The 2014 Toyota Tundra is a full-size pickup truck, designed, engineered, and built in the United States. It competes against the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Ford F-150, GMC Sierra 1500, Nissan Titan, and Ram 1500.

Models and Features
Toyota sells the 2014 Tundra in Regular Cab, Double Cab, and CrewMax body styles, with a choice between 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive (2WD and 4WD). Regular and Double Cab models offer a standard pickup bed or a long bed, while the CrewMax is equipped with a short bed.

Trim levels, called "grades" by Toyota, include the SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, and 1794 Edition, the latter named for the Texas ranch upon which the Tundra's factory was built, near San Antonio. The Tundra SR is offered in Regular and Double Cab body styles. The SR5 and Limited trim levels come in Double Cab and CrewMax body styles. Platinum and 1794 Edition models are only available in CrewMax format.

Highlights from the Tundra SR's standard equipment list include heated exterior mirrors, a wiper de-icer system, easy lower-and-lift tailgate, and 18-inch steel wheels. Air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, remote keyless entry, cloth seats, carpeting, cruise control, and a tilt steering wheel are also standard, as well as an Entune 6.1-inch touch-screen audio system with Bluetooth connectivity and music streaming, a USB 2.0 port, auxiliary audio input jack, voice-recognition technology, and a reversing camera. Trailer sway control and Smart Stop technology are also included, along with 2 years or 25,000 miles of free scheduled maintenance.

Tundras with SR5 trim get fog lights, chrome bumper trim, variable intermittent wipers, expanded instrumentation, rear sliding glass window, and an anti-theft system with an engine immobilizer. The Tundra SR5 also has an upgraded version of Entune with a larger touch screen, HD Radio, HD Traffic, HD Weather, satellite radio, and iTunes tagging capability.

The Tundra Limited adds a unique grille design, deck-rail system with adjustable tie-down cleats, and 20-inch aluminum wheels. Inside, this more upscale truck includes leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, Entune App Suite technology, a navigation system, 10-way power driver's seat, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, auto-dimming rearview mirror, universal garage door opener, and a power-sliding rear window.

The Platinum version is equipped with LED running lights, body-color exterior trim, power-folding side mirrors with auto-dimming glass, power sunroof, premium audio system, and unique 20-inch wheels. This version of the truck also gets premium perforated leather, ventilated front seats, a power front passenger's seat, front and rear park-assist sensors, and a glass breakage sensor for the anti-theft alarm.

The Tundra 1794 Edition is equipped like the Platinum, but with unique exterior trim, wood on the steering wheel, and an exclusive Saddle Brown leather interior.

Options and Packages
A Work Truck package is offered for the Tundra SR, adding vinyl flooring and seat coverings. An SR5 Upgrade package includes bucket seats, a power driver's seat, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and a floor console with a relocated gearshift lever. The Limited Premium package installs a glass breakage sensor, front and rear park-assist sensors, improved cabin illumination, and more.

Any 2014 Tundra can be optioned with a tow package that adds a frame-mounted, one-piece receiver installed prior to the cargo bed, a tow/haul transmission mode, unique rear springs, engine and transmission oil coolers, heavy-duty battery and alternator, electrical system upgrades, and extending side mirrors on versions equipped with the 5.7-liter V-8.

Toyota also offers a Toyota Racing Development Off-Road package with special TRD 18-inch wheels, an off-roading suspension, skid plate, front tow hooks, and more. Additionally, the SR5 can be optioned with aluminum wheels, while the Limited, Platinum, and 1794 Edition can be fitted with a blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert.

Under the Hood
A 270-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 engine is standard for the Tundra Regular and Double Cab models. A 310-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 is standard for the Double Cab 4WD and the CrewMax models. A 381-horsepower, 5.7-liter V-8 is standard for the CrewMax 4WD models and all Limited, Platinum, and 1794 Edition versions of the truck.

Equipped with the 5.7-liter V-8, which makes 401 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,600 rpm, the Tundra tows up to a maximum of 10,400 lbs. by SAE J2807 standards. Toyota is the only truck maker to adopt this official rating standard, which went into effect several years ago.

Fuel Economy
The 2014 Toyota Tundra gets between 13 mpg in the city with the 5.7-liter V-8 engine and 20 mpg on the highway with the 4.0-liter V-6 engine. In combined driving, fuel-economy ratings range from 15 mpg for the big V-8 to 17 mpg for the small V-6.

Safety Ratings and Technology
Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) had crash-tested the 2014 Tundra as this overview was written. The new Tundra comes standard with 8 air bags, Smart Stop braking that is designed to prevent unintended acceleration, and a reversing camera. Front and rear park-assist sensors, a blind-spot monitor, and a rear cross-path detection system are optional.
