2014 Tundra Buy or Lease in Birmingham


The Tundra from Toyota has been one of the most popular pickup trucks in the United States for years, and that trend continues with the redesigned 2014 Tundra.  Making the decision to get a new car is hard enough without also having to decide whether you want to lease or buy your vehicle. Both options exist because they each have their set of benefits, making leasing better for some, while buying is best for others.


No matter whether you choose to buy or lease your 2014 Tundra in Birmingham, you will get the same exact features. The standard model will have 270 horsepower as well as a 278-pound-foot V-6 engine that is 4 liters. This standard model of the 2014 Tundra will also get about 15 miles per gallon in the city and about 19 on the highway, regardless of whether you lease or buy it.


One of the first things people should consider when deciding to buy or lease their 2014 Tundra is the level of commitment involved. Those who will pick a car or truck and keep using it for a decade (or longer) until it starts to break down should strongly consider buying if it is a financial possibility. If, however, you like to always have the most current car available and don’t see yourself driving the 2014 Tundra for more than a few years, leasing can help save you from the future hassle of trading in your car or having to sell it.

Price and Investment

Many people that choose to lease their 2014 Tundra instead of buying it do so for financial reasons. Leasing tends to be a lot less expensive than buying because the down payment for leasing is usually much less than for buying. After that, each monthly payment is usually less. This allows you to lease a nicer model of the Tundra than you would be able to afford if you were buying. The thing to keep in mind, however, is that is buying will be an investment and the car will be yours to keep, providing you free transportation after you have paid for it in full.


A final consideration is how rough you tend to be on the cars that you drive. Although not always the case, most leases expect you to return the car in good condition, or at least similar condition to what you received it in. This means that if you tend to accidentally rip upholstery or dent your car, you should probably consider buying. Otherwise you may be charged fees for “excessive wear and tear.”
