What's New For 2018?
Now standard on every Toyota vehicle is the Safety Sense P, an all-inclusive driver aid package. Also, certain SR5s now have a TRD Sport package available. The Tundra's styling is also brand-new, and there is no longer an option for a standard cab.
The 2018 Toyota Tundra 2WD is available as a full-sized pickup truck with multiple configurations.
You can take your pick between five different trim levels on the 2018 Toyota Tundra 2WD, and the one you choose will depend on your specific needs. There are two V8 engines to choose from, the 4.6-L (which generates 310 hp and 327 lb-ft of torque) and the high-powered 5.7-L (which gets 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque). The base SR trim comes as a double-cab only and features a 6.1-inch LCD touchscreen display, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring. The next trim level is the SR5, which adds an upgraded 7-inch touchscreen, satellite and HD radio, and the optional Upgrade and TR Sport packages. The third trim level is known as the Limited. It includes the Upgrade package features as standard and includes a built-in navigation system and chic leather upholstery in the cabin. The Platinum trim adds a massive 12-speaker sound system and front seats that are both ventilated and heated. Finally, there is the 1794 Edition, which is named for the year Texas' oldest, still-functioning ranch was founded. This trim level features unique design elements inside and out that differentiate it from the Platinum.
Acceleration on the 2018 Toyota Tundra 2WD is surprisingly swift and tends to leave its competitors in the dust. The 5.7-L engine is more than capable of bringing this massive truck up to speed on the highway, and the 4.6-L engine is fairly sufficient as well. Braking, too, is pretty secure and reliable. It is the truck's steering and handling abilities that cause problems for Tundra drivers. The steering is relatively accurate and is mostly what you should expect from such a large vehicle, but you will have to be mindful of how you take your turns. You will also have to pay extra attention to how the Tundra handles along narrow, busy city roads. The optional TRD Off-Road package and limited-slip differential (which is automatic) are what really give the Tundra the edge over the competition, making this truck a capable off-roader, even with 2WD.
You likely aren't looking to buy a large truck for its excellent fuel economy. You need it to get the job done. Opting for the 2WD will save you some gas, especially if you get the 4.6-L engine. This will get you an EPA rating of 16 mpg combined (15 city/19 highway). Anything else will cause these numbers to drop slightly, and the Tundra is one of the biggest gas-guzzlers in its class.
The 2018 Toyota Tundra 2WD is a powerful workhorse with surprisingly strong acceleration and a lot of desirable features. While handling, steering, and fuel economy are rather subpar, the Tundra makes up for it with its off-roading and towing.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Toyota Tundra 2WD invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Toyota Tundra 2WD MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
