    Maybe!
    I Have an 2008 with 180k & pull a 7k travel trailer. So, does way better mpg, bigger gas tank, more hp, more torque & more payload interest me? Sure does, but time will tell.

    My 1st gen, at just 57k on the odo does what I need, but, we'll see....


    addendum: If production doesn't ramp up to former levels by then, I'll wait.

    My local dealer has gone from 25-30 Tundras per month to 1-2.

    Of course this has obvious consequences on price/selection.

    My 2018 has 22k on the clock and I still get giddy, everytime that I climb up into the cockpit. I am 51 years old and grew up with all of my high school buddies having muscle cars with V8's. I wanted/lusted for a Tundra ever since the 2nd gen came out. It is also the very first V8 that I have ever owned. The thought of a turbo powered V6, regardless of the efficiency or HP output, sounds very flaccid to me. I understand the demand for fuel economy and blah blah blah..... Couldn't care less. I think the younger American generations are much more acclimated to the idea of smaller, efficient powerplants. The move to a turbo V6 seems depressing to me just as other events in the world are happening. I'm going to run my '18 until the motor falls out. And when I see the new gen Tundra on the road, there will be no new-car-envy from me. No, in the back of my mind, I will be thinking about the eight cylinders under my hood.

    I am hoping for a new gen Dynamic Force v8 naturally aspirated, maybe 5.0L. Or a ducted fuel injection diesel, I would jump on that in a minute. No particulate filter and no def.

    If we can get a 2022 with a V8 then I might get one. Otherwise my next truck will be something that does have a V8. Honestly, the Ram TRX looks like my next truck right now. I will wait to see what Toyota puts out for the 22 model before I buy a TRX.

    If I needed to get rid of my Prius, I would do it. 70 mile round trip commute would kill the bank with my 18.

    I will admit the features on the new Rams are attractive but after reading the reliability ratings and seeing all the problems people have with Rams they are not on my list.

    I recently fell down the rabbit hole with the new Gladiator Mojave, til I started checking the main forums mechanical/warranty sections, that was enough to cure that obsession. It would be hard to go away from a Toyota truck for me.

    Yes they for sure are not as reliable as the Tundra, but the TRX has 700+ HP with a V8. I only keep a truck two years at most anyway, so the reliability factor may not matter as much for me.

    I get your point of view. . I had the same when I bought my 17 Ram. . Changed my mind when I realized how much it sucked being at the dealer constantly with a new truck and realizing that warranty don't mean jack IF ITS ALWAYS THERE and I'm arguing with them about loaners. Traded it and happily lost my @$$ at two years in. . .

    probably not...dont like the idea of it not being naturally aspirated anymore.

    This is a very good point. This will be on my mind when I buy my next truck for sure.

    I'll preorder the 2022 and trade the truck I've only had for 1 year if the '22 model comes with a manual transmission...

    Otherwise, I'm perfectly content with my current truck. Actually quite happy with it overall, though it's in the shop right now investigating a potential transmission noise, and I can't get my damn aftermarket winter wheel/tire combo to balance. The noise was apparently serious enough that the tech has already opened a case with Toyota.

    I put a lot of miles on my truck. I currently have almost 80,000 on my 2018, so by the end of the year I will probably be just over 100,000. Optimum mileage for trade in is under 100,000, so if I like what I see I might be in the market before the end of the year. However, if I go over 100,000 and for whatever reason don't trade, I have no problem running my truck for another 100,000. Time will tell...

    not me. i generally only buy new, just preference. bought my 08 new and they lost me in 2015 when the eol'd factory warrantied trd superchargers. so keep mine forever...or at least until it dies hard then re-assess. hopefully that will be in another 13yrs or never. i'm cool with it as a forever truck.

    I’m either likely to get the new tundra or a gmc AT4 6.2

    im trying to tell myself I can be happy with a turbo 6, it’s not working so far . Maybe that changes when I can drive one

    but damn , that means no V8 throat on a truck . Hmmmm

    I wonder if they will truly only offer 1 motor and that only motor would be a turbo 6 hybrid deal . If they go that route I hope they offer the built in generator like Ford just did , that looks nice !

    Probably have a tiny engine with turbos and a 10 speed. No thanks. It's a truck not a little rice rocket. Who wants a high stress motor in a truck anyway? Just dont understand people nowadays. Wait a few years with those new style engines when those turbo seals go out and saving 3 mpg wont sound nearly as good....

    I specifically went for the tundra because it's a dinosaur. That's the only way you get reliability in my book. If only this thing had a manual tranny, I would probably ask to be buried in it.

    My 2017 Platinum Pro is almost paid off. I’ve ploughing far too much money into tasteful upgrades and getting it 75% to where I want it...
    I’m realizing “Silver Sancha” is too nice of a truck to run an HVAC side business out of. Next Tunny is gonna be an 8ft bed and regular/double cab in Silver to match. I’ll probably lease a 2022 base model with 8ft bed when they finally drop...

    ^^^^^This

    Toyota has their work cut out for them. My guess is it'll be AT4 for me. And I hate GM, almost as much as I hate Ford. But damn Toyota, Ram just dropped a Hellcat into the TRX and they still make plenty of the 5.7 Hemi. GM still does plenty of the 6.2L. Ford puts 5.0L Coyote in a few trucks, but is about to drop the 5.2L Predator into the Raptor because they finally realize the ecoboost is total crap for a fullsize truck after 8 years of production.

    So, build a 550 horsepower, 550 ft-lbs tourque V8 Tundra, or don't build crap, because I will be driving something else. And you should build trucks based on what I want.

    You're not going to wait for the 6th gen 4R? It should be out sometime in the next decade... :rofl:It's driving the 4R guys bonkers in their forums that there are rumors, but not even sketchy spy pics of a 6th gen yet.

    At least we have spy pics of the new Tundra!

    As for the original topic, I don't know. Most likely not, but never say never. I really like how my current Tundra drives. It's more basic than the competition, sure, but that's what I find appealing. I don't need gadgets to fuss with while I'm driving, and I don't like all the gimmicky fuel saving efforts and computers trying to figure out my driving style and how to optimize efficiency no matter the situation. When I push the gas I want it to go, if I give it more gas I want it to go faster. KISS. I just need a solid truck that is pleasant to drive and always gets me there, and I currently have that.

    THIS. Sounds about right. My '02 went 17 years and was still going strong when I bought my'19 and sold it. I'm thinking 2039. I'll be 80 and revisiting my needs I think at that point. Like when I bouight the '19, should have some money saved from all the years without car payments to just about pay for whatever comes next. My '19 is paid, has been for over a year because of my '02. If I jumped on any new shiny like a kid with 'big eyes' I would be in debt. Gotta live in reality; I work for the state at a school in IT and I aint getting rich there...

    I’ll bet that future travel trailer will get you, mine did mostly due to payload.

    It can be done, but it takes more restraint than my family has. Get a small/basic trailer while packing light and you can keep it within the payload.

    If the safety rating on 2022 goes up, I will trade it in. Otherwise, not worth it.

    S**t my budget barely allows the 2013 I have. The new gen will probably roll in with a base price in the high 40’s so as much as I will probably want a the new one, I don’t see it happening. I honestly don't know how folks are able to afford the vehicles they do now a days.
