Yes, the 4.7 is will still be available. My guess is that eventually the 4.7 will be discontinued. This new "1/2 ton" is built like a 3/4 ton. With it's available towing and payload capacities this new Tundra will do what 99% of what most truck buyers do with their full sized p/u.
I've heard rumors that a heavier duty 3/4 and 1 ton are in development. I believe the situation is this...if Toyota sells over 200,000 of this new Tundra for MY2007 then Toyota will build the "heavy duty" trucks. Toyota has the additional space already in their new Texas plant to build a facility to manufacture a heavy duty pick up. I wouldn't expect a 3/4 or 1 ton until around 2010. When the '07 is out...drive one. You see what I mean. If you get a knowledgable "truck guy" when you go to your local dealer who can explain and show you the capabilities of this new Tundra you'll understand.

Boy that's a tough one. The current generation Tundra is a great truck. And yes there are programs to move 'em. I don't think you'll see any programs on the '07 truck for awhile. I guess the decision is really yours to make. Do you want to pay more for "the new kid on the block" or will the current generation be fine for what you need it for? If you're looking for something that will tow 6,600 lb.s and get a discount...by the '06. If you can wait till February or so for your purchase and can live with yourself for paying a bit more for more towing, power and size. Well, wait. My Double Cab SR5, TRD Off Road 4WD will be on the market come Feb. I'll get 'ya a good deal on my used one. Hee-hee.

Not only do they pick the Tundra as top large truck but they also pick the Tundra as the Most Significant Vehicle of The Year for 2007!
I have been offered a 2007 Tundra at cost once all the hoopla passes. I am very impatient individual and the editor's at Edmunds are not helping!

Wow I got to drive a supercharged 2007 tundra today and let me tell you that it is amazing....if your not on a list to buy one I suggest you do...I also drove a lifted 2007 tundra and it was equally impressive.

Toyota still has not released any EPA ratings on the new 5.7 liter. I've heard rumors of this new "300-20 club" it's what auto manufacture's are calling any new V8 with 300 plus hp and gets 20 mpg hwy. The new Tundra is supposed to be in that "club". Again, no official word from Toyota.
It would be nice though,aye? 380 some odd horses and 20 mpg! Where do I sign? Should be the only question on a buyers mind.

Hey guys I was just at Wikipedia.com. I looked up the Toyota Tundra for 2007. They said Toyota announced that it had 381 horsepower and 20 miles per gallon!!!!!! I was very well impressed. If this is true Toyota will sell everyone they make. This is even better than Chevy's 315 horsepower Silverado giving 20 miles per gallon. I expect them to sell atleast 350,000 Tundras in 2007. then maybe in late 2008 they can start production of thier heavy duty line up. Just think about it... the Tundra 2500 and Tundra 3500.

I looked on Wikipedia.com and could not find any hp or EPA fuel economy ratings anywhere. Did I miss a link or something on that web page?

Turns out that the 381 horsepower Tundra will be the supercharge model the regular 5.7-liter should crank out some 350 horsepower and 390 lb ft torque. Who knows? Next month in mid-December Toyota will annouce their power numbers. I'm so anxious!
