In the light and medium-duty truck segments, reliability and performance are key to success. Whether a truck is being used on the work site, or the great American freeway, it needs to be able to work. Both the Toyota Tundra and the Ford F-150 have built reputations for solid work vehicles. Beyond being simply utilitarian, however, a good truck should be comfortable and enjoyable to drive.
The addition to the lineup of the TRD Sport package proves that the Toyota Tundra is an adventurous, high-energy pickup option in the light and medium-duty truck class. The 2018 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport package accents industry-leading performance with aggressive styling, 20-inch alloy wheels, and the Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) suite of active safety features. With a host of configuration options for both, we’ll be looking at the 2018 Toyota Tundra 4x4 CrewMax model in the Limited trim. The Ford F-150 will be the comparable 2018 Ford F-150 Supercrew 4x4 model with Lariat trim level.

The 2018 Toyota Tundra includes several advantages, which make it stand out among peers in its class. The all-new TRD Sport styling is an aggressive and performance-minded exterior finish that offers a honey-comb-style, color-keyed grille, additional hood scoop, 20-inch alloy wheels, TRD tune front and rear sway bars, LED headlights, and more.
Styled in California and Michigan, and manufactured in San Antonio, the 2018 Toyota Tundra is a distinctively American pickup truck. It features outstanding tow ratings, horsepower, and torque at every engine size, cab size, and trim level.
Built for performance, the 2018 Toyota Tundra features a heavy-duty TripleTech™ frame with integrated towing hitch receiver. Toyota’s high-end i-FORCE 5.7L V8 engine is on call to assist with towing over 10,000 lbs. Available 38-gallon fuel tank lets you keep going to get the job done sooner. Standard automatic Limited-Slip Differential (LSD) applies brakes individually to wheels with no traction. Unlike traditional traction control systems, engine power is not cut to low-traction wheels.
Because the Tundra is built to work hard and play hard, it features a backup camera and display audio through the 7” touchscreen control. Toyota’s Entune™ app suite is on board to make the luxurious cabin even more enjoyable. The innovative safety suite from Toyota, Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P), is standard on every Tundra model.
