Toyota Tundra Launch Worse Than Expected

Despite having the newest design, the most powerful engine, and being built by industry stalwart Toyota, the new Tundra vehicle launch has not lived up to expectations. While nearly every new Toyota product in the last five years has sold at a ridiculously fast clip when first launched, the new Tundra appears to be struggling, with nearly all dealers having multiple Tundras in stock.

Toyota Tundra Exhaust Modifications

The new Tundra is a hell of a truck — anyone who’s looked at one will tell you that. Toyota has made a truck that can haul, tow, and race with any half-ton on the road. However, Toyota fit this truck with a relatively quiet exhaust system. If you think your 381 hp 5.7L V8 ought to sound as fast as it is, then this article is for you (BTW, some exhaust dimensions are listed at the bottom of this post).

Tundra v. F150 Comparison 2007 Part III: Ride, Handling, and Comfort


This comparison is from 2007 and is out-dated. Check out our 2009 Tundra vs. F-150 comparison instead.

This is the third and final part of our comparison series Tundra v. F150. In this segment, we’re going compare the two trucks in terms of ride, handling, and comfort. As with the previous segments, we’re going to focus on the aspects that are most important to a typical, non-commercial truck user. Let’s get started.

Toyota Tundra cruising downtown Denver

As you know, I got together with a local dealer this last weekend and took some photos of the new Tundra for the website. I also managed to get some video. The clip is super short, and kind of crude. I’m looking into why the quality is so low, but I think it’s due to the .wmv format used (youtube’s upload guide suggested I submit in an mpeg4 format). I am looking into why the editing software I have does not offer mpeg4 output (I think I have to pay extra).

In any case, if you want to see a short clip of the truck cruising about downtown denver, see the embedded link below.

One Note: I plan to take more videos in the future of the truck. I’m told that there will be a lifted, decked-out version of the truck that I will be able to spend some time with. If you have any suggestions or ideas for videos you’d like to see please let me know.

Tundra v. F150 — Part II: Features and Pricing


This comparison is from 2007 and is out-dated. Check out our 2009 Tundra vs. F-150 comparison instead.

The second part of our Tundra v. F150 comparison, Features and Pricing, will evaluate the relative costs of the two vehicles and compare the features found on both. We will only be highlighting the features that are unique — common features won’t be evaluated. Also, we’ll only be concentrating on features that a non-commercial “common man” user will probably desire. Last, features that are similar will be compared if and when the difference between them is significant.
