2016 Toyota Tundra Platinum

Pros: High level of refinement (particularly on upper-line models) and good driving dynamics; quality interior materials; good cabin ergonomics

Cons: The 4-wheel drive is an inconvenient part-time system; fuel economy may come up a bit short compared to some domestic rivals

CG Says: All 2016 Toyota Tundras get revised audio systems with better connectivity. A larger 38-gallon fuel tank is standard on but the base SR, while SR5 and 1794 Edition get freshened front-end styling. It might not have as many configuration options as its domestic-brand rivals, but what Tundra does offer should be more than enough for both commercial and recreational truck buyers. This big rig demands serious consideration, even from those who have remained loyal to one of the Detroit 3.
