Not sure, other than trying to create a lower entry point. Toyota is lacking engine options compared to the Big 3. Chevy even has that 4 cyl. engine---not that I'd want it, but it's there.I didn't realize the SR model had a different tune than the others: 348hp and 405lb-ft of torque. What is that about?

On the bright side, that tune fits well as a Tacoma/4Runner TRD Pro engine. Would say GX as well, but 550 should be a more aggressive tune than that
The new Tundra Hybrid 4x4 in TRD Pro trim, may well be the most technologically dense vehicle that Toyota has ever sold in the United States. More complex than even the amazing Lexus LF-A supercar or any of the forklifts. More complex, it seems likely, than any other pickup. And that includes the Rivian R1T or any other all-electric truck. This thing is packing.
The 2WD drivetrain cannot handle the full torque? 650N.m is a lot for a RWD vehicle. 405lb.ft is exactly 550N.m so it makes sense for GX"550".That was my thought as well. I bet that is the "550" tune that the GX gets.
But... I just don't understand what's different or why? SR trim is a pretty small % of sales for an entirely different tune of the engine.
