The new 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will reportedly arrive next year. Moreover, some of the leaks reveal that the upcoming model should be much better looking than the recently rendered base truck. Basically, unlike the regular model, Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will come with a more aggressive front fascia.
However, TRD will ride on the same body-on-frame, which should be more robust, because of using more high-strength steel. Also, buyers can expect more features inside as more premium materials. However, the most exciting part is under the hood of this model. Say goodbye to the Tundra’s V-8 engine, because Toyota will reportedly replace it with a new V6 powertrain. Here’s what we know about this fantastic truck.
2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Exterior Refreshments
The new 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is one of the best pickup trucks. This model is available in two different body styles. You can get it in a Crew Cab form with a short bed, or a Double cab with a larger box. On the other hand, it’s a really competent off-roader. Unlike the rest of the trims, this special edition comes with a revised grille, featuring stylish headlights, FOX suspension, aluminum skid plate, and more.
Moreover, it also comes with forged BBS 18-inch alloy wheels and a unique dual-exhaust system. Like the Sequoia, Tacoma and 4Runner, TRD Pro variant is also dressed in attractive Army Green paint.
Inside, the upcoming 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will offer very spacious and upscale cabin. Generally, this trim has all that you need. It comes with very sporty seats, providing excellent comfort. Also, black leather upholstery is still present with red contrast stitching, looking amazing.
On top of that, TRD Pro includes various technology and driver-assistance packages. It comes standard with a rocking 12-speaker JBL audio system, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control.
2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Engine Specs
Reportedly, Toyota will make some drastic changes under the hood of Tundra. We heard that the ageing V8 engine might be replaced with the new V6 powertrain. Many believe that the first candidate is the powertrain that can be found under the Lexus LS500. This model is available with a 3.4-litre unit and is capable of producing 416-hp. However, the next engine will probably be borrowed from the Tacoma model. This model uses a 3.5-litre V-6 naturally aspirated engine delivering 278-hp.
However, given Toyota’s hybrid history, we could also see a gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain option. Such a setup will allow the new Tundra to compete with the closest rival, Ford F-150.
2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Arrival and Price
Unlike the standard Toyota Tundra, the new TRD Pro will introduce many new features. This pickup truck is one of the best off-roaders that you can found on the market. However, for 2022, it will receive a more aggressive styling and a more upscale cabin.
From the information that we got, the new TRD Pro, might be introduced simultaneously as the regular one. Toyota recently revealed that Tundra would arrive at some point in the next year. Price is not yet available, but expect TRD Pro to cost much more than the regular Tundra.
