Finally, Tundra fans are getting a hybrid option. According to news, the upcoming model 2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid is arriving. As you probably know, Toyota Tundra has earned a reputation as one of the most reliable trucks on the market. This model offers a great design and even better cabin.
From the first spy images, Toyota will modify its Tundra pickup truck. However, don’t expect significant changes. Besides a new hybrid powertrain option, the interior will also suffer a couple of noticeable differences.
2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid Changes
The forthcoming 2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid will arrive next year and we can expect a more attractive look. Interestingly, from spy shots, we can see almost the similar design language as on the new RAV4 crossover and Highlander.
Toyota could use the new modified F1 platform. Thanks to that, the underpinnings would allow for increased component and more significant battery storage. However, Tundra is a massive truck, so we can expect more modifications. For a start, the manufacturer added new C-shaped LED headlights and a trapezoidal grille that wears additional chrome around. Moreover, Toyota added more muscles, and we like how new black a-pillars are looking. A power tailgate is also available, along with the integrated bumper steps.
More Spacious Cabin
The next-gen 2022 Toyota Tundra will provide a more spacious cabin. This model will definitively introduce numerous interior changes. However, we can expect the same cabin design layout as on the regular one. Like before, Tundra has enough room for five passengers comfortably. Most likely, the Japanese automaker will deliver better ride quality and customers can count on various amenities. At this time, there is no available image, but we heard that the new model would including a massive 12.3-inch touchscreen.
The same infotainment system is present on the new-generation of Highlander SUV. Safety Sense 2.0 suite is available and is better than before. With better, we mean that there will be various driver-assistance features. Basically, customers can expect Road sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, and pedestrian detection, among others.
2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid Engine System
The upcoming 2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid uses a new Toyota’s F1 architecture. As you probably know, the same platform is used on the next-generation Tacoma and Sequoia full-size SUV. Reportedly, the new Tundra will be available with a hybrid 3.5-liter V6 powertrain that could pomp out 450 horsepower (335 kilowatts).
However, ar this moment, we don’t know what will happen with aging powertrains. The manufacturer might entirely replace the current 4.6-liter and 5.7-litre customarily aspirated V8 units offered in the current truck.
2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid Release Date and Price
From the official statement, the new 2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid debut is expected in the fourth quarter next year. Indicating that, we could expect sales to start in December 2021 as an MY2022 offering. At the same time manufacturer will release Sequoia’s full-size SUV sibling.
The forthcoming 2022 Toyota Tundra will cost around $35,000, or maybe even more. However, choosing the hybrid model, the price will jump, but not significantly. More precise details about price of hybrid pickup expect later this year.
