2019 Toyota Tundra Review for Peoria, AZ Truck Shoppers

The 2019 Toyota Tundra is Always by Your Side

The Toyota Tundra full-size pickup is a common sight on jobsites, in driveways, and on trails--and for good reason. It's well-equipped, powerful, and most famously--incredibly reliable and long-lasting. The Toyota Tundra haws a reputation for extreme longevity, with at least one example of the legendary Tundra going for over 1,000,000 miles with no issues. The current 2019 Toyota Tundra lives up to the legend, featuring tried and true powertrains, styling, and construction--as well as a new standard safety suite. As always, the new Toyota Tundra pickup truck stands ready to get to work.

Tried and True Powertrains

The 2019 Toyota Tundra comes standard with a 4.6-liter i-FORCE motor, providing 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque. Mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, this powerplant produces the strength you need to tackle most jobs, including towing around 7,000 pounds. For those who need more power, the available 5.7-liter V8 motor ups your output to 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque, enough to take on up to 10,200 pounds of trailer. For those who need more versatility, the 5.7-liter i-FORCE is available with E85 Flex-Fuel compatibility.

All-Terrain Excellence

The new Toyota Tundra is well-suited to rough weather and rougher trails, thanks to its capable 4x4 systems, rugged construction, and standard limited-slip differential. This system ensures your engine power is always directed right to where it's needed, so you can cruise through most conditions with confidence and control.

The four-wheel-drive Toyota Tundra comes equipped with A-TRAC traction control, which uses a two-speed transfer case to gear your engine output to the off-road task at hand. Heavy duty frame and drivetrain components make sure your Toyota Tundra is tough and ready to rumble. The steering, braking, and acceleration are great when off the pavement, but it comes at the price of being a little less comfortable out on the interstate and around town.

The Toyota Tundra's TRD Pro package brings in the most off-road focused options, with TRD specific FOX® off-road shocks, eighteen-inch forged wheels, heavy-duty skid plates, foglights, custom exhaust, and unique styling.

The Toyota Tundra Exterior

The Toyota Tundra stands confidently, but it doesn't come off as overly aggressive. Tastefully placed chrome accents and your choice of cool, eye-catching, and classy color options make the Tundra one good-looking truck. A custom hood and unique trim set the TRD apart from the pack, speaking to its off-road abilities.

The Toyota Tundra Interior

Inside the Toyota Tundra you'll find a utilitarian cab with an array of comfort and convenience features. The Crew Max and the Double Cab offer spacious fold-up seating, so you've always got room for passengers or cargo. Up front you'll find supportive bucket seats and a convenient high-capacity center console with power outlet. You can select the seating that's right for your line of work with available perforated leather, cloth, and vinyl upholstery options.

Toyota Tundra Safety

Unlike many competitors, the new 2019 Toyota Tundra offers a suite of advanced safety systems that comes standard. The Toyota Safety Sense P system brings you Lane Departure Alert with Sway Warning System, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Automatic High Beams, and Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection. Also available is Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert. The Tundra also features smart driving technologies like Vehicle Stability Control, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Anti-lock Braking System, and Traction Control.

Toyota Tundra Tech

The Toyota Tundra offers you everything you need to get it done in comfort, with available heated seats, Bluetooth smartphone integration, satellite navigation, and JBL premium audio. However, the Toyota Tundra doesn't go much further than that, with a lack of features like Wi-Fi, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and wireless charging.

The 2019 Toyota Tundra Could Be the Perfect Tool for the Job

With a solid reputation, powerful standard engines, and a wide range of available configurations, the Toyota Tundra a good choice for job sites, off-road trails, and family life alike. Whether you choose long bed or short bed, Double Cab or Crew Max Cab, or four-wheel-drive or two-wheel-drive, the Toyota Tundra is the truck that will get it done for you every time.
