The restyled 2014 Toyota Tundra is about to start rolling off a Texas assembly line, so that means Toyota dealers will be eager to move the 2013 Tundra models off the lot. Translated: truck buyers can get a great deal on the American-designed, American-engineered, and American-built Tundra. While supplies last, of course.
Here’s the best thing about buying the 2013 Tundra. Not only are great deals to be had, but the new 2014 Tundra is little more than a new skin on an old platform and powertrains. Mechanically, the truck pictured here is just like the new 2014 Tundra, except for the new truck’s revised steering and suspension tuning.
While getting a bargain on a new pickup is appealing, no amount of savings is worth settling for an inferior truck. To determine whether a Toyota Tundra is worthy of consideration, I spent a week with one to find out.
