There sure were a lot of whiny chevy fanboys making comments. Probably because they didn't want to be out driving in their truck and seen by someone

What a crock!!

I call BS on that GM press release. Since when is Toyota afraid of GM? And what would you expect GM to say? Think about it...don't you think that Toyota would love to have the Tundra on the market now ?

The quality issues have cost Toyota 1000's of lost sales...worried about the new GM trucks is the last thing Toyota cares about.

Who's afraid of the new GM trucks? Not Ford, nor Dodge, or Nissan. What does anyone have to fear from the new GM trucks? Who cares about the new GM trucks? No one. But all are afraid of the Tundra..and with Toyota having huge amounts of cash to spend..it's gonna be a dog fight over who gets to be Numero Uno. The winner will be the company that steps up to the plate and spends....spends millions for marketing.

And which new truck will be the first to fall by the wayside when Ford and Toyota go head to head? Not GM or Dodge...so who's left?

No, it's not the Ridgeline..that's no truck. But you're on the right track......

Wrong buddy whenever a new truck comes out it worries the competition just keep telling yourself it doesn't Ford is redoing to F-150 to keep it # 1 because of the competition. Remember GM owns the truck market and have for some time but will they keep it who knows Toyota is finally figuring out how to make a competitive truck.

Yeah, they are all worried about Toyota. Just check this competition forum. Nobody is even mentioning new Silverado anymore, its all about Toyota.

Remember GM owns the truck market and have for some time
______


so selling vehicles for a loss (fleet sales) to make the numbers look good is being #1 ???? I think not. get real gm trucks are behind.

______



Not spout off with our own preduces. ESPECIALLY racial ones
___________

There is no racial comments there. There was a comment there, it was removed, when a Mod or admin ask you to do something, there IS A REASON. AdminThe FACT is that toyota is working at dominance in OUR country. How about a little national pride here. The profits go back to japan when you buy an American built toyota. japan has severe restrictions on our products going to there shores. The trade is not fair. As Americans we need to support AMERICAN interests first beyond our own selfish desires. American companies have gotten the hint. We are building better vehicles than ever before. American made toyota's aren't any better. Blame the unions. That is a big problem when gm has to pay a laid off worker a full years salery. That is bad business. But the point is that America can not become a nation of only service workers. We need to accell at manufacturing. Buying toyota products does not help our nation. Apathy will get us to third world status very quickly. It is time for national pride and make trade equal at the very least. Notice to all you japanese vehicle lovers... I did not bash the quality of japanese vehicles...so take your chop sticks and shove it. I am American and proud of it. I will not apologize for it. If you don't like it, LEAVE my country.
