Toyota nailed it with the Tundra. It's rock solid dependable, powerful, comfortable, and capable. I work in construction, I have every new make and model of pickup truck sitting in my parking lot right now from other coworkers and have ridden in all of them. The Tundra is the last truck on the market that actually FEELS like a truck, everything else feels like a glorified sedan with a bed. It's a true battle tank worthy of the truck title. The only way you'll be even slightly disappointed in the Tundra is if you're big in to modern tech packages and sound systems. The Tundra packs a very basic tech package that isn't going to blow your socks off, but you can always count on it to work, and that's really what matters most is it not? If you need to get real work done and don't need a 3/4 or 1 ton pickup, just get a Tundra. If you're just cruising out to Starbucks to pick up a Venti gender neutral before heading off to your gay pride parade then Ford, Chevy, or Dodge would certainly be a better fit for you.
Being a lifetime Silverado owner, I decided it was time to try something new. Once past the test drive phase, I felt I may be making a mistake as it felt as if I was driving a heavy and uncomfortable box-truck and the ugly interior just wasn't doing it for me. But, I was willing to try it out, so I took it home with me. Within the first 2 months, the truck started feeling like it was lacking power, or as if I was towing something. I thought maybe it may be bad gas so I made sure to pump Chevron the next fill-up. Long story short, I gave up on the truck after a few miserable dealer visits and traded it in for Dodge Ram, and never looked back.
I've had a Ford,Gmc,& Dodge Ram in my past and don't know why it took me so long to come to the Tundra side... biggest thing is if something was to happen to my Tundra yes I would without a doubt go get me another one .. excellent truck
The transmission is terrible on the highway. The navigation system is OK as long as u are near a major city. The cloth seats are made of poor material(front seat cover replaced after less than a year) The dash lighting is poorly designed. Cannot recommend this vehicle. Toyota doesn't seem to care.
