2021 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition Review – Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Texas is located on a gigantic plot of land outside of San Antonio. I have been there and taken a tour of the entire plant and witnessed this non-stop production of tundra and Tacoma trucks. Tacoma, of course, has the highest resale value of any vehicle in the country, according to the Kelley Blue Book. Tundra sits proudly at # 3. The huge TMMTX production facility that builds these truck giants is a huge city of its own.
This giant Metropol also sits on what was once the oldest working cattle ranch in Texas. Think J.R. Ewing drive up the long driveway to Southfork Ranch in his 2021 Toyota Tundra. Well, not really. But as fate would eventually have it, JLC Ranch was established on this site in 1794. From this rich history comes one of the most unique, One-of-a-kind tundra Trucks ever built-1794.
Like most of its 2021 Toyota Tundra trim level counterparts, the 1794 Edition drives with a 5.7 L V8 engine producing 381 horsepower and 401 lb.-ft. torque. This beast has what it takes to get you going strong and keep you going. I was surprised at how smooth it feels to drive both at lower speeds in the city and at highway cruising speeds during the test drive part of my review.
The 1794 edition is available both in two-wheel drive and part-time with four-wheel drive. You will find it exclusively configured as a CrewMax cabin, which has two full size front doors and two full size rear doors, an extremely spacious rear seat and a 5.5 foot bed.
First off, you will know it is a 1794 version of the mere fact that you can see the “1794 edition” badging over both the exterior and inside the truck. Even floor mats proudly announce its 1794 heritage.
I am always a fan of LED lighting so I was thrilled to find the 2021 Toyota Tundra 1794 is equipped with LED headlights, LED daytime running lights and LED Fog Lights. Not only does it look clean and polished and luxurious, but LED lights give you greater visibility and they last longer.
Chrome accents can be found over the exterior. The front grille and bumper are mainly accented in chrome. People know you mean business when you pull up. The 1794 edition comes with 20 “alloy wheels. You can choose to upgrade to 20” chrome clad alloy wheels, which are available for a very reasonable $ 110 cost.
Inside the cabin you will find the trademark 1794 – its exclusive brown leather seats. Brown leather seats with suede accents, that is. At first glance, you might think it looks out of place. But it grows on you fast and it works.
I appreciated the versatility of the 12-way Power driver’s seat with memory settings, along with the 6-way power passenger seat. The seats feel comfortable and provide solid back and lower back support.
Toyota unveils the 1794 edition with standard Entune Premium audio with navigation. If you love crystal clear music, you can enjoy standard JBL sound with 12 speakers including subwoofer and amplifier. At the JBL Music Festival last fall in Las Vegas, I learned that JBL takes a huge toll on delivering concert-like performance sound while driving.
The final interior feature you really want is the vertical effect rear window. You can let the outside air in with a single push of a button.
One of the main reasons we remain loyal to Toyota is the long-standing reputation for quality, reliability and reliability. Another is security. All tundras come standard with Toyota Safety Sense, which helps you avoid and prevent potential distractions and accidents by providing you with pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, Lane Departure Alert with Sway warning, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.
Other peace of mind security benefits include 8 standard airbags, blind spot screen with rear cross-traffic alarm and parking sonars in both front and rear.
My feeling is that the tundra 1794 has a look and feel, especially on the inside, like the harkens back to Yesteryear. Some might call it a bit outdated. But it is also part of its charm. It has lots of features that balance it out and bring it up to the present times, including its many luxury features. My suggestion is that you look at the 2021 Toyota Tundra 1794 edition up close and personal and give it a good old fashioned test drive. You might just be pleasantly surprised.
What do you think of the 2021 Toyota Tundra 1794 edition. Would you buy a full size 4×2 or 4×4 truck? General feelings about the tundra? Thanks for reading everyone! Enjoy your weekends and see you next story.
