For the last 20 years or so, Toyota has bragged about their industry-leading resale values. Across the board, year after year, Toyota products are noted for their higher-than-average resale value. The new Tundra is no exception when it comes to high resale values. Both Kelly Blue Book and Edmunds.com found the Tundra to have the highest resale value in it’s class in their most recent studies. Recent data published by AutoBrag.com, however, seems to indicate that the Tundra’s resale value is slipping.
In addition to announcing the new 4.6 L V8 for the 2010 Tundra at the Chicago auto show, Toyota also debuted a new Platinum luxury package for the new Tundra.
The staged Toyota media photos do a nice job of making the Tundra look mean. Make sure to study the interior picture below – this Platinum package is beautiful.
A few weeks ago, we acquired some photos and video of the 2010 Toyota Tundra work truck package that was shown at the San Diego auto show. At the time, it appeared that the 2010 Tundra would be more of the same.

Here are the benefits of the new 4.6L Tundra motor:
Everyone knows there are a LOT of Toyota Tundra forums. TundraSolutions.com is the biggest and most famous, and TundraTalk.net is quickly becoming a favorite of many of our readers here at TundraHeadquarters.com.
Of course, TundraHeadquarters.com has a forum too called TundraNetwork.com. It’s actually a combination of a forum and a social network, so you can upload photos, videos, post your favorite links, blog, and more.
However, none of these forums offer brotherhood – at least not in the title.
The newest Tundra forum – International Brotherhood of Tundra Owners Headquarters (no relationship to this site).
As part of our coverage of the 2009 San Diego Auto Show, we grabbed some photos and video of the 2010 Toyota Tundra prototype that debuted there.
First, take note of slightly modified grill. We anticipate this change will likely carry over to all 2010 Tundra models. Next…
