2015 Toyota Tundra has old-school pickup appeal

Toyota overhauled the Tundra's looks inside and out for 2014 and revised the lineup for 2015. The base 4.0-liter V6 is no more, leaving just a pair of V8s (4.6-liter and 5.7-liter) to power the Tundra. There's a new off-road-focused model, too. The TRD Pro adds an off-road optimized suspension with 2-inch lifted Bilstein shocks, skid plates, and off-road tires. It's just one of the many choices available with the 2015 Tundra, which like all its rivals is offered with three cab types, two wheelbases, and a trio of bed lengths. Trim choices are extensive, with the SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition, and the TRD Pro. The trims are limited to particular cab types. The SR trim is available in regular (two-door) or double-cab form, and the SR5 and above require a double-cab or crew-cab (CrewMax) body style. There's plenty of choice—and potential for confusion—but that's true of all the Tundra's rivals. The appeal is in being able to tailor your large pickup to an intended role—work, play, or a mixture of both.

Despite a pair of powerful V8s and a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission, the Tundra feels cumbersome compared with the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150, and the Ram 1500. It hauls, though, and its towing ability is up there at the top, while standard equipment is decent across the range. The sharp looks might be enough to appeal to many, but, if you're considering the Tundra, we'd recommend checking out the competition, too.

Interior details

The interior of the 2015 Toyota Tundra is roomy and comfortable. The Regular Cab Tundra, available on SR and SR5 trims, has seating for three and a fold-down center console. The larger cabs—Double Cab and CrewMax—have seating for six, except on the TRD Pro trim, which has bucket front seats and seating for five. Double Cab and CrewMax models have rear climate controls and cup holders to keep back seat passengers comfortable. The Tundra has some chrome accents beginning at the SR5 trim. Opt for the Limited trim for wood accents, or choose the Platinum or higher trims for luxuries like a moonroof and ventilated seats.

Child seat details

The 2015 Toyota Tundra can be car seat friendly, especially if you choose a CrewMax model. CrewMax and Double Cab models have two sets of LATCH anchors as well as rear car seat tethers. You'll likely be able to fit three car seats in the rear of the Tundra if needed. However, since the CrewMax has more legroom, it's better for rear-facing car seats. The Regular Cab Tundra does not have a rear seat.
