2022 Toyota Tundra: Redesign Info & Release Date

Redesign Info

The Toyota Tundra is expected to see its next full redesign for the 2022 model year. While the automaker hasn't released any official info just yet, Toyota's fleet production schedule says that the 2021 Tundra will remain available to order until mid-July. That could point to a release date for the next-gen pickup sometime this fall. Given that the Tundra has largely remained unchanged since back in 2007, there's no telling at this point just how different the long-running pickup could be once it goes on sale.

In terms of engines, the Tundra faces serious competition. The current truck features a 5.7L V8 rated at 371 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque with the ability to tow up to 10,200 lbs. Meanwhile, newer entrants like the 2021 Ford F-150 now offer a hybrid option, while both the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra offer buyers highly-efficient diesel powertrains with solid capability.

Considering Toyota helped popularize the hybridization of cars, we wouldn't be surprised if a hybrid Tundra became available. In fact, Toyota has recently announced its plans to bring both a hybrid and battery electric vehicle to its pickup truck line, so we may be seeing this offering in the near future. In its current form, the truck is simply out-classed by alternatives 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.

Although an official on-sale date has not been determined, fleet order documentation indicates that production of the 2021 model will continue through the summer. From this information, we expect the next-gen Tundra to arrive some time in late 2021.

We'll be updating this page with the latest information once it becomes available. That will include things like pricing, specs, photos, and more. If there's an opportunity to tell you about pricing & deals for the current Tundra, we'll be sure to provide that as well. Discounts tend to increase right before a redesign, and that seems likely sometime before this fall. Unfortunately for those in the California region, Toyota has scaled back a lot off its current deals and offers in April.
