    NHTSA and EPA regulations are killing the ability for companies to provide reliable, durable 4x4's with equal or higher power than previous models... Even my 2017 tacoma was absurd, the first Toyota 4x4 I've ever owned where my stud welder for dent pulling would just melt through even on LOW with small pins! 🤦‍♂️ Every year mileage requirements go up, mandatory safety equipment and testing goes up... Really we've been past the point of no return of having no "real" 4x4's since roughly 2010... If only we had exemptions for REAL Toyota 4x4s like Australia and South Africa... Atleast Ford tried with the Raptor, and Dodge with the power wagon until the EPA necessitated the gas powered ecoboost and terrible transmission... Ford didn't have the best history of reliability before being hampered by having to pair up that combo to maintain the same power levels at a higher EPA spec'd MPG rating... And Dodge died as soon as FIAT took over... RIP Bronco owner's wallets is all I can say 😐 Thanks EPA 👍 now go give some more tax credits to Amazon and Walmart who import everything on cargo ships burning millions of gallons of unrestricted crude oil and low grade diesel so we can have landfills full of un-repairable, single use import products... Great "Green" initiative EPA 👏

      I feel the same, so I'm sticking with my 1st gen 4x4. I love it's reliability, simplicity and size. It has it's shortcomings but the vaunted Toyota reliability stand out in the 1st. gen 167K and 1 oxygen sensor replaced.

    One of the reason those beeps is so infuriating to me is that I know that as soon as you overuse a super annoying beep like that, eventually you learn to ignore them thereby rendering them not only useless, but dangerous. It's a "cry wolf" situation where when you really need the beep you'll have already ignored it.

    Hey max, I hope you see this comment. So I have quite a bit of experience with these 22 tundras my friend jus got 2, a limited TRD Off-Road and he traded in his 2019 1794 for a 2022 TRD Pro, I have been test driving the limited for almost a month now. And to address some of your concerns, the truck does beep at you a lot but for most of these things you can simply just turn them off, like all the safer gadgets that freak out when you’re off-road, for example, lane centering assist etc, they all can be turned and they won’t bother you. Secondly the TRD Off-Road while it has the name off-road in it, it’s more of an appearance package as I have discovered, it doesn’t really make the truck any more off-road capable than a bone stock, I mean it adds the more off-road tires and crawl control but that’s about it, to really get the best out of a TRD-off-road it has to be lifted with better tires as my friend and I found out while taking it off-road bone stock, it scraped and banged on a lot of things, but once the lift kit went on it, it changed into a different truck, also the front bumper on these 22’s are pretty low to the ground for efficiency sake so if you don’t wanna scrape it, it’s most likely would have to be modified. For the android auto disconnecting, I have figured out that it mostly happenes when you wirelessly connect to it, so most of the time using the cable solves that issue, I’ve also had the same problem in a lot of BMW’s where android auto or apple car play just disconnected on me while I was using it, and switching to the wired connection helps, and the problem can be fixed with an OTA update. Regarding the check engine light, same thing happened to my friends Limited Off-Road, it came on while we were driving, tried to restart the truck that didn’t change anything, we took it into the dealership and they ran a scan on it, nothing came up, it happened to just be a glitch for us. So i would say you should try to run a diagnostic check to see what the problem may possibly be. I feel this is the case that happens with any first year vehicle, same thing happens when the previous Gen tundra came out, it had its own fair share of issues but they were all worked out in a year or 2, same thing goes for any brand really, Ford has had a bunch recalls on the new F-150, it’s what happens when you get an all new vehicle, essentially the customers are the beta testers which sucks cos customers who get the bad example have a soured experience of the brand. In the case of the tundra, I have noticed that the trucks who were made the earliest seem to have the most amount problems, while the latter made trucks, have less problems. I have seen people who have had nothing to say but good things about the tundra on KZclip and I’ve seen people who have had problems. I’m really sorry your truck hasn’t been making you happy, hopefully things would turn around. I’ve had nothing but good experiences with the tundra I test drove for quite some time and I’m looking into getting one for myself l, preferably a TRD Pro, Capstone or 1794. I think the new tundra is still a great truck, it’s pretty darn fast for what it is, the interior is miles and miles better than the previous Gen, it rows more, which is very important to me and it’s a lot more comfortable than the last generation. I’ve had a lot of seat time in the last Gen and I can confirm that. I also think it looks better but that’s a controversial opinion 😂. People like to hate on the new thing especially on the internet which made me start to doubt the new trucks but once I test drove one, I fell in love.

    With this being the first year of the updated model hopefully they update and fix a lot off the issues you addressed in the next few years. I’m sure you’re not the only one with the same problems.
    Also I’m glad I have a manual Tacoma and a manual parking brake. Really the only “auto” feature it has is the cruise control and man when it hits the brakes it freaking slams on them. Other than that I’m glad it has less “safety” features than other modern trucks

      @Allan Yang The tundra isn’t the only one that suffers this problem. Most if not all models have issues/bugs to work out in the first couple of model years even with testing. The hard part about testing is real world scenarios where people drive differently and discover issues that were not found during testing pre production. It’s unfortunate but that’s just the way it usually happens

    I agree the safety and quality issues suck but I recently took my dad's limited trd off road for a roadtrip and it was a great experience for me. I love the new drive-train way more than the old due to how smooth and quick it is. The adaptive cruiser control and lane keep assist basically made it to where I wasn't even driving most of the trip, just holding the steering wheel. After a 9 hour drive, I wasn't even tired or anything.

    I also hated the beeping in lane assist. You can change that so it just vibrates the steering wheel. I was very happy to find that it could be changed. Mine has never experienced the random beeping like you are experiencing.

      In all Toyotas it’s annoying, I turned it off cause on the merge lanes for freeways, it would try to turn me back into the lane instead of merging. If you have the turning lights in, no problem but when you don’t, it forces you back into your lane. I hate the seatbelt reminder cause I have a child, and when she’s not with me sometimes, the car registers weight so it starts beeping and after a minute it’ll turn off, but seems now with the newer safety sense versions, they’re going to kill you with noises 😂

      The raptor blew up on him and the tundra stops/alerts his driving style which causes him problems.
      I think his off road expectations of a stock vehicle are too high, but also his driving style seems to be causing him issue with newer vehicles.
      Get an older vehicle without safety technology, actually lift it and put on off road armor/tires, and these problems probably won’t occur. It would also be a lot cheaper than smashing trucks costing $60-90k

    Great video man, I have noticed that safety and economy have taken over driver usability and sadly is what i have seen is that in order to get more driver usability you need to downgrade trim level which is a let down since some people want certain things but cant get with certain trim levels, amazing video though shows what should be addressed with toyota to make their truck better for next year

Its everything I wanted in the truck and lotta things that you discussed about the alarms and sensors I have Don’t have those issues. I would see if I could trade it out for a 21. Just saying. You should find one and drive it. Toyota should call you to test there shitz so you can show them the Max Pain we all love!

    Awesome video! Always enjoy seeing peoples perspectives or takes on things. I virtually have the same exact truck. I have the SR5 that is upgraded to the max | basically a limited trim level. I do NOT have any of the beeping you are getting while you drive. To help you out, maybe try turning off the lane assist? That is the first thing I did. The ONLY time my truck beeps is when I am in reverse. Secondly I thought the automatic air-dam [under the bumper] was only on the Sport packages | not on the Off Road Packages [Mine does NOT have one]? Not saying you are incorrect- maybe its a limited trim level thing? I know you are pretty well versed in truck knowledge- this is more of a question to anyone that knows for certain.
    Regardless- awesome video | great content! I hope the truck works out for you in the end!

    I was super excited to test drive one of these and was very disappointed. Just so you know i hated my eco boost truck and it made me think of it with its rubber band power delivery. They are quick but almost not connected to our foot inputs. I ended up going with the TRX and absolutely love it. It’s old school feeling in how it drives with modern features and tech. I will say i also hate the automatic parking brake when the door is open. I’m thinking of backing up to a trailer.

    The parking brake thing really gets me too. My wife and I just purchased a 2022 Grand Cherokee. We recently took a trip with the pop up and had to take the jeep because my truck was in the shop. I was trying to back it up to hook up the trailer with the door open. The parking brake kept setting and it took me 10 mins to figure out why. Very annoying when I was just trying to get a better view of the trailer.

    Excellent review. I'd been thinking about another one of these or a Sequoia or an LX600 (I currently have a 2012 Tundra and a 2011 LX570), but between rats periodically getting into the Tundra's engine bay to chew on the soy-based wiring (which apparently is still being used in 2022) and all the annoying new tech on the 2022, I'll hold off on buying anything new from Toyota or Lexus for at least a couple of more years...or maybe just bring my 1993 Land Cruiser back out on the road regularly. I've loved Toyotas for years, but the quality, reliability, and sheer driveability seem to be going backwards nowadays, not forward.

    your right it should be higher but the trd of road is more of just an appearance package like below a tremor or rebel if you want off road capability you should get a trd pro, about auto headlights it has them on the left stock you just need top turn it up once to where it says auto, in the settings you can turn of the sensors and make them less loud for the auto parking brake you can also change it in the settings alot of the issues you are having are just fixed through settings and through the dash screen, for the rear seatbelts chime it wont chime unless the seat belt was previously on and then you take it off and put something back there it will beep which is on almost all cars. You really are just bashing toyota about issues that you can just turn off. you also havent even tried to turn these things off.

    This is why I’ll keep my 2015 tundra with the 5.7 with only 45k on it and how I like the simplicity of the truck without all that high tech stuff which compromise the durability and reliability of the vehicle. This truck will be my last truck unless something catastrophic happens and I’ll buy a similar one!

    Thought about taking advantage of current prices, selling my raptor for a profit and getting one of these. Held off to wait for the reviews and early impressions. So far I just don't see any world where I'd get rid of a truck that does almost everything right for one that does so many things wrong. One thing you didn't mention but that is important in snowy areas like the mountains where I live.... No 4A mode, they're still having you shift in and out of 2H and 4H. That was one of the deal breakers for me, especially early or late season when you're often going from hardpack to asphalt and back.

    As much as I like the Tundra, I’m not too sure I could go with the newer models. Some of the things (like the automatic lights), i’m surprised aren’t there, especially with the Limited model. It’s the same with the 3rd Gen base Tacos too. When I got my ‘18 sport taco, I was shocked it wasn’t a feature. Annoying really - The dealer just told me to always leave the lights on and they turn off after about 30 seconds. No thanks. I ended up trading it for a ‘19 Off Road with the tech package which came with auto lights. Luckily, much of the safety sense can be disabled on it so not all the beeps are constant. Good luck with it!

I’m sure that some things will take time to appreciate. It seems like a perfect truck to modify. You’re used to a modified vehicle. The beeping has overrides. Give it a year or two. The only vehicle with automated sound is the pro.. learn your truck a bit more. I agree with the rants on necessary prescription service. If more updates deliver more services that allow adapting to times I’d agree to a paid subscription

    6.50gal or more for fuel in 🇨🇦 right now so I had to make a move on my 18 tundra, great truck but 13 mpg and 9 towing the trailer. Needed something more fuel efficient. Wanted a new hybrid tundra, minimum 2 year wait list. Found a 22 powerboost F-150, so happy with this truck. Basically nothing is not better with the F-150. After a Tacoma and 2 tundras, toyota is very intrusive with the driver assistance, all that beeping would drive me nuts as well as the visibility issues. Great video 🍻

    While I agree there are compromises that make thing’s frustrating for someone who’s use is on the extreme end of the use spectrum for these trucks (wether or not dudes admit it, their trucks see dirt maybe 1% of their lives)., but most of your complaints can be addressed with simple setting adjustments. The seatbelt alarm did require a visit to my dealer to handle during an oil change and they removed it completely. Spend some time getting to know your truck or at least buy something more focused to your needs. The TRD Pro would have solved a bunch of your problems.

    my 2007 Toyota Tundra was the best vehicle I ever owned, I sold it when it had 320,000 miles on it and it had just finally had its first major problem (bent valve needed top end rebuild) before that all I ever had to do was replace the starter, radiator and a timing chain (not cheap) still sold it for a decent amount considering and now looking for another truck am wishing I had just spent the money to rebuild it. to get something comparable I need to spend like 60k and from the sounds of it the new ones aren't as good!! I loved my tundra ! I would agree that even the 07 was not great off-road straight out of the box but I used mine for work ,towing a cargo trailer every single day, it does very well for that type of thing and as a very comfortable reliable vehicle.

My niece bought one on my recommendation and after 4 years and 350k, she welds all over the country , no problems. she traded it for a Dodge Ram because she liked the ram appearance .

    That Ebrake deal has been in Dodge vehicles for years. A few other brands have it also. I drive all kinda vehicles every week so I know how annoying it is. There's some brands out there where you have to press a button to unlock the brakes everytime you get in the vehicle before you can put it in drive. For the cramped feeling I think the fact they all have to share the same frame they can't make one too big because of the Tacoma. It's so odd that my 21 Tacoma SR5 has automatic headlights lol.
