The new Tundra will be the company’s first all-electric truck, and they’re not stopping there. Toyota plans on making more electric cars in the future as well to keep up with their aggressive environmental goals.
The 2022 Toyota Tundra will be driving on the newest truck chassis of the company. Toyota New Global Architecture-F (or TNGA-F), the body-on-frame base of Tundra, has recently been developed, and it can benefit from increased use of high-strength steel and other materials that save weight.
Like the Ram 1500, we expect the next generation of Tundra springs to go with a live rear axle instead of the existing truck’s leaf springs. This configuration would certainly increase the riding efficiency of the vehicle.
We hope that the lither 2022 Tundra will significantly increase the outgoing models‘ maximum payload of 1,730 pounds and to estimates of 10,200 pounds. Of course, it would need to deliver capacities well beyond those dated numbers for more advanced, light-duty rivals.
Are we finally hearing Toyota talk about "Tundra" and "Hybrid" at the same time? I think so! https://t.co/xBolp3qw3B@Toyota @ToyotaMotorCorp @torquenewsauto #tundra #toyota #LetsGoPlaces #toyotatundra pic.twitter.com/50wR1KtvBx

2022 Tundra Twin-Turbo
Tell your goodbye to the Tundra’s V-8 engines, as Toyota will be entering the world with just a V-6 powertrain. Try the higher-end Tundra models to use the 3.4-liter 416-hp engine under the Lexus LS500 hood.
The Tacoma’s naturally aspired 278-hp V-6 engine is probably employed by the smaller Tundras (possibly massaged to produce more than 300 horses). Given Toyota’s hybrid experience, the 2022 Tundra can supply an option for a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain and is at the forefront of this electrification segment.
This set-up will allow the 2021 Ford F-150 and the available hybrid drive truck to perform perfectly. The 2022 Toyota Tundra expects to adapt to the style of today’s truck, including its very radically changed mechanisms.
Nevertheless, the massive Toyota truck is looking for a brasher front end configuration that includes a large grill and high hood, which gives the current Tundra a brighter cup.
2022 Toyota Tundra Date of Sale And Price
While Toyota expects to unveil the 2022 Tundra by mid-2022, the Toyota platform will not roll out of the San Antonio Toyota plant in Texas until 2021.
If it arrives, Tundra 2022 may carry a price of about $35,000 near the current figure of the vehicle. The brand may reintegrate lower, less-equipment-rich timing levels into the lineup to the captain, the fleet, or entry-level purchasers.
However, the truck would cost more when using the four-wheel-drive system, more technology, a bigger cab or bed, and more efficient or more sophisticated drive configurations. Plan to pay $55,000 north to the pricier trimesters of 2022 Tundra.
