2022 Toyota Tundra Hero 
Join Our Waitlist

Tough as nails, dependable through it all, a new generation is on its way — welcome to the 2022 Toyota Tundra redesign. Bringing a get-it-done attitude in a full-size package since its debut in 1999, the Tundra has only gotten better since then. Unstoppable engineering, more desirable creature comforts, and more power are just the start. Off-road dominance also joined that list along the way, and now the 2022 Toyota Tundra redesign is poised to take all of the above attributes further than they’ve ever gone before.

Already competitive in the full-size truck world, you’ll find all the practical capabilities, reliability, and overall specs make our Toyota Tundra lease deals as attractive as can be. When the 2022 redesign arrives, expect the attractiveness of a Tundra lease to go up exponentially. That’s also because of a stylish new exterior, powerful engine, and ultra-capable suspension setup; we’ll take you through these details, along with everything else to expect.

The 2022 Toyota Tundra Redesign — From the Outside

First thing’s first, the 2022 Toyota Tundra redesign is set to bring a new third generation for the truck. With the second generation introduced in 2007 and running up to today, this brings huge change to the table. That starts with the exterior, as you’ll first be greeted by a massive new modern grille. Subtle details like a textured bumper ledge with “Tundra” embossed in and three grille-integrated lightbars set the TRD Pro model apart, while a set of three amber lights atop said grille suggest an increase to over 80 inches of vehicle width. Meanwhile, sharp and sleek LED lights round off the front end with a properly aggressive style.

Aside from the front, you’ll find similar modern sleekness continues throughout the body and bed. New wheel designs join the party, too, with exclusive TRD Pro designs that look like they’re ready for some proper off-road fun. From revised fender flares to aggressive air ducts, the 2022 Toyota Tundra redesign brings some distinctly awesome new style for this new generation.

The New 2022 Toyota Tundra Engine, and Potential 2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid

Let’s start with a beloved engine you’ll find with a new Toyota Tundra for sale in Dallas — the venerable, reliable, and super smooth 5.7-liter V-8. Currently, it’s not known whether it’ll stick around and what trim levels may use it. We do know that a new and exciting engine will serve as the main choice in the 2022 Tundra. Specifically, this should be the “iForce MAX” 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 that is found in the 2022 Land Cruiser. While this new Land Cruiser won’t be available stateside, that engine should be very exciting.

That’s because, despite the smaller size, the iForce MAX V-6 pumps out a hefty 409 horsepower, with 479 lb-ft of torque to motivate the 2022 Land Cruiser. Whether or not that power will increase will have to wait for the 2022 Toyota Tundra release date to arrive. We do know that those specs listed for the Land Cruiser are already 28 horsepower and 78 lb-ft of torque more than the 5.7-liter V-8 in a 2021 Tundra.

One more thing we aren’t sure of, some sources speculate that the iForce MAX V-6 will be used in a hybrid powertrain setup. It’s unconfirmed but could bring an eco-friendly first for the nameplate.

The New 2022 Toyota Tundra Interior

The excitement continues on the inside. We’ll have to wait for the 2022 Toyota Tundra release date to approach for a complete look, but a high-quality interior redesign and several great additions are on their way. Among these, a new, larger touchscreen with Apple CarPlay® connectivity, wireless device charging, a panoramic sunroof, and more will be available. The off-road conquering trim will also continue with the 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro, offering advanced features like off-road driving modes that include crawl control, hill-descent control, and more. Aesthetic elements like red upholstery and TRD Pro badging join the interior fun too.

Suspension Changes for the 2022 Toyota Tundra Redesign

The 2022 Toyota Tundra will ditch rear leaf springs for a solid rear axle and coil spring setup. That combines both on-road smoothness with massive hauling and off-road capabilities. That should spell an increase for payload capacity, but by how much remains to be seen. Taking the off-road side further, the TRD Pro model will equip Fox dampers for greater effect.

The 2022 Toyota Tundra Release Date

Frankly, we don’t know exactly when the 2022 Toyota Tundra release date will take place. As an estimate, though, we believe that by the end of 2021, you’ll see this next-gen Tundra hitting dealerships.

That said, the iForce MAX V-6 will be used in the Tundra, and in its current use powering the 2022 Land Cruiser, it uses a twin-turbo setup making 409 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque — more than the current V-8 makes.
