Toyota intends to update its model lineup considerably by 2022. Twelve all-new or refreshed models will be introduced in the next three years.
The Japanese auto giant made several premieres at the motor shows in Shanghai and New York hold this month. The new Highlander and C-HR Electric are among them. It is just a beginning of a large-scale update of Toyota’s model range.
As announced, the carmaker presents twelve fully new or redesigned models within the next 3 years. This list already included the Corolla, RAV4, and Supra recently unveiled.
Among the future arrivals, there will be a new-generation Toyota Tundra pickup truck on a completely new platform. It will serve then as a base for the next generation Tundra, Tacoma, 4Runner, and the Sequoia.
According to preliminary information, Toyota will launch the new Tundra next year, followed by the next-gen Sienna minivan. Some spy photos of the latter are already available.
Toyota’s spokesmen announced a new ‘intermediate’ model to sit between the RAV4 and CH-R crossovers, especially taking into account the lack of the Toyota C-HR with all-wheel drive that adversely affects its sales.
The new SUV will likely be a production version of the FT-4X concept presented in 2017 at the New York Auto Show. No wonder they say at Toyota the production of such a model is 75% ready.
