Think you know the Tundra? Think again. This full-size pickup is ready for the 2014 model year with some big changes under its belt. But the biggest change has got to be the Tundra’s all-American engineering.
Toyota may be a Japanese company but there is nothing more America than the 2014 Toyota Tundra. This pickup was engineered at the Toyota Technical Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan; designed by Calty Design Research centers in Newport Beach, California and Ann Arbor; and assembled exclusively at Toyota Motor Manufacturing, in San Antonio, Texas.
What’s more, both of the Tundra’s V6 and V8 engines are manufactured at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Alabama, Inc. in Huntsville, Alabama and transmissions are built at a production facility in North Carolina. Top to bottom, inside out, the 2014 Toyota Tundra is an all-American beauty.
In addition to its made-in-the-USA roots, the 2014 Tundra offers a bounty of other new features. For starters, it is offered in two all new trim levels: the Platinum CrewMax and a special western-themed 1794 Edition CrewMax.
And like most Toyotas, the Tundra screams luxury from its ultra-convenient and sleek center console, to its premium touch-screen interface. And there are some other bells and whistles you won’t see elsewhere, like power thigh support for the driver’s seat, a power vertical-sliding rear window, and an anti-theft system with glass breakage detection.
Is it power you want? Well, you will be pleased to know that the 2014 Tundra offers a 10,400 pound maximum towing capacity when properly equipped and can haul over 2,000 pounds. And with the choice of a V6 and two V8 engines, the Tundra is sure to meet your needs.
