    I have been looking through the Tundra links on the Toyota website and noticed a peculiar statement on the 2018's.. The average MPG has changed to an estimated 15/19 mpg. My question is what changes were made to the engine to prompt this change. To my knowledge, nothing has been updated. Anyone else hear anything?

    Probably the 4.6L engine.

    Just hope they don't change the transmission and software.

    Toyota totally screwed up the Tacoma's drivetrain.
