2018 Toyota Tundra vs. Its Competition

2018 Toyota Tundra
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

You have a full day ahead of you if you’re looking to cross-shop full-size pickup trucks.

The Tundra’s fiercest competitors come from Detroit: Ford F-Series, Chevrolet Silverado, Ram 1500, and GMC Sierra.

Each has its own virtues, like the Ford’s strong turbo V-6 engines, the Silverado’s refined demeanor, the Ram’s cushy ride, and the Sierra’s upscale options.

Then there’s the Nissan Titan, which is available with a turbodiesel V-8 that offers strong tugging power for those who need to haul a bit more.

Quick Specs
5.5
The 2018 Toyota Tundra offers a strong V-8 engine and good advanced safety tech, but it comes up short in terms of fuel efficiency and interior quality.
6.7
The suave 2018 Chevrolet Silverado does nearly all things well, even if it’s not a huge standout in one way or another.
7.2
The 2018 Ford F-150 sports new looks and a wider availability for a 10-speed automatic transmission. A turbodiesel is in the works for this model year, albeit later in 2018.
6.7
The 2018 GMC Sierra is a rugged, handsome full-size pickup certainly worthy of your attention.
5.5
The 2018 Nissan Titan and Titan XD fill in the gaps left by others with a reasonable price, reasonable performance, and better warranty.
6.2
The swagger-heavy 2018 Ram 1500 is the coolest pickup around, even if competitors have eclipsed it in some ways.
