Toyota managed to keep the 5.7 (and same drivetrain) in production 14 years (2007-2021) without any dramatic drop in sales. Allowed Toyota to squeeze max profit per unit due to dramatically lower R&D and production costs.

Ford introduced the very successful, popular 3.5 Ecoboost in 2011. After 11 years. Toyota finally decides to jump on-board with their own twin-turbo V6 for the 2022 Tundra.

It would appear folks don't buy Tundras for their latest technology or raw powertrain performance. So what keeps 'em competitive?

Not a fan of the looks of the new one but I absolutely loved my 2007 Tundra 5.7
Never in the shop once for repairs though it had a few recalls.

Sold it at 106,000 miles and 8 years later. Had it detailed and it looked like new.

Would still have it but we bought a bigger trailer.

Best truck I ever owned.

LOL, this must be what keeps Yoder selling trucks! Someone puts 10k a year grampa miles on a truck and is impressed that it was a reliable vehicle....

Not saying it isn't relaible, but at 100k miles, I cant tell you if my vehicle is great. I can tell you if it's good so far or if it's a POS, but 100k isn't bragging rights.

That said, Yoder is still revered as reliable and likely is. And back in 07 when they got some real HP out of the 5.7 and a 6 speed, they were top of the game compared to the other big 4. Then 3 of the big 4 slowly passed them. Yoder played it right.
I'd buy a Yoder any day, if it fit my needs and didn't have the Yoder nut humper upcharge in price that all Yoders seem to have.

If this is the new trend in trucks.... Cyber Truck is starting to look better and better.
The old F150 is going to have to keep going a few more years....
