The Toyota of Full-Size Trucks
If you're one of the Big Three (Ford, General Motors and Chrysler), you don't have much trouble moving your full-size truck offering thanks to the cult-like following you've built up over the last five decades. What if you're not one of the aforementioned Detroit-based automakers, though? Toyota is in the latter group but many people may not know that the Tundra is, in fact, built right here in the United States. Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Texas was established back in 2003 and today manufactures both the full-size Toyota Tundra and midsize Tacoma trucks.
For 2018, the Tundra sees some changes to its lineup. The regular cab has been dropped, as has the TRD Pro. However, there's a new TRD Sport model. Also, there are styling updates inside and out, and the Safety Sense-P safety suite of features is standard on all Tundras.
Straight from our full review of the 2018 Toyota Tundra: "On the road, the Tundra surprised us with its quiet cabin and pleasant road manners. Off-road, the TRD Sport 4x4 showed it has what it takes to tackle rugged terrain, steep hills and fast-moving creeks, despite the absence of a proper locking rear differential."
Build and Price
2018 Toyota Tundra sticker prices start at just over $32,000 -- for the only 1/2-ton that comes standard with a V8 -- and top out at over $53,000. Build and price your own 2018 Toyota Tundra right here at KBB.com to unlock Fair Purchase Price, 5-Year Cost to Own and more.

KBB.com visitor and Tundra owner Bearcat offers this opinion of the Toyota's half-ton truck: "A good truck that can handle a 20 foot gooseneck trailer with ease. Fuel mileage must be improved to compete with the competition. 4WD is easy to engage and disengage. The best feature of the truck is its ride; a smooth comfortable ride better than many automobiles."
