Earlier this week, they leaked images circulated claiming to show the next-generation Toyota Tundra 2022. Automakers dislike leaks and frequently deny that the images are of their vehicle or ignore the leak entirely. On the other hand, Toyota took a different approach when images of its 2022 Tundra leaked instead of releasing an official image of the truck.
With Toyota’s move, speculation about the 2022 Tundra has shifted from leaked images to Toyota’s official image. It’s worth noting, however, that Toyota only provided a single image of the Tundra TRD Pro and no other information about the truck. SlashGear published a 2021 Tundra TRD Pro review last month, emphasizing that it was the truck’s final outing for the current generation.
However, it gives us an excellent opportunity to compare the exterior of the 2021 model to the exterior of the 2022 model. The exterior of the truck has undergone significant changes. While the overall profile remains virtually unchanged, 2022 has an entirely new front end closely resembling the Tacoma and 4Runner SUV styles. That means a large black grille with hexagonal openings and prominent Toyota branding.
It is unknown whether non-TRD Pro versions will receive the same front-end treatment. Another exciting feature visible in the official Toyota photograph is that the truck has an LED light bar underneath the Toyota logo in the grill and what appear to be LEDs underneath the grill on the front black portion of the bumper. The headlights are significantly smaller and appear to be LEDs.
The truck has subtle black fender extensions and rides on eye-catching black wheels. We also notice that the car has integrated to make getting in and out easier. Unfortunately, there is no indication of what changes may have been made to the truck’s interior or under the hood at this time.
