Should You Buy a 2022 Toyota Tundra? Here’s a 2nd Opinion on This Hot Topic

In one recent review, the V6 engine change in the Toyota Tundra was blasted for not providing truck customers with the traditional V8 engine owners look for in a big truck that can handle a big payload. Here’s a 2nd opinion by a Toyota mechanic who walks viewers through his thoughts during an inspection of the new Tundra with an ownership perspective that could change minds.

The 2022 Tundra Re-reviewed

What prompted this latest review-related piece about the 2022 Toyota Tundra were comments from last week by the Scotty Kilmer YouTube channel where Scotty bemoans what he considers to be a big mistake Toyota made by putting V6 engines into the Tundra when he feels that Toyota customers really buy it for its V8 performance.

But is Scotty correct in his assessment of the Tundra and its fit for today’s Toyota truck customers?

Maybe not. Not all truck owners are solely focused on just power, but also put emphasis on looks and functionality as well, not to mention additional modern features. Furthermore, it is possible that the response to the change has been overblown---which is not uncommon when a popular vehicle is redesigned.

To provide another view of what the 2022 Toyota Tundra has to offer the Toyota truck owner, the Car Care Nut has his hands on one and lets viewers know the ins and outs of what else there is to owning the new Tundra outside of engine size and power. In addition, the Car Care Nut also lets viewers know how the trims differ in what they offer.

• Hidden features such as removing a “fake” V8 sound
• Things the reviewer found that are not good and why you might want to wait for the later production run

• MPG expectations and if this is an improvement after all
• The Car Care Nut’s final verdict on what the new V6 Tundra really has to offer
