Toyota's solution was simple...
Copy the American trucks as much as possible...throw a bunch of power at it and call themselves the best. Sounds simple huh?....Time will reveal that there is MUCH MORE to it than that if you want to be in it for the long haul (pun intended).
From what I hear, the Toyota does not ride as nice and provides a very rough ride on bumpy roads. This can only lead to one thing....rattles!! I hate rattleboxes and I would like to see how a Tundra rides and sounds after about 50K miles. My 2000 GMC Sierra now has 90K miles on it and I am proud to say it has 0, zero, zilch, nada...NO rattles. It rides as smooth and quiet as the day I got it. With the exception of a little wind noise from one of my rear pass wing windows (ext cab) under certain conditions (speed, wind direction, etc). Truck or not, today's half tons should ride and sound like a car. They are by far the most versatile and practical vehicle a person can own and should carry the attributes of a truck, car and SUV as far as capability, power, ride, amenities, etc, etc.
I am confident my new 2007 will be no different than my last 2 GMC's. Simply the best. My experience speaks for itself. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY can tell me different.

Thanks for taking the time to respond to my post but you totally missed my question. In all fairness I want to know how the previous generation Tundra failed and how the new one has fixed the predecessors shortcomings. Obviously, there is more hp and more towing capabilities but what else?
I really could care less hearing about the GM products much less your experience with your GM truck.
I really don't agree with the following statement- "Truck or not, today's half tons should ride and sound like a car."
If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck then...? I don't expect a truck to drive like a car, I expect it to drive like a truck- Big, powerful, and torquey. Am I missing something here? Who wants to tool around in a girly truck? I'm not saying either one of these trucks are girly.
I do agree that time will tell how the new Toyota will turn out. But from the outset, it looks like it has the goods.

Sorry, you're right. I should have rambled on about that in another post, I really didn't intend to address your question....my bad.
