15 Trucks You Should Buy Over The Toyota Tundra

The Toyota Tundra is an impressive truck. Car Max states, “Need a full-sized truck that can fit your work crew during the day and your family in the off-hours? A pick-up like the Toyota Tundra is up for the job. 2017–2019 Tundra CrewMax cabs are extra-large with 42.5 inches of legroom in the front and 42.3 inches in the rear row with seating for five passengers.”

But what if you aren’t in the mood for a Tundra. We’d recommend the impressive Ford Raptor. Car and Driver reports, “The Raptor owns the road, and pretty much anywhere else you drive it, thanks to its big all-terrain tires, lane-filling stance, and widened Ford F-150 body.”

We’d also recommend a Dodge Ram 1500 if you’re just not into a Toyota Tundra. Car Max reports, “It delivers one of the nicest rides in the segment with its standard five-link coil-spring rear suspension system with twin-tube shocks and an optional air suspension system on 2017–2019 models.”

Here are the 15 trucks you should buy over the Toyota Tundra.
