Supremacy? Toyota is drawing no punches by presenting one of the biggest, toughest, and also the majority of qualified vehicles in the sector, as well as investing billions in a brand-new modern factory in the heart of vehicle country-San Antonio, Texas. Relevance? With Toyota looking to greater than double its existence in the fiercely objected to half-ton industry, the Tundra stands for one of the most extremely expected brand-new lorry launches in many years-- automobile or truck. Value? The new Tundra uses three various powertrains (one V-6 as well as two V-8s), with the 5.7-liter V-8 a modern marvel and torque monster-- and is amongst one of the most effective engines in any kind of half-ton setup. Toyota's system has the whole section covered with three various bed dimensions, three different wheelbases covering five various taxicab and also bed arrangements, integrated with three different trim packages (Tundra Quality, SR5, and also Limited) in 4 × 4 and 4 × 2 drivetrains-- 44 different vehicle flavors to interested purchasers, from job vehicle to high-end touring.

Providing that type of variety right from eviction goes over and ambitious; as a matter of fact, some might say too ambitious. The current launch of the brand-new Tundra has actually not lacked a couple of missteps. Numerous months earlier, a very early output of camshafts in the 5.7-liter V-8 were falling short. Toyota informs us they mapped down all the damaged components to a certain set and also have considering that made the improvements to the layout. No failures have actually surfaced given that. Much more lately, there have actually been some records of transmission shudder under particular low-speed conditions, which suppliers have traced to a torque converter issue. Toyota states these occurrences were separated and also have likewise been solved. And also ultimately, there's been chatter on the Internet concerning tailgate troubles, which Toyota remains in the process of finding. Our guess is a lot of these stories spread like wildfire, offered the lightning-rod impact this brand-new truck is having with enthusiasts and the rate with which an Internet product could travel. With all that claimed, allow's take a further consider what's special regarding our 2008 champion.

As pointed out in the intro to this special area, we ran our challengers with a series of on- as well as off-road training courses at a working Arizona proving-ground facility, subjecting all our test units to a rigorous collection of standards. It remained in our work-duty testing that the Tundra first started to catch our attention, with the 5.7-liter V-8 Limited CrewMax Tundra running miles ahead of the competition, with and without a loaded trailer in tow (note our performance analysis in the tale as well as the Tundra's winning Performance Rating). The Tundra showed itself a star player in plain gown (Dual Taxi Tundra Quality, 4.7 L V-8; $27K), in addition to in completely spruced up (CrewMax Limited, 5.7 L V-8; $47K). When dressed down, the front bench seating enables a column shifter and work-truck rush with a double glovebox as well as concealed facility storage space area under the center seat. Our totally loaded model had flexible leather captain's chairs and also a massive center console storage container, huge enough to hold a couple of laptop computers as well as function as a declaring cupboard. The CrewMax model, with its extended guest cabin, offers a moving back seat with drop-forward and also slide-forward ability.

One of the more vital interior comforts, cabin quiet (while driving on rough roads or at freeway speeds) is probably the Tundra's the majority of impressive high quality. If there's a quieter vehicle out there, we haven't driven it. Just two beefs with the inside: the facility stack's extreme dimension and aesthetic split (looks like it's cut in two) as well as the area of the navigation system nearly out of arm's grab the chauffeur.

Is it the best truck? That all depends upon what you require, however by offering 44 various taste choices, Toyota anticipates to have exactly what you're seeking, packing durable truck capacities right into a half-ton vehicle that's quiet and solid. After some dispute, the majority of our judges concur: The most deserving competitor for Electric motor Fad's 2008 Truck of the Year title is the all-new Toyota Tundra.
