1. A solid, confident workhorse
Before we get to the new luxury interior, the mechanicals must first be addressed. Despite the new level of luxury, the performance level hasn’t diminished at all, especially with the 5.7-liter V8 under the hood.
The Tundra, with its 4.30:1 final drive ratio, feels like one of the torquiest V8 trucks on the road and it pulls with authority. Chassis rigidity and steering feel were updated for 2014 to make the truck more livable and the changes help. The Tundra is now a comfortable highway cruiser, with little steering input needed to keep it tracking straight.
Fuel economy is not up to par on the 2014 Tundra compared to the rest of the industry, but the truck’s capability is unquestionable.
