I'd be willing to bet on a 3.5 (similar to what is coming in the LS500)
"the LS has always used a V8 as its sole powerplant. Now the car uses an all-new 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6, which Lexus says delivers V8 power and acceleration. It’s rated at 415 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque"
Of course tuned more like a truck
They are way past due LED's (front and rear)
and like somebody else mentioned hopefully a better sound system and remote start system
wouldn't hurt to shed 200+ pounds
The 6.2L is backwards, new engine will be a 2.6L 4 cylinder 10 speed auto. Gone are the days of real engines in trucks, they keep pushing tiny lawnmower size engines now. They say the turbo engines will tow/haul more...sure but how long? What's the real world reliability of that idea? From what I've seen not very good at all.
I hope they do some major updates because truthfully I've looked at the '16+ tundras and they're the same as my '08 tundra with a few cosmetic changes and at some point they replaced the T-case, 2010 or 2012 I think. They've stripped things out of the newer tundras that my 08 base model has, and they've raised the prices on them drastically. My 08 sticker was $32,580 new ones comparable features are $35k. Sure a $3k increase doesn't sound like much but they've removed features and the truck is basically the same as far as power train and body.
I know they suck for fuel economy...9mpg the past 1-1/2 months the truck has been in 4WD constantly due to road conditions and extended warm up times due to being below zero for several days and teens for highs LOL. They run great but man the pocket book feels the 4WD usage LOL.
I had about 2' of snow in my driveway, its now kind of melting so its about 14" of snow left now but its a mess. We had 8" of snow on the ground when I had my truck in for its 100k service and transmission service and all that done. I got to drive a 2017 RAV4 AWD. It did great in the 8" of snow/ice mess we had then but man I don't think it would make it through my driveway with the 2' of snow I had up until a few days ago. My tundra has a hard enough time fighting through all that snow.
There's gotta be some improvements and changes coming but I don't see it in 2018 from what I've been seeing and reading, same truck again
. Come on Toyota...ok fine wait another 10-15 years when my '08 tundra is closer to being worn out LOL.
