All-New 2022 Toyota Tundra Will Get New iForce Engine

The V8 may not return in the new 2022 Toyota Tundra


  • By the looks of it, it will be a V6.

  • The first all-new Tundra in almost 15 years will debut soon.


There’s a race going on at the moment and pickups of all shapes, sizes, and powertrains are involved. One such participant in this contest is the first all-new Toyota Tundra since the 2007 model year.

Toyota has just released a teaser image of the iForce MAX engine cover that will power their new full-size Tundra pickup. The reason why we presume this new engine will not be a V8 is from the ridges in the plastic cover. Typically, these forms mimic the number of intake runners on a V-shapes engine. As there are only three visible, it’s safe to assume that we are looking at a new V6.

As we know, Toyota’s 3.5-litre V6 currently powers the 2021 Tacoma however, even in its most powerful guise (in the Lexus IS 350), it produces only 311 horsepower. As a full-size pickup, the Tundra will require more power and torque thus turbocharging and electrification are expected for more twisting power and efficiency.

Toyota has not yet divulged when the all-new Tundra will debut however we think it will happen between now and this August’s NYIAS.
