2014 Toyota Tundra Revealed



Quote:
The current-generation Toyota Tundra debuted during the Chicago Auto Show in 2007 and today, Toyota brought its new 2014 Tundra to the same event.

A new chiseled look brings the formerly curvaceous Tundra into the boxy realm of the current American-designed pickups. While the profile of the truck remains similar to the current Tundra, the hood, grille, front bumper and wheel arches of the truck have all been squared off for a bold look.

While the folks at Toyota’s Calty design studio were providing new style to give the truck a fresh feel, it seems like the engine development team was sipping cocktails. Disappointingly, the engines are unchanged.

Offered as the standard motor on Tundra Regular and Double Cab models is a four-liter V6 good for 270 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque.

In the middle of the range is a 4.6-liter DOHC i-Force V8 that offers 310 hp and 327 lb-ft of torque, while the top-tier engine is still the 5.7-liter i-Force V8 that makes 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. A five-speed automatic transmission will link up to the V6, while a six-speed will be on duty with both eight-cylinder powerplants. In 4×2 regular car trim, Tundra’s top tow capacity is 10,400 lbs.

For improved ride quality, the shock-absorber valving has been re-tuned, hoping to avoid some of the rear-end chattering that was common in the previous Tundra. Steering feel is adjusted for a little less feedback, which Toyota says will make it better to drive on long trips.

Inside, a complete overhaul brings the Tundra from the land of black, boring plastic into the new-age of truck interiors. Toyota kept the large physical knobs for easy operation, while the rest of the interior was ditched for the new design, save some of the silver and black contrasting dash plastics.

Interior focus was placed on bringing the Tundra a more luxurious feel, along with providing clear differentiation between trim lines.

Ergonomics and comfort received some attention across all the trim levels, as audio and HVAC controls that move closer to the driver. Finally, the front seats are better ventilated and have more travel.

Trim levels start with the SR, move up to SR5, then Limited, and finally two premium trims, the “Platinum” and the all-new “1794” Edition.

The new 1794 trim level brings the Tundra a new level of luxury that will put it in line to compete with Ford’s King Ranch and Ram’s Longhorn edition trucks. Premium saddle brown leather wraps the seats, while ultra-suede contrasts around the interior.

Toyota is offering a few segment firsts in the new Tundra: standard bluetooth, standard backup camera, standard 3.5-inch display screen between the gauges, and blind spot monitor with rear-cross traffic alert, the latter of which will be offered only on Platinum and 1794 edition trucks.

The new Japanese half-ton will hit dealerships in September, 2013

good thing is the 2014 brochures are already written, they just need new pictures. well, not all new, they can keep the frame/drivetrain pictures.

Looks like a ford and a dodge had a kid, wish they had more engine and drivetrain improvements over front end cosmetics. the interior is sharp though

I Like the Dash but other than that my 2012 is about the same.

I just don't understand why they didn't go with direct injection, I thought surely that would happen for better CAFE standings.

Apparently Toyota does not monitor Tundra Talk

diesel
direct injection
CM with longer bed
etc.
etc.
etc.

Interior looks sharp though.

Trucks that have tonneau covers with tailgates that have built in spoilers look pretty stupid. Campershell on that thing will look stupid too. Prolly look cool lifted

How convenient. They are releasing it a month after I pay for a wedding.

Thumbs down Needs some time to grow on me...

It looks like they took the Tundra we all love...made it square like an F-150, fender flares like silverado, and 100% Ram tailgate...the grill to me is horrific. They just took all the features of the other top trucks and incorporated them into this..#FAIL.

The #1 reason why I dont like the GM trucks, the squarish fenders. I like round, which is why Ford would be my 2nd pick, if I had to choose another truck.

Maybe they are gambling that the Ford/Dodge/GM guys will see things on the new Tundra, that they like on their own trucks, and they will go off and buy a real 5.7 I dunno...that's a helluva gamble. We'll see.

Honestly, I don't think Toyota will lose many Tundra fanboys because of this half-assed "new" truck. I can't see a Tundra fanatic going out and buying into a Big 3 problem, just because of some weird changes to the Tundra that they don't like. If anything, I think us Gen 2 guys will for sure hang on to our trucks a little longer, and won't be in a rush to go out and buy this new one. Well, you'll still have those folks who "just gotta have the newest thing out", but I'm pretty sure the majority of us will still sit tight with our Gen 2's....and the Gen 2 modding will continue to stay strong

6 years and just cosmetic upgrades? Are they really trying to compete, or just get by?

7 years same engine with very little updates to it is a bit of a joke. Revised body looks good but not updating the chassis or engine is gonna hurt them. I don't see this gaining then any more sales. Not impressed. We needed a higher up motor as well as something more economical to compare to the ecoboost.
