Seen a new version of the pickup Toyota Tundra 2020January 24, 2019
These are the very first “spy” photos of the Japanese compact pickup. The prototype has something strange with a rear suspension. The long-awaited novelty will be presented either at the end of this summer, or at the beginning of autumn.
This prototype of the updated car was discovered by foreign journalists in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA. And the novelty was driving along the street with a new, this time American pickup Ford F-150, which followed the Tundra to the Toyota plant. It should not be a surprise that Toyota is testing a leading truck in the entire segment with a rather strange camouflage. I would venture to suggest that under these layers of camouflage film are quite strong changes.
Look close at the rear axle of the spotted prototype. The brand’s engineers have additionally closed this part of the car from prying eyes – apparently something important is located there.
But these changes are unlikely to be very radical, such as, for example, an independent suspension — several photographs show the attachment points for shock absorbers that look typical of a solid rear axle.
As for the rest of the truck, expect a fairly significant conversion. The front of the car should be completely new, although heavy camouflage does not allow us to carefully consider the details. In general, the car will retain its main features – a false-sized grille of a larger size, surrounded by “small” headlights. A large horizontal strip in the middle can replace the layered layout on the current model. The cargo platform will receive some changes, as well as the back door – it seems it is still there.
The official date when a new version of the Japanese pickup will finally be presented is still unknown, but according to some sources, this will happen at the end of this summer or early autumn.
Not so long ago, we wrote that Toyota announced the Yaris model in the liftback version.
