Detroit/Chicago Auto Show Question Suggestions

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

As some of you may already know, Esterdahl is going to the Detroit and Chicago Auto Shows. The plan is to bring you back in-depth photos and information about all the new trucks that we find (like the 2014 Toyota Tundra in Chicago). This brings up a question Tim had. What questions do our readers really want answered? If you have a question for Toyota, Ford, GM, Chrysler/Fiat or anyone/thing else, let Tim know in the comments below. He will try to answer as many questions as possible. Thanks!

    I’m okay for the most part but REAL GUAGES with numbers.

  3. Mickey says:

    What is their reason for not using numbers on all guages?

    Is Toyota going to make a stronger Tundra for real work & snowplowing? I would like a diesel option. Tundra (Helux) is available in Aruba with diesel. It seems to work fine with very good fuel economy.

    Engine changes? ie Direct injection?

    See if you can find out about GM’s 5.3L V8 hp/torque numbers for their 2014 new designed 1/2 ton truck that now has in a crew cab 1/2 ton a true 6 1/2′ bed length I am interested in that comes out this spring/summer. Also, what rear axle ratio it comes in, I hope for sure a 3.73 or more liking the 4.10 rear axle ratio instead since won’t buy if only a wimpy 3.42 rear axle ratio.

    I sure hope in 2014 toyota tundra comes out with a newly designed interior all around including better quality seats since mine are junk in my new 2012 tundra already. I also want to know if the crewcsb 2014 tundra will be out with a 6 1/2′ bed length like the DC has please. Thanks.

    My biggest wish/gripe with the Tundra is the lack of a eLocker. The the GM tucks have them. I know an Auburn LSD is available, but the problem with that is the TSC system is not aware of it. For example, the GM rear diff locks up at less than 25 MPH, but there after it doesn’t and the TSC does it’s thing. I think this is a great solution. I like the TSC system at speeds higher than 25 MPH, but not below where the Tundra depowers/applies the brakes.

    … but not below where the Tundra depowers/applies the brakes. Faking a LSD does help a little, but the reality is both tires applying power at the same time will do much better at moving the vehicle than just one.

    agree, GM’s locker made by Eton I think is the best and Toyota’s system sucks that is for sure. It works, but I really hate when the rear end doesn’t lock up and cuts power and applies brakes and then have to in my tundra put it in 4wd to get out of a slippery spot where my past GM trucks would get thru much easier in 2wd not having to use 4wd.

    Yes, GM’s new trucks both interior, exterior, and engines would be nice to review once they come out in the spring/early summer. Now they are offering a true 1/2 ton crewcab with more rear seat legroom and easier access doors supposedly with a slightly improved direct injected 5.3L offering hopefully more hp/torque with A TRUE 6 1/2′ BED LENGHT FINALLY which is what I demand and want for sure. Will see though on pricing and rebates not being much I bet since new model year.

    Will Toyota move toward 8 speed autos? Electric power steering? Direct injection engines?
