What We Think
The Tundra's carryover powertrains hold it when compared with full-size trucks from GM, Ford, as well as Ram, which are outfitted with more advanced as well as effective engines and also transmissions. In a Very first Test evaluation of a 2014 Tundra 1794 CrewMax Edition, we said that the new model remains to hang back its competitors in gas economy, presenting a "Texas-size crave petrol." Additionally, in our Initial Drive testimonial, we noted the misleading nature of the inside, which "resembled a strong hunk of aluminum removed an Audi as well as feeling 3-cent plastic."
