    Do you guys think year one of the panorama camera feature will transform the truck into the 21 century with lane assist since the Lexus has the software already implemented?

    No. There are many other "basic" features that are 'expected' on vehicles today to bring them into the 21st century. How about as basic as "power/heated" passenger seat?

    I'm not sure I get it. Every other vehicle implements perimeter cameras for the purpose of the automated feature sets such as - lane assist, night vision, blind spot view (not warning), street sign recognition, park assist (view, not sonar), and at the end of the road - automated driving. Are these cameras in the 2020 Taco solely just to be able to manually "see" obstacles? Certainly mounting all these cameras is the gateway for vision automation moving forward. If these features are planned for the near future, i wonder if there will be a sw flash that can allow a 2020 to use it's cameras in an intelligent way, again especially because Lexus currently has the sw already implemented. I realize that the Tacoma isn't a Tesla with flash updates over the air but damn, I hate to have to wait till 2022 to get these obvious coming features. I would love to think that Torota is furiously trying to get the sw written to offer a real "Tech pkg" with real tech features in all camera equipped trucks. In 2019 if you order the "Tech pkg", you get a truck that throws an audible beep if you get too close, or a dash icon lights up if somethings in your blind spot. Ridiculous.

    The results will most likely be 3 groups
    1. The purists will further pile on, and claim their xx model is the besrterest cause it doesn't have any the got dangdid fangdangled gizommetry
    2. Some will dump their 2 month old Tacoma for an OEM LED license plate light
    3. The other will bitch about how expensive new cars are, and how their last car was $1,999.99

    Cameras, and the possible feature set that come with them is the game changer. There is no "Technology" without cameras. Now we're checking the "tech pkg" box every time (purists excluded). Take a look at what the current $800 Tech pkg offers...basically a few useless motion sensors that become totally obsolete with mounted cams. Would I pay $2k instead of $800? Hell I'd pay $1000 to do a grill camera mod and install a rear license plate camera just to help with parking....Why not?

    I agree, I'm not poo pooing tech, I bought a 2019, that some purist believe the safety features are run by Lucifer himself.

    To be technical, it's not motion sensors in your rear bumper - it's radar. And given the poor perspective in the back up camera, i'm happy to have it.
    To get active lane keep assist would require a changeover to electric power steering, at least in any application I've seen

    My 2008 MBZ CL had the same dated "radar". They called it Distronic. It was state of the art back when Obama was first elected. It's goofy now, although better than nothing. Go test drive an RX450. This is where the bar should also be for our $40k trucks, I'm sorry.

    ^ I certainly wasn't saying these Tacomas are state of the art

    Though, fun fact, that hesitance to accept new technology is /precisely/ the reason Toyotas have been historically so reliable

    This technology has been here forever and being utilized in their most reliable line - Lexus. The Frontier is guilty of the same crap. Havnt changed anything in 12 years.

    So do you think the cameras are only intended for view angles and nothing else in '20? I'm asking because I'm trying to see if it'll be worth the wait.

    Hope not, the market has already put the Tacoma in the overpriced range.

    Cameras however are one piece of technology I don't hate when it comes to visability around vehicles. I don't believe cameras are necessary unless all the traffic is going 100+ mph.

    The Tacoma is one of the easiest vehicles to drive.

    Why do you feel you need all the new tech?

    IMHO all it does is raise the initial price of the vehicle and the cost of any future repairs when something inevitably fails/breaks. It also affects modifications like suspension lifts, bumpers ect...
    You don't need cameras, preemptive braking, lane departure warnings or backup sonar if your paying attention to what your doing like you should be.

    My concern are repair cost of these features when they go bad.
