Last week, I got my hands on a 2014 Lexus IS 350 F-Sport to review. While I had recently driven the IS 250, the performance differences between the 250 and the 350 F-SPORT are remarkable. Here is my “truck guy” review.
People say that nobody uses trucks like they should anymore. Who cares when you are having this much fun in the dirt! TundraHeadquarters reader Dean sent us a picture of his truck, his race results and a video. If you haven’t seen mud/dirt/sand flat drag racing, grab the popcorn, it is entertaining!
Tundraheadquarters.com just received word, from a credible source, that the 2015 Toyota Tundra will not offer a regular cab. While regular cab sales have been on the decline, new CAFE regulations and tiny profits from this cab style are helping to spur the end. Overall, this news isn’t unexpected.
One of the best parts of my job is driving new vehicles and learning about them. While I have a pretty good understanding on all the vehicles on market, the Lexus LX 570 wasn’t one of them. It is shocking how off-road capable it is, how nice the interior is and how expensive it is. Yet, it is hard to not be thoroughly impressed by this luxury SUV. Here is my review.
Putting together a comparison of curb weights for various trucks, one thing stood out. The Tundra is heavy, really heavy. Does the truck need to go on a serious diet? What kind of future does a “heavy” truck have with CAFE regulations and better fuel economy demands from consumers?
