All-New 2022 Toyota Tundra Expected By End Of This Year

The current Toyota Tundra is automotive prehistory but that will change with the new model finally arrives


  • This will be the truck’s first redesign in 14 years.

  • The excitement on behalf of Toyota is palpable.

  • Production is expected to begin in the late fall of 2021.


Early on in the current Toyota Tundra’s life cycle, it was a capable and well-thought-out full-size pickup. It was never going to overtake the American trucks but it was an option. This outlook changed in the early 2010s as the competition utterly eclipsed the Tundra and today, it’s all but completely forgotten. This is all about to change if we’re to believe the brand.

In fact, Robby Findlay, chairman of the Toyota National Dealer Advisory Council, is reported by Automotive News (subscription required) to have said the following: “The new Tundra is the most exciting thing we’ve had in the last five-plus years. I mean, we’ve been waiting so long for a new Tundra; we know the potential of that full-size-truck market. And from everything that they’re telling us, we’re going to have the best in class. I mean, we’re going to have a world-beater, and it’s going to be fun to really go toe-to-toe with the domestic trucks.”

According to the source story, the new 2022 Toyota Tundra to be the first vehicle to get the new global body-on-frame platform. After the Tundra, the Sequoia (2022), 4Runner (2023), and Tacoma (2023) will follow.

Powertrain-wise, the V8 and 6-speed autobox will be replaced by a turbocharged V6 and an 8-speed (or more) automatic transmission. As well, the new pickup should be equipped with a number of current must-have interior and driving technologies.
