4 Surprising Facts About the Most Unique 2021 Toyota Tundra Trim
Toyota Tundra is one of the toughest full-size trucks around.
It is also one of the most reliable. Many owners brag about the high mileage on their odometers. In fact, I even wrote a Torque News story about Toyota Tacoma vs Tundra high miles club.
Yes, owners can rely on Tundra for dependability, toughness, and high resale value. But what about individual trim levels? How do you know what one is best for you and your family?
Today I focus on 2021 Tundra 1794 Edition.
This is one of those Tundra trim levels you may know about already. You may not at all.
Here are four facts you may not know about the most unique grade of 2021 Toyota Tundra.
The meaning of Tundra 1794 Edition
To me, the term 1794 Edition seems so deliberately specific – and so generically vague and mysterious at the same time.
I did a little digging, and it turns out there really is an answer.
1794 is the year the first working cattle ranch in Texas was established. This just so happens to sit on the grounds of what is now the Toyota Tundra manufacturing plant in San Antonio.
Mystery solved. Jinkies. I did not even need Shaggy and Scooby to solve this one.
Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition takes its styling cues from western and cowboy living and lifestyles. You can see it in its exterior features. The front grille is adorned with chrome accents and full LED lighting, including fog lights.
You can see this western vibe even more on the inside.
That Tundra 1794 interior
Saddle up pardners. Open one of the doors and you immediately know this grade is not like anything else in the Tundra fleet.
Interior styling is a combination of wood grain and brown. Saddle brown leather seats with ultra-suede and embossed accents highlight the cabin. This is the only seat color offered in Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition.
I found these seats to be extremely comfortable and gave me great spine and lower back support. Comes standard with a 12-way power driver’s seat (with memory seat settings) and 4-way power passenger seat. These seats are both heated and cooled / ventilated.
Twelve JBL speakers, including subwoofer and amplifier provide full, rich sound as you play your “Best of the 80’s” playlist. Oh wait, that is my playlist.
But there is one feature missing you may want to know about before thinking of buying.
No Toyota Tundra moonroof
You will not find a standard moonroof on your 2021 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition. It is available, however, as an optional upgrade at the factory level.
Since this is right at the top of the Tundra trim level lineup, I would have expected it standard. I want to make sure you do not assume a moonroof will be there when you are researching this truck, only to be disappointed when you buy it.
VIDEO REVIEW: Take a tour with me of 2021 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition
I found a moonroof on the 2021 Tundra 1794 I was evaluating and just assumed it was standard. Luckily, I looked closer at the window sticker and realized it is an optional upgrade.
Speaking of being at the top, time to discuss pricing.
2021 Tundra 1794 Edition price
A 2021 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition is available in CrewMax configuration only. No Double Cab.
You can purchase 1794 Edition Tundra in either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive.
Tundra 1794 in 4x2 has a factory MSRP (before delivery charge and extra options) of $49,045. A similar 4x4 Tundra starts at $52,095.
The surprising part to me is these are the identical MSRP figures for a Tundra Platinum 4x2 and 4x4. I guess not so surprising, though, considering both grades are considered the ultimate in Toyota Tundra luxury.

We are expecting a newly redesigned 2022 Tundra – coming soon. Toyota has not released any information yet (not even a scrap of even one specific detail). This leaves Tundra fans excited and offering their wish list items and suggestions for the new truck that everyone is waiting for.
I expected to find out details last month in February, since that is when Toyota has traditionally made big splash announcements. This is a strange year, and it did not happen – yet.
Oh well, soon enough we will learn all there is to know about our new 2022 Toyota Tundra.
I cannot wait.
