The engine produces solid performance.
The towing ability is adequate. The
bigger V8s offered by other trucks
boast better towing, but most guys like
me won't ever come close. I'm sure my
Tundra will pull a camper with much
more ease than any V6, and that's good
enough. The many cool features impress

in all, my decision was based on
getting the most reliable 4-door full
size pickup out there, that could fit

toys and performance. Acceleration is
solid, but it would be fun to have a
little more power. To conclude, I'm
glad I waited.
The solid performance(could still be
more powerful), power rear window, cool
TDI ignition, tumble seats, optional
JBL 3 in 1, good interior space, and
other stuff all make a good vehicle for
my needs as a guy getting ready to
start a family.
Mileage is a concern, although I
suppose it's just part of owning a heavy
(5000 lb), 4 door truck. I knew owning
a truck would be bad(having always
owned four cylinder cars prior), but

17-18 on the highway for an average of
