Wow! You really got better mileage with the Tundra? My 2010 5.7l Tundra got horrendous mileage. I was getting around 10 city and 15 highway, and I drive like a grandma. Did you have a 6cyl or the smaller V8?

Tundras sit too low in the front end for me. Price and MPGs also an issue. I will sick with Tacoma for now. One of these days I may need a full size truck again. Who knows by then maybe the Tacos will have more power. Power thing is crazy. When I bought my boat in 1985 I had a F150 300 6 that put out 140 hp. Upgraded to a V8 that put out a whopping 150. The I got a 87 with a 351 H.O.. It had a whopping 215 but put out a ton of torque. Even my 2001 F150 5.4 only had 260. Taco seems to have plenty of power compared to the old Fords.

Good point. Its easy to forget how impressive 236 HP is compared to what trucks had not so long ago. Especially in a midsize. I forgot how gutless the Ford 300 6 was-140 HP! I still miss my '89, though. Lots of good memories in that truck, but it was an absolute dinosaur compared to the modern Tacoma.

They'd have to get the MPGs up into the low 20s for me to consider another Tundra. The power was great, and I got used to the weird styling, but 10-15 MPG was just not acceptable. I have to wonder if the TRD OR had a different gear ratio that made the mileage so bad?

Agree - if they offer something like the current RockWarrior (color matched bumpers and blacked out chrome), then I'd be all over it. I just can't stand all the chrome. But obviously they're only showing the high up models with "limited,platinum,other-ungodly-rare-identifying-name.." I'm not a huge fan of the exterior, specifically the nose, I like the tail, and love the interior.

I'm cautiously waiting for the full specs on the 2014 Tundra. If they keep offering the regular cab SB TRD OR with the center console and bucket seats, I may have to order one. I had a 2010 Tundra with the same specs, and I've always sort of regretted trading it. I have limited garage space in an area of the country with major hail storms, so a Taco or a Tundra regular cab SB are my only options without risking parking my truck outside. I really don't need the double cab and would prefer a larger bed and more power (Tundra). The problem is that I absolutely love my Taco and would be hesitant to give up the gas mileage for another Tundra. I actually really like the look of the new Tundra, especially the interior. My bud at the local Toyota dealer told me he could get me back what I paid for my Taco TRD DC because they're so rare around here and easy to sell. I'm just disappointed that the new Tundra doesn't have a new engine with better MPGs. Looks only go so far, and if you look at the Tundra forums, the looks of the new one are NOT popular. The next few months will be interesting...I think a TRD supercharger on my current Taco may be fighting my wallet for a 2014 Tundra RCSB TRD!

^^^ sounds like mix reviews from each publication.

Pros.
-Interior
-Improve handling
-Exterior tweak to make it look less bubbly.

Cons.
-no improvement in power train
-that big ass chrome front.

Get rid of all the chrome, and I'm a fan.

What's up with the skewp hood? Is it functional or just for looks?

I think it would look better if the hood was flat. I mean who would want a fake skewp right. lol

chrome exterior is aiming it towards american buyers (the new silverados and f-150's have alot of bling too) and as for the interior its nice but not my taste just because its so close to the fords but probably because ford is the best selling truck and thats why they designed the similarity towards the f-150. all i know is im either gonna try and save for the 1794 edition or just stick with my 07 taco. i have also contemplated the trade in and as far as gas goes im getting around 16mpg and my dads 5.7 is averaging the same so i figure why not more power when punks rev at me right?

Anyone else think the front end resembles the Honda Ridgeline? They should have changed the name to Toyota Ridgra. I need to see one in person. That Barcelona Red one is growing on me.

Well, the RCSB option is officially gone for the '14 Tundra. I picked up one of the last 2013 RCSB TRD OR Tundras in the country. Loved my Taco, but couldn't resist the last chance to have such a unique truck.

Link?

There is going to be RC 2014 Tundra, but does SR (work grade) mean 8' long bed? From this link I can't deduct if they mean RCSB or RCLB.

I don't know if they're going to have an RCSB or not, but thanks for this link. I'm damn pleased to see their pricing hasn't increased. I'm sniffing out an SR5 DC 5.7L 4x4 and they're sitting around $34K. I can live with that.

Edit- I've been reading the full press release that article is based on and I just came across this:

"Tundra offers a palette of nine exterior colors including three new colors: Attitude Black Metallic; Sunset Bronze Mica; and Blue Ribbon Metallic. Popular carryover colors include Radiant Red, Super White, Silver Sky Metallic, Magnetic Gray Metallic, Black, and Barcelona Red."

They're offering two different shades of black and two shades of red, but no green at all? WTF?? Believe it or not, this may be enough to make me question buying one of these things. Maybe I should go looking for a nice 2012/13 instead. Damnit Toyota!!
