Looks like my wife's new Lexus RL350 in the front, I'd hate to walk out in our garage and couldn't tell them apart, well you get the idea. I like the Japanese vehicles and would have purchased the Tundra back in 2019 when we purchased the 2019 Ram, but the Tundra was old school then. By the way the Ram is the best truck I have ever purchase to date.

The Ford 3.5 Ecoboost has good turbo access - they are raised above the cylinder head:

The new Tundra might require engine removal, they are below the head.

I have had a Cummins 5.9 (super easy turbo access), and for most inline gas engines it is easy, but for many V engines servicing the turbo(s) is a nightmare. The old Audi All Road twin turbo V6 was this way, 20 hrs labor to change a turbo. (Audi shop rates are way higher than domestic dealers too).

I like Toyota and really like our 2008 Tundra 5.7 V8.  There are 2 Things I wish were better on that truck, gas mileage and the brakes have always been squishy.  My son owns a similar year Sequoia and his brakes are squishy too.  Frankly, I was hoping for a bigger improvement in gas mileage.  We have a new hybrid Highlander and we have been getting 37+ mpg.  I am very happy with that.  I will be interested to see the mileage on the hybrid Tundra.

Placed a $500 deposit yesterday on a white 2022 SR5 Crewcab 5.5 bed Tundra with 12/24 ETA.

I hope it arrives on schedule, what a great Christmas present.

As I said, I am a huge fan of solid axle(s) with good articulation in a truck that will be taken off pavement. When one wheel drops and the other goes up, the axle pivots in the center and the truck stays relatively high and close to level. The differential stays off the ground. The passengers do not freak out….. Toyota does know how to do this well.

This looks a little disturbing:

Not into off pavement stuff with our 4 wheel vehicles. The Tundra will fill the bill perfectly as a TV for Ollie and a daily driver for our needs.  

Still ride motorcycle off pavement a little, but mostly paved twisty riding.

did your new tundra come today???

The dealer said the delivery was moved from 12/24 to 12/28. Hope the Tundra comes in next week, will see. Don't plan to tow with Ollie until we have at least a 1,000 miles. Going to add sideboards and a Diamond back bed cover while breaking in the new SR5. There's some other members here with a Tundra coming, too.

Used to call our last Tundra Stan, guess that will work for the new Tundra, too.

A neat video about “Andon” - why Toyota builds perfect trucks. I had heard about ANDON before, but this provided much more insight and I like this guys YouTube info as he seems to provide pretty accurate information and has previously worked for Toyota in Japan. It’s worth a watch if you have not viewed it. I have heard that Honda also uses ANDON in their production line. 
Sadly according to this gent there are quite a few auto manufactures that know about ANDON but just don’t use it.
Go figure?

Perfect vehicles, is that supposed to be humor? It is an admirable goal, but Toyotas, even “Made in Japan” Land Cruisers, have issues. My wife’s new Acura RDX is a PMC Edition, a limited production car, one of 200 produced in the NSX super car plant - hand painted and assembled by the most skilled and experienced Acura techs from all over the world. ANDON at an even higher level….. Stunning, yes, but not perfect. I think that journalists and people in general should be very cautious about using that term, especially for mass- produced vehicles that have in the past had their (relatively small) share of quality, design and build problems. And some not so small, like the unintended acceleration debacle (floor mats jamming the gas pedals and incinerating families) and rotted out frames. Google “Toyota problems recalls” for a sample.

What is more important IMHO is customer service when the problems inevitably do occur. Toyota is very good in this area. As is Oliver.
