2022 Toyota Tundra will be officially revealed on Sunday

  • New Tundra generation expected to pack a turbocharged V6 engine

  • Tundra TRD Pro will have variable drive modes and leafless rear suspension

  • Upgraded tech to include wireless charging and improved infotainment display

The 2022 Toyota Tundra leaked a while back, forcing Toyota to unveil an official photo of its new-generation full-size truck. Still, Toyota continued with what was likely its original strategy as it unveiled tidbits of information about the new Tundra through a teaser campaign.

These included a look at the TRD Pro model’s distinctive features, variable drive modes, and rugged suspension. We also got a glimpse of the interior that will feature a new infotainment system as well as a power sliding rear window and improved tech such as available wireless charging.

Toyota teased the engine as well, although the Japanese automaker didn’t provide specific info on specs. The rumour mill points to a V6 being offered standard as opposed to a V8, and the new engine could be the same that powers the new-generation Land Cruiser with 409 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque.

This engine would provide similar power numbers to the current 5.7-litre V8 while drastically improving the current Tundra’s dreadful fuel economy numbers.

In any case, we aren’t likely to get anything more substantial on the Tundra until September 19 when Toyota officially pulls the wraps off its new truck. No time has been specified for the unveiling, although that information should come soon enough.
