It’s not a segment leader for either towing or technology, yet the 2019 Toyota Tundra brings some important advantages. For example, the Tundra comes with safety features like automatic emergency braking as standard equipment. Toyota also offers dedicated off-road and luxury models.
A full-size pickup, the Tundra is available in two four-door cab styles, both of which can handle up to six occupants. The double cab has conventional doors in the front and smaller front-hinged doors in the rear. The CrewMax has four conventional doors and more cabin space.
The trim levels for 2019 are the SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition and TRD Pro. Toyota provides a V8 engine, rear-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission for the truck’s standard powertrain. Four-wheel drive is standard for the TRD Pro and optional for the other trims.
That TRD Pro has been a mainstay of the lineup for past model years but took 2018 off. It returns for 2019 with features like new high-performance shocks and forged-aluminum wheels. An SX package is new as well and bundles front bucket seats, black wheels and a color-keyed grille frame.
The 2019 Tundra has a bold and distinctive hexagon-shape grille that flows forward from a powerful raised hood. At the other end, the truck’s tailgate is set off by stylish carving along its lower edge. Each cab style can be matched with two cargo-bed sizes. Toyota offers 6’6” and 8’1” beds for the double cab, while 5’6” and 6’6” beds are available for the CrewMax.
Halogen headlights, LED accent lights, LED daytime running lights, heated mirrors, a damped tailgate and 18-inch styled steel wheels are all standard for the Tundra. The truck’s available equipment includes LED headlights, LED fog lights, a power moonroof, running boards, premium power-folding mirrors and 18- and 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. The TRD Pro model, and trucks with TRD option packages, show off features from the Toyota Racing Development team. Leading the way are a standard hood scoop, skid plates and all-terrain tires for the TRD Pro.
A symmetric dashboard design highlights the Tundra cabin. The actual center stack is relatively understated compared to what you see in typical trucks, but Toyota makes up for that with large vertical trim pieces that also incorporate the center climate vents. Bench seats are standard fore and aft for both Tundra cab styles. The second rows in each version have a standard 60/40-split and flip-up bottoms for under-seat storage.
Although many brands offer a “work truck” entry model with a very basic level of equipment, the Tundra comes standard with cloth upholstery, power accessories, air conditioning and a tilt-adjustable steering wheel. Vinyl upholstery is optional for the job site, and upscale amenities available for comfort. This includes leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front bucket seats, a 12-way power-adjustable driver’s chair, dual-zone automatic climate control, woodgrain accents and a leather-trimmed steering wheel with a power-adjustable column.
The Tundra has a standard 4.6-liter V8 that makes 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque. With the optional 5.7-liter V8, the truck serves up 381 horsepower, 401 pound-feet of torque and a maximum tow rating of 10,200 pounds. Rear-wheel drive and a six-speed transmission are standard with both engines. All trim levels are available with four-wheel drive except the TRD Pro, which gets it as standard equipment. That model also gets standard performance enhancers such as a TRD-tuned suspension and Fox shock absorbers at all four corners.
The Tundra’s fuel economy ratings are low for the segment. The standard model checks in with EPA grades of 15/19 mpg city/highway.
Standard technology for the Tundra includes adaptive cruise control, automatic forward emergency braking, automatic high beams, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane keeping assistance, pedestrian detection and a rearview camera. For infotainment, a 6.1-inch touchscreen is standard with Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free, an AM/FM stereo, CD player, USB/auxiliary connections and six speakers.
The Tundra is available with a blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert and front and rear parking sensors, too. A navigation system, 7-inch touchscreen, HD Radio, satellite radio and a 12-speaker JBL sound system are a few of the truck’s popular infotainment options.
"Ac is making noise at 6,000 miles. The truck tows horrible good luck when you hit the breaks with a trailer behind you in an emergency situation. Every speed bump or pot hole it hit the trucks rear end goes side to side. It doesn't tell you how many miles you have left when gas light comes on.It has to many limiters on it. Gas mileage is horrible."
"Very pleased with the Tundra. The power train is SO SMOOTH. Ride is outstanding. Turning radius is small making parking easy. Has most of the safety features of wife's lexus and they work similar so moving between vehicles is easy."
Very comfortable. Well designed. Only gripe is lack of storage in back for typical truck junk. Info screen/system works very well. Audio with iPhone is sub par. Interestingly voice recognition works better on tundra than lexus. Parking assist is easy to turn off and forget to turn on when you back up a trailer. Needs better indication of Off status. Hate the old style Key. Should have a keyfob and push button.
Easy to wash and stays clean
Tows heavy trailer easily. Power train is obviously highly refined and silky smooth.
Roomy and comfortable back seats.
Fuel economy is 16.5 combined in actual driving and 17.5-18 on Hwy. But that is only one part of cost. Lower sticker price than others, lower maintenance cost and higher resale on back end. All worth more than a couple of MPG in my opinion.
"I love my Tundra! Lots of space, great reliability, looks awesome, comes with unexpected extras like 3M tape and quality floor mats!
Had to upgrade tires of course and added a rack for a roof top tent.
Awesome unit!" Read Less

Awesome Truck, Buggy Entune System
"This truck is awesome. Local and Highway driving comfort. Spacious. Comfortable. Would be 5 of 5 stars if the Entune system wasn't so buggy. "
Spacious. Comfortable. Unfortunately the buggy Entune system is a distraction.
