With a more aggressive-looking front bumper and cutaways underneath the headlights, the all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra is expected to follow the path of the modern-looking Toyota TRD Pro models.

The Tundra has had minor upgrades for years. But the 2022 edition will be all-new with a bigger payload, larger towing capacities and different interior and exterior looks.

The 2022 Toyota Tundra will be all-new inside and outside.

The new mid-size truck is expected to feature the manufacturer’s latest truck chassis, which will include high-strength steel and other lighter-weight materials. Current 1,730-pound payload and 10,200-pound towing figures will be improved upon.

2022 Toyota Tundra: No More V8

According to internet reports, Toyota will discontinue the Tundra’s V8 with a V6-only powertrain. Less powerful new Tundra models will feature naturally aspirated 3.5-liter, 278 horsepower engines. Higher-end Tundra trims will feature 3.4-liter, 416 horsepower engines. Toyota may also offer a Tundra with a gas-electric powertrain.

Interior and exterior design details haven’t been announced. But the exterior design is expected to have a bolder and larger new grille and a taller hood. The interior is expected to include Toyota’s new version of the latest Entune infotainment technology.

Prices also haven’t been revealed, but an MSRP of approximately $35,000 is predicted. Prices for the new Tundra could exceed $55,000 with the highest level trim and with all available options. A consumer availability date hasn’t been released.

  1. I wanted to buy the NEW Tundra this fall, hoping to get a hybrid, but they pushed it up. Now, seeing this picture I don’t know….. The grill looks like a pacifier. I will wait and hope the appearance get’s better.

  2. What is the point of this article? There is nothing in it that hasn’t been known for the last 6 months. You would have done just as well to just post links to articles that are already readily available with this information. Additionally, the picture you show is a rendering conception showing a possible grill superimposed over a current Nissan Titan body. I’m all for independent journalism, but this is just sheer laziness.
