Our Take

From the Cars.com Vehicle Test Team

The Good

  • The new face of Tundra allows for more visual separation between trim levels
  • The new interior layout delivers more information in a cleaner, more distinct package

The Bad

  • Exterior design changes are subtle and do not create enough drama to separate the Tundra from competition
  • At a time when the bigger competitors are bringing big firepower to the battle, the new Tundra has chosen a cautious path

Notable Features of the 2014 Toyota Tundra

  • New exterior design gives the truck a more aggressive look
  • An all-new interior gauge and center stack layout
  • Two new top-level trim packages called Platinum and the 1794 Edition

2014 Toyota Tundra Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

The big players in the half-ton pickup truck segment like Ford, Ram and General Motors have recently brought out significant changes to their half-tons in the form of powertrains, suspensions and specialty option packages. Toyota has decided to take a more conservative approach, giving the 2014 Tundra a freshened exterior look along with a redesigned interior. What's New for 2014
The 2014 Tundra will offer five distinct trim levels, each with a separate interior and exterior look.

The new trim levels will be paired with five different grille designs.

The 2014 Toyota half-ton will also include some new safety and connectivity technology in the form of standard Entune on the two new premium packages, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic warning detection.  
Exterior
The all-new front design of the 2014 Tundra includes many changes. Designers made the hood taller and the grille wider, punctuating each of the different front grilles with a more chiseled and more modern look.

The lower bumper design is now made of three distinct pieces to help with repair costs, but also will give the Tundra "face" a more muscular foundation to sit on. In addition, the fenders and wheel openings have a more squared-off look and character lines have been carved into the body.

At the rear of the full-size pickup, Tundra designers have incorporated a more stylized tailgate that includes an integrated spoiler to help improve fuel economy. Other design changes in th...

Exterior
The all-new front design of the 2014 Tundra includes many changes. Designers made the hood taller and the grille wider, punctuating each of the different front grilles with a more chiseled and more modern look.

The lower bumper design is now made of three distinct pieces to help with repair costs, but also will give the Tundra "face" a more muscular foundation to sit on. In addition, the fenders and wheel openings have a more squared-off look and character lines have been carved into the body.

At the rear of the full-size pickup, Tundra designers have incorporated a more stylized tailgate that includes an integrated spoiler to help improve fuel economy. Other design changes in the rear include a newly placed and much-larger-than-before Tundra logo on the tailgate that looks as if it was formed into the steel rather than stamped.

The new Tundra will offer five new trim packages with unique wheel choices as well. The SR and SR5 grades will ride on 18-inch steel wheels, while the Limited, Platinum and 1794 Edition will include all-new 20-inch alloy wheels specific to each grade.
Interior
The new trim packages for 2014 Tundra will start with the base "work duty" trim called the SR Package; the next level up is the SR5, which will be called the "professional gear" package, offering chrome accents and contrasting fabrics. 

The Limited will be Toyota's "active premium" trim with leather, soft-touch materials and wood trim. Limited grade also adds an eight-way power driver seat, standard chrome door handles and outer mirrors, 20-inch alloy wheels and a deck rail system.
     
The first of the premium packages, called Platinum, will have perforated black leather seats, more stylized chrome accents, and upscale door and instrument panel inserts.

The 1794 Edition will have many of the same quality details as the Platinum but will use saddle brown leather and ultra-suede accents to give it a more western-themed appearance and feel. The Platinum and 1794 Edition come standard with an eight-way power driver's seat with memory and a four-way power passenger's seat, both with heat and ventilation, power moonroof (CrewMax only), parking sonar and display audio with navigation and the Entune connectivity system.
Under the Hood
Although engine and transmission options have not changed for the 2014 models, meaning select Tundras will still offer a choice between the 4.0-liter V-6, 4.6-liter V-8 and 5.7-liter V-8 engines, there have been some shock-valving changes to improve overall ride quality and handling.

Likewise, the steering system has been improved to allow for better control with road variations and imperfections that can move the truck off course slightly. The results are reported to be better straight-line control and less driver fatigue.
Safety
The 2014 Tundras will offer several new safety features including a standard backup camera and Bluetooth on all models, blind spot monitoring and a cross-traffic alert system (the last two will only be offered on Platinum and 1794 Edition models).

All Tundra models will also feature Smart Stop brake override technology. 

Smart Stop is designed to automatically reduce engine power when both brake and accelerator pedals are pressed at the same time under certain conditions.

Tundra will be equipped with eight standard airbags, including front-seat-mounted side airbags, and front and rear roll-sensing side curtain airbags in all models, driver and front outboard passenger airbags with an Advanced Airbag System, and driver and front outboard passenger knee airbags.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
