Toyota Tundra Exterior Design Rating

2021 Tundra Exterior

A classic large American truck, the Tundra stands proud with its bulky front end composed of large, wrap-around headlights, a prominent grille, and a chunky lower fascia. Lower-tier trims come outfitted with regular halogen headlights while LEDs are installed on most mid- to upper-tier models along with daytime running lights and fog lamps. Each Tundra model sports a unique grille, with chrome or blacked-out inners and surrounds, mesh or crossbar styling, and either a Toyota badge or, in the case of the TRD Pro, "TOYOTA" lettering. The TRD Pro also stands out with its Rigid Industries LED fog lights, raised suspension, TRD front skid plates, and model-specific BBS wheels. The Tundra rolls on either 18-inch steel wheels in SR and SR5 form and 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels on all upper trims.

Buyers can opt for either double cab or crew cab configurations, paired to long, medium, and short box beds.

The Tundra is offered in various configurations, all of which will dictate the full-size pickup truck's dimensions. A 145.7-inch wheelbase underpins the truck in CrewMax guise while the Double Cab with the longer bed gets an extended, 164.6-inch wheelbase. Body length varies but comes in at 228.9 inches on the CrewMax variants and 247.8 inches on Double Cabs with the long box. Crew cab variants with the 4x2 layout measure 75.8 inches tall increasing to 76.2 inches when in 4x4 guise 4x4. Height for the double cab variants ranges between 76 and 76.4 inches. A width of 79.9 inches is shared across the board.

There are three bed sizes available; on crew cab variants, a 5.5-foot bed is standard while on extended cab variants, a 6.5-foot bed is standard and an 8.1-foot bed is available. Most variants ride at around 10 inches from the ground, but the TRD Pro has a raised suspension with 10.6 inches of clearance and an overall height of 77.2 inches.

The lightest Tundra tips the scales at a curb weight of 5,170 pounds but in its heaviest form, the Tundra is a heavyweight at 5,680 lbs.

Exterior Colors

For 2021, Toyota replaces last year's new color, Army Green, with Lunar Rock on the TRD Pro's list of exterior colors. There are only four colors for the base SR model: Midnight Black, Silver Sky, Super White, and Barcelona Red. Several more hues are unlocked for the SR5 including Quicksand (Beige), Voodoo Blue, Army Green, Cement, Magnetic Grey, and Cavalry Blue. Along with those, the Limited also gets Smoked Mesquite - a metallic bronze-like hue - and Wind Chill Pearl. Every model features different exterior design elements and styling cues that are complemented uniquely by the different colors.
