The 2014 Tundra has ample room for people and cargo, but its interior leaves much to be desired in quality and materials.

Expert Quotes:

Inside, the Tundra interior is revamped with a new dash design that brings audio and climate controls more than 2 inches closer to front occupants.
Edmunds

Nice? Yup. But it’s still a far cry from the lavish details in trucks like the Ford F-150 King Ranch, Chevrolet Silverado High Country, or Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn
Road & Track

The cabin materials feel more substantial and the ergonomics have been simplified.
Autoblog

Inside is where the real improvements have been made, especially on the upper-level models like the Platinum and 1794
Car and Driver


The Tundra is a very large truck. In fact, it's as wide as the law allows for a light-duty truck, and it comes in three cab lengths: Regular, Double Cab, and CrewMax.

The Regular Cab version is best-suited to work truck use, with seating for three at most, with the bench seat, otherwise limited to two bucket seats. There's not much in-cabin storage space, but there's always the pickup bed behind you.

The Double Cab model adds rear-hinged doors and a set of flip-up rear seats. There's not a lot of space in the second row, but kids will fit just fine. The extra space doubles as a convenient weather/theft resistant cargo area when not being used for passengers.

The CrewMax is where the Tundra really comes into its own, with a large second row and four full-sized doors. Seating for five is realistic, with ample leg room for everyone. The rear seats even slide and recline. For those who need to transport three or more people on a regular basis, this is the most practical Tundra.

A center console storage area is large enough to hold file folders or even a laptop, the seats are all comfortable and roomy, and general quietness and refinement in passenger experience are great. Where the Tundra falls a bit short is the quality of materials. Though improved for 2014, they're still a full step behind the Ford F-150, Ram 1500, and Chevy Silverado.

Conclusion

The 2014 Tundra has ample room for people and cargo, but its interior leaves much to be desired in quality and materials.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
