Overall rating

6.7 / 10

Full-size trucks are more popular than ever, and the race to have the most luxurious, advanced and gadget-filled machine is in full swing. Bringing up the back end of this race, however, is the 2019 Toyota Tundra. Compared with the rest of the segment, the aging Tundra is decidedly behind the times.

For starters, Tundra's only available engines are V8s — a 4.6-liter engine that produces 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque or a 5.7-liter engine that produces 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. While we like the 5.7-liter's robust power, other brands are equipping their base trucks with new turbocharged six- and four-cylinder engines. These smaller powerplants provide significantly higher fuel economy and still have enough grunt to get a lot of jobs done.

The lack of the latest features is another drawback for the Tundra. You can't get advanced towing-assist technology (such as a remote-mount trailer camera system) or Apple CarPlay or Android Auto smartphone integration. And, for better or for worse, the Tundra is still very much a truck. Its ride quality and driving characteristics are rougher and less refined than what you'll find elsewhere.

Ultimately, if all you need is a truck to haul cargo and tow a trailer without fuss, the 2019 Toyota Tundra should be on your list to consider. The available TRD Pro variant is pretty cool, too. But we advise checking out the Ram 1500 or the Ford F-150 if you demand more civility and capability from your full-size truck.

Toyota Tundra models

The 2019 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 and TRD Pro. 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. Note that Toyota limits certain combinations of the above, and feature availability can vary depending on where you live in the U.S.

Highlights for the base SR 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. It also includes 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 with 20-inch wheels, automatic headlights, movable tie-down cleats, automatic dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery, an upgraded power driver's 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.

For better off-road performance, the TRD Pro trim features larger aluminum Fox shocks for better heat dissipation and damping control, a 2-inch front lift for more clearance, lighter BBS forged wheels, and LED headlights and foglights to help light up the trail at night. A shiny black exhaust tip and TRD Pro exhaust change the exhaust note, while a front skid plate prominently features the TRD logo in red. Visually, a unique grille, TRD Pro stamping on the rear quarter panels, and a hood scoop separate it from the rest of the line. On the inside, TRD Pro logos are pretty much everywhere.

Trim tested

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 broadly applicable to this year's Tundra, however.


Overall6.7 / 10


A strong optional V8 gives the Tundra some life, but a dated platform numbs overall performance significantly. The Tundra has better off-road capability than a few competitors, but its sheer size may give you pause on tight trails.


The Tundra's optional 5.7-liter V8 has plenty of thrust off the line and enough power to merge or pass on the highway. It isn't exciting like some of the other powertrains in the segment, but it feels robust. In Edmunds testing, our test Tundra did the 0-60 mph sprint in 7.1 seconds, which is an average time for a V8-powered truck.


The brake pedal is numb and the truck is heavy. The combination provides little confidence during emergency braking situations. On mountain roads, the brakes can get overworked since they're an active part of the stability control system. In our brake test, the Tundra came to a stop from 60 mph in 134 feet — average for the segment.


While driving the Tundra, you're constantly reminded of its sheer size. Nowhere is this more true than when you're gripping the steering wheel when going around a corner. You can place the tires well enough, but the steering wheel doesn't return to center well and the steering wheel diameter is massive.


Handling feels ponderous and unsettled at times, especially on tight roads. By every modern pickup truck standard, this thing feels a generation old. Nearly every full-size truck around is more agile and maneuverable, both on curvy roads and in heavy traffic.


The throttle delivery can be abrupt if you aren't careful with pedal pressure, but you can adjust pretty quickly. Otherwise, driving in the city and on the highway is easy, even with the old-school six-speed automatic transmission and the tow-friendly gearing.


With genuine ground clearance and several available off-road read options, the Tundra is one of the most dirt-friendly full-sizes you can buy. Our test vehicle had the TRD Sport package, which is more aimed at on-road handling. But serious off-roaders should check out the TRD Off-Road package or the TRD Pro.


When you go with the 5.7-liter V8, the Tundra comes with heavy-duty springs and an upgraded axle. This means a stiff ride on the highway and around town. Also, it's been quite some time since Toyota addressed the stiff, poorly bolstered seats.

Seat comfort

These are some of the worst seats in a full-size truck today. They're stiff and poorly supported and they lack lumbar adjustment. They also don't go low enough, so even average-height drivers will always have fitment issues. They're barely passable on road trips, likely causing discomfort after just a few hours on the road.

Ride comfort

The Tundra does fine driving over small ruts. But over larger imperfections, it bobbles a lot. The ride is stiff and unforgiving. We imagine that would settle down with a significant payload in the bed, but unladen, it's hard to live with on a daily basis. This is the downside of a making 10,000-pound tow rating standard, not optional. It's possibly been made worse by our test truck's optional TRD Sport handling package.

Noise & vibration

A decent amount of wind and road noise makes it into the cabin, even if it can be reasonably drowned out by music. Engine noise is nicely silenced at cruise, and it rises to a good V8 rumble (that's actually nice to hear) under full acceleration.

Climate control

Our relatively basic SR5 test vehicle didn't have as many creature comforts as other trim levels. Here you get manual, single-zone climate control, but it is easy to use because of its logical layout and big, easy-to-grasp knobs. No heated steering wheel and no heated seats at this level. The small vents mean you have to crank up the air conditioning to cool the cabin down in a hurry.


The Tundra's interior is functional but dated by segment standards. It's roomy as all get-out. But because of the high step-up, even higher driving position and limited visibility over the large hood, this is a tough truck to live with.

Ease of use

The controls are large and well labeled with clear fonts. There are six main buttons next to the touchscreen and three main climate-control knobs. The Tundra may not have an upscale interior, but it is certainly easy to understand and use right away.

Getting in/getting out

A high ride height, no side steps, no grab handle for the driver and a tall seating position make it difficult to get in and out of this truck for drivers of almost any height. The rear doors are extremely long, so at least you won't be squeezing in. Purchase the optional side steps if you can.

Driving position

This truck's seat doesn't go down as much as some drivers would like. If you're of average height, you'll have a difficult time getting the seats or the steering wheel low enough. And if you're tall, the upper edge of the windshield and the folded sun visors can intrude into your field of view more than you'd like.


Side to side, front and back, headroom and legroom — you name it, there's lots of it everywhere. Even before all of its competitors were redesigned and made bigger, the Tundra was one of the roomiest trucks in the class. The center console intrudes a bit on lateral driver legroom, but you hardly notice.


Forward visibility is good but there's a big blind spot over both shoulders and the blind-spot monitoring system doesn't always see what's back there. Down the sides of the vehicle and at the front corners, you'll have a hard time knowing if you're set in a parking spot well. The side mirrors are sufficient if a bit slim.


Build quality is OK, but we found issues with small items. The gas door wouldn't close all the way and most knobs and dials felt cheap, no matter how tight the tolerances were. There weren't any noticeable squeaks or rattles, or any large panel gaps, during our test.


As is the case with any truck this large, the Tundra has a lot of sheer utility, but it loses the battle against more well-packaged and more recently redesigned rivals. Towing numbers are big thanks to a standard 4.30 axle ratio, but they don't match rivals' optional tow packages. Also, the bed is large but very high, and load height is an issue.

Small-item storage

There's a lot of sheer interior volume, but the Tundra makes poor use of the space. The glovebox is small, as are the cupholders, and the center console lid only opens about 70 degrees, so access is tough. The doors have small, slim panels with two far-away can-sized cupholders in each.

Cargo space

Not only does the rear seat have a large hump in the center of the floor, the rear seat bottom is massive and takes up lots of space. The raised platform underneath prevents the loading of flat items. The back seat offers lots of cubic space, but it's not laid out well. Fitting big cargo items is difficult.

Child safety seat accommodation

The back seat is massive in this Tundra so you can fit pretty much any child seat back there. And, as is typical on crew-cab full-size trucks, there are four lower LATCH points and three top tethers to attach child seats.


Yes, the Tundra's maximum average tow rating isn't quite as high as the competition, but there are no asterisks here. Every single 5.7-liter V8-powered Tundra on the dealer's lot can tow about 10,000 pounds. This is not the case with the other full-size trucks, which force you to squint at a complex tow rating chart and buy the right axle ratio and tow package options. Good luck with that. Meanwhile, all 5.7-liter V8 Tundras comes standard with all that's necessary, including an integrated electronic trailer brake controller. Done, finito.


The max payload rating for the Tundra is 1,730 pounds, which is competitive for the segment. The load-in height for the bed is very high, as are the sides of the bed and there are only four cargo tie-downs. There's no fold-out step, trick-folding tailgate or bumper step to make loading items easier either.


Technology is a weak point for the Tundra. Smartphone connectivity is limited, and there's only one USB port. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are not available at all. The performance of the base stereo isn't impressive, and the optional driver aids are overzealous.

Audio & navigation

Audio quality is a underwhelming. Yes, it has sound. Yes, it's decent at lower volumes. But the SR5's six-speaker stereo doesn't get very loud, and if you mess with the standard settings, bass get distorted easily.

Smartphone integration

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto aren't available in the Tundra. There are three 12-volt outlets but only one USB port, and there's no options package that'll get you more. Bluetooth and USB audio connect relatively quickly on a consistent basis.

Driver aids

On the plus side, and it is a big plus, the Tundra comes standard with adaptive cruise control (ACC), automated emergency braking (AEB), lane departure monitoring, drowsiness monitoring and automatic high-beam control. Blind-spot monitoring and cross-traffic alerts are easy to get. On the minus side, the ACC and AEB systems can overreact to neighboring vehicles with a lack of subtlety that can be annoying.

Voice control

Voice controls for music and phone calls work well but only under a very specific menu structure. After some time you can learn the structure and train the system to your style of speech, but it doesn't respond to casual language. iPhone users can use Siri Eyes Free to make calls, select music from their phone, and control certain other phone functions.

4 out of 5 stars, number 5
Limited 4dr CrewMax SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)

everything about this truck is great , but fuel! fuel should be a lot better!. the limited has all the toy"s you could need . Comfort ,leg room, heated seats. quit ride, real power, and a rear window that goes completly down when you want fresh air or want to buy a piece of lumber 12 ft long. Call this review number five not for score but number 5 for the fifth tundra I have purchased in my lifetime I give the tundra a 8.5 only because it lacks better fuel economy!

4 out of 5 stars, Solid, reliable & reasonably comfortable do-it-all
SR5 4dr CrewMax 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)

I am now about 11K miles into my ‘19 Tundra SR5 and absolutely no complaints (except MPG, more on that later). I would’ve given a 5 star rating if not for so-so MPG. I looked at every competitor from Ram, Nissan, Ford and GMC and this took me several months. I eliminated the Ford and GMC right off, I didn’t care for either interior layout/design, or frankly either exterior design. Frankly, the ubiquitous nature of the F150 put me off too. That narrowed it to the Titan, 1500 and Tundra. Frankly, I had initially eliminated the Tundra (all the reviews about MPG, dated etc.) but once I drove it, it was back in and at the top of the list. Loved the Ram 1500, while the most expensive, it was still tied for 1st. Wanted to like the Titan but sadly, driving dynamics were stiff and laggy. The combination of reasonable price/options ratio and solid reliability and resale of the Tundra won out. Frankly, I like the functional, simple but reasonably modern interior, tons of room and found the seats to be just right w/ the cloth beating out the leather, believe it or not. There is a nice rumble from the 5.7L and it feels like it’d pull a house off it’s foundation! I use this truck as a truck too, hauling around all manner of stuff in the bed and I tow a 28’ travel trailer regularly and nothing quite phases this Tundra platform. While towing my admittedly large trailer, the Tundra does work a little but it pulls it just fine with no white knuckles. Yes, it rides a little “truck like” around town but it’s a truck, not an SUV, buy accordingly. MPG is the Tundra’s weakness ... I average real world MPG/tank of 14.8mpg. Towing the trailer it drops to 7.9-8.1mpg which I can live with, I’m towing 7500lbs for chrissakes. It’s the freeway mileage I’d like to see improve by about 20%. I think this package could achieve 18-20mpg, perhaps an extra gear in the transmission would do it. That said, my neighbor’s F150 (3.5L EcoBoost) only beats my Tundra by about 2-3mpg, real world that’s not much. Someone once said “you can go out there in just about anything but to get back, you need a Toyota”. True statement. I have the 4x4 and put aftermarket lift kit, off road shocks and larger, off road oriented tires on TRD wheels. That certainly impacted MPG but makes the Tundra a VERY capable off-highway vehicle. Not much upsets this truck and it’s solidness and legendary reliability means you don’t worry about getting home. In summary, if you want a high riding luxo-barge, by an SUV not a half ton truck. But if you want a very capable, reliable, reasonably comfortable and modern do-it-all, you really cannot go wrong with a Tundra.

5 out of 5 stars, Tough Tundra
Matthew A.,
Limited 4dr CrewMax 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)

I now have 3650 miles on my Tundra 4x4 Limited Crewmax with the 5.7L V-8. The truck is very good looking in the metallic gray paint. The leather interior is better than some of its competitors. I just completed a 2500 trip to Texas driving all interstate miles. The truck averaged 18 miles per gallon. The ride is comfortable on smooth roads. It does a good job absorbing the rough roads but I wish the cab was quieter. This may be due to the fact that there is minimal insulation underneath the truck and fender wells.

5 out of 5 stars, Best deal in a light truck!
1794 4dr CrewMax 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)

Not sure who is paying the reviewers of light pickups. Many articles don’t include comparison to Toyota or Nissan. Perhaps to not offend buyers who only buy American? Last time I checked, the name-sake San Antonio ranch where the Tundras are built is in Texas!!! Just bought a 2019 1794 Tundra and was surprised how inexpensive it was. It’s a beautiful truck inside and out. The ride is incredible, comfortable but precise. Interior is Beautiful, quiet and massive. Less than $50,000 for what is essentially a Lexus pickup. Lower initial cost, higher resale, and way less time dealing with issues. It’s your life!

Toyota Tundra vs. the competition

Toyota Tundra vs. Toyota Tacoma

The Tacoma is the Tundra's little brother. Its smaller size means it can go on narrower trails and is easier to drive and park in the city. But it can't come close to the Tundra's payload and towing capacities. More important, the Tundra's more comfortable and roomier interior allows the driver and passengers to relax and stretch out. Read Edmunds' long-term road test of the Toyota Tacoma.

Compare Toyota Tundra & Toyota Tacoma features

Toyota Tundra vs. Ford F-150

The Ford F-150 offers more available versions and options, so there's a better chance of finding the perfect configuration to suit your needs. The Tundra's V8 power might be a draw, but the F-150's turbocharged V6 engines are just as robust and get better fuel economy. The Ford also wins out with superior infotainment features. Read Edmunds' long-term road test of the Ford F-150.

Compare Toyota Tundra & Ford F-150 features

Toyota Tundra vs. Nissan Titan

The Titan and the Tundra both feature V8-only engine options and an interior that's easy to use. These are trucks that focus more on function than frills. The Titan's driving dynamics are slightly better, and it has an edge on interior comfort for the most part — the Tundra's rear seat area is larger. The two are pretty evenly matched.

2019 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro First Look

Dan Edmunds by Dan Edmunds , Director, Vehicle TestingFebruary 8th, 2018

It's back. The 2019 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro returns from a one-year hiatus after quietly sitting out the 2018 model year. It is not an all-new truck or even a significant redesign, but the 2019 Tundra TRD Pro pickup did receive a couple of specific mechanical revisions that stand to make it more desirable than ever.

Chief among them is the fitment of new 2.5-inch Fox off-road shocks that employ an internal-bypass design. Additionally, the rear units have piggyback-style external reservoirs to increase oil volume and heat capacity. The 2019 Tundra TRD Pro is similar to its 2015-2017 predecessors in its higher stance and improved suspension articulation. That means 2 inches of front lift, a little over 1.5 inches of extra front-wheel travel, and a bit more than 2 inches of extra rear travel compared to a regular Tundra 4x4.

The previous 2.5-inch Bilstein shocks worked well enough, but they didn't have anything close to the position-sensitive damping capability of these new Fox shocks. There are 11 bypass zones up front, with seven increasing levels of compression damping as they approach the bump stops and four increasing levels of rebound damping as they expand toward their full length. The rear shocks have 12 bypass zones, with eight in compression and four in rebound. This upgrade should improve both on-road ride and off-road performance because the truck will normally ride in the soft zone that exists between all those compression and rebound bypass circuits. And when the suspension moves after hitting a bump (or landing a jump), the damping will increase in proportion to the size and severity of the hit as the circuits close in succession.

Other changes include new lightweight 18-inch forged aluminum wheels made by BBS. Each one weighs 3.4 pounds less than the wheels they replace. It may not sound like much, but we're fans of anything that reduces a suspension's unsprung weight. As for the tires, they're the same Michelin P275/65R18 all-terrain tires we've seen before. The desired switch to LT-spec tires has failed to materialize.

Most of the other changes are either cosmetic or natural outgrowths of 2018's minor styling tweaks. The 2019 Tundra TRD Pro is fitted with a more open-mesh grille, but it still adheres to TRD Pro tradition by spelling out "TOYOTA" in block letters. The quarter-inch-thick skid plate is similar, but now it has TRD spelled out in red. It also gains the hood scoop that debuted on last year's Tundra TRD Sport, and it's fitted with that truck's dark-background LED headlights. The 2019 Tundra TRD Pro will also come standard with adaptive cruise control and the other active safety systems that make up the Toyota Safety Sense system, a Tundra-wide change the TRD Pro missed out on during its 2018 vacation.

The 2019 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will be available in three colors: Super White, Midnight Black Metallic and Voodoo Blue, 2019's exclusive TRD Pro color of the year. Pricing won't be released until later in the year as we get closer to the 2019 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro's fall 2018 release date. Before then, we expect to drive one to see how much has been gained by what amounts to a welcome suspension fortification built around Fox 2.5-inch internal bypass shocks.

More about the 2019 Toyota Tundra

The 2019 Toyota Tundra is a full-size pickup truck with five trims, two cab options and three bed lengths. It comes with a standard V8 engine. Most manufacturers let buyers mix and match powertrains, body styles, bed lengths and options. But Toyota has chosen to limit 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. It is available in the double-cab body style only, but you can 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. It is available in Double Cab and CrewMax and gives you 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 a glass-breakage sensor and engine immobilizer.

Finally, the Tundra Platinum and the 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 aren't many options; 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 2019 Toyota Tundra for you.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Toyota Tundra CrewMax?

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.
