Vehicle Profile: 2018 Toyota Tundra

Sturdy meets stylish and safe in the new Toyota Tundra

The 2018 Toyota Tundra is a graceful heavy-duty option for those desiring a contemporary truck with maximum power and a fashionable profile.

Customized performance options

The new Toyota Tundra exudes power no matter the trim level. The brand caters to customers who desire both efficiency and potency. Select the lower two trims, SR or SR5, to experience 29 mpg on the highway.* Both of these trims deliver a healthy 310 horsepower and 327 lb-ft of torque.

For more thrust, opt for the upper three trim levels: Limited, Platinum or 1794 Edition. Equipped with a 5.7-liter V8 engine, these models surge with 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. This robust monster will leave you speechless while maintaining a majestic presence on the road.

Refreshed appearances

The 2018 Toyota Tundra manifests subtle cosmetic updates, but with such a quality model, who’s complaining? External makeovers include refreshed grille and headlight designs. Inside, the driver and passengers can delight in a larger 4.2-inch information display screen and a new gauge cluster, which makes accessing entertainment perks easier than ever.

The TRD Sport package provides customers with even more choices for customization. New to this model year, this offering features a color-keyed grille and body-colored front and rear bumpers as well as 20-inch alloy wheels. Midnight Black, Magnetic Gray and Super White are the available exterior colors and inside, passengers can enjoy TRD-branded floor mats, door sill protectors and gear shifter.

Advanced safety intelligence

All trim levels come standard with Toyota Safety Sense™-P for optimum protection for you and your passengers. Lane Departure Alert (LDA) warns the driver when the truck starts to drift outside of road lines—a helpful feature for drivers who need an extra boost in alertness for early morning or late-night hauls. Automatic High Beam (AHB) technology instinctively adjusts the vehicle’s headlights between high and low beams depending on the level of daylight it detects; it also dims the lights when it senses a passing vehicle.

Long drives are a breeze thanks to the Dynamic Radar Cruise Control mode. This function uses an in-vehicle camera and grille-mounted radar to automatically adjust the truck’s speed to make sure that it maintains a safe distance from the vehicle ahead of you. Pre-Collision system with Pedestrian Detection triggers the brakes when the technology picks up a potential impact, to help you avoid an accident.

Don’t settle for an average truck; enjoy heavy-weighted elegance and updated perks when you select the new Toyota Tundra.
