2014 Toyota Tundra
 
The new revamped 2014 Toyota Tundra is making it's debut at the Chicago Auto show, 9 February. I know that many rumors are floating around the net, but would like opinions here. I will be replacing my 1997 T100 with the new Tundra.

I haven't read anything that I would consider reliable, but I'm hoping that they do something to address the abysmal fuel economy. It would be nice if Toyota joined other manufacturers and offered direct injection, etc.

I'm halfway looking for an excuse to buy a new truck, but there's nothing on the market now that will make me take the plunge.

This is like asking your buddies what they think of your girlfriend... after you've popped the question. Don't leave TwentyFourteen Tundra at the altar. She'll be heart broken. Pssst, I hear she's uglier than her younger sisters.

Fuel economy and a stick shift and I'd seriously consider one.

Yes, the Tundra gets dismal points for fuel economy, but am sure that it will be greatly improved with the new model. I didn't know that the Tundra doesn't offer the manual transmission. Rumors are of a possible 8 speed automatic.

They're bringing back the 22r in a TDI version.

My 2000 Tundra still cranks and runs. And it's long since been paid for. I like the new ones, would LOVE a new crew cab but do't have a spare $47,000 lying around.

Yes, those Toyota's are reliable. I bought my 1997 T100 new, and it now has 99000 miles, plowed snow for years, and never been in the repair shop, not even a burned out light. I believe that it is sold tomorrow, but we'll see.

I doubt that a new Tundra will be that costly for me, since I just want the ExtraCab, 4WD, middle of the line trim. I'm thinking less than $40,000.

God, I hope that's not accurate. That's like a current-gen Tundra having prison sex with a Venza. Hideous.

Tacoma...yes. Tundra...no way. Fuel economy sucks as does resale. A Silverado is a much better truck for the money. GM is my favorite full size truck. Drove a 99 Silverado for 10 years, wreck it 3x, put 160k miles on it n still got $6,000 for it. I currently have an 09 Tacoma crew cab 6' bed and love it.
