Filed under: Chicago Auto Show , Spy Photos , Truck , Toyota When Toyota first announced that it would be bringing the 2014 Tundra pickup to next month’s Chicago Auto Show , we weren’t quite sure if the truck would fall into the “all-new” or “refreshed” category. After seeing this latest set of spy shots, we’re striking “all-new” from the record, but the enhancements do appear to be more than just a simple nip/tuck. While the overall shape and greenhouse haven’t really changed, heavy cladding found on the front fascia suggests that a totally redesigned nose is in store, with a fully reworked grille flanked by new headlamps. Smaller styling details are hidden by the big panels of camouflage, but we anticipate a few minor tweaks to the rest of the pickup’s design when all that black tape finally comes off. Mum’s the word on powertrain enhancements (if any), as well as any changes that have been made to the chassis. But with the updated 2013 Ram 1500 already on the street, the recent unveiling of the updated 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra twins, and a preview of what’s to come from the likes of Ford , we certainly hope Toyota has injected enough new blood into its 2014 model year pickup to keep it competitive in this American-dominated segment. We’ll know for sure come Chicago. Redesigned 2014 Toyota Tundra spied testing in Canada originally appeared on Autoblog on Tue, 29 Jan 2013 17:25:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds .

We’ve already reported that Nissan is planning a redesign of its Titan truck for 2015, and now Toyota has announced that it will be revealing the 2014 Tundra next month at the Chicago Auto Show . In the brief press release posted below , Toyota says that the 2014 Tundra will be “redesigned,” but it’s unclear as to whether this means we’ll be seeing an all-new truck or just an extensive refresh. The current Tundra design has been around since 2007 and sales are hardly worrisome to the Big Three, so a new design would be a logical guess. In any case, we only have to wait a couple more weeks for the new Tundra to debut on February 7, and we’ll be on hand to bring you plenty of live coverage from the show.
