#72 of 101 2004 ends and price
Jun 10, 2004 (10:21 pm)
I'm wondering about when the 2005 Tundra is coming out. Also was wondering if the price of the 2004 goes down with the end of the 04 selling season?
I've heard that the battery/gas Tundra will come out some time well after the start of 2005 but before the 2006 season begins.(??)

Was at my dealership and was told the 06 will be out in late 05 with the V8 hybrid, this truck on the exterior looks very much like the concept that was shown this year the FTX, it is a huge truck, and powerful.

2005 model has been announced at Toyota.com with all details you will want. The highlight is the 282 HP V8 giving 22mpg highway !

I'm afraid the 23mpg double cab and 24mpg reg/access cab info may be wrong. The Flash demos on the Tundra for the VVT-i says 240->282 HP and 18->19 MPG increases. So right now, Toyota is contradicting themselves.

The FTX is coming out in 2007 . Its 4WD.Its a double cab. I think the FTX is a beautiful truck. its chevy duty and its back is the same size as the exteryear.Finly more room lol . The chevy avelanch is going down :sick. With FTX es low mileage . well im done so if anyone what to add to message go ahead.

I took my 2005 Tundra in for 30000 mile maintenance today.
They wanted to sell me a fuel system cleaning to remove
carbon deposits...etc from the injectores and other parts
of the fuel system. It was over a hundred dollars and I passed. Is any one aware of a commerical off the shelf product
that would achieve the same results?

Does anyone know if the new Tundras are just going to be bigger, stronger "play" trucks like the Ridgeline and Titan or are they going to provide real work trucks to compete with Ford and GM?? Like f350 dually dump trucks and utility body trucks??

I have a question. I've heard that over 90 percent of truck buyers never even come close to maxing their current pickup trucks ability. And everytime I see a dually or an F350, it's rare that it's pulling anything, let alone sumpin huge. Does a trucks stats have to account for the 10 percenters? It must and I understand that. I've got a friend who's owned several F150's and he's never lugged anything more than an aluminum boat for duck hunting and since he's had kids, it's just a really heavy diaper bag. More is better but I'm just thinking out loud.

My guess is that that's a fairly accurate stat. A lot of the dually 350's or 3500's are probably dump trucks and stake bodies that do haul a lot of weight. Some, that still have the original p/u body, are outfitted with the "5th wheel" for hauling campers and trailers, but the rest are probably just because bigger is better. Personally, I need a work truck which I will outfit like a UHaul truck--big box on the back with "cab over", for all my tools and equipment. I've always had good luck with Toyotas(over 30 years) and I'm hoping the trucks can grow with me. My current '97 4 cylinder T-100 is WAY over worked!!
