What We Think
In a 2014 First Drive evaluation, we claimed that while the interior and also dashboard are well design, the material top quality of the plastics utilized is a letdown as a result of the low-grade products used. Trip and also handling, on the other hand, are safe and secure on- and off-road while the seats offer lots of support. We likewise stated in a 2014 First Test of 1794 Edition design that the cabin is noisier compared to its competitors while the outside layout isn't really as fresh. In addition, the 5.7-liter V-8 isn't really as quick as some of its competitors that utilize advanced powertrains. Interior area, on the other hand, is generous specifically the massive back seats. For those who desire optimum off-road performance, we claimed in a 2015 First Drive evaluation that the Tundra TRD Pro feels much better the faster it can go. Additionally, it doesn't obtain disrupted easily and features excellent guiding feedback and a well-tuned suspension compared to can handle high-speed off-roading.
The Tundra TRD Pro is just one of 3 TRD Off-road vehicles in the Toyota lineup, the various other 2 being the 4Runner and the Tacoma.
