    Hi all.

    I am looking to buy a late model 1794 soon. I’ve had a couple before but returning.

    Question - pros and cons of going with a ‘19 versus a ‘20+? I know about the keyless entry and push button start, as well as the updated entune.

    I use the phone more than the entune anyway. And I tend to think I could live with a key.

    Am I missing any other differences? Thanks.

    I think those are the big differences, though I haven't looked at the 1794 specifically very closely. The other thing to consider is Tundras hold their value well so a new one may not cost all that much more than a used one with some miles on it.

    I agree here. I used to follow Blue Book prices back when they really meant something. A lot of Toyotas actually went up in used retail value for a year or two over their original MSRP.

    The big issue for me would be financing options. You're probably going to get a very low interest rate buying the new truck versus a higher rate for buying used. My area was offering 0% a few weeks ago. As previously stated, the used trucks and new trucks are going to be similar in price.

    In my opinion, there's not a lot of difference in features between the 2019, 2020 or 2021 truck.

    The biggest reason is that a truck thats one year old with 30k miles of some other dudes ass sweat on the seat is valued so high that its very close to a brand new truck. Thats the biggest reason to get a new one. The new entune and carplay is incredibly slick as well.

    Hell, there's a 2018 1794 at my local dealer with 90,000 miles for $37,000. 90,000 miles is a lot of bean farts going into that seat!
