with the 5.7-liter V8. There's also a TRD Sport package that adds 20-inch wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, a hood scoop, body-colored mirrors and bumpers, LED headlights and foglights, TRD shift knob, floor mats and graphics.
The Limited builds on the Upgrade options package equipment with 20-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, movable tie-down cleats, automatic dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery, an upgraded power driver seat and a power-adjustable passenger seat, a power horizontal-sliding rear window (extended cab), a navigation system and additional stereo speakers.
At the top of the heap, the Platinum trim level comes with distinctive styling elements, LED daytime running lights, power-folding and auto-dimming mirrors, a sunroof, heated and ventilated front seats, driver-seat memory functions and a 12-speaker JBL sound system.
The 1794 Edition really only differs from the Platinum in terms of its exclusive exterior and interior styling elements.
A TRD Off-Road package can be added to the SR5, Limited and 1794 Edition. It includes 18-inch TRD wheels, off-road tires, LED headlights, trail-tuned shock absorbers, skid plates and tow hooks.
Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Toyota Tundra CrewMax 1794 Edition (5.7L V8 | 6-speed automatic | 4WD).
NOTE: Since this test was conducted, the current Tundra has received some revisions, including an upgraded infotainment system and new driver safety aids. Our findings remain applicable to this year's Tundra, however.

Toyota Tundra vs. the competition
2018 Toyota Tundra
2018 Toyota Tacoma
Toyota Tundra vs. Toyota Tacoma
While the Tundra and Tacoma aren't exactly competitors, you might be interested in both trucks simultaneously. The Tacoma is in the midsize segment, while the Tundra is a full-size truck. The difference is in the dimensions. The Tundra is bigger and capable of hauling a lot more. The Tacoma is more adept off-road and, since it's smaller, is a better fit for congested urban driving.
Toyota Tundra vs. Ford F-150
The Ford F-150 is a powerhouse in the light-duty pickup truck segment. It is available with multiple powertrains, including a turbocharged V6 and a smooth-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission. It also offers big towing and hauling capabilities and plenty of modern tech. The Tundra might have a slight edge when it comes to pricing, but after objectively evaluating both trucks, we prefer the Ford.
Toyota Tundra vs. Nissan Titan
Both the Tundra and Titan come with standard V8s. The Tundra has two available V8s, and the Titan has only a single engine choice. But both trucks are competitively priced with simple trim-level structures, which make them easy to configure. The Titan has a slight edge over the Tundra because of its better driving dynamics and more comfortable cabin, but shoppers would do well to test-drive both trucks.
2018 Toyota Tundra CrewMax Cab for Sale
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.

Should I lease or buy a 2018 Toyota Tundra?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
