Putting Toyota’s Truck to The Frozen Tundra Test

Apr 04, 2014 - 5:04 PM - by AutoGuide.com


AutoGuide.com truck expert Stephen Elmer takes the 2014 Toyota Tundra on an Epic Tough Truck Test

AutoGuide.com resident truck expert Stephen Elmer wasn’t born with 4:10 gears, locking differentials and trailer towing specs on the brain, but he might as well have been.
His father is known as the “Canadian Truck King,” so its no surprise that Steve takes to pickups like white on rice. But the King wasn’t pleased when Toyota invited journalists to test the 2014 Tundra. His criticism wasn’t with the truck, but the planned route that did little to test its purported capability. Fast forward a few months and Elmer Sr. and his progeny are tag-teaming the Texas-built truck on a no-holds-barred week-long trip meant as a stress test to benchmark what potential owners can expect.



The daring duo also got their hands on a used Tundra for a frame of reference to see how much the new generation – which has a carryover powertrain – has really been improved. Elmers² started their journey outside of Toronto, Canada and will venture into the rough northern reaches of Canada, ending on the country’s east-most reaches in Newfoundland and Labrador. Their route follows the Trans-Labrador Highway, the majority of which is unpaved. With winter coming to an end, much of the path will be mired with mud and loose ground. To top it off, they are also towing a trailer with a snowmobile in it that weighs roughly 4,000 lbs.

2016 Tundra to Get Cummins Diesel

Feb 11, 2014 - 4:41 PM - by AutoGuide.com


The next-generation Toyota Tundra will receive a version of the same Cummins diesel powerplant as the next Nissan Titan pickup.

The Tundra will utilize a 5.0-liter turbo-diesel V8 from Cummins to power its next-generation Tundra, which is likely to make its debut in 2016 according to Ward’s Auto. It’s unclear how or whether the engines will differ in specifications, but the Nissan unit is expected to make over 300 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque.

According to an inside source, the Cummins diesel could be a placeholder for the Japanese automaker. Toyota was working on an in-house Tundra diesel engine until the market collapsed in 2008. Depending on demand for the the Cummins-powered model, Toyota will weigh the possibility of reviving the project.

Previously we had reported that Tundra diesel models were already undergoing testing.

Toyota TRD Pro Debuts With Trio of Off-Roaders

Feb 06, 2014 - 7:58 AM - by AutoGuide.com


Toyota is bringing three of its most rugged vehicles available some off-road specific upgrades, and has revaled all three TRD Pro models at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show.

The Tundra, Tacoma and 4Runner are the vehicles in question, and each will receive the same group of enhancements along with some model-exclusive new features. Powertrains remain untouched, with all of the add-ons coming to the suspension, interior and exterior.

Every single TRD Pro equipped vehicle will feature TRD Bilstein shocks with remote reservoir, TRD-tuned front springs, front skid plate, a unique grille with a large Toyota badge in the center. All three of the vehicles feature a lifted front end, with the Tundra and Tacoma jumping up by 2 inches while the 4Runner gets jacked up by 1.5.

On the inside, TRD themed floor mat and shift knobs are fitted, while the exterior features a new shade of orange known as ‘Inferno,’ along with black wheels. Black and Super White exterior paint finishes can also be had.

On to the specifics. If you purchase a TRD Pro Tundra, there are a number of enhancements that Tacoma and 4Runner buyers won’t get. The first is 18-inch alloy wheels along with TRD Pro stamping right into the quarter panel. Tundra TRD Pro buyers will also get unique interior seat color along with exclusive instrument panel ornamentation.

Next, the TRD Pro Tacoma, which Toyota playfully refers to as the Taco Supreme, gets exclusive 16-inch beadlock wheels and a TRD exhaust.

Lastly, the 4Runner TRD Pro, known as the Rock Star 4Runner, gets an additional 1-inch of wheel travel along with new 17-inch all black TRD wheels. Black front and rear bumper accents complete the new look.
