Not long to wait now.
It's been 14 years since the current-generation Toyota Tundra went on sale, making it one of the oldest vehicles still being sold in the US today. Thankfully, we don't have to wait much longer for the next-generation model to arrive as the current Tundra is long overdue for an overhaul.
Over the last few months, Toyota has drip-feeding us images and details about the new full-size truck, but we didn't know when it will debut - until now. Toyota has announced the all-new 2022 Tundra will debut this week, beginning September 21 at the Motor Bella auto show in Pontiac, Michigan. Toyota says the new Tundra is "born from invisible" but no other new details have been released.
We still have to wait a few more days for the official debut, but there's a lot we already know about the 2022 Toyota Tundra. A few days ago, Toyota previewed the Tundra's redesigned suspension, which will turn over "a new leaf."
While the Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado, and GMC Sierra use leaf springs, the new Tundra will boast a new multi-link suspension setup with coil springs like the new Ram 1500, enhancing the truck's off-roading prowess and comfort. Powering the 2022 Tundra will be a new twin-turbocharged V6 iForce engine that will allegedly produce 450 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque, sent through a 10-speed automatic with hybrid assist.
A second engine option will also be available, but the current model's 5.7-liter V8 will likely be discontinued. We're expecting the second engine option to be a less powerful version of the new V6 iForce.
As for the interior, spy shots have shown the new Tundra will have a high-tech cabin featuring a large touchscreen, a panoramic roof, and available red leather seats for the TRD Pro. Toyota has already shown the new Tundra TRD Pro completely undisguised giving us a clear look at its unique grille, redesigned headlights, and new wheels, but we'll find out more details about the other trims later this week. Anyone in the Pontiac, Michigan area are fortunate enough to get a first look in the flesh. Take advantage.
