Dash screenshot from a TRD PRO iForce Max video at Overland Expo East. 18.8mpg on this TRD Pro with 1059 off roading miles on the clock. What's also interesting is the scale 0,30,60 indicating a potential average 30mpg in ideal conditions/eco mode for the I-Force Max power train.

This is the most miles I've seen on any demo truck yet. This is really good for off road use.

I have a good friend that works at Toyota. They had a demo for awhile. Said it got 28 in normal driving conditions around dfw. Fingers crossed that is accurate.
What trim? SR5? Assuming hybrid?

Love it!!!
I’m hoping for like 26-28 combined so after adding all overland gear get like 22ish
Me too! I'll go bigger on the tires, and it might even get better than 22. Maybe even 26 after mods 🤞. That'll be my goal.

There is now way to determine what the 18.8 mpg is in reference to. Is it since the last engine start? The last tank of fuel? Is it for all of the 1,059 miles on the odo? The Trip B meter in the right side of the cluster shows 727.5 miles and 18.57 hours - 39mph average. Is it for that period?

Yup there should be “tank” and “total average” -which can be reset. The total
average displayed is likely that trip B 727.5. Difficult to conclude mph from time (does the clock stop while idle/stationary while engine on) But since I have my tinfoil hat on, say the truck’s fuel efficiency were to increase by 10% at 55 mph, you’d get an estimated 21mpg for the same trip.

I wonder what kind of role the iForce max plays at interstate cruising speeds. Mind blown if that electric motor & transmission can sustain the powertrain and get 40 highway/ upwards of 60 with a tailwind slight decline in elevation over a 200mi stretch. The 0 - 30 - 60 cluster does suggest it; wouldn’t surprise me to see some of the sport trims w/air dams & street tires pull off some amazing efficiency

Based on everything I've seen this is being touted as the same hybrid motor setup as what is on the Tundra. If that is the case, the hybrid MPG gains are going to be in stop and go traffic - hybrid won't gain anything at highway speeds. Tundra is 18 city/24 hwy on the gas model and 20 city/24 hwy on hybrid.

You are correct.....Performance will only be there during take off and under load.

Being lighter weight than tundra, the gains should be a lil better, maybe 1-3 mpg more vs what tundra got, albeit a smaller motor. Being single turbo vs twin should help some too.

Also, trd pro tundra drops to 18/20. And from all I've heard/read/seen via reviewers, tundra doesn't see any of those numbers. This could be do to some lead feet as that thing can get up and go on command. Everyone's driving style is different.

Single vs twin doesn't really correlate here - you are comparing a v6 twin non-sequential (effectively a single turbo per bank) to a i4 single (effectively a single turbo per bank).

I could see the increase you are saying just based off of the weight though but again I don't think we are going to see a dramatic increase in highway MPG.

The closest thing that I would attempt to compare the MPG to would be the RX350/RX500h with the same engine. RX350 22 city/29 hwy vs RX500h 27city/28hwy - the caveat here being the transmission is different between the RX350 and RX500h.
