Toyota is working on the next 3rd generation of the Tundra full-size pickup truck. The latest spy and leaked photos prove this.
The new Tundra will apparently arrive as a 2022 model. It is the first full redesign since 2007, when the truck increased in size to be competitive.
The manufacturer has not officially confirmed the introduction of the all-new Tundra yet, but made hints.
The 2022 Toyota Tundra will feature significant changes inside, out and under the hood. Expect new suspension setup or even an independent rear suspension, and new engine choices, including, perhaps, a hybrid variant.
A twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 may replace the current Tundra’s naturally aspirated 5.7-liter V8 as a top engine option.
The Japanese automaker has produced the Tundra since May 1999. It is Toyota’s second full-size pickup after the T-100 and the first one built in North America.
The current second-generation model was first launched in January 2007. Toyota offers it in 31 configurations.
The model comes in three bed lengths, three cab variants (Regular Cab, Double Cab, Crew Max), three wheelbases, two transmissions, and several special editions and packages (including the TRD Pro Package).
The engine choices are 4.0- and 4.6-liter V6, a 5.7-liter V8. Prices: from $33,675 to $53,050.
Toyota Tundra has its advantages, like the V8 engine packing a punch, lots of standard and available features, plenty of space for passengers in the cabin.
In most other respects, the Tundra lags well behind the competition. Hope the new generation will improve the situation.
