Because of the pandemic, the 2022 Toyota Tundra has to be delayed. However, the new generations of the Toyota Full-Size Pickup truck will arrive toward the end of 2021. New Tundra is based on New Toyota F1 Architecture and gets a Brand New V6 Hybrid twin Turbo to replacing the old aging V8 Tundra Engine.
Toyota Tundra is one of the oldest pickup trucks that have been popular since the first release. But, in recent years Toyota Tundra can’t keep up with its rival because of the old design and poor performance. So, we can hope something new in this newest Toyota Tundra.
Though it’s not decided yet, mostly the main change in the newest Toyota Tundra is its performance. Other than that, it’s likely that this car will have a new design.
Not only the interior design that always becomes the downside of this car but also the exterior. As we know, the Toyota Tundra before this version had outdated design both exterior and interior.
So, having it redesigned will delight the consumers and make it can compete with its rivals.
2022 Toyota Tundra Redesign
We can hope on the 2022 Toyota Tundra to renew its exterior design. for me, this New Tundra looks like the New Highlander and Rav4 combined. One of the changes that may we dan see is the LED headlamps. It will have c-shaped daytime running light signatures with high-mounted main beams. There is also a chrome trapezoidal-framed grille that is detail but still impressive.
On the side of this car, you will see a simple design, still, you can get a muscular vibe from it. Finally, at the backside of the car, there is a vertical LED taillight and integrated bumper steps. With those changes, surely the exterior will be more modern and no more outdated.
2022 Toyota Tundra Interior
Toyota Tundra’s design has been the problem that keeps away the consumers. The reason is clear. Up until now, there is no drastic change in the interior and exterior design. So, compare to its competitors, the previous version was outdated.
That’s why in this newest version there will be changes in the interior. The most notable thing that differs this car from the previous version is the features in this car.
In the latest Toyota Tundra, you will see a large touch-screen, 12.3 inches. Furthermore, the touch-screen is integrating with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It will help you to drive more comfortably.
Not only Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, but this car also joins with Amazon Alexa. The newest Toyota Tundra also install the 4G WiFi connectivity, so you can stay online anywhere. To make the driver and passengers more comfortable, there is a JBL audio system as an entertainer.
The features in the interior are not the only thing that will change in the latest Toyota Tundra. The safety system of this car will also get updated.
Now, the soon-release Toyota Tundra will have a suite of driver assistance ance. With this feature, you will know the location of pedestrians thanks to low-light pedestrian detection. Also, there will be radar cruise control, front&rear park assist, and then road sign detection.
With all of those safety features, you can drive safely and decrease your worries.
Engine Specs, V6 i-Force Max Hybrid
Will Next-Gen 2022 Toyota Tundra Make a Good Hybrid?
Although the performance of Toyota Tundra has been good from the start, there is still room for improvement. The current Tundra uses 5.7-liter i-Force V8 that can produce 381/hoursepower and 401 lb-ft. This engine is paired with six-speed manual transmission.
So, for the new Tundra, there is a possibility that there will be a change in the engine. The most possible one is the long-rumored twin-turbo 3.5-liter gas V6 hybrid. A hybrid would certainly increase the gas mileage in a next-gen Tundra. It will more than likely result in higher lower end torque as well.
With this engine, it can produce 450 horsepower and 500 lb-ft. Also, with this engine, it will resolve the problem with low-fuel capacity, as it can achieve more than 30 mpg thus make it more efficient. This Full-Size truck is truly strong, tundra can tow up to 10,200 lbs.
Other than the engine, you can also expect the suspension to change. The newest Tundra hopefully changes the six-speed transmission with the 10-speed automatic transmission. If it indeed changes, then the ride comfort will significantly improve.
Still, about the suspension, the newest Tundra will also have air suspension options. Moreover, this will come with dynamic torque vectoring. The multi-terrain and trail modes that come with this torque are made especially for you who go off the beaten track.
2022 Toyota Tundra Price and Release Date
The best part of this truck is the cost. This car is super affordable. Current Toyota Tundra’s price starts at $33, 575 and we expect that the newest generation will not differ too much.
As for the releasing date, due to the Pandemic, it will be delayed. Then, this car will have a debut in the fourth quarter next year.
In recent years, the Toyota Tundra can’t be competitive against its rival. That’s why with 2022 Toyota Tundra that will release soon, many people hope it will regain its glory. So, let’s see what this car will offer to its consumers.
