Why is a Tundra 1794 Edition being sold at a McLaren dealership? I have no idea but they're asking McLaren-like prices for it at $99,996

Check out the listing and see for yourself.

I was also wondering why someone got rid of it after only a few dozen miles.

I see on the seller's website that the price has been lowered $15,000, and it is now listed at $84K. However, since new 1794s and Platinums are starting to show up more and more on local lots, I imagine they'll have to come down at least another 15-20 before they get any takers.

I just put a deposit down on a 1794 4x4, crew max, Off road package, non hybrid, army green, saddle tan interior at MSRP. Dealer says delivery 6-8 months so it may turn into a 2023. I have yet to see a new Tundra on the road.

Hey @NMTRUCKER welcome to the forum! Congrats on placing your 1794 reservation! Have you owned Tundras before?

Looks like the price drop worked because it's no longer listed on their website. I wonder what the final price ended up being.

Do you know what allocations are like at your dealer?
Did you consider any other ways to configure your Tundra before going with that spec?

They are the only Toyota dealer in town and currently have 8 Tundras that are all pending sales. They seem to be moving trucks through their dealership quite well.
I have been looking to buy a new truck since 2019; first I considered the 5th Gen RAM but I really didn’t like any of the motor selections. I live at 8000’ so my current 2003 300 HP Silverado 2500 HD is downgraded to 240 HP. I really like the idea of the twin turbos which should not lose HP as a function of elevation like the ICE.
Also I’m not in a huge hurry. Gives Toyota more time to work out some of the bugs.

No. My first truck was an 1986 F-250 that I kept 23 years (300,000 miles). My second and current truck is a 2003 Silverado 2500HD. My wife has a 2008 Highlander which has been a great dependable vehicle.
I have been following the various Toyota and you tube forums for quite some time. I actually really like the look of the new Tundras and in my “golden” years am looking at a truck that is more comfortable than a 3/4 ton.
Now if I can only figure out all the new electrical gadgetry since my other trucks were really low tech.
