The Toyota Tundra was Japan’s first entry in America’s full-size truck market. Though initially there were teething issues, Toyota was a quick learner and created a fine competitor in no time. For 2024, the Tundra Limited CrewMax Hybrid 4×4 continues to show that Toyota is a player worthy of consideration. Let’s explore the powertrain, interior, and exterior design, brought to life by the Tundra’s rugged Smoked Mesquite paint and black 20-inch alloy wheels. Base price starts at $60,625, or $66,978 for a fully loaded one like ours.

This 2024 Toyota Tundra bids farewell to the V8 engine, embracing a new era of performance with its 3.4L i-Force MAX Twin-Turbo V6 Hybrid powertrain. Generating an impressive 437 horsepower and 583 foot-pounds of torque, this hybrid engine delivers exhilarating performance while also offering respectable fuel efficiency. Paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, the Tundra delivers seamless power delivery and a smooth driving experience across various terrains.

The 2024 Toyota Tundra offers an array of trim options, ensuring that there’s something for every driver’s preference and requirement, from the rugged TRD Pro to the luxurious Limited trim. The exterior design offers a perfect blend of ruggedness and sophistication. From the striking Smoked Mesquite paint option to the bold character lines that accentuate its muscular profile, every detail exudes confidence and style. The inclusion of 20-inch black Alloy Wheels and blacked-out accents further enhances its aggressive look.

Stepping inside the Tundra, you are greeted by a fully equipped and spacious interior consisting of several notable features. The centerpiece is a massive 14-inch infotainment system, which supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity for seamless smartphone integration. Additionally, the 12.3-inch Digital Gauge Cluster provides essential vehicle information at a glance, while the 12-speaker JBL sound system delivers immersive audio performance.

From Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection and Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, the Tundra offers peace of mind on every journey. Additional safety features like Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert are also great to have, especially if you’re towing.

Despite its size, maneuvering this truck among traffic is surprisingly effortless, thanks in part to the intuitive 360-degree camera system. The suspension provides a smooth ride on various road surfaces. Moreover, the hybrid powertrain delivers impressive acceleration and responsiveness, what you’d expect in a truck.
