New TRD Sport Styling

Toyota Racing Development (TRD) is one of the most revered names in performance. That is why the team at Toyota's exclusive in-house TRD facilities in North Carolina work tirelessly to ensure that every vehicle that carries the TRD badge is worth of the name. For 2018 the TRD Sport Package, features exclusive styling touches that include a powerful hood scoop and 20-inch alloy wheels with black-accent finishes. You'll know that the TRD Sport is more than just a pretty face because the honeycomb-style grille, color-keyed grille surround and hood scoop hint at the performance that lies inside. Every TRD Sport gets a unique suspension that includes TRD front and rear sway bars and Bilstein dampers. This helps to give the truck flatter cornering and a smoother ride. 

As the name suggests, the CrewMax prioritizes room for people. Its longer cab, larger rear doors and shorter 5.5-foot bed make for a limo-link 42.3 inches of rear seat legroom. Another bonus is all CrewMax models come standard with a power vertical sliding rear window.

Traction Galore
On Tundra 2wd models, the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) system integrates traction control that enhances on or off-road grip. The system also incorporates Automatic Limited-Slip Differential (Auto LSD), which provides better performance in deep sand or mud and on mixed-friction surfaces because it doesn't restrict engine power. Compared to a conventional mechanical limited slip differential, the Auto-LSD system is often more responsive and has better wear characteristics, since it utilizes the vehicles brakes to limit wheelspin.

Tundra 4x4 models use the on-demand, electronically controlled 4WDemand part-time 4WD system featuring a six-pinion planetary reduction gear set to provide 4x2, 4x4 Hi, and 4x4 Lo ranges. The driver selects the drive mode using a dial located on the dash. With 4wDemand, Active Traction Control (A-TRAC) operates like Auto-LSD, allowing full, unrestricted engine output, transferring power to the wheel with the most traction on both the front and rear axles.


Built to Tow
Towing claims can vary in the pickup truck realm Yet one towing standard certification - called the SAE  J2807 - stands out among the rest. The Toyota Tundra was the first to adopt this standard in 2011. With its standard Tow Hitch Receiver (new for 2017) and Tow Package (available on all grades), the 5.7-liter V8 Tundra offers a maximum certified tow capacity of up to 10,500 pounds (4x2 Regular Cab).

When equipped, the Tundra uses a one-piece towing receiver that utilizes 12 high-strength bolts, integrating it into the frame. The 5.7-liter's Tow Package upgrades Tundra's cooling and electrical systems as well. Integrated engine and transmission oil coolers, in conjunction with an added heavy-duty battery and alternator, help the powertrain handle the strenuous demands of towing under a full load. The Tow Package's selectable TOW/HAUL mode adjusts throttle sensitivity and transmission shift control, favoring and holding lower gears when accelerating or decelerating to help enhance control and safety.

A function of Vehicle Stability Control, Trailer Sway Control can counteract handling forces that can cause trailer sway to make towing safe. The Tundra also comes with an integrated Trailer Brake Contoller, and the driver can view its status on the multi-information display screen. All Tundra models come standard with a backup camera.

Toyota Safety Sense P


Toyota Safety Sense P combines an in-vehicle camera and front-grill mounted millimeter-wave radar for enhanced performance and more functionality. In addition to the three active safety technologies featured in the TSS-C package, TSS-P enhances the Pre-Collision System by adding a Pedestrian Detection function, enhances LDA by adding a Steering Assist function on certain models, and adds Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.

Ride in Style
With all of its inherent toughness, the Tundra treats its occupants with the sort of smooth ride and quite cabin that is most often associated with luxury sedans, not full-sized pickup trucks. Soft-touch surfaces, high granulated paint on the center cluster and unique seat stitching enhance interior quality and durability. Gauges are grouped in a clear, easy-to-see design, and there's a center-mounted multi-information display screen. The dash's large knobs can be operated while wearing gloves, and the console offers multiple storage areas for personal items and electronics.

The Limited grade adds leather-trimmed surfaces and wood-style interior trim. Amenities include dual zone air conditioning, a 10-way power driver seat and new for 2017, 4-way power passenger seat and available power tilt/slide moonroof with sliding sunshade (Crewmax only). The exterior wears chrome door handles and side mirrors, 20-inch alloy wheels and a versatile deck rail system.

American Roots

A dedicated team proudly assembles every Tundra in San Antonio, Texas. In fact, the 1794 Edition takes its name from the year the ranch on which the Toyota plant now sits was founded. Toyota is committed for the long haul to building the most capable full-size pickup truck on the planet. The journey continues to Michigan, where engineering teams work on the mighty Tundra. Because Michigan is home to some of the harshest conditions a truck could ever face, it allows engineering teams to make sure the Tundra can tackle everything that weekend, work site or your family can throw at it! Before it rolls down the assembly line or appears in our showroom, the Tundra is styled in California and Michigan. The Tundra was created with the American consumer in mind right from the start. Inspiration came from all over the nation in the design of the 2018 Tundra!
