What We Think

In a 2014 First Drive evaluation, we claimed that while the inside and dash are well style, the material high quality of the plastics utilized is a disappointment due to the low-grade materials utilized. Flight and handling, on the other hand, are safe on- and off-road while the seats offer plenty of support. We additionally said in a 2014 First Test of 1794 Version version that the cabin is noisier than its rivals while the exterior design isn't really as fresh. Additionally, the 5.7-liter V-8 isn't as quick as several of its rivals that make use of advanced powertrains. Interior room, on the other hand, is generous particularly the huge back seats. For those who desire optimum off-road efficiency, we stated in a 2015 First Drive review that the Tundra TRD Pro really feels far better the much faster it can go. Additionally, it does not obtain disturbed easily as well as includes excellent guiding reaction and also a well-tuned suspension than can deal with high-speed off-roading.
