2021 Toyota Tundra Concept Review – If our car relies on the latest rumors, it looks like the Toyota Tundra 2021 will finally come redesigned. The oldest trucks in the full size segment still make some pretty respectable sales figures, but definitely need fresh blood. People have eagerly waited for a new generation over the years, as it is currently up since 2007.
Of course, there were some updates in the meantime, but even a mid-refresh cycle was five years ago. Therefore, it is not difficult to make the conclusion that the redesign of the Toyota Tundra 2021 will bring a lot of changes. However, keep in mind that the new model is still far from the final stages of development. So, the following paragraphs are nothing more than a speculation product. We will not discuss anything specific, but rather speculate on some common things. Anyway, expect to see a new model about two more years.
This generation is driving for almost 12 years, which is too long, even for a pickup truck. Because of this, we rely on a completely new platform. The company has just completed the process of updating most popular passenger vehicles, such as RAV4, Corolla, and Camry, and we are now waiting to see things new in trucks and SUV departments.
Of course, the Toyota Tundra 2021 will continue with the traditional body-on-frame layout. However, we relied on a completely new architecture, which would be used in the next generation Land Cruiser and Sequoia. Compared to current models, we expect significant weight savings and overall efficiency improvements. Of course, better handling and overall driving experience is also expected, although we have to say that the current model is good enough, regardless of age.
Of course, we relied on a completely new style as well. The current Model may be old, but it still looks pretty good. That was mainly because of the facelift, which happened five years ago. However, we have no doubt that this redesign will bring a lot of new things in terms of aesthetics. Unfortunately, we have to wait some more time to get some spy photos, because the new models are still in the early stages of development.
Some reports also suggest the possibility to view the concept version of the Toyota Tundra 2021 first, presented on some major car exhibits. Anyway, we hope to see a slightly more angular approach, which is pretty much the industry standard today. In addition, we are quite confident that Toyota will restore a single cab body style in this offer, as the current version is only available in Double Cab and CrewMax versions.
This is the area where the current model shows an old design. The dashboard layout looks pretty outdated for today’s standards, not just in terms of style, but in terms of material quality as well. The new generation of Chevy Silverado and especially the 1500 Ram is characterized by a pretty fancy interior, full of soft touch materials and the latest gadgets. On the other hand, Tundra is currently largely dependent on harsh plastics but is very durable. This should be changed if Toyota wants to make this truck competitive.
In addition to the new dashboard design, we look forward to seeing the whole palette of the latest technological items on offer. Also, we hope that the new Toyota Tundra 2021 will continue with the large cabin in the offer, characterized by plenty of space in both seat rows. As we’ve already mentioned, the single cabin layout should also be in the offer.
The machine is probably one of the biggest problems of the current generation. It uses the well-known 5.7-liter V8 engine, which is very durable and reliable, offering a lot of power. However, it also features some outdated technology solutions, so the MPG rating is the lowest in its class. According to a recent report, the new Toyota Tundra 2021 will probably retain this engine, but with significant modifications to get the best fuel savings possible.
In addition, we rely on smaller and more efficient options in bidding, as well as diesel options. The 2021 Toyota Tundra diesel will probably come with the familiar V8 5.0 liter of Cummins. This one is good for about 310 horsepower and a 555 pound-foot torque. This machine should ensure a much better fuel economy, but also a better traction capacity.
Toyota Tundra 2021 is still far from production. However, recent reports suggest that the new model will enter the market in about two years. When it comes to pricing, it will be lower compared to current models, mainly due to the fact that a single cab version will be offered once again. The base Model should be about 30,000 dollars.
