2014 Toyota Tundra Sr5
The Tundra is Toyota's full-size truck, slotting over the Tacoma. It is readily available with 3 engine selections, rear- or 4x4, 3 cab setups, as well as with a typical or lengthy bed.
The Tundra is a tiny gamer in the full-size truck segment because of its aging powertrains and absence of improvement as compared to competitors from General Motors, Ford, and also 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 and also 327 lb-ft, as well as a 5.7-liter V-8 creating 381 hp and also 401 lb-ft combined to a 5- or six-speed automatic carry over from the pre-refresh Tundra. Toyota improved the truck by improving the ride quality, retuning the suspension for better stability, and also reducing road sound to boost convenience on-road. Off the pavement, the vehicle remains comfortable, filtering out harsh surface areas. Regarding fuel economy, the EPA rates the rear-drive Toyota Tundra 16/20 mpg city/highway for V-6 designs, 15/19 mpg with the 4.6-liter V-8, and 13/18 with the 5.7-liter V-8. 4x4 is just available on the V-8 designs and also they are ranked at 14/18 mpg for the 4.6-liter while the 5.7-liter accomplishes 13/17 mpg.
While Toyota boosted the 2014 Tundra's inside, it hangs back competitors because of unequal use soft and also hard plastics. Wind sound remains a problem despite efforts to make the cabin extra exceptional than previously. Boosted seats make the cabin a better place to hang out in while the sizable back seats have enough space for full-sized grownups. The enhancement of a brand-new infomercial system and common Entune Premium Sound improves the 2014 Tundra.
Depending upon the version, the Toyota Tundra has a three- and also four-star overall safety ranking from the NHTSA (from a feasible five stars) while IIHS has actually given it a great ranking throughout four categories (excellent is the greatest possible rating) other than the tiny overlap front classification, where it has not been examined.
What We Assume
The Tundra's carryover powertrains hold it when compared to full-size vehicles from GM, Ford, as well as Ram, which are furnished with more advanced and effective engines and also transmissions. In a Very first Examination evaluation of a 2014 Tundra 1794 CrewMax Edition, we stated that the brand-new version remains to lag behind its rivals in gas economic climate, presenting a "Texas-size crave petroleum." Furthermore, in our Very first Drive testimonial, we kept in mind the deceitful nature of the inside, which "resembled a solid chunk of light weight aluminum removed an Audi as well as really feeling 3-cent plastic."
