The Toyota Tundra is arguably the hardest working vehicle in the Toyota lineup. Thanks to a strong powertrain lineup and performance-focused features, the 2019 Toyota Tundra offers drivers the ability to tow up to 10,200-pounds or carry up to 1,730-pounds when properly equipped. Plus, with six trim levels in the 2019 Tundra’s lineup, it’s easy for drivers to find a new Toyota Tundra model that fits their current needs, even on a tight budget.
Whether you need a vehicle for the worksite or a daily driver to transport the family around town, the 2019 Toyota Tundra lineup has a model for you. Let’s compare the Tundra’s two base trim offerings, SR and SR5, to see what they offer budget-conscious shoppers.

Budget-conscious shoppers looking for a full-size pickup truck will likely gravitate towards the base level SR and SR5 trims on the 2019 Tundra thanks to their lower starting MSRPs. While both of these models are pretty similar in overall mechanics and performance, a few key differences in their standard and available feature offerings means they usually appeal to different customers.
Thanks to a stripped back feature set and standard seating for only three passengers (two if you want to be comfortable), the 2019 Tundra SR trim is most often utilized as a work truck. Aside from Toyota Safety Sense, the SR trim offers no additional active safety and has a lot fewer customization options compared to other Tundra trims.
If you plan on using the 2019 Toyota Tundra as a daily driver, we suggest moving up to the SR5 trim which offers standard seating for up to six passengers and a much richer set of features including fog lights, intermittent windshield wipers, TUNDRA badging, a sliding rear window, an under-seat storage compartment, and two optional packages for drivers looking for increased amenities without moving up to a higher trim.
