2019 Toyota Tundra Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, And Photos

Posted on April 01, 2017 by Tanner Broadwell

The 2019 Toyota Tundra has been around for a while, as evidenced by its relatively limited feature set. We rate it at 5 out of 10, with a point above average for a wide range of trim levels that we dial back for the relatively spartan base trims. (Read more about how we rate cars.)

Don’t look for a 2019 Tundra priced below about $32,500. That’s for an extended-cab SR, which has active safety tech, power features, and a 6.1-inch touchscreen for infotainment.

The Tundra SR5 costs about $34,500 to start and is the gateway to more options and the popular crew-cab body style. It comes with chrome bumpers, upgraded infotainment software, intermittent wipers, and a few other features.

The Tundra Limited adds about $10,000 but is well-equipped with heated leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 5.7-liter V-8, a tow package, navigation, and a few other features.

For about $51,500, the Tundra Platinum and 1794 Edition trims have a similar feature set—softer leather, JBL audio, cooled front seats, 20-inch alloy wheels, and more—but different styling themes. The Platinum trim has a monochrome look with dark hues inside. The 1794 Edition is equipped the same but has southwestern-inspired trim colors. Its name signifies the year Spaniards first settled the Texas ranchland where Toyota now builds the Tundra.

The Tundra TRD Pro costs about $50,500 and includes Fox shocks, 18-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin all-terrain tires, LED headlights, skid plates, leather seats, and a moonroof. It’d be nice to see heated seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel for that kind of money, however.

No Tundra features Apple CarPlay or Android Auto compatibility, an absence hard to overlook in 2019.
