Engine and transmission: 381-hp, 5.7-liter V-8 with 6-speed manually-shiftable automatic with two-speed transfer case
Fuel economy: 14 mpg city, 18 highway, 15 combined (EPA estimates)
Toyota entered the big leagues this year, going head-to-head against full-sized Ford and GM trucks with its redesigned Toyota Tundra pick-up.
The Tundra offers a big 5.7-liter V8 engine and really massive 10,100 pound towing capacity. Those numbers are nothing to sneeze at, but they're not the biggest in the class. (Those bragging rights go to the redesigned 2007 GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado.) But the Tundra has Toyota's similarly big reputation for reliability.
A truck like this isn't something people want to take a chance with. If you've got a business to run, your truck had better be ready to go every day.
Ford and GM have garnered a lot of trust among their buyers, though. And GM's powertrain warranty is longer - in terms of miles, at least - than Toyota's.
Ford and GM's loyal buyers aren't going to defect easily. But the Tundra presents a serious challenge to the top two truck sellers in America.
