2014 Toyota Tundra Crew Max


Recap

The Tundra is Toyota's full-size truck, slotting over the Tacoma. It is offered with 3 engine choices, back- or four-wheel drive, 3 taxicab setups, as well as with a common or long bed.

Vehicle Introduction

The Tundra is a little gamer in the full-size vehicle segment due to its aging powertrains as well as absence of improvement as compared to competitors from General Motors, Ford, and Ram. A 4.0-liter V-6 creating 270 hp as well as 278 lb-ft of torque, a 4.6-liter V-8 making 310 hp and 327 lb-ft, and also a 5.7-liter V-8 generating 381 hp and 401 lb-ft paired to a five- or six-speed automated rollover from the pre-refresh Tundra. Toyota fine-tuned the truck by improving the ride quality, retuning the suspension for better security, and also decreasing roadway sound to improve convenience on-road. Off the sidewalk, the vehicle stays comfy, filtering out rough surfaces. Relating to gas economic situation, the EPA rates the rear-drive Toyota Tundra 16/20 mpg city/highway for V-6 models, 15/19 mpg with the 4.6-liter V-8, and also 13/18 with the 5.7-liter V-8. 4x4 is just offered on the V-8 versions as well as they are ranked at 14/18 mpg for the 4.6-liter while the 5.7-liter achieves 13/17 mpg.

While Toyota boosted the 2014 Tundra's inside, it lags behind competitors because of unequal use soft and also tough plastics. Wind sound stays a problem regardless of efforts to make the cabin much more superior than in the past. Enhanced seats make the cabin a better place to hang around in while the roomy back seats have adequate space for full-sized adults. The enhancement of a new infomercial system as well as standard Entune Premium Sound improves the 2014 Tundra.

Depending on the model, the Toyota Tundra has a 3- and four-star general safety and security ranking from the NHTSA (from a feasible five stars) while IIHS has provided it a good score across four classifications (excellent is the highest feasible rating) other than the tiny overlap front classification, where it has actually not been checked.

What We Think

The Tundra's carryover powertrains hold it when compared to full-size vehicles from GM, Ford, as well as Ram, which are equipped with advanced as well as efficient engines and transmissions. In a First Test evaluation of a 2014 Tundra 1794 CrewMax Edition, we said that the brand-new design remains to hang back its rivals in gas economy, presenting a "Texas-size crave gas." In addition, in our Initial Drive review, we noted the deceptive nature of the inside, which "looked like a solid chunk of aluminum taken off an Audi as well as feeling 3-cent plastic."
