The Toyota Tundra has become one of the biggest competitors to US manufactured pickup trucks, and if you’ve owned one then you know exactly why. The aggressive styling of the Tundra along with the power options has helped make it one of the best-selling trucks in markets worldwide. The 2018 Toyota Tundra will look to improve upon the best and worst of what we’ve seen in the current model while once again competing with the likes of Ford, Dodge, and Chevy.
The 2018 Tundra is already being leaked as a refined version of the 2017 model, which is a great news for consumers. One of the biggest faults of the current model is the poor fuel efficiency which sounds to be a thing of the past. Other rumours suggest we’ll see a slight redesign to the Tundra’s exterior along with a refined interior giving it a much-needed upgrade.
The following 2018 Toyota Tundra preview takes a closer look at the specs, features, price, and release date for all models including the SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition, and TRD Pro models.
2018 Toyota Tundra Specs and Features – SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition, and TRD Pro Models
With plenty of models to choose from, there will be a wide array of 2018 Toyota Tundra specs and features to choose from. The aggressive styling and power options will be seen across all models while we’ll also see an upgrade on the interior and exterior. Rumours suggest a makeover will be seen on the inside including a better-looking instrument panel, more comfortable seating, and more legroom for rear passengers.
The new Tundra is also expected to be significantly lighter which should improve the fuel economy. This has been one of the biggest faults with previous models as we’re likely to see at least 16/MPG city and 19MPG/highway. This will be comparable with other full-size pickups such as the Dodge Ram, Ford F150, and the 2018 Chevy 1500.
The 2018 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro model will bring back that sporty attitude which will be seen in the lower profile, dual exhaust, premium front and rear shocks, aluminium skid plate, and other optional features. The TRD Pro which was engineered for the US consumer will once again make the best of all worlds when it comes to power, comfort, and utility.
The engine specs are being rumoured which includes a 4.6 litre and powerful 5.7-liter engine which will give you at least 310 and 385-hp respectively. The 6 speed automatic and auto-manual transmission will compare with previous models.
