2018 Toyota Tundra Platinum Price
2018 Toyota Tundra Platinum Price – For the 2018 model year, Toyota is performing a mild refresh to its Tundra pickup truck lineup, which debuted at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. The most notable bit of news is a new TRD Sport trim to up the Tundra’s performance and visual appearance a smidge.
While not as extreme as the Tundra TRD Pro, the Tundra TRD Sport does get a few performance enhancing goodies such as Bilstein shock absorbers and uprated TRD front and rear antiroll bars to sharpen handling.
To distinguish the TRD Sport from regular Tundra models, Toyota adds body color mirrors, bumpers, hood scoop, LED headlights, mesh grille and TRD Sport decals on the bedsides. The whole package rides on 20-inch silver aluminum wheels with black-painted insets. For the cabin, a TRD shift knob and TRD Sport floor mats slightly dress things up.
The TRD Sport trim is available on the Tundra CrewMax and Double Cab body styles powered by the 5.7-liter, 381-horsepower V8. Customers will be able to choose between 4×2 and 4×4 on the TRD Sport.
For the entire 2018 Tundra lineup, there are small styling tweaks: new grille and headlight designs. The Tundra’s technology hand also becomes stronger with the Toyota Safety Sense suite of equipment becoming standard adding a precollision system with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and automatic high beams.

What We Think 2018 Toyota Tundra Platinum
In a 2015 comparison test against the Ram 1500 Rebel, the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro won because it offered a comfortable ride and superior off-road capability all in one package. However, in a 2014 First Test, we noted that the Tundra’s interior lacks insulation with plenty of exterior noise entering the cabin. Front seat comfort is also lacking as the seats are hard, flat, and lacking lateral support. Rear seat accommodations, on the other hand, proved generous and the available 5.7-liter V-8 has plenty of power on tap.
2018 Toyota Tundra Platinum Price And Release Date
The Toyota confirmed that the 2018 Tundra and Sequia will arive to the market already in September 2017.
As for the price, Toyota, did not released pricing for the 2018 Tundra, we try to find some official info about the price, and as for this moment there are non. So, as for our opinion we think that price should not be many diferent than the 2017 model, and it goes from around $30,000 to upwards of $50,000.
