The 2023 Toyota Tundra is an excellent full-size vehicle. It’s available with a powerful twin-turbo V6 engine or an even more potent hybrid powertrain, which propels the truck forward with authority and provides strong towing capability. The recent modification to a coil-spring rear suspension has given the Tundra a soft ride and neat handling while retaining its off-road capability. Inside, you’ll find a well-built cabin with comfortable front seats, an easy-to-use infotainment system, and plenty of standard driver aids.
The Tundra’s severe sole flaw is its Double Cab option, which has cramped back seats. The Crew Cab’s accommodations are luxurious in comparison.
Toyota Tundra interior
The interior of the 2023 Toyota Tundra is attractive and well-trimmed, with comfortable front seats, an easy-to-use infotainment system, a plethora of standard amenities, and numerous bed lengths. The Tundra is available in both Double Cab and Crew Cab body types. Each has five seats. Cloth upholstery is the norm. Leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, and heated and ventilated front and rear seats are all options.
The front seats are supportive, comfy, and capacious. The rear seats in the Crew Cab are also comfortable and spacious, but the back seat in the Double Cab is somewhat small.
There are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the Tundra’s rear outboard seats and a tether anchor for the rear middle seat for attaching child safety seats.
Infotainment and tech features
An analogue gauge cluster, an 8-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, navigation, satellite radio, a six-speaker stereo (nine speakers for Crew Cabs), Bluetooth, three USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot, keyless entry, push-button start, and single-zone automatic climate control are all standard features on the Tundra.
A 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, a 14-inch touch screen, a 12-speaker radio, wireless device charging, two 120-volt household-style power outlets, two more USB ports, ambient lighting, dual-zone automatic temperature control, and a panoramic sunroof are among the available features.
The infotainment system’s touch-screen interface is responsive and simple to use. The main audio and climate controls can also be adjusted via well-placed buttons and knobs on the centre stack, however, the markings for these controls might be difficult to see in direct sunlight.
Engine, power and performance
The 2023 Toyota Tundra is available with three V6 engine options. Starting from the base model SR, it is powered by a non-hybrid twin turbo 3.5 litre V6 engine. This powertrain powers out 348 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. The same engine also powers other models as you go up in the trim where it delivers 389 horsepower and 479 pound feet of torque.
Also available is a twin-turbo 3.5 litre V6 engine paired with an electric motor. From this combination, a stunning power output of 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque is achieved.
For the Toyota Tundra, a 10-speed automatic transmission system is available and both rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive options are available.
