2018 Toyota Tundra Pricing Hits the Web
New pickup has minor changes but will still appease drivers that liked previous gen’s no-frills approach.
The 2018 Toyota Tundra is one of the most anticipated trucks to come out of the automaker’s stable. The current generation of the Tundra is getting a little long in the tooth and aging rapidly, as it was first introduced in 2007. The new model, the 2018 Tundra, wears some minor updates, and now, thanks to a press release, we know the price of the new truck.
According to a press release outlining the Japanese automaker’s pricing for its entire fleet of 2017 to 2018 model year vehicles, the new Tundra SR 4×2 with a regular cab and 5.7-liter V8 will start at $30,500 (all prices don’t include the $1,195 destination fee). That’s an increase of approximately $380 over the current model. Pricing for a top-trim SR 4×4 double-cab model with a 5.7-liter V8 comes in at $34,770, or $225 more than the outgoing truck.
While these prices appear to be true, it’s important to note that Toyota’s pricing guide states these are figures for the 2017 model. But we have to point out that Toyota’s website has a different figure for 2017 models, leaving us to believe that the automaker wants to keep things hidden in plain sight for a later time.
So what does the new pricing bring with it? Not much besides a simple facelift. The engines are carried over from the previous model, as do the trims. As PickupTrucks.com points out, the enormous 38-gallon fuel tank is still an optional extra on the Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition and TRD Pro trims, while the truck’s towing capability has gone unchanged at 10,500 pounds.
Is the 2018 Tundra worth the extra bit of cash? We think so. But let us know what you think in the comments below.
