2018 Toyota Tundra Review: Oldie But Goodie
– Miami, Florida
We’ve seen three sitting presidents and 18 different iPhones since the current Toyota Tundra platform was introduced in 2007. Relatively speaking, the full-size pickup is ancient. Its closest competitors – the Ram 1500, the Chevrolet Silverado, and the Ford F-150 – have all gained new platforms, added more efficient engines, and adopted high-strength aluminum body panels instead of heavy old steel.
Thankfully, we’ll see an all-new version of the pickup in 2019. Until then, the current model soldiers on. A modest refresh in 2014 added some new style to the exterior, as well as some helpful new amenities to the cabin. With that in mind, the Tundra remains a compelling outlier in a segment dominated by more modern American trucks, even if it isn’t brand new.
