What is this discussion about?
Dec 30, 2003 (12:13 pm)
I to am looking to purchase a Toyota Tundra Double Cab. I put down a deposit on one, but I to am wondering if and when Toyota plans to build a much larger engine, one that will compete with the Ford or Dodge larger engines. If Toyota plans to unveil in in the spring or summer of 2004, then I will purchase it then. I have heard rumors that Toyota plans to build a 5+liter engine, but I hope Toyota does not wait until 2006, the year that the San Antonio plant opens up, I can't wait that long.
A Toyota salesperson says that Toyota did build a Tundra with a supercharged engine, with much more horsepower than the 240 horsepower in the current model, because she has seen it. However, she does not know when Toyota plan to unveil it. I wonder, could one be in production now, and could come out in 6 months? Nobody from Toyota knows anything. I hope that one will be available within the next 6-8 months.
I was told that this car discusssion board is helpful with informtion, and I hope someone with post some helpful information.

There will be a full-size truck concept from Toyota at the Detroit Auto Show. It's a hint of the upcoming Tundra.

According to Toyota representative that I spoke with, the full-size truck concept with be a heavy duty pick-up, a dualy. One to compete with with the Ford 250/350. Thats what I was told.
I still have to believe Toyota will put a larger engine in the current Tundra, sooner rather than later.

Sources say that Toyota is currenty increasing displacement in all their cars. The first was the 3.0L V6 which was bumped to 3.3L. The next GS and LS are rumored to have a 4.5L V8, but not totally new. We are yet to see.

Detroit Auto show, it's a glimpse of the next generation Tundra! It will probably be the 2006 model year when these new trucks start rolling off the new assembly plant in San Antonio, Tx.

This is the one vehicle that anti-Detroit people seem to "forget" about. Do they think that these get 40 MPG and emit pure air?

pickup? Are they going to put a larger in the existing Tundra or bring out something totally new for 2005/2006?

I would really to see the Tundra with a manual transmission. Is there talk of that possibility?

I agree that a 3/4 ton Toyota pickup would be a fine thing! I'd like to see a Toyota made to compete with the F250 / F350 Ford SDs & their ilk. And most especially diesel engine & 6spd manual tranny options!

There's talk that there's a very good chance of a Lexus-based 5.5L coming out in the near future and I also thought I read somewhere that a 3/4 ton Tundra is a definite thing in a couple years. Either one or both would make Toyota much more competitive in the full-sized truck market.
