I know we will have a hybrid model tundra next year.
 
The instructor said he got to drive one of the pre production hybrid tundras, he said you definitely will not want a diesel after you drive the hybrid tundra (massive amounts of powers).


A hybrid and not a twin turbo? From the rumors more power than the Ecoboost and better mileage. Will we have to get a 15 year mortgage to afford it?

The hybrid f150 makes more power than the ecoboost now too. More tow rating too. Hybrids will take over the lead in power.

This is just me but I have been holding off this year because of the crazy prices... I just heard a rumor that Ford received  a bunch of the computer chips they were waiting for to ship F150s out.... can't confirm if it's true (Jackelope?) but after the stockpiled trucks start hitting the lots, I'm guessing there are going to be some serious deals and 0% financing offers....
We got a few new trucks and transit vans in this week.  I heard rumor that they’re going to ship trucks without the chips and have us install them after the fact too. Can’t confirm that.

It’s not just trucks either. We’ve got 12-15 Focus and Fiesta’a sitting here with bad transmission control modules waiting for parts that we can’t get.

Saw this on the news last week. Ford is running out of storage space.

I would love it if a HUGE wave of trucks came available.......   and I could pick one up at a reasonable price.

Ya, read about that a month and a half ago and this is exactly where my speculation of great deals to come is based on.... it's insane

Tundra is the most overrated car on the market, next to Tacoma.
You’re likely to get one with a crappy rusted frame and bed, has or desperately needs suspension upgrade and then you’ve still got 20 year old technology.
2015 F150 has been flawless with 118k.
Ten years driving a Toyota and I would never go back.

i have a 2013 f 150 with the 5.0 its a power house and i havnt had a single problem stay a way from the eco beast no replacement for displacement. a truck shouldn't need a turbo unless its a diesel.   
You sound like you know a lot about trucks.

OP-This is a more educated look at why 'you can't go wrong with a Tundra'.

Toyota fanboys will want to turn down the volume so you can't hear the audience literally laughing at the Tundra.

I bought a used 2007 Toyota tundra with 38k miles on it in 2014. She now has 180k rough miles on her. Been a real piece of garbage for me. List of things I've had to fix or replace on that truck are as follows:

• all 4 rotors at 150k miles





My next truck won't be a tundra due to the fact I can't get a crew and 6.5ft bed. It'll likely be an f150 xlt ecoboost.

ha! I had two fords prior to the tundra. Both 7.3's. Great trucks. Id be getting another tundra but like I said, gotta have the crew cab and a 6.5ft bed and they don't offer it. Their crew max is so over the top huge. Chop a foot out of that cab and put it into a longer bed for God's sakes.
