The upcoming 2022 Toyota Tundra Diesel is a full-size pickup truck that will go on sale later next year. The Tundra is known as one of the most reliable full-size trucks to this date. In addition, the new Tundra with diesel powertrain represents an ideal combination of power and capability. On top of that, Tundra is a reliable model with great safety ratings.
Tundra still lacks a couple of things and we hope that the 2022 model will get essential updates. For a start, driving characteristics are poor and this truck definitely needs better towing capacity. Some things on the inside are still outdated so we hope to see various changes and refreshments.
The most significant change on the 2022 Toyota Tundra Diesel is the new platform. The new model will ride on the famous F1 architecture. As you probably know, the F1 platform will underpin the next-generation Tacoma and Sequoia models. At this moment, renderings are the only idea about Tundra’s new look. We are sure that this truck will get various cosmetic upgrades.
According to some sources, Tundra will borrow styling cues from the RAV4 crossover. The front fascia is dominated by a trapezoidal chrome grille and new c-shaped LED headlights. On the other hand, the rear section will look sportier than ever before. Moreover, Toyota will deliver wider fenders and new sleeker 18-inch wheels. Most likely, the rear part will host new vertical LED taillights and a more aggressive bumper.
Interior Gets Drastic Upgrades
At this moment, we have no info about the interior of the 2022 Toyota Tundra Diesel. Even the renderings are not available yet. One thing is clear, the new Tundra will depart from the current design. That means the interior will be heavily refreshed. We expect to see new upholstery, more upright materials, and more standard equipment.
Furthermore, the list goes on with a redesigned dashboard and the latest driver-assistance aids. Toyota will deliver an all-new and larger display too. Thanks to all these upgrades, the new Tundra will provide better comfort and easier use of the controls. We think that these upgrades will affect all trim levels, including the range-topping models.
The forthcoming 2022 Toyota Tundra Diesel is official. However, we don’t know which engine will power this full-size truck. The most likely candidate is a 3.5-liter V6 engine. This powertrain option will reportedly deliver around 305 horsepower.
A smaller engine will deliver improved fuel economy ratings and Toyota will offer a new 10-speed automatic transmission. Thanks to that, Tundra will finally get better towing capacity. However, torque figures are not available yet.
2022 Toyota Tundra Diesel Release Date
Logically, the new 2022 Toyota Tundra Diesel will cost more than ever before. The latest upgrades are the main reason for that, so the new model could cost around $40,000. Of course, you can still get a more affordable Tundra with a gasoline engine. The sales will begin in the second half of 2021. Before that, Toyota will officially announce the latest changes and provide more info about the new diesel engine.
