A capable alternative to domestic pickups, the 2013 Toyota Tundra checks in with a robust towing capacity and a dedicated off-road equipment package. You can find some notable luxury features in the Tundra as well, such as heated and ventilated front seats.
The 2013 Toyota Tundra is a full-size pickup. It’s offered in three cab styles, the roomiest of which has seating for six people. The Tundra entry model is part of a three-trim lineup, along with Limited and Platinum. The standard powertrain combines a five-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. A six-speed automatic and all-wheel drive are optional for all trims.
The Tundra benefits from minor changes for 2013. This includes wider availability for the Tundra’s display navigation system and the Rock Warrior upgrade packages. Both were first introduced last year. Similarly, last year’s Platinum package is now this year’s Platinum trim level.
The 2013 Toyota Tundra has a rugged stance that’s complemented by sophisticated design cues. Among the highlights are a raised hood that flows into the truck’s trapezoid-shaped grille. As for the cab styles, Toyota provides a two-door Regular Cab, a Double Cab that adds two small, front-hinged rear doors and the CrewMax with four conventional doors. These mix and match with three wheelbases (126.8, 145.7 and 164.6) and three bed lengths (5 feet, 7 inches; 6 feet, 7 inches and 8 feet, 2 inches).
The Tundra comes with reflector-style halogen headlights, heated mirrors, daytime running lights and 18-inch styled steel wheels. The truck also can deliver a select group of upscale options. They include a power moonroof, fog lights, different-sized aluminum-alloy wheels and power-folding conventional or trailer mirrors with integrated turn signals. Package-based upgrades are another way to bring extra style to the Tundra.
The 2013 Tundra shows off a distinctive dashboard that’s separated into three levels. The driver’s side has a wide hood over the instrument panel and climate vents, with a border that puts the center stack on a different level. The stack flows out of the molded surface on the passenger’s side of the dash, which represents the third level. A 40/20/40 front bench seat is standard for the Tundra. The Double Cab and CrewMax models have 60/40 rear benches with either fold-up bottoms or, in the Platinum trim, a fold-flat seat back. CrewMax rear-seat passengers have an impressive 44.5 inches of legroom.
The base-model Tundra supplies more standard content than the entry-level work trucks from the domestic brands. This includes cloth upholstery, dual-zone air conditioning, power windows and power door locks. The Tundra also is available as a work truck, but this model requires a separate package that actually removes content. Other packages and the uplevel Tundra trims have the premium features. Among them are leather-trimmed seats, a heated and ventilated front row, dual-zone automatic climate control and a multifunction steering wheel with a power-adjustable column. Some rivals can offer even more luxury equipment, however.
There are three engine choices for the 2013 Toyota Tundra. The standard 4.0-liter V6 produces 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque. The Tundra’s mid-range engine, a 4.6-liter V8, makes 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque. A 5.7-liter V8 carries the most output. With 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque, this unit can tow a competitive 10,400 pounds. V6 models are equipped with a five-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. The V8 engines offer a standard six-speed automatic with rear- or all-wheel drive. All-wheel-drive models are equipped with an electronic limited-slip differential.
The most fuel-efficient Tundra powertrain, with a V6 engine, is rated at 16/20 mpg city/highway. The Tundra’s rivals can do better, especially on the highway.
The 2013 Tundra provides a fairly typical standard audio system. It includes a CD player, auxiliary input jack, AM/FM stereo and four speakers.
A rearview camera is standard with both of the Tundra’s uplevel navigation-based infotainment setups. These are available with 6.1- or 7-inch touch screens for six- or 12-speaker audio systems. In the latter case, the sound system is from JBL. The infotainment systems can bundle Bluetooth, satellite radio and traffic services, a USB port and access to mobile apps. A rear-seat DVD entertainment system is a notable standalone option.
"Excellent vehicle, great power, comfortable ride and extremely reliable. But if you're looking for fuel economy you better buy a Prius. "

"I bought the 2007 Tundra first. It was the style change that got me. With the new front look and the 5.7 engine it sold me right away. Loved the truck with no problems so I traded the 2007 in on the 2013. Love my Tundra." Read Less
