A redesign for the Toyota Tundra has been confirmed for the 2022 model year. While the automaker has only indicated that the all-new Tundra will be coming soon, Toyota's fleet production schedule says that the 2021 Tundra pickup will remain available to order until at least mid-July. That could point to a 2022 Tundra release date sometime this fall.
An early leak revealing the 2022 Tundra's design prompted the automaker to take the wraps off in late June. While specs and output haven't been announced, the truck's exterior appears significantly more aggressive than the outgoing generation. The early reveal (above) involves a higher-spec 2022 Tundra TRD Pro in a SuperCrew configuration.
In terms of engines, Toyota plans to introduce the i-Force Max name, although horsepower and towing remain a mystery. This past spring, the brand revealed plans to introduce hybrid and 100% electric powertrains to its truck lineup. Meanwhile, alternatives like the F-150 already offer a hybrid option, with a new EV on the way called the F-150 Lightning.
The current Tundra has largely been unchanged since 2007 and faces serious competition, with just a 5.7L V8 rated at 371 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque and ability to tow up to 10,200 lbs. In contrast, both the Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups also offer buyers diesel powertrain choices with a blend of solid towing capability and impressive fuel economy advantages.
In its current form, the Tundra is arguably out-classed by competitors with newer features, turbocharged engines, and more options for both work and play. After all, this is now a segment with $80,000 pickups, optional sleeper seats, and power-packed options like the RAM TRX. Will the redesigned Tundra be able to compete at the same level?
We'll be updating this page with the latest pricing, specs, photos, and more once they become available. If there's an opportunity to tell you about pricing & deals for the current Tundra, we'll provide that as well. Discounts often increase before a redesign, but we think the odds of Tundra rebates improving are slim amid a supply shortage.
