The Tundra is an obscure model in the Toyota lineup. In the world that is dominated by the "Detroit Three," Toyota continually strives to create a pickup that is worthy of the masses, even if the sales are far from stellar. The current-generation truck is getting quite old — it debuted in 2007 — so Toyota has given it a full visual overhaul inside and out for 2014. TopSpeed went to the first press drive and came away quite impressed, but how would the truck fair in the real world?
I took possession of a top-level trim 1794 Edition Tundra for a week to put it through its paces. The GM twins are all-new this year, the new Ford F-150 comes out next year, and the Ram should be getting refreshed soon. In this world of fast evolving pickups does the new Tundra have what it takes to stay relevant?
I spent more than 800 miles beating on this beast to see if it had what it takes to be a real truck that sees real work.
