    Default 3/4 Ton Tundra

    Hi All,
    Does anyone know when the new 3/4 ton Tundra will be out? It is listed at the Toyota site, but no price or delivery dates are given. Thanks, Jim

    Funny you should say Toyota lists a 3/4 ton on there site. Toyota does not use the old rating system of 1/2 ton 3/4 ton etc. They instead use real world weight ratings that really mean something like gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), gross combined weight rating (GCWR), payload and towing capacity.

    Even when a heavier duty Tundra is available, these ratings are the only way, as should be, to determine what the truck will be capable of.

    When trucks first became popular with the general masses, this "tonnage" rating system was a way of getting to the public how much they were capable of including hauling passengers and what's in the box, so a 1/2 ton truck could safely haul approximately 1000lbs, a 3/4 ton 1500 lbs and a 1 ton 2000lbs. Now a modern "1/2ton" is capable of much more than the 1/2 ton of old. For example a 2005 1/2 Chevrolet ext cab short box 2x4 has a payload of 1583lbs. That is actually a 3/4ton rating of old. The 2005 Tundra in the same configuration as the 1/2 ton Chevy has a payload rating of 1790lbs. This would equate to a 7/8ton in the old system.

    My whole point here is Toyota will probably never use the old rating system because they want you to know actual numbers. This way you truly know if it's right for your needs.


    Besides, the payload of my DC is 1835lbs. I like being able to say, "nope, it's more like a 7/8ths ton".

    Default 07 3/4 Ton

    Ditto on 2007. I went to the dealership where I bought my Tundra from and the sales manager told me in 2007. Now, I don't know if that means it is going to be a 07 or 08 model, but it is supposed to have a diesel option.

    Default 3/4 request

    I'll be ready for it in 07 or 08. I want mine with 4wd, a good LSD, manual tranny and lots of HP. Anyone else dreaming...?

    I'd like them to produce a very off-road capable truck like Dodge currently offers. Say front and rear electric lockers, an integrated winch, larger front and rear diffs and a range of gear ratios 3-91, 4.10, and 4.56. Give the thing a 3" lift from the factory, or at least redesign the control arms to afford better ball joint angles at lift, and bolt on some real skid plates made from some high tech kevlar, carbon fiber or plastic.
    It's nice to dream...

    I'm with ya!!!

    Toyota of old has been known for off-road capability, they need to get back to their roots.

    3/4 ton truck that can actually go on something other than pavement or dirt road out of the box would be sweet. I would pick one up straight away!!!

    How about a 60mpg engine. I had a guy that works at the Hickory Toyota dealer tell me they were testing one on a Tundra. Is it possible?

    Another rumor is that there is going to be a hybrid engine in the Tundra in the near future.

    You're probably right, but it is interesting what a salesperson will tell you. However, there have been 50mpg carbuerators rumored for years and that the oil companies bought all the patents up and hid them. Well, at least according to my father-in-law.
