General Motors and Ford can breathe a sigh of relief -- the Toyota Tundra won't be hitting the market until February now, quite a bit later than the "late 2006" timeline originally promised by Toyota. The delay will no doubt mean more sales for the new pickup offerings by GM and Ford.

Toyota moved the launch to January supposedly to avoid the holiday craziness and is now talking early- to mid-February. Toyota engineering and manufacturing boss Gary Convis says the company is focusing on getting the quality right before putting the truck on the market; a good choice considering the quality problems plaguing Toyota's current Tundra pickup offering.
