What powers the 2018 Toyota Tundra?

The Tundra brings a 310-horsepower 4.6-liter V8 base engine with 327 lb-ft torque. A 381-horsepower 5.7-liter V8 is available that attains 401 lb-ft torque, and is capable of utilizing E85 fuel (as well as regular 87+ octane). Either engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Tundra can tow between 9,800- and 10,200-lbs, plus, can haul between 1,440- and 1,600-lbs, depending on drivetrain and engine choices. The Tundra goes off-road like a dream, especially when paired with the TRD Off-Road package.

In the 2018 Toyota Tundra, what is the essential design layout?

There are dual body styles (Double Cab & CrewMax) and triple truck bed sizes. Trim grades are the SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, and the 1794 Edition. The 1794 edition has a Western-styled interior and a Chrome Billet on the nose. The Rear-wheel drive is standard and 4-wheel drive is an available possibility. The Tundra seats five or six occupants, directly related to the choice of getting front bucket seats instead of the standard bench seat. Both standard Double Cab and CrewMax models possess a lot of leg room for the back of the cabin area, and hardly any will be hitting their heads with all of the room back there. The Tundra brings 5.5-foot, 6.5-foot, and 8.1-foot truck beds into the mix, depending on the model choice. Standard tech amenities in the 2018 Tundra are Bluetooth, cruise control, a color 3.5" multi-info display with odometer, LED Daytime Running Lights, and the Entune infotainment system with a 6.1" touchscreen, voice recognition, 2 front 12V auxiliary power outlets, Siri Eyes Free, and a USB port. Potential accommodations to acquire would be a power moonroof, running boards, 2-zone automatic climate control, a 12-speaker JBL audio system, chrome heated power outside mirrors, 20" wheels, and an enhanced Entune system with a 7" touchscreen, HD Radio, and navigation.

Final Thoughts on the 2018 Toyota Tundra

For 2018, Toyota made the Safety Sense package standard in the Tundra, and a rear backup camera is standard across models. This package includes Toyota Safety Sense™ with features such as a PreCollision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Sway Warning System, Automatic High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. Eight airbags are standard in the Tundra, as is the LATCH system, a tire pressure monitor system, and Trailer Sway Control. A standalone option is an anti-theft system with alarm, glass breakage sensor, and an engine immobilizer, but it is already standard on the Platinum Crewmax and the 1794 Edition Crewmax models. Safety is essential in a Toyota, and the Tundra adds it in as deftly as it cuts through the muck out back!
