2022 Toyota Tundra Thread

Recommended Posts

Made a catchall thread for the 2022 Tundra.  They haven't unveiled it yet, but this photo leaked.

Toyota fan boys will love it, and The Truck Formerly Know as Dodge fan boys will be all riled up at someone challenging their 'bad-ass'  perception .

 

Ford and Chevy guys will just go about their business and not even notice this brutally hideous frankentruck.

Toyota Tundra's biggest strengths are.

  • Assembled in Texas
  • Most reliable full size pickup truck on the market

The redesign for 2022 model year keeps the 1st advantage. But it remains to be seen if Toyota can preserve the 2nd. When Toyota redesigned its Tacoma for 2016, its reliability rating went down.

I would imagine this would also get the TT V6 they announced 2 years ago as Toyota phases out V8s. Also wouldn't be surprised to see a hybrid option soon.

I mean, it helps reliability when they've been building largely the same truck since 2007.

The 2nd is easily achievable when they don't sell many compared to the Big 3 or change their vehicles design for over a decade.

That's a selling point. Automakers know that in marketing full size pickup trucks, excess is attractive to the mostly male, high income, status seeking customers they want. This was mentioned in a July 2021 article of Consumer Reports. The Hidden Danger of BIG Trucks - Consumer Reports 

 

Quote

Automakers are also selling a lifestyle, says Angie Schmitt, founder and principal at 3MPH Planning and Consulting, a firm focused on pedestrian safety. "They’re not hiding the fact that they’re marketing these trucks as being really macho and a display of masculinity or prowess," she says. "That’s a big part of the marketing, and I think that it works."

Reminds me of a cartoon version of the 2015 F150 grille.  Toyota fans will love it.

I don’t mind it actually. Looks better than the Silverado. 
 

Truthfully  I don’t think the current one looks bad either, a bit old but inoffensive. The current trucks big issues are fuel economy and an interior that looks like it’s from 2010. Curious to see if the material Improve enough to match the F-150 and Ram 1500 interiors.

At least they continue to brand it properly - an ugly TuRD.

 

I'm hoping the regular version looks better.  There are some elements of it I don't mind, but a lot of it is over the top.

Jeebus, and I thought the Lexus predator mouth was bad.

Tundra spied testing on top of mountain with F-150. 

 

https://tfltruck.com/2021/06/spied-2022-toyota-tundra-prototype-with-less-camouflage-is-caught-testing-on-top-of-a-mountain/

 

The grill on this tester is different than the TRD-it's hard to tell exactly what it is with the camo on it.  That road BTW-while the highest paved in the U.S.-isn't particularly steep or challenging-it's just high.

Probably just a regular (non TRD) model.

Keeps resale up vs. buying something that gets a refresh or full-on changeover every 2-3 years. IMO they didn't have much incentive to change, they've had consistent volume since launch despite the smaller market share (source: used to work for a tier 1 supplier).

It also means it's less competitive and solely dependent on people for some reason buying the same truck over and over again.

Tundras needed a facelift, though not much originality, with this version
