2014 Toyota Tundra Limited
The Tundra is Toyota's full-size vehicle, slotting over the Tacoma. It is offered with three engine selections, rear- or 4x4, three taxicab arrangements, and also with a typical or long bed.
The Tundra is a little gamer in the full-size truck segment due to its aging powertrains and also absence of improvement compared to rivals from General Motors, Ford, as well as Ram. A 4.0-liter V-6 producing 270 hp and 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 generating 381 hp as well as 401 lb-ft combined to a five- or six-speed automatic rollover from the pre-refresh Tundra. Toyota refined the vehicle by boosting the trip quality, retuning the suspension for better stability, as well as minimizing roadway sound to improve comfort on-road. Off the sidewalk, the vehicle remains comfy, straining rough surface areas. Regarding fuel economic situation, 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 just available on the V-8 models as well as they are ranked at 14/18 mpg for the 4.6-liter while the 5.7-liter attains 13/17 mpg.
While Toyota enhanced the 2014 Tundra's inside, it drags rivals as a result of unequal use of soft as well as hard plastics. Wind sound stays a concern despite initiatives to earn the cabin much more exceptional compared to before. Improved seats make the cabin a better place to spend time in while the large rear seats have enough space for full-sized adults. The enhancement of a new infotainment system and also standard Entune Premium Audio improves the 2014 Tundra.
Relying on the version, the Toyota Tundra has a three- and also four-star total safety ranking from the NHTSA (out of a possible 5 star) while IIHS has actually provided it an excellent score throughout 4 groups (good is the highest feasible score) other than the small overlap front classification, where it has not been checked.
What We Believe
The Tundra's carryover powertrains hold it back when as compared to full-size trucks from GM, Ford, and also Ram, which are furnished with more advanced and also effective engines and transmissions. In a Very first Examination evaluation of a 2014 Tundra 1794 CrewMax Edition, we stated that the brand-new design continues to drag its competitors in fuel economic situation, showing a "Texas-size thirst for fuel." In addition, in our Very first Drive evaluation, we noted the deceitful nature of the interior, which "appeared like a solid chunk of aluminum removed an Audi and feeling 3-cent plastic."
