Age is just a number, right? Well, not in the automotive world. In an industry that’s reinventing itself faster than ever, the 14-year-old Toyota Tundra stands as one of the oldest vehicles on sale. First released in 2007—with a major face-lift in 2014—the current Tundra is without a doubt on its last leg. But a new one is right around the corner, so we thought we’d take one last look at a 2021 Tundra TRD Pro to see if the new truck could learn anything from its predecessor.
The interior is a perfect example of the way things used to be done. The industry, especially full-size trucks, has moved away from a setup like the Tundra’s. A single, 8.0-inch touchscreen sits in the middle of the dashboard, and a set of huge analog dials is housed in the gauge cluster.
These days, everything is dominated by customizable displays and vast, tablet-like touchscreens. There’s also a move toward luxury—a trend we don’t necessarily mind when it comes to trucks, vehicles that have to play the roles of workhorse, daily driver, and occasional off-roader.
