Overview: Toyota’s Tundra remains an outlier in the full-size-pickup segment, a bit of an iconoclast’s choice compared with the entrenched domestic rigs from Chevrolet, Ford, and Ram. It is a nice product, however, with plenty of capability and a chunky, tough look. The truck’s primary weakness is in the low number of configurations offered, although this strategy makes sense given the Tundra’s minuscule relative sales numbers versus the segment leaders. Against the flood of different ways one can order an American truck, the Tundra offers a regular cab, a “Double Cab” extended cab, and a “Crewmax” four-full-door variant, each with a fixed bed choice except for the lower-grade Double Cabs, which are available in 6.6- and 8.1-foot lengths. The CrewMax can be paired only with the 5.6-foot bed, while the regular cab is long-bed only.
