Is the 2018 Toyota Tundra the Best Full-Size Truck for Me?

If you want a half-ton truck with good looks and an even better personality, we recommend taking the 2018 Tundra in Phoenix for a spin. Showing off new headlights and a revised grille, the bold and brawny pickup is sure to catch your eye when you see it on our lot.

However, it's what's beneath the surface that matters the most, and that's where this truck exceeds. With world-class engineering and a robust V8 engine, the Tundra will have you begging to sign the papers so you can call this beauty yours.

What Features Come on the 2018 Toyota Tundra?

Whether you're busy at work or heading up north for the weekend, you deserve to enjoy every minute spent behind the wheel! The 2018 Tundra is available in five trims--SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum and 1974 Edition--to help you achieve your Zen.

Notable standards include tailgate dampers, heated mirrors, a windshield wiper de-icer, a rearview camera, a six-speaker sound system, Bluetooth, a USB port and a 6.1-inch Entune touchscreen. However, that's only a small taste of what this half-ton pickup has to offer! Moving up the lineup, buyers can indulge in amenities such as HD and satellite radio, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, navigation. Heated/ventilated front seats and a 12-speaker JBL sound system.

There are also several packages to choose from, including the new TRD Sport. Well-loved by all the 2018 Tundra reviews, this package decks out the Tundra with LED headlights and foglights, a hood scoop, color-keyed mirrors and bumpers, 20-inch wheels, model-exclusive graphics and a sport-tuned suspension.

Which Engine Should I Choose for My 2018 Toyota Tundra?

The 2018 Tundra near me is offered with two different powertrains: a 4.6-liter V8 and a 5.7-liter V8. Both offer plenty of stamina, but the 5.7-liter is the one to choose for the most rugged capability. It produces a healthy 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque, and can tow up to 10,500 lbs. when properly equipped. 5.7-liter V8 models also come standard with a Tow Package, which adds a tow hitch receiver, an engine oil cooler, a transmission cooler, a heavy duty battery, an Integrated Trailer Brake Controller and a Tow/Haul transmission mode.

If your hauling requirements are more moderate, you may want to opt instead for the 4.6-liter V8. With 310 horsepower and 327 lb-ft of torque at its disposal, this version of the Tundra boasts an impressive 6,800-lb. maximum tow capacity.

Regardless of which engine you choose, a six-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive are standard. Four-wheel drive with a two-speed transfer case is optional.

Is Safety Sense Standard on the 2018 Toyota Tundra?

As you shop around for new half-ton pickups, you'll likely notice that very few competitors can match the Tundra's long list of safety features. New for 2018, all models of the Tundra are equipped with automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and a pre-collision system with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection at no extra cost.

Other standard safety gear includes eight airbags, antilock brakes, brake assist, trailer sway control and a tire pressure monitoring system.
