    yep my wife’s expedition w/ 3.5eco boost says you can run regular or premium. I have run both and it runs fine on regular but there is a noticeable difference on premium with throttle response and smoothness . There are plenty of YouTube videos with people dynoing them on both and seeing 20+hp gains just by switching fuel.

    but 90% of the time we run regular due to cost. On trips I’ll run premium since there is about a 5mpg increase in efficiency as well at highway speeds . If it specifically called for premium only I probably wouldn’t have gotten it.

    Not nearly as much as most people on this site but some.
    Anyone out there considering getting a Maverick for a second vehicle? I'm debating between that or a 4 banger basic Tacoma as a daily driver in a few years and keeping the Tundra as a fun vehicle.

    Since Toyota doesn’t have a 3/4 ton trucks with a 3/4 ton type engines, IMO they need to have a 1/2 ton engine built like a 3/4 ton engine. Meaning a lot of forged parts, cast iron block, heavy duty oil/coolant cooling, transmission, etc in order to hold up to hauling loads day after day. In other words an extremely durable engine under extreme use. The other manufacturers make you go up to a 3/4 ton to get that durability. But, I guess it doesn’t matter at this point, because whatever direction they went is set in stone now.

    I wanted a faster vehicle so I also bought a Chevy SS... because 4 door sedans with big V8’s are hilarious.
    Toyota gas made it abundantly clear that they have no interest at this time in pursuing the 3/4 or 1 ton truck market.

    Ah, I see. No issues with my 2020 and they added Car Play for 2020-2021 so 2022+ will undoubtedly have it.

    I had an F250 and it lived in regen. I usually drive 5-8 mile trips. Good news is got what I paid for it 3 years earlier.

    don't need more power. need more space in the bed while keeping the crewmax. I'd happily take a ttv6 w hybrid, long bed and crewmax. from Toyo that's the perfect truck.

    Toyota Ecoboost will probably recommend premium fuel for severe duty which includes towing just like Ford does.

    The LS500 uses the same engine and it is recommended to use 91 octane or higher. It does make 7hp more but less torque at 442 lb. ft.

    wow, 1.5 yrs on battery... I just replaced my original last summer... on a 2011 I bought new! That battery was over 9 years old! And, it was still ok, but I did notice it was lagging a bit at times, and didn't want to get stranded if it died. I've never had a battery last so long, in any vehicle!

    So does the Lx570. Most Lexus engines require premium fuel compared to the Toyota equivalent, so I wouldn't suspect anything to change going forward.

    Lexus calling for premium doesnt mean you have to put premium. I have 2008 lx 570 for almost 7 years of nothing but regular and trouble free. newer vehicles timing adjusts by computer according to fuel, i care less about dropped HP and MAYBE 1 mpg loss.

    This may be true on the 3UR but on the higher compression motors in the IS, GS, and the LC500, Premium is the only way to go. You run into carbon build up issues if you use regular too much. And the car runs rather sluggishly with regular in it...

    Can't wait to see what they do with the actual 3rd gen. Meanwhile, I have the perfect truck for my needs. Maybe I'll have to keep telling myself that when they release it. Maybe not.

    my feelings as well, they aren't going to blow Fords powerboost numbers away. expectations are too high right now.

    agreed, and it won't beat the Powerboost numbers. they got screwed from claiming all this since they delayed the tundra and Ford came out with the powerboost.

    that doesn't mean the tundra is junk, but this world beater crap is stupid, its going to come out behind Ford, mark it down.

    it also won't have the generator built in either.

    I mean, for me, a Tundra with increased payload/mileage, with an 'Ecoboost' withOUT Ford issues? That alone has me excited.

    I would agree, but thats not world beating shit except in reliability which we all know it will be better in.

    if we aren't getting "world beating" performance , then just give me my damn 6.2 Iforce V8 , done..

    cool, I get that, if you want something like that, I get it.

    I dont really want a NON "world beating" maybe more reliable Toyota eco boost copy. thats dogshit IMO

    I would rather have a larger V8 and modern functionality with much higher quality materials and then the coils in the rear for a much better ride and lets leave it simple but good if we aren't going to actually compete or innovate.

    They beat the world with the last new Tundra design. So much so that it is still relevant 14 years later.

    I don't think every decision they make is gold (see all my posts regarding the ext trans cooler), but what makes you think they can't set the bar again this time?

    in 2007, yes they raised the bar with the 5.7 for a year or so.

    I think they would have set the bar if they hadn't delayed the tundra release, but now with the powerboost and lighting out, I just dont see it.

    say what you want about Ford, but they have done a damn good job with these last few models.

    I think Toyota is too conservative to come out with an on board generator or similar type level innovation and that powerboost output is going to be damn hard to beat.

    the one thing though, like Tim speculated on is a hybrid V8, I don't think that is correct, but what would that even look like, nobody else would have one.

    please no with the stupid 12" screen like that floating like that. just leave it in the dash like Ford and Ram. I dont like the functionality at all in that system, my dad has it in his platinum Highlander. Im afraid we are going to be stuck with that though. if so, I hope its in the dash somehow

    also, it looks like they still have all kinds of buttons low and behind the steering wheel, what is Toyotas fascination with putting shit where you cant see it?

    Screen may be 12" across but it's super narrow and, as a result, way smaller than the RAM.
