The 2013 Toyota Tundra ranks among the best full-size pickup trucks, thanks to its superb reliability rating, great safety scores, and burly engine performance. However, it has a firm ride and a less attractive interior than many of its rivals. On the surface, the Toyota Tundra has seen some growth throughout the seasons, but underneath it has remained largely unchanged since the current model debuted six years ago: frozen solid if you will. Meanwhile, the Tundra's competitors from Ford have evolved and adapted to the shifting automotive landscape. As a result, the 2013 Toyota Tundra is notably outdated when it comes to refinement.

Sturdy and reliable.

Pros - "Spacious interior Muscular V8 engines"

Cons - "Some cheap cabin materials Fairly stiff ride quality"

Affordable Truck Love the way it feels when driving it, feels like a luxury car. Always reliable and this is our 3rd Tundra. It's very fast. It has a lot of power. It handles pretty well despite its size. The radio has features so that I don't need to use my phone. The trailer brake system is intuitive. The design is fairly simple and not too complicated. The finance deal felt much of a jumble for the time they took to process everything!

I don'r recommend Tundra

Pros - Strong v8, roomy seats and good payload capacity

Cons - The reliability of the car is poor

Car gets isuues which are not economical at just 5000 miles, air induction pump has failed and costs arounds $3000. so, this way it lacks the reliability.I don't recommend the vehicle to anyone as it was told that it may get many issues and my dealership experience was also not well.

The american dream truck

Pros - Performance and Interiors

Cons - Muted engine Unstable cornering

Awesome warranty periods. Tundra has a powerful engine with great performnace however during cornering i feel a little shaky or spacious , a great work truck and a family vehicle at the same time. The tundra is a beast when comes to looks, unstable which is not that great. The interiors are Awesome warranty periods.

Overall Rating


Although the Toyota Tundra may not have seen huge sales numbers but it is probably due to the large scale brand loyalty that is evident in the full-size pickup category and hence the veterans like the Ford F-150, RAM 1500 and the Chevrolet Silverado have the lion's share of the market. The Tundra manages to not only match these rivals in terms of power, performance, hauling prowess and even in terms of features, but also betters them in some of them. Add to the high safety ratings that many manufacturers conveniently throw under the bus, the 2013 Toyota Tundra has all that one could ask from their full size truck.

2013 Toyota Tundra Pricing and Features

9.9/10

The 2013 Toyota Tundra is a full-size pickup offered in three body styles (two-door Regular Cab, extended four-door Double Cab, and four-door crew-cab called the CrewMax), plus three different wheelbases and three-bed lengths. There are three trim levels: the base Tundra, Limited, and Platinum. Not all of these variations are available together, and the availability of some options often depends on the region in which you live.

Standard equipment on entry-level Regular Cab models includes 18-inch steel wheels, chrome bumpers, heated mirrors, full power accessories, a windshield wiper de-icer, a damped tailgate, cruise control, dual-zone climate control, cloth upholstery, a 40/20/40-split bench seat, a tilt-only steering wheel, and a four-speaker sound system with a CD player and an auxiliary audio jack.

Moving up to the Limited trim level, which is only offered on Double Cab and CrewMax body styles, gets you 18-inch alloy wheels, a color-keyed front bumper, fog lights, a bed rail system with adjustable tie-down cleats, power-folding and auto-dimming mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, power front bucket seats (10-way driver, four-way passenger), heated front seats, a power-operated sliding rear window (Double Cab), an auto-dimming rearview mirror with built-in back-up camera display, upgraded gauges and trip computer, a tilt-and-telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth phone, and audio connectivity and a JBL premium audio system with a six-CD changer (10 speakers in the Double Cab and 12 speakers in the CrewMax).

The Platinum trim is only available with the CrewMax body and adds 20-inch wheels, chrome exterior treatments, power-folding mirrors that are both heated and auto-dimming, a sunroof, perforated leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, driver-seat memory functions, and a navigation system with a touchscreen interface, voice controls, and real-time traffic. A rear-seat entertainment system is available as an option for Platinum and CrewMax Limited models only.

We Recommend

The 2013 Toyota Tundra Crewmax can be tailored to your taste and preference as there are plenty of options and add on features with packages available. Available according to certain regions, make sure the model and options you seek in this Toyota pickup are available in the region you are looking for. The platinum trim is exclusively dedicated to the crewmax body, hence it gets our recommendation.

2013 Toyota Tundra Engine and Performance

8.5/10

The Tundra is offered with a V-6 at the base level, but there's really no good reason to choose it instead of one of the available V-8 engines, which are far stronger and, at least for the smaller V-8, nearly as efficient.

The base engine is a 270-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 with variable valve timing; it's not as much a gas miser as V-6 models of the Ford F-150 or Ram 1500--not as powerful either--but it can be a reasonable way to keep the Tundra's price tag low when it counts. Fleets are the intended mission for this model anyway, and that's why it's available in abbreviated Regular Cab form.

The 381-horsepower, 5.7-liter V-8 provides the most Lexus-like driving experience--if you don't mind a little more bassy exhaust note than the other models. It's a sharp, responsive engine, twisting out enormous torque just off idle, with the passing power to rival some luxury sedans, even when towing.

Overall, the Tundra feels light and precise and quick to take direction, and controls its body roll very well, especially for its size, though ride quality is choppy when the truck's running a light payload. The brakes are among the best in the class, big and firm to the foot.

2013 Toyota Tundra Fuel Economy

8.0/10

The 2013 Toyota Tundra hasn't kept up with other full-size pickups in fuel-efficiency, and it's enough to matter if you're cross-shopping them all and care about mileage numbers. The Tundra offers a choice of V-8s, with decent fuel economy for the class. The CrewMax Tundra, with a 4.6-liter V-6, an automatic transmission, and rear-wheel drive, checks in at 15/20 mpg, according to the EPA. Topping it off with a four-wheel-drive lowers those figures to 14/19 mpg.

When it comes to the most fuel-efficient among the three trucks, the Ford F-150 SuperCrew takes the top spot with a combined mpg of 19 and 17/23 - city and highway respectively. The Toyota Tacoma, which has 18 mpg combined, is not the worst among the competition but is certainly not the best as it marginally beats the Tundra Crewmax who has the least figures among them when it comes to mpg, of just 17 mpg combined.

2013 Toyota Tundra Interior

9.9/10

While the interior of the 2013 Toyota Tundra is fine by pickup truck standards and even has a few strong points, the fact that it hasn't been updated in five years makes it seem dated when compared to the more recently redone cabins of its Ford and Ram competitors. The Platinum model gains upscale touches like perforated leather upholstery and heated/ventilated front seats, but the fact remains that designers have done nothing to address more fundamental issues like distantly placed audio controls, low-quality materials, and the base model's difficult-to-read gauges.

From a practical standpoint, however, the Tundra scores. Topping the list of thumbs-up inside is the ridiculously roomy rear seat in CrewMax models, which combines gobs of legroom with the comfort of reclining seatbacks. Another plus is the front-hinged rear doors on Double Cab models that make getting in and out of the adult-friendly backseat much easier than the clamshell-style rear doors on some competitors. The folding back seats on Double Cab and CrewMax models also provide a good amount of protected storage for valuable items you'd rather not leave in the bed.

2013 Toyota Tundra Crewmax Infotainment System

Look beyond the Tundra’s generous seating space, and you’ll find a rather drab interior. There have been few changes to its dashboard design since the 2007 model year. Most cabin surfaces are covered with hard, cheap-looking plastics – even in higher trim levels. That said, the audio and climate controls are simple and easy to use. Toyota’s available 6.1-inch touch-screen navigation system is also user-friendly. A 7-inch screen with navigation is also available, but this system is older and less intuitive.

2013 Toyota Tundra Exterior

9.9/10

For a truck to be taken seriously, it has to be tough, and it has to look tough. And in the latter respect, Toyota might have landed a bit off the mark with the current Tundra. With its last redesign a few years back, the Tundra took another step up in size, and it looks particularly imposing parked next to the other full-size pickups on the market. Yet it could be argued that the Tundra is overly complicated in its design, and it lacks the straightforward, rugged look that to Americans, makes a truck a truck.

While all the visual heft is here, just as much as any other pickup, with lots of big sheet metal panels and a grille big enough for a cookout, the pieces don't add up, and some of the Tundra's curves and sheet metal bulges look more carlike than they ought to. From the muscular fenders to the pronounced sills that make it look tall and bulky, the Tundra doesn’t read as simply, or as straightforwardly, as the semi-inspired Tacoma or the Tonka-ish F-150. The proportions are almost cartoonish, the details awkward--and they could use some kind of 'reset.'

2013 Toyota Tundra Safety

8.0/10

The new Toyota Tundra is big and brawny, no doubt. And it offers impressive occupant protection. The Tundra meets the competition head-on for the most part, with a solid array of active and passive safety features. Though there aren't advanced options for technology like blind-spot monitors, the Tundra does come with standard dual front, side, curtain, and knee airbags, as well as stability control and anti-lock brakes. Options you'll want is the rearview camera and parking sensors are optional on the Tundra, and that's good, because its high tailgate and overall size mean visibility isn't always the best, though the seating position is high, and outward visibility ahead and to the sides is good.

  • Brake Assist
  • Electronic Stability Control
  • Daytime Running Lights
  • Child Safety Locks
  • Front Tow Hooks (Optional)
  • Traction Control

2013 Toyota Tundra Final Verdict

The 2013 Toyota Tundra is a great choice if you’re shopping for a full-size pickup truck. The Tundra has an excellent record of reliability, roomy seating for up to six, and strong engine options that make it a formidable choice for towing heavy loads. It also rates well for crash safety.
