#477 of 2007 Actual Mileage Figures?
Dec 23, 2006 (12:01 pm)
Sorry but I did not see a section that I thought this question would fit in. Being new to this forum (not to the discussion concept) may I suggest to the moderators that it is a bit confusing. The topics need re-thinking, I did not see anything when looking to even start a new thread, thus I posted here. Threads that seemed to fit had this "Attention" and then they just had a link that dumped you back into the topic area.
What are the REAL figures people are getting as far as MPG city/highway for a 2006/2007 Tundra, V6 or V8 engines?
Currently I have a 1991 Ford F250, that served me well over the past years. Was more reliable then my 1986 Toyota 4X4 SR5, however after 180k miles the tranny went out and Im looking at a new truck. Im not crazy about what Ford offers today and Toyota is where I want to be. I see that they dropped a V6 with 4WD, did this mean they had problems and it was under powered? My goal is to find a model that has decent mileage and 4Wd.

So your saying it can get 381 hp and 405 lbs ft torque while delivering 20 MPG. Thats worth trading in for my Ram.

Usually when they add or drop models it's because the buyers are not asking for a specific combination. It's true that they aren't offering a 4WD V6 but it's because of lack of demand.... and the Tacoma has the same V6 with 4WD.

Just read that the 2008 Tundra will be one of those models that can use the different alternative types of fuel such as is on some of the GM cars already.
That would be great.
#481 of 2007 Crew Max w/ 5.7 L V8 Vtt-i

This post are some of my questions on the Crew Max. 1972ck
will the Crew Max get the same Gas Mileage as the Double Cab? Also will the Crew Max have a longbed option? If so how long will the longbed be? My final question is in January will they still be selling the 2006 Tundra?I've heard the 2007 Tundra comes in Feb. '07.

The Gas Mileage is one of the key points to be debuted on January 7th.
As of now there is no standard bed or long bed option on the CrewMax. The initial 31 configurations have been published now for a month or so.
The availability of 2006 models depends on each individual store. I believe that 2006 production has stopped now at Princeton since it will start up the 2007 CrewMax next week. What 2006's are out there are the last ones.
IMO most stores will run out of '06 models before the '07s arrive in Feb.

Just spent four days in an '07 Tundra Double Cab with the 4.7 V-8 and FIVE-SPEED auto. I've owned everything but a Dodge, and am a retired automotive journalist, so I do have quite a bit of experience comparing vehicles, and although my family tie to Toyota admittedly makes me a bit biased, IMO the Tundra is the real deal. I currently have a Tacoma Prerunner Double Dab, and still wasn't used to the Tundra's size, but the fit and finish were excellent -- given that it was a quality control test truck. Had good power, fuel economy in an even mix of city, freeway and rural driving was about 17, and the ride quality was better than expected. Even I don't know the price yet, but don't think the truck itself with disappoint anyone.

My source tells me the Crew Max will be available beginning in March, with most dealers being well stocked by late April or early May.

Tested 0-60 in 7.5 by C&D, with 6.0.
Who wants to be Tundra's time? I say 6.9.

Toyota hasn't released the fuel economy ratings to anyone. My guess would be...yes they will be the same. (EPA ratings) The Crew Max looks as though it has the same chassis as the Double Cab L/B. I too would like to see a 6 1/4' bed on a Crew Max as well. The Crew Max is being built to compete with the Ford F150 Crew. Which is only available in a smaller bed configuration. Perhaps if enough people complain/ask Toyota might be willing to stretch the new Tundras platform to enable them to build a bigger box for the back. It all going to based upon Toyota feeling if they spend the extra coin to develop it will it sell. (?) My guess is there are no current plans for the 6 1/4' bed for the Crew Max. The Crew Max is scheduled to be avaible for sale on dealer's lot in April. That's the latest I have heard from corporate. The 2006 Tundra is all done as far as production. The '06 inventory levels are getting scarce. Dealers should start getting their '07's by the last week in Jan. and the 1st weel in February. The transport companies only ship to dealers when the have a full load of vehicles going to a particulaer area. That being said...with the new Tundra being that much larger than the current generation Tundra. The transport rigs should be filled quicker. (bigger truck takes up more space)
