Brace Yourselves, The New Toyota Tundra Is Coming On September 19!

Toyota has revealed that the highly-anticipated all-new Tundra will debut on September 19

The all-new Tundra was rumored, leaked, and teased – in that order – but it’s finally here… Well, almost here. Toyota released a three-second teaser on its Facebook page that says that the truck is arriving on 19 September 2021. The time has finally come!

September 19: Save The Date, Folks!

The teaser might be super short, but it has hyped the Tundra even more. We’re less than a week away from the debut, so let’s brush up on what we already know about the truck. But, before we get to that, there’s another interesting thing in the teaser. It says “Born from Invincible”. Now, there’s nothing wrong with a bold statement like that, but ‘Invincible’ is a badge that is used on the Hilux pickup truck.

There were hushed talks in the past that Toyota is planning to unify two of the badges, which were presumed to be the Hilux and the Tacoma. Could this be some sort of a tease or an Easter egg? It can’t be an off-road or rugged trim since the Tundra is already teased in the TRD Pro form. So, is Toyota planning to unify the Hilux with the Tundra instead? Could the Hilux be getting bigger and better? It looks highly unlikely, but we hope there’s a story behind the use of the word ‘Invincible’ for the Tundra’s trailer and it not being just a coincidence.

Toyota announced that the all-new Tundra will debut on 19th September. The company announced it via a teaser on its Facebook page

Anyway, coming back to what we already know about the new Toyota Tundra, it will feature a massive grille up front. After the truck was teased, Toyota released one image – yes, just one! – but it was the TRD Pro. You can see that the windshield seems smaller and the beltline is lower than the hood. This will be a high-rider with frontal visibility issues, especially for the shorter folks. But there’s a forward-facing camera here that could come to your aid.

It came with 18-inch, six lug-nut wheels, a bigger grille up front, and some other different design cues

We also noticed it had six lug nuts which points at a higher load capacity and better capability ratings. The current towing and payload capacities are limited to 10,200- and 1,730 pounds, respectively. It was equipped with 18-inch, black BBS Forged wheels with red TRD wheel caps, shod in 285/65 section Wildpeak All-Terrain tires.

The thirsty V-8 will most likely be ditched in favor of a V-6 with some kind of hybridization

The thirsty V-8 will most likely be ditched in favor of a V-6. Also, it will have some sort of hybridization to it. The current Tundra features a 5.7-liter V-8 mill that makes 381 horses and 401 pound-feet of torque. However, the fuel-guzzler would return just 13 to 17 miles for every gallon consumed. The hybrid V-6 could change that. Also, its chief rival, the F-150, comes with a V-6 hybrid mill now.

The current Tundra starts at $34,000, but the 2022 model could be priced higher. The truck will be built at the company’s San Antonio Assembly Plant.
