2022 Toyota Tundra Rumors Concept – The current Toyota Tundra impresses us enough to earn the MotorTrend Truck of the Year Award… in 2008. Since then, the Japanese automaker has simply put coats of lipstick on its aging dish while competitors such as the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150, GMC Sierra and Ram 1500 received at least one fully-fledged redesign. In other words, the Tundra’s were left in the dust. Toyota, however, ultimately does something about it.
The 2022 Toyota Tundra was interviewed about the company’s latest truck. Reportedly congratulated Toyota New Global Architecture-F (or TNGA-F), the Tundra’s body-on-frame underlying should benefit from greater use of high-strength steel and other weight-saving materials. Like the Ram 1500, we expect the next-gen Tundra coil leaves to adopt instead of the current truck’s leaf rates – to deal with its vibrant rear adhesive. Such a setup will surely improve the truck’s ride quality. Likewise, we expect the 2022 Tundra to improve especially on the outgoing model’s maximum 1,730-pound salary charation and 10,200-pound tower figures. Of course it will have to, with more modern light-duty competitors offering capabilities that far overthrow the dated numbers.
Say goodbye to the Tundra’s V-8 engines because Toyota’s big pickup truck will allegedly enter the world with a V-6 only power station. Look for higher-end Tundra variants to use a variant of the 416 hp 3.4-litre unit found under the hood of the Lexus LS500. Less Tundras will likely use the naturally aspirated 278-hp 3.5-litre V-6 engine of the Tacoma (possibly massaced to produce more than 300 horses).
Given Toyota’s hybrid history, the brand can offer the 2022 Tundra with a petrol-electric hybrid power train option, which places it on the vanguard in a segment that now only hinders electrification. Such a setup will allow the Toyota truck to compete properly with the 2021 Ford F-150 and its available hybrid line.
Despite its relatively radical mechanical changes, the 2022 Toyota Tundra is expected to develop on styling today’s truck. This is no bad thing, since the current Tundra eventually grew into its skin – the original version looked like a quad murder of some kind – and comes across as innocent enough, if not fully attractive. Still, look for the big Toyota truck to incorporate a copper front-end designed a large grid and long hood, providing the new Tundra with a flasher cup.
Inside, the new Tundra Toyota’s latest Entune infotainment technology will be welcomed. This includes an available 12.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a large head-to-head display unit. Toyota’s full safety sense of goodies is certain to be available, too, including automatic brake, advanced radar cruise control, automatic rail center and rail-keeping aid, and much more.
Although we expect Toyota to unveil the 2022 Tundra ahead of mid-next year, we don’t expect the model of Toyota’s San Antonio, Texas, factory and reaching traders until the end of 2021. When it comes to, the 2022 Tundra can sport a base price close to that of the current truck’s approximately $35,000 figure, or the brand can recover lower, less equipment-rich trim levels to the lineup in an attempt to capture fleet or entry-level buyers. No matter what, opt for quad signs, more technology, a larger taxi or bed, and more powerful or advanced powertrain options will increase the truck’s costs. Plan to spend north of $55,000 to get into the 2022 Tundra main trim.
