Our test vehicle was a 2014 Toyota Tundra Limited CrewMax with the 5.7L engine. The Limited package offers front and rear parking sonar, an illuminated entry system, blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, running boards and ventilated seats. The 5.7L engine tows over 10,000 lbs. with 15 mpg combined.
There are 3 cab configurations and 4 trim levels, including SR5, Limited, Platinum and the 1794 Edition. The 1794 Edition, named after the founding year of Toyota’s San Antonio ranch, offers a lot of chrome, premium brown perforated leather, 20 inch alloy wheels and badging, and Michelin exclusive off-road tires. The result is the ultimate full-sized luxury truck.
Standard on the Tundra are rear backup cameras, which are a big help when hitching a trailer, Bluetooth, tow package, Entune Premium Audio with Navigation and App Suite, heated front seats and power tilt and slide moonroofs with sunshade.
Inside, the Tundra boasts a soft touch interior, more interior space, a new instrument cluster, a center stack 2.6 inch closer to the driver, 8 airbags, blind spot monitoring (visual), and rear cross traffic alerts. The new exterior presents a bolder and more chiseled look, including new taillights, modular bumper and tailgate.
This truck is built exclusively in the USA, with more USA parts than any other truck.
