This truck has a lot of power. Its engine and transmission are class leaders. The interior is comfortable with a reasonably smooth ride and an extremely quiet interior. The interior reflects a high degree of quality. The fuel economy is not as good as advertised with my truck getting 12 ½ to 13 mpg in the city and about 18 mpg on the highway. The highway mileage is very respectable for a truck that weights about 5000 pounds but I wish the city numbers would come up a little. However, this is a 5.7 litter engine, and these numbers are is very respectable. When I tow my ATVs on a trailer, I get a reasonable 11 or 12 mpg. My truck is equipped with the long bed and I have to admit it is big with all kinds of room for what ever you want to haul. So far, the bed has severed me well but the plastic liner comes lose at the top and separates from the top piece from time to time.
There are two things about this truck that annoy me. The truck likes to shift down to first gear at speeds of less than 10 mph. This of course helps the truck to achieve maximum acceleration but it is a rough down shift in normal driving conditions that in my mind is not necessary. This truck has a lot of torque so down shifting at lower speeds is simply not necessary.
The other problem is a weak tailgate that is simply not strong enough to endure the day-to-day responsibilities of a normal truck. My truck tailgate crumpled on the top left and right sides when I loaded my ATV’s with a loading ramp. Toyota is aware of this problem and has already offered to repair my tailgate. However, I would prefer to wait until they come out with a stronger reinforced tailgate since I am sure that another tailgate would crumple again under the same conditions.
