Toyota Tundra Interior
In comparison with the 2013 model, the interior of the refreshed 2014 Toyota Tundra earns praise for its higher-quality materials and better-positioned climate and audio controls. Still, one reviewer dislikes the prevalence of some hard plastics. Reviewers call out the CrewMax model for having especially spacious back-seat accommodations.
- "The 2014 Toyota Tundra's interior materials also look and feel higher-quality than in past years, and the leather appointments in the upper trims are particularly appealing." -- Edmunds
- "The interior upgrades have gone a long way toward making the cockpit look more like that of an F-150. This isn't necessarily bad. The controls are thoughtfully laid out and easy to use. The new surfaces look great, but some of the hard plastics are still a bit disappointing." -- Motor Trend
- "The Tundra's redesigned interior is also a pleasing improvement over last year's model. The cabin materials feel more substantial and the ergonomics have been simplified. The meaty leather-wrapped steering wheel felt great in our hands and we liked the round, swiveling vents that allow better air distribution." -- Autoblog
Regular cab Tundra models seat three, while Double and CrewMax cabs offer seating for up to six. A front split bench seat and cloth upholstery are standard. Vinyl seats are available on the base trim, and front bucket seats, leather upholstery and heated, cooled and power-adjustable front seats are available on upper trims. The Tundra's front seats are praised for being comfortable and supportive, though one reviewer notes that like many trucks, the Tundra’s seats doesn't offer much side bolstering. The Double Cab's rear seats are deemed plenty spacious, and reviewers say that the rear seats in the CrewMax are exceedingly spacious. Further, the Tundra is praised for offering great outward visibility.
- "Even the SR and SR5 interiors are no penalty boxes, and the Limited is pretty nice. The new center console box is huge. Rear-seat room in the Double Cab is more than adequate, and in the CrewMax, downright cavernous. Five six-footers can ride comfortably in that truck all day long." -- Car and Driver
- "The front seats in every trim are broad and comfortable, but as this is a truck, you shouldn't expect much in the way of lateral support. There's a vast amount of legroom and headroom in the backseat of the CrewMax, which shouldn't surprise considering the enormity of this configuration's footprint." -- Edmunds
- "The seats feel more like TV room recliners than sport buckets, but during our driving evaluations, they felt supportive and comfortable. I never felt like they lacked lateral support, but they didn't make entry or exit difficult." -- Motor Trend
- "There's plenty of adult room front and rear in both 4-door models, but it's almost limo-like in the back of the Crewmax. Step-in is a bit high, but that can be said for most pickups. Visibility is quite good in all directions, which cannot." -- Consumer Guide
The 2014 Toyota Tundra comes standard with power windows, a backup camera, a USB port, Bluetooth and Toyota's Entune multimedia system with a 6.1-inch touch screen. Options include the Entune App Suite, which integrates apps like Bing, iHeartRadio and Pandora when paired with a smartphone. Other options include navigation, a JBL premium stereo system, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power moonroof, a retractable rear window and blind spot monitoring.
Reviewers note that the knobs and buttons are large and easy to operate and Entune is located in a way that makes it easy to read. One critic wishes there were more USB ports, however.
- "Regardless of vehicle type, one of the main points of focus in recent years has been infotainment systems, and Tundra is fully up to date in this regard." -- Consumer Guide
- "Although the ability to stream Internet radio and search for points of interest on Bing are nice features, we would have liked to see the automaker add another USB port or two, as even top trims have only a single port (whereas competitors offer multiple charging ports)." -- Edmunds
- "The truck's big knobs remain (easier to use with gloved hands), but the controls and layout are sleeker." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "The gauge cluster is also easier to read, with the new 3.1-inch color TFT display being particularly clear, and the Entune touchscreen is well placed for viewing from either seat and features a standard backup camera." -- Autoblog
Regular and Double Cab Tundras come with either a 6.5- or 8.1-foot bed, while CrewMax models have a 5.5-foot bed. Reviewers say Double Cab and CrewMax models offer plenty of space for locking up items in the cab. One reviewer wishes that Toyota had more innovative bed features like the Ram 1500's RamBox or Ford F-150's tailgate step.
- "Another gripe about the Tundra is that nothing much is happening in the cargo bed. Compared with the Ram's clever cargo management system and bodyside storage compartments or the Ford F-150's bed extender and deployable tailgate step, it's not too advanced." -- Automobile Magazine
- "There are numerous storage compartments in the cabin. With front bucket seats, there's a huge center console bin; with the bench seat, the center cushion flips up to reveal a good-sized storage bin. In back, the seat cushions fold up to make a large, flat-floored cargo area; on the Double Cab, you can get a large storage bin underneath." -- Consumer Guide
- "The folding rear seats in double cabs and CrewMaxes also provide a good amount of protected storage for valuable items you'd rather not leave in the bed." -- Edmunds
- "The cab is just as spacious as other full-size pickups. Toyota even reworked the rear seat to make it more useful for hauling cargo." -- AutoTrader
