We have more new photos of the upcoming 2022 Toyota Tundra including a good look at the front-end design, new lights and a picture of the rear tailgate. We compare this new acquisition to the recent spy photos we purchased to get a clearer picture of the 2022 Tundra.
In our most recent video on the 2022 Tundra below, we compare the dealer pictures to the spy photos. The lights and design lines seem to match up pretty well.
As we stated yesterday, we expect to see a hybrid twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6, and there is a lot of speculation about the death of the 5.7-liter V-8.
Also, there are the ever-present rumors and demand from fans for a diesel Tundra as well. A recent trademark filing seems to indicate this could happen.
Next, we expect a new interior complete with a 12-inch navigation screen to help the truck be more competitive in the segment.
Payload and towing will likely increase as more advanced metals are used and Toyota works to light-weight their truck — a very common practice these days.
Fuel economy is going to be the largest driving force behind offering a hybrid as well as a lighter Toyota Tundra truck. We had a chance to drive and tow with the new 2021 Ford F-150 hybrid and if Toyota can come close to Ford’s EPA number of 24/24 city/highway, it would be a big improvement over the current 13/17 for the Tundra.
The truck will be a 2022 model, and it is slated to be unveiled in the spring of 2021 and will be on dealer lots in the fall.
More spy photos and computer generated images mean a new Tundra is getting closer to coming out. As times goes on, we expect to see even more images and leaked information on powertrain and other details.
Toyota is historically tight-lipped on future product news, so don’t expect to know everything until it is officially unveiled.
