    It looks nice just not my style. I think at the end of the day a truck is a truck and would prefer not to have all the extra luxury. If I was going to pull the trigger on an expensive luxurious truck I’m going for a Denali.

    clearly not marketed to most of us given the percentage of people on this board who want less chrome and not more. 22" wheels... o_O. Chrome 22" wheels... :facepalm:

    Well, aside from the people on this board, there must be a lot of people out there who really like chromed up bling. Toyota takes the RR/Maybach route of lots of chrome and two-tone == money. Those aren't marketed to me either... lol.

    This looks like it's for the guys that don't actually need a truck, but feel like they need a truck to look manly.

    Are vehicles soon going to be similar to the housing market where young adults have to go in together on shared purchase? I have a Platinum (that I bought for a really good price) and I cannot fathom spending double the amount on a vehicle. Of course despite the pandemic values, I still consider most non collector vehicles as depreciating liabilities.

    If there is any glimmer of hope for supply/demand and price correction, I'd actually say it's my kids generation. My boys and their friends, of course like nice cars but they all want super economical cars and their seems to be a resurgence for the 90's "type" of nostalgia. small 2 wheel drive trucks, civic's , Isuzu troopers, etc. It's an interesting time listening to their conversations. It must be making the rounds on TIK Tok or something, lol. It's almost a revolt of excess, which is surprisingly refreshing.

    That being said, It's not that I don't want one, I just don't have enough FU money to justify it.

    Inflation. Your money isn’t the same. I don’t know why people are shocked. My Tundra was purchased for 24k new in 2010. Now it would be 33k, same spec in a 2022. Inflation inflation inflation.

    I mean they printed hundreds of billions of dollars the past 2 years. No wonder Trucks are now 80k.

    Very true. We are 300 million people in a 9 billion person world. Africa is next, Chinese are old news. Africans are increasing in wealth rapidly.

    I think it's pretty sweet, although I felt like at this stage, they should just go with absurd chrome or polished alloy everywhere, and call it Canyonero instead of Capstone.

    So how does the top of the line, option-bloated hybrid truck with 22" wheels have basically the same payload capacity as an SR5 doublecab 2x4?

    Toyota is seriously sandbagging the payload numbers.

    Like i said, sandbagging. A Powerboost has a slightly higher GVWR too but its payload capacity is lower than a non-powerboost F150, as it should be since it weighs 500 lbs more.

    So either Toyota is using light duty components on the non-hybrids, or they are fudging the GVWR's to keep the payloads artificially low.

    is the tire size

    anyone found any tires of this size other than the OE Bridgestone Dueler?
    If I were to go 22 inches, it's pretty much a street truck and I'd love to see Michelin Pilot Sport level of performance tires available

    What just happened to braincells at Toyota? This is "CRAPSTONE"
    This looks like something that stays in a heat/ac garage and only gets talked about as a bragging point of stupidity.
    22" wheels with shrink-wrapped tires will ride like ass with the boxed frame and require a detail service to come to your mansion to spend 2 hours per wheel to clean and polish.
    White leather will require seat covers or a shower immediately before entering, to be driven by any working person or any family with kids or pets.
    LED lights inside... Ok that's future cool shit and it looks somewhat cool.
    More chrome to delete than any trim in history...$$$
    And of course, in typical Toyota fashion... only the cab/bed configuration that they give you. WTF

    I thought this was going to be the Platinum/1794/Pro offspring, not some douchey, over fancied, over marked-up, nothing really worth the $$ at all, and you can't even call it a truck anymore looks.
    Not for me thanks.
    I like that they actually tried to do "something" different but NOT this is.

    Absolutely no chance a $22-26K Corolla yields only $600 profit. Add a zero or close to that.

    I hope they fixed that awful sound system. My 2019 came with the JBL system and was awful. Just in case, plan on ripping that out and replacing with an upgraded speaker/amplifier system.

    They honestly should've had Mark Levinson come in and at least offered it as an upgrade. We love the ML in our 2020 RX350.

    Those 22 inch Bro wheels and the Panda interior.... A true pimp-mobile! Hopefully they did exterior neon lighting and the jeweled ring around the starter button.

    I wanted a faster vehicle so I also bought a Chevy SS... because 4 door sedans with big V8’s are hilarious.
    It's a pickup truck for Lexus customers because Toyota realizes that their customers also are likely to have a high dollar luxury pickup in the garage too and they want in on the action.

    Older buyers like chrome, they like the more conservative color palate. No one buying a Capstone wants it murdered out, or body color matched; they want it to look as luxurious as their Lexus and they associate chrome trim on the exterior as luxurious.

    Ok smart guy.

    How much does Toyota make on a Corolla?
    How much does Toyota make on a Tundra?

    Wanna bet Toyota makes at least 8x more profit on a Tundra than a Corolla?

    We bought a 2020 Corolla hatchback for 20,750. It's all LED lighting, drives itself, bigger infotainment with Android Auto, all soft touch materials inside, alloy wheels, BSM, kind of an underpowered Lexus.
    And it's made in Japan.
    Not much room for profit.

    I'm quite certain Toyota would rather sling Tundras than Corollas.

    The profit margin on the Camry and Corolla might surprise you. Quite profitable for Yota. Yota sales of Tundra's is peanuts compared to the Camry and Corolla.....huge profit margins... Camry's and Corolla's are made in mass quantities= $$$
