You are in the Toyota Tundra

I have been comparing the new Tundra crew cab and the GMC 2500 crew cab. Ever since I have owned Toyotas (10 years), I have not been a big three fan. The Tundra is a little taller and longer, but the shoulder room is less. It appears that the Tundra cab is about 4 inches narrower than the GMC. You can feel it when sitting in them. The GMC has much more buttons and switches and looks crowded compared with the dash of the Tundra. The GMC rear window does not open at all, the Tundra's opens completely. I still am unsure which one I really want. The low towing capacity keeps pushing me away from the Tundra, but my past experience with Toyota quality keeps pulling me back...

It all depends on what you would like to tow behind it.

I finally test drive the Nissan Titan over the weekend, and came away impressed. The Titan has much more to offer than the Tundra Double Cab does. Much more power of course, but it was roomier on the inside, much more than I anticipated. It has a rear sonar device that lets you know how close to something when backing up. The one I drove was fully loaded, it was an LE with Navagation and a DVD. The Titan is something to really consider. It is a monster truck, an impressive one.
Though I test drove the Tundra Double Cab briefly I knew what to expect. The Tundra is a much more smoother ride than the Titan. I really want the Tundra, but what happens if I eventually need more power? Does anyone know when Toyota plans to build a larger engine? I was told last year it would be soon. Could it be mid-year 2004? Or, will it be next fall? Will it be a 5.5 liter engine?

truck even greater I think. I know Nissan just came out with thier Titan,(and Nissan's aren't bad) but I'm willing to wait a little longer for Toyota to update it's Tundra and have that proven Toyota build quality!. I'm just wondering if thier going to put a larger engine in the double cab or build an all new vehicle/platform!

Does anyone have any links or information on Toyota's plans to put their Hybrid technology into the Tundra? All of you who want the big power, will pay the big cash at the pump. Hybrid is the future!
Thanks in advance for any links.

#69 of 101 2005 Tacoma: Debut @ Chicago Feb 4

According to a January 22 press release from Toyota (see the company's Press Room), the '2005 Tacoma X-Runner' will debut in a press conference at the Chicago Auto Show, February 4. I assume the 'Tacoma X-Runner' is a truck quite distinct from Toyota Australia's 2003 'X-Runner' concept, which was based on an Avalon.
Except for one spy shot of a 'masked' prototype that's been bouncing around the Web for a year, there are no 'real' photos of the new Tacoma. There are a couple of PhotoShopped pictures based on a current 4Runner, which the 2005 Taco is supposed to resemble in size and general looks.

anyone here know when will a hybrid tundra be out? I heard that toyota might start out with a gasoline verison first before morphing into a hybrid a year later. Anyone has something to add?

Last I heard, toyota plans to offer a hybrid drivetrain option in ALL models by the year 2010.
I don't know for sure in it will be a Tundra by then though. The plant opening in 2007 in San Antonio,TX will bring a lot to the plate for Toyota's truck buyers.
