I'm still driving my 1998 4Runner. Best vehicle I've ever owned. 190,000 miles and still looks good. What's with the BMW relationship? First I've heard of this. Sure hope it doesn't mean a drop in quality/reliability.

It was the first I’d heard of it too(BMW). Seems bizarre given Toyota’s track history.

I realize that my 4-runner is not advanced in technology as some of its competitors are. However, that’s fine with me.

The only complaint I have (minor) so far is the towing. I have a small 4x8 trailer that I recently towed with it and it was not bad but not great. However, my Jeep was similar.

So far so good, we have about 3,500 miles on it.

Let me know how the mileage is on that Tundra. I have looked at this a bit but it seems that

I really like my one ton diesel (ford) but I am looking at eventually going to a half ton
"every day driver" and just keep my diesel for pulling.

MPG on Tundra's hasn't changed. My 18 Limited does the same as my 08 did. My 08 5.7L did about the same MPG as my 04 4.7L.
Surprisingly the Tundra's we had with the 4.0L V6 towed as well as the 5.7's and got 12MPG towing our tool trailers Vs 8MPG the 5.7's get.

From what I hear, the new leadership is pushing for a 3.5L V6 turbo for the Tundra. It's not set in stone yet but BMW is hoping to improve MPG on the full size platforms to compete with GM & Ford. There is some internal pushback regarding the viability of that concept.



I hope they will finally update the transmission on both the tundra and taco.
