2013 Toyota Tundra Exterior

2013 Toyota Tundra Overview (See Available Styles)

Though it may not carry the panache of some its American counterparts, the 2013 Toyota Tundra is very capable, reliable, and rugged full-size pickup truck with one of the best V-8s in the business.

Like most other full-size pickups, the Tundra is available in a range of cab sizes and bed lengths. There are three different cabs: regular, Double Cab, and CrewMax. The CrewMax is the largest option, with full front and rear doors and only comes with a shorter, 5.5-foot bed. Both the regular and Double Cab are offered with either a 6.5-foot bed or an 8-foot long bed.

The 2013 Tundra is boldly styled up front, with a large front grille that covers up a massive front air intake. It’s a burly, strong look befitting a full-size pickup. 17-, 18-, or 20-inch wheels come at each corner; a power-sliding rear window and a power moonroof are optional. Available off-road packages each add their own pieces of flair to the Tundra.

Under the hood there are three available engines, one V-6 and a pair of V-8s. The standard engine is a 270-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 that makes 278 pounds-feet of torque and is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. Next up is a 310-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 with 327 pounds-feet of torque, which is topped by a 381-horsepower, 5.7-liter V-8 that delivers 401 pounds-feet of torque and superlative power/towing capacity. Both V-8s are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive is optional on V-8 models. Towing capacity maxes out at 9,000 pounds when properly equipped.

Inside, the 2013 Tundra has a flexible interior with plenty of different seating options. Up front, choose between a front bench and a pair of front bucket seats which change seating capacity between five and six passengers for Tundras with a second row. Standard features include dual-zone air conditioning, an abundance of storage options, heavy duty flooring, and power windows/locks.

There are also plenty of standard safety features, such as antilock brakes, electronic stability system, side-impact and side curtain airbags, and trailer-sway control. A backup camera is optional.
