Toyota has announced pricing for its refreshed 2014 Toyota Tundra full-size pickup truck. Starting at $26,915, including $995 for destination and handling, the two-wheel-drive, 4.0-liter V-6 powered Tundra SR makes 270 horsepower and comes in at nearly $2,000 more than its next most expensive rival from the Big Three. It also represents a $465 increase from the 2013 model.
At the opposite end of the 2014 Toyota Tundra’s lineup, the 2014 Tundra Platinum and 1794 Edition CrewMax 4×4 start at the low, low price of $48,315, which is undercut ever so slightly by a comparable 2014 Ford F-150 King Ranch. Toyota says that the CrewMax Limited 4×4 models are the equivalent of $2,000 lower by way of more standard equipment. All SR5 models equipped with Toyota’s stout 381-horsepower, 5.7-liter V-8 are unchanged at $31,315 in Double Cab configuration.
The 2014 Toyota Tundra carries over with the same 4.0-liter V-6 as the 2013 model in addition to a mid-range 310-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 and the top-level 5.7-liter engine. The V-8 engines get a six-speed automatic, while the V-6 is paired to a five-speed. The 2014 Toyota Tundra comes in SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, and 1794 Edition equipment levels in regular cab, Double Cab, and CrewMax configurations. Toyota hasn’t given all the details for every version yet, but we don’t think it’ll differ too drastically from the 2013 trucks.
Recently we had a chance to drive the 2014 Toyota Tundra, and we weren’t overly impressed. We said that Toyota made great strides with its interior–where it arguably needed the most work anyway–but didn’t do enough with the drivetrain options to keep it on the same level with the domestics. Still, It’ll serve its niche in the full-size pickup truck segment well. The 2014 Toyota Tundra goes on sale later this month.
