Road Test & Review

2016 Toyota Tundra 4x4 CrewMax Platinum 1794 Edition Road Test Review

Who makes the boldest, toughest looking pickup trucks on earth? That depends on personal taste of course, but Toyota makes

a good argument for being on top of that list with its latest Tundra.

There’s as much chrome on this truck’s grille as a big-rig Freightliner. It wraps right overtop the front of the hood and all the way over to each combination headlamp before diving down to where the front bumper begins, a light metallic matte grey centre cap the only chrome relief, although it’s bookended by circular fog lamp-enhanced chromed corners at both sides. Of course there are plenty of engine vents sliced horizontally across all that metal brightwork, even a thick, broad one at top that’s too close to the grille to be a hood scoop albeit fulfills the same purpose and looks plenty assertive doing so, while those headlamps are filled with chrome-like mirroring and de rigueur LEDs.

It’s pretty obvious this truck isn’t base, that mostly fleet-purchased model featuring

more matte black plastic in one area than you’ve likely ever seen, usually made even more apparent thanks to the majority of companies’ choice of Alpine White paint. My absolute top of the line Tundra 4x4 CrewMax Platinum 1794 Edition was no white knight, but rather a kingly Sunset Bronze Mica that went further to look bejeweled with chrome mirror caps, chromed door handles and chrome wheels. The rear end design gets a body-colour bumper with integrated top steps and a nicely finished tailgate with stylish taillights at each corner. The look is strong and anything but subtle, but Toyota fortunately backs up all this flashy boldness with some serious muscle under-hood.

That would be the brand’s 5.7-litre V8 also found in the full-size Sequoia SUV and Lexus’ even more capable LX 570, a brute of an engine when it comes to pulling power

and accelerative force, albeit nicely refined for a pickup truck. The DOHC, 32-valve 5.7 i-Force mill comes standard with the four-door CrewMax body, complete with dual variable valve timing with intelligence (VVT-i) and an electronic throttle control system with intelligence (ETCS-i), the end result being 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque fed to all four wheels via Toyota’s Super ECT six-speed automatic with manual shift mode that gives the so-equipped Tundra a considerable 4,305-kilo (9,490-lb) trailering capacity and 590-kg (1,305-lb) payload. Its four-wheel drive is the usual part-time system activated via a simple dial on the dash, although for most driving you’ll want to leave it in 2WD or 4H to save on fuel, which is five-cycle EnerGuide rated at 18.2 L/100km city, 14.1 highway and 16.3 combined.

The

Tundra’s ride is a little firm, although its big 275/55R20s and rigid suspension translate into deft handling that’s capable of rounding curving roads with agility while tracking confidently on the highway, its rugged undercarriage also notable for getting into and out of the great outdoors in one piece.

Toyota trucks are rugged to the core, and their 4x4 prowess is legendary. Likewise, the brand’s incredible dependability is a major reason owners buy into the name over and over again. In the most recent J.D. Power and Associates 2015 Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) Toyota was the highest-ranking mainstream volume brand, only bested by two premium brands that don’t make pickup trucks, one of which was Toyota’s luxury brand, Lexus.

All full-size pickup trucks offer higher end models designed to attract well-paid contractors

and other well-to-do roughnecks, the crème de la crème amongst Tundras being this Platinum 1794 Edition. The “1794” designation commemorates the year the JLC Ranch was founded, which was the land Toyota purchased to build the Tundra’s San Antonio, Texas assembly plant. The 809-hectare (2,000-acre or in other words 157 football field-sized) property, originally founded by Canary Islander Don Juan Ignacio Perez de Casanova (really, we couldn’t make a name that good up) went from employing four (yes, 4) to about 6,000 people, and I have to say the truck is a respectable salute to the once-proud family farm.

I can just imagine Don Juan sitting upon his similarly coloured saddle-brown perch, albeit fitted to an entirely different type of one-horsepower steed than this workhorse. The 1794’s embossed leather is truly stunning even amongst premium-level

pickup trucks, with perforated inserts and heavily textured bolsters that even include a rich strip of suede-like material theoretically for holding backside in place while power-sliding it down Texan backcountry gravel roads (or gravel pits closer to home). The entire cabin is truly something to behold, especially across the instrument panel and tops of each door where the same saddle leather is stitched together with white contrast thread, not to mention padded nicely underneath, that theme continuing onto the big, wide armrest between the seats (complete with a chromed and star-emblazoned “1794 EDITION” plaque at centre) as well as the lower console around the shifter, along with more of that wonderful suede used for edging. Yup, it’s one rich rancher’s ride.

Adding

to this is faux woodgrain across the dash and down each door panel, where it feels quite substantive, a lesson in doing it right I’d say, while the partially leather-wrapped and wood-encircled steering wheel, plus the wood on the shift knob is 100-percent authentic on both counts, and nicely matches the emulated stuff.

Along with the just noted stitched leather-like soft bits, the dash gets an attractive satin-silver treatment surrounding the centre stack that visually carries over to the gear selector surround, while loads of chrome detailing blings up the cabin. A nicely laid out primary gauge package is easy to read in any light, and at centre is filled with a colourful and very clear multi-information display.

Atop

the centre stack is another clear and bright full-colour high-resolution display, albeit this one’s a touchscreen for the infotainment system. It splits to show more info at a glance, and includes an exceptionally clear backup camera, a colourful and very accurate navigation system with excellent mapping, plus loads of useful Toyota apps. Below the infotainment screen is a dual-zone automatic HVAC system with a digital display showing fan speed, vent direction, temperature readouts on both sides, plus heatable and/or ventilated seats, which are three-way controllable for each feature. The JBL audio system is very good and still comes with a CD player, a feature I happen to appreciate, but it should be noted I was also able to connect my smartphone via USB port or Bluetooth streaming audio, and hands-free phone, of course.

All the features specific to the 1794 Edition have been mentioned already, and include

that big chrome grille surround, bright grey centre bumper cap, chromed steel front bumper ends, the 20-inch chrome-clad wheels, all the woodgrain and leather/suede interior upgrades, plus the associated trim badging, while features that come as part of this model’s Platinum trim include power-folding and power-adjustable heatable side mirrors with integrated turn signals and puddle lamps, the aforementioned heatable and ventilated seats that are also 10-way adjustable for the driver (even featuring powered lumbar and variable-length lower cushion adjustment) and four-way adjustable for the front passenger, plus a 60/40-split rear bench seat with a flip-down centre armrest and flip-up lower cushions, a powered tilt and telescopic multifunction steering wheel with memory that also adjusts the side mirrors and driver’s seat, the seven-inch infotainment system with navigation and 12-speaker JBL display audio system noted earlier, most of the chrome interior accents, the billet-style grille, colour-keyed rear bumper, and spray-in bedliner.

Items

pulled up from Limited trim include the previously noted chrome mirror caps and door handles, the fog lamps, leather dash trim and dual-zone auto HVAC, plus auto on/off headlamps, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, clearance and backup sensors, a garage door opener, a powered moonroof, a bed rail system with a set of four tie-down cleats, an anti-theft system, and blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, whereas features the come standard on the base 4x4 CrewMax SR5 that are also included with this 1794 Edition include the 3.5-inch TFT multi-information display, backup camera and soft door trim noted earlier, as well as keyless entry, variable intermittent wipers and a windshield de-icer, cruise control, dual illuminated vanity mirrors, and a powered vertical sliding rear window (how cool is that?), as well as its 5.5-foot cargo bed, removable locking Easy Lower & Lift tailgate that drops down as smooth and noiselessly as a Lexus LS’ glove box lid, a tow package including a heavy-duty hitch receiver, 4+7 pin connectors, trailer brake controller prewire, a supplemental

transmission cooler and transmission temperature gauge, and lastly all the usual airbags as well as a knee blocker each for the driver and front passenger.

All of this kit comes in a cabin that’s amazingly large and accommodating, the front seats wonderfully comfortable with superb lower back support and so easily adjustable that any body type should be able to find a comfortable position. In back the CrewMax cab’s legroom is a limousine-like while the seats are also very good for the class. You can also flip up the lower rear cushions if you want to use the rear seating area for stowing cargo.

Due

to its high-quality workmanship and good Toyota name I give the Tundra a solid thumb up, but if the Japanese brand seriously wants to eat into the multi-million half-ton pickup truck market in a big way it needs hurry up and get the promised Cummins diesel to market soon.

This Platinum 1794 Edition is certainly a good way to get attention in the meantime, while satisfying a select market of premium pickup truck buyers. It’s also a very strong performer and should be as reliable as most other Toyota products, while I must say its very reasonable as-tested $57,285 asking price is truly impressive for such a fully loaded luxury ride, so I believe it’s well worth your consideration.

One thing’s for sure, you’ll enjoy a much more exclusive ride that’ll get long, envious stares from neighbours and passersby, or at least that’s what I experienced, along with some very positive comments from strangers walking past. I’ve rarely had that with any pickup truck, something that’s hard to put a price on, but one any proud owner enjoys each and every time it happens.
