The Toyota Tundra is a pickup truck manufactured in the United States by the Japanese manufacturer Toyota since May 1999. The Tundra was the first North American full-size pickup to be built by a Japanese manufacturer. The Tundra was nominated for the North American Truck of the Year award and was Motor Trend magazine's Truck of the Year in 2000 and 2008. Initially built in a new Toyota plant in Princeton, Indiana, production was consolidated in 2008 to Toyota's San Antonio, Texas, factory and is the only full-size pickup truck manufactured in Texas.
Since 2008, all Toyota Tundra full-size pickups have been built in San Antonio, Texas. That's a fact Toyota dealers in Texas are very proud of, as every Tundra and Tacoma sold there wears a sticker on the back window patterned after the state flag that says "Built Here, Lives Here." You could argue that Austin isn't like the rest of Texas, but it's still in the heart of truck country, so our 2018 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition was right at home in the pickup-dominated landscape.
The 1794 Edition might be the most Texan of all Tundra models—it's named for the year the JLC Ranch, the site of Toyota Motor Manufacturing Texas, was founded. Like all 1794 Editions, our tester was a CrewMax model with the 5.5-foot bed and came powered by Toyota's 5.7-liter V-8, which produces 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. Our truck also came equipped with part-time four-wheel drive and an assortment of TRD Performance parts (as part of the TRD Off-Road package) and other accessories that drove the price up to $54,796. The 1794 Edition helps justify its MSRP with an interior swathed in soft, smooth leather. The seats, center console, shifter, dash, and door panels are covered in rich-feeling cowhide, which lends a Western look with its saddle-brown color and white contrast stitching.

The V8 offers plenty of power, and the six-speed automatic transmission is quick to kick down a gear when trying to pass on the highway. The drivetrain also had no trouble climbing steep grades. A few minutes on a gravel road was the closest I got to off-roading in the Tundra. It wasn't challenging enough to really test the Tundra's capabilities, but if the road ever got rockier or more rutted, the truck would have been prepared thanks to the TRD Off-Road package's off-road-tuned Bilstein shocks, engine and fuel tank skidplates, and the aforementioned A/T tires. The Tundra 4x4 1794 CrewMax also offers 10.4 inches of ground clearance. I didn't have a chance to tow or haul anything on my trip, but the 4x4 1794 Edition has a max towing capacity of 8,800 pounds and a max payload of 1,530 pounds.
The Tundra still ticks most of the right boxes for today's truck buyer, but competitors are continually raising the bar in the full-size pickup category. If the next-gen Tundra can deliver class-leading fuel economy, modern tech, and improved material quality in addition to the comfort, capability, and durability today's Tundra already offers, then Texans will have something they can really be proud of.
