Like my colleagues, I'm not blown away by the look and feel and of the Tundra's interior, especially given that this is the high-content, Limited-trim model. I am, however, impressed with virtually everything else within.
Toyota designers packed the Tundra's cabin with a plethora of storage cubbies, including latching boxes in both front doors, along with a pair of glove boxes and a center console big enough to swallow the Graf Zeppelin. I also dig the ability hold hanging folders in the center console, although I'm a little puzzled by the deep storage trench that's hidden between the shift gate and the cupholders -- if nothing else, it was a great way to tuck my iPod out of sight while leaving it plugged into the dash-mounted USB input.
For everyday use, I still like the Tundra's quick steering and usable cabin more than other quarter-ton pickups, although the Ram has certainly set a new benchmark for both ride quality and interior décor. Here's hoping Toyota's product planners are staring hard at that Dodge while crafting the next-generation Tundra.
