2017 Toyota Tundra

$30,120 | U.S. News Score: 7.3/10 | Sales Decline Last Month: 8.5% (See Details Below)

The Toyota Tundra’s standard and available V8 engines (310 and 381 horsepower) have as much brawn as you’ll need (though its gas mileage is low for a full-size truck). If you’re looking for first-rate off-road capability, go with Tundra TRD Pro, as it can traverse a variety of challenging terrain. If you opt for a Crew Cab configuration, adults will be able to get comfortable in both rows of the quiet cabin.

So far in 2017, the Tundra is second-to-last in the class in terms of sales, ahead of only the Titan. Last month, Toyota dealers sold 8.5 percent fewer Tundra models than they did in the preceding month, which is the second-largest decline in the segment during that period. For the year, Tundra sales are down 2.4 percent.

To counter slowing demand, Toyota dealers are currently offering some buyer-friendly deals. Financing as low as 1.9 percent is available for up to five years on the purchase of a new Tundra. If you prefer to lease, Toyota is offering a competitive lease deal of $369 per month for three years with $3,999 due at signing in some regions.

Keep in mind that slow sales mean you have a better chance of negotiating the Tundra’s price down from what you see on the sticker. If bargaining isn’t your forte, use the U.S. News & World Report Best Price Program to find the dealer in your area with the lowest prices.
