Toyota dealers are confident that with the next generation, this Japanese full-size pickup has every chance of becoming a leader.

Big pickup enthusiasts bought 109,000 Toyota Tundra units last year, a 2% decline in demand. Considering that last year the automotive industry experienced a severe crisis, the indicator is not bad.

However, for the United States, where pickups are considered almost national cars, this figure could be even higher. Age prevented the aging “Japanese” from earning points. Everything will change when the next generation of the iconic model goes on sale.

Dealers who had time to get acquainted with the newest pickup before its appearance were delighted with the new product. In an interview with Automotive News, National Toyota Dealer Advisory Council Chairman Robbie Findlay said the new Tundra is the most exciting thing they’ve had in over five years. At the same time, he added that the segment of large trucks in the country has huge potential.

At the end of 2020, it was these cars that topped the rating of the best-selling cars in the United States, taking the first three lines.

Findlay is now calling the newest Toyota Tundra pickup “the winner.” He has every chance to compete for the sympathy of Americans with domestic models.

Little is known about the new product. Its debut is not expected until the end of this year, and the TNGA-F architecture is expected to be seen as a platform. The next generation pickup will be powered by a twin-turbo V6 engine.

Meanwhile, information appeared on the Web that Toyota is working on a “hot” station wagon GR Corolla. According to rumors, the novelty may receive a 1.6-liter engine from GR Yaris, “mechanics” and an all-wheel drive system.
