Recap

The Tundra is Toyota's full-size vehicle, slotting above the Tacoma. It is readily available with three engine selections, back- or 4x4, three taxicab arrangements, and with a standard or long bed.

Automobile Overview

The Tundra is a tiny gamer in the full-size truck segment as a result of its aging powertrains and also lack of improvement as compared to rivals from General Motors, Ford, as well as Ram. A 4.0-liter V-6 generating 270 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque, a 4.6-liter V-8 making 310 hp as well as 327 lb-ft, and also a 5.7-liter V-8 producing 381 hp and also 401 lb-ft combined to a 5- or six-speed automatic carry over from the pre-refresh Tundra. Toyota fine-tuned the vehicle by improving the trip high quality, retuning the suspension for far better security, and decreasing roadway sound to enhance comfort on-road. Off the pavement, the vehicle continues to be comfortable, removing rough surface areas. Concerning fuel economy, 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. Four-wheel drive is just offered 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 accomplishes 13/17 mpg.

While Toyota improved the 2014 Tundra's interior, it lags behind rivals because of irregular use soft and hard plastics. Wind sound stays an issue in spite of initiatives making the cabin a lot more exceptional compared to before. Boosted seats make the cabin a better place to spend time in while the large rear seats have sufficient space for full-sized grownups. The enhancement of a new infotainment system and also typical Entune Costs Sound updates the 2014 Tundra.

Depending on the model, the Toyota Tundra has a 3- and also four-star overall safety ranking from the NHTSA (from a possible 5 star) while IIHS has actually provided it a good score across four classifications (great is the greatest possible score) except the small overlap front category, where it has not been evaluated.

What We Think

The Tundra's carryover powertrains hold it back when compared to full-size trucks from GM, Ford, and Ram, which are outfitted with advanced and also efficient engines and transmissions. In a First Examination testimonial of a 2014 Tundra 1794 CrewMax Version, we said that the brand-new design continuouslies hang back its competitors in gas economy, displaying a "Texas-size thirst for petroleum." Furthermore, in our First Drive testimonial, we kept in mind the deceptive nature of the inside, which "looked like a solid chunk of aluminum taken off an Audi and also really feeling 3-cent plastic."
