    Looks even worse in person (I saw it at the show in Detroit). They are calling it fullsize, but seems for Tacoma size to me.

    What is scary, according to an article in the Wall Street Journal the other day, Toyota and Nissan are moving in to the heavy duty pickup truck market by the end of the decade. The manufacturers claim they cannot pass on the $5000.00+ profit on a 3/4 and 1 ton pickup truck.

    So from the looks of the pictures it could just be an avalanche with a honda sticker on it. Are you saying that when you saw it in person, it was smaller than an avalanche? It did have two motorcycles in the back.

    Yup, sat in it. Definetly smaller then GM fullsize, and seemed smaller then even a Tundra. My friend and I agree it seemed more like a midsize.

    What is so innovative as an under bed storage locker ? Ford did that in the 70s.

    Yeah, that 3.5 puts out some serious "fullsize" torque.:confused:
