2014 Tundra Awards
The 2014 Tundra has been impressing drivers since it was first released. This is an excellent truck for families as it has four doors and seating for five people. It also offers a great deal more comfort that the previous models, although the standard engine is the same. That standard engine, however, has been on the road for several years and proven that it can get the job done efficiently and effectively.
Just like its manufacturer, Toyota, the 2014 Tundra has already been the recipient of many awards from a range of sources. Kelley Blue Book, IntelliChoice, and Cars.com are just some of the companies that have given awards to the 2014 Tundra for its value, performance, and durability. IHS Automotive has pointed out that 80 percent of Toyotas that were sold within the previous 20 years can still be found on the road, and it offers a similar accolade for the 2014 Tundra.
The area in which the 2014 Tundra has received the largest number of awards and other accolades is in terms of its value, both from the initial purchase and over time. This truck received the 2014 KBB.com Best Resale Value Award, which means that the Tundra has the best resale value out of all the vehicles in its class according to Kelley Blue Book’s website. Kelley Blue Book also included it in its top 10 list of Best Resale Value for all classes.

As mentioned, Toyota cars in general have a history of being durable with 80 percent of those sold within the past 20 years still being on the road. The 2014 Tundra as well as its predecessor has received a similar accolade from IHS Automotive with more than 90 percent of Toyota Tundras that were sold in the last 10 years still being on the road today.
The 2014 Tundra is not only durable and an excellent value, but it also has helped encourage American industry. It received an Industry Accolade for Highest Percentage of Parts Content. This means that out of all of the full-sized pickup trucks, the 2014 Tundra has the highest percentage of parts from the United States and Canada.
The 2014 Tundra is not the first one of its line to receive a series of awards. The 2013 Tundra, its predecessor, was named the 2013 Best Bet by Cars.com. This previous award shows that the Tundra has improved over the years but has always been an excellent choice.
With all the awards the 2014 Tundra has received, any model that you select can be an excellent decision. You can still talk to an expert at Limbaugh Toyota in Birmingham, Alabama, to see if you should go with the standard model or a different one with more features.
