The latest teaser for the 2022 Toyota Tundra focuses on the new pickup engine. However, the image and video do not show this.
“The next generation of heroic iForce performance is ready for the all-new Tundra,” says Toyota in its brief teaser.
A very short teaser video, oddly enough, reveals new details about the upcoming Toyota Tundra model. For example, there are three raised areas on the left side of the engine cover. That could have been a way of labeling three cylinders per row, which in turn means there’s a V6 powerplant under the hood. This confirms rumors that the pickup will be powered by a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6.
Bob Carter, VP of Sales for Toyota North America, has already confirmed that the new base engine delivers more power and torque than the existing 5.7-liter V8 Tundra. It produces 381 horsepower and 544 Newton meters of torque. The 2022 Tundra will be available with a different engine option, which Toyota has yet to provide details on. It is speculated to be a hybrid or plug-in hybrid variant of the twin-turbo V6 engine.
The 2022 Tundra uses the new Toyota TGNA-F platform. The Japanese company developed it to support electrified powertrains, which confirmed rumors of a hybrid. Spy shots hint at an evolutionary design, where the biggest change is the headlights and the DRLs take on a T-shape.
Toyota has not announced when it intends to unveil the new Tundra. Although this teaser was released just a week after the previous one. Given this frequency of release, we can conclude that the truck will debut in a few weeks.
