The whole appeal of the Tundra was that it was an "almost full-size" truck. Bigger than the micro pick-ups, but not some oversized monstrosity. Now it is just as big as the others. Hopefully the quality will be there, as there is little to distinguish it now from the others.

Oh well, at least the Tacoma got a bit bigger.

And +1 on it being now an inbred bastard child of a Titan and a Ram

Sick and tired of truck makers making trucks with shitty approach/departure angles and all kinds of fragile plastic crap hanging off at the front and rear.

Oh...and that blue is gh3y too.

I've been eagerly awaiting it, hoping that it would just be a larger version of the new Tacoma, much like the original Tundra was simply a larger version of the last generation Taco.

That thing is FUCKING UGLY.

It looks like they took a Dodge, hooked up a compressor to it, and inflated the damned thing like a balloon.

Ugly ugly ugly.

I don't give a shit how good it is, that thing is fucking ugly.

That might even be uglier than the Sig 556.

It will be successful for several reasons.

However, it's ugly as sin.

I don't think I would buy one, but you had to know it was coming, the size increase that is, considering the Tacoma got A LOT bigger.

Are those headlights slanted? I'm not trying to be funny here, they truly look slanted. You'd think they'd avoid the stereotype.

Let's face it, nobody really cares about gas prices. Even at $3 a gallon, gas is dirt cheap and Americans have plenty of money.

Trucks will continue to be hot sellers as long as the quality and utility are there.

At least they weren't dumb enough to put an AR collapsible stock on it though I hear it does take AR mags.

Notice there are no pics of the rear seats. The doors look like they hang over the back of the cab. The rear seats must be tiny and horribly uncomfortable.

What's with the half window on the back doors?

Standard cab = two doors
Extra Cab = two regular doors and two "jump seat" access doors
Crew Cab = 4 regular doors

This looks like the Extra Cab model.

I don't like the low front bumper and the overall appearance of a low stance.

Some of these 'trucks' look like they'd take $5k of damage running down a forest road.

I for one would like the manufacturers to start making stripped-down versions of their trucks with cloth seats, no carpeting/Rhino-liner interior w/ drain plugs, tube bumpers, etc.


I guess the dealerships can't make any money trying to sell you Scotchguarded carpet and undercoatings that way though.


Good thing it's got Bluetooth though. Don't know what I'd do without that.

I agree with you about the size. Ever since they announced it would be bigger I've been dissapointed. I really like the size of my current Tundra, and bigger would be bigger than I need.

But, at the same time, that was the main complaint the complainers had, was that is wasn't a fully full sized truck. Well, now it is. I think it looks great, although I don't like the size, but the interior alone really strikes me.




Awww ish da new toyote wucke to big for little Stumpe?

I have to say I thought it was ugly too. I like the older body style better, although I've never been a fan of the Tundra. I wish auto makers would quit trying to copy other manufacturers so much. We haven't had a truely original design since Dodge redesigned their pickup trucks in the early 90's.

Link Posted: 2/9/2006 11:31:10 AM EDT
A big reason why I bought my 05' Tacoma was because of the new body style and 245 hp engine. The dealer told me the Tundra was going to be revamped in a year. I was excited because I figure I would upgrade when it came out. I can't belive they took an already ugly truck and made it worse.
Link Posted: 2/9/2006 11:33:09 AM EDT
That's it, Toyota finally ruined everything in their product line. Killed the great cars the MR2, Supra, the fun car MR-S, trucks were the only thing worth a damn in their line up anymore. I bought a 2003 Tacoma and love the looks, styling. They used to sell superchargers via Toyota Racing Development for their vehicles, their latest catalogue doesnt show anything for current year models. Now the new Tacoma and the Tundra have been fuglicized.

SUV freaks killed the MR-2 and the Supra.
Sales were so low that Toyota couldn't profitably import these models any longer.
Thank God Mitsubishi came out with the Eclipse GSX.

As for the Chevy?
I prefer to deal with a business that will be around to honor the warranty.

And the new Tundra is fugly.
The Dodge Ram design is dated, why start copying it now?
