Best Pickup Trucks of 2017

2016 Toyota Tundra

Though the 2016 Toyota Tundra sits at the bottom in our full size trucks rankings, this pickup does offer strong benefits to the right customer. The Tundra offers above-average reliability, according to J.D. Power and Associates, as well as above-average safety ratings. In tests run by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Tundra earned four Good scores and one Acceptable score, and tests done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Tundra earned mostly 4-star scores and one 5-star score.

The Toyota Tundra is a particularly good option for potential buyers who enjoy off-roading, thanks to the available TRD Pro model and TRD Pro off-road accessory package, which beefs up the truck’s ride height, suspension, and wheels for better all-terrain access. With up to 10,500 pounds of towing capacity, the Tundra is also a capable vehicle for pulling a load. However, critics question Toyota’s decision to offer the Tundra with just two V8 engines (310 and 381 horsepower, respectively), and particularly inefficient ones at that. Reviewers also say the Tundra’s bumpy ride quality and plain cabin are among the truck’s biggest problems. The Toyota Tundra was last redesigned in 2007 and last refreshed in 2014.
