    Default Double Cab GVW

    Saw a new double cab a week or so ago and got a spec sheet that states the GVW is 6600 pounds. That's about 550 pounds over my 02 Access Cab. Tires and wheels are the same and axles apear to be the same also. Does anyone know if they actually have beefier components, or did Toyota up the spring rate and use the same Axles as previous years?

    6600 lbs? That's heavy for a pickup! Though it does break the 6500 lb barrier for small business tax relief on equipment purchases... may be one way they'll move them out the door! (It's worked for Ford and Hummer this last year here on the West coast).

    The 6600lbs. is Gross Vehicle weight (as in loaded) so is not heavy at all. My 02 has a GVW of 6040 so I just wondered where they got the extra 550lbs of GVW. Also, the magic number for for vehicle weight is 6001 pounds. Anything over 6000# qualifies for the extra 1st year and Sec 179 write offs.

    The DC uses the same i-Force V8 used in the Access Cabs. Is this engine beefy enough for the heavier vehicle? The Sequoia and some '04 4-Runners use the engine also. I think the engine application is great on my Access Cab, but would want more hp for anything heavier.
