We’re still counting the seconds until the 2022 Toyota Tundra comes out. It was supposed to be revealed in the middle of 2021, and new models were expected to arrive at dealerships by the end of the year. 

Now it’s almost fall, and the new Toyota Tundra is still only teasing us with clues. But the clues reveal a much flashier truck than before. This makes sense because the Tundra was last redesigned back in 2013. 

We got used to seeing its shape and look for almost a decade. But now it’s shaking things up with a new look that’s totally attention-grabbing. The exterior has a boxier shape with a massive grille. 

The large grille features new LED lights under the logo and has two more lights on top of the bumper. The headlights also wrap around the grille and the sides of the truck. It sits on 285/65 Falken Wildpeak all-terrain tires and a new set of TRD Pro wheels. 

Along with new textured fender flares, you can expect a new rear end. The black textured accents from the front bumper match the rear, and the TRD Pro logo can be seen spanning across the tailgate. 

The 2022 Tundra has a bright interior 

The 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro model will have a bright red interior. In case the exterior look doesn’t get enough attention, the red seats will definitely turn heads. The seats also feature TRD Pro embroidery. 

We’re excited to get a glimpse at a few of the tech upgrades. You can see a vertical wireless phone charging pad. This will allow drivers to see who is calling them without having to pick up their phones. 

Another interior shot displays an electrochromic rear-view mirror. This will show a wider rearward area with a longer distance behind the truck. It will improve visibility for hard-to-see areas. 

Also, you can expect the new Tundra to come with a massive new touchscreen that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The massive panoramic moonroof and power rear window is exciting too. 

How much power with the new Tundra have?

Clues suggest that the 2022 Toyota Tundra will come with the new twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine with 409 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. The MAX lettering on the engine is outlined in blue, suggesting that it could be a hybrid powertrain. 

Also, an interior dial suggests that the 2022 Tundra will feature new off-roading modes. Along with hill-descent control, a new Crawl Control feature is on the way. This will act as an off-road cruise control system. 

Pricing for the 2022 Tundra hasn’t been revealed. The 2021 model begins at about $34,025. With all of the upgrades for 2022, it’s safe to expect the price to rise a little. It could start around $35,000 with pricier trims pushing $55,000. We will keep you updated as we learn more.
