2014 Toyota Tundra First Drive: Video Page 2

July 29, 2013

Safety & Bottom Line

One aspect of the 2014 Tundra we fortunately didn't have an opportunity to test is its safety. With a proven track record of topping the pickup lists in crash-testing (the 2013 Tundra was an IIHS Top Safety Pick), as well as a full assortment of active and passive safety aids, the Tundra is just about the safest truck on the market. A backup camera further enhances safety, while also making trailer hookup a cinch, even if you're all by yourself.

All in all, the revised and freshened 2014 Toyota Tundra looks and feels like a brand-new truck--but it drives a lot like it always has, sporting the same engines and transmissions that have served it since its entry into the true full-size pickup market in 2006.

Are the updates for the 2014 Tundra enough to make it a standout? No. But it is a very solid, capable truck, with plenty to recommend it--just don't expect to convert your Blue Oval and Bowtie friends.

Toyota provided airfare, food, and lodging to enable us to bring you this first drive report.
