Toyota Tundra Interior & Cargo Rating

2021 Tundra Interior

As a dedicated workhorse, and an old one at that, the Tundra's interior isn't the most luxurious or comfortable, but it's somewhat pleasant in a bare necessities kind of way. The dashboard, center console, and door constituents are all large and bulky and most of the surfaces are covered in hard-touch materials. The key touchpoints get some soft-touch applications but the quality ranges from low to high grade depending on the model chosen and even the most luxurious trims are a far cry from what the competition has available. The large number of buttons strewn across the dash gives away the Tundra's age, and the dated infotainment system is a far cry from the best systems available. It's spacious, and will likely stand the test of time, but it's not the best cabin to spend your time in.

Seating and Interior Space

Whether in the double cab or CrewMax conversion, the Tundra can be set up to seat either five or six passengers. Either way, the cabin is spacious with the driver and front passenger spoiled with 39.7 inches. of headroom and 42.5 inches of legroom. The extended cab offers 34.7 inches of legroom in the rear and the CrewMax up to 42.3 inches. The seats are commodious and provide plenty of comfort and support for most body types. With plenty of adjustability, the steering wheel and driver's seat can be set optimally to offer optimal outward visibility and ergonomic reach of the controls. It's not a class-leading environment, but it's not a bad one either. Yes.

Interior Colors and Materials

The interior quality, upholstery, and trimmings are all dependent on the model, but the Tundra's cabin could really do with some sprucing up regardless. The SR comes solely with graphite-hued fabric or vinyl seating surfaces while the SR5 gets cloth upholstery offered in either Black, Graphite, or Sand Beige. Leather seating upholstery with the same color options is offered with the mid-spec Limited, but only plain black premium leather is found in the Platinum. The TRD Pro gets black leather upholstery stitched with red accenting while the 1794 Edition gets unique Saddle Brown leather with suede inserts.

2021 Tundra Trunk and Cargo Space

There are three bed length options available for the Tundra; a 5.5-ft short bed, 6.5-ft standard bed, and an 8.1-ft long bed. Each bed is 22.2 inches deep and 50 inches wide between the wheel arches. Payload capacities vary depending on the drivetrain and bed length chosen, CrewCab variants can carry up to a maximum of 1,660 pounds in the optimal guise while the extended cab variants can haul up to 1,730 lbs also in their optimal setups.

In-cabin storage solutions are rather average, the door side pockets are deep but impractically narrow, limiting their use. The cupholders, up front and in the rear, suffer the same flaw as they're too small and positioned unintuitively, making them difficult to use. The passenger-side glove box is relatively small, too, and the small-item storage compartments in the center console are oddly located.

2021 Tundra Infotainment and Features


It might be based on old bones, but the Tundra still has a surprisingly broad array of features and Toyota has made sure to include lots of driver assists that several other truck makers don't fit as standard. The standard spec includes remote keyless entry, four-way manually-adjustable front seats, and basic air conditioning. Toyota's Safety Sense P suite is included, too, along with Toyota's Star Safety System, a rearview camera, and trailer-sway control. The SR5 gets an auto-dimming rearview mirror, horizontal power sliding rear window with privacy glass, and a rear under-seat storage compartment. In the Limited, there's a leather-clad, tilt & telescoping steering wheel, heated, power-adjustable front seats, and dual-zone automatic climate control. The top-tier Platinum comes with the best of the best including power tilt/telescoping steering wheel adjustability, extended power-adjustability in the front seats, and perforated leather seating upholstery. It is further outfitted with a blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert as well as with front and rear parking sensors.


As the entry-level model, the SR is the only one that comes with the smaller seven-inch infotainment touchscreen, which at least includes Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and even Amazon Alexa. A six-speaker sound system is standard and the basic suite comprises AM/FM radio and SiriusXM compatibility. Other connectivity options include Bluetooth and a USB media port. Every other trim is outfitted with an eight-inch touchscreen. The double cab version of the SR5 gets a seven-speaker audio layout while the CrewMax version gets nine speakers. Onboard navigation and nine-speaker premium audio setup is standard in the Limited. The Platinum and 1794 Edition are equipped with a 12-speaker JBL surround-sound audio system and receive advanced navigation and voice recognition systems.
