By now, you may have heard a wild story about the 2022 Toyota Tundra images being leaked out online. Whether or not this vehicle has been finalized and slated into production remains untold. Either way Toyota has officially begun a campaign to promote the new truck platform in very tiny increments without much detail or visuals.
The most interesting thing about all of this, is the public’s reaction to the Tundra’s makeover. In the modern fashion of vehicle personalization, we have come to expect loads of artist renderings and talented designers go one step further to make it their own.
Instagram user and Tundra owner/enthusiast @ahmed_alktbee has gone above and beyond with this impressive rendering. A 2022 Toyota Tundra in full prerunner trim is just what the doctor ordered in my opinion.
2022 Toyota Tundra Hype Is Real!
In this off-road ready overland setup below, Camburg Engineering posted an artist rendering simulating and created by @pictafiedesign. The truck is decked out with off-road skid plates, oversized General Tires, Method Race Wheels, an array of Baja Designs LED Lights, Overland style Go Fast Camper Shell, and of course equipped with Camburg suspension.
Within the official releases coming from Toyota, we are shown a close up of the truck’s engine cover presenting an iForce badge that emphasizes a very bold “MAX” lettering in blue outline. This may indicate a possible hybrid drivetrain as part of the rumored twin turbocharged V6 power plant. The current-generation Tundra model is powered by a 381 horsepower 5.7 liter iForce V8.
Other revelations point to a large and wide open grille with prominent “Toyota” lettering adorned with three daytime amber running lights which are also featured on the tailgate. The campaign so far only offers four images but leaves room for a total of eight. So far it has been one release a week. By the end of July we should see a more complete preview of the new Tundra’s vehicle details.
The rumor mill tells us the 2022 Toyota Tundra may go on sale by the end of the year and pricing could range at $36,000 for a base model. The TRD Pro should jump up to just over $50,000.
Either way and no matter what, the 2022 Toyota Tundra will be making its way to driveways across America. Many multitudes of the truck will be customized and equipped with an assortment of high quality aftermarket parts. We are excited about this part because the OEMs are only willing to go so far at the factory and we want to see decked out Tundra’s on the trails and doing truck things like they were meant to.
