2018 Toyota Tundra Review
The Tundra has long been a staple of the Toyota lineup, offering drivers in the Danvers, Peabody, and Salem areas exceptional performance, towing abilities, and the added bonus of safety.
Our team at Ira Toyota of Danvers has written this 2018 Toyota Tundra review to show you the ways in which the Tundra masters the standard truck formula, as well as the ways in which it goes above and beyond. After reading, you should have no doubt what this truck can do.
2018 Toyota Tundra: A Truck That Prioritizes Safety
All trucks are tough. With their sturdy bodies, reinforced frames, and heavy-duty components, there’s no doubt about that. However, not all trucks go beyond this framework to ensure the safety of passengers.
In the 2018 Toyota Tundra, however, your protection is a top priority. That’s why this vehicle features so many smart safety features, starting with the Star Safety System™.
Between its two safety arrays, Star Safety™ is the more standard. This is where you’ll find features such as vehicle stability controls, brake assist, and smart stop technology—all of which can improve your truck’s handling.
However, you’ll also have access to Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P). TSS-P uses sensors and cameras to monitor the road around you. In some cases, it can even act autonomously to prevent collisions from ever occurring.
A Truck for the Long Haul
Now that you know you’ll be safe in the Toyota Tundra, why not put those features to the test, say with a major haul? After all, towing is one of the things that this truck was made for.
Your towing capacity is definitely going to change depending on which engine option you choose. Extra horsepower and torque will lead to a clear increase. However, the standard 4.6L V8 in the 2018 Tundra still results in a maximum towing capacity of 6,800 pounds of cargo.
A towing package is also standard in the 2018 Tundra. This comes with features to help maintain stability and strength when pulling a heavy load. It includes features like the hitch receiver, integrated trailer brake controller, and 4/7-pin wiring connector.
2018 Toyota Tundra Performance Specs
Like we said before, the standard powertrain in the 2018 Tundra is a 4.6L V8 engine. When enhanced with its regular i-FORCE technology and acoustic control induction system, it can generate up to 310 HP and 327 lb-ft of torque.
This powertrain also comes standard with a 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with intelligence. In addition to being super smooth, this transmission features uphill and downhill sequential shifting modes, as well as a tow and haul mode.
Take the 2018 Toyota Tundra for a Spin
Now that you’ve read all about the 2018 Toyota Tundra, you might think you’re a bit of an expert. However, you don’t really know what this truck is capable of until you take it for a spin out on those Danvers, Peabody, and Salem roads.
