The 2014 Tundra comes in several different models, including the SR5, the Limited, the Platinum, and the 1794 Edition. While each model has the same general style, you tend to see more features and comfort as you go up the ranks of models. Because of this, you can expect the 2014 Tundra Limited to have slightly more features than the SR5.

One of the first differences you will notice between these two models is in terms of appearance. While both models have a lower front that is matte black as well as chrome end caps, their grills are different. The 2014 Tundra SR5 has a matte black grille, while the grille on the Limited is silver billet; both have a chrome grille surround. Remember that the Tundra Limited will be slightly more expensive than the SR5, but it has additional features to make up for the difference in price.

Price and Value

As mentioned, the 2014 Tundra Limited is a luxury model compared with the SR5, and because of this there is usually a difference of a few thousand dollars in price. Despite the differences in price, Kelley Blue Book estimates that they will have comparable resale values when you look at the percentage of your initial investment instead of the raw numbers.

The engine and driving performance are two of the areas where the extra money you pay for the Tundra Limited becomes worth it.
