One year after the 2022 Toyota Tundra full-size pickup debuted, the 2023 Tundra enters the new model year with a new SX Package that offers an updated appearance.
The lineup for the 2023 Tundra has SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, and 1794 grades available. TRD Pro and the Capstone grade return to the Tundra lineup, and they are both offered exclusively with the i-FORCE MAX powertrain.
The new SX Package is available exclusively on SR5 grades in 4×2 or 4×4. It is offered on Double Cab models with 6.5-foot bed and CrewMax models with the 5.5-foot bed.
The Tundra offers two new powertrains: a twin-turbo V6 engine and a hybrid twin-turbo V6.
The i-FORCE 3.5-liter, twin-turbo V6 uses DOHC 24-valve cylinder heads and Dual VVTi systems to yield 389 horsepower and 479 lb.-ft. of torque.
Standard on Tundra TRD Pro models and 4×4 trucks equipped with the TRD Off-Road package are off-road upgrades, including Multi-Terrain Select, CRAWL Control, and Downhill Assist Control.
The third-generation Tundra switched leaf springs in favor of a new multi-link rear suspension. The maximum towing capacity for Tundra increases 17.6% over the previous generation, to 12,000 pounds. The maximum payload increases to 1,940 pounds, an improvement of more than 11%.
Additionally, the Tundra is available with a rear air suspension system with automatic and manual leveling functions.
Tundra models come standard with Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 on every grade. The system includes:
- Pre-collision System with Pedestrian Detection with intersection support
- Road Sign Assist (RSA)
- Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)
- Lane Keeping Technology: Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/ SA), Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) and Sway Warning System
