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 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.

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.
