The 2018 Toyota Tundra isn’t quite as up-to-date or fuel-efficient as some of its rivals, but it brings its own unique benefits to the segment. These include an all-V8 engine lineup with plenty of towing power and an impressive package of standard safety technologies.
The Tundra is a full-size pickup with seating for up to six. For 2018, the truck is offered in SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum and 1794 Edition trims. Rear-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission are standard, and four-wheel drive is optional.
For 2018, the Tundra gets new design details up front and an expanded list of standard safety features. The truck also ushers in the TRD Sport package, which brings chassis upgrades and unique exterior styling cues.
Though most full-size pickups offer a two-door regular cab, the Tundra has eliminated that rarely ordered body style and is available as a double cab, with two full-size front doors and two smaller rear doors, and in a CrewMax setup with four full-size doors. Customers can choose from three bed sizes: 5.5-foot, 6.5-foot and 8.1-foot. In all cases, the truck showcases a typical pickup-style shape, but with eye-catching details like swept-back headlights and an air intake built into the leading edge of the hood.
Standard features include halogen headlights, LED accent lights, LED daytime running lights, 18-inch steel wheels, heated power-adjustable exterior mirrors and a damped tailgate. Options include LED headlights, LED fog lights, a power moonroof, 18- and 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, exterior chrome accents and power-folding exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals.
The 2018 Toyota Tundra has an attractive, symmetrically designed dashboard with bold metallic trim on each side of the center stack and a variety of available soft-touch surfaces and accent pieces. The truck competes well as far as interior dimensions go. The rear seats for both cabs are available with flip-up seat bottoms for extra storage.
Standard features include air conditioning, cloth upholstery, a 40/20/40-split folding front bench seat, a tilt-adjustable steering column and power windows and door locks. Options include leather upholstery, heated bucket seats up front, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s chair, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a tilt-and-telescoping steering column and dual-zone automatic climate control.
The Tundra’s engine lineup provides lots of power. Base models come with a 4.6-liter V8 good for 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque. Step up to the optional 5.7-liter V8 and you’ll get 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. The standard Tundra powertrain features a six-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. Four-wheel drive is available, and package upgrades bring in sport-tuned Bilstein shock absorbers.
EPA ratings for the 2018 Tundra top out at 15/19 mpg city/highway. This Toyota can tow up to 10,200 pounds.
An important highlight for the Tundra is a standard safety package that combines adaptive cruise control, lane-departure alert, automatic high beams and a forward collision mitigation system with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection. The list of standard features also includes a rearview camera, a 6.1-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth for handsfree calling and audio streaming, voice recognition, an auxiliary audio jack, an iPod-compatible USB port, Siri Eyes Free compatibility and six audio speakers.
The Tundra’s list of available amenities includes a blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, parking sensors, a 7-inch touchscreen, integrated navigation, access to smartphone-style apps, HD radio, satellite radio and premium JBL audio.

User Reviews for 2018 Toyota Tundra
by Kenneth on June 1, 2020
Gas Mileage and internal
"1st When pulling any size trailer behind this truck is a waste of gas money. Getting 5 to 7 mpg kills your hopes of pulling anything large.
Wish Toyota would come out with a diesel engine to make up for these issue.
2nd The seats stain easily even with a simple drop of water that drips off your drink. I have cleaned the seats many times and the next time someone spills a drink or something. That will be a new stain."

Truck always looks good
Gas mileage sucks
We have used this truck many times to take trips to PA to see family.
"Loved the leather seats, the roll down back window, and how it drove. The dealership offered a fair trade, so I upgraded to the “top of the line” Tundra, the 1794 edition. More bells and whistles than the Limited! Did I NEED or want to trade? Not really, but why not?"
Soft leather in two tone grays. NICE! This was my second Tundra, having owned a 2010 SR model “double cab” w/ 4.3 liter. This DEFINITELY has more room front and back and LOTS more get up and go.
Fuel economy stinks, but it performs excellently!
Lots of back seat leg room & USB outlets for kids’ electronics. Rear vent for HVAC as well.
Wish it got a bit better gas mileage, but it’s a trade off for performance and tow abilities.
