I would have thought I was in the Toyota Sequoia I drove last week – same nice interior, same powerful V-8 – if not for the ride quality. It’s not brutal, it’s just very clearly a pickup truck. I took our departed Four Seasons Dodge Ram on several road trips, only once with the bed loaded. Not sure I’d want to do that in the Tundra.
The biggest challenge for the Tundra, as Evan notes, is that being as good as or even slightly better than the various Detroit competitors doesn’t seem to be enough to change the habits of satisfied and loyal buyers. Ironically, this is the very same challenge the domestics face in trying to topple the venerable Camry.
