    I wanted a faster vehicle so I also bought a Chevy SS... because 4 door sedans with big V8’s are hilarious.
    Disappointing and 3rd Gen Tundra seem to be synonymous.

    Ah. I mistook your post for one from the gentleman hoping for 28-30 mpg.

    Wish it weren’t the case, but so far I’m not as excited to buy one as I had hoped. So far I’m seeing average performance for an above average price, and that doesn’t equal good value.

    Here is Car and Driver's take on hybrid MPGs. Not instrumented tests but based on driving both hybrid and nonhybrid versions and observing the display. This is also what I expect based on Toyota's supposed design goal to provide mostly a power boost.

    "We'd guess the i-Force MAX picks up 1 or 2 mpg in the city but doubt it betters the 22-mpg highway for the nonhybrid 4x4."

    According to a salesperson in TN with “a very informed insider for Toyota” it’s supposed to be 30-32 mpg and have a $4000 price difference.

    I’m doubting that big time, but I’d be glad if it’s true.

    No way. Simple physics... and a very small battery pack.

    Hybrid details are apparently coming out this week, my sales guy has a training course on the 18th for it. I’ll try and update the same day if I can get a hold of him.

    Back when I heard Toyota was making a hybrid Tundra I thought that would be the one for me. And looking at the frame off video it looks like a very clean and robust implementation. It should be, they have a LOT of experience with this. But I was assuming they were going to focus on better MPG, not a power boost... which might be great if you were doing a lot of towing and such. But that's not my use profile so the cost won't be worth it and the non-hybrid will probably make the most sense for me. That is if I ever decide to get one. Not gonna be an early adopter and will wait for the wastegate-gate to be resolved at a minimum.

    It would be cool if they could make the hybrid system operation parameters tunable or selectable to focus on a specific owner's needs and maybe offer a larger plug in battery option in a future update.

    I’ll go out on a limb and predict the hybrid only gains 1 mpg over the regular truck. Unfortunately the regular Tundra isn’t putting up very good fuel economy numbers so far.

    At this point the run down looks like the iForceMax is going to:

    1.) Cost a lot more than the already expensive iForce equipped Tundra.

    2.) Produce mid pack acceleration among top level optional engines in class up to around 80 MPH where Car and Driver logged it falling on its face.

    3.) Probably not return significantly better fuel economy than the regular iForce, which is to say mediocre at this point.

    I was really excited about this engine option but the more I see, read, and hear the less I am inclined to buy one or any Toyota truck for that matter.

    Based on what I know so far, I believe Car and Driver will be spot on. The hybrid should add 1 or 2 MPG in city driving due to regen during stop and go. But on a steady state highway test cycle that mimics a flat drive on the highway the battery is just too small to add much help for very long... and there is far less opportunity for regen... in fact on a flat highway drive there is NO regen. So all you have is the ICE moving the regular truck plus the extra weight of the battery and motor/generator. So, I expect it will be as C/D posits, no improvement on the highway.

    until you slow down, go down a hill, etc, the. It will Regen. I’m willing to be city goes up 3-6 and highway is 2-5 better (dreaming for 4-5 better)

    I wish you were right but you ARE dreaming. Flat highway cycle or drive means essentially no regen. Flat means no hills to go down. Stopping for a burger or pit stop every couple of hours won't recapture anything significant.

    Come on... link it up here. Might as well get some preemptive shit posting going!

    This is not like other hybrids; this one is very mild. Sweers is the chief engineer for the Tundra, and he said right in the video that the hybrid was for power not mpg improvement.

    Luckily I live and drive in hilly and mountainous areas so I’ll have plenty of Regen opportunities!

    Those other models were designed more to enhance MPG.... smaller engines in the first place, lower level of hybrid power boost. So I don't believe this experience will correlate closely. I have driven Prius on business trips and they were really impressive for MPG. And decently responsive.

    But on highway drives even with hills you usually will need to be on the throttle to some extent to maintain 70 MPH or more. Especially in a Tundra that is such a blunt instrument. So no regen there either. Unless the hills are VERY steep. City hills are a whole other thing and they will help. But I don't see it being more than a couple MPG due to the extra weight.

    Not comparing, Prius, Camry, RAV4 etc.
    To the Tundra… The gains will be significant. 2 things Toyota does better than all others, reliability and Hybrids.

    We agree on one thing, Toyota does good hybrids. Point is the design parameters and performance goals are different for this beast. Doesn't look like MPG was the primary consideration.
