Toyota Teases Coil Spring Rear in 2022 Tundra TRD

New Tundra gets coil springs

Toyota is once again delivering a tease of the upcoming all-new Tundra pickup. This time, it’s a look underneath that shows off TRD underpinnings including an all-new rear suspension design that should offer handling and ride performance upgrades.

Look at that rear axle and you’ll see a pair of coil springs in place of the usual pickup truck leaf springs. It’s massive news for the truck, putting it in the same modern suspension league as the two most recent generations of Ram 1500 as well as the current Ford Raptor. Coil springs in place of a leaf pack offer a more comfortable ride and more rear suspension articulation, though, especially in the Ram, it can lead to slightly lower payload ratings than the class might expect.

Look closely at those bright red rear shocks and you can see a TRD logo (because this is clearly a TRD-trim truck), with what looks to be the start of the words internal and bypass. That suggests the current TRD Pro’s use of Fox 2.5-inch shocks is likely, at least on the TRD model. This doesn’t confirm that all new Tundras will get coils, but it does make that choice more likely.

The truck also showcases the massive TRD-logo front skidplate in silver, while the underside looks to have protection for the fuel tank and much of the driveline. At the front, a beefy-looking front sway bar wears the TRD logo.

We still don’t have a reveal date for the 2022 Toyota Tundra, so expect at least one more teaser and possibly more leading up to Toyota announcing a date and then making a reveal.
