Toyota dropped the newest version of the Tundra half-ton on us today at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.

While the sheet metal is all new, under the hood lives the same three powertrains as the previous model. A new 1794 edition has also been introduced, complete with luxurious interior that will fight Ford’s King Ranch and Ram’s Long Horn Edition.

Ride quality has also been improved in the new Tundra, thanks to new shock-absorber valving and modified steering feel.

Watch our first look video below.

    I don't like this kid (i.e. presenter/promoter/reviewer/fat curly headed... hm ... he reminds me of a hobbit/Jonah Hill's younger brother via Super Bad.) Any way... here's what I think about the 2014 Tundra-no-diesel, for what it is worth... It is certainly a shame they did not upgrade the mechanical or powertrain options available for the Tundra. Since they did NOT it is therefore a further shame it will be unable to compete with the sizable diesel market controlled by American automakers. While the "ventilated seats" (alejandro) is a nice fantasy that is hardly a make or break for an American consumer, if you choose your car based solely on "ventilated" seats you should stray away from buying a work truck altogether. Here is my analogy to summarize... Mickey R. may have gotten work done but he still acts just the same... Here is an afterthought... I am going to buy this year's (2013), send it down to John Hennessey's shop in Texas and get it Supercharged to 500+ hp and come back with a better truck than Toyota can offer straight off the line.
