Talking Fact: Toyota Tundra Commercials Are Full Of ****

Stinky, nasty ****.


Quote:
This is in regards to the new Toyota Tundra which is attempting to grab a share of the large truck market away from the big 3....(GM, Ford, Dodge)
This in particular is speaking about the Tundra commericial that shows a Tundra going up/down a big hill...

This was forwarded to me from a GM rep:

The Voice Over at the beginning of the spot says...."It's tough pushing 10,000 lbs up a steep grade". Myth: Toyota would like the audience to believe the trailer is 10,000 lbs. Fact: It's a 5,000 lb truck pulling a 5,000 lb trailer. A little slight of hand? You bet.

Then, on the way down the grade, the camera zooms in on the brakes as the vehicles comes to a screeching halt just prior to the end of ramp. Next time you see the ad....look for the 'mice type'. It indicates the trailer is equipped with electric brakes. Fact....the electric brakes stop the trailer -- not the truck. A little slight of hand? You bet.

And why does Toyota have bigger brake pads? They need them....their truck is heavier. Stopping distance between our truck and theirs is virtually identical. And why does Toyota have a 6 speed transmission? To improve their fuel economy....which is still 2 mpg less than ours.

And don't forget....their big V8 has one axle ratio -- a 4.3. xSuck fuel much? Our trucks offer several axle options to optimize towing and fuel economy. Bottom line: OUR TRUCKS ARE BETTER! Spread the word.......we can all make a difference.


BTW I stole this of another forum.

yup, read that earlier.

not to mention no Tundras were used in the making of the commercial but the one doing the acting, which is basically what it was doing, acting like a real truck.

Yeah the braking test looks staged. I bet the other trucks aren't using trailor brakes.
