2014 Toyota Tundra First Drive: Introduction
When Toyota introduced the revised second generation Tundra full-size pickup truck at the Chicago Auto Show in 2006, a lot of eyebrows went up. With its brutally muscular styling, brawny V8 engine, broad array of cab configurations, and bevy of bed lengths the 2007 Toyota Tundra signaled to the auto industry Japan was about to get very serious about pickup trucks.
Though the full-size Nissan Titan had preceded the full-size Tundra to market in 2003, Toyota’s status as the industry juggernaut attracted attention in a way the Nissan offering did not. And indeed, in the ensuing years Tundra has handily outsold Titan.
Moving into the third generation of the model, Toyota has refined an already high functioning product to improve its appeal across a number of areas. For 2014, Tundra gets all-new styling, a completely renovated interior treatment, and a host of technological solutions calculated to make the model both more comfortable and more luxurious.
