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

Full-size truck shoppers are a spoiled lot, used to driving away in what's essentially a custom truck, with choices from a wide range of drivetrains, bed lengths, and cab styles. And that's before even counting all the appearance and cargo options, as well as the special-purpose packages, that are typical.

The pinnacle of the Tundra lineup is the Platinum, which is the one for drivers who want all the luxury features from a Lexus; and while last year it was only offered in CrewMax guise, for 2013 it's a full-fledged model grade--with the three grades for the Tundra now base, Limited, and Platinum. Like last year, the Platinum gets the biggest V-8 and the four-door CrewMax body, adding on premium audio, a navigation system, a sunroof, wood trim, and ventilated front seats.

The TRD Sport Package is basically a street-appearance package; or choose the TRD Rock Warrior package (this year offered with the mid-level Limited as well) and you're ready for some hard-core off-roading. Other features available in packages or as dealer-installed options include a rearview camera, driver-seat memory, 20-inch wheels, a DVD entertainment system, a power sliding rear window, and a large sunroof.

If you simply want a wash-and-wear truck made for years of hard labor, the Tundra Work Truck will fit the bill. With wind-up windows and a basic radio, it's mostly made available to power companies, contractors, and the like.

Moving up the model line, 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.

New as a regular option for the 2013 model year is a Display Navigation system with Entune multimedia package, which includes a 6.1-inch high-resolution touch screen with split-screen capability, an integrated backup-camera display, SiriusXM satellite radio capability, HD Radio with iTunes Tagging, a USB port with iPod control, hands-free calling, voice controls, and Bluetooth music streaming.

 

Conclusion

From stripped work trucks to lavishly equipped Platinum editions, the Tundra comes equipped to meet your wants and needs.

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.
