What We Think
In our 2014 Initial Drive testimonial, we kept in mind that although the inside as well as dash are well developed from a performance viewpoint, the top quality of the interior plastics was unsatisfactory, especially as compared to competitors. Flight as well as handling, on the other hand, are safe and secure on- and off-road with the seats supplying sufficient assistance. We also noted in a 2014 First Test of 1794 Version version that the cabin is noisier than various other vehicles in its class, while the exterior style subjectively delayed its much more just recently upgraded rivals. Even though the 5.7-liter V-8 isn't really underpowered, the truck isn't really as quick as some rivals that use more advanced powertrains. Interior room, on the other hand is generous, especially the huge back seats in the CrewMax designs. For those seeking maximum off-road efficiency in a fullsize vehicle, we claimed in our 2015 Initial Drive testimonial that the specially-tuned off-road suspension assists the Tundra TRD Pro feel much better the much faster it goes, with exceptional steering action and suspension tuning that can handle high-speed off-roading.
A 2007 Tundra just recently reviewed one million miles, as well as was purchased by Toyota Motors U.S.A. so the automaker could carry out a design evaluation in order to help overview durability/reliability advancement of future trucks.
