The completely redesigned 2014 Toyota Tundra made its public debut recently at the Chicago Auto Show, becoming the first full-size pickup in America to offer high-tech amenities like a standard rearview camera system, standard Bluetooth capabilities, and an available blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert. And note: The next-generation of the award-winning Tundra was engineered in this country, designed in this country and will be built in this country, which is one of the reasons they’re so popular at Acton Toyota Dealers.
“Toyota prides itself on listening to its customers and the development of the 2014 American-born Tundra is a perfect example,” said Bill Fay, group vice president and general manager, Toyota Division. “Tundra’s new exterior design and all-new interior were inspired by customer feedback requesting a more chiseled exterior and refined interior with improved driver ergonomics, and easy-to-use technology, giving customers more of what they want instead, in addition to what they need.”
As always, the Tundra will be offered in a wide range of configurations to further meet customer demand, with rear- and all-wheel drive; Regular Cab, Double Cab and CrewMax body styles; two bed lengths; and four well-differentiated equipment grades. Among them: A new, ultra-premium “1794 Edition” that pays homage to the San Antonio ranch—established in 1794—on which the Tundra plant is located.
According to Lexington Toyota, engineers didn’t skimp when it comes to the new Tundra’s powertrains. The rugged truck offers three, starting with a 4.0-liter V6 that makes 270 hp and 278 lb.-ft. of torque, moving up to a 4.6-liter V8 that develops 310 hp/327 lb.-ft. of torque, and culminating in a 5.7-liter i-Force V8 capable of pouring out 381 horses and more than 400 lb.-ft. of twisting power.
