The teaser campaign of the new generation Tundra pickup truck, which started in early summer, is nearing its end. The company has published a three-second video in which the truck itself is almost invisible, but the date of its premiere has finally been revealed: it will take place during an online presentation on September 19. In the frames with the slogan Born from Invincible (“Born from the invincible”), you can see only part of the cockpit, the cargo platform and the canopy, although the exterior of the Tundra has long been no secret thanks to multiple “leaks” and spy shots.
The exterior of the new generation Toyota Tundra full-size pickup truck was declassified back in June: then several images of the novelty in the “rich” version of TRD Pro with underbody protection and sports suspension were circulated on the Web at once. Last week, a “regular” Tundra, completely devoid of camouflage, was suddenly spotted in a US parking lot.

With the change of generation, the car will receive a massive radiator grille with a chrome frame (in the TRD Pro version – completely black), complex optics with T-shaped daytime running lights, embossed stampings on the fenders, doors and cargo platform. The “charged” modification will also get additional LED “chandeliers”.
The manufacturer could not keep it secret either. Spies who managed to get close to a pickup in an expensive Platinum version filmed a huge screen of a multimedia system measuring at least 15 inches. A basic pickup truck does not have such a touchscreen – it will be equipped with a more modest display.
It is already known that the base for the pickup is the TNGA GA-F frame chassis, which underlies the Land Cruiser 300, and in the engine range, the 5.7-liter naturally aspirated V8 will be replaced by the V6 iForce iMax 3.5 biturbo engine. On an SUV, it produces 415 horsepower. In addition, a hybrid power plant may be offered for the Tundra.
