The third-generation of the automakers full-size pickup is expected to debut later this year as a 2022 model. The Tundra will be built on a new chassis that will underpin future 4Runner and Sequoia utility vehicles plus the midsize Tacoma pickup. Although powertrain details haven’t been confirmed, it’s rumored that the Tundra’s 381-horsepower 5.7-liter V-8 will be replaced with a twin-turbocharged V-6 with more horsepower and torque. A hybrid power system — either standard or possibly plug-in — is also likely. The Tundra’s styling will be influenced by the Hilux pickup that’s sold elsewhere around the world.
