The hype around the 2022 Toyota Tundra is real. ToyotaDistinguished full size Truck It hasn’t had a serious overhaul in years, but this upcoming model promises big changes, including new engine options and (now that the automaker has revealed an official image) a major design update, too. Here’s what we know so far.
A major overhaul of the tundra is planned; Its last major update came over a decade ago. Toyota has been keeping most details under wraps, but that hasn’t stopped speculation about what the 2022 model will achieve. Recently leaked images surfaced online, which led to the automaker finally sharing an official image of the truck in TRD Pro specs:
The photo shows a redesigned front end with an aggressive black grille and multiple integrated light bars, along with black TRD Pro wheels and subtle red accents. Buyers can expect major changes under the hood, too, according to Car driver. For years, the Tundra ran a 381-hp V8, but the 2022 model will likely drop the V8 in favor of a new twin-turbo V6 producing more than 400 hp. Based on Toyota’s recently released under the hood shot, some anticipate that a hybrid powertrain will also be available in 2022. The “Max” in the logo has a blue outline, which is a design reference Toyota generally maintains for its hybrids:

The current Tundra uses leaf springs at the rear, but Car driver He speculates that the new truck could come with finer coil springs, air springs, or perhaps even an independent rear setup. The six-lug wheels shown in the photo above may also indicate increased payload and towing capacity, according to gear patrol (The current tundra has five-wheeled wheels.)

Other than that, we don’t have many details on what the truck’s interior will look like, or how much this new device will cost. We will update this post with more information as it is released.
