The main rivals for the truck are Ram 1500 and Ford F-150.

2018 Toyota Tundra Diesel

The rumors say that the truck will get V8 Cummis turbo diesel type of engine with the capacity of 5.0 L. 2018 Toyota Tundra Cummins equipped will produce around 300 horsepower. It's one of the strongest among 2018 Toyota Tundra rumors.

2018 Toyota Tundra diesel price is likely to be started higher than for V8-powered engine, despite the less power output. That is because diesel engine has more torque on low rpm, which leads to 2018 Toyota Tundra towing capacity increase.

2018 Toyota Tundra Redesign

There may be not as much changes in the design aspect as it’s expected. To begin with, 2018 Tundra redesign is going to have a modified grill which will look more elegant and graceful in comparison to the previous model. The new alloy wheels are also promised to be made in a more elegant way. The frame itself is promised to be upgraded. Even though it is made of steel the frame is going to lose 20 lbs. There is no much information now for 2018 Toyota Tundra news and changes so we expect a full review closer to the actual release date.

2018 Toyota Tundra Crewmax

Crewmax is a popular modification of Tundra, which might be back for 2018. It is 6-seat crew cab, which designed to accommodate more people with an adequate level of comfort. The 2018 model year truck might get this option but under a different name.

2018 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro

This modification debuted only in the current generation of the vehicle, just like smaller Tacoma and 4Runner, providing a special off-road designed edition. We expect that TRD Pro will debut a little bit later than standard 2018 Tundra, because it has major design change and lots of tweaks in suspension - TRD department just need some more time to prepare.
