The 2019 Toyota Tundra CrewMax performs decently on the road and works as hard as a work truck. The terrain response system continually optimizes the drivetrain, braking, and shift points for every terrain. Take on rugged terrain, tow heavy loads, or just grab a seat in a comfortable cabin that's quieter than ever before, everything is possible in this Tundra. It competes with other hotshots such as the RAM 1500, Ford F-150, and Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Which trim should you buy? 

Toyota provides various upgrades for the 2019 Tundra CrewMax besides the standard options. The SR5 and above trims are good starting points for the vast majority of buyers. Each has a wide range of standard tech and safety features. In order to get amenities like leather upholstery, heated seats, and navigation, you will need to upgrade to a higher trim level.

2019 Toyota Tundra Engine and Performance

6.0/10

In the 2019 Toyota Tundra, two V8 engines are available: one 4.6-liter that delivers 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque and another 5.7-liter with 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. For the most part, the standard 6-speed automatic transmission is smooth and provides quick gear changes for all trims. All models come standard with rear-wheel drive, while four-wheel drive is available. 

The Tundra's generous ground clearance and several off-road-ready options make it one of the most off-road tolerant full-size pickups on the market. Toyota's Tundra offers impressive performance, accelerating from zero to sixty in 7.8 seconds and covering a quarter-mile in 16.1 seconds with its 4.6-liter engine. The pickup has a towing capacity of 10,100 lbs, which is the most in the competition.

The Toyota Tundra is the most powerful pickup in the segment based on the metrics outlined above. The Ram 1500's power and torque are modest, yet its 0-60 mph time of 6.6 seconds makes this pick-up one of the fastest. It's the Tundra that tops the towing charts by a wide margin. When comparing the price tag, the Ford F-150 is the most expensive option in the competition. 

How well does the 2019 Toyota Tundra handle?

The handling can be heavy and unsteady, especially on narrow, tight roads. By the standards of today's pickup trucks, this thing is old. Excellent steering responsiveness, smooth acceleration, and crisp cornering provide for a refined driving experience in the 2019 Toyota Tundra. Small ruts don't bother the Tundra at all.

The jig moves very little over small imperfections, but a lot over larger ones. There is no wiggle room in the ride. When that bed is loaded up with heavy payloads, it would be fine, but unladen, it can be a bit tough to live with. Making a tow rating of 10,000 pounds compulsory, rather than optional, has its downsides. 

2019 Toyota Tundra Braking Performance

Neither the brake pedal nor the truck is light. During emergency braking, this combination leaves little room for confidence. On mountain roads, the brakes are under a lot of stress because they are an integral part of the stability control system. It takes the Tundra 130 feet to come to a halt from 60 mph - standard for the segment. The brakes have a diameter of 13.95 inches for the front rotors and 13.66 inches for the rear rotors.

With a curb weight of 4,520 pounds, the Chevrolet Silverado has a 129-foot stopping distance at 60 mph. It's decent for a pickup of this size, but not great. The RAM 1500 was able to stop first in the braking test, while other pickups may need more carpet to settle. The Ford's F-150 provides excellent brake modulation when it comes to pedal response. 

2019 Toyota Tundra Fuel Economy

2.0/10

The fuel economy of the 2019 Toyota Tundra isn't as impressive as it could be. When equipped with the 5.7-liter V-8, the model gets 13 mpg in the city, 17 on the highway, and 15 on the combined cycle. The Tundra TRD Pro gets even worse fuel economy: 13/17/14 mpg. The base engine, i.e., 4.6-liter V-8 offers the best fuel economy, but it's not by much: 14/18/16 mpg with four-wheel drive and 15/19/16 mpg with rear-drive.

While all of the aforementioned pickups get average fuel ratings, the F-150 and RAM 1500 do better than the other two. With their poor gas ratings, the Tundras and Silverados are clear gas guzzlers. Although the Tundra's fuel capacity is not known, the F-150 has the largest tank. While the range is not known for any of the pickups, the Ford F-150 offers the biggest fuel tank of 26 gallons.

2019 Toyota Tundra Interior

8.0/10

The 2019 Toyota Tundra CrewMax interior provides you with a range of comfortable features for a safe and enjoyable ride. Filled with the details that make your drive more pleasurable, this spacious pickup is a remarkable combination of space and capability but lacks that modern styling. The interior is adorned with dated items and low-quality materials. 

The 2019 Toyota Tundra CrewMax, however, offers a spacious interior to accommodate the whole family. The CrewMax has room for six, which includes rear-facing third-row seats that can be folded down. Whether it's legroom, headroom, or shoulder room, you'll have plenty of space. Prior to its competitors' reworking and making bigger trucks, the Tundra was already among the roomiest trucks in its class. The CrewMax has an expanded center console, more versatile storage, and a spacious backseat that seats three passengers.

With regard to the interior and seating, the Chevy Silverado wins the prize for the largest cabin in the segment. Compared to the competition, both the RAM and Ford make good use of the cabin space with the decent rear room, while the Tundra offers the least amount of rear space. When comparing the cargo volume, again the Chevrolet has the most at 61 cubic feet. Standard interior features of the 2021 Toyota Tundra include:

  • Power driver seat
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Integrated backup camera
  • 60/40 split fold-up rear seats
  • Automatic dual-zone climate control
  • Leather upholstery

How intuitive is the 2019 Toyota Tundra Infotainment System?

Toyota Tundra CrewMax offers a 6.1-inch touchscreen for the 2019 model year. There is also a 7-inch touch screen available. The Entune infotainment system runs on both screens, but there is only one USB port and limited smartphone connectivity. Neither Apple CarPlay or Android Auto is available. Only one USB port and three 12-volt outlets are provided. No optional packages are offering more.

It is fairly simple to connect via Bluetooth or USB audio on a daily basis. The controls are clear and well labeled with a large font size. Along with the touchscreen, there are three primary climate-control knobs and six main buttons. However, the Tundra lacks a fancy interior, but the infotainment system is very intuitive and easy to use. All the standard Infotainment features are listed below:

  • 6.1-inch Touchscreen Infotainment System/ Available 7-inch touchscreen
  • 6-speaker sound system or 12 Speaker JBL Audio System
  • AM/FM CD player
  • USB port with iPod connection and control
  • SiriusXM Satellite radio
  • Available HD radio
  • Available navigation

2019 Toyota Tundra Exterior

5.0/10

The 2019 Toyota Tundra CrewMax has been a sales success for many reasons. One of those reasons is because it's the only full-size pickup in its class with three rows and full-size rear doors. Yet, what you and others will notice first is the strong presence with bold styling that denotes muscular capability. The CrewMax is available in a single bed length of 5.5-feet. A palette of sharp angles, bold character lines, available chrome accents, and special paint colors make it stand out from the crowd. 

The 2019 Tundra CrewMax includes the bold, tough design of Toyota trucks while adding features that make it easier for you to get the job done. Its grille stands out due to its unique look, which is accentuated by sleek headlamps and chrome trim, while a strong bumper with integrated fog lamps and tow hooks protects the front end from damage. Sleek wheels are wrapped in big tires to convey Tundra's strength. The CrewMax presents your image as a brave adventurer.

2019 Toyota Tundra Competition

7.4/10

2019 Toyota Tundra vs 2019 RAM 1500

The Tundra and the RAM both have good towing capabilities, but the Tundra is a little better. The RAM 1500's V8 engine has a lot of power, but its performance is somewhat limited because of its bulk. The Tundra CrewMax outperforms the RAM 1500 in this category. Its towing capacity and cargo capacity are also greater than the RAM 1500. Despite subjective opinions, most people agree that the Tundra looks better than the RAM and has an overall more elegant appearance.

2019 Toyota Tundra vs 2019 Ford F-150

Even though both trucks are somewhat similar, they have their own unique features. Both vehicles use different types of engines, the Tundra uses a V8 while F-150 uses a V6. Further, the F-150 is much more fuel-efficient than the Toyota Tundra. However, when we consider how much cargo the Tundra can carry as well as its towing capacity, it is clearly the superior vehicle of the two. 

2019 Toyota Tundra vs 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Chevrolet Silverado and Toyota Tundra are two popular full-sized pickups in an extremely competitive market. There is no clear leader here since these two pickups are among the best-selling full-size pickups. With a powerful V6 engine, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado delivers good performance, despite its heavyweight. Also, the cargo capacity of this vehicle is superior. The fuel economy, however, is similar. 

2019 Toyota Tundra Final Verdict

4.5/10

The 2019 Toyota Tundra CrewMax provides excellent towing ability with impressive power and a comfortable ride along with class-leading style and is available at a competitive price. The Toyota Tundra CrewMax is a full-size pickup that can handle the entire load, no matter where the job takes you. This versatile pickup truck has everything you need to make your everyday drive a little easier.
