The 2008 Toyota Tundra was named Motor’s Trend Truck of the year winning in front if cars like Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado or Dodge RAM. After days of testing, Motor Trend comes to a conclusion: "The new Toyota Tundra is now ready to take on any American-made pickup truck — on all levels."
Tundra has always been a very disputed subject. First was about its poor security level compared to its competitors, then it was about its 5.7 liter V8 engine. But as we are used by now, the company put all this behind and continue doing what they know best: pleasing thier customers.
Toyota expanded the Tundra full-size pickup truck lineup for 2008, adding 13 new model variations and enhancing standard equipment levels to create a greater value. The 2008 Tundra now offers a choice of 44 model variations in three cab styles. Since its introduction in February 2007, Tundra’s share of the half-ton full-size pickup truck segment has more than doubled, going from eight to 17 percent.
