Toyota revealed the all-new 2014 Toyota Tundra earlier this week at the Chicago Auto Show. This, most-recent, update to Toyota’s half-ton pickup truck represents the largest change inside and out that has been made since the Tundra’s last redesign in 2007. The new design comes as a response to the rapidly changing world of automotive design. Lately, drivers have been demanding very different qualities from their vehicles. Fuel economy, interior space, technology, and quality materials now make up the top of the list of things consumers look for in a new vehicle.
The new 2014 Toyota Tundra features a redesigned hood, grille, wheel arches, and front bumper with more angular and muscular lines. The only part of the body design that has carried over unchanged from previous years is the front windshield. Inside, the changes are almost as drastic. Every control has been tested for ergonomics or re-positioned for more natural use, even with work gloves on. Only a few switches and knobs are still the same, mostly on the climate controls. The interiors have also been set up for more difference between the trim levels. The base model and lower models which will mostly be used for work and utility have a natural, no-nonsense layout with emphasis being placed on the critical controls and information displays. The upper levels get more attention to detail and higher quality materials throughout.
New technology on the redesigned trucks includes standard Bluetooth connectivity, an integrated 3.5-inch audio and info display screen standard, an integrated back-up camera, and lane departure systems available on upper trim levels.
