#103 of 2007 Tundra In 2006 International Auto Show
Dec 31, 2005 (6:29 pm)
Ive heard the last couple of days that Toyota is going to show of their Tundra in the 2006 International Autoshow. I know for sure its going to have up to 5.2-5.6 liter engine.
Horsepower will come from a V-TTI V8 engine. Ill bet you the 4.7 liter engine is going to be the basic engine.
Anyway the Auto show is going to be from January 2, 2006-
January 24, 2006. Im still looking for some Tickets to the show. Anyone know were I can get some cheap tickets? Reply back. Thanks!

I am not sure about the truck it is going in, the truck is being built in texas and we don't get much info on that. We will start full production on the engine Dec. 11 2006. i am not sure when they will be on the lots.
#108 of 2007 Well, Chicago is considered the year's "Truck Show"

But if it won't be out until the First of next year, NY may see this action!
Hopefully, I can make it there.
390HP sounds good, and with the LS460 engine making 380HP and combined mid-20's economy, maybe they can pull 18/22 out of this stump-puller. 6-speed Auto?

Yeah, I just bought a 2006 Tundra Limited V8 Doublecab with the DVD Nav system (Dec 30, 2005). I'm very happy with the truck and the DVD Nav system has worked very well for me. I think several of the strengths of the system are the Points of Interest (POI) database, the ability to choose from multiple routes (with graphical representations) if applicable, and finally the ability to add waypoints so that you can be guided to several points on the way to your final destination if so desired.
There is a limitation that is a bit annoying, though, but it is there for safety reasons. While the vehicle is moving, no one can input a destination for guidance (my inference here is not that *I* would want to do this while driving, but I might have a passenger who could). It's annoying to have to pull over to enter the destination, and so far I haven't found any way around this.
You posted this back in Oct, have you gotten yours yet?

There is a solution for the problem of not being able to set destinations while in motion: Make the display so that it will swivel toward the passenger, and allow programming when it is in that position. This should satisfy the customers and the lawyers. Toyota, are you listening?

Well the Tundra didnīt show up at NAIAS so when will it come? Does anyone think the car might have a version of the NASCAR-engine as an option? I understand you are aware of that Toyota is following the likes of Audi, BMW, Ford by developing engines using compacted graphite iron (CGI) for cylinder blocks. The Japanese vehicle manufacturer has, through its racing arm, developed a new lightweight CGI cylinder block for its 650hp 5.8-litre V8 gasoline engine, which has successfully been used by Toyota Racing Developments (TRD) in the Toyota Tundra pickups featuring in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in 2005.
