Since your build date is way out, wait to see what the details and pricing are for the next generation of Toyota Tundra. This February will be the big reveal. Rumour has it at a V6 Twin Turbo and higher trims will have a V6 Hybrid. The current Tundra has poor fuel economy but is unbelievably reliable. If I can get the same incentives I got last time, I'll be buying the last 5.7L V8 Tundra next summer.
Great info, thanks! I was wondering when they would update the tundra. Something with better mileage than the current V8 is what I’d like, as we plan to do some long distance trips.

There are a number of Tundra owners here. It makes an excellent tow vehicle for a 5.0. You may have an extended conversation coming about the mounting strategy for the 5th wheel attachment.
When in doubt call TradeMasters in Chilliwack. They are honest and knowledgable. I have the gooseneck attachment and love it too!
Good info. The people who let us tour their 5.0 had a tundra. My wife loves Toyota, as she’s got a Highlander with 203k miles on it. Me, I’d like something that gets better mileage, like a small turbo-diesel. She’s going to be getting rid of the highlander, so whatever we get she’ll need to like, or I’ll not hear the end of it.
Ps. Nice rig!!
