Updated Toyota Tundra: All That Is Currently Known

The full-sized Toyota Tundra first entered the market more than 20 years ago and was able to win the title of automotive relic. The direct rival to the Ford F-150 is aimed at the US market. Over this period, the Tundra has undergone two planned updates, and now the Japanese manufacturer is ready to release the third generation of the model to the market.

The updated Toyota Tundra has not yet debuted. However, thanks to photos and leaked information from the manufacturer, some details about the new car have become known. So, the third-gen pickup will be based on the new Toyota F1 platform.

As a result, the Tundra will become something in between with the RAV4 and the new Highlander. The pickup will get a radiator grille with a trapezoidal chrome plated frame, C-shaped LED headlights and taillights in the Cadillac’s style, extended fenders, black body elements, as well as an electric rear door and a built-in bumper step.

The car’s interior will become more spacious and technological. It will be equipped with a multimedia system with a 12.3-inch touch screen that supports Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, 4G Wi-Fi and a JBL audio system. The pickup will also receive a number of ADAS, including ACC, Lane Assist, Exit Warning System, Pedestrian Detection, TSR, High-Beam Assist and Park Assist.

Rumor has its that the Tundra’s engine range will include a 3.5-liter V6 hybrid engine from Lexus and a 3.5-liter two-cylinder V6 unit aka «I-Force Max». The latter produces 450 hp. Whether these engines will be the only ones in the line or will be added to the existing 4.6-liter and 5.7-liter naturally aspirated V8s is not known at the moment. The car will be rear-wheel drive (or AWD as an option) and use a six-speed manual or ten-speed automatic transmission.

The Toyota Tundra debuts in the fourth quarter of 2021 and will be available for purchase in December of the same year.
