Iíve personally been shopping around for two years for a truck.
I bounced around between the big 3 and Toyota.
A few things that really pushed me towards my decision.
1. The company I used to work for, all the Project managers had Tundras. There were 10-15 of them, all of them had 250-350k miles on them. Other than tires and oil changes, one blew an alternator.
We had 2 year old gmc vans blowing motors with 50k on them.
2. Out of everything I see on the roads here in Wisconsin. Every truck 5-10 years has a ton of rust due to the amount of salt thatís used... except the Toyotaís. All the big 3 are rotting away.
My fathers 2010 ( bought new on clearance in 2011) Silverado 2500 with 40k miles on it blew the ac, transmission was slipping, and his bed was rusting out in the fenders.
3. My best friend lives 15 min away, he has a 2016 ecoboost 2.7.
It will get 23 mpg at 80 which is sweet
But every time he comes to a stop, it shuts off and back on.
Not sure about you guys but the hardest thing on a motor is stop and go and start and stop..
Heís already had the starter replaced once and he doesnít believe me but I told him to run his engine for a min or two before shutting it down every time. Guess who needs new turbos already with 28k miles on his truck :/
Yeah the tech in the tundras May be a touch behind, but consider the tundras the iPhone of the truck world. They may be a few years dated, but theyíre proven to work with less
Personally I only have 600 miles on my 2018 CM limited, but holy cow the led head lights are bright. Highly recommend getting one with them.
The lane sensors are pretty annoying but they turn off.
the adaptive cruise is awesome, till you realize youíre not doing what you set it for because the moron in front of you is doing 10 under.
So far Iím averaging 16.7mpg with mine, which may be low compared to other manufactures but itís also not a small vehicle.
If you can wait till they release the 19ís Iíd say get an 18í then, but if you donít wanna wait, Iíd say you wonít regret it.
