#52 of 101 whats the latest?
Sep 30, 2003 (2:00 pm)
I'm a little curious why I see so little media attention on the upcoming double cab as compared to the Titan and new F-150. Is it possible that Toyota is deliberately keeping it low key? Does anyone have anything solid on when we will start seeing them at dealers? Lastly, and this is really crystal ball stuff, but is Toyota planning to address the power short fall in their V8 to as compared to all the other full size trucks?
#53 of 101 When is the Toyota Double Cab coming out?

Toyota's website says the double cab will be available this Fall, when exactly is the Fall? I would like to see one in person, anyone out there see one yet?
#54 of 101 Tundra Double Cab expected
Oct 14, 2003 (7:27 am)
to hit dealer lots in early-November.
There is a rumor of a 5.4 or 5.5 V8 coming next year.
#55 of 101 Tundra Double Cab
Oct 15, 2003 (4:46 am)
For those who have seen the Double Cab, please comments after reading the attached article. I am very eager to purchase the Double Cab. I, like the writer of the attached article, owned a Tundra Access Cab, but sold it to purchase an Odyssey. I needed the space the access cab couldn't provide. Is Toyota sacrificing some of what made the Toyota an impressive vehicle for size? Does anyone know what the cost might be?
#56 of 101 due in NOV.
Oct 16, 2003 (12:38 pm)
Talked to my dealer today. They expect the first doublecab by mid November. The salesman stated emphatically that the current model tundra will continue in its present form. The doublecab is an addition too, not a replacement for the current truck line. He also said that a 3/4 ton model will follow but not for two years. I ask specifically if a lager engine would be available in the doublecab and was told no. This guy seems better informed that most sales people (which I know isn't saying much)
#57 of 101 six passenger model?
Oct 26, 2003 (4:12 pm)
I was just looking on the toyota web site and the tundra information available only mentions a five passenger seating setup for the doublecab. Does anyone know for sure if a six passenger setup will be available? It's hard to believe toyota would be that short sighted.
#58 of 101 DROVE A CREW CAB TODAY!
Nov 05, 2003 (6:48 pm)
MOST DEALERS IN DALLAS/FT. WORTH HAVE ONE CREW CAB TUNDRA, NO 4X4'S YET. I DROVE A LIMITED. A VERY NICE LOOKING TRUCK BUT I AM A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED. EVEN WITH THE STANDARD TOWING PKG,THE TOWING CAP.DROPS TO 6600 LBS ON A CREW CAB 4X4, AND NO BENCH SEAT IS AVAILABLE. THE TRUCK DID NOT FEEL HEAVY OR SLUGGISH AND HAS A GREAT RIDE. THIS DEALER ADDED $2000.00 TO THE MSRP AND SAID THEY WERENT COMING OFF OF IT FOR AWHILE! IT'S PROBABLY THE RIGHT TRUCK FOR ME ONCE THE PRICE GOES DOWN. I'M NOT INTO BIGGEST AND FASTEST, JUST THE BEST QUALITY. I THINK TOYOTA IS ABOUT TO BE PLAYING CATCH UP ONCE THE NEW NISSAN TITAN IS RELEASED NEXT MONTH. THEY HAVE ONCE AGAIN MISSED THE CHANCE TO WIN A LOT OF NEW CUSTOMERS AND DO SOMETHING GROUND BREAKING BY BEEFING UP THE MOTOR AND TOWING CAP..

It sounds like the guy responsible for the latest version of the dodge minivan not having a folding third row seat has a new job at Toyota. Every manufacturer except toyota offers a six passenger setup on their crew cabs. Not to mention 300 plus horsepower. I am very disappointed as I was looking forward to being a first time Toyota owner.
#60 of 101 Pricing on '04 Tundra Double Cabs
Nov 07, 2003 (3:39 pm)
I tried to post this once before and didn't realize I was breaking the Members Agreement. I'll post it again, listing only the retail prices for an '04 Double Cab.
Base retail for a 2004 Double Cab Tundra is $28975.00 (plus tax, title, license, service fees)
Expect to pay about $37903.00 for a loaded Limited level Double Cab Tundra.
Options included on our Double Cab are:
-all weather guard
-JBL AM/FM/Cass/6 CD in-dash changer & 8 speakers
-driver/front passenger heated seats
-leather seats w/driver's power seat
-overhead console w/compass, temp gauge, Homelink
-color-keyed running boards
-synthetic wood trim
-4.100mm limited slip differential
-130 amp alternator, transmission cooler
-carpet door mats w/door sill protector
If you are being told by a salesman there will be full sticker plus a premium, do the smart thing and walk out. I know we are not doing a premium here in central Wisconsin.
Hope this helps, let me know if you want any more specific information, I might be able to provide it.
#61 of 101 tried to see one today
Nov 10, 2003 (9:44 pm)
My wife and I went to pick up our Sequioa at the dealer for some routine maint. and was looking for the Double cab. Saw one, but didn't realize until looking through the windows that is was already sold and had temp tags on it. I guess it came in on 11/5 and was sold. It was a white limited. It looked very nice.
I would like to test drive one, especially after that less than stellar review about power (said it felt more like the Sequioa vs. the Tundra, power-wise).
Hopefully there will be more on the lot soon.
