2022 Toyota Tundra Teased, Could Arrive This Year
The redesigned pickup is likely to swap its V8 for a twin-turbo V6, and an electric version will follow.
1. Toyota has released a teaser image of the new Tundra pickup truck, which has been redesigned for 2022.
2. It's expected to trade its 5.7 L V8 for a twin-turbo V6, with hybrid and electric powertrains following later.
3. The 2022 Toyota Tundra will be fully unveiled in the next few months, and could go on sale this year.
Toyota has teased the redesigned Tundra pickup truck, revealing its bold front grille. More information is expected soon, and the full unveiling will probably take place within the next few months. The new Tundra could arrive as early as this year as a 2022 model, but nothing has been confirmed by the automaker.
The image released by Toyota exhibits the pickup's bolder grille, a feature that has a large lightbar and three amber lights. The latter could indicate a width of more than 80 inches, and its aggressive lighting resembles many other pickups today.
Unlike the current model, which is powered by a 381 horsepower 5.7 L V8, the revised Toyota Tundra will be obtainable in two different electrified powertrains, an EV and a hybrid. These new variants will compete with the upcoming Ford F-150 Lighting, Chevy Silverado EV, and Ram 1500 plug-in hybrid models. A new rear suspension setup is also possible, and could consist of coil springs, air springs, or an independant setup to replace its currently equipped leaf springs.
