In effect, the 2018 Toyota Tundra is future proof. Sure, the trades, hauling, and off roading haven’t changed much in 50 years, but new conveniences and technology can save you a lot of time and effort. That’s why the Tundra comes available with a backup camera, easy lower and lift tailgate, bed rail tie down system, and the capability to upfit with enterprise friendly Toyota accessories.
We encourage your to make the most informed decision and test drive the Tundra against its direct competitors from Chevy, Ford, Ram, and Nissan. You’ll come away impressed—and likely with a new or certified used Tundra pickup, too. Don’t waste another minute getting a lesser vehicle to the work of a Tundra.

2018 Toyota Tundra Capability
The 2018 Toyota Tundra is a big truck that delivers on big expectations. For conventional hauling and urban projects, the new Tundra comes standard with a not-so-standard suspension setup that includes double wishbone components with coil springs, gas shocks, stabilizer bars, and heavy duty multi leaf springs out back. And if you anticipate driving off the beaten path, the 2018 Toyota Tundra can be ordered with the TRD Offroad Package, which includes Bilstein shocks that automatically adjust damping based on speed and terrain. Whichever model you select, the Tundra is a sure footed and comfortable ride both on and off the road.
2018 Toyota Tundra Performance
Everything about the 2018 Toyota Tundra is effortless. The standard across the range Super SCT 6-speed automatic transmission gives you smooth shifting going uphill, downhill, or with a heavy trailer hooked up behind you. When you need to stop in a hurry, the new Tundra comes with gigantic 13.9″ 4 piston brake calipers. And were you wondering what’s happening under the hood? Here’s a run down:
- 4.6L iForce V8: 310 hp, 327 lb-ft of torque, and 16.3 L/100km combined fuel economy
- 5.7L iForce V8: 381 hp, 401 lb-ft of torque, and 14.9 L/100km combined fuel economy
2018 Toyota Tundra Interior
Purpose, meet practicality. The 2018 Toyota Tundra comes with clever design features that will seem obvious and intuitive when you use them, but will leave you spoiled should your drive someone else’s truck. Better just stick to a Toyota, then! For example, the Tundra’s audio, towing, and climate control dials are large and grippy, making them a breeze to use with work gloves on. Furthermore, in Double Cab and CrewMax configurations, the rear seats fold up, leaving you abundant space for a large, locking toolbox or other supplies. And if your 2018 Toyota Tundra does double duty as a luxury commuter, you’ll want to step up to the plush and inviting 1794 Edition. Here you’ll find western themed appointments like saddle tan leather, suede inserts, maple woodgrain trim, and soft touch, stitched materials on the centre console, dash, and arm rests.
