    exactly. Why are people still saying they don’t know what powertrain is going in the 2022 tundra? We know it’s the same as the lc300. Fanboys can’t let it go though, because they were promised a “world beater”

    People are saying they don’t know because Toyota has not officially released any details on the coming powertrains. You/I/we can all assume it’s the ttv6 but until the official details are released then we just don't positivity know.

    I think that is true. Look at fuelly.com and you can see the real-world mpg's for any truck. V6 turbo's are great around town and satisfy the EPA, but when you get into boost they're as thirsty as a V8, more thirsty sometimes.

    We'll have to buy whatever is offered. A hybrid sounds good to me, we'll see what Toyota brings to the table.

    40 mpg!!! I am not opposed to getting a Ford if I could get 40 mpg. That must be mostly down hill

    TundraLaw,

    You're obviously very excited and happy about your new purchase and you should be. But being on a Tundra forum isn't exactly going to get the supportive response from a bunch of Toyota owners. You've owned Tundras in the past, and my previous 3 vehicles were Ford's. And I left Ford for a reason. I'm fairly confident that this was my last opportunity to buy a half ton with a V8 and I wanted the most reliable one I could get. Coming from a 302a which would in a 2021 maybe a 301a as they've changed is a massive upgrade. The screen has quadrupled, I've got leather, sunroof, TSS, and the sound of the V8 rumble. Love the back window.

    Ford makes a great truck and I'd even argue that they're the benchmark against which all other pickup trucks are measured against. But with my experience comes knowledge and history. Ford innovates and strives to be the leader, because they have to be, the F150 is their bread and butter, if it fails Ford will fail. I've also experienced they beta test a lot of their innovations on their customers and you're often left on your own after the warranty expires. They've even got their own phone line and customer retention system just for F series, it's that important. I wish you all the best with your new truck but hybrid this, electronic fold down shifter and fold flat seats isn't my jam. If I had to do it all over again I'd still pick the Old Tundra because that's my personality and where I want to be in the market.

    Obviously, it's not that there aren't great Toyota techs - there most certainly are great techs. The problem is you just don't know who is and who isn't, even if you did how do you know they will be working on your vehicle, and turnover tends to be high so who knows if they will be there next time? When I compare that to going to Bob's garage (a former Lexus master tech) where I KNOW who is going to be working on my vehicles and if there's a problem it will be made right...well why take the chance? Now there's always warranty work so there is that crapshoot but I have rarely needed warranty work on any vehicle so hasn't been a problem.

    I do fight against the idea of "factory certified techs" automatically being awesome. This marketing plot by the manufacturers works really well with people who know little about their vehicles and they truly believe going to the dealership automatically means they are getting the best possible service - I mean they are trained by the factory....right? My business partner will not let anyone who is not a Ford tech work on F150 even though it's long out of warranty and they seem to find an awful lot of things wrong on a 2016 with 78K miles....every time he goes in.

    Ford will put the ideas to market first, but did they truly come up with it first? Hard to know. When Toyota is going to test something for years on end while Ford will do it after a year or so they will almost always get beat to market. But with that makes consumers a bigger part of the testing program.

    I recently leased a German car, turned it back in after 3 years because I never owned a German car before. It was in the shop frequently, but the dealer always provided a good experience, and I will honestly say I thoroughly enjoyed that vehicle, even if it was somewhat "unreliable" compared to what you expect from Japanese vehicles. The driving experience was top-notch.
    I typically buy a different/new car every 3-5 years, so I totally appreciate having something nice and new, and I keep a truck in the driveway for "truck things".

    However, in my personal situation I see a truck as something different. I take them to the dump, tow heavy, camp out of it, expect them to be durable, prefer they don't have an issue whilst towing through the mountains, I allow my family to eat inside of it and make a mess, we get stains on the seats, I don't care if it's too big for the parking spot, someone bumps into it, sometimes the rear end sits in salt water whilst launching/recovering the boat, I intentionally push it too hard off-road, etc. All the things that ruin resale value for those who will upgrade regularly. I like to buy my truck cash and expect it to become a well-worn tool.

    I really like the way the new F-150's drive (we have 5.0 and 2.7EB) they seem so nice. I can see how owning one under warranty would be totally fine.

    You know what tune they're going to run on the Tundra? How about a couple easily swapped parts. Especially with boosted engines thats a huge factor. A Ford 3.5 can push out over 700 HP (https://tfltruck.com/2019/10/how-mu...-ecoboost-make-how-about-720-hp-at-the-crank/) with just a tune and small parts. Just a tune and it looks to be in the 75 HP range. So it's still possible the Tundra could have a good chunk more power than the LC300. Are they likely to go much higher, not likely since the Hybrid PU is the one they'll crank up. The 3.5TT is just going to be the base engine.

    I believe I am the same way I towed with an ecoboost before for example it got really only 6mpg and 7 on a good day while my Tundra gets 10-11 towing the same load. While unloaded the ecoboost obviously got more than my Tundra I would rather have higher MPGs while towing. For the most part I am wary of things like start stop and cylinder deactivations in trucks as a whole which is another reason I did like the Tundra. The next time I am going to end up getting a truck I am looking at a 6.6L Gas Chevy 2500 it gives me a lot more wiggle room for payload and overall if I do go that route it will handle my needs perfectly for my hauling and towing needs while not having cylinder deactivation and start stop. This is all depending on how much more payload the Next Gen Tundra gets though and if it does have a TTV6 and no V8 how much mpg it gets while towing. Either way it's going to be a few years before I do get a new truck.

    I think people really underestimate how many Ford f150 get bought just because it says Ford f150 and nothing else. I know guys with f150 and they don't even know what motor is in there.

    Don't get too caught up and believe those other brand pickups published City/Highway MPG, I bought a 2012 Ford Lariat twin Turbos 6 Cyl in 2012 after looking at the Tundra also who only had 17/13 which I think is the same today in 2021 on my new one.

    Anyway gas was high at the time $ 3.50-4.00 p/gal and wanted the better better gas mileage and went with the ford and total mistake, and I never got better than 17 mpg on the highway and 12 mpg in the city on the ford Lariat. It had all the bells and whistles and load with options and turned into a total piece of junk after 50K miles, and worst truck I ever owned.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Ford played with the computer systems to get those high MPG for certification, and then changed it back after, just like Volkswagen did, but didn't get caught like Volkswagon did. I think Toyota gives the real numbers for MPG and really regretted not buying it in 2012, all that extra stuff in Ford, GMC, and Dodge seems to bust more than the Toyota I think, and the best pickup I have ever owned was a Tacoma SR5 long bed 1997 I think and went 300K before I sold it.

    By functional you’re referring to the ability to catch leaves pine needles and other debris.

    I wanted a faster vehicle so I also bought a Chevy SS... because 4 door sedans with big V8’s are hilarious.
    My post wasn’t specifically in comparison to competitors at the time, it’s in the context of today’s 1/2 ton market.

    well, to be fair, the 70k ram is a 55k ram that they "discount" down to pretend they're giving you a TOTAL BARGAIN! when really, you're just buying the 55k truck at full value...

    Well, that’s what I get for posting about a GMC in a 2022 Tundra thread in a Tundra forum. Can’t get butt-hurt like those Ford guys!

    That's how all the domestics are. When I was shopping a few years ago I went to look at a gm and a salesman came out and first thing he said to me was "we can take 15k off the sticker right now".

    I might be the minority and don't prefer large screens. I don't need 12 inches, it's not the size that matters it's how it functions to satisfy me.
