Though it bears the Toyota name, the new Tundra is special because it was completely designed, engineered, and manufactured here in the United States, meaning that its a pick-up built specifically to meet Americans' needs.
For the 2014 redesign, several key changes were made. This included raising the hood by 1.5 inches to create a more assertive appearance, strong sculpted lines down the side of the truck, and a redesigned cab with more driver oriented dashboard and center console. Each available Tundra model will also feature its own distinctive grille, making each unique in its own way.
As for technology features, engineers focused on what drivers want from a good pick-up. Trailer brake controllers come with the towing package, and the four and seven pin connectors have been relocated from below the bumper to the space next to the license plate. This gives drivers easier access as well as reduces the risk of the connector getting damaged.
Other features available for the 2014 Tundra will include:
• Bluetooth connectivity for select cell phones
• A display audio system with an integrated back-up camera, as well as optional navigation technology
• Fog lights
• Satellite radio
• Luxury options like heated leather seats, wood trim, and chrome accents
The redesign is a part of a strong push by Toyota to redefine their image. 19 new models under the Toyota brand have been released within the last 12 months. With stunning looking designs debuting across their model line, Toyota's are quickly becoming some of the best looking vehicles on the market.
