Great engine. Strong. My tundra is awesome! Pulls hard, tows well. :shrugs: Gas mileage ain't great but then again I didn't buy a big v8 hoping for it either.
Who is the third??? Boosted, myself, ???Not much different than GD.
I can think of only 3 people here who have a V8 Tundra.
Quoted because it is all true.I have an 08 4x4 Tundra doublecab with the 5.7.
It is a truly awesome motor. I have a 24 foot car hauler with a flat front, and I have towed it with more than 4000 pounds in it and the truck never misses a beat. The power is amazing, the brakes are amazing, and the transmission is amazing. Fuel economy is decent when not towing - 15-18 depending on the situation but it does fall off sharply when towing as to be expected.
I absolutely love my Tundra. The comfort, power, handling, braking, off road capabilities - all of them meet or exceed my needs and expectations.
The crewmax is great, but I prefer the extra bed space, and I can fit 3 car seats in the back seat of the double cab just fine.
