Toyota completely redesigned Tundra for 2014, offering it in three cab configurations, five grades and with three engines -- one V-6 and two V-8s. Although the 270-horsepower V-6 delivers better fuel economy, the 381-horsepower, 5.7-liter V-8 is the most popular Tundra engine with owners. A five-speed automatic transmission comes with the V-6, and a six-speed automatic with the V-8s.

Every grade of Tundra sports a distinct look and theme; however, no matter the grade, each comes equipped with a backup camera and Bluetooth connectivity. Tundra is the only full-size pickup to offer a blind-spot monitor with cross-traffic alert on some grades.

Tundras scheduled for auto-show test drives will be outfitted with Bilstien shocks, 18-inch off-road alloy wheels and skid plates.
