2009 Toyota Tundra - SR5 5.7L (A6) 4x4 Double Cab
Pros: 381 screaming HP at your beckon call.
Cons: No keypad entry like the Ford has
Advice: For power, ride, room and resale, the TUNDRA beats them all.Traded a Sprot Trac for a F150 Crew Lariat then up to a new 09 Tundra SR5 DBL 4x4 (Black / Tan) Superior ride, handling, breaking and towing over the Ford. A full load or trailer with my 7800 lb boat almost disappear vs. the Ford Triton which struggled to break 50 mph up any hill. MPG is a full 2 mpg better than the Ford without load and 5 to 6 better fully loaded. I am 6'5 /250 and have more than ample space all around. My hair brushed the roof in the ford but the tundra has 3+ inches to spare. Feature for feature, the Toyota wins. Great build quality and attention to details that Ford misses as well
2008 Toyota Tundra - SR5 5.7L V8 (A6) 4x2 Double Cab
Pros: Quality ride
Cons: Color options
Advice: Test drive and you will buySmooth
2007 Toyota Tundra - SR5 4.7L (A5) 4x4 Crew Max
Cons: Gas Milage
Advice: Try not to raceThis is my 6th truck and it is by far the most satisfying truck I have ever owned. It has effortless thrust and is very roomy inside. During my test drive I tried the 4 wheel drive and burned all 4 tires. I will buy this vehicle again!
2007 Toyota Tundra - Limited 5.7L (A6) 4x4 Crew Max
Cons: See above
Advice: Dont buy it!!!2007 Model Crewmax 5.7 4x4 What a piece of junk, terrible in the snow, starting to rust underneath,chrome plated plastic is pitting,it seems to get dings like crazy since its body is like tin. The engine is a modified lexus motor that revs high, no power loaded down. Terrible gas mileage, about 11-12 mpg combined, not good for such a light truck. Paint is very light, least little pebble causes it to chip. Tight in the rear, no leg room. Don't buy this truck, they don't even give you a deal at purchase because they think Toyota doesn't need cash back to sell. Well after owning this one, I can tell you that this truck will fail again. Even the doors feel light, not truck like. Under the Maintenance Interval it says to “TIGHTEN THE CHASSIS MOUNT BOLTS” and “RE-TORQUE PROPELLER SHAFT BOLT” every 5,000 miles under towing conditions. And every 15,000 miles if you drive normal. This could indicate the 3 frame to make one (uni-body) are not as strong as advertied. At 30,000 you need to replace the SPARK PLUGS no matter if your towing or not. At 60,000 it recommends the “INSPECT THE ENGINE VALVE CLEARENCE” if you have been towing. Buy a F-150 of Ram

Pros: back window that goes down
Cons: Arm rest to small
Advice: May not be a good work truckthis is a great truck have had it for one year and have had no problems with it at all. My wife loves to drive it because it it handles like a SUV not a truck. Have driven the 2007 and 2008 and do not like them to big and not as nice as my 2006. I have the xsp which is a nice package with all the goodies. The 4.7 with the 6 speed trany
