    Looks like they are trying to mirror the Raptor with the interior and LED stuff...with it pushing 37" tires, I wonder what the power output will be?

    Just a few, more to come
    Looks BA, but a little too over the top 'futuristic' imo. If they toned it down just a little I could see it making a great production package to go up with the Raptor and TRD Pro line, etc.

    I bet it's still as flimsy as every other Titan.

    Looks awesome to me, but it's still a Nissan. I'll stick with my Tundra.

    I'm a fan of the futuristic styling and off-road look but it is a Nissan. They have lots to improve on to make a competing truck with raptor and tundra pro.

    Also, doesn't "concept" = fantasy = Not really going to look like this, 95% of the time?

    The new Titan XD's have a 13.5" rear end. Oh, and diesel power plants to start with. Gas versions come later this year. I'd like to see Toyota do something different other than a new grille, head lights, and gas tank. A true "new" generation Tundra. (maybe optional lockers, engine choices to start.)

    Oh, and a manual tranny option on a new generation Tundra might get me thinkin............

    This is a totally re-engineered truck. The specs on this new "Titan" don't look too flimsy at all. You can even get a real locker. Detroit Auto Show is going on now. The new Titan has been cleaning up lately. Just won "Best of Texas" truck award. Toyota needs to wake up IMHO. Looks bad when Nissan looks more "with it". The new Tacoma is "with it". When will it be Tundras' turn???

    You may be right. The last time I was in a titan, literally everything about it felt flimsy. The rear locker wouldn't even engage. It was a 2013, brand new. So this new one would really have to have come a long way for me to feel like it was quality. You think 2017 will be the tundras turn? I'll just keep driving my 13, but man, if they really out do themselves it will be hard to resist.

    I like this new look wayyyyy better than the last little concept they released. Obviously cummins sounds nice but I think price point is going to make the Tundra come out on top everytime, especially over the 17 raptor

    The base Titan XD 2wd starts at 40.3K and sky rockets up from there. I never cared much for the first gen Titan at all. I'm expecting Toyota to something big soon with the Tundra too, just like they did in 07.

    Back in 07, the same thing was said about the new 07 full size Tundra which I have. (With zero issues). There were even negative comments on Tundra sites back then about the new Tundra. Back then the new Tundra was innovative. Largest rear end (10.5" with 4.30:1), largest rotors/calipers, highest towing capacity, 381 HP non- Hemi 5.7L engine. Innovation is not a new grille, head lights, better plastic, and slightly better stereo. I still remember the lack of excitement for the "new" 3rd Gen Tundra. Bleh. Innovation is choice of tranny's, choice of engines, choice of lockers, etc. Unless you are only into cosmetics , not so crappy factory stereo and think that makes it a new truck/generation, then fine. Check out Tundra HQ sites comments back in 07 : http://www.tundraheadquarters.com/index.php
