The 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax was released in July 2020 and carries the same specs as 2020. It is offered in 4 trims, namely SR5, Limited, Platinum, and 1794 Edition. The prices for the 2021 Crewmax begin from $37,970 with the SR5 trim, and go up to $48,895 with the Platinum and 1794 Edition trim. This does not include the destination fees of $1,595. New changes for this year are the Nightshade appearance package for the Limited trim, and the Trail Special Edition that is based on the SR5 trim for a limited production run for 5000 units only with elements borrowed from the 1794 Edition.

Powered by a big-block 5.7L V8 under the hood, there is also a full-blown 4x4 off-roader TRD Pro model of the 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax. While it's easy to pick up a used Tundra Crewmax for sale, you can also consider leasing it since it costs $339/month to lease it at a $0 downpayment. Unlike its competitors like the Ford F-150 Supercrew, RAM 1500 Crew Cab, and the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab that offer at least 2 bed sizes, the 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax comes with a single short bed size of 5.5-feet which allows the truck to offer a towing capacity of 10,100 lbs at its best.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

Overall Rating


The oldest truck on the market, but still a diligent and capable offering for its price.- Car and Driver

Released in July 2020, the 2021 Tundra Crewmax has been available for sale in a total of 4 trims, namely SR5, Limited, Platinum, and 1794 Editions, and up to 8 configurations depending on the drivetrain. The MSRP starts from $33,675 for the SR5 trim, without any options, and climbs to $48,875 for the 1794 Edition trim. An additional $1,595 is levied on top of this as a destination fee. Under the hood, the 5.7L V8 engine remains constant but offers the choice between a 4x2 or 4x4 drivetrain depending on the trim.

Though it is a full-size truck that starts at almost 35 grand, the cost of ownership for 5 years is $48,365. Being a Toyota, it is also fairly cheap to maintain with an average maintenance cost of $865 per year. Made to be the practical hauler with a towing capacity of 10,100 lbs, the Toyota Tundra Crewmax walks hand in glove with utility as well. Furthermore, the addition of the Trail Special Edition adds to its long list of capabilities. For the people who love treading off-roads, the TRD Pro model is also available for an MSRP of $53,050.

One of the cheapest full size trucks on the market.- Global Village Space.

The 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax is offered in a choice of 4 trims, namely, SR5, Limited, Platinum, and 1794 Edition. The prices begin from an MSRP of $37,970 for the SR5 trim, and go all the way up to $48,895 for the Platinum and 1794 Edition trims. The Limited trim is in the middle with a price tag of $44,255. It is also the only trim in which the Nightshade appearance package is available. For the adventurers, the 2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro offers all the off-roading fun in its build.

All of the trims come loaded with features and build on the premise of the preceding one. The 2021 Toyota Tundra Trail Special Edition is only available as the Crewmax and is based on the SR5 trim, with features being borrowed from the 1794 Edition and Platinum trim. However, the production run for the Trail Special Edition will be limited to just 5000 units. All of the trims are powered by the same 5.7L V8 and come with a 4x2 drivetrain as standard fitment. Across the lineup, the 4x4 option remains open for an extra $3,050.

2021 Toyota Tundra Buying Advice

8.0/10

From the available 4 trims on offer, the Limited trim makes the most sense as the value for money proposition. It opens the gate to the coveted Nightshade appearance package, comes with almost all the features of daily usage, has the bigger fuel tank, and is priced perfectly at $44,255. If you want to splurge more, then the Platinum trim might also be worth looking at since it upgrades to the finer features of the moniker at its price of $48,895.

2021 Toyota Tundra Engine and Performance

7.0/10

The Tundra's engine is reasonably peppy but emits an unsatisfyingly weak exhaust note. - Car and Driver.

In a world where smaller engines, hybrids, and even electric pickup trucks are taking the stage, the 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax sticks with the age-old approach of slapping a big-block 5.7L V8 under the hood. The V8 engine remains constant across the trim lineup and churns out a respectable 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed automatic transmission is hooked up to the powertrain and puts the power to the wheels via the 4x2 or 4x4 drivetrain depending on the trim you choose.

The 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax has a 5.7L V8 engine

Buying a big burly pickup truck like the 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax, you would not expect it to be a road racer. However, at the 35 grand it demands, prepare to be surprised since it can shoot from 0-60 mph in just 6.4 seconds while the quarter-mile comes up in just 15 seconds. For a truck that is almost close to 5500 lbs, these figures are quite respectable. It also gets 13.9-inch and 13.6-inch brake rotors in the front and rear respectively. They do need a fair bit of tuning since the 2021 Tundra Crewmax takes 137 feet to stop from 60-0 mph.

The 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax can go from 0-60 mph in 6.4 seconds

While many competitors offer a choice in powertrain, usually varying in the displacement, technology, or even a separate diesel option, the 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax sticks to just the one with gasoline as the fuel choice. Like the behemoth old school V8 engine, the overall driving character of the 2021 Tundra Crewmax is also antiquated in today's day and age. The gear shifts are slower and the quintessential sound of being a V8 sounds more like a grunt than a symphony.

In the lineup, the 2021 Toyota Tundra easily comes out on top as the most powerful option and hence is a perfect value for money proposition for the price it asks. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab is on the other side of the spectrum being the costliest, and yet the most underpowered. The RAM 1500 Crew Cab is the perfect option for the price since it is modern and adequately powerful. The Ford F-150 Supercrew will embark on a new generation this year, and hence remains its usual slightly underpowered self at a marginally higher price.

The 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax provides a towing capacity of 10,100 lbs

The 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax provides a maximum towing capacity of 10,100 lbs and a maximum payload capacity of 1,660 lbs. For a full-size truck, the bed size is not alterable like the other competitors, so you get the standard 5.5-feet bed only. However, depending on the trim you pick up, the towing capacity and the payload capacity changes. In all the trims besides the SR5, the payload capacity drops to 1,620 lbs while the towing capacity drops to 9,400 lbs. Though the Tundra does not match the towing capacity of the Chevy Silverado 1500, it is still decent enough.

2021 Toyota Tundra Fuel Economy

6.0/10

The Toyota Tundra stands out with its MPG figures in all the wrong ways.- The Car Connection

The 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax offers quite mediocre MPG figures since the 5.7L big-block V8 has not been tuned for fuel-efficiency. The 2021 Tundra Crewmax offers 13 MPG in the city, 18 MPG on the highway, and 15 MPG combined. Depending on the trim, the fuel tank capacity also varies between 26.4 gallons and 38 gallons.

The 2021 Toyota Tundra offers two different fuel tank capacities

In the base SR5 trim, the fuel tank capacity is fixed at 26.4 gallons which allows you to get an overall combined range of 396 miles. However, as soon as you upgrade to the Limited trim and above, the fuel tank capacity is upgraded to 38 gallons which makes way for a total combined range of 570 miles after a full refuel.

The 2021 Tundra Crewmax offers the worst MPG figures amongst the rivals. The RAM 1500 Crew Cab with its remarkable MPG figures proves clearly why it is the force to be reckoned with. The second spot is quickly occupied by the Ford F-150 since it is only marginally behind with its highway and combined MPG figures. The MPG figures of the Silverado 1500 Crew Cab follows the same approach as the Tundra. 

2021 Toyota Tundra Interior

5.5/10

Despite the old age of the 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax, the truck actually manages to have a decent interior layout. To fit the sub 35k budget for the base offering, there is a lot of use of hard plastics. However, Toyota has used different colors and wood or aluminum inlays to uplift the vibe. The multifunction steering wheel with the digital-analog driver display is a nice touch and compliments the interior perfectly. The dashboard houses the infotainment system and the climate control settings with buttons and knobs for other in-vehicular controls.

The interior of the ​​​​​2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax is fairly modern

With the SR5 trim, there is seating for 6 people, which is reduced to 5 when you upgrade to the Limited trim and above. The center console that gets added in the center of the front seat houses the shifter lever, storage space, phone holder tray, and cupholders. The front seats are comfortable in both ways whether you get the bench seats with fabric upholstery or bucket seats with leather upholstery since there is ample room just about everywhere. Depending on the trim, power adjustability with heating, and ventilation capabilities also get added.

Compared to the rest, the Chevy Silverado 1500 offers the best interior space. The RAM 1500 comes in next and actually has more space in the back than in the front. The Ford F-150 actually has almost equal space in both rows while the Toyota Tundra is actually the most compactly built, despite being spacious enough. The rear seats of the 2021 Tundra Crewmax actually are quite comfortable and spacious for people of all heights and sizes. The standout features of the interior of the 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax Platinum are:

The 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax gets an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system

The touchscreen infotainment system on the Tundra Crewmax varies between a 7-inch for the SR5 trim and an 8-inch for the other trims. Both the screens come with a decent user interface that is fairly easy to understand and operate. There are all the latest connection tech available as well like Bluetooth, WiFi, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and even Amazon Alexa. The SR5 and Limited trims come with a 9-speaker sound system. This is bumped up to a 12-speaker JBL Premium Sound System with the Platinum and 1794 Edition trim. The notable interior and infotainment features of the 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax are:

  • Dual-zone climate control with dust and pollen air filter
  • 5-seater arrangement with perforated leather upholstery

2021 Toyota Tundra Exterior

5.5/10

It is high time for a redesign and to expire the dated design it carries.- Car Mag

The 2021 Toyota Tundra still looks like the model from 2014 when it got its last major design overhaul. Even after a run of 7 years, the truck still seems like a thing of the past and the brand has not furnished any design changes this year either. There are a total of 12 colors to choose from. In the front, you get the giant and imposing grille flanked by the rather small headlamps that are halogen powered in the SR5 trim and LED-powered in all the others.

The ​​​​​2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax looks like a thing of the past

With 18-inch wheels as standard, the side silhouette is no different than a conventional pickup truck. Thanks to the smart building practices, the 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax, despite having a length of 228.9-inches (smaller than all the competitors) with a bed size of 5.5-feet, the truck still seems much bigger. The rear also looks exactly the same as before with the LED taillamps, and manually operated tailgate.

Compared to the others, the Toyota Tundra Crewmax is actually the heaviest despite being the shortest in length. The Ford F-150 Supercrew is actually the lightest one while the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab is just in the second spot with 4,702 lbs. The RAM 1500 Crew Cab occupies the third place in terms of weight but it is the longest, tallest, and widest among the lot. The notable features of the exterior of the 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax are:

2021 Toyota Tundra Competition

The Tundra's time-tested abilities have a certain appeal, but other, newer trucks simply offer more.- MotorTrend

2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax Vs 2021 Ram 1500 Crew Cab

The 2021 RAM 1500 Crew Cab is the crown king of the segment now. It is adequately powerful, spectacularly built, looks the part of a menacing modern-day pickup truck and costs lesser than the 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax. Furthermore, its hauling capabilities are hard to beat, and the interior quality is miles ahead in comparison to the 2021 Tundra Crewmax making it the no-brainer choice here.

2021 Ram 1500 Crew Cab

However much you would want to try, the 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax cannot find a way to overcome the precedent set by the 2021 RAM 1500 Crew Cab. The only aspect where the 2021 Tundra takes the lead is the reliability factor owing to being a Toyota, and the more power it packs, thanks to the big-block V8 engine under the hood.

2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax Vs 2021 Ford F-150 Supercrew

The most sold pickup truck in the country, the 2021 Ford F-150 Supercrew is the sweetheart of the people. It embarks on a new generational journey this year and hence adorns a totally new outfit this year both in the interior and the exterior. Furthermore, the engine despite being underpowered is charged up to take on any surface. It is fuel-efficient, costs less, feature-rich, and has a lot of practical creature comforts and convenience tidbits in its interior build. Another aspect that the 2021 Ford F-150 Supercrew marches ahead is that it also brings a hybrid option this time around to stay in line with the industry norms of adopting alternative and greener mobility options.

Furthermore, for the power-hungry maniacs out there, the F-150 Raptor is also available that can set the track on fire, and yet take on the off-roads just as easily. The 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax TRD Pro is also the off-road capable option, however, it is not nearly as powerful as the Raptor. That being said, as a standard truck, the 2021 Tundra Crewmax is more reliable and packs more power for the price it asks.

2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax Vs 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab

The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab is the truck to pick if you do not want to remain stuck in a rut with the same old options. Quite easily the most modern-looking truck of the lot, it borrows its looks from the Chevrolet Suburban. The interior is well laid out and feature-rich for a modern-day pickup truck, and its performance is also quite surprising for the price it demands. Despite having slightly better MPG figures, the Chevy is still a gas guzzler.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab

Though it is priced quite aggressively, the 2021 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab actually is not very different from the 2021 Toyota Tundra Crewmax in its approach to the road. Furthermore, the 2021 Tundra is a much better hauler, packs more power, and has the quintessential Toyota reliability which means it will last much longer with the owners as well. So, it boils down to the brand preference here since both the trucks are pretty similar in their build.
