After the redesign, the new Tundra will also introduce another engine, which might replace an old V8. What’s more, trim levels will offer fresh equipment, with more advanced features for each package. That is not all, since the 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is also under the revisit. Not only the full-size truck, but also other vehicles that come in this version, will update the package in the upcoming season or two.
Tundra is part of the original squad of TRD Pro vehicles introduced in 2015, alongside Tacoma and 4Runner SUV. This move is one of the best in the recent history, since all three models are considered as the best off-roaders in their classes. The success made Toyota expand the lineup and the Sequoia SUV was added. Now, fans and experts are bidding which is the next vehicle to get the TRD Pro package.
2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Changes
The truck is getting an ultimate 4×4 features. Well, it is already at the top level, but the next update will make it even more stunning. After seven years, changes are needed to stay at the top of the off-road hierarchy. Nowadays, there are more trucks with improved 4×4 drive. The last one is the Ram 1500 TRX with Hellcat engine. Ford Raptor R is the response. The 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is not going after those trucks with monster outputs. But, who knows. The new engine is coming to replace a V8. Still, that is not the only thing that matters when it comes to the off-road ride. Shocks, suspension, brakes, other body parts, and bed accessories need to make a work convenient.
New Engine, Specs
A 5.7-liter V8 is a reliable partner of the truck for years. With 380 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, it produces enough power for off-road drive and towing. Well, hauling is not a primary function of the 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro. The base configuration comes with a 2WD, while the 4WD is optional. For all TRD models (Off-Road and Sport), it is standard.
About a year ago, we saw that company filed for the registration of the new trademark. That is the I-Force Max, and sources reported that will be a new engine. At the same time, Lexus LX600 became another trademark in the process of claiming. The alphanumeric nomenclature made all enthusiasts thinking – what does the ‘600’ indicates. It is usual for Lexus SUVs that number shows the displacement (RX350 uses 3.5-l engine, GX460 4.6-l, LX570 5.7-l). This time, a 6.0-liter mill is too big. Does it show the horsepower rating? 600 ponies – we doubt.
2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Release Date
The new TRD Pro package is coming with the redesigned truck. A new look and fresh trim levels with modern and advanced equipment should make the Tundra truck more competitive. The price will go up a bit. The 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will be very close to $50,000. TRD Off-Road and TRD Sport might be lighter versions, which are not available for the full-size truck at the moment, but we can find those packages for other members of the TRD Pro family.
