Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 9/16/2014 Karla Sanchez

The Toyota Tundra just received a major redesign for 2014, but the changes continue for the 2015 model year. The Japanese automaker has announced the full-size truck now offers standard V-8 power. With the V-6 option no longer available, the 2015 Tundra starts at $29,510.

The base V-6's departure leaves the 4.6-liter V-8 with 310 hp and 327 lb-ft of torque and more powerful 5.7-liter V-8 with 381 hp and 401 lb-ft as the only engine options for the Tundra. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, and rear-wheel drive is standard, with four-wheel available for either engine. Regular-cab Tundras will come standard with the bigger 5.7-liter V-8, as will the new-for-2015 TRD Pro models, which also come standard with four-wheel drive. The TRD Pro model stands apart from other Tundras with a special off-road suspension and an available spray-in bed liner. The new trim also gets a blacked-out front grille, TRD Pro bed panel stamping, skid plate, matte satin black badges, and black headlight bezels. Other goodies include 18-inch TRD black alloy wheels, Michelin Off-Road Package tires, and TRD dual exhaust system. 2015 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro© Provided by MotorTrend 2015 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro

Depending on configuration, pricing for the 2015 Toyota Tundra has increased either $275 or $315 over V-8-equipped 2014 models. Trim levels include the SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition, and TRD Pro, and depending on the trim chosen, buyers can choose between three cab styles: two-door Regular Cab, four-door Double Cab, and the super-sized four-door CrewMax. Regular Cab models come with a long bed that's 8.1-feet-long, while Double Cab models are offered with either a standard bed (6.5-foot) or long bed. The CrewMax comes with a 5.5-foot bed.

With the loss of the 4.0-liter V-6, the Tundra's base price increases $2595 compared to 2014, when you could get a two-wheel-drive SR Regular Cab model with the V-6 for $26,915. The 2015 SR model starts at $29,510, while upgrading to the SR5 costs $31,590. The Limited and Platinum models start at $41,350 and $46,425, respectively, while the 1974 Edition hikes the price up to $46,740. The 2015 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will start at $42,385.

As usual, a number of packages can further outfit the Tundra with extra niceties, including the Premium Package for Limited models and a TRD Off-road package for SR5 or Limited models.
