    Right now my plan is to get one. Like some have said, it depends on what they offer. Also like some have said, my resolve to wait is wearing thin. I have a '16 Taco now in immaculate shape and book is excellent on them. It's not paid off but it's close. Like others have said, I'm looking for utd tech, more power and that sweet sweet cabin space of a crew max. Also better gas mileage. My taco is lifted a bit with bigger tires so mpg isn't really all that great. Those are my main wants in a new truck. All this v6 tt talk has me worried though. I have no experience with turbos or twin turbos. I would like to think that I could trust Toyota's reliability though. I have no issues getting a 6-cylinder with turbos if the reliability is there. I'm actually turned off by the V8 just because of the gas mileage otherwise I would probably own a tundra by now. My taco is just too small of a cabin for the family. If Toyota drops the ball on anything with the new tundra, I'm afraid I'll have to look elsewhere and I really don't want to.

    Your 2007 blew everyone else's doors off when it hit the market. It was so far ahead, it's actually still relevant. I love my brand-new 14-year-old dinosaur of a truck. It'll tow and haul everything I need it to. It's thirsty, sure, but I more than make up for that over the long run in the amount of repairs and dealer visits I don't have to worry about. Plus, the race I care about is to 300k miles. I'm almost guaranteed to get there with fewer headaches with this truck than with any other.

    The 2nd gen Tundra was a world beater. They're saying the coming 3rd gen will be as well. I bet it's going to be awesome. They are the most profitable automaker in the world. I don't think every decision they make is gold, but I bet the next Tundra will be fantastic. I kinda don't want to want one, though, if you know what I mean. I just got one!

    I wanted a faster vehicle so I also bought a Chevy SS... because 4 door sedans with big V8’s are hilarious.
    I had the SS in for a steering rack update a few years ago, at the nearest Chevrolet dealership I deal with for service on that car. The used car manager asks me every time that car goes in for an oil change about trading it in or selling it. It’s rare, I know what I have and it’s not for sale, but he still asks. Offers a loaner while the rack is getting whatever updated connection it needs according to their service bulletin. I told him no thanks since the wife drove the car up and I followed in the Tundra.

    So now he wants to take the Tundra in trade, because he needs inventory blah blah blah. Says “hey we can get you in a new Silverado that gets better mileage!”.

    What made him think a dude who owns a 2015 SS that I paid a gas guzzler tax on cares about mileage I do not know; but I humored him and asked how a new truck would save me money. Of course the reasoning of less fuel costs came up, and I asked him how a new truck with a payment would be so much cheaper in fuel that my overall costs would go down vs a truck that has been paid off since 2012? Newsflash bud, I don’t spend $700/month on fuel which would be a truck payment and that new truck will also still need fuel.

    Yeah it's the oil pump belt, why they designed it that way is beyond me, if you have a shop drop the transmission that's a pretty expensive maintenance item.

    I understand the diesels pull better and get better milage doing it, plus there all the rage now. Around here nothing but 3/4ton diesels riding around towing and hauling nothing. But for what they cost you have to be pulling a lot for it to make sense, my wife and me calculated the costs between a gasser and a diesel and I just couldn't make it work out for me and I'm pulling my camper once a month 4-6hrs away on average. The cost of these trucks is getting ridiculous, my buddy just spent 75k on his diesel 2500hd.

    I'm curious what Toyota has up there sleeve that hasn't already been done, for it to "blow you away" it would have to be something not currently out there.

    A new mouse trap in today’s technology world is difficult to imagine- yet I’m sure if anyone can think it up, the industry Giant Toyota...Certainly will.
    Just like in 2007 when the Tundra really blew up the market with the 5.7,they probably will do that again.

    Back in 99 they came out with a land cruiser that was far and away leaps and bounds past the competition and made a Suv design that I was driving not long ago (2005 model). It had a design that was relative to modern vehicles except the tech.
    What I’m saying is the new Tundra probably will also be a good bit ahead of the competition and prevail, so they don’t have to redesign for another decade

    Maybe “We don’t want to play the diesel game” and Now decided to do it with a hybrid addition.

    My dad actually bought a gmc with the diesel and a friend of his had done the same earlier. His friend’s started getting terrible mileage and then the engine blew. My dad’s has since started to get worse mileage as well so I personally wouldn’t get one. As far as diesels go, since many here in this forum would love one, why don’t we find a tundra with a wrecked engine and just replace it with a reliable diesel? I’m no mechanic and couldn’t do it myself but it’s just a thought.

    Sold my Cruiser, Daily drive my Short bed reg cab 2007 Tundra..... And Am awaiting the new Crewmax for observation. If a stinker, I’ll get a 2021-2020 v8.
    Don’t want any issues, so I’ll see how it turns out with reviews and I’m sure this forum will have the true opinions. If it continuously shifts looking for best mpg, I’ll pass on that. Yet I’m sure Toyota spent a large amount of time and money to have a Winner in the truck market... I don’t think it will be a stink

    I’ve been thinking…. I am moving in a few months so I’ve been purging all kinds of old stuff, unused stuff, etc. I have a small sports car that I can get a good price that I really like but i really don’t use it much. If I sold it I could convince my wife to a new truck after the move if I get the platinum model. Just a thought…. Get rid of the insurance cost of the sports car also.

    Sounds like a good plan- I myself was going to get a 21, yet I’m holding out to see what the new ones are like. I have faith that Toyota will hit the spot most everyone wants

    The news about the '22 Tundra sure sounds exciting. Unfortunately, I'm too distrusting of any auto Mfr. to be the first fat ass back in the water after Jaws ate my dog and neighbor's kid. Think I'll wait until 2023 or 2024 to upgrade. Hopefully, all the sharks will be cleared out by then...

    Maybe a Cummins turbo hybrid will be shoehorned in there and “dominate the market”

    My gut tells me that we will be disappointed. Personally I think they are sugar coating a simple hybrid drive chain. Which in my opinion is not a “world beater”

    I have my fingers crossed for a PHEV like Prime models of other Toyota vehicles.

    50’ish miles of EV, but still ICE for long range / towing / etc. Best of both worlds.

    That would be a world beater.

    I wanted a faster vehicle so I also bought a Chevy SS... because 4 door sedans with big V8’s are hilarious.
    I kind of hope not.

    That is a lot of unsprung weight to manage from a ride and handling perspective.

    Agreed.

    As long as it’s taken Toyota to develop this new truck, and as conservative and inflexible as they seem to be as an organization I suspect the current competition is more than they bargained for.

    That leaves their marketing guys and other execs in the position of maintaining interest and talking up the product. It’s their job to say things like we are reading about.

    They can’t come out and say:

    “Yeah the 2022 Tundra is going to be mid pack on everything, really nothing new or noteworthy because Ford beat us to market with all of it. Hey at least our build quality is good!”

    I mean they could do that, but they’d be fired immediately for doing it.

    I just don't see toyota doing anything that will blow us away. They're far too conservative for that. They know their claim to fame is reliability and any cutting edge tech is going to hurt that. It's either a simple hybrid that puts out an extra 75 or so hp to best the ford or a PHEV. Neither of which are going to blow anything away.

    Blowing us away is a PHEV with a solid state battery that'll do 100 miles or more on battery only or a ducted fuel injection diesel that has no def or dpf to meet emissions. Either one of those would be a world beater. But at this point from the information we have my hopes are set low. Give me good looking truck, 6 or 6.5' bed on a crewmax, comfortable seats, and is nothing like the turd tacoma powertrain while driving and I'll be happy.

    That would work for me.

    "So we're not going to beat Ford and Ram in whizz bang features. However, we have added a 10spd transmission and adapted one of our proven hybrid drivelines. We've also added 500lbs to the payload. There have been some tech updates but we have decided to spend our focus on bringing the consumer the most important thing; reliability."

    Sure that would work for a lot of guys in this forum, because the vast majority of you bought an outdated truck precisely because all the bugs were worked out.

    Unfortunately for Toyota that has not proven to be a successful strategy in growing the Tundra in market share of the very very lucrative North American market for 1/2 ton pickup trucks. Clearly based on sales numbers for every one dude who values reliability above all else in a truck and buys a Tundra, there are like 12 other dudes who value other things more and buy accordingly.

    Seems to me that providing and proving years of reliability / functionality could be the exact long term strategy that Toyota is employing to gain customers vs. short-term, shiny new objects with low reliability from the big 3?...seems to have worked well for the Camry.

    The bad part about a hybrid - for ME - is the concern over fuel going bad before I use it. My daily is only 6 miles each way. Major supply stores for home projects are only a couple miles further. Currently, I can go almost a month between refueling with the 38 gal tank if I don't make a long distance run somewhere on the weekends. If I run on elec. alone for those local trips, I'm gonna have nothing but sludge in the tank for that occasional camping/road trip.

    I wanted a faster vehicle so I also bought a Chevy SS... because 4 door sedans with big V8’s are hilarious.
    I keep reading about these claims of "low reliability" in regards to domestic vehicles, yet strangely virtually never see any vehicles of any description broken down on the side of the road anymore aside from cars or trucks that have had a run in with large wildlife. Later today I will go for a ride in a domestic large SUV that will probably have between 250K-400K on the odometer and it's still running. The 3rd party contractor the RR I work for uses to transport train crews to the train uses nothing but GM Suburban variants and Ford Expeditions, they don't take care of them very well, the drivers idle them all day when not moving, drive them on rough ass RR right of way, etc. They still work.

    As for the Camry, who cares about the Camry? Who cares in this country about midsize family sedans? Consumers sure don't judging by sales numbers. The truck and SUV market is where the money is at, and for the past 10 years Toyota hasn't been competitive in a fair chunk of that market.
