The 2022 Toyota Tundra officially broke coverage following an image leak earlier this week. On Friday night, the automaker released a series of social media posts showing the new full-size truck, each with “Some people just don’t know how to keep a secret.”
Toyota’s 2022 Tundra, due to be unveiled this fall, was seen by some media outlets a few weeks ago on a private visit to Toyota’s headquarters in the Dallas area and dealers recently viewed the model from a distance. The leaked images that were posted on the Toyota Tundra Forum are screenshots purportedly of a dealer representative.
A new photo reveals the 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro clad in white paint. The large truck has the exterior equipment and finishes typical of the TRD Pro range: an elevator, a black grille, black tubular steps, black fender flares, a TRD badge on the front and black window frames. .
There is an LED light strip under the “Toyota” in the middle of the grille and LED position lights in the corners and at the front. Headlights and daytime running lights feature full LED lighting in the TRD Pro trim level.
There are also some unique features. The word “Tundra” is stamped into the front bumper waterfall area, which is made from the same textured black material as the fender flares area. Horizontal single-line LED fog lights are found at the bottom of the grille flanking the “Tundra” and above the black skid plate. The A-pillar is black, giving the tundra roof a peninsula effect.
Look to the rear and you can see a working dual tailpipe on the driver’s side of the truck. Looking down, you’ll see BBS Forged TRD Pro wheels wrapped in Falken Wildpeak A / T tires and a bed step in the rear corner.
Toyota has already unveiled a new version of its V8 engine, the iForce Max, which is expected to be a hybrid powerhouse based on the blue surround of the word “Max” in the logo. Toyota traditionally uses blue logo outlines and inlays to differentiate internal combustion engines from hybrid vehicles.
Safety technology is prominent on the Tundra. Forward-facing radar and camera are up front, sensing technology is behind the rearview mirror, and cameras are visible under the side mirrors. Federal guidelines require a rear view camera on new vehicles.
