Amazing what being profitable does for your ability to bring out a product as broad of scope as a full-sized pickup in the domestic makers' vein. The new Tundra will be available with 3 engines (4.0l V-6, 4.7l V-8, and a new 5.7l V-8 of unspecified hp and torque - but expected to be the most powerful V-8 in any full-sized pickup). Towing capacity is stated to be up to 10000 lbs.
Inside is a stylish, functional, and otherwise typical Toyota car-like interior with a heavy layer of butch added to make it appeal to the buyers of competing full-sizers.
In case you were wondering how this new, bigger Tundra stacks up against its competition...here's how it looks to us (stats are currently only available for the Tundra 4x4 crew-cab - so that's what we used to put together this chart). We ignored the Dodge Ram Mega-Cab since that beast is a class of its own (we used the 4x4 quad-cab instead).
|Toyota Tundra||Nissan Titan||Ford F-150||Chevy Silverado||Dodge Ram|
|Width between wheelwells||50.0||-||50.0||50.0||51.0|
Unfortunately, it remains to be seen exactly how the interior room, hp, fuel economy, and other stats (like price) stack up against the competition.
