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.
2019 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.
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.

2019 Toyota Tundra First Impressions
2019 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro First Look
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.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 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.
