    This is not accurate at all, but...you have a point. For a Toyota, this is very early. Other than the A90 Supra and LFA, this is rare to see. These spy shots are endorsed by Toyota's marketing arm in this case. Save for the first set of actual spy shots from a casual observer on the freeway, it's been either Toyota tipping them off or simply parading the vehicle around, with pleasure and photographers are well informed where to spot them. Someone at Toyota wants people to see it testing, unlike most Toyota development programs hidden from view. You would easily be seeing the next generation Camry testing right now, as prototypes of that vehicle have been testing for a bit now. Where are they? Hidden on purpose, like most Toyota future models.

    Now for my main gripe, no it is not "too early" for test mules. Not how that works at all. And no, that isn't a Tundra. Has Tundra panels, but that's a 920B mule. I've asked and yes it is. Obvious to everyone, hence being reported as such. Eventually that 920B mule will become the production sheetmetal, running about. I haven't really bothered to look real closely, because after 8 months, prototypes of the real thing should be ready by now. Toyota likely will hide those at closed sites, while trotting out these mules in Tundra skin until sometime in late 2022 before reveal.

    Toyota began testing mules, wearing the production front and rear skins of the 2022 Tundra in late 2018 and got caught on camera in January 2019. Remained that way, until November 2020 when spy shots of the real Tundra were deliberately put into public rotations, to be "caught" on camera. Reveal came 6 to 9.5 months later.
