Nissan has announced the pricing for their much anticipated half-ton Titan and, now the big question is how will their volume seller stack up to the Toyota Tundra – a truck many feel is going to lose market share to Nissan. Here is what we know.
The 2017 Toyota Tundra features a few small changes and a slight price bump for the model year, yet nothing really major is changing.
Note to the readers: you are going to see Toyota Tundra Chief Engineer Mike Sweers mentioned quite a bit in this article. Why? He is chief engineer and provides the direction for the truck as well as approves/turns down any ideas his team comes up with. In the past, some readers have said I refer to Sweers too much. Those readers don’t understand how much Sweers controls the direction of the Tundra. In order to understand the future of the Tundra, one must understand how Sweers thinks. I believe, after spending quite a bit of time with him, I have a fairly good idea. Again, a “fairly” good idea.
With the start of auto show “season” kicking off in LA this week, it is a good time to turn our attention to what Toyota has in store. This year, it is highly likely changes to the Toyota Tundra are coming at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show. What could those changes be? Here are my best guesses.
