no im just saying if ford doesnt wake up soon and start pushing quality and power and such they will get knock of there realm . thats all im sayin.. probably not the new silverado because of so many people becoming dissapointed with it. if anything gm might see a decline in sales on the silverado.but the bottom line is ford better wake the F&%k up otherwise they are going to fall seriously behind

OK all you photoshop experts...........While I agree that the the huge chrome band and the Ford Fusion grill is not the most attractive concerning the Tundra....can someone color match that chrome and add a fine horizontal billet grill to the Tundra's snout??

The old Tundra had a Ivan Stewart edition where everything was color coded....looked pretty sharp.

I don't see Ford losing the top spot concerning single name plate.

What I see is the 200,000 Tundra sales have to come from somewhere.

I believe Ford sold aprox. 800,000 trucks last year with aprox. 500,000 being 150's.........I could see the Toy taking 50,000-75,000 sales from Ford.

thoses 3 trucks are garbage. Ford never fell asleep there gonan reamain #1 for many years to come. Tundra is damn ugly inside and out, its a barf truck if you ahd a drunk passenger hed barf twice as much, a 2004 F-150 is a better truck, my 1998 is a better truck.

Tundra came by the Siverado by a hair. its not as great as people crack it up to be. the next F-150 well leave it in the dust as far as im concerned the 2007 F-150 does the same.

where did i Read that the 2007 Silverado isint up to par with the current benchmark ford Frame. Fords frame is the bench mark.chevy doesint have a benchmark at all, although they clame they do. 2100 pounds of payload i2 950 less than 2004 Ford F-150. nobody can Touch a Ford truck. the 2009 F-150 well be so far ahead it well proborly be rated to tow 13,000 and well never be touched unless you can make 600 HP and follow strict emission laws.

Thats possible, but I see Nissan and Dodge taking the biggest hit myself. Just MHO.

^I agree.

The F-Series has the highest loyalty of ANY vehicle, with the Silverado 2nd.
A very important consideration in the truck market.

There is a Tundra edition that has the painted grille. It does improve the looks...somewhat.

DOHC...no need to photoshop, there is a 2007 Tundra model that has a painted grille.

And the Titan will take a big hit, even with the restyled, long bed 2008 models, that'll be out soon
