    Hello all. I'm a long time member of Tacoma world and ordered my third gen Tacoma when they came available. After a test drive I cut a deal to trade my FJ for an off-road longbed inferno. Love my truck but now I have 2 kids and things are tight for us all.
    I didn't question what I would need to upgrade to and so I kicked the dust off my Toyota news Google feed and began researching Tundras. I've got some good options for local 18' models but I'm holding out for a possible 8 speed tranny on the iForce next year. Didn't want to wait too long as I heard rumors of a turbo v6... And aluminum buddy but who really knows. The tried and true formula of this V8 is what I want.

    What are y'alls thoughts? Go forth with the 18 models and save some cash or hold out? I know it's all personal preference but I'd like some options. I do like Android play and all that nonsense... As a tech gurus that's an important thing to me and I've gotten so use to my push button start and Blind Spot Monitoring it would be noticably missed if I didn't have it again.

    Welcome from NM!

    If you find a good deal on one now, I’d say to just go for it. There’s been no mention of the 2020 tundra having the 8-speed trans, the 2021 model year might but who knows. Either way, I think you’ll be satisfied.

    Welcome from East TN! Save some cash and get an 18 if you can. These trucks are proven. I'd wait a few years after the next gen releases to let Toyota work the bugs out of it before buying.

    I say buy now, since you know exactly what you'll get. The first year of a new gen is always rocky anyway.

    I went with the 2019 pro because I didn't want to be a test subject for anything coming down the road.

    Some like all the new things they are thinking about coming out with and I am an old, salty I.T. guy so I get enough tech bullshit at work.
