While it’s often overshadowed by the competition, the 2010 Toyota Tundra delivers the key attributes that full-size truck buyers want. It serves as a natural step-up from the popular Tacoma, with more powerful engines and excellent towing capabilities.
The 2010 Toyota Tundra is a full-size truck that’s available in Regular, Double and CrewMax cab configurations. The Regular cab comes in Work Truck and SR5 trims. The Double Cab is available in Work Truck, SR5 and Limited trims. The CrewMax comes in SR5, Limited and Platinum trims. Rear-wheel drive is standard and four-wheel drive is available. The 2010 Tundra comes standard with a V6 engine and an automatic transmission. Two more powerful V8 engine options are available.
Updates for 2010 include a new mid-range V8 engine, with more power and improved efficiency over the previous engine. A top-range Platinum edition and a bare-bones Work Truck are new.
The 2010 Toyota Tundra is not just large: it’s imposing. The front fascia features a three-bar horizontal design and large Toyota logo. A sculpted hood, powerful shoulders, bulging side sills and massive vented bumpers make this truck look every bit as formidable as a Ford F-150 or a Chevrolet Silverado 1500.
Regular and CrewMax models have full-size doors. The Double Cab body style utilizes half-size rear doors. Three bed lengths are available, depending on the cab. The Regular and Double Cab models offer 6-foot-6-inch and 8-foot-1-inch bed lengths. The CrewMax has a 5-foot-6-inch bed.
Standard features include halogen headlights, heated side mirrors and 18-inch steel wheels. All four-wheel-drive models have front tow hooks. Upgrades include fog lamps, alloy wheels, tow mirrors, a sliding rear window, mud flaps and a deck rail system with four adjustable tie-down cleats. A tow package with a tow hitch receiver is also available.
Inside, the Tundra has a spacious cabin with room for three, five or six people, depending on the model. Base models come with hard plastics and metallic trim. Large circular gauges dominate the driver’s view. The center stack has a utilitarian look and function, with dual-level glove boxes and an available front seat storage compartment as standout features.
Standard equipment includes power windows, power door locks, a tilt steering column, dual-zone air conditioning and cloth seats. Upgrades include a tilt-and-telescopic steering column, power-adjustable leather seats and dual-zone automatic climate control.
The Tundra offers strong power, especially when equipped with a V8 engine. Steering is light and precise, making this full-size pickup truck easy to maneuver. Despite its hefty size, body roll is minimal. Big brakes help bring this pickup truck to a full stop.
The 2010 Tundra has three engine choices. Standard on rear-wheel-drive regular and Double Cab models is a 4.0-liter V6 engine with 236 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is a five-speed automatic.
Most models come with a 4.6-liter V8 engine with an output of 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque. Available on all trims is a 5.7-liter V8 engine making 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. Both V8 engines get a six-speed automatic transmission.
The base Tundra earns up to an EPA-estimated 15/20 mpg city/highway. Models with the 4.6-liter and 5.7-liter V8s deliver up to 14/19 mpg and 14/18 mpg, respectively. The Tundra’s maximum towing capacity measures a robust 10,800 pounds.
Toyota equips the Tundra with a standard four-speaker audio system (six speakers in Double Cab and CrewMax models). It includes a CD player, satellite radio capability and an auxiliary audio input.

User Reviews for 2010 Toyota Tundra
by Uncle Dave on January 12, 2020
"I was looking for a used truck that had high marks for reliability; the Toyota line appeared to the answer. Operating within my budget limitations, I found the 2010 Tundra to meet all my needs. The Tundra serves as a second vehicle so I expect it won't see a lot of mileage but it's a pleasure to drive and I look for excuses to do so. Well done, Toyota! "
A lot of room - easily accommodates 6 adults.
Fit and finish are good for a truck that's 10 years old.
Plenty of power available.
Lots of room on the inside; truck bed accommodates all my current needs.
I expect maintenance costs to be below average as it's a second vehicle and I won't be operating it as frequently as my primary. This will also hopefully keep my gasoline purchases to a minimum; the 5.7L V8 is not exactly "going green" but it all suits my needs.
"This is the best vehicle that I have ever owned. The looks, style, and great MPG IS THE BEST. Seats 5-6 people and each person has plenty of room. I've had Mustang, Audi, Impala, VW Bug, and a Corolla. The Corolla was small, but it out performed all of the others with a MGP of 20-22 . I upgraded to the Tundra and have not regretted that decision one bit. GO TUNDRA!!!"
I get 18 mpg on this truck. I have a friend who has a Ford F-150 and he only gets between 10-12mpg.
I have the whole truck bed to load all of our luggage or any other thing that needs to be hauled away or to bring home.
"This is by far the best truck I have ever owned. I have owned over ten trucks in my life. I had a 2013 Tundra which was ruined by mother nature. I then bought a 2017 Tundra, nice truck but missing a lot of the features of the 07-13 models. So I found a great used 2010 Tundra CrewMax 4x4 and I'm back in a truck I like again."
Very comfortable seats. Lots of storage. HUGE rear seating in the CrewMax. Good build quality.
The 5.7 iForce V8 is a beast. I tow a few times a year and nothing seems to phase it.
Lots of interior space.
Toyota Tundra's are not cheap but they hold their value like gold. Good if you are an owner or seller, not so much if you are a buyer.
"I bought this Tundra because it is in very good condition, and it had all the service records on Carfax. Also, Toyota Tundra is rated the most reliable truck made right now. It also has a lot of great features. I will use it for general driving and to pull my RV." Read Less

"I bought this truck to pull a 6800 lb. travel trailer. The truck has a 10300 lb. tow rating with the 5.7 liter engine and tow package. So far I'm very satisfied with towing capability. The reason for four stars out of five is gas milage could be better." Read Less

"4 doors, excellent condition. Everyday vehicle, home improvement items in the bed. Gas mileage about 14 with city driving. Excellent truck"
