    Agree with this question. Andre did another phenomenal job with his review of all the models, but I was hoping to hear the payload for their red truck and a small comment about getting the tow mirrors which appear to be $290. Those two items plus rear axle ratings will be appreciated by all of us that tow a travel trailer. Thank you TFL for another great review!

    I have a 2013 Tundra and it had one serious issue at about 90,000 km; a throttle body valve. I had it fixed and the truck is still running great at over 210,000 km. I would love to see a HEAVY DUTY TUNDRA to compete with the big 3!!

      I got 400,000 mile out of 2004 Chevy Silverado. Replaced the master cylinder on the brakes and a water pump that literally took 15 minutes. That’s it. Good luck when one or both of the turbo goes out on that tundra. There’s less power, the turning radius is now worst in class, there’s less room inside, compares to prior versions, and there’s no step at the back by the tail gate. That item alone was the most notable at first turn off, other than being a fugly truck. Toyota really disappoints. I know 2 people have issues with the turbo and after waiting a month there’s still no answer on the solution. Is is it mechanical or is it a software issue, they don’t know. And that 10 speed automatic transmission…good luck

      @smart one They can try but it's going to be one heck of a task if the inflation rate doesn't correct by the end of 2022. That, plus they won't make but a few of the base models so they won't be available to purchase anyway. Could keep the dealer markups in play for years to come on all models.

      I think OEM’s are trying to keep base prices similar to 2019, 2020. It just makes for better advertising. The the real hit comes when you try to spec a model that you’d actually want.
      The jump to a 4wd SR5 significant, about 10k.

      @smart one Agreed, but we've seen these market situations before. It also means that the prices we are seeing now are going to set the new floor going forward. If wages continue to stagnate then there will be far fewer vehicles sold, and maybe that was the whole point all along. Less volume low margin vehicles sold and only luxury high profit vehicles having a market, pricing out 80% of the population, decreasing CO and CO2 emissions. Just a theory.

    Hey TFL - What do you guys think about the fact that Toyota chose to save chips by removing the motorized controls from the cloth seats? In my opinion, this was a poor choice to save chips when there are many others in the truck less important to buyers. They of course have not come out and said this explicitly, but it's obvious they had to save chips where they could and this is one area they did. Almost every 2021 SR5 came with motorized seat controls, since they came with the convenience package.

    Thanks TFL for another great video!! I went to see the '22 Limited edition a local dealer and I was a surprised by the GAWR Rear value (same point as Tim below, pulling a travel trailer). The GAWR was lower on this new Limited than my 2016 SR5 CrewMax (1,750 kg for '22 vs 1,885kg my '16). Is there an option/package to bring that Rear GAWR higher than 1,750 kg for the new '22 Tundra or are they roughly the same due to coil-suspension? Thanks!

    Long time lurker, first time poster. I've always enjoyed your guys channel as often times you guys are able to grab that first new shiny truck that the manufacturers come out with. The towing tests since 2015 have been nothing short of phenomenal. The comparisons between last generation trucks and current generation trucks performance wise are amazing to see.
    I do wish for a couple of new things for this channel in the future though. Since Andre bought this truck, perhaps he can go into more detail into the truck as he owns in the long term. As a truck buyer I'm looking for longevity, serviceability by myself the owner, and the mechanical design of the engine and chassis. It would be great to know about the service intervals for each truck you review, where the filters (fuel, oil, and air) are located, how the fluids are changed, and if the spark plugs are in an easy to reach location.
    More information about mechanical design would be great as well. We can see the interior from the manufacturer's website, but we can't see things like specifications on the turbo, extra emissions components (secondary air injection pump, gasoline particulate filters, EGR), lug patterns, or if the lower control arms are made of aluminum or steel. It would also be great if a short explanation can be given as to why a certain component can be advantageous or not. For instance, stating that the 2022 tundra having a mechanical fan means that the cooling ability is FAR greater than that of domestic 1/2 trucks that currently use electric fans.
    A lot of truck channels had the opportunity to dive into the open chassis of the 2022 Tundra, but I am quite surprised that no one actually took advantage of it. Sure the engineer shared some details, but there was a treasure chest of information that was not revealed. Ford stated back in 2017 that one of the improvements they made to the turbo was making the compressor wheel out of a nickel super alloy. What is the Tundra's compressor wheel made out of? Does this tundra have a gasoline particulate filter or just the catalytic converters? How many pistons do the brakes have in all the corners? What sizes are the tie rods vs the old tie rods? Are the alignment tabs the same old crappy ones that toyota uses on previous trucks? Can you fit 33 inch LT tires? Are the spindles now aluminum? Is the drive shaft greaseable or disposable? How many splines are in the rear axle differential? Is the engine block open deck, semi open, or closed deck? How many bolts are on the mains? I feel like the truck channel that is able to answer these types of harder questions will be the one that differentiates itself from other channels this year.

    Only one you can get with the body color grille and short bed up here in Canada is an SR with the TRD sport package. I can't really stand that silver trim on the grille, so looks like I would go for the cheap one. Seems like a reasonably decent deal with todays truck prices. Keeping what I have however all hypothetical here. It is free to play around with the websites after all.

    I would love to get into this truck for a lease. The issue is that for the absolute bottom of the barrel base model you'll most likely be paying $500/mo minimum. That is atrocious and not worth it at all. The mark-up on all the vehicles in the market is obviously due to limited stock and the struggle to find new cars at dealerships but still. $500/mo is wild and the worse part is that it is actually one of the cheaper of the full-size trucks. Only other way you're getting cheaper leases is the A plans for Ford or something similar.

    I love the truck and I was ready to jump on one but there are some issues i wish they could sort out. I feel like they cheated the limited a bit. Features like the tailgate step should be standard for a limited as well as the headlight trim. All the newer trucks have distinguished daytime headlight trims and it’s annoying you have to go above a limited to get them. Toyota also messed up by not giving the customer an option to color match trims on the front and back. You pay so much for the truck they should give the customer these options

    All the manufacturers are coming out with great vehicles today, even the base packages that are offered have so many standard options now. What worries me the most is that you will go broke now a days just buy a truck. And repair costs if you try to keep it for 8 to 10 years. Between all the tech features, 10 speed transmissions, turbos. To get a traditional type truck you will have to buy a 3/4 ton or higher if you want to feel what a truck is like. The old tundra you could put a plow on it, now no more. Wish they would come out with a heavy duty version.

      Have you seen the "Truck King" trip to the arctic sea with a TRD offroad and a TRD pro?
      It seems the suspension of the 'offroad' with the Bilstein shocks is perfekt for towing. The TRD pro has other benefits, it has deliberately a softer Suspension setup with Fox shocks. It is perfect for fast dirt roads, but it is not as well suited for towing, as it seems.

      You’re going to exceed the payload rating on the Pro as soon as you hook up a 9000lb trailer. The payload on the Pro will be ~1300lbs with the weight of the battery under the back seat. Figure 15% tongue weight of 9000lbs is 1350lbs. Then subtract weight of passengers and cargo. I’m sure the Tundra can handle it but you expose yourself to legal/liability issues if involved in an accident and found to be in excess of your GVWR. For the price of the Pro you can get an F350 Tremor 7.3L with ~3800lbs payload, 15k towing, 35” tires, tow hooks, front limited slip, etc and you won’t be up against your vehicles max capabilty when you tow. I’m a Toyota guy but if you want to do real work you still have to go domestic.

With the coil spring rears, I bet the Ram is all but out, as that was it's claim to fame, the handling and ride of the coil sprung rear. But it's reliability is through the floor... We will see what happens.

    Hey guys, Do you happen to know if the catalytic converter is a lot more protected on this newer model? I'm hesitant to get the Tundra because currently in Houston Texas the catalytic converters are stolen on a daily basis from the older Tundra model.

      @silent.screams For what it's worth... F150's cats are closer to the engine, more tucked up into the frame between the frame and transmission with a plastic skid plate under it. You can still see it cuz the cat ends where the skid plate ends, and it's just a few bolts to take off the plate.

    I don't like that the black softex interior is restricted to certain package options in the limited and SR5 trims. I also don't like that you cannot get the TRD package on the platinum but you can on 1794. They need to offer the 1794 or TRD off road trims with more standard or traditional interior colors, black or grey ect. Get rid of the chrome grill surround on the limited, body matched paint looks so much better than the chrome in most cases.

    The thing that made the Tundra stand out from everyone was how they integraded the extended cab truck door into the body. I know its just a little thing, but they tiny doors on the extended cab trucks are just so ugly to me. Its disappointing for the redesign to not have that.

    The more I look at the 2022 tundras the more I think, eat the miles per gallon differences it not much and you would wear a truck out before it would make difference money-wise and buy a 2015 to 2020 Tundra with reasonable miles with good maintenance records that lives in a state were salt and rust is not a big issue, you know AZ and keep the 35 to 40 k difference for well the usual things you have to fix from time to time.

    Great effort but two things for starters you’ll need a lot patience if you want the truck you designed with Toys website, WHY because the dealer I spoke (12/27/21) with told me production will slow in late January. Second, the head sales person I spoke with was clear that not even he knew much about packages, the sales person are simply most interested in quickly selling whatever they’re allotted. DO NOT waste your time trying to configure one now, wait until 2023 your patience will go much further.

    Hey guys. Would like to watch a shootout between 2022 Toyota 4Runner Limited and 2022 Lexus GX 460. Fulltime 4WD SUVs that will disappear soon. The most reliable and safe option for us here in Canada during winter commute. Would like to compare both offroading, fuel efficiency, overall comfort, space for luggage, ect. We also consider replacing our 2008 Highlander Limited (v6 fulltime 4wd) for a modern Highlander Hybrid Platinum. Even though it is not really comparable with the other 2 it is way more efficient and I believe bigger inside. Than you for your great videos.

      @The Truth our dealer doesn't charge over msrp. we have a few dealer add ons, tint, protection, toyo guard. Toyota website is a national average. Not every dealer from every region can go by that. Buying under MSRP at this time is not possible. Trust me I have had to unfortunately let people go because I couldn't take anymore off. Even employees only get 500$ right now. Its just not like it use to be at the moment

      These days build your truck on the Toyota website and that will be the true price. Dealers these days inflate the msrp plus add on top because of the short supply of cars. And they make it sound like they deserve it too. Do not pay, just shop around. Don't be afraid to call them out on that. Remember we used to buy under msrp $3-5k, now they're charging $10k over which to me is insane.
