    Nissan Titan down 48%. That makes Nissan look like they discontinued the Titan.

    Looks like the new Ram isn't doing so good either. It's a no brainer for Ford to delay the intro of the 2009 F150.

    The new Ram isn't out yet... production doesn't begin until September 8. This is all the current design for Dodge.

    Where can I find the monthly sales numbers for the Toyota Sequoia?
  • beat! I need a basic truck, traded a basic Hyundai Santa fe and got this! I hope Dodge stays in Business as this will last me the rest of my life!

    Are you 84 years old? At those prices Dodge will need government intervention or they will be out of business in a couple of years.

    Actually, that's about right. A base 1500 regular cab shortbed 4x2 has an MSRP of $22,1 and an invoice of $19,8. There's currently up to 7-large in rebates available and another $1400 in factory-to-dealer, so $11,5 sounds about right from invoice. It's all to clear the old 1500s off the lots before the redesigned 1500 hits the street in a few weeks.

    It's OT here in Pickups, but... :)

    Sequoia sales are up, but it's kind of a false increase as the model was changing to the new Tundra chassis from the old one a year ago.

    It's no wonder that Toyota closed a plant for retooling and shifted production on the Sequoia and Tundra. With sales of 3K per month the dealers must be loaded on those things.
  • The msrp was 23,050. so 11,525, what I paid was zactly half! And with the warranty and a GREAT local dealer 3 miles down the road, I could NOT pass!S far I love it and will be trying to drive for milage if it is possible. A long time tech friend says for now DO NOT LUG the engine. Forget 6th until 55 at least! Great forum, i enjoy helping and having help available!

    This was just a classic beating

    Titan 2,872 5,193 -44.7 29,900 50,959 -41.3
    Mark LT 383 795 -51.8 3,659 6,653 -45.0

    Chevy and GMC were helped big time by GM Employee pricing.

    If Ford doesn't get their act together, the F-Series could fall to
    second place for the first time in about 30 years.

    Toyota... right truck, 3 years too late.

    learn to spell and before you form an opinion, go find a tundra and put it "to work" on your farm and i guarantee you that you will be surprised. just because your a conservative farmer doesn't mean you HAVE to drive an american truck. the step that tundras had made in the past 4 years when it comes to size, power, and towing, has been bigger than fords step up in the past 10 years. be flexible and just because all the rednecks are so into american automobiles, doesn't mean you'll look weird driving a nice tundy around the farm.
  • Folks who work that tundra in them fields is bustin them ones quick! We need full size trucks for haulin them tobacco trains now... facts is facts! Them forien pumpkins be popin if put too that haul now! Never heard a single tell on them tundra ones workin any field... just folks workin that hi-way with them shiney ones. They lack haul for farmin and such. What say? Any folks here workin that tundra in them fields? Good luck on this one now!
  • I can't afford a new truck. Prices are way to high for any of them. I buy well used trucks and drive them up and down the road till they don't go anymore. I will continue to buy the 99 1/2 to 03 F350 SD 7.3 L till I can't find one anymore. As for nissan and Toyota I wouldn't buy one of those if I had the money and used a 1/2 ton. Sorry but I support my fellow American workers and American companies. I know Ford's sales aren't up like everyone elses but they also don't base thier company off of small little cheap cars. Thier company is built around trucks real trucks. The ones you see in farmers fields and on the road pulling trailers. If we as a country keep buying imports where will our kids work?

    I would have kept buying American trucks but i switched to the tundra because it's more reliable. Tundras can do anything a F-150, a silverado, or a ram can do, except with more horsepower and torque. Tundras can tow 10,000 pounds like its nothing, and you can drop 1,600 pounds of anything in the bed and the truck will still have the get up and go like it does if it were dry.

    maybe its just coincidence but everytime i take my camry in for service i see a tundra with the transmission apart. maybe i wouldnt notice it but a friend has a 3 year old tundra and the teansmssion been apart 2 times.
