Our Take

from the expert editorial team's Mark Williams compares the 2018 Toyota Tundra and the 2018 Toyota Tacoma.

What it is: The Tundra is Toyota’s half-ton full-size pickup truck that's available in two cab configurations, three cargo bed lengths, a choice of 4.6- or 5.7-liter gas V-8 engines, and rear- or four-wheel drive. Body styles include the four-door Double Cab with conventional rear doors and the four-door CrewMax with larger rear doors and a roomier rear seat. The Tundra competes with the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150 and Nissan Titan.

New for 2018

Toyota Safety Sense P now comes standard. This active safety suite includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control and automatic high-beam headlights.

A new TRD Sport Package includes a honeycomb grille; color-keyed side mirrors, bumpers and hood scoop; 20-inch silver-painted alloy wheels with black accents and TRD graphics. There are also TRD anti-sway bars and Bilstein shocks, and the cabin gets a TRD shift knob and floormats.

The regular-cab Tundra has been dropped from the lineup.

Love my Toyota Tundra PERIOD!!!!

by Jeff Biszantz from Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin on November 8, 2018

Best truck on the road. The 5.7 engine delivers more than enough power. The 10,800 lbs towing is a top reason for our purchase. No other truck on the road delivers the power, towing, and dependability ... Read full review


Great truck

by Gary Poulson from Riverside, CA on November 5, 2018

I have used this truck to tow my toy hauler many times and have had it in some really soft sand. The 4wd is amazing, it pulls like a boss and is comfortable to drive as it has so much room in the cab. ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
