2020 Toyota Tundra Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 6.4

The 2020 Toyota Tundra has a dated-looking cabin with lower-quality materials than some competitors. Seating space is excellent, but comfort is lagging. Infotainment features are fairly easy to use.

  • "Step inside, and the Tundra's age becomes painfully obvious. There's a lot of room in here for passengers, but with a dated design, small storage compartments, a center console that doesn't even open all the way and uncomfortable seats, Toyota's full-size truck is hard to live with." -- CNET
  • The Tundra's interior is spacious and dotted with oversized features, but it's an outdated presentation and the materials in most models feel cheap and rubbery." -- Car and Driver
  • "The Tundra's interior is functional but dated by segment standards. … Build quality is OK, but we found issues with small items. The gas door wouldn't close all the way and most knobs and dials felt cheap, no matter how tight the tolerances were. There weren't any noticeable squeaks or rattles, or any large panel gaps, during our test." -- Edmunds (2019)

Seating

The Toyota Tundra seats up to six people. A front bench seat, cloth upholstery, and four-way manually adjustable front seats are standard. Optional features include front bucket seats, vinyl or leather upholstery, a 10-way or 12-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a six-way power-adjustable passenger seat, heated and ventilated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Both rows of seats in the Tundra have plenty of space, with excellent rear legroom in the CrewMax cab. However, the seats aren't as comfortable as what you'll find in rival pickups.

The Tundra has two complete sets of rear LATCH connectors, in addition to a tether anchor for the rear middle seat. The lower anchors in the Double Cab are set too deeply in the seats, but they’re easier to access in CrewMax models. The tether anchors can be hard to find.

  • Although its rear-seat legroom is among the best for crew cabs, the quality and layout of the Tundra's cabin are unimpressive, as well as short on amenities found in the fresher competition. The only salvation is the 1794 Edition, which has luscious saddle-brown leather-trimmed seating and ultrasuede accents." -- Car and Driver
  • "Those seated in the 60/40 split-folding rear bench of the 4-door double cab will find it to be one of most spacious extended cabs on the market. There is no such qualifier needed for the CrewMax, which would make 7-footers feel at home with its extended legroom and reclining seatback." -- Autotrader
  • "These are some of the worst seats in a full-size truck today. They're stiff and poorly supported and they lack lumbar adjustment. They also don't go low enough, so even average-height drivers will always have fitment issues. They're barely passable on road trips, likely causing discomfort after just a few hours on the road." -- Edmunds (2019)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2020 Tundra include a 7-inch touch screen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, satellite radio, three USB ports, voice recognition, Bluetooth, a six-speaker stereo, and a Wi-Fi hot spot. The Entune infotainment system is generally easy to use, though the virtual buttons are small, and some menus and functions can be hard to navigate through.

The Tundra also comes standard with a rearview camera, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, automatic high-beam headlights, and adaptive cruise control.

Optional features include an 8-inch touch screen, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a universal garage door opener, a sliding horizontal rear window, a vertical power rear window, a seven- or nine-speaker stereo, dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, a power sliding rear window, navigation, a 12-speaker JBL premium stereo, and a moonroof.

Available driver assistance features include front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert.

  • At least the in-car technology is getting better, with an available, 8-inch touchscreen running Toyota's Entune infotainment system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto finally join the party for 2020, but the rest of Entune remains about as serviceable as last year's tomatoes. The native navigation system is clunky, with multiple clicks needed just to enter an address, and the rest of Entune is hard to work through and frustrating to use." -- CNET
  • The Tundra's infotainment system is tolerable, functioning adequately and responsively but never intuitively. … The Entune system will not delight users with its tiny onscreen buttons, but our testing showed that its response time is faster than popular smartphones. Thankfully, the newly available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto make the system more intuitive and modern." -- Car and Driver
  • "The controls are large and well labeled with clear fonts. There are six main buttons next to the touchscreen and three main climate-control knobs. The Tundra may not have an upscale interior, but it is certainly easy to understand and use right away." -- Edmunds (2019)

Cargo

The Tundra is available with 5-foot-6-inch, 6-foot-6-inch, and 8-foot-1-inch beds. It's difficult to load cargo into this Toyota because of its high bed lift-in height and tall sidewalls.

  • "An abundance of cargo and storage space is expected with a pickup. While the Toyota is merely adequate in most areas, our testing revealed that the cavernous crew cab is able to hold 21 carry-on suitcases with its rear seat folded, two more than any other pickup." -- Car and Driver
  • "Also, the bed is large but very high, and load height is an issue. … Not only does the rear seat have a large hump in the center of the floor, the rear seat bottom is massive and takes up lots of space. The raised platform underneath prevents the loading of flat items. The back seat offers lots of cubic space, but it's not laid out well. Fitting big cargo items is difficult." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "Another gripe about the Tundra is that nothing much is happening in the cargo bed. Compared with the Ram's clever cargo management system and bodyside storage compartments or the Ford F-150's bed extender and deployable tailgate step, it's not too advanced." -- Automobile Magazine (2014)
