WES RAYNAL: Somebody in the office that if you want to know how the new Chevrolet Silverado is, drive the new Tundra. I don’t think the is a bad truck per se, but it’s not as good as the Mostly that’s down to refinement details. I’ll get to in a minute.

I like the Toyota’s It looks bolder and tougher. The is huge front and rear and the materials themselves could use an the interior is well assembled and levels are there. One thing drove me mad was the easy-exit driver — I couldn’t for the life of me out how to turn that off. else is intuitive and easy to It’s a pleasant enough to spend time.

The V8 certainly provided all the power I ever need. It’s a smooth engine and nicely the six-speed auto trans. says this beast can tow than 10,000 pounds, and I no reason to doubt it. On the road, one that stood out to me was that the felt a little grabby or but that could have due to the weather and the awful driving In 4WD high this thing had no in the weather, by the way. It just along through whatever I encountered.

So back to the refinement: The Silverado has that little bit more: The (or GMC’s) chassis feels a lot while the Tundra jiggles a and shudders over road more than the Silverado. The cabin has better materials, and a lot quieter out on the freeway than the in terms of wind noise. I said, little details the Silverado beyond the Toyota.

bet there’s probably no automotive with customer loyalty/return levels like the full-size market. Seems to me you’re a guy, a Ram guy. a Ford guy…That’s what you buy, and it wears out, you buy another

I don’t know of many guys, though I’m they’re out there. So far Toyota been able to put a dent in Ford or Dodge no matter how the Toyota is. And it’s not that the is a bad full size truck. arguably the best Tundra It’s just that the GMs are There will be a new F-150 on the next year, which give Toyota even fits, I predict.

The interior of the 2014 Toyota Platinum CrewMax is refined and all around.

SENIOR ONLINE RORY CARROLL: Gosh. I was to make a remark about how generation of Tundra was nearing the end of its run and was poised to be replaced with a that was more in line its modern American competitors. I looked it up, and this is an all-new for Toyota Tundra. It’s a new of Tundra pickup and it costs To be sure, even the newest pickups have plasticky that would seem out of on a sedan of the same cost. they’re pickups. They’re not to be Cadillacs. But the Tundra felt a or two cheaper and less substantial. The we drove is equipped with Platinum package, which to Toyota, makes it “King of the jungle.” There are a couple of leather patches sewn the interior, and they have seriously janky stitching off of them. The interior would been much nicer them.

Wes is right about the ride. not rough, but when drifting snow or even during cornering, the chassis twists and It almost seems like the modern bodywork has been to an antique frame with wheels. Is any of this stuff to pickup buyers? In reality, it isn’t. As Wes mentioned, pickup buyers are notoriously brand-loyal more than that, loyal to the American three While Toyota has seen benefit from their with NASCAR. it hasn’t into anything approaching a in the U.S. truck market. not to say that it won’t eventually, and certainly not meant to discourage from trying. But they need to offer a product is unquestionably better than the competition before they winning hearts. This is a fine truck, but it’s not product. It’s not a bad-looking though.
