LMAO, when's the last time you rented a vehicle? I can promise you that there are ZERO (yes Zero) 1794 Edition V8 Tundras that get 12MPG at any rental companies.

The Platinum will have the best/easiest resale. The Pro and 1794 are going to have a limited audience. While they are both equally nice/expensive (I own a 1794) not everyone likes the interiors. The Platinum suits many more people.

I have rented cars from top level pick up trucks, to porsche. You can rent an S63 amg or a Farrari. Just because ypur local airport dosnt offer it for rent does not mean some one else won't.

It could also be dealer owned os a loaner car. My local dealers used top trim cars as loaners, because they want you to say "wow this one is really nice, i want to trade".

Just wondering why anyone would care about the resale from the Pro or the 1794 ? I'm not being rude or anything.

I'm an Executive Elite status with National and rent 4-5 days a month around the entire country. I'll stand by my statement. There are ZERO 1794 Edition Tundras for rent.

Next time you spot one take a pic. Send me your unicorn pics too please.

My point was.. That you can find a used TRD Pro in better condition than some platinums or 1794 Tundras. Saying that 1 will have better resale than the other is a fallacy. resale is effected by many things like service history, amount of owners, modifications done, how clean it is, color, demand. I still stand by that as well. I would rather buy a stock, 1 owner trd pro with full service records than a platinum or 1794 that has had multiple owners, no service history, or has been modified.

This thread was about how much different resale value will be between a white CM 4x4 Tundra in TRD Pro, Platinum, or 1794 trim. The difference in resale value will be directly tied to msrp. If all other things are equal, the more expensive truck will be worth more used. That does not mean you should spend extra money on a more expensive truck. using made up numbers for simplicity; if you get 50% of msrp after 10 years, and your choice is 40K for a TRD Pro or 50K for a 1794. you would get 20K for the TRD Pro, and 25K for the 1794. Spending the extra 10K upfront does not justify only getting 5K more at the end. You still Lose an extra 5K of your money. This is of course if the buyer is buying just for resale, and does not actually want / need the 1794.

There is no need to get butt hurt over who rents what kind of car how often... That is just silly. IMHO buying solely for resale value is silly. If protecting your money is the most important part of buying a car, don't buy a car. or buy the cheapest one you can find and do something else with your money.

for the OP I still sand by my advise to buy which ever trim level you want the most. The difference in trim level on the same 4x4 CM Tundra will have 0 effect on how much of your money you get back. If you want to preserve the value of the truck take care of it, and keep it stock. Keep up on all the regular maintenance, and keep records of it. you will get more money back from any Tundra than you would a comparable ford, GM, Dodge, or Nissan.

I am in agreement with DBL TAP. On a personal note I would not look for a used TRD PRO just based on how I would think someone might treat that truck as a purpose build off road thrasher. But I love the looks of the TRD PRO so my Platinum looks a lot like one.

All the 'upgrades' can be taken from the three models and be put on any trim (except the sunroof) and last time I checked upgrade's depreciation is way higher than a stock truck is.

I go w/ a Platinum to hold way more than the rest.

Your comparison is silly and you're the one in a tissy because I pointed it out, not me. Obviously a beat up piece of $hit is worth less than a well kept Tundra.

The question was, if all things were equal, which would have a better resale value? You're simply telling us that a naturally beautiful big breasted virgin is more attractive than a crack whore who took a shower.

I trip on the fact that people look for dealer Carfax service records as to how well the truck is maintained. I know not all dealers are bad but after reading quite a few threads about horror stories of what the dealer does to skimp or not perform the maintenance correctly, basically half assing it. Personally if I can help it, I will never take my truck to the dealer for maintenance. Hence I will have no service records other then some oil receipts and part receipts from what I have done to the truck and then there is no proof that I actually perform these tasks. Unless I make a photo collage of everything I've done LOL. But I do write everything down in the logbook. Although when I've traded in vehicles in the past and tried to give the dealer the receipts and maintenance log, they don't even want it.

Difference will be negligible. Just get the truck that you want now. I'd personally get the pro. I think they look the best and perform the best.

IMHO,

The TRD PRO will command a higher resale price compared to original MSRP... HOWEVER, it will most likely be easier to find an actual buyer for a Platinum/1794 vs. waiting for someone to come along who wants the Pro.

Me personally, I didn't like the 1794 Interior. It's nice, yes, but idk...i saw the seats tearing up in the near future. Ended up with a Platinum.
