It might not have a place in the American lexicon like the Ford F-150 or Chevy pickups, which have been featured in iconic songs and remain two of the best-selling vehicles in the country.
But since its debut in 1999, the Toyota Tundra has taken its place among the most reliable vehicles in the business, having recently placed as the highest quality new full-size pickup in the 2021 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study.
Toyota on Sunday night unveiled an overhauled version of the Tundra, which is poised to hit dealerships later this year as a 2022 model.
The 2022 Tundra comes with a standard 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged, 6-cylinder engine that generates up to 389 horsepower. An upgraded powertrain generates up to 437 horsepower. Each will be paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
The 8-cylinder engine available on the 2021 model will no longer be offered. Automakers are increasingly reducing cylinders in engine configurations as smaller engines have become more efficient.
The company said it would release pricing details at a later date. The 2021 Tundra starts at $38,420.
Maximum towing capacity on the 2022 Tundra is 12,000 pounds, up 18 percent over the previous generation. The top payload capacity is 1,940 pounds, up 11 percent.
The vehicle comes in several different bed lengths, including 5.5 feet, 6.5 and 8.1.
A 14-inch touchscreen is available as an upgrade, continuing a trend of automakers placing bigger and bigger screens in their vehicles. The automaker also said it developed a new audio system to debut in the Tundra.
Safety features include a “multi-terrain monitor,” which is “available to allow the driver to check the immediate surroundings for potential obstacles by simply pressing a button for front-, rear- and side-camera views on the display,” Toyota said.
