Toyota has streamlined the Tundra lineup down to the 28 most popular configurations.

Like every other full-size truck on the market, the 2012 Toyota Tundra gives owners the chance to build what's essentially a custom truck, from a range of drivetrains, body styles, and bed lengths.

It doesn't stop there, though: the Tundra also starts in vinyl-seat work trim and moves steadily and expensively up the features ladder, the same way the Ram, Silverado, Sierra, and F-150 do, with just a few tech gadgets left on the domestics' table.

The standard Tundra Work Truck has it all--if by all, you mean a wash-and-wear truck made for years of hard labor. With wind-up windows and a basic radio, it's mostly made available to power companies, contractors, and the like. From that edition, the Tundra dolls itself up all the way to Platinum trim, with leather upholstery, satellite radio, a sunroof, power features, and Bluetooth connectivity. A note: Toyota's streamlined its already simplified features packages, so at some dealers, you won't be able to find, say, a long-bed 5.7-liter V-8 with only a CD player, but with upscale interior trim.

You will be able to order a sporty TRD hardware package, so long as you're willing to stick with the 4x2 regular-cab truck or the standard-bed Double Cab. The the TRD Sport Package is basically a street-appearance package; choose the TRD Rock Warrior package and you're ready for some hard-core off-roading.

Up at the pinnacle of the Tundra lineup is the Platinum, a name we've seen before. As with the F-150 Platinum, this Tundra is the one for drivers who want all the luxury features from a Lexus. The Platinum gets the biggest V-8 and the four-door CrewMax body, and adds on premium audio, a navigation system, a sunroof, wood trim, and ventilated front seats.

Other features available in packages or as dealer-installed options on the 2012 Tundra include a rearview camera, driver-seat memory, 20-inch wheels, a DVD entertainment system, a power sliding rear window, and a large sunroof.

 

Conclusion

A huge range of features gives drivers a choice from stripped Tundra work trucks to lavishly equipped Platinum editions.

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.
