Hey...what's with the negative rep. in the thread about the new GM trucks? All I did was describe how I was unimpressed with GM. Still confused over that one.



This new Tundra is too ugly to catch on. Just watch.

Competitivley priced for top of the line models. Time will tell once they are out for awhile to see how rugged they are in the real world. I can't see them not selling because they are ugly looking, everyone has their own opinions on looks.

I hope Toyota does raise the bar because it could only benefit us, the consumer. Then the "Big 3" as we know it will have to step up. Some more than others.

$100 bet...........payable through Pay Pal?????


My prediction is there will be no rebates, no incentives and you'll be lucky to buy a Tundra during the first six months for anything close to sticker price.

That Toyota is going to sell ugly or not. All it needs to fly off show room floors is the Toyota logo on the grill and steering wheel, nothing more. People see that logo and think quality and integrity.

Actually, I've been interested in his 1994 with 300 V6.

Pricing of the new Tundra is a bit too steep to really gain traction in overall sales. They might grab some of the personal "look at how cool I am" sales, but companies aren't going to lay out that much money for a low-end V6 work truck.

The 300 V6 has been addressed..............I'm thinking mom hasn't shown him how to edit his sig.


Toy is ramped up to build only 200,000 Tundras.......fleet sales is not even a concern IMHO.

Default is "I agree" you must select "disagree" to give someone negative rep points.
