Default 2022 Tundra

Guys anyone have any details or updates on when the new 2022 tundra will be unveiled? Iím hearing it will be available for purchase late fall this year. Keep hearing that this truck will be ďspecialĒ. As it stands right now Iím looking to get out of my 3/4 ton. Iím between the 1500 AT4 Duran ax and this new 2022 tundra depending on what it looks like. Cant deny Toyota reliability but like the 3 liter duramax as well. I keep my vehicles for a long time so it will be a hard decision. What yíall think?

I think it will be available this fall from what I read with the twin turbo hybrid motor currently found in lexus cars but tweaked for towing and payload. Toyota seems to work for reliability. I just think it will be $$$. but what trucks are not these days.

If you do a lot of highway running. The diesel may make sense too.

I talked to someone who works at the production plant here in San Antonio. It will be an major evolution rather than a revolution. The twin turbo V6 is reportedly coming, a tweaked version of what has been used in the full size Lexus sedan. Most of the sheet metal will be new stampings and the interior is reportedly getting a major upgrade.

I'm keeping my eye out for the debut too. Maybe we get lucky and they do a unveiling around the Stupidbowl.

A hybrid twin turbo V6 seems like a lock. I hope it gets solid mpg numbers, especially in the city. We will see. Also curious what the other engine options will be.

I hope it's not ugly!

Any pics you see now are nothing more than artist renderings (guesses). Sometimes they are close, but often are not.

If there's anything that Toyota has come up short of, it's been with the current version of the Tundra pickup. While sales of their Tacoma pickup have been fantastic, they've ridden a 15 year old design in the Tundra and come up with dismal sales figures. Only Nissan's full size truck has worse sales numbers.

But Toyota as a company is better than that. You can bet the next generation Tundra will be a superior truck in quality. But will it be up to the task of beating Ford/GM/Ram vehicles with their extremely strong customer base? And will it have styling that appeals to the mainstream truck buyers?

There's never been a market segment that's so competitive as the light truck market. They're all fantastic vehicles--all brands and all powerplants. And Ford/GM/Ram dealers are all so good at marketing their products too.

But you can bet that shortly Toyota will have a hybrid version of their pickup truck. And if Toyota does anything right, it's they know how to build fantastic hybrid vehicles. (I just bought my second hybrid this month.)

I very much agree that the market will welcome a hybrid option, but it will be a huge mistake if they push that as being the only big horsepower engine option. A point in time will likely come that such is inevitable across the entire market, but we are not there yet.

Can you post a few please? All I've seen are camouflaged spy shots and a very grainy video that supposedly was leaked from a dealer conference.

That is the nature of spy shots.
The video I was looking at was a little older

A big part of Toyota’s inability to sell full size trucks is that they and their dealers don’t know the market. Every time I went to look at a Tundra I have left. You have to know everything about a Tundra before you walk onto the lot. Plus most Toyota dealers are staffed with slimy salesmen in bad dress clothes, you know the type, that want to talk monthly payments, never price. I’ve never had a good experience at a Toyota dealer, so I’ve never owned one.

I agree. Their salesman are terrible, pushy jerks.

I am up for a new truck this year or next. Not sure what route I will go. I dont want a turbo unless its on a diesel so who knows what Ill end up with. Looking at 250's/2500's or another Tundra.

I'm a tundra fan, but not drinking the juice enough to buy a first generation platform.

Thought tundra owners were smarter than that

Normally I'd be with you on that but, I did buy a first gen 7.3L F350 and so far so good. Toyota has had plenty of time to do the R&D and doubtful they release anything problematic.
