Look at that smile! Publisher Tim Esterdahl has been waiting several weeks now for the word that his 2022 Toyota Tundra Limited could be picked up at the dealership, and this week he finally got the phone call. He flew to Texas to take delivery and is currently driving this beauty home to Nebraska where it will be his daily driver and work truck for the next several months to a year.
In case you’re just joining us, this truck was bought specifically to do a long-term review here on PUTT — same as last year’s F-150 hybrid. So, get ready for lots of video content as Esterdahl drives his new truck around, learns about it and reports back here.
If you recall, Esterdahl really wanted to get the Tundra hybrid, but that one isn’t available until 2022, so he opted to go ahead and buy the twin-turbo V-6 in Blueprint, and boy is it sharp. This one is a crew cab with a 5-foot bed, and it’s the Limited trim with the TRD and technology packages on top of that.
Things to love:
What’s missing can be summed up in two words: Running boards. What? A truck this big that doesn’t have running boards? That’s right. A lot of off-road vehicles don’t come with them because they tend to get in the way. But vertically challenged folks like Esterdahl kind of need them. (Ahem.)
Anything else you see to love or miss on this truck? Be sure to watch the video below and let us know in the comments.
