There is a rumor circulating that the 2014 Toyota Tundra will make its debut at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show. And it looks like some design changes are in the works.
A bizarre news item was reported on Friday saying that the 50+ year ban on parking your truck in your driveway on in a city street overnight was lifted in Coral Gables, FL. That’s right you could have gotten a ticket for parking your truck in your driveway or on the street. Really!
Consumer Reports have released their 2012 Annual Auto Survey and once again Toyota dominates the rankings with both trucks finishing 1-2.. And once again the so-called “Domestic Brands” are struggling to catch up.
Responding to our story late last week about EcoBoost F150 shudder problems, a source at Ford has told us that a fix has been found and that current EcoBoost F150 owners will be given the opportunity to fix their trucks in early November.
- All new EcoBoost F150s manufactured after Sept. 18th,2012 have received a redesigned CAC (charged air cooler) that addresses the moisture build-up problem.
- Beginning early next month, Ford will issue a TSB that instructs dealers to replace the CAC in any EcoBoost F150 that’s suffering from this problem with the redesigned unit.
The redesigned CAC will not collect condensation in the same way that the current unit does, so this problem should be officially fixed very shortly.
Our source on this news is a Ford employee.
Quite often the SEMA show is full of wild (and weird) custom “themed” vehicles. Keeping with tradition, the “DraqQuoia” – Toyota Sequoia Dragster – will turn some heads!
