Traded a fantastic 2013 CM SR5 for a 2018 CM Limited TRD... The old truck had vastly better interior.
New truck has hard seats and it lost many storage areas the 2013 had; door panel cubby, upper glovebox, excellent center console tray/insert.. BUT.. most irritating is the new rear seat frame mess that seemingly blocks all access to the wasted space behind the seat where all kinds of things were stored in my 2013; tool bag, hitches, straps, etc..
The back up cam was relocated from the upper/center rearview mirror to the nav screen, two problems with that..
- I already look at the rearview, so the cam display was excellent additional info in a good place.
- The nav screen gets washed out in the sunlight, its nowhere near as good as the mirror display clarity was, and it adds a fourth place to look at - L/R/Center mirror, plus now radio.
Virtually every interior trim bezel reflects sunlight into my eyes.. chrome rings around a/c vents, trim under nav screen, silver trim around shifter and the shifter itself, worst is the multi-faceted chrome trim around the cupholder.
Too many electronics, too many ding noises (but I'm old'ish and not a fan of that stuff in a truck..)
My 2018 is getting lower mpg than my 2013, and the 2018 engine ticks louder and makes more noise in general :/
Lastly, the leather steering wheel is super slick.
