2018 Toyota Tundra Crew Cab Review, Price, Interior, Mpg – The Tundra Crew Cab is one of the best-selling full size trucks available on the North American market as a result of its very reliable motors, good on and off-road capacities and one of the best interiors available on the market. On the other hand, the truck was released back in 2006 and it’s now one of the oldest models in its class, so it isn’t actually a surprise that it simply doest sell as good as its competitors. To be able to change that, Toyota has been planning an all new model for a couple of years now and this is expected to be released sometime in 2018. Because of that, this Tundra Crew Cab will go by the name 2018 Toyota Tundra Crew Cab. The new model is not only going to bring a new platform as well as new engines but it will also revamp the look of the truck and its price scheme.
2018 Toyota Tundra Crew Cab Redesign Exterior & Interior
Just as we mentioned, the design of the 2018 Toyota Tundra Crew Cab diesel will change quite a bit over what the current model resembles. Our best option is that Toyota will borrow in the design of the new Tacoma as well as from the design of the Global versions that could lead to an all new layout scheme that might be used at a subsequent date in their future versions. Technologies such as fully LED lit headlights and tail lights, active aerodynamics for the front end as well as a new bed design will all be present on this new generation of the Tundra Crew Cab while options like a TRD package that will include bigger tires, bead-lock tires, and even an upgraded suspension system will be available sometime after the official launch.
Inside the cabin, the new Tundra Crew Cab diesel will sport an all new interior which won’t just need to compete with all of its rivals, but it will also need to outclass the current generation of the Tundra Crew Cab which is still received as one of the best out there. We expect it to find an all new design for its dashboard, a new sportier steering wheel as well as Toyotas latest technologies such as their new infotainment and audio systems as well as a normal GPS tracking system with a remote assistance program which will allow Toyota to help the driver or even notify it about future servicing.
2018 Toyota Tundra Crew Cab ENgine Specs, Gas Mileage
Engine wise, both petrol engines will be upgraded with direct injection but our favorite will be the new diesel that has been rumored for quite a long time now. At first, many people suggested that the 2018 Toyota Tundra Crew Cab diesel was going to obtain a 4.5 liter V8 from the Land Cruiser which would have certainly done the job but it just is up to the task of competing with the Cummins or Powerstroke versions currently available on the market. So as to be at least able to match them, Toyota decided to work with Cummins and Nissan, so they went ahead and released an all new 5-liter turbocharged diesel V8 manufactured by Cummins. This engine can make up to 310 horsepower and over 555 lb-ft of torque while using just as much or even less fuel than a V6 petrol engine, all while offering many superior towing capabilities than a V8 petrol engine.
2018 Toyota Tundra Crew Cab Release Date and Price MSRP
This will be the first model to incorporate a diesel in the range, meaning the 2018 Toyota Tundra Crew Cab diesel is likely going to be the top of the range. While details are still scarce, we do have a rather good impression about the future generation because Toyota has been preparing for it for quite a very long time now. We are aware that the new platform will see significant improvements concerning durability, strength, and weight because of the high strength steel construction and aluminum parts which Toyota will install in key areas of the truck. The suspension system will be entirely changed for something a little more comfortable on the road and more capable in off-road while its engines will probably be all new or at least updated quite a bit. The diesel version will be launched right after the official release that is expected to come at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. The cost is still unknown for now but considering its competitors and the rather high-end trim level, we expect the diesel to come at a hefty premium over the petrol engine.
