Received a Hummer
We went to test drive a Crewmax Platinum... a Platinum.. Was told it's their "top end loaded model".. so yes, no running boards for someone like my dad is pathetic.. esp on a 50K vechicle. For him.. that would be another 500-600 out of pocket plus install. And if you go to a chevy/gm dealer and drive a denali or loaded model.. you would have running boards.. CMON MAN. And yes.. on a Crewmax the bed is shorter. by 1 FOOT.. some people actually use their truck beds and even an extra FOOT makes all the difference in the world. God knows I hate Fords, but his ford has just as much rear cab leg room as a crewmax with a bigger bed and more power with better gas mileage... again, I hate Fords so it should tell you something that I'm saying this. Not to mention we also test drove a new Titan.. Titan at 44K was loaded to the hilt with every option under the sun and a 5 year 110,000 mile bumper to bumper.. still a better deal than a Tundra.You sure you drove a Toyota? While you don't get the big incentives to feel like you're getting a great deal, like Chevy and Ford give. Their prices for new trucks are actually very good. They do definitely lack in technology on their trucks though. Not sure how interior design sucks, other than too much leg room in the crewmax? No running boards, really? I could go to a Chevy lot and test drive a truck with and without running boards, just like I could a Toyota... CMON MAN.
Before I bought my Tundra I actually test drove all of the 1/2 tons. Toyota was the best, followed very closely by ford, then dodge, then Chevy. The Chevy had no get up, back seat cushion came off the frame when I went to lift it up, and was 5k more than the Toyota, after a 10k rebate. (Equal trim level of course). Let's not forget resale value. All of the big 3 resale fall off the face of the earth as soon as you drive it off the lot, not Toyota.
I've got no issues pointing out legitimate problems with other vehicles, but let's be honest about it.

Problem is.. you have a Tundra.. so you will defend it because you liked it better and bought one. That's fine.. but they do lack technology.. a megacabs rear is much nicer, and a 1 foot shorter bed sucks. If it works for you great, but sitting in a platinum tundra felt like a downgrade over the Titan and Ford.. just being 100% honest here.. and I wasn't the only person who felt that way. The ONLY defense the Toyota sellsman had was "we know other trucks are more ahead of the curve, but we have a better resale" Seems to be the Toyota motto. My Sienna minivan was nicer than the Tundra...
