2022 Toyota Tundra Diesel

The full-size pickup truck 2022 Toyota Tundra Diesel, has been confirmed for the following year. As you may know, Tundra is a top-rated pickup truck that has an excellent reliability rating. Besides, the latest Tundra Diesel is the perfect mix of advanced technology, dependability, safety, and raw power.

However, Tundra keeps too many years the same cons that we don’t like. This pickup has poor driving dynamics, low towing and hauling capacities, and old cabin styling. Generally, we believe that the upcoming 2022 Tundra variant will definitively change that.

2022 Toyota Tundra Diesel Sits on the New F1 Architecture

In terms of outside design, this pickup will bring significant changes. Moreover, it will ride on a new F1 architecture. If you didn’t know, this platform is also underpinning the next-generation Tacoma and Sequoia full-size SUV. The rendering photos are available, and plenty of upgrades are more than visible. At first glance, we can see that the latest Tundra is a mix of popular models like RAV4 and Highlander.

The front of this model dominates with chrome trapezoidal-framed grille and c-shaped DRL signatures LED headlamps. Looking from the side, 2022 Toyota Tundra Diesel is simple, yet muscular. The manufacturer added wider fenders and stylish 18-inch wheels. Out-back, this model features Cadillac-style vertical LED taillights and a configurable modular bed.

Cabin Improvements

Unfortunately, the rendering photos inside this pickup are not yet available. However, one thing is sure, the all-new 2021 Toyota Tundra Diesel will depart from the regular model. As you may know, all Tundra variants offer the same cabin layout and design. We can surely say that the cabin of the previous model, provides old style. However, the new model will change that and we can expect plenty of novelties. We heard that a new display is almost certain to happen.

Furthermore, you can even expect new high-tech goodies and better seats. Comfort will be excellent as always and Tundra Diesel will get more safety aids.

2022 Toyota Tundra Engine Options

Make no mistake, the Tundra is one of the most powerful pickup trucks on the market. The base model will come with a 5.7L i-Force V8 engine that produces 381 horses. A 6-speed automatic comes standard as the two-wheel-drive (2WD). On the higher trim levels, a 4WD system is a must-have. According to many gossips, Toyota will also offer a smaller 4.6-liter V8 mill as an optional engine. Moreover, the Tundra’s long-rumored twin-turbo 3.5-liter gas V6 hybrid model might become available as well. This engine will reportedly deliver 450 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque.

Diesel Powertrain

The new 2022 Toyota Tundra Diesel variant has been confirmed and we have some information about its engine. Probably, this model will use a 3.5-liter V6 engine. This mill will deliver no less than 305 horsepower, to be precise. It will use a 10-speed automatic gearbox and it should provide excellent fuel efficiency. No doubt, Tundra Diesel will offer something completely new and different from the base version. We are still waiting for the Japanese manufacturer to provide more information.
