Toyota has eliminated the option to purchase a Toyota Tundra with a V6 engine in the 2015 models, with either a 4.6-liter or 5.7-liter V8 as standard depending on model. The smaller V8 produces 310 peak horsepower and 327 foot-pounds of torque, while the 5.7 liter delivers 381 horsepower and 401 foot-pounds of torque. Neither engine achieves impressive fuel economy for the class, with the 4.6-liter rating 16 miles per gallon and the 5.7-liter only 15 in combined driving.

Body options for the Tundra include standard, double and CrewMax cabs, as well as short, medium and long wheelbases. Four-wheel drive is available as an option. Several trim levels are available, including a luxurious Platinum trim that upgrades the wheels, sound system and interior comfort over the standard model. The 1794 trim is named after a ranch in Texas where the Tundra factory is located and adds several ranch-themed cosmetic touches to the Tundra. Finally, the TRD Pro trim is designed with off-roading in mind, adding several performance upgrades, including Bilstien shocks and a raised suspension.
