Humm, really like the interior even though it reminds me a lot of the current F150. I like the bed, the front end.....ummm, it will probably grow on me. The grill makes me think big for the sake of big.

I really hope there is some difference in the MPG. The engines carryover would be fine if there was some kind of decent improvment in MPG. What really makes me wonder is why didn't they at least stick the 6 speed in the V6, to be able to give some higher MPG claims. If there is no improvment I will be very disappointed and it would knock the tundra off my list of furure trucks most likley.

What are the chances of improved MPG by 2-3 MPG?

They don't even offer the V6 in texas currently, I wonder if that will change with the 2014?

I just woke up and saw the pics...some nicer touches, and the interior looks better, but the other guys still don't have much to worry about. Will break it down more later.

I think they just hit a inside-the-park homerun. I like the interior, I think its the best-looking. I like the "1794"s front - looks very menacing and Super Duty-like.

Toyota must have spent most of the budget on copying the interior of ford, as they didn't spend a penny on the power train. The big 3 must be laughing right now. Toyota must be content with their very small share of the truck market as I dont see how this did anything to improve it.

"inside the park homerun" is a good way to describe it. It should sell well to existing Toyota owners...

Wouldn't it had been cool if Toyota had dropped in the V10 from the LFA plus the cool gauges? But then I was just dreaming...Maybe they might come out with a hybrid version later on for better gas mileage and a little bit more power.

Congrats Toyota. You finally succeeded in making the ugliest front end to ever make production.

Holy crap.

A Ford forum I read jokingly referred to the 1794 high-end version as the 1941 version. They said Ford's response will be with Fatman and Littleboy versions.

I don't think a hybrid Tundra would sell well at all, because this isn't the car segment. Even GM's trucks were lousy. But a diesel Tundra is still what many people wish to see.

I don't know much about diesel but don't diesel trucks get kind of loud and doesn't burn as clean as gasoline while not being environmentally friendly? Isn't it why it is kind of hard to bring a diesel vehicle to the market?

Truck buyers are very different from car buyers. If you're using your rationale for buying a Camry or Accord for a truck, you'll have to throw it out . There are certain advantages for Diesel trucks, as many of them are used commercially, so having more MPG makes business sense.

To think of it, Toyota IS looking at making hybrid trucks, but it ain't going to happen for awhile. They partnered up with Ford to develop the technology for trucks, so we'll see what comes to fruition from it.

2014 Toyota Tundra Revealed

I have a 2011 SR5 with the 5.7L. The things I would like to see in the 2014 3rd gen is better MPG, Better towing capability, improved features and tech ( talking turn signal mirrors, and digital drivers display standard so i dont have to squint at the dash and figure out in my head how fast i am going), and at least an 8 speed transmission with true highway towing capability (are you listening Toyota Corporate???), and definity a bigger fuel tank. The only reason I say that is I get really disappointed when I can't even keep up with other trucks RV's and suv's that are towing on the highway.

2014 Toyota Tundra Revealed

To add on Truck owners that use their truck can care less what their truck looks like. It's a tool and it has to put in work and perform the job well.

Towing/Hauling capabilities in a a current model trucks are important. so important that If the truck can't do it, a Truck buyer will find a truck that can, and truly will, and anything else is a old tired "marketing gimmick", enough said.

BS. I use my truck and I care what it looks like. Yes, capability is more important, but all modern 1/2 tons are more than capable for what 1/2 tons are meant for.

It tows my 6K lb boat beautifully and it looks good too.
