Im betting the tundra is going to get harder lines, something more similar to the 4runners. With how 'different' the tundra body style is compared to the big three, they can really take it in whatever direction they want though.
My wife is going to be pissed if they redo the interior and add a diesel motor....

So agree on the crewmax 6 1/2' bed all of the big 3 have it or version of it and not tundra, no way can they do that to us!
As far as mpg, you must stomp the _hit out of the gas pedal to not achieve avg. hwy. miles (not in the bitterly cold winter months though) easily 16-17 mpg. My experience, but the stock 5.7L 4wd DC or crewmax not raised or bigger, more aggressive tires easily achieves for me 17-18 hwy. mpg and best of 20 if stay under 65 mph on longer trips. Once over say 70 mph and above, the gas mileage does suffer though. NO reason why the tundra cannot achieve instead of 18 rated to 20 hwy mpg but hoping for 21 or 22 hwy mpg avg.
No stomping. 33" Toyo's and a leveling kit certainly impact the mileage. The interstate speed limit in Washington state is 70, so yeah, I rarely average much more than 15mpg on the hiway. If I keep it under 65 like you say, it jumps up to 16-18. That doesnt happen very often. Towing mileage is absolutely awful however. Even limiting my speed it doesnt make alot of difference.

Well if you look at the spy photos that were posted last week, look closely at the pic of the grille/headlight. It looks just like this pic that was posted today. Looks like those spy photos were legit. Not much of a change coming except for the nose of the truck apparently.
