Same problem here in AK locating a 4.6 V8. 44 5.7L's on the lot and only 3 4.6L's. Not much to choose from.

I'm of no help here, but just curious why you guys want the 4.6?
I understand not needing the 5.7, but you only save about 1k and 1 mpg. You get a lot more horses and pulling power out of the 5.7. If it were me, i'd get the 5.7 and not think twice. You'd really notice it when you're trying to pass someone and step on the gas. Awesome!

Since my last post I've found a 5.7L, I do like the power and speed of the bigger engine. I've found a deal at a DFW dealer that's offering 33,200 for a Texas Edition, 4x2. It's got 20" chrome rims, side steps, spray-in liner. With the 0% interest on the 60 month loan, it seems like a great deal. Does it sounds like a deal to yall?

If anyone has purchased one in the Northwest, please post what type, how much you paid and where. I'm in the market for a doublecab 5.7L 4x4. I live in Seattle but willing to drive a distance for a good deal. Edmunds estimate i get is $27k without options after the $2500 rebate. I'm wondering if anyone has been able to pay this price with some options.

Purchased a new 2010 Tundra SR5 (8241) 2WD . Base price ($27,240) Extras included 18" Alloy Wheels ($1,020), Cold Weather Pkg ($160), Deck rail system ($135), AM/FM/CD/MP3 (($510), Fog lamps ($110), Power heated mirrors ($30), Cloth bucket seats ($605), Daytime running lamps ($40), SR5 Pkg ($915), Power sliding rear windoe ($425), Delivery, processing, handling fee ($795) TOTAL MSRP= $31,985. SELLING PRICE= $26,508 3.79%. My wife and I had excellent credit scores to get the rebate and what I thought to be an excellent rate. Best I could have done locally was 6.1%. Barkley posts their no-haggle price online.
We got there on a Sat morning and closed the deal without a hitch. There were no surprises. The tank was full, and we were on our merry way. They are located in Asheville, NC. It was worth the 500+ mile drive from the Memphis area, IMO.

Well it's actually a 2 part answer. If I get a Tundra I will be getting a vehicle that has less miles per gallon then what I get today, whether 4.6 or 5.7. Even though the 4.6 vs the 5.7 is only 2 miles per gallon more, since I drive it daily (approx 50 miles) it will indeed have a long term dollar impact. Also the 4.6 is approx $1500 less than the 5.7, yet another cost factor. I know it seems minor but I don't need the extra power and over long term will save a few dollars. I don't even really need to buy a truck, it's just one of those like to have, especially the crew cab for kids and dog.

If you bought a new Toyota since Feb or are thinking about it, a reporter wants to hear from you. Email predmunds.com by Wednesday, April 7, 2010.

Only problem is the V6 gets worse gas mileage than the 4.6. On the double cab, the V6 would save a wopping 145 bucks bought new. If a person does drive 50 miles a day as he described, then in a little over a year with gas at $2.75 a gallon, the 4.6 will start saving money over the V6. The V6 makes no sense at all, but the 4.6 sure does.

if you would have read my post, you'd realize your post was completely unnecessary.
