Next-Generation 2022 Toyota Tundra Announced


Toyota Canada announced the 2022 Toyota Tundra. Fully redesigned from the ground up, the 2022 Tundra features a high-strength boxed, steel-ladder frame, aluminum-reinforced composite bed, and fully redesigned multi-link rear suspension. The Tundra boasts a maximum towing capacity of up to 12,000 pounds (5,440 kg) and a maximum payload capacity of 1,940 pounds (880 kg).

The Tundra will come in two different powerplant configurations. A twin-turbo 3.5-litre V6 engine will produce up to 389 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. When paired with the i-FORCE MAX, the result is a combined performance output of 437 horsepower and a whopping 583 lb.-ft of torque. Both configurations will be mated to a new 10-speed automatic transmission.

A new interior will come with an available panoramic roof, heated and ventilated front seats, rear sunshade, heated steering wheel and more. A host of new tech features are found throughout Tundra as well, such as towing aids, off-road enhancements, and an multimedia system featuring wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and over-the-air updates. Two different four-door layouts are available, as well as various bed lengths including a 5.5-foot bed, 6.5-foot bed and an 8.1-foot bed.

The all-new Tundra will go on sale later this year, and pricing will be announced closer to the on-sale date.
