Motor Trend names Toyota Tundra its 2008 truck of the year
(2007-12-18)
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - Motor Trend has named the full-size pickup Toyota
Tundra its 2008 truck of the year.
The magazine's editors say the Tundra is a match for Detroit
rivals the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado and Dodge Ram in
dimensions and performance. The Silverado won the award a year ago.
Motor Trend says judges were impressed by the Tundra's
performance, load carrying and towing capabilities.
It beat out the Silverado Heavy Duty, GMC Sierra Heavy Duty and
Ford F-Series Super Duty for the 2008 honor.
Motor Trend says propeller shaft problems which prompted
Toyota's recent announced recall of 15,600 Tundra pickups in the
U.S. didn't show up on vehicles tested by the magazine's judges.
