You are in the Toyota Tundra
What is this discussion about?
Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Nissan Titan, Toyota Tundra, Truck
Article comments for Comparison Test: 2007 Half-Ton Pickup Trucks - For almost two weeks, we drove all three trucks in a variety of terrain including urban crush, freeways and gravel roads. We loaded and unloaded them, poked and prodded them, and even dyno-tested them. (more)

Off the 1/2 truck subject again. Oh well.
Vehicle brands, marques, divisions, groups, and subsidiaries from General Motors, Volkswagen Group, DiamlerChrysler, Ford, Fiat, and PACCAR move the world. So do vehicles from Isuzu, Honda, Suzuki, Sisu Auto, Scania, Caterpillar, Navistar International, Harley-Davidson, Aston Martin, and Volvo Group.
I work for a company that has a 1999 5.4L Ford E250 van with over 388,000 miles on the od. Many of the E250's and Dodge B250's of our fleet are in the 200,000 and 300,000 mile range. They don't suck up gas that bad at all. Thanks Ford and Dodge.
NASA, Colleges and Universities, K-12 school districts, airports, Homeland Security, and so much more in this country get business done with the dependable aid of American vehicles. Those kick ass General Motors Tow Tractors aboard Aircraft Carriers. Don't fool yourself idriveapontiacsunbird, American products like your Sunbird are quality oriented. All except Tundras, Camrys, and.......................................................................................................
somebody I know told me they were riding in a cab in Brooklyn that broke down on the way to the airport. She said the cab was a newer model Sienna. A Toyota Sienna taxi cab. Better catch a ride in a Astro, Caprice or Crown Vic!

Are you posting satire?

Hmmmm, I see that the 5.7 is breaking camshafts. Looks to me like "adjusting production" was at the expense of Quality. This doesn't bode well for the already struggling Tundra.

Yeah, my heart is breaking just like those camshafts.

"The all-new Tundra full-size pickup reported all-time best-ever sales of 17,727, an increase of 113.8 percent over the year-ago month."

I just saw a regular cab Tundra for the first time. That is one seriously ugly pickup. The crew cab Tundra will win no beauty contests, but is more balanced looking and not nearly so homely as the reg cab. Yikes! I predict few sales of those dogs.
I live here in the car capital of the world (So Cal), and I am seeing 7 or 8 new Silverados to each Tundra. I realize that's just an informal observation, but I commute 20 miles each way into downtown L.A. and see literally 1,000s of cars every day. The Tundra doesn't seem to be selling very well. On the other hand, there are tons of the older Tundras. Yes, yes, I know that the new Tundra hasn't been out very long, but with all the TV hype I would have expected to see many more by now.
BTW, I think sales of all full size trucks are going to take a hit due to gas prices. The best price right now for reg. unl. I can find is $3.20. You can buy a LOT of gas for your older pickup for $30,000+.

If you know how to mix, apply, and sand down bondo. If you hate your dog or your dirt bike. If you want your bales hay to break up. If you want you tools and equipment to scatter about the bed or the camper to slide off, well then you shall drive a Tundra.

Watch the above video some more, it seems the Silverado is driven faster than 28mph.
It appears the Tundra driver had to let off the gas a few times.
