2022 Toyota Tundra Preview
After leaked photos of its all-new, full-size light-duty pickup truck surfaced on the Internet, Toyota decided to issue an official image of the redesigned 2022 Tundra TRD Pro. The studio shot depicts the truck in white, wearing matte black 18-inch wheels wrapped in 285/65 Falken Wildtrak all-terrain tires, large overfender trim, rock rails, and bold front styling with lots of lighting elements.
Make of it what you will.
Rumors claim the new 2022 Toyota Tundra will ditch its thirsty V8 engine in favor of V6 powerplants and available turbocharging. A hybrid is also likely, potentially marketed as an “iForce Max” engine. In any case, one of the new engines will be getting that designation.
Naturally, 4-wheel drive will be available, and the popular TRD Pro will continue with its design, suspension, and off-roading capabilities. In addition, Toyota will likely continue to offer free scheduled maintenance for the first two years or 25,000 miles.
Automotive News reports that the new Tundra is actually bigger than its predecessor, which is somewhat hard to believe. Of course, it was already massive and equipped with a huge cab, but reportedly it isn’t just the grille that has grown.
So far, Toyota has successfully kept the cabin design a secret. Still, the latest teaser image shows a red centering line for the steering wheel, a 12-inch infotainment touchscreen display, huge windshield pillar grab handles that will undoubtedly be necessary to climb aboard, and JBL tweeter speakers. The view out includes the giant black plastic hood trim that accompanies the TRD Pro model.
Expect a full complement of Toyota technology on the new 2022 Tundra, while a version of Toyota Safety Sense is sure to be standard. Additionally, the infotainment system will be available with navigation, premium JBL sound, and Toyota’s comprehensive connected services plans related to safety, remote access, Wi-Fi, and more.
Toyota will build the new 2022 Tundra in its San Antonio, Texas factory. However, prices and a release date are unavailable as this article is written.
