Brawny 2017 Toyota Tundra has plenty of traditional appeal

There should be a 2017 Toyota Tundra to suit your full-size pickup needs. There are three cab types, three bed lengths, a pair of powerful V8 engines, a standard six-speed automatic transmission, rear-or four-wheel drive, and a trim lineup encompassing everything from a simple, inexpensive work truck with plastic bumpers and utility-focused interior trim to a lavishly equipped crew-cab model. Toyota even offers a TRD Pro model that gives the Tundra greater off-road ability with a raised suspension, skid plates, and off-road tires. The thing is, the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150, and Ram 1500 all offer the same breadth of choices and use newer platforms and more sophisticated suspensions to deliver better ride comfort and refinement. Their engines can also match and better the Tundra's performance while delivering better EPA-estimated fuel economy.

Against this kind of competition, the 2017 Tundra struggles to make a convincing case for itself. It's a pickup wedded to traditional rugged utility, and that's hardly surprising given the big Toyota's underpinnings were introduced back in 2007. But there's still a lot to like about the Tundra if a smooth-riding suspension and fuel economy are not your top concerns. It looks fantastic, and the interior, which is beyond spacious in double- and crew-cab forms, is laid out well. Equipment levels are also decent. Even so, we'd recommend trying out the Tundra's rivals before you commit, because you'll likely be better served elsewhere.
