The 2011 Toyota Tundra mitigates its big V-8's low fuel economy with a V-6 option, but even that truck can't beat the domestic's best.

The base Tundra comes with a six-cylinder engine, an automatic transmission, and rear-wheel drive. It's EPA-rated at 16/20 mpg--and like other six-cylinder big pickups, it's a fleet-duty special mostly purchased by utilities and agencies.

Two different eight-cylinder engines can be specified in the mass-market Tundra. With its 4.6-liter V-8, an automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive, the Tundra checks in at 15/20 mpg. Adding on four-wheel drive drops the figures to 14/19 mpg.

The top-line Tundra with Toyota's powerful 5.7-liter V-8 earns an EPA rating of 14/18 mpg in 4x2 trim. With a 4x4 drivetrain, this Tundra's fuel economy only musters 13/17 mpg.

Toyota has said in the recent past, that all its vehicles would be available as hybrids by 2020. There's still a decade left to go, so the lack of a hybrid option on today's Tundra isn't surprising. No diesel option is offered, either.

Conclusion

The 2011 Toyota Tundra's six-cylinder isn't as efficient as those from Detroit, but the V-8s have comparable EPA ratings.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
