    90's LS 400 vs 1st gen Tundra is about as good comparison we can take here, right about the same engine except for 0.7L displacement. LS is undoubtedly smaller and lighter yet only gets 16 mpg in the city and jumps to 23 mpg hwy, so the more aerodynamic profile does have a big impact too, tundra gets almost the same mpg in the city :eek:
    Big engines are just hungry, no changing that.

    I don't think anyone's willing to put the effort in creating a truck body that can effectively achieve the lowest drag possible when consumer vehicles sell anyway

    How so? This is a civilized debate with no fact checkers to distorted reality. This is nothing like a Facebook discussion. First off, we all enjoy the said product of our choice and are willing to defend that choice in a civilized manner.

    I LOVE my Big V8

    After installing the TRD Performance Dual Exhaust I LOVE it even MORE!!!

    Gas mileage for me is totally irrelevant. Some of my past Muscle Cars (aka The Devil’s Nightmare) were lucky to be get’n 3-4 mpg. Boy were they ever fun to drive at Wide Open Throttle!

    I feel exactly the same way. That sound from that dual exhaust reminds me of an old school muscle car. It is a thrill to drive every time.

    I would like to offer my feedback on the v8 /TTV6 conversation. I have owned many vehicles the last 15 years. One thing I have learned is that sometimes it’s best to stick to the older models even though the newer ones offer a little bit better mpg and features. At the moment I own a 21 f150/ 22 sienna/ 21 tundra / 21 Subaru that my wife drives. The sienna is a complete disappointment compared to the previous gen. I am planning on getting rid of the sienna and getting a new gx460 soon before they change them. The only reason I purchased the tundra even though I have a truck that I drive daily is to have the last of the v8. My opinion is that everyone is going to buy the new tundra and right away wish they would have kept the v8. This happened with the new Tacoma, so many problems at first and now you see the last gen tacomas demanding 5-10k more than they sold new with high mileage. The way I see it if you have the option to stick with what’s proven than I would quickly find one and stick with it. Just my thoughts.

    Fun fact, there's actually more trees now than a 100 yrs ago due to the increased carbon levels.

    and they were about 50 times higher when the dino's were roaming around, this is the point I try to make when people blame cars for pollution

    I think your scientific method is broken. There is no imperial evidence to support your claim. These are theories that come and go. Yes, pollution exists from heated homes to cars that are way cleaner than they were 30 years ago to factories that billow pollutants into our sky. I think when you look at the issues you take the easy ones to try and address while ignoring the ones that are the most pressing.

    But we can play along with your game, what % of difference do you think it will make for turbocharged engine that gets 5 mpg difference over a V8 engine. More importantly, is the difference even material or is it negligible?

    It seems to me the real impediment to a lower carbon footprint for the auto industry is that literally no one except Toyota is building vehicles for long service lives. Building a new vehicle—particularly one with a hybrid battery—has a massive CF, and you can bet automakers want to keep everyone in a monthly payment, whether that’s through a lease model or simply trading in every few years. It would be much better for everyone’s personal pocketbooks (and worse for the automakers’ pocketbooks) if we would just keep our vehicles for 10-15 years instead of being wowed by the new shiny thing.

    But no one wants to think about the fact that they’re contributing to the exact environmental problem they think they’re helping to alleviate by buying a new, (slightly) more efficient vehicle every few years. Especially if it has massive batteries made of rare earth minerals that will murder an entire ecosystem if it leaks into it.

    When we buy a new vehicle every 3 years, we are supporting the manufacture (and all the energy and mining of materials that goes into it) of 5x the vehicles that keeping and maintaining one for 15 years would support.

    If we chose to keep our v8 trucks for 10-15 years, instead of supporting the supply of new vehicles by demanding them every 3-5 years, this would have a MUCH bigger effect on net pollution. But we’re suckers for eco-marketing and suckers for that MPG readout on the dash.

    I’ll probably end up in a TTv6 Tundra, but I’m not planning on it for a significantly long time.

    I bought a 2021 a couple of weeks before the 2022 was announced. On purpose. Not that I wouldn't mind a massive power increase, but I specifically bought a vehicle that has remained basically the same for over a decade. On purpose. I'll have this truck until the government POS's are charging us extra to drive them.

    It's actually not suprising, IIRC, Toyota said the V8's will be reserved for Lexus.

    Sorry for those who bought the 3rd gen Tundra, this must be a kick in the nuts... right?

    Tow hooks? Most likely.

    Recovery hooks? I doubt it.
