2015 Toyota Tundra Overview
The 2015 Toyota Tundra is a full-size pickup truck that is as capable as its reputation implies. It's strong and surprisingly nimble, and can fit a lot of cargo in its truck bed or passenger seat. After a major facelift a year prior, this iteration of the Tundra has been updated again to be stronger and more durable in off-roading situations.
2015 Toyota Tundra History
Toyota gave the Tundra a facelift in 2014.
For this model year, Toyota removed the V6 engine option.
The Tundra was introduced in 1999.
The Tundra was nominated for the North American Truck of the Year award.
How It Drives
The Toyota Tundra looks and drives like a goliath. Its sheer size dwarfs many of its occupants, implying that the vehicle may feel heavy and difficult to control. This is not the case - while it doesn't lead its class segment in terms of horsepower, it feels nimble with its V8 engine. Both engines will be adequate for most towing situations, but may not be the best in terms of fuel efficiency. The steering is accurate and feels well-weighted behind the wheel. Though it may not be able to cruise smoothly or quietly, the Tundra should feel roomy to its passengers. Notably, the 2015 Toyota Tundra's new trim level ensures that it's very capable for off-roading.
Used 2015 Toyota Tundra Value
The 2015 Toyota Tundra is a pretty serious contender against other full-size pickup trucks. Though not as well-known as the Ford F-150, it does boast strong off-road performance over its rival. It can be highly customized based on preference - it has six trim levels, three cabin styles, and three bed sizes. Its V8 engines are very powerful, and the body style ensures that passengers are just as comfortable as the driver.
Design & Performance
The Toyota Tundra comes in three body styles: the two-door Regular Cab, four-door extended Double Cab, and the four-door Crewmax. The Crewmax stands out for being able to seat up to six people. The Toyota Tundra has six trim levels:
The entry-level SR is remarkably well-equipped for being the baseline Tundra. It has keyless entry, power accessories, and Bluetooth connectivity.
The Tundra SR5 builds upon the Double Cab or Crewmax Tundra with higher-quality body parts, fog lights, and a high-resolution, seven-inch touchscreen display. It can be upgraded to add bucket seats to the front row.
The Limited trim is available for Double Cab and Crewmax Tundras. It's a bit more upscale than the SR5, with bucket seats, a leather steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and an app suite that integrates with its touchscreen.
Only available for Crewmax Tundras, the Platinum trim level has the biggest wheels and the most comfortable driver's seat.
The 1794 Edition Tundra is only available in Crewmax. It recolors the interior with saddle-brown leather upholstery and a suede trim.
This is the first model year with the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro. This trim level improves the Tundra's off-road durability and performance.
Powertrain & Engine
Toyota Tundras are very powerful vehicles. New for 2015, all trim levels are built with a V8 engine. As a result, Tundra vehicles are very fuel efficient; they are large, heavy vehicles that use their power handling heavy cargo. Between the 4.6L V8 engine and the 5.7L V8 engine, the Tundra will have no problem accelerating when the bed is empty - it's much faster than others in the full-size truck segment. Tundras are built with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive depending on preference.
Body Style & Interior Comfort
Across all trim levels, body styles can be configured with two wheelbases and six bed lengths: 5.5 ft short bed, 6.5 ft standard, and 8.1 ft long bed. The interior is more comfortable than you'd expect in a truck. Depending on its body size, it may even be roomy.
The dials and buttons are well-organized and simple to understand. The touchscreen is intuitive and functional.
The Tundra SR's materials and build quality are passable, but higher trim levels remedy that with higher-quality materials.
The Crewmax has massive headroom and legroom, especially in the back row.
Drivers on the hunt for a used truck should consider the Toyota Tundra, especially the 2016 Tundra and the 2017 Tundra. This big pickup comes in plenty of sizes that have given owners the ability to haul passengers and equipment, on and off the road, for close to 20 years.
