The Top 10 Reasons Why You May want to Buy a 2014 Toyota Tundra:

As one of the only foreign brands to be featured in the top 10 of best full size pickup trucks, the 2014 Toyota Tundra ranks number 5. It is a full size pick up truck that is packed to the maximum with extra features, added luxuries and rugged toughness that is very common in full size pickup trucks. [ For the 2015 model see - Toyota Tundra Pros and Cons ]

Reasons to Buy a 2014 Toyota Tundra - The Pros

1) Pricing
This truck comes in at number 5 in the top 10 full size pickup class for good reason. While it does not boast as much as other models have to offer, it does offer excellent pricing. It ranges everywhere from a low $26,000 to a comfortable $43,000.

2) Mass Appeal
Many full size truck companies work harder to create a better truck than others and end up with too many extras that daily drivers will not use. While the Tundra does offer extras in its higher end models, the most common ones are simple, easy to use trucks that will appeal to the masses.

3) Interior Design
The interior of the 2014 Toyota Tundra feels much more like a higher end car than a full size pickup truck. All models above the base model were completely revamped for 2014 and offer inside luxury. The interiors are made of rugged materials, but still manage to stand out in a classic way.

4) Exterior Styling
The outside of the 2014 Toyota Tundra also got a big upgrade for the new year. The hood was raised, the grill protrudes more and it has a more bulked up look than older models. It is made to look as rugged as it is built.

5) Handling
The Tundra was built to excel during both on and off road trips. It does just that in all situations. Its quick acceleration speeds pleasantly contradict its abilities when off roading; and it performs just as well in a big city as it would on a winding back road.

6) Braking
Despite the size of the cab, the 2014 Toyota Tundra performed well above average in all of the brake tests that it was subjected to. While it may not be able to stop on a dime like some smaller model trucks and cars, it is one of the best at coming to a complete stop after a period of long and high acceleration.

7) Rugged Ride
If you are a person that likes their truck to feel like it is a truck ride instead of a smooth, sedan ride some of Toyota's competitors have been making models that are not for you. Instead of focusing on a smooth ride, the creators of the 2014 Toyota Tundra focused on more important facts and the Tundra remains one of the most truck-like rides on the market.

8) Towing
The V8 powered Toyota Tundra did not just pull a space shuttle for a publicity stunt, the makers of this truck wanted to show potential drivers the towing power that is behind this model. The torque is excellent and it is able to tow up to 10,400 pounds.

9) Hauling
Just because the truck is excellent at towing, does not mean it sacrifices anything when it comes to hauling. It is able to haul 2,040 pounds in just a base model version which is around 75% more than any of its competitors.

10) Available Options
Toyota has given drivers options to suit their own specific lifestyle with the 2014 Toyota Tundra. With everything from a 2WD V6 engine that is made for drivers looking for a truck that will simply get the job done to a bulked up, luxury full size truck that features a V8 and 4WD Toyota has given plenty to choose from. All models are available with manual and automatic transmissions.

Reasons You May Not Want to Buy a 2014 Toyota Tundra - The Cons

1) Fuel Economy
As a full size truck, the 2014 Toyota Tundra is not one of the best vehicles on the market for fuel economy. It gets an unimpressive 17 miles per gallon in the city and it does not come in a diesel fuelled model to help ease the amount of fuel that is used.

2) Gimmicky
While the Tundra remains rugged and tough, the looks may come across as cheesy to full size truck buyers. It does not have the long time practice and craftsmanship put into it that more domestic models offer.

3) Seating
Although Toyota provided drivers with the CrewMax cab edition to the 2014 Tundra, there is still not much comfort in the way of seating. It feels cramped and uncomfortable to most passengers and some have even said there is less room than in the Tundra's little brother Tacoma.
