Toyota’s full-size Tundra rolls into 2014 with a brand new look and a host of changes as a part of a mid-cycle refresh. Chiseled lines and a raised hood increase its presence. Much can be said about the tail, which features a new tailgate and a restyled bumper. Also included are new wheel and grille designs. Inside, Toyota has updated the Tundra with a new dashboard design that includes standard display audio systems on all trims, not to mention Bluetooth and a reverse camera. Mild tweaks to the suspension aim to improve comfort.

Toyota has also upped the ante on the Tundra’s luxury quotient. Two new trims are available, both aimed directly at deep-pocketed buyers. The Platinum offers such luxuries as a power tilt and telescoping steering column, wood-rim steering wheel, and heated and ventilated front seats with under-thigh support. An homage to the ranch where the Tundra’s San Antonio factory was built, the 1794 Edition package offers up saddle-coloured leather with suede inserts, available Sunset Bronze paint, and plenty of chrome exterior trim.

The Tundra is available in Regular Cab, Double Cab, or CrewMax configuration. Bed lengths are standard (6-foot-7), long (8-foot-1) and short (5-foot-6).
