We got the chance to see the new 2015 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro up close at the 2014 Denver Auto Show. One thing is for sure, these vehicles are getting a lot of attention.
I was recently at the 2014 Denver Auto show for the media days. Between eating and drinking too much, I learned a few things. Here is a recap.
Our latest trip through the Lexus IS lineup is the base 350 model. While this model lacks to the F SPORT performance package, it doesn’t disappoint. During the week I spent driving it, one thought kept going through my mind. Is the F SPORT package worth it?
Dealers LOVE to sell vehicle add-ons, like TRD performance upgrades, bedliners, etc. This is probably because new vehicle buyers love to purchase these add-ons. Dealership finance departments are often able to add the cost of accessories or new parts to the cost of a new truck, which means it’s often very easy to buy add-ons at the dealership. Dealers take care of adding all the gear you want, and you get a nicely customized truck for a monthly payment.
Is this practice of buying accessories at the dealership and financing them into the vehicle purchase price a good idea? Not really.
UPDATE: Lexus will no longer be sponsoring Joe Bacal and his team. Bacal says that they have had a great run and he is looking forward to the future. We will keep you updated.
We got an email last week about a friend of ours, who happens to be a Toyota test driver (helped work on Tundra pickups), that he had won his second Baja 1000. Here’s the story.
