What We Believe

In our 2014 First Drive testimonial, we noted that although the interior and also dashboard are well made from a functionality point ofview, the high quality of the interior plastics was disappointing, specifically as compared to rivals. Trip and also handling, on the other hand, are safe and secure on- and also off-road with the seats supplying ample support. We also kept in mind in a 2014 First Test of 1794 Version version that the cabin is noisier compared to various other vehicles in its course, while the exterior style subjectively delayed its a lot more lately upgraded rivals. Although the 5.7-liter V-8 isn't underpowered, the vehicle isn't really as quick as some rivals that utilize advanced powertrains. Interior space, on the other hand is generous, especially the big back seats in the CrewMax versions. For those seeking maximum off-road performance in a fullsize vehicle, we said in our 2015 First Drive review that the specially-tuned off-road suspension helps the Tundra TRD Pro feel much better the faster it goes, with excellent steering action and suspension tuning that could deal with high-speed off-roading.
