I hope they finally upgrade the rear brakes to discs. Drum brakes went away years ago for most vehicles. They also need to upgrade engines, transmissions etc. It needs a big boost in fuel economy and power also.

front end looks good imo.. HOWEVER the chrome must to go
Toyota has gone full late 70’s, early 80’s Voltron/Gundam with all their new vehicles. It’s just plain cheesy and also will be more expensive to fix all the plastic.

the Tundra’s TRD Sport front end looks great if you ask me.

The Lexus F-sport started that whole huge grille thing and on those, it looks good. Toyota seems to be doing it on a lot of their vehicles as well and have gone a bit overboard. That Tundra grille looks like a fish mouth! Pass..
I do like the Tacoma's though.

Unfortunately with Toyota they use 4-door crew cabs on all but the low end SR model and this also means having a short 5-foot bed. Getting up inside the bed is a pain as Toyota has done nothing over the past 50 plus years to provide a tailgate step or grab post as with the Ford and Ram trucks.

I’m struggling with the initial build quality of my F150 but I owned a 2018 Tacoma and no vehicle (I’ve had 9) overpromised and underdelivered to that extent. It was a bit of a soul sucking experience that lasted 1 year / 10k miles.
Curious why you say that about the Tundra. Care to share your experience?

As of 2022 you can get a crew cab Tundra with a 6.5" bed

Agreed. The lack of a step to gain access to the bed is a miss. It was one of the factors that led me to cancel the deal I had on a 2022 Tundra.

I owned a Tacoma not a Tundra and disliked it for reasons you’ll find discussed all over the internet: awkward / painful seated position, anemic acceleration south of 4000 RPMs, erratic transmission that thrashed me around as it shifted early and often, squeaky leaf springs, no CarPlay, no auto head lights, cramped, didn’t accommodate people over 6 ft easily, subpar mileage, unimpressive towing, imprecise steering, a 1 inch “telescoping” wheel, and on it goes.

Ah, I misread your post. Thought you were talking about Tundra.

Yes, Taco was out for me based on towing needs.

I still sat in one anyway just to see what they're like and agree on the seating position as well.

SR5 and Limited are available with SCAB 6.5 which is equivalent to XLT and Lariat of Fords.

We test drove a 2022 Tundra Platinum hybrid. Amazing drivetrain, but frustrating software interface, bad towing menu (only in the gauge clusters 3 inch screen), poor heads up display, and the lack of fold flat rear storage was a deal breaker.

Also the fake engine noise was extremely loud.

I get why people like them, but if you're gonna tow, I'd look elsewhere.

are you sure you test drove the Platinum trim? i’m 99% sure they have the full digital gauge cluster standard on them.

Yes! Here's the exact truck. The gauge cluster is digital, but they only give you a tiny section on the left to set up your towing. No where near as defined and thought out by Ford or GM.

I cannot stop seeing "Taco Ma"! Mom would ask, "Flour or corn?" Avocado would be a good color palette to choose from.
