The second-generation Toyota Tundra was unveiled back in 2007, but the first major update has just been unveiled at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show. You shouldn’t expect any big changes though, because all the updates were limited just to the exterior and the interior. For the 2014 model year, Toyota is also adding a new "1794 Edition" - a tribute to the ranch, founded in the year 1794, on which the Tundra plant is located in San Antonio.
The most obvious choices include the addition of a new, taller squared-off grille, a revised front bumper design, squarer fenders and wheel wells, and an all-new bed design. It gets new sheet metal on the sides, a revised tailgate and an integrated spoiler in the deck. On the interior, updates are limited to new seats and a new-look instrument panel.
Everything else remains pretty much unchanged, meaning customers will still have to choose between three different engines.
What we would have really like would have seen are some improvements in the towing department, but maybe it will work on that later on.
Update 8/9/2013: Toyota has announced the full pricing details of the 2014 Tundra and it starts at $25,920. Plus it revealed more details on the standard features and towing capacity.
