What We Believe

In our 2014 Very first Drive evaluation, we kept in mind that although the inside and also dashboard are well made from a performance viewpoint, the high quality of the interior plastics was frustrating, especially compared to competitors. Trip and also handling, on the other hand, are secure on- and also off-road with the seats offering ample support. We additionally noted in a 2014 First Test of 1794 Version design that the cabin is noisier compared to various other trucks in its class, while the exterior style subjectively lagged its extra recently upgraded rivals. Although the 5.7-liter V-8 isn't underpowered, the truck isn't really as quick as some competitors that utilize advanced powertrains. Indoor room, on the other hand is generous, particularly the huge back seats in the CrewMax designs. For those looking for optimum off-road performance in a fullsize vehicle, we stated in our 2015 Very first Drive evaluation that the specially-tuned off-road suspension assists the Tundra TRD Pro really feel much better the quicker it goes, with exceptional steering reaction and suspension tuning that can deal with high-speed off-roading.
