The latest reports suggest we will have to wait for a little bit more to see the all-new Tundra. Therefore, most of the things are about to remain the same for the next year. Naturally, this includes the 2021 Toyota Tundra interior as well. Often criticized for outdated look and technologies, this cabin actually has a lot of great things to offer. Therefore, the following paragraphs are some kind of a breakdown of the current cabin. Here some of the best and also some of the worst things about it. Also, we will pat a lot of attention to standard equipment, tech goodies and other things about it, including color options and similar things.
2021 Toyota Tundra Interior Space
The first thing we should consider about the 2021 Toyota Tundra interior is the space, which is also one of the strongest points about this cabin. Moreover, this is the most spacious and most comfortable cabin in the class, no matter if we are talking about a double cab and crew cab segment. When it comes to the Double Cab model, you may count on a pretty generous amount of legroom in the first row, which measures impressive 42.5 inches. The second row is also quite decent, as it measures around 35 inches of legroom, which is on part with second rows of many mid-size crossovers.
When it comes to the CrewMax model, things are very impressive. Once again, the first row offers 42.5 inches, while the second row offers almost the same amount of legroom, 42.3 inches. This is something you won’t even get from many full-size luxury SUVs and crossovers, so you may presume how spacious and comfortable this truck actually is.
Finally, we should mention that the current Tundra is one of the rare pickup trucks that still have a front bench in the offer, so the seating capacity can actually go up to six adult passengers.
2021 Toyota Tundra Interior Quality
This is where many critics see the current generation outdated and that definitely stands. As we are talking about the vehicle that has been introduced way back in 2007, it’s no wonder that it doesn’t feature particularly modern aesthetics. Moreover, the dashboard definitely belongs to the previous era of the automotive industry. Still, if you don’t care too much about interior aesthetics, you will definitely like this interior, as the overall quality is actually pretty good. Although we are talking mostly about hard plastics, the cabin actually seems durable and will definitely last for decades.
Things are particularly great in higher trims, where you can count on finer materials, such as leather, wood etc. Also, higher trims offer more attractive color schemes.
When it comes to the 2021 Toyota Tundra colors, we don’t expect to see too many changes. Moreover, things should remain pretty much the same. This means the choice will largely depend on the trim level and exterior color. For example, base models are available with vinyl upholstery and come with Graphite colors. On the other side, higher trim comes with finer materials, including cloth and leather seats, so the choice includes a couple of more colors, such as Brown, Black, Sand Beige, Graphite. Finally, keep in mind some trim levels, such as TRD Pro, come exclusively with Black interior.
As we already mentioned, base Tundra models come with vinyl upholstery, while the cloth is reserved for mid-range options. Of course, high trims like Limited or 1794 Edition come with leather upholstery. Also, base models come with manual adjustability. On the other side, higher trims offer 10- or 12-way adjustable driver’s seats, as well as a 6-way adjustable passenger seat.
When it comes to tech goodies, the first thing we should mention is that the infotainment system has been updated and now comes with better graphics and software, as well as with goodies like Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Of course, these things will carry on in the 2021 Toyota Tundra interior as well. Base models will come with a 7-inch touchscreen, while a bigger 8-inch unit will be available in higher trims. Among other standard tech goodies, we should also mention things like satellite radio, three USB ports, voice recognition, Bluetooth, a six-speaker stereo, and a Wi-Fi hot spot. In higher trims, you may also count on goodies like universal garage door opener, a sliding horizontal rear window, a vertical power rear window, a seven- or nine-speaker stereo, dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, a power etc.
Toyota models have always been famous for long lists of standard safety features. Tundra is no exception, so the next-year model should carry on with goodies like adaptive cruise control, a rearview camera, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, automatic high-beam headlights etc. Additionally, you can get things like front and rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.
1 thought on “2021 Toyota Tundra Interior Features and Specs”
I bought a 2019 tundra because it has integrated navigation. This will probably be my last tundra because of dynamic navigation. Everyone I have talked to do not like the fact that they, after the initial 3 yr period, have to pay approximately $200 every 2 years (includes visit to service department) to subscribe to the navigation app. Navigation is a very handy feature, but most people do not use it enough to justify the subscription costs. To me, its a no brainer; I just quit buying Toyotas until they give a lifetime subscription and no trips to the service department for renewal with the purchase.
