He'd better, because the 4.7L is a dog. I raced one with my F-150 and won...

Yes is has the 5.7L. Its got some serious balls, and sounds great. Cant wait to get some headers and new exhaust on it Eventually i WILL put the TRD supercharger on this puppy!

And i looked at and used a 2011 silverado at work, and ill be honest chevy cant shake a stick at these tundras! Everything from the fuel economy to the interior layout is sub par. The fact that they are teatering on bankruptcy really shows in their products with the exception to the vette.

The interior is nuts! so many compartments and storage room in this thing its nuts! Hell there is a full size hanging file compartment built into the center console! Plus way more. Oh and the back seat folds up... silverado doesnt...

Back before I sold my 79' Celica I was on the toyota message boards quite a bit and I remember hearing nothing but praise for the yota's 5.7. They are known to bring a basic 2wd truck deep into a 13 second quarter mile with just simple mods. I hear their transmissions are pretty stout units as well.

Yup. these drivetrains are supposed to be pretty bullet proof. lol excpet the rear diff has been known to wear out quickly if doing frequent towing. but here is an aftermarket set of gears and bearings that are 10x better than stock. If and when mine ever get to the point of needing replaced, i only upgrade with the aftermarket ones. And there was a recall on the the 07's with the 5.7 for some camshaft failures, but overall it was only like 20-30 trucks that had the problem out of a few thousand made and sold...
