Last year, the Toyota Tundra was given a refresh, and those changes have carried over to the 2023 Toyota Tundra model. This means you are still going to get unbeatable performance, durability, and eye-catching lines, all of which make the Tundra a favorite among drivers looking for a full-size truck that can hold its own against whatever mother nature throws at it. The 2023 Tundra starts at $36,965, and because drivers know Toyota, they know they’ll be getting a lot for their money.[a] Whether you’re looking to get to work or take an adventure, the Toyota Tundra is a flexible truck that has the power to perform when and where you need it to.
The Tundra has a quiet strength that makes it more manageable than some of its less civilized competition. Whether in the city or the backwoods, the Tundra has no trouble fitting in. With seven trim options available, drivers can find the perfect truck that fits their daily requirements. Not only is the Tundra built to be one of Toyota's toughest, most capable trucks ever, but also one of its most efficient. Inside and outside, the Tundra is designed to deliver on multiple levels. With a great blend of brains and brawn, 2023 is looking good for the Toyota Tundra.
There are a lot of trucks out there that look good but can't do hard work, and there are a lot of trucks out there that can do hard work but don't look good. The 2023 Toyota Tundra, with its two available engines, both looks good and can handle hard work. It's a perfect blend that someone who uses their truck as both a daily driver and a work companion will appreciate.
The base engine for the 2023 Tundra is a 3.4L i-FORCE turbo V6. With this engine, you'll get up to 389 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. That's an excellent amount of power for a full-size truck, and fuel economy is still pretty good at a combined 20 MPG. However, the Toyota powertrain everyone is talking about is the available 3.4L i-FORCE MAX turbo V6 hybrid that is designed to make the Tundra and your off-roading adventures more efficient than ever before. The engine is capable of generating up to 583 lb-ft of torque and 437 horsepower with an estimated fuel economy of 22 MPG combined. This is the kind of forward-thinking technology that made Toyota such a fan-favorite. Drivers won’t be disappointed when they press down on the gas and experience the power of Tundra and the i-FORCE V6.
If towing is part of your day-to-day, you’ll be glad the Tundra isn’t one to back down, with a maximum towing capacity of 12,000 pounds when you have the proper equipment. To streamline things, after you attach your trailer with the available seven-pin connector, your Tundra can calculate its length. It doesn’t get much easier than that. The TOW/HAUL modes allow the Tundra to adjust its throttle responses, allowing drivers to take full advantage of the Tundra’s strength and power.
Looking to get off-road? Then let the Tundra take you there. Available on the TRD Pro and TRD Off-Road Packages, the Tundra Crawl Control (CRAWL) has got you covered. When the terrain turns rough, CRAWL helps you navigate rocky, uneven ground smoother and quieter than ever before. All it takes is one press of a button, and you’re ready to rock. The Tundra’s Multi-Terrain Select system is there when you need it. Quickly select from Mud, Sand, Rock, Mogul (gas-only), or Auto (hybrid-only). If days take you over highways, muddy trails, or sand, the Tundra is a flexible machine ready for adventure.
Drivers that spend a great deal of time off-road can invest in the TRD Pro or TRD Off-Road Packages to get the most out of their truck. Not only is CRAWL available, but they unlock the Tundra’s electronically locking rear differential that delivers equal power to both rear wheels for grip and control on sandy or slippery terrain.
While the Tundra is designed to deliver the ultimate driving performance, the inside is refined and modern, with upgraded seating and user-friendly technology every driver can enjoy. The nature-loving truck lets in the sun and makes sure to give drivers and passengers a good view with wide windows and an available panoramic sunroof. Stay comfortable during hot and cold weather with the Tundra’s available heated and ventilated seating. And when the temperature is just right, simply sit back and enjoy the supportive seating and leather upholstery.
The interior was designed to add a hint of luxury to your day without the high-end price tag. You'll find available leather and soft accents throughout the spacious cabin that delivers plenty of leg and headroom, making every seat the best in the house. When you level up to the Tundra CrewMax, enjoy the Power Vertical Rear Window that comes standard. Let in the breeze with a push of the button that will raise or lower the rear window.
The Tundra is built for adventure with plenty of storage inside and out. The center console makes it easy to access travel essentials like a flashlight, phone, or sunglasses, and the rear seat storage compartment that is accessible under Tundra’s rear flip-and-fold seats allows you to bring along extra camping equipment for the trip ahead.
Drivers can load up the bed knowing it's protected with an ultra-durable Sheet-Molded Composite surface. This helps prevent scratches, dents, and even rust, plus it helps lessen the impact of whatever you’re towing. Even loaded to the max, the Tundra’s composite bed is going to keep your truck looking great year after year. If bikes, ATVs, or kayaks are in your future, make sure they are secure using the Tundra’s specially designed deck rail system.
What about power? Plug into the 400W inverter to power your campsite. And lights? No problem! The Tundra’s LED bed lights make packing up and hitting the road before the sun is up easier than ever. Are you worried about sliding gear in the back? Take advantage of the bed camera that lets you see what's going on in the back. Plus, when your hands are full, simply tap the available bumper release switch to make loading up your cargo bed easier than ever before.
Drivers looking for the latest and greatest tech that's easy to use know they’ll find it in a Toyota like the 2023 Tundra. The Tundra's available 14-inch Audio Multimedia Touchscreen keeps you connected to all of your vehicle's infotainment features and camera views. Check out your surroundings in 360 with the Panoramic View Monitor, or keep an eye on the trail ahead with the Multi-Terrain Monitor. What could be more stressful than trying to see where you’re backing up your trailer? The Tundra is here to help out with its Trailer Backup Guide With Straight Path Assist. The driver-assist technology combines sensors and cameras to make backing up easier than ever before.
What's one thing we all love? Wireless charging! And the Tundra has it. Say goodbye to tangles of chargers and chords. Set your compatible smartphone on the charging deck and hit the road. You also get access to wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto that you can control through the Audio Multimedia display. Stay connected wherever you roam with the available Wi-Fi connect hotspot.
What would a Toyota be without the latest safety features? Toyota has put its technology to work, delivering some of the most advanced safety features out there. Tundra drivers can feel confident behind the wheel with Toyota’s Safety Sense 2.5, a suite of standard safety and driver-assist features that has you covered from all sides.
Features include the Pre-Collision System With Pedestrian Detection. This system helps detect bikers, other vehicles, or pedestrians, alerting the driver and even providing emergency braking if needed. Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Lane Tracing Assist help keep you comfortably in your intended lane of travel, while the Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control will automatically adjust your speed to match the flow of traffic around you when you turn on cruise control. Stressed about driving after dark? Automatic high beams will brighten when they sense poor lighting and dim when they sense traffic approaching, so all you have to do is focus on the road ahead.
