What We Think

In a 2014 First Drive review, we said that while the interior and also dashboard are well layout, the material quality of the plastics used is a disappointment due to the low-grade products utilized. Ride as well as handling, on the other hand, are secure on- as well as off-road while the seats supply a lot of support. We also said in a 2014 First Test of 1794 Version design that the cabin is noisier than its rivals while the outside style isn't really as fresh. Furthermore, the 5.7-liter V-8 isn't really as fast as some of its rivals that use more advanced powertrains. Interior space, on the other hand, is generous particularly the significant back seats. For those who want optimum off-road performance, we claimed in a 2015 First Drive evaluation that the Tundra TRD Pro feels better the much faster it could go. In addition, it does not get disturbed conveniently and also features excellent steering response and a well-tuned suspension compared to can handle high-speed off-roading.
