Vehicle Reviews: 2018 Toyota Tundra Review

Here at Washington Auto Mall, we carry a wide range of different trucks. However, few have proven to be as capable as the 2018 Toyota Tundra. With its enhanced engine and large technology array, it’s one of the safest and most comfortable trucks on the market.

In this review, we’ll show Washington, Canonsburg, and McMurray drivers exactly what they can expect from the 2018 Toyota Tundra. You can come and check out our inventory of 2017 Toyota Tundra models.

2018 Toyota Tundra Safety Features

While many trucks are built with some fairly rigid and enduring bodies, they may also tend to skimp in the technology department. The 2018 Toyota Tundra, however, packs in as many helpful gadgets as possible.

First and foremost, the Tundra comes with the Star Safety System. This suite includes some of your more standard safety features, such as Vehicle Stability Control and Traction Control. It also adds in Smart Stop Technology®, which maximizes the stopping power of your truck.

However, the most impressive safety features seem to come with Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P). This advanced system includes more intuitive safety features, such as the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection. This feature can autonomously hit the brakes for you to avoid collisions.

The 2018 Tundra also comes with available features like a front and rear parking assist sonar and a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. Both use cameras and sensors to monitor the road around you.

2018 Toyota Tundra Interior Design

When choosing the 2018 Tundra, you won’t just find safety technology. You’ll find plenty of entertainment technologies too, starting with Entune Audio Plus with the Connected Navigation App.

As you could probably guess, this version of Entune comes standard with GPS directions and traffic alerts. However, it also features a seven-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker audio system, and hands-free calls and texts.

Drivers can also make use of the included integrated backup camera. This feature may be especially helpful while you’re hauling cargo, as you might not be able to see behind your truck otherwise.

2018 Tundra Power & Performance Specs

Major performance is important in a truck of this size, and the 2018 Tundra shouldn’t let you down. The Tundra comes standard with a 4.6L i-FORCE V8 engine, which can generate up to 310 HP and 327 lb-ft of torque. That’s a lot of extra muscle, so you shouldn’t be surprised to learn that you’ll also be able to haul up to 6,800 pounds of cargo.

Rear-wheel drive also comes standard in the 2018 Tundra. To heighten your stability control, this system features an automatic limited slip differential. Pair that with the uphill/downhill sequential shift logic found in your six-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with intelligence, and you should have no problem staying on course.
