Recap

The Tundra is Toyota's full-size vehicle, slotting over the Tacoma. It is offered with 3 engine selections, rear- or 4x4, three cab configurations, and with a basic or lengthy bed.

Automobile Summary

The Tundra is a tiny gamer in the full-size vehicle sector because of its aging powertrains as well as absence of improvement compared with competitors from General Motors, Ford, and also Ram. A 4.0-liter V-6 producing 270 hp as well as 278 lb-ft of torque, a 4.6-liter V-8 making 310 hp as well as 327 lb-ft, and a 5.7-liter V-8 producing 381 hp as well as 401 lb-ft paired to a five- or six-speed automated carry over from the pre-refresh Tundra. Toyota fine-tuned the vehicle by boosting the ride high quality, retuning the suspension for better stability, and also decreasing road noise to enhance comfort on-road. Off the sidewalk, the vehicle stays comfy, straining rough surfaces. Relating to gas economy, the EPA rates the rear-drive Toyota Tundra 16/20 mpg city/highway for V-6 versions, 15/19 mpg with the 4.6-liter V-8, and 13/18 with the 5.7-liter V-8. Four-wheel drive is only readily available on the V-8 versions as well as they are rated at 14/18 mpg for the 4.6-liter while the 5.7-liter achieves 13/17 mpg.

While Toyota improved the 2014 Tundra's interior, it hangs back rivals because of irregular use of soft as well as difficult plastics. Wind sound stays a concern regardless of initiatives to earn the cabin more premium compared to before. Enhanced seats make the cabin a better place to hang out in while the large back seats have enough area for full-sized adults. The enhancement of a brand-new infomercial system as well as conventional Entune Costs Audio improves the 2014 Tundra.

Relying on the design, the Toyota Tundra has a three- as well as four-star general security rating from the NHTSA (from a feasible five stars) while IIHS has offered it an excellent rating across four classifications (excellent is the highest possible score) other than the little overlap front classification, where it has not been tested.

What We Think

The Tundra's carryover powertrains hold it back when as compared to full-size trucks from GM, Ford, and Ram, which are geared up with advanced and also efficient engines and also transmissions. In an Initial Examination review of a 2014 Tundra 1794 CrewMax Edition, we said that the new model remains to hang back its competitors in fuel economy, presenting a "Texas-size crave fuel." In addition, in our Very first Drive testimonial, we noted the deceitful nature of the inside, which "appeared like a strong hunk of aluminum removed an Audi and really feeling 3-cent plastic."
