Question Why More CM Tundras Available?...

(Try this again)…

Been looking at Tundras via the NET at various dealers in my area…

I notice many more CM cabs as DC models…

Are the CM more popular or do they not sell as well as the DC’s and they (DC's) are all off the lots as they sold first?...

Thanks…BCB

I think it might be a price thing. If you’re restricting yourself to certain prices, the DC’s come out a bit cheaper. If you’re looking more at the top end, I think you’ll be more likely to find the more expensive crew max. Just a guess. Might also depend on area you live. Larger bed might be appealing to those in more rural areas. CM might be sufficient in less rural areas. These attitudes might affect how dealers order.

Gentlemen,

my experience is that CMs are the most popular. I wanted a DC, SR5, white color, 5.7 liter with tow package. There were plenty CMs with short bed. I wanted a full size bed. Could not find one in my district. Ordered a new 2018 that took almost 3 months. It was worth the weight.

Yea, it appears they must be becoming more popular. I guess the DC SR-5 is becoming an entry level Tundra…

Maybe I best start looking for the DC SR-5 and add a few options, whatever might be available as it might take some time to find one as mentioned…

Gotta say, getting my first Tundra, 2007 was a much easier process it seems. The 2014 I acquired by driving nearly 300 miles and picking it up at a large dealer. Not going to do that this time…

I most likely will stay with Tundra, but the local Ford, Chevy, Ram, and GMC have some pretty good selections and the colors are nicer than offered by Toyota. Starting to become difficult, or at least a bit more difficult to find a Tundra. My buddies have the above mentioned and they don’t seem to be having much trouble with them although I hear horror stories on the site…

The ’14 has not been as good as the ’07. If I get an '18, I sure hope it isn't dropping in quality as much as between the '07 and the '14...

We shall see…

Thanks…BCB

I have a DC I do not need a CM . I live in CNY in rural area and closest dealer has nothing but CM and I have not seen any DC at that dealer . The bigger dealers in Syracuse and Rochester have a 50-50 mix . I think it depends on the dealer . Maybe from what I see dealer by me has not sold many tundras because they have no DC's.

I agree. I don't need the CM either or at least I don't think I do...

I am going to compare the differences, but I think I will stick with the DC SR-5. If I decide to stay Tundra...

Make sure you at least sit in the back seats of both. The room in the CM is awesome, not sure on the DC.

I previously owned a Silverado with 4 doors and the difference is night and day, but Im sure the Dc isnt anything like the Silverado
in terms of room.

In all honesty, the back seat in my '14 has been used a dozen times at most! I don't haul people or dogs! Not that I'm against hauling people, it is that I never have had a reason to do so, only on a couple of occasions. The seats have been covered with Seat Saver's and I imagine they look as good as new...

I do like the storage under the seat though. I have read there is not that storage in the CM. Is that true. That will be one thing I definitely look at...

Concerning the Silverado, are you saying it had as much room as the CM?...

I have not ruled-out yet any of the big 3 or is it 4 in this Country...

Thanks...BCB

For me the biggest disadvantage of the CM is the shorter bed.
I'd rather have the 6' bed.
With The Flex cover and bed rug, it's like a 6 foot trunk..



I can fit 5 adults in my DC just fine on the rare occasion that happens.
That rear seat of a CM would be a waste of space for my needs.

In my CM, there isnt alot of storage area under the seats.
My Silverado DID NOT have much leg room in the back. The CM has tons of leg room.
Plus my two boys are 6-1 and 6-2, so they now have leg room, if they are with me...

I have a 2015 DC . I bought it new . I am retired and do not need extra room in back seat . I took my inlaws to Canada once and they never complained about not having enough room . That is the only time anyone rode in the back seat . Its nice having the extra room in bed and bonus the DC does much better in crash tests .

The DC is a perfect arrangement for my needs. Good access & leg room for people in the back seat. Wonderful storage with the back seats folded up. Plenty of payload in the truck bed for plywood sheets. I have not found a competitor that can match or exceed these features.

The CrewMax must sell better than the double cab. Both great trucks. I went with the crewmax because I have 3 kids. Plenty of room. It’s like a limo in the back.

If you have kids, especially those in car seats, the CrewMax makes life much easier. Everyone has their own use case, but remember, you can never add more cab room. You can buy a trailer, bed extender, etc. to make up for the loss in 12 inches. Do I wish Toyota would make a CM with 6.5’ bed, yes. But my 5.5’ bed has worked great. I haul dirt bikes and even if I had a DC, I would not be able to close the tailgate.

If storage is of concern, there are vendors who offer products to add storage under the seats.
