Hmmmm.. The Tundra can not handle the engine that is in the truck now, with the bed bounce and highway shaking. The truck will most likely fall apart with this kind of power..But Toyota needs something appealing since they can barley sell 10,000 a month..

The great news is that not only will this thing produce ridonkulous power, but it will be reliable as well.

Strap forced induction onto other motors and you'll likely hear detonation before the motor grenades after 20K miles.

Reliable crap, Toyotas are good until they start falling apart, and god forbid they break, because Toyota dealer service is a nightmare.

I wish they could supercharge all the other little ecoboxes clogging up the roads that can't seem to get out of their own way. Nothing worse than getting behind a small Toyota on the interstate.

The Tundra out performs domestics in every meaningful category. Toyota has made it's point and now will focus on small cars.

Don't be jealous that Buick ditched forced induction on its engines.

I just read Toyota is going to stop Tundra production for 3 months and stop building them in Indiana for good. Either they are not as great as they claim or the fuel prices are taking the toll on the mighty Toyota also.

Considering that the entire pickup truck market is dead, it's obviously the latter.

Listen, I am not a car nut, the Lucerne rides well, feels good, and looks good. I suggest you take one out for a road trip, you will be very pleased with it.

Once in a while I rent them. They are nice for cruising on the highway.

Exactly, and thats what they are designed for. Add in the price advantage and there is no reason to get an Avalon, Accord, Camry, or Maxima or any other import.

One of the reasons our economy is so bad because every ignorant little bitch buys one of these piece of shit imports that don't last as long gives you less proforance and is more expensive to maintain. Its a god damn doch engine in a tuck you dumbasses. If you tree huggers that only buy imports because you think they are better for our envoirnment. its really not because in japan they go about getting there materials in the cheapest way possible which is worse for our envoirnment. just give one of our auto makers a chance you will like they probaly more than the piece of shit you currently drive. stop pumping money into japans economy and start pumping it into OURS!!!

By purchasing and driving a Tundra you are supporting the local dealer, the final assembly plant in San Antonio, the powertrain facility in Alabama, and many other transplant suppliers. The truck has 80% domestic parts content.

Typical rebuttal: "But the profit goes to Japan!"

My response: the Detroit 3 lose money on every vehicle the sell. By not purchasing a domestic vehicle I am helping them avoid further losses.

Keep living off of social security you old codger. YOU are the reason for this country's demise, sitting back and consuming resources while not adding value. Whatever slave labor job you had back in the day didn't do a thing to secure the nation's future, so get back to work at Walmart and at least round up some shopping carts.

Traitors indeed!
You need to bone up on your history sonny.
Yes, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor---but what was the root cause of that action?
The US had previously placed a brutal trade embargo on Japan, completely cutting off their oil supply.(Japan got all of its oil from the US in those days)
So the Japanese responded by declaring war on the US.
Guess what!!
History repeats itself.
The US declared war on Iraq in 1990, and again in 2003----over oil (regardless of whatwas said about WMD!!)
So put things in proper perspective before making accusations against others for what your country has done.
Let's hope under your new president that the US will stop its bully tactics.
