The redesigned Tundra was once again engineered by Toyota Technical Center in Ann Arbor, Mich., and its new look designed by Calty Design Research centers in Newport Beach, Calif., and Ann Arbor. Tundra continues to be assembled exclusively at Toyota Motor Manufacturing, in San Antonio, Texas.

Tundra continues to offer three proven powertrains.  A 4.0L Dual Overhead Cam (DOHC) V-6 is standard on Tundra Regular and Double Cab models and produces 270 hp and 278 lb.-ft. peak torque. It is paired with a five-speed automatic transmission with uphill/downhill shift logic.
 
The available 4.6L DOHC i-Force V-8 offers 310 hp and 327 lb.-ft. of peak torque, and the 5.7L DOHC i-Force V-8 produces 381 hp and 401 lb.-ft. of peak torque, in both gasoline and “Flex Fuel” variants. Both V-8’s come standard with a 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission.  All Tundra engines feature an aluminum cylinder block and DOHC heads, along with Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) for a broad torque curve and optimized efficiency.

 
“Toyota prides itself on listening to its customers and the development of the 2014 American-born Tundra is a perfect example,” said Bill Fay, group vice president and general manager, Toyota Division.  “Tundra’s new exterior design and all-new interior were inspired by customer feedback requesting a more chiseled exterior and refined interior with improved driver ergonomics, and easy-to-use technology, giving customers more of what they want instead, in addition to what they need.”

The 2014 Tundra will have a grade strategy consisting of the hard-working SR, volume-leading SR5, the well-appointed Limited, and two premium grades: “Platinum” and the all-new “1794 Edition.” The new 1794 Edition is a tribute to the ranch, founded in the year 1794, on which the Tundra plant is located in San Antonio. Tundra is offered in three cab styles, two-door Regular Cab, four-door Double Cab and four-door CrewMax, all available in 4x2 and 4x4.     

The redesigned 2014 Tundra will reach Toyota dealers in September.
