The new Tundra will have a much larger infotainment screen.
After leaked photos showed the all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra before we were supposed to see it, the company decided to reveal the new full-size truck earlier than planned. Technical details are being kept under wraps until the full debut, but at least we know what the rugged TRD Pro trim looks like.
Now, Toyota is giving us a sneak peek at the 2022 Tundra's redesigned interior. Offering "a front-row seat to adventure in the next-generation 2022 Toyota Tundra," the teaser previews the dashboard, which is dominated by a new, noticeably larger infotainment screen.
We suspect the larger screen will be optional, but the standard screen should still be larger than the current model's. For reference, the current Tundra is offered with a 7-inch touchscreen in its entry-level SR guise, while all other trims are equipped with an 8-inch screen.
It could borrow the touchscreen from the new, high-tech Lexus NX, which features a standard 9.8-inch touchscreen or an optional 14-inch display. Clearly, this is going to be a significant upgrade that will help Toyota compete with the new Ford F-150 and Ram. The top of the new steering wheel is also shown, which has a red stripe at the 12 o'clock position, which leads us to believe this is also a TRD model.
On the outside, the 2022 Toyota Tundra looks more imposing than its predecessor, featuring a prominent blacked-out grille with auxiliary lights. Engine options haven't been confirmed, but Toyota has said the new Tundra will be available with two engines.
One of them will reportedly be a new twin-turbo V6 producing 450 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque, paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission. This will be a welcome boost over the current model's 5.7-liter V8 that generates 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. We should find out more details about the 2022 Toyota Tundra in the coming weeks.
