Researching similar models is the first step to ensuring that you walk away from a new vehicle purchase with the right fit. While some vehicle features like the number of interior seats or the overall space for cargo are easy to select based on need, other performance and amenity-related choices can be a little harder. At Serra Toyota, we want our customers to be confident in their vehicle choice. That’s why we make online comparison pages like this one to help shoppers understand the subtle (and not so subtle) differences between similar models.   

Today, we are comparing the new 2019 Toyota Tundra and outgoing 2018 Toyota Tundra to see where they differ. While many of the 2019 Tundra’s trims and features have not changed, slight differences in the starting price and trim level selections may help car shoppers choose between these two available models.
