And some Interior pics








No more 4.7L DOHC i-FORCE guys, Toyota is stepping up into the big game.




Here's what I know so far...

5.7L DOHC 32v V8 - Power unknown as of yet.
6spd auto tranny
10,000lb towing capacity

What does all this equal...well in my view...

American 1/2 tons getting PWN3D.

Not bad at all. The front is a little meh but hey that can always be changed if you really wanted the truck itself.

No, the Tundra will still only be 1/2 ton.

Base engine will probably be the 245hp 4.0L DOHC V6 from the Tacoma.

They may still offer the 4.7L V8 in mid-line models (or for a cheap upgrade from the V6), but I doubt it.

Most recently redesigned pickups have big grills.

Look at the Ram or F series, for instance.

But the headlights don't look too small on them.

I think they all look about the same as far as proportions go.

Guess we'll just have to agree to disagree.

Update!

Found some more in depth info on it...Still no power rating for the new 5.7L.

>> A bigger truck. The Tundra's wheelbase has been stretched 10 inches to 138.3 inches on the standard cab. The wheelbase on the Double Cab is 150.5 inches. The overall length grows about the same amount, ranging from about 228 to 240 inches.

>> A new 5.7-liter V-8 joins the engine lineup. That engine should make more than 300 hp and be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. It will join the current engines - a 4.0-liter V-6 that was rated at 236 hp for 2006 and a 4.7-liter V-8 that was rated at 271 hp.

>> Towing capacity rated at more than 10,000 pounds.

>> Three trim levels - base, SR5 and Limited - and three cab configurations, including the Double Cab.

>> The options list will include a rearview backup camera and Bluetooth connectivity for cellular telephones.

Toyota will build the redesigned Tundra at plants in Princeton, Ind., and San Antonio.
