Solid and modest – Toyota unveils next-gen 2022 Tundra

Clay prototype 1

Toyota’s new Tundra pick-up has been designed with practicality and ruggedness in mind, while a hybrid powertrain option adds to power and efficiency

Toyota has given the Tundra a complete overhaul for MY2022. It has been redesigned from the ground up, with a new exterior and interior to accompany new engine options and an assortment of new tech. 

The model was designed, from first pencil sketches to the finished product, at Toyota’s two studios in Newport Beach, California and Ann Arbor, Michigan. The exterior design team adopted the term “technical muscle”, and although the general appearance is close to the previous generation Tundra, there have been some fundamental changes. For example, there is a new high-strength steel frame, aluminium-reinforced composite bed, and a wider rear frame member to improve stability and support greater towing capability.
