Not likely, the big three still have better big trucks than the Tundra/Titan.

Hopefully this isn't common knowledge or old news at this point, but I work at a Toyota dealership. We just recently received a shipment of brochures with the 2007 lineup, and it includes a section on the Tundra, saying the 5.7-liter V-8 is rated at 381 hp @ 5600 rpm and 401 lb.-ft @3600 rpm.

But more importantly, there were six or seven Tundras AT THE DEALERSHIP from last night up until early this afternoon (not for public display, but in areas easily accessible by employees or meandering guests). They are intended to be regional demo trucks that were just temporarily stored at the dealership. Supposedly they were transported to some corporate offices elsewhere afterward.

Good lord!

These trucks are just getting insanely huge.
Do you really need something that big?
God, when are those new EPA mileage standards for trucks going to kick in to force the automakers to bring the size of these behemoths down a little. Geez.

What I find really amazing is if you look at a FULL-SIZE pickup from the 80's or even early 90's, they would almost be considered MID-size today.

Yes but they really don't sell many of those. F250s and F350s though there is still no comparable Toyota.

I work for Toyota too. The 381hp is on a VERY conservative tune. Reflash it and you can easily have over 450hp. I can't wait until someone gets a regular cab Tundra with the 5.7 V8. It'll be a beast! Also, as of right now there are no plans to release the CrewMax with a long bed.

I'm not in the market for a 2007 truck so I have to claim ignorance on the latest models, but in 2004-2005 the domestic's full size trucks had equal or better reliability (at least Chevy/GM did in Consumer Reports), better power and features, higher towing/hauling capacity, better gas mileage, flex-fuel capability, diesel engines available, more configurations, etc., etc., and to top it off they were thousands cheaper than a comparable import Tundra or Titan.

In all fairness, 04-05 was a long time ago in the automotive world. Toyota completely designed and built the new Tundra to take sales from GM/Ford/Dodge. This is a whole different animal from the near compact sized first generation Tundra.
