Here's what's coming on the new truck.
In the lead-up to the reveal of the all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra, we've already seen the truck leaked online, which was quickly followed by an official teaser from Toyota. The Japanese automaker is gearing up for the big reveal sometime in the coming months, and it wants to keep the excitement flowing by teasing small details about the new truck. So far, Toyota showed off a new iForce Max engine, a new touchscreen display, and other interior features such as available red seats, a panoramic roof, and a sliding glass rear window.
There are still four more teasers left to go before Toyota shows off the truck, and one of those four has just gone live. This is one of the most detailed teasers yet, revealing a more tech-focused cabin.
"With a host of innovative new features and next-level interior refinement, here's a quick glimpse of just some of what the all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra will offer," Toyota said in a press release. "More to come when the Tundra is fully unleashed this fall."
This latest teaser focuses on three interior elements: the TRD Pro seats, the drive modes, and an available wireless charger. Toyota showed the read leather seats in a previous teaser, but this is our first indication that the bold hue may only be available on the rugged TRD Pro trim level.
The teaser then shows a control knob and surrounding buttons used to control the truck's various modes. From what we can see, drivers can select a tow/haul mode or off-road crawl control mode using the buttons. The rotating knob likely toggles between rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive settings. Finally, the Tundra will have an available wireless charger, a first for this model.
As this was just a teaser, Toyota didn't go into any more detail about these three features. So we'll have to wait to see the interior in full and learn more about specific trims and options. The Tundra is expected to drop its V8 engines in favor of a new twin-turbo V6 producing 450 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. Power will go out through a 10-speed automatic transmission, likely with hybrid assistance.
