Hey everyone, new to the Forum. I am heading to Vegas this week to drive the all new Tundra. Other than price and MPG, if you all have any questions or things you want me to check out for you, let me know and I will do my best to get them for you! I don't have a ton of details yet, but I will keep y'all posted!

The main thing I want to know is TRD Pro payload! I want to have a super capable off-road truck that can also haul my toys. My current V8 supercharged F150 has a payload of 1,500 lbs. Hopefully, the new Tundra TRD Pro can best that.

I'd like to know if 35x12.50" tires will fit without any type of aftermarket lift.

I'd also be interested in the 0-60 times with the twin turbo hybrid powerplant.

We need to know what the width of the TRD Pro BBS wheels are and also the width of the other TRD wheels that are offered. This will let us know if we can upgrade to a 35-inch tire without having to change wheels.

I didn't think the battery pack was that big? This was posted from greencarreports.com:

Tundra’s maximum towing capacity has been boosted to 12,000 pounds, with maximum payload up to 1,940 pounds—all numbers likely to be hit by the hybrid.

Is it possible to get leather on the sr5? I assume the only way will be with a premium trd off road package...

I always used an aftermarket option like Clazzio, cheaper than paying for the option at factory/dealer- so in the event they don’t offer for the SR5, atleast there’s an aftermarket option other than Katskinz

Down here in the south we have had the sr5 leather upgrade pkg which was roughly $1,100 option which is port Installed oem leather.

When we had the debacle with lift kits and the pre-collision system last time Toyota told us they would fix it this time. I assume some type of adjustable camera system at the dealer level. Hopefully this is true. We do A LOT of lift kits

I would love to hear what this will sound like?? Will there be a TRD exhaust that improves exhaust tone??? I sure hope they don't have exhaust sounds piped through the stereo like the Raptor... I also agree with the earlier post on payload and towing. I want to make sure that the TRD Pro will have the same payload and towing as the rest. Seems like for the Raptor and TrailBoss they significantly reduce those items when adding off-road capability.

I have a request. Please let us know how the new coil suspension feels and if the new airbag system that raises and lowers the rear end works smoothly. Thanks

The new payload of the hybrid trucks will be reduced. We are likely to see payload of the pro at 1,400 and change I’m thinking 1,455

Payload worries me less than the towing and tongue weight... I do have a plan to tow a toy hauler and often they hover between 11000 and 12000 lbs and around 1200 lb tongue weight.

I don’t have the tongue weight yet. I was trying to get the answers last night but engineering was tight lipped on everything. It won’t be long.
