What We Think
The Tundra's carryover powertrains hold it back when compared with full-size trucks from GM, Ford, as well as Ram, which are equipped 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 new design remains to drag its rivals in gas economic climate, presenting a "Texas-size thirst for petroleum." In addition, in our Initial Drive review, we kept in mind the deceptive nature of the interior, which "looked like a solid piece of aluminum removed an Audi and also feeling 3-cent plastic."
