The 2022 Toyota Tundra.
The Toyota Tundra is a pickup truck produced in the United States by the Japanese manufacturer Toyota since May 1999. The Tundra was the second full-size pickup to be built by a Japanese manufacturer (the first was the Toyota T-100), but the Tundra was the first full-size pickup from a Japanese manufacturer to be built in North America. The Tundra was nominated for the North American Truck of the Year award and was Motor Trend magazine’s Truck of the Year in 2000 and 2008. Initially built in a new Toyota plant in Princeton, Indiana, production was consolidated in 2008 to Toyota’s San Antonio, Texas, factory and is the only full-size pickup truck manufactured in Texas.
The shape and proportions of the body of the second generation Tundra are very successful and large pickups do not require any radical transformation of their appearance due to their purpose, so we made the main changes to the front and rear. With the new spy photos of the new Tundra the pickup received a slightly enlarged grille with a new finish, narrower and horizontally elongated LED headlights and a different bumper. The sidewalls have become more prominent due to new stamping on the front and rear fenders. The pickup has also seen a noticeable change in the rear thanks to new headlights with LED elements in the style of the updated Hilux and a different bumper. Tundra also received new side mirrors.
The current Tundra is offered with two petrol engine options. The base is the 4.6-L 8 cylinder which develops 310 horsepower and 439Nm of torque. A more powerful modification is equipped with a 5.7-L V8 engine with 381 horsepower, and 543Nm of torque. The drive can be either rear or all wheel drive with the 6-speed automatic gearbox.
Earlier unconfirmed reports indicated that it will premiere in December 2021 for the 2022 model year, riding on the TNGA-F platform and powered by a twin turbo V6 engine.
