Does anyone have the inside scoop on possible changes to the Tundra for the upcoming 2009 model year?

My nearly brand new (4,700 miles) 2008 Pyrite Mica/Red Rock Tundra Double Cab 4x4 Limited was t-boned by some a-hole who ran a stop sign. Looks like it will be "totalled" by the insurance company.
My dillemma is whether to special order another 2008 model that will arrive in about 6-8 weeks or wait approx 2 months to place an order for a 2009 model, which may or may not have some changes and/or improvements, including the possible addition of a diesel engine option that I would be very interested in.
My dealer offered a discount of $4k off the MSRP plus incentives in effect at time of delivery on either the 2008 or the 2009.
Please post any rumors or news on any updates in store for the 2009 Tundra.

What about the Crewmax being built with a longer bed?

yes, but my feeling is that it will be a small production vehicle. At this time the southeast region is not planning on having any for dealer stock due to low demand.

So it will be possible to special order a 2009 Crewmax with the regular (6.5') bed? If so, how soon can I place an order for a 2009 model? I tend to think that this configuration will prove to be more popular than the southeast region thinks....

??????? I do not know. 08/04/08 is scheduled for the first day of production for 2009 Tundra but I cannot confirm or deny if it is in 09 production. Sorry, I didnt pay much attention during that part of the meeting.
If people have interest in the longbed, they can be in this region withing 10-14 days so it really isnt that big of deal of them not ordering any.

plan to buy a new Toyota Tundra 5.7 limited 6.5 box
trying to decide on the 2008 or wait for the 2009.
any changes expected in engine ? fuel mpg is a big factor now with
the price of gas going through the roof.
i would also like the moon roof can't get it in the 2008 double cab in
the 2008 model.
please post any comments and when information on the 2009 models will be released.

*based off of limited knowledge so take the following comments as "sketchy"*
There will be a new small V8 but I do not remember if they said it would be for 2009. I don't expect any changes for the 09 5.7 V8.
Since I have not heard of any major changes, I do not expect to see many or any at all. Prices usually do not change much but the dollar vs yen may make a nominal difference. If you want to wait for a 09, keep in mind that incentives *should* be slow during the first 2-3 months but no one can look into the future and be able to predict exactly what Toyota will do.
#10 of 16 Changes that should be made for the 2009 Toyota Tundra
Aug 09, 2008 (10:49 pm)
Here is what I think should be changed for the Tundra in 2009.
1) Crew-Max models should get an optional longbed package (6.5 ft bed)
2) Improve Fuel Economy (around 20 MPG)
3) Include a newer selection of rims
4) 4.7 Liter should get out about 300-315 hp/ 320-340 lb-ft torque
5) Have a standard 30 gallon fuel tank (currently has a standard 26.4 gallon tank)
6) Bump up the payload capacities to about 2200-2350 lbs lbs (currently at 1605 lbs-2065 lbs)
7) Include a new small diesel engine (maybe 4.4 L V8 270 hp/ 410 lb-ft torque)
This is what I think reply to this if you guys think of more to add thanks!
