In May this year, a teaser campaign for the 2022 Toyota Tundra kicked off, gradually revealing the details of the upcoming new pickup truck.

But, most likely, the marketing strategy failed, as there was a leak of information.

Otherwise, nothing can explain the fact that the manufacturer was forced to post on his Twitter page new images of the SUV with a signature of unambiguous content: «someone does not know how to keep secrets.»

At the same time, the published photos clearly show that we are talking about a TRD Pro modification, which is confirmed by the nameplates on the hood and a more aggressive body kit.

The exterior of the pickup is so far the only thing that can be learned about the new body of the 2022 Toyota Tundra.

But the fact that the changes should turn out to be global, including in «technology», is beyond doubt, since Toyota is creating a completely new Tundra for the first time in 15 years.

One should also take into account the use of the TNGA-F platform as in the new Toyota Land Cruiser 300, the introduction of which is a step towards the subsequent electrification of the model and already now allows the installation of hybrid transmissions.

This also fits well with the almost confirmed information about the resignation of the atmospheric G8s.


The novelty has received a more impressive front end with expressive lighting elements.

Together with the strips of running lights installed in the grille, three amber light sources are also distinguishable — according to American laws, mandatory elements for cars over 80 inches (2032 mm) wide.

Unfortunately, the black mesh does not give an idea of ​​what the «civilian» Tundra will look like, which should rely on the chrome trim.

How much it will transform the front of the car, taking into account the new Y-shaped optics — you will be able to find out at the official show of the new item.

The closest rivals to the Japanese — the Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150 — boast solid 12-inch touchscreen displays for their infotainment systems, and it looks like this is already becoming standard on large pickups.

Toyota engineers did not hesitate to tease the public with a photograph showing the top edge of a large, horizontally positioned touchscreen in the center of the front console.

Interestingly, it is on the same level as the “tidy” visor, which really promises an impressive display size. Its exact size is still unknown, but the device will definitely get Apple CarPlay support.
