Toyota has revealed some details of the 2022 Tundra. The biggest news is the deletion of the long-serving V8 engine for a twin-turbocharged V6, following current popular trends in configuration and number of pistons. The top-of-the-line model produces 437 horsepower.
Other changes include rear coil suspension on some models—a welcome upgrade and one the Tundra should have had from the beginning.
What I haven’t found out is if the Tundra’s sub-par “Triple-Tech” chassis, with open-channel frame members under the bed, has been ditched for a proper boxed chassis as every competitor has. I suspect not, although I still don’t know why the company abandoned boxed chassis in its trucks for a design similar to that found on Fords and Chevys in the 1970s.
More news as I uncover it.
