After the usual dealership hassels I
was off in something different than my
usual Ford. I own a business and for
tax purposes buy a new truck every year
or two. The last 10 years have been
Fords and after reluctantly test
driving the Tundra, I bought one. Man
this truck is tight and quick. The
exterior styling wasn't my favorite but
I figured I don't ride on the outside.
The interior seats fit you like a
glove, there is slim to none body roll,
and when it needs to scoot it will. The
05 Ford Supercrew [$37,000] had not
nearly the off the line punch of the
Toyota and the interior is a movie
theatre. Whereas the Tundra feels more
like an extension of the driver
Seat ergonomics. Silky tranny, smooth
ride, NO WIND NOISE! Back seats are
huge. JBL sound system seems refined.
Lots of plastic interior pieces could
use refining. OEM floor mats don't
match carpet very well. Tailgate could
use some styling. Wheels/Tires could be
beefier to better fill the wheel wells.
