2010 - 2013 Toyota Tundra Truck

An all-new Tundra truck will be available for 2014, so don't expect to see many additions to the 2013 version. In fact, Tundra pickups haven't changed significantly since 2013. Let's take a look at some of the 2013 Tundra truck features and specs:

Tundra trucks are available in two different 'grades,' the basic Tundra grade and the higher-end Limited. You can still choose from three cab styles within each grade, a regular (without rear seating), a double cab (with rear seats) and the most spacious Tundra, called the CrewMax.

Long bed and short bed trucks are available, and lengths depend on the body style you choose -- CrewMax Tundra trucks have the shortest bed, measuring 66.7 inches in length.

Tundra Powertrain

  • A 4.0 liter V6 (270 horsepower and 278 pound feet of torque) is Tundra's base engine, and comes standard with a 5 speed automatic transmission. This V6 has enough power to haul a 1,450 pound payload, or tow a 4,500 pound trailer. Fuel economy estimates are 16 mpg city and 20 mpg on the highway. The V6 is not available on four wheel drive Tundra trucks.

  • A 4.6 liter V8 engine (310 horsepower 327 pound feet of torque) can only be combined with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy ratings sit at 15 city and 20 highway for 2WD trucks and 14 city vs. 19 highway for 4WD pickups.

  • Tundra's most powerful engine is a 5.7 liter V8, available only with the 6-speed automatic transmission. The engine puts out 381 horsepower and 401 pound feet of torque and can tow up to 10,400 pounds. Fuel economy ratings are lower, 14 city and 18 highway for 2WD models and 13 city vs. 17 highway for 4WD trucks.

2013 Tundra Pricing

Suggested retail pricing for regular cab Tundra trucks starts at $25,455, and jumps to $27,665 for double cabs; the base price for a CrewMax Tundra is $30,635.
