Mechanic Voices His Disappointments with the New Toyota Tundra

Is the latest model of the Toyota Tundra the right model for you right now? Here’s what one mechanic who misses the traditional V8 models of yesteryear has to say about it as he points out the pluses---and the disappointments---he sees in one recently bought in this new review.


The Tundra Re-reviewed

Never the last word on anything car or truck related with particular models, Scotty from the Scotty Kilmer YouTube recently reviewed a brand-new Toyota Tundra with the V6 dual turbocharged engine and shows that he just might be slowly coming around to Toyota’s Tundra change.

In an earlier article we saw Scotty bemoan the loss of the Tundra V8 with his arguments why truck shoppers just may want to start looking around for a used Tundra or even a new model of a different make in order to get the kind of vehicle truck owners want.

However, according to Toyota, the turbocharged V6 is claimed to produce more torque than the original V8 and get better gas mileage. But is this enough to get Scotty to change his mind about the new Tundra?

To find out the answer to that question, here is Scotty’s latest review that is not a “Bash this Toyota Change” opinion piece, but one that points some begrudging pluses and disappointments that Scotty sees with the newest model available today.
