I finally got sick of seeing new Tundra after Tundra drive by my dad's store. This morning before I went to work I went up to the Toyota dealer and talked to one of my very good clients - he also happens to be the number #1 Toyota salesman in the area... After shooting the shi.... for a while I asked him what he though about the new Tundra's - he said they are a very good and capable 1/2 ton but they have a higher price point than the big three... An extended cab 4x4 5.7 litre V-8 high 20's low 30's... He said go take the one sitting out front for a spin - bring it back whenever... Sure, I said!!! Initial thoughts - Very quick, like driving a B grade sports car. Visibility isn't that great Lots of knobs, buttons, and lights Traction control was awesome - I found some 100% snow covered/ice roads and the traction control was perfect. Six speed auto tranny seemed very stout and predictable. The engine/tranny is what makes this 1/2 ton stand out from the rest. Styling - a little different, interior of the cab is very car like and not exactly to my liking since I am used to more cab forward engineering like the big three... Overall - impressed with the capability - didn't tow anything though. Should get good overall mileage with 380 hp and 400 lbs torque... The nod would go to the Yota for the engine with 32 valve technology and double VVTI over GM, Ford and Dodge but overall build quality is similar or the same as any of the big three.
