2014 Toyota Tundra Crewmax


The Tundra is Toyota's full-size vehicle, slotting above the Tacoma. It is offered with three engine choices, back- or 4x4, three taxicab setups, and also with a standard or long bed.

Vehicle Review

The Tundra is a small gamer in the full-size truck sector due to its aging powertrains and absence of improvement as compared to competitors from General Motors, Ford, as well as Ram. A 4.0-liter V-6 producing 270 hp and also 278 lb-ft of torque, a 4.6-liter V-8 making 310 hp and 327 lb-ft, as well as a 5.7-liter V-8 producing 381 hp and 401 lb-ft paired to a five- or six-speed automatic carry over from the pre-refresh Tundra. Toyota fine-tuned the truck by improving the flight quality, retuning the suspension for much better stability, and reducing roadway noise to improve comfort on-road. Off the sidewalk, the vehicle continues to be comfortable, straining rough surface areas. Pertaining to gas economy, the EPA prices the rear-drive Toyota Tundra 16/20 mpg city/highway for V-6 versions, 15/19 mpg with the 4.6-liter V-8, and also 13/18 with the 5.7-liter V-8. 4x4 is only available on the V-8 designs and also they are ranked at 14/18 mpg for the 4.6-liter while the 5.7-liter accomplishes 13/17 mpg.

While Toyota enhanced the 2014 Tundra's interior, it drags rivals because of uneven use soft and also hard plastics. Wind noise continues to be a problem regardless of efforts to earn the cabin a lot more superior than previously. Improved seats make the cabin a better place to hang around in while the sizable rear seats have enough space for full-sized adults. The addition of a new infotainment system and also typical Entune Premium Sound improves the 2014 Tundra.

Relying on the design, the Toyota Tundra has a three- and four-star total safety rating from the NHTSA (from a feasible 5 star) while IIHS has actually offered it a good rating across 4 groups (excellent is the greatest possible score) except the tiny overlap front group, where it has actually not been tested.

What We Assume

The Tundra's carryover powertrains hold it back when compared to full-size trucks from GM, Ford, as well as Ram, which are outfitted with more advanced and also reliable engines and also transmissions. In a Very first Test testimonial of a 2014 Tundra 1794 CrewMax Edition, we claimed that the new design continuouslies lag behind its competitors in fuel economic situation, displaying a "Texas-size thirst for petroleum." In addition, in our First Drive testimonial, we kept in mind the deceitful nature of the inside, which "looked like a strong piece of light weight aluminum taken off an Audi and also really feeling 3-cent plastic."
