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.

Driving It

Straight from our full review of the 2017 Toyota Tundra: "On the road, we were pleasantly surprised by how quiet the Tundra’s cabin was, even at high speed. Off-road, our TRD Pro Off-Road 4x4 tackled all manner of steep grades, rutted trails and deep streams despite not having a locking rear differential."

Build and Price

2017 Toyota Tundra sticker prices start at under $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 2017 Toyota Tundra right here at KBB.com to unlock Fair Purchase Price, 5-Year Cost to Own and more.

Truck Talk

KBB.com visitor and Tundra owner Tim offers this opinion of the Toyota's half-ton truck: "I recently got my first Tundra, Ive wanted one for 10 years. Toyota quality is number one in my book. I dont think I will be trading this one in anytime soon. There are some things that should be looked at though. Gas mileage I feel like it could be a bit better, but then again I didnt buy it to get good gas mileage. Backseat I have the Crewmax which is huge and I love it, the only thing I wish was different was under the seat I wish the floor was flat and there wasnt a hump that was almost flush with the bottom of the seat." Read more consumer reviews of the Toyota Tundra.
