Hopefully yours comes in faster than my GMC. still no ETA for me.
Im at 10.9 in my 17 Tundra so could be worse
The tundra’s are like the old dodge’s that had a v10 in them. Could pass anything but a gas station.
Luckily gas is super cheap, so it's no biggie
Well I got a VIN and a May 9 production date which is about 2+ months earlier than I was told to expect. Could get bumped for sure, but crazy to have a VIN after 2 days based on what I’ve read.
My window sticker has populated confirming no forced changes to my order have been made due to commodity restraints. Scheduled for production end of next week. If my truck doesn’t fall into a dreaded chip hold or get stuck in a rail yard for weeks on end, I could take delivery in mid to late June. Which would be awesome because if I take delivery before July 5, I’ll get another $1,000 off for an incentive I didn’t know about when I ordered (since it was post-order, I won’t get the benefit of it if it expires before I take delivery).
My salesman said I should get my GMC next month but could not specify a date, he said it was "scheduled" at the factory for June 1st whatever that means. I guess that's the day they start assembly.
It is so lame that they don't have step bars/running bars on Limited 2022 Tundras. Pregnant wife and mother in law can hardly get in my truck. Guess I eventually am gonna have to get OEM or after market ones installed.
If you have a VIN and dealer order number try using https://ordertrack.app/ . I've found it updates more quickly than the Ford order tracker; not sure where it pulls the info from or if it would be a similar benefit for the GM order, but it's worth a try.
Averaging 14mpg in the Tundra. It was 13. Did some decent road trips last month. Went to 14.4. Now back down to 14 after city driving.
i was in a organized crime conference and they showed a video of one of those Auto/rail terminals getting broken into. One guy got a dually and rammed the gate from the inside a few times before it busted open and then 50 people sprint through, a couple minutes go by and then cars and trucks just start flying out of the gate.
it was wild
Hopefully that doesn’t happen to your truck, but it reminded me of that
Sounds like you should be driving a Camry
Mini vans are easy to get into
Tacoma just turned 100k miles driving back from Augusta this weekend. Guess it’s finally broke in
I’ve had the itch pretty bad to move to a 3/4 ton here lately. No real justification besides I want one. I pull a trailer a fairly good bit but usually nothing I can’t really do with my current Sierra 1500, although every now and again I’ll pull equipment or materials heavy enough that my truck doesn’t really like it. The 23’s should be out this summer and I think I’m going to wait and see what redesigns they have. Looks like F250 will be getting a relatively large makeover, GMC HD isn’t changing much and Ram 2500 is somewhere in the middle.
I miss the size, stance, and look of my 250. I do not miss the ride, parts costs, or fuel bill. I don't think I could reasonably talk myself into another on purely on gas/diesel prices right now.
I have no business owning a 3/4 ton (other than plans to potentially purchase a travel trailer in the next few years), but I looked pretty hard at a F250. Ultimately decided to go with the F150 for daily driving and garaging purposes. But I get the draw, even if it’s unnecessary.
Garaging is the issue for me. My truck sits at about 6 ft 7.5 inches. Seems all the garages around here are right around 6’6 to 6’8. A couple of them pucker my you know what driving through.
My Tundra won't fit into my garage. The door hits it. I tried once
We have a 1 ton Silverado 3500 for towing large stock trailers. I have to admit, firing up that much power is fun as hell, and long wheelbase driving is refreshing despite the firm as hell suspension. It's also wildly impractical since we're not full-time ranchers and work jobs in the city, so it's a 3rd vehicle for us. We were Ford truck owners, but got burned badly...twice...once literally.
The owners manual for 2022 Tundra for 4WD section sucks. You would never be able to engage 4wd following it’s directions. Here is how it actually works after watching youtube videos which still dont give you directions that will make it work. I’ve never had a 4wd vehicle before so some of this is completely newb and I’m not sure how other vehicles work but you have to be in drive and actually moving to engage 4H. And you can’t get to 4L without first being in 4H. I’m not sure how all this would work if you were actually stuck because obviously if you’re stuck you cant move and thus I guess you can’t switch to 4H. Hopefully if you at least hit the gas it would allow you to switch over to 4H even if you werent technically moving. Here are the directions that actually get it to work. Anything else will result in your 4H flashing and not engaging or if you don’t do 4L properly 4H will flash and you’ll get a continuous beeping:
To Switch to 4H
-put in drive
-start moving forward or backwards
but you have to be in motion THEN switch to 4H
-sometimes takes a second to switch. You might have to throw it in reverse before it will engage
TO SWITCH TO 4L
-first you have to be in 4H before switching to 4L
-go to neutral
-switch in 4L. It will engage and your rear vehicle monitors etc will turn off you’ll see the lights on your dash for that. You’ll actually physically feel a bump under the vehicle as the drive system switch over to 4L.
that sounds like a system that was standard in 1990s vehicles.
After you got out and locked in the hubs.
I know our old ford you had to shift out of 4wd, unlock the hubs, then go in reverse to disengage 4wd.
On other modern 4WD vehicles can you mostly just hit a button and engage 4H and 4L without all the nonsense the Toyota makes you go through?
To go into 4L I have to go to neutral then select it. But 4H or auto-trac is just turn the nob while driving.
Push button for 4h at pretty much any time I want and it shifts in
4L requires neutral
2021 chevy here
I don’t think that’s true if the vehicle has a true 4L (low range gear) I think they have stopped adding 4L to all 4x4 cars. 4H just engages the front wheels and functions similar to AWD. 4L is not for on pavement driving and not for anything over slow speeds.
my 1998 blazer had push button 4H and 4L. You could engage 4H on the fly. 4L required stopping and putting into N first.
may dads z-71 Colorado is the same way
Also, just because you have 4x4 doesn’t mean you’re diffs are lockable. You also don’t need 4x4 to have a locking diff. My dads mid 2000s 2wd sierra had the g80 (which blew up once driving down the road after a red light) and you can get the ford one in the fx2 package. GM doesn’t require and off road package. G80 is an add on and standard on other trims
In the '21+ F150s you just turn a dial to shift between 2H, 4H, or 4Auto (available on Lariat and up, and functions similarly to AWD system) just while driving at any speed. To shift in and out of 4L you use the same dial, but need to be going 3MPH or less, and be in neutral.
I'm pretty sure every vehicle with 4L needs to be under 5mph
yes you have to be going slow to go into 4L because fun fact if you switched to 4L at speed the transmission would fall out of your truck
I just don’t understand: when I’m passing on the interstate, why can’t I access 4L for the added traction?
I don't understand why Toyota is making this so difficult. I should be able to drop my transmission in the middle of I-75 if I want.
4A is clutch for changing road conditions where you don’t quite need 4H
The 4L thing isn't what confused me. Having to be in neutral then switch to 4L seems pretty normal. Just overall the directions in general in the user manual were not accurate.
Truck arrived at the dealership last night, I’m hopefully going down on Friday to pick up.
Nice truck, 36 month lease?
Look at me post
2022 501a Lariat Ecoboost 145" SCrew with FX4 and tow packages and basically every available option expect a moon roof. Did a lot of research, and I love this thing. Mods include tint, bedliner, bed cover, rear wheel well liners, 7" antenna, and a screen protector for the infotainment screen (going on today).
Congrats, really good lookin truck.
Didn’t realize the oversized infotainment was an option upgrade.
12 inch is standard on XLT and up. Lighting has the 15 inch tablet style on the Lightning Lariat and Platinum.
Are all trim levels being delivered now?
Yes, but chip restrictions and option removals are a thing. You can’t order the truck I got anymore. Only chance is to find one on the lot. I got insanely lucky to have ordered precisely when I did; ordered earlier and my wait would have been two or three times my two months from order to deliver, later and I’d be losing options like 360 camera. King ranch and platinum have lost the special messaging seats which, aside from some styling queues are really what differentiates it from a Lariat.
Should also add, 22 orders are closed. 23 orders open in July or August, but 22s will continue to be built through October, but with forced feature removals. Literally two build weeks after mine were subject to feature removals that would have impacted me. 23 models are expected to have permanent feature deletion.
My antenna is way bigger than that
Question as I am about to switch my car seat to forward facing, is there a latch behind the seat of the super crew or did you tether it to the loop in the middle seat from each side?
Haven’t looked at the manual yet or even really looked at the seats in mine. Figured you obviously figured it out.
Latch for sure.
Question. Did you buy or lease this?
