Superiority? Toyota is pulling no punches by presenting one of the most significant, best, and many qualified vehicles in the sector, along with spending billions in a brand-new cutting edge factory in the heart of truck country-San Antonio, Texas. Significance? With Toyota wanting to more than double its visibility in the fiercely contested half-ton industry, the Tundra stands for among the most highly anticipated brand-new lorry launches in several years-- automobile or truck. Value? The brand-new Tundra provides three various powertrains (one V-6 as well as 2 V-8s), with the 5.7-liter V-8 a state-of-the-art wonder as well as torque monster-- as well as is among the most effective engines in any half-ton setup. Toyota's platform has the whole section covered with 3 various bed sizes, three different wheelbases covering 5 different taxi as well as bed arrangements, integrated with three different trim packages (Tundra Grade, SR5, as well as Limited) in 4 × 4 and also 4 × 2 drivetrains-- 44 various vehicle tastes to interested customers, from job vehicle to luxury touring.

Using that kind of variety right out of eviction is impressive and also enthusiastic; as a matter of fact, some may say also ambitious. The recent launch of the brand-new Tundra has actually not lacked a couple of hiccups. Several months earlier, an early result of camshafts in the 5.7-liter V-8 were failing. Toyota informs us they traced down all the afflicted components to a certain batch and also have given that made the adjustments to the layout. No failings have surfaced since. A lot more lately, there have been some reports of transmission shudder under particular low-speed conditions, which dealers have mapped to a torque converter problem. Toyota claims these cases were separated as well as have actually likewise been dealt with. As well as ultimately, there's been chatter on the net concerning tailgate issues, which Toyota remains in the procedure of tracking down. Our hunch is a lot of these tales spread like wildfire, offered the lightning-rod impact this new truck is having with fanatics as well as the rate with which a Web product can travel. With all that said, let's take a much deeper take a look at just what's unique concerning our 2008 victor.

As pointed out in the intro to this special area, we ran our contenders through a collection of on- and also off-road training courses at a working Arizona proving-ground center, subjecting all our test units to a strenuous set of standards. It was in our work-duty screening that the Tundra initially began to capture our attention, with the 5.7-liter V-8 Restricted CrewMax Tundra running miles ahead of the competitors, with as well as without a loaded trailer in tow (note our performance analysis in the story and the Tundra's winning Efficiency Score). The Tundra verified itself a celebrity player in plain dress (Dual Taxicab Tundra Quality, 4.7 L V-8; $27K), along with in totally spruced up (CrewMax Limited, 5.7 L V-8; $47K). When dressed down, the front bench seating permits a column shifter as well as work-truck rush with a dual glovebox and concealed facility storage area under the facility seat. Our fully filled design had flexible natural leather captain's chairs and also a substantial facility console storage container, big sufficient to hold a couple of laptop computers and also function as a filing cabinet. The CrewMax design, with its prolonged guest cabin, supplies a gliding rear seat with drop-forward as well as slide-forward capacity.

Among the more crucial interior conveniences, cabin quiet (while driving on harsh roadways or at freeway rates) is most likely the Tundra's most outstanding high quality. If there's a quieter vehicle available, we have not driven it. Only two beefs with the inside: the facility stack's too much dimension as well as aesthetic split (looks like it's cut in two) and also the place of the navigation system nearly out of arm's reach for the chauffeur.

Is it the best truck? That depends on what you require, but by providing 44 various taste selections, Toyota anticipates to have exactly what you're looking for, stuffing durable truck capabilities right into a half-ton truck that's quiet and also solid. After some debate, most of our judges concur: The most deserving competitor for Motor Pattern's 2008 Vehicle of the Year title is the all-new Toyota Tundra.
