What We Assume
In our 2014 Very first Drive testimonial, we kept in mind that although the interior and dashboard are well created from a performance viewpoint, the quality of the indoor plastics was disappointing, specifically compared with rivals. Trip and also handling, on the other hand, are safe on- and also off-road with the seats giving ample support. We additionally noted in a 2014 First Examination of 1794 Edition version that the cabin is noisier than various other trucks in its class, while the exterior design subjectively lagged its more lately revamped competitors. Despite the fact that the 5.7-liter V-8 isn't really underpowered, the vehicle isn't really as fast as some competitors that utilize advanced powertrains. Interior space, on the other hand is generous, specifically the massive rear seats in the CrewMax designs. For those looking for optimum off-road efficiency in a fullsize vehicle, we said in our 2015 Very first Drive evaluation that the specially-tuned off-road suspension aids the Tundra TRD Pro feel far better the faster it goes, with superb steering feedback and suspension tuning that can cope with high-speed off-roading.
A 2007 Tundra lately went over one million miles, and also was purchased by Toyota Motors U.S.A. so the automaker could perform an engineering evaluation to assist guide durability/reliability advancement of future vehicles.
