The Toyota Tundra will be powered by the 3.5-litre, turbocharged V6 engine that is a replacement for the V8 mill.
We knew that the new Toyota Tundra was in the making ever since we heard about the 2022 Land Cruiser LC300 and we also knew that both models will share quite a lot. Now the Japanese carmaker has teased the new 2022 Tundra and the latest teaser gives us a glimpse of the first thing both models will be share- the new V6 engine. Yes! Even the Toyota Tundra will be powered by the 3.5-litre, turbocharged V6 engine that replaces the V8 mill.
A closer look reveals three embossed sections on the left side of the engine cover. This could be a way of saying that there are three cylinders per bank, meaning the motor under the hood is a V6. The 2022 Tundra will also be offered with a second powertrain option, but Toyota isn’t sharing any details about it yet. Going by rumours, it’s a hybrid or plug-in hybrid variant of the twin-turbo V6 engine. The 2022 Tundra is underpinned by Toyota’s new TGNA-F platform. The company engineered it to be able to support electrified powertrains and that backs up the rumours about the electrified powertrain.
The 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 is underpinned by the TNGA platform as well. The platform has saved 200 kg from its kerb weight and also helps in making it 10 per cent more efficient when it comes to CO2 emissions. It gets the 3.5-litre, twin-turbocharged V6 oil-burner that is more powerful than the V8. It belts out 403 bhp and 650 Nm of peak torque- a whole 30 bhp and 108 Nm more than the outgoing V8. The engine is mated to brand new 10-speed torque convertor automatic gearbox which too makes debut on the new Toyota Land Cruiser LC300.
