Not too bad. I loved my 2001... I swear after 110,000miles it still has more power than my 2005 Tahoe!

Nice looking truck, Toyota builds high quality vehicles. But I'm a CHEVY man all the way!

Good looking truck but it's no F150

Not a bad looking truck overall but I hate the rear doors. They should have extened the glass back further. Those C pillars are huge and are going to leave nasty blind spots

I agree with you on that... they are quite bulky.

I love Toyota's we put 287,000 on a four runner and can only hope to do it again on wifes current 04. Pulling and stopping can't compare to f-250

Love Toyotas, put 165,000 miles on my 94 LandCruiser before I sold it a couple years ago. But, I think they are WAY to expensive for what you get. If all you care about it bulletproof reliability of the powertrain and a real solid work truck, they're great. But if you have to drive it every day, I think you can get a lot more in terms of all around performance and comfort for the money. Toyota skimps on everything other than the powertrain and they must make massive margins on their trucks. I went back to Chevy after 12 years away and don't know why I ever left.

You left because 12 years ago, Chevy's were piles. We had a '95 suburban that we put 3 transmissions into before the thing hit 100,000 miles! Chevy has come leaps and bounds however and now I do not question reliability or quality nearly as much.

Actually my 92 Silverado extended cab was a great truck. Major improvement over my 88. Hated to see it go, but I needed a 4 door SUV, so I bought the Land Cruiser. At the time the Tahoe wasn't out yet or I would have bought one of those instead.

I like the styling changes. Be interesting to see one up close. I only have good things to say about the '01 Tundra that I owned.

But I have already decided that I am going to gove up my H2 for the '08 F250 when it becomes available. Everything that I have wanted in a truck. Just still trying to decide whether I want to go diesel or gas.

The Toyotas are nice, I like the Nissan Titan better, but since I'm a Chevy man I'd have to go with the new Avalanche!!! That truck went from fugly to really sweet for '07! (It'll be my next truck)

Chevy power in the boat, so it's only fitting to have a Chevy pulling it too! :)

Does it have a diesel? If not....I am not interested:D

It is a pretty sweet looking truck though. IMHO much better than the Titan (which is just starting to grow on me)
