    So two different types of wheels (front/rear) so does it carry two different spares?

    When I saw it, it didn't have a spare mounted under the bed. It was really just a show truck put together by toyota for shows. We have a booth at the would ag expo every year and I was there when they unloaded the truck. They just parked it and it sat there all week and then it went right back on a truck to leave.

    Well I will agree it is under powered, but "crap" I will not. They are built very well and we have had zero engine issues other than the first 3 months they came out, there were some phantom codes that would show up. Now do I want one, no. But I would take one over any Chrysler, Chevy, Ford, Ram any day.

    I was just relaying the message. I have zero first hand experience with that diesel engine. I just know Chrysler and Ram aren't known for reliability so, when they pass on an engine it is saying something.

    does anyone else think some of these numbers do not make sense??

    440hp/580 tq out of an NA gas is great but on the high end of what I think is realistic (tq wise at lease). Not that it has the weights, but 7.5 to 60 seems awful slow for that power rating. What i also do not understand is that the hybrid next to it costs less and does not produce any more power.

    That schedule just doesn't seem to be consistent enough to make a choice (IMO of course).

    I'm just surprised all six wheels are not the same. The fronts are obviously not capable of being mounted dually style as in the rear.

    You don't need spares or to be able to rotate the tires when all the truck has to do is back off a trailer then drive back on it a week later

    This was a SEMA concept truck built in 2007 or 2008. It does have a diesel, but if I remember correctly its an Isuzu straight 6.

    It's going to be a hybrid with diesel like numbers. Personally I think it will be better than a diesel.

    A hybrid truck would be great... ...until you have to climb a long, steep grade and the battery runs out of juice. Then you're running on just the inadequately small gas engine power while VW Microbuses shout abuse at you as they pass.

    I'll believe that a diesel Tundra exists when I see it...

    From my understanding it is going to be a twin turbo setup like the Ecoboost which is more than capable of pulling up a steep hill. The hybrid system will allow it to stay out of the boost when accelerating which is when turbos suck the most gas. But the engine should be functional on its own.
