2022 Toyota Tacoma Redesign
2022 Toyota Tacoma Redesign– Toyota re-launched the third-generation Tacoma in 2016, and most of the shape and specs have remained the same since then. However, with its sharp appearance and strong sales, we hope that the Tacoma 2022 can become a carryover model.
Today’s Toyota Tacoma features a rugged design with a bold grille, robust headlamps design, widening wheel holes, and a large selection of wheels. The Tacoma takes a step to the solid side in the TRD Pro and Off-Road models, which include unique wheels and protruding tires to tackle off-road terrain. We hope this look remains the same in Tacoma 2022.
Inside, the Tacoma currently boasts a simple yet sturdy look with a four-mast steering wheel, checkered dashboard, circular air vents, and simple HVAC controls. This interior gets an extra touch of color on the higher trims, but the basic look and feel remain.
In terms of features, the Tacoma is equipped for pickup, even the basic trim. In the entry-level SR trim, the Tacoma returns to standard with a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, upholstery, windows and electric locks, sliding rear windows, and more. It’s likely to stay the same in Tacoma 2022.
The Toyota Tacoma currently has a pair of powertrain options, starting with the standard 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. Optionally, buyers can opt for the 3.5-liter V6, which produces 278 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque. The four-cylinder engine comes standard with a six-speed automatic transmission, while you can get the V6 which has a six-speed manual or automatic.
The Tacoma is currently the Top Safety Pick with a “Good” rating in most crash tests and an “Acceptable” rating in the passenger-side test with minor overlap. Optional LED headlights rated “Good” also aid in this rating. However, IIHS will keep up with the latest standards on the Tacoma version 2022, which requires a “Good” hit test result in all tests, so it will likely lose the Top Safety Pick designation. Tacoma’s standard safety equipment includes automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beam. We expect the safety equipment and individual crash test ratings to stay the same in Tacoma 2022.
Styling and Interior Design
Of course, most of these new models are new styles. As you might expect, this will match the company’s latest design language, so we’re counting on a lot of influence from crossovers like the RAV4 and Highlander, although there’s no doubt that the new Toyota Tundra 2022 will come with a much bolder look and a rougher overall attitude. . Additionally, some reports suggest we might see one cabin layout in the offer once again.
Regarding interior design, the current model does look out of date. The aesthetics are not only shared by another era of the auto industry, but most of the cabins are also made of hard plastics and other low-rent materials. Lastly, the lack of modern technological features is obvious. All of these things should be significantly improved with the new Toyota Tundra 2022. We rely on a much more attractive appearance to the cabin, as well as a smoother material, especially at the higher trim levels. Of course, new technological goods will also play an important role in the new model. On the other hand, we do not expect to see any significant changes in terms of dimensions, given that the current model already offers one of the most spacious cabins in the business.
2022 Toyota Tundra Powertrain
Without a doubt, one of the most anticipated for this redesign is the new hybrid powertrain. This is a sure thing and recent reports suggest that we’ll be seeing a pretty capable configuration. We expect this model to pull in around 13,000 pounds. At the same time, it will be the most efficient truck in its segment. We count on more than 30 miles per gallon combined.
The new hybrid setup is sure to be awesome in many ways, but it also means a high starting price. Therefore, we have no doubt that a pure petrol engine will also be offered. Some sources suggest a new V6 engine is on offer but a V8 unit should also be offered. The Japanese manufacturer trademarks under the new name “I-Force Max”, which clearly indicates that they haven’t finished with eight cylinders. On the other hand, the diesel version is not expected, despite the rumors.
2022 Toyota Tacoma Price and Release Date
- There is no official sale date for the Tacoma 2022, but we predict the arrival of summer 2021.
- Pricing for the Tacoma 2022 is also unclear. However, with no change in workmanship, we expect it to stay close to the current model’s $ 27,325 to $ 47,955 range (including destination cost).
- The next-generation Tacoma is reported to arrive in 2024. Toyota could potentially merge the model with the internationally sold Hilux. There is no word on whether the ancient six-speed automatic transmission will be stopped.
2022 Toyota Tundra Prototype is present on the road to the mountains
This truck sped on the Pikes Peak mountain road in Colorado for some altitude testing. Yes, this is the same road used for the International Pikes Peak Hillclimb.
This appears to be a testing prototype similar to the one seen in Arizona a few months ago. This is a crew cab truck with short bunk beds (approx. 5.5 ft). The prototype appears to have the same cabin as the current truck.
There are rumors that Toyota will introduce and officially debut the next 2022 Tundra in February 2021. This may happen during Super Bowl LV 2021 on February 7, 2021, as a commercial venue and/or at the 2021 Chicago Auto Show which is currently set for 13-21 February. Normally, the timing of official debuts is highly dependent on a million factors and events can be canceled due to public health guidelines.
Toyota has had time to design, develop, and engineer highly competitive trucks for the next generation. We anticipate this truck will be powered by at least two twin-turbo V6 gas engines. This is unofficial information. We were expecting a “standard” twin-turbo V6, and a high-performance hybrid gas / electric V6 with around 450 horsepower. There are other unofficial sources claiming that the Tundra Hybrid will be capable of producing 30+ MPG.
