The all new redesigned 2014 Toyota Tunda was revealed today at the Chicago Auto Show. I wasn't to impressed. I had a Toyota Tundra before my F150 and I thought it was a good truck, but the new one Tundra doesn't seem that much difference.
Toyota is calling this the most significant refresh since the Tundra's launch as a 2007 model. The styling also plays to the rough-and-tough demeanor the company conveys with the Texas-built truck.The cabin is reworked with a new seat design and instrument panel. It also will offer a blind-spot monitor, standard backup camera and Bluetooth.
The engine selection is carried over from the current Tundra: a 4.0-liter V6 rated at 270 hp, a 4.6-liter V8 making 310 hp and a 5.7-liter V8 pushing out 381 hp. The V8s are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, while the V6 gets a five-speed auto. The highest rated towing package can pull 10,400 pounds.
The Tundra comes in five trims: SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum and a new 1794 edition. The ranch where the Tundra factory in San Antonio, Texas, is located was founded in 1794.
