The Tundra is offered with a V-6 at the base level, but there's really no good reason to choose it instead of one of the available V-8 engines, which are far stronger and, at least for the smaller V-8, nearly as efficient.
by The Car Connection (Jul, 2013)
Overall, the Tundra feels light and precise and quick to take direction, and controls its body roll very well, especially for its size, though ride quality is choppy when the truck's running a light payload.

Reviews Word on the street for the Toyota Tundra


8.0
The V-8 Tundra is competitive, but V-6 versions aren't as frugal as the new generation of domestic V-6 trucks.

8.7
Trailer-sway control and brake override technology are standard.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Interior

And this year, a new Display Navigation with Entune system is optional on the Tundra, adding things such as Bluetooth music streaming, a backup camera, and voice controls.
by The Car Connection (Jul, 2013)
What makes all the design glitz and flexed muscles feel odd-in the truck as a whole-is that the cabin's so plain, and mostly ignores the rapid progress made by all of its competitors in terms of upholsteries and trims.
by The Car Connection (Jul, 2013)
At the same time the Tundra's cabin is split by an arc dividing driver controls from the rest of the cabin-a touch that seems too sporty and not hearty.
by The Car Connection (Jul, 2013)

Powertrain

It's a sharp, responsive engine, twisting out enormous torque just off idle, with the passing power to rival some luxury sedans, even when towing.
by The Car Connection (Jul, 2013)
There are no manual transmissions here; base Tundra pickups get a five-speed automatic, but you get a six-speed with V-8 versions; in either case it's a smooth-shifting, responsive transmission.
by The Car Connection (Jul, 2013)
Full-size truck shoppers are a spoiled lot, used to driving away in what's essentially a custom truck, with choices from a wide range of drivetrains, bed lengths, and cab styles.
by The Car Connection (Jul, 2013)

Engine

Performance is strong with either V-8 in the 2013 Toyota Tundra, and pricing is the only reason to get the V-6.
by The Car Connection (Jul, 2013)
This V-8's strength is its utterly smooth power delivery, however.
by The Car Connection (Jul, 2013)
With the available Tow Package-offered on all V-8 models-the Tundra can tow up to 10,400 pounds.
by The Car Connection (Jul, 2013)

Kind

The Tundra offers a choice of V-8s, with decent fuel economy for the class.
by The Car Connection (Jul, 2013)
Like last year, the Platinum gets the biggest V-8 and the four-door CrewMax body, adding on premium audio, a navigation system, a sunroof, wood trim, and ventilated front seats.
by The Car Connection (Jul, 2013)
If you opt for the most powerful Tundra with the 5.7-liter V-8, you'll see 14/18 mpg at best-that's with a 4x2 drivetrain.
by The Car Connection (Jul, 2013)

Styling

While all the visual heft is here, just as much as any other pickup, with lots of big sheetmetal panels and a grille big enough for a cookout, the pieces don't add up, and some of the Tundra's curves and sheetmetal bulges look more carlike than they ought to.
by The Car Connection (Jul, 2013)
Toyota made sure this Tundra wouldn't have sand kicked in its face by designing a big, brawny pickup that looks like it could bully any truck on the market — at least from the front.
by cars.com (Aug, 2012)
The Tundra looks buff and brawny, but it also looks like it's trying a bit too hard.
