It seems like the previous generation of the Toyota Tundra was around forever. Now that we have a new Toyota Tundra generation, we see an advanced full-size pickup truck that delivers more desired features than ever before. Here are six things that put the 2023 Toyota Tundra ahead of the competition.

1. The 2023 Tundra is still one of the safest trucks available

For years, Toyota has been developing the Toyota Safety Sense package of features to keep you safe and secure out on the road. This package in the new Toyota Tundra gives you:

  • Forward collision warning
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Pedestrian detection
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Lane-departure alert with steering assist
  • Lane-tracing assist
  • High-beam assist

The Tundra has a more comprehensive safety package than most other full-size trucks.

2. Going off-road is easier in the new Toyota Tundra with the multi-terrain monitor

Some trims offer this feature as an optional item, while the TRD Pro has it as part of the standard features list. The multi-terrain monitor is a surround-view camera for off-roading. You’ll see the tricky terrain and obstacles without needing an external spotter.

3. Power running boards are found on the 2023 Toyota Tundra Capstone

The power running boards feature a power BedStep with manual and automatic settings to extend and retract the side running boards that come out as soon as you open the door. A BedStep that extends from under the rear bumper to make it easier for you to get in and out of the truck bed.

4. The i-Force Max powertrain is strong in this full-size pickup truck

The i-Force Max powertrain gives you a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine plus a hybrid electric engine. This power system mates to a 10-speed automatic transmission to deliver 437 horsepower and 583 lb-ft of torque. You can tow up to 11,450 pounds with this new Toyota Tundra and carry up to 1,680 pounds of payload in the bed.

5. The 2023 Tundra has an impressively-large 14-inch touchscreen

Toyota gives you the option of a 14-inch touchscreen in the SR5 trim but offers it as a standard feature on all other trims. This infotainment system uses either a 6-speaker or 12-speaker JBL audio system. Connectivity to this massive infotainment screen comes through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

6. The 2023 Toyota Tundra has an easy-closing tailgate

Actually, the 2023 Tundra has a tailgate that’s easy to lower and raise. It slowly lowers on its own, and you can close it with one finger to secure all of the gear in the bed. You won’t need to worry about a heavy tailgate that’s difficult to open or close when you drive this full-size pickup truck.
