Overview

What's New

The 2021 Toyota Tundra welcomes two new special editions to the lineup: the menacing Nightshade and a wilderness-ready Trail Edition. No number of limited editions can hide the Tundra’s age, which is considerable – Toyota’s full-size truck has soldiered on mostly unchanged since 2007. An all-new Toyota Tundra is expected to (finally) debut next year.

Choosing Your Toyota Tundra

The Tundra keeps the same six trims as last year: SR, SR5, Limited, TRD Pro, Platinum, and 1794 Edition. Pricing starts at $35,270 including destination for the base SR and climbs to $54,390 for the range-topping 1794 Edition.

Engine Choices

Last year, the Tundra saw its engine lineup cut down to a single option. Luckily, the 5.7-liter V8 makes a healthy 371 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. Properly equipped, the Tundra can tow up to 10,200 pounds.

If a big V8 sounds old-fashioned, wait until you see the gas mileage. Even with rear-wheel drive, the EPA estimates that the Tundra gets only 13 miles per gallon city, 17 mpg highway, and 15 combined. The combined figure drops to 14 with all-wheel drive. The Tundra can go almost anywhere, but be prepared to stop for gas often.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Tundra has two cab options, extended and crew. Both seat a maximum of six passengers, but the crew cab is substantially more comfortable for second-row passengers.

The extended cab trades that leg room for more bed space, with a 6.5-foot box to the crew’s 5.5-foot bed. On the SR trim, the extended cab is also available with an 8.1-foot box. Payload capacity tops out at 1,730 pounds.

Safety Features

The Tundra may be old, but it’s a safety standout by pickup truck standards. Toyota brings some of its best tech, with standard automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams. That’s an excellent set of features, especially compared to American rivals.

Blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and front and rear parking sensors are standard on the Platinum, and available on the SR5 and Limited.

Connectivity

In SR trim, the Tundra starts with a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. SR5 trucks and upward get a larger 8-inch system with extra connectivity options.

Navigation and Amazon Alexa become standard on the Limited, while the TRD Pro adds a JBL audio system to the equipment list.

Toyota Tundra

SR - From $35,270

The Tundra SR is more than a work truck, but only just. Seats are upholstered in fabric or vinyl, and aside from keyless entry and a federally-mandated backup camera, there are no bells or whistles to speak of. The SR is only available with an extended cab, though it comes in two bed lengths.

SR5 - From $39,565

For a relatively modest price jump, the SR5 adds a tilt-and-telescope steering wheel and the larger infotainment screen. On the outside, the SR5 gets 18-inch wheels, fog lights, and heated side mirrors.

More importantly, the SR5 trim opens up a wealth of options. It’s available with either extended or crew cabs, in either front- or all-wheel drive. Replacing the front bench with bucket seats requires the SR5 Upgrade Package ($945), which also includes a larger 38-gallon gas tank.

The SR5 also unlocks several TRD packages, which range from $3,645 to $6,605 depending on cab, powertrain, and options. These bundles add Bilstein shocks tuned for either performance or off-roading, plus sway bars, skid plates, tow hooks, and LED head and fog lights. Most also include a few creature comforts like premium sound or remote start.

Finally, the SR5 is available in this year’s limited Trail Edition. It’s mostly an aesthetic package, but it also adds lockable bed storage and all-terrain tires, in addition to all the features in the SR5 Upgrade Package. Prices start at $4,000.

Limited - From $47,035

The Tundra Limited pushes toward luxury territory in both features and price. The exterior gets chrome accents, 20-inch wheels, and LED lighting. Inside, seats are trimmed in leather, the front seats are heated, and dual-zone automatic climate control comes standard.

The Limited trim is the basis for the new Nightshade Edition ($2,850). This special edition includes the moonroof but is primarily about looks: black alloy wheels, black mirror caps, black leather trim, and … you get the idea.

TRD Pro - From $50,370

The TRD Pro is aimed at off-road enthusiasts, with everything you could need to venture far from the beaten path like standard all-wheel drive. That means a 2-inch suspension lift, tuned Fox shocks, and 18-inch forged aluminum wheels. Bucket seats are upholstered in black leather, and the moonroof comes standard.

Platinum - From $50,490

The Platinum brings all the luxury Toyota can muster. That means an interior swathed in soft leather, heated and ventilated front seats, audio from JBL, and a smart key system. All the tech and convenience features from lower trims are standard here.

Only two things are left to add: the power moonroof ($850), and a spray-on bedliner for another $795.

1794 Edition - From $54,390

The 1794 Edition is essentially a variant of the Platinum trim, and feature-wise the two are identical. The 1794 adds a few aesthetic touches of its own, including wood-grain-style interior accents, 1794 badging, and extra chrome.

CarsDirect Tip

The top trims can only do so much to dress up the outdated interior of the 2021 Toyota Tundra. The SR5 is the best value in the range, and the TRD Pro is a worthy choice for trail warriors.

Safety is a mixed bag. We applaud Toyota for taking the lead in supplying automatic emergency braking as standard equipment on the 2021 Toyota Tundra. Some competitors don't even offer this feature. Add in the standard automatic high beams and adaptive cruise control, and the Tundra should win the segment on standard driver assist safety tech alone.

But safety goes beyond the features that help mitigate an accident. Indeed, how the Tundra holds up in a crash is telling. Unfortunately, the NHTSA only awards a four-star overall safety rating, including three stars for rollover.

The Tundra’s aged design is a contributing factor here. The current model rolled out in 2008 and has only undergone light changes since. Competing models from the domestics and Nissan are far newer.

Big burly V8. Like Nissan, Toyota offers just one engine choice with the Tundra. Last year, the automaker dropped its standard 4.6-liter V8, making the 5.7-liter V8 the only choice. This engine develops 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. While not the strongest in the segment, it’s the right fit here.

The only thing that seems out of place is the transmission. This one is a six-speed automatic and that’s two to four few cogs fewer than every competitor. That translates into less-than-ideal fuel economy, not that any large pickup truck powered by a big V8 does great. The Tundra trails the competition with an EPA-estimated 13 miles per gallon city, 17 mpg highway, and 15 combined.

Towing capacity reaches 10,200 pounds and payload of up to 1,730 pounds is possible. Both numbers are very good. Taking the TRD Pro off-roading is a blast. It just won’t keep up with models from Ford and Ram.


Toyota Tundra

Styling that once was. When the current-generation Tundra rolled out in 2008, we applauded Toyota for its muscular visage and handsome interior. Immediately, it made the Tundra a formidable competitor to the domestics. We expected great things, but not much has changed since.

In 2014, Toyota tweaked the Tundra, assigning separate grille designs to each trim. Since then, the Tundra lost its single cab and two of its three engines. Yet, its overall styling remains the same, even as the domestics move forward with newer and more modern vehicles. Put the current Ram 1500 next to the Tundra and the differences are evident. One shows its age, while the other has a fresh layout.

Inside, the Tundra’s cabin is huge. It was one of the largest available early on, but the domestics have caught up. We’re not complaining – simply, Toyota lost one of the few advantages it held early on. Otherwise, the cabin looks dated, reflecting a design that was conceived 15 years ago.

Decent creature comforts. The basic SR trim comes with full power accessories, a 7-inch touchscreen, six audio speakers, Bluetooth, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity, and three USB charge ports. Its infotainment system is good, but not great.

Move up to the SR5 and that’s where a crew cab option comes in. You’ll also gain an 8-inch touchscreen, nine speakers (seven in the double cab), HD radio, and satellite radio. Further up the trim steps the Tundra gains a 12-speaker audio system and navigation.

There aren’t many options available. Competing models offer a better work truck experience with wireless charging available. The Tundra does include wi-fi connectivity, so that’s a positive point we like.

Final thoughts. The 2021 Toyota Tacoma is the better of the brand's two trucks and might be enough to satisfy some pickup shoppers. If you need a large truck, the Tundra is clearly a few steps behind the competition.

On the other hand, when fully loaded, you’ll pay thousands of dollars less than the best models from Chevrolet, Ford, and Ram.
