Off-road-oriented TRD Pro returns to 2019 Toyota Tundra lineup

Full-size pickup trucks are a mainstay, but where they once focused on work and utility, they now rival passenger cars for luxury, refined driving dynamics, and connectivity and entertainment options. While the big players, notably the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Ford F-150, and Ram 1500, have adopted these qualities, the 2019 Toyota Tundra is stuck in something of a rut. It lacks the sophistication of its key rivals, which makes it feel behind the times. That's obvious with the engine choices—the Tundra is only offered with a pair of V8s, a 4.6-liter with 310 hp and a 5.7-liter with 381 hp. They're undeniably powerful, but rivals now offer smaller, significantly more fuel-efficient engines without sacrificing power.

The Tundra also lacks features like trailer camera systems. Perhaps more significantly, the 2019 model doesn't offer Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ smartphone integration, which has become a minimum connectivity expectation. The Tundra isn't a bad truck. It's very capable in some areas, notably cabin space in both the double- and crew-cab (CrewMax) models, as well as towing ability and off-road performance with the TRD Pro trim, which returns for 2019 after a year hiatus. But the 2019 Tundra cannot offer the breadth of appeal of its rivals, and a long-awaited redesign doesn't come until 2022.
