Toyota Unveils 2014 Redesigned Tundra Full-Size Pickup Truck at 2013 Chicago Auto Show
- New Chiseled Exterior Styling
- All-New Interior Design Combines Refinement and Improved Function
- Segment-Leading Standard Backup Camera and Bluetooth® on All Grades
- Available Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Engineered, Designed and Assembled in the United States
CHICAGO, Feb. 7, 2013 – Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., unveiled the redesigned 2014 Tundra full-size pickup truck at a press conference at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.
Tundra has been a quality leader with Toyota’s DNA of quality, dependability and reliability. The industry has recognized Tundra with a myriad of awards over the last 12 years, including winning the J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study for seven years running in the Full-Size Pick Up segment. Not resting on its laurels, the 2014 Tundra will be redesigned, inside and out, representing the first major change since the launch of the current generation for the 2007 model year.
The redesigned Tundra continues to be a truck with true American roots that 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. Finally, Tundra continues to be assembled exclusively at Toyota Motor Manufacturing, in San Antonio, Texas.
“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 4×2 and 4×4.
Significantly New, Unique Exterior Designs; Distinct Look for Each Grade
Inside and out, each grade embodies a specific theme through distinct designs that go beyond just badging.
The Calty design team set out to create a bold and powerful exterior to embody Tundra’s performance capability. The all-new front design integrates the hood and grille for a chiseled and modern industrial image. Designers increased the size of the front fascia and tightened up the surfaces and character lines to punctuate Tundra’s pulling power and wide stance. The chrome grille has a taller, bolder look visually connecting the upper intake to the lower bumper. The front lower bumpers are now a three-piece design, allowing for grade differentiation and less expensive replacement parts. In addition, the fenders and wheel wells have been squared-off for a wide and sturdy stance.
An all-new bed design helps carry the chiseled character lines all the way down the profile, leading to a rugged new bed and tail gate, with an integrated spoiler and “TUNDRA” stamped into the sheet metal, creating a one-piece forged look. The integrated spoiler in the deck helps with fuel efficiency, while the tail lamps express a tool-like quality to match the appearance of the body. Like the front bumper, the rear bumper changes from one piece to three, for lower replacement costs.
An All-new Spacious Interior; Each Grade With a Unique Identity
Calty’s design team worked closely with the product planners and Tundra engineers to develop an all-new bold interior focusing on styling differentiation between grades and improving the availability of features most important to truck buyers. The all-new interior variations are thematic and cater to a specific customer with a specific budget. Ergonomic improvements include easier driver access to controls as the reach to the audio and HVAC controls was reduced by 2.6 inches. Large knobs have been retained so they can be operated with or without work gloves. Overall passenger comfort was improved with an all-new front and rear (CrewMax) seat design and improved front seat ventilation. In addition, front seats have additional travel, and CrewMax rear seats can now be folded up for additional cargo carrying capability while maintaining a comfortable seating back angle.
The interior has a rugged, interlocked construction with an all-new instrument panel. The meters feature 3-D metallic rings and individual gauges grouped in a clear, easy-to-see design with a center-mounted multi-information display screen. The console design holds multiple storage areas for personal items and electronics plus additional padded surfaces and accent stitching in premium grades. Both Double Cab and CrewMax will be available with a bench or bucket seats for the front row.
The interior of the SR5 features a “professional gear” theme, with unique driver and passenger zones, metallic accents and bold contrasting fabric. Most importantly, the all-new design uses premium surface treatments to enhance interior quality and durability.
The Limited grade has an “active premium” image with leather seating surfaces matching soft-touch stitched door and console surfaces, and wood-style interior trims. The Limited will be available with Black, Sand Beige and Graphite leather-trimmed interiors and will have standard auto HVAC controls.
The Platinum grade has been completely redesigned for the next generation of personal use truckers. It features perforated black leather-trimmed seats with double-stitched diamond plate leather, door and instrument panel inserts, and chrome seat and console accent badging for an upscale yet urban feel. In addition, Platinum uses premium leather never before used on a Toyota truck and comes with many standard amenities, including a 12-speaker JBL audio system with Entune™, heated and ventilated front seats, navigation and Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
The 1794 Edition reflects a western lifestyle theme and includes exclusive premium saddle brown leather seating with embossed leather and ultra-suede accents. Matching soft-touch materials also accents the shift console, the front and rear door trim, and the instrument panel. Like the Platinum, the 1794 Edition includes an array of standard features that includes heated and ventilated front seats, JBL audio and Entune, navigation and Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
Three Engine Options Remain Among Segment’s Most Capable
Several enhancements have been implemented on the 2014 Tundra to improve performance. Shock-absorber valving has been re-tuned to improve Tundra ride quality over harsh surfaces.
Steering feel and straight line stability has been improved due to steering system improvements. These improvements reduce the inputs from road variations and imperfections, resulting in improved straight line stability and less driver fatigue.
Patented aerodynamic stabilizer fins are added to the outside surface of the rear tail lamp lens, and the outside mirror bases. These patented “Aero-Fins” reduce the air turbulence along the sides of the vehicle resulting in improved straight-line stability during normal driving conditions and while towing.
Interior cabin noise is reduced from an improved design of engine compartment NVH treatments and innovative engineering to reduce sound transmission from the engine compartment to the vehicle cabin.
Tundra continues to offer three proven powertrains. A 4.0-liter Dual Overhead Cam (DOHC) V6 is standard on Tundra Regular and Double Cab models and produces 270 horsepower and 278 lb.-ft. peak torque. It is paired with a five-speed automatic transmission with uphill/downhill shift logic.
The available 4.6-liter DOHC i-Force V8 offers 310 horsepower and 327 lb.-ft. of peak torque, and the 5.7-liter DOHC i-Force V8 produces 381 horsepower and 401 lb.-ft. of peak torque, in both gasoline and “Flex Fuel” variants. Both V8’s come standard with a six-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.
The SR and SR5 grades will ride on 18-inch styled steel wheels, while the Limited, Platinum and 1794 Edition will ride on all-new 20-inch alloy wheels specific to each grade.
Tundra remains the only full-size pickup in the segment to adhere to the SAE J2807 towing standard. When equipped with a tow package, Tundra has a maximum tow capacity of 10,400 pounds (4×2 Regular Cab).
All 2014 Tundras Feature a Number of Segment Firsts
Tundras will feature a number of segment firsts, including a new Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, a standard back-up camera (viewed from the audio display screen), and standard Bluetooth. Additional standard features include a 3.5-inch multi-information display in the gauge cluster.
The Limited grade adds eight-way power driver seat, standard chrome door handles and outer mirrors, 20-inch alloy wheels and a deck rail system.
The Platinum and 1794 Edition come standard with a 10-way power driver’s seat with memory and a four-way power passenger’s seat, both with heat and ventilation, power moonroof (CrewMax only), parking sonar, and Display Audio with Navigation, Entune and JBL.
Toyota’s STAR Safety; Segment First Blind Spot Monitor with Cross Traffic Alert
The 2014 Tundra will be the first in its segment to be equipped with a standard backup camera on all grades, and the first truck in its segment to offer a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (Platinum and 1794 Edition).
All Tundra models will also feature the standard Toyota Star Safety System™ that includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), and Smart Stop (SST) brake override technology.
Smart Stop Technology is designed to automatically reduce engine power when both brake and accelerator pedals are pressed at the same time under certain conditions, helping the driver bring the vehicle to a stop.
Tundra will be equipped with eight standard airbags including front seat-mounted side airbags, and front and rear Roll-sensing Side Curtain Airbags (RSCA) in all models, driver and front outboard passenger airbags with an Advanced Airbag System, and the segments only driver and front outboard passenger knee airbags.
Additional safety features include manual headlamp leveling and standard LED Daytime Running Lights (Platinum and 1794 Edition).
The redesigned 2014 Tundra will reach Toyota dealers in September.

2013 Chicago Auto Show Toyota Tundra Reveal – Bill Fay
2013 Chicago Auto Show
Grand Ballroom – McCormick Place
Thurs., Feb. 7, 2013 @ 9 a.m. EST
Bill Fay – Toyota Division Group VP & GM, TMS, U.S.A
Good morning everyone and thanks for helping us kick off the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.
Chicago is Toyota’s “Truck Show”…as we have a long history of major reveals here, many in this ballroom, such as the first-generation Tundra Crew Cab along with our NASCAR Tundra race truck, which will be going for its 100th victory at Daytona next week.
So, it’s only natural that this is where we’d debut the new 2014 Tundra — the third new Toyota introduced in the last 10 months.
The gentleman behind the podium at the 2003 Chicago Auto Show is Dave Illingworth, who was a Senior Executive at the company and headed the Motor Sports among many other things. Dave is now our Toyota Dealer in Warsaw, Indiana and is here with us today. So join me in welcoming Dave back to the Show.
Toyota understands that American truck buyers have different needs, so we offer a choice of a compact
or full-size truck even while most of our competitors have abandoned the compact market.
Tundra and Tacoma sold nearly a quarter million trucks in 2012 — claiming 18 percent of the combined
retail compact and half-ton pick-up truck market, which is about the same as our retail passenger-car share. And all of them are built in North America.
In addition, no full-size truck has more North American parts content than Tundra.
We’re optimistic about the future of the full-size pick-up truck market. The recession hit the segment hard probably harder than any other and there were only 1.1 million sold in 2009.
But in 2012 with the economy growing in many areas, the segment exceeded 1.6 million units and we see it hitting 1.8 million by 2015.
The full-size truck segment has typically been one of the most loyal in the industry with owners continually replacing their old trucks with new ones and in today’s market some are taking the opportunity to change. brands.
We’ve also seen more segment switching as people move from SUVs and cars to the unique capabilities increasing comfort of full-size pickups. With increased personal use, the mix of half-ton Crew Cabs has grown from 48 percent to almost 60 percent over the last five years.
There is also a growing trend towards more premium grades with additional features and distinctive. styling.
So we listened to what the market and customers were telling us when we redesigned the Tundra.
In addition to maintaining the capability, reliability and safety that truck buyer’s demand, the 2014 Tundra also features
- unique exterior designs with a distinct look for each grade
- An all-new spacious interior with each grade having its own identity
- And new technological innovations that customers appreciate everyday
Ladies and gentlemen — the redesigned 2014 Tundra.
Designed, engineered and built in the U.S., the new Tundra has a powerful front image and chiseled overall appearance.
Kevin Hunter and his Calty Design team in California and Michigan gave it an aggressive look to match its capability.
The new exterior design features a muscular front view that signifies its “pulling power” through a wider, taller grille … with forceful headlamps that interlock with the rest of the front fascia.
The hood was raised by 1.6 inches contributing to the bolder appearance.
The new bed design helps carry the sculpted character lines all the way down the side leading to a new gate …with an integrated spoiler and “TUNDRA” embossed directly into the sheet metal creating a rugged high-tech look.
A new unique bumper goes from one to three pieces allowing for grade differentiation and lower customer replacement costs.
Chief Engineer Mike Sweers grew up in a Michigan farming community and has a small, active farm. day.
It’s a place where full-size pickups are a way of life. I guess you could say pickups are in his blood.
On top of that, he was previously a vice president of interiors at TTC Ann Arbor, which made him the natural choice to lead development of the new Tundra.
He and his team really sweated the small stuff when it came to crafting an all-new best-in-segment. interior.
They made the cab more driver-centric moving the center stack 2.6 inches closer for easier access.
And a new gauge, cluster with distinctive styling, is easier to view.
And Mike knows a thing or two about towing, so he added a trailer-brake controller to the towing package and moved the 4 and 7 pin trailer connectors from below the rear bumper up next to the license plate. This makes them not only easier to use but also reduces the potential for damage.
To satisfy the growing number of premium, full-size truck buyers, the redesigned Tundra will offer five distinct grades each with a “unique flavor” that is immediately recognizable — including a different front grille for each rather than just an equipment build up from grade to grade.
The SR grade is our entry-level Tundra designed primarily for the work-use buyer who will value its excellent utility on the job.
Although work-focused. the SR includes convenience features like Display Audio with integrated Backup Camera and Bluetooth as standard features.
The SR5 will continue to be our volume model with a great mix of style and capability.
It’s differentiated from the SR with
- chrome grille surround,
- fog lights,
- satellite radio,
- and optional 18-inch alloy wheels.
The Limited, like the model behind me, will have a character that is active and premium with
- a unique grille insert,
- chrome accents,
- and 20-inch alloy wheels.
Inside heated leather bucket seats with power driver controls, wood grain trim and Display Audio with navigation and Entune add to the Limited’s well-appointed character.
This particular Limited also features the TRD Off-Road Package with
- unique 18-inch wheels,
- dedicated off-road tires,
- and performance springs and shocks.
With the half-ton truck segment growing significantly at the top end, we’ll offer two premium grades
to satisfy varied tastes and desires.
The Platinum grade will have an urban contemporary edge appealing to a new generation of truck buyers with perforated black premium leather seats and double stitching on the seats, doors and instrument panel inserts – along with chrome trim and brushed metallic accents.
We have an amazing black Platinum Edition upstairs in the Toyota display for you to see up close today.
The 1794 Edition over here on your right is a true heartland pick-up…
(REVEAL 1794 EDITION)
with its heritage inspired by the ranch founded in 1794 where the Tundra plant is now located
in San Antonio.
It reflects a western lifestyle with saddle-brown premium leather seating and ultrasuede accents
with bold contrast stitching and an exclusive logo. Both premium models include LED daytime running lights.
Tundra also features a number of segment firsts including a new Blind Spot Monitor
with Rear Cross Traffic Alert on premium models.
It will continue to have the largest front brakes in the class and the segment’s only standard knee airbags …
In addition to a class-leading eight standard airbags, Tundra — like all Toyotas — will feature our exclusive STAR Safety System with Vehicle Stability Control and Smart Stop Technology among others.
Toyota’s DNA of QDR has made Tundra the leader in full-size pickup quality. The industry has honored Tundra with numerous awards over the past 12 years including JD Power’s recognition as the most pendable full-size pickup seven years in a row.
We will continue to offer three engine options where our customers have consistently given us postitive feedback on the efficiency, power and durability of Tundra’s powertrains — which remain the most capable in the half-ton segment towing all sorts of boats and trailers as well as some other interesting craft.
With Tundra, “what you see is what you get.” Tundra meets customers’ expectations from towing to “real world” fuel economy.
According to a leading consumer publication, our 5.7-liter V8 gets the same combined fuel economy in daily driving as some competitors’ smaller-displacement V8 and Turbo V6 engines.
Tundra’s 5.7-liter V8 carries more than 2,000 pounds and tows over 10,000 pounds. Tundra has been compliant with SAE’s new towing standard since 2011 and it’s still the only full-size truck in the industry to date that has adopted this new standard.
Tundra continues to deliver on what full-size truck customers need and now gives them more of what they want as well.
From its inception back in 1999, the Tundra was designed and built for American truck buyers and all Tundra’s are built at our San Antonio plant.
The redesigned Tundra is a continuation of Toyota’s initiative to locally develop more engaging vehicles specifically for the North America market, which began with the all-new Avalon.
Two men whose teams helped make the new Tundra happen are here today.
Please welcome from TTC Ann Arbor Tundra Chief Engineer Mike Sweers.
And from Calty Design Research in Newport Beach, California, and Ann Arbor Calty President Kevin Hunter.
These guys are the heart and soul of the new Tundra and I can’t thank them enough for this fantastic new truck.
While we won’t have pricing until closer to the September launch, I think Tundra will offer the best overall package in the half-ton segment.
Tundra’s dynamic new styling with its long-standing capability, five distinctive grades, unique premium interior features, and Toyota safety reiterates our commitment to our customers and the North American market.
And it’s another example of Toyota inviting people to “Let’s Go Places”… together.
Thank you for spending the morning with us.
I invite you to take a look at these amazing new trucks, but let the photographers come up first to get some additional images of the Limited and 1794 Edition… and don’t forget to go by the Toyota display area to see the outstanding Platinum Edition.
And if you swing by the Scion display, I might see you there. I’m looking forward to checking out the new, modified FR-S, which will be the new race car for the Pro/Celebrity Race at the Toyota Grand Prix in Long Beach this April.
Thanks again and enjoy the rest of the show.
