Published information about the new Toyota TundraApril 5, 2020
The full-size Toyota Tundra pickup is perhaps a car relic. The Japanese manufacturing giant worked hard to prepare its next-generation F-150 competitor, and I came up with details about its design and filling.
The style embodies a blend of RAV4 and the new Highlander. A strange but impressive grille with a trapezoidal frame made of chrome has a visual connection with the current truck and its upper air intake, which, in turn, attracts attention along with a RAM-like engine cover.
The side view is simple but courageous, while the tension on the wings and lower doors is used to finish the sheet metal. For the sake of distinction, there are black-filled segments at the base of the front struts and rear roof areas in another visual indication of the newest RAV4. In addition, it is equipped with an electric rear door, Cadillac-style vertical taillights, and integrated bumper steps.
At the heart of the new truck will be the new Toyota F1 architecture, used in conjunction with the next-generation Tacoma and Sequoia full-size SUV. This portends a spacious, but still better cabin with many technologies and amenities. If you need the latest Highlander, expect a minimum 12.3-inch touchscreen, including Android Auto & Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, 4G Wi-Fi and JBL audio.
Toyota Sense 2.0 will also include a set of driver assistance aids, including pedestrian detection in low light, radar cruise control, steering wheel lane departure warning, lane tracker, automatic high beam control, and parking assistance front and back.
According to reports, the new Tundra will use a version of the ubiquitous Lexus brand, a hybrid 3.5-liter V6 and a twin-cylinder 3.5-liter V6 under the I-Force Max banner, with the latter delivering 450 horsepower. Whether these hybrid engines will complement or completely replace the existing 4.6-liter and 5.7-liter naturally aspirated V8s offered in the current truck remains to be seen.
Power must be supplied to the rear wheels (or optionally all four) using a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission. The truck will have options for rear and air suspension with a coil spring, as well as dynamic torque vectoring with multi-train and trail modes for those who regularly move off the beaten track.
