2019 Toyota Tundra SX Photo Gallery: Value-Driven Style

91-state-fair-texas-2018-manufacturer-event copy II

Earlier this month at the 2018 State Fair of Texas, we got our first look at Toyota's newest Tundra style package: the 2019 SX. Though new, it will remind many truck lovers of the oh-so-familiar midnight, black-out or otherwise "murdered-out" exterior designs favored by pickup manufacturers.

As we noted in our video, the SX will stack on top of the 2019 Toyota Tundra SR5 trim level and will be available only with the 5.7-liter V-8 as a double-cab 4x4 or 4x2. We like the look without all the badges and especially the new wheels. Here's a closer look.

Nice truck, but the clock is ticking. This truck is getting old

Nice truck - but the interior looks like my 2013 F150.

"trailer brake output", why not just use + or - like all other manufacturers?

Here come the liberals demanding looks over functionality and wonder why the weight and price of trucks keeps jumping...

Liberals always demand a shiny new toy because they get depressed with their old toy, and Johnny has one of those new ones...


Give me a break, I will take a 1980's-ish (if you know what I mean and can think for yourself and not group think) pickup any day that weighs less, and costs less to maintain. We do not need all of this garbage that is in trucks today!

nice looking truck. Needs an overdue update. But overall great value and dependability!

Had an 07 Tundra TRD, which was decent competing with the competition at the time. Unfortunately Toyota fell asleep in updating engine/transmision to todays standards for economy. I have no plans buying another Toyota when there is much better options available today.

No badging and No chrome...lets hope this mentality spreads to all auto manufactures

Hey look, another truck with an interior superior to the 2019 Silverado.

@papajim, Give me a break! These cost less to maintain than any GM truck!

Substantially UNCHANGED for more than 10 years

@pelosijim, Give me a break! These cost less to maintain than any GM truck!

and still a better looking truck than GM

what's with the wanabe hood scoop?

The single most important feature of a vehicle is that it keeps running.
The Tundra does that.

IS THE THE NEW CHEVYOTA TUNDERADO? OH WAIT HOLY SMOKES I THOUGHT IT WAS THE NEW CHEVYOTA TUNDERADO HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Looks better with the color matched trim and debadged.

Weighs less? This truck has some of the highest curb weights in the half-ton class.

The Tundra is extremely expensive to repair and maintain. Toyota marks the AC Delco parts they use up 500% and puts them in "Genuine Toyota" packages. Just replacing the starter on this truck is an 8 hour job and the starter itself costs between $400 and $500. The whole job typically runs between $1000 and $1300 if you have a dealer do it. The 07-19 Tundra's starter is famous for living short lives. Same with the smog pumps and power steering pumps. A failed smog pump will leave you stranded and most dealers will charge $800-1000 to replace. Power steering pumps will run you at least $400 (common issue on the 07+ Tundras) and most dealers will want $300-400 to replace it. The rear axle is a common failure issue on the 07+ Tundras and I've seen reports of up to $2500 to replace the rear end. Famous for soft carriers that wear and allow the pin to fall out, grenading the whole rear end. Also famous for premature wheel bearing and carrier bearing failures. $$$$

That's without even mentioning the cost of dealing with Toyota rust. Frame rust, wheel well rust, bed rust, tailgate rust. All come faster than expected and turn into major jobs to deal with.

Theyre beefy idk what all these people are saying they have problems with em. My friend runs one on her horse farm with a gooseneck in it bc she didnt want the high cost of a 3/4 or 1 ton truck anymore. its a 2012 with the 5.7l and I've maintained it since the warranty expired. Has 166k on it now and all I've done was the usual maintainance. Straight up farm work horse lives a rough life and it runs with all their other 3/4 ton trucks without eating up front end parts and guess what...its not aluminum haha.

Ever see something and think, "I don't really need that"?
Thats what I see looking that Tundra. Nothing about it says "I got have it". Plenty of guys debadge their trucks and put black wheels on them. Big deal.

@Dale

What are you driving these days?

Isn't it nice to know what that + and - means? For that matter, how many people actually USE that +/- button?

--- Yet most people I see driving older Tundras today adamantly declare they will buy another Tundra when they have to replace it.

--- Superior in what way?

"and still a better looking truck than GM" ---- Posted by: Ford Rules GM Drools

--- And a damned sight better looking than Ford.

Nice looking truck. Notice how the fender wheel wells have stylish accent similar to the GM twins. The f-series wheel openings look like a pre-schooler learning to trace a circle. Boring.
