The Tundra has been significantly updated for 2014 with a more ergonomic interior and a freshened exterior that includes a higher hood and replaceable bumper panels. The Western-themed 1794 Edition joins the top-line Platinum model. Its name is derived from the founding date of the Texas ranch where the truck's factory now resides.
For 2011, the Tundra's base 4.0-liter V6 receives dual variable valve timing for more power and better fuel economy (horsepower increases from 236 to 270), while trailer sway control is made standard on all models. Toyota has streamlined the Tundra lineup down to the 28 most popular configurations.
For 2010, the Toyota Tundra gets a slight exterior and interior freshening. A new 4.6-liter V8 is available as are some new trim levels, exterior equipment add-ons and two new audio options. New standard features include a driver's side knee airbag and height-adjustable headlamps.
For 2009, the Toyota Tundra adds two new TRD trim packages. The TRD Sport emphasizes and aggressive street appearance, while the Rock Warrior edition is geared more toward off-road adventuring. An E85-compatible 5.7-liter V8 is now available in certain regions.
As Toyota's full-size truck, the 2015 Tundra aims for attention in a segment rife with entrenched players and brand loyalists. Capturing the limelight – and buyers' allegiance – is no easy task, and not just because the segment has long been dominated by GM, Ram and America's best-selling vehicle, the Ford F-150. Where power used to be a pickup's calling card, the Tundra's rivals are now in a race to be the most sophisticated and efficient. Toyota's flagship truck addressed aspects of the former with last year's revamp, but has yet to update its aging powertrains. The Tundra's V8 engine choices are powerful, but neither cracks 20 mpg. What the Tundra does have on its side is strong resale value and a history of reliability.
