I saw a discussion in the Tundras and Trailers group on Facebook, where a person was asking how long it takes for a Toyota Tundra to arrive if he ordered his car in January of the current year.
He says he ordered his 2022 Tundra in January and is still waiting on delivery. The user's name is Mark Taylor and Mark says he is looking forward to camping this summer with Freedom Express, but doesn't want to book too much and have to cancel because the truck isn’t in. "Any experience with the timeline for delivery?, Mark asks, adding that he ordered the 2022 SR5 TRD Sport Tundra.
Well, first of all a good salesperson at your Toyota dealership should be able to give you a good estimate on when your Toyota vehicle will be delivered. There are so many variables these days that may delay the delivery of your 2022 Toyota and push the delivery time back several months. However, there is also one aspect I would like you to know and take into consideration.
It's not really about when you ordered it your Toyota vehicle. "The real time line begins when your dealership gets the allocation," explains Wesley Kennedy in the group.
If you have a VIN you can have your Toyota dealer track its progress. "In my case, I found a dealership close by that already had an allocation for the truck I wanted. They were able to give me an estimated built and delivery date. The build date was two days later than the estimate and the delivery date was three days earlier. Until your dealership gets the allocation you could be looking at a very long wait," Kennedy explained.
Thus, before you order a vehicle, ask your Toyota dealership if it has an allocation. That will help you to determine your delivery time line.
By the way, these types of discussions about car delivery times are very common these days in automotive forums and social media. In fact, there was a similar discussion by the RAV4 hybrid owners and enthusiasts, who were discussing and explaining the delivery timelines of their 2022 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid.
Tundra is a great truck. Did you know that the 2022 Toyota Tundra is the only truck with a single advantage in sales? It's probably because of its multimedia system, among other good specs of this truck. You may not believe it, but see what the 2022 Tundra's multimedia system can do.
Please, check them out and let me know your thoughts and your wait time experience in the comments section below. Did you have to wait for your Toyota for weeks or months?
