The New 2022 Toyota Tundra Breaks Cover With A New Hybrid V-6 And A Whole Lot Of Major Upgrades

The New 2022 Toyota Tundra Breaks Cover With A New Hybrid V-6 And A Whole Lot Of Major Upgrades

A new V-6 engine in two configurations, new suspension setup, and interior and exterior updates are some of the accolades

Toyota sold the second-gen Tundra for 14 years with a few nips and tucks in that period to keep it fresh. Despite the fairly strong sales, those were not enough and the truck was clearly outdated when compared to its American rivals, the Ford F-150, the Chevy Silverado 1500, and the Ram 1500. So, for 2022, the automaker decided to bring in the third-gen Tundra.

The company has ditched the V-8 in favor of a V-6 that’s offered in two configurations, equipped a new suspension system, underpinned it on a new chassis, and a whole lot of other major upgrades. It sure looks and feels in line with the other players in the segment now.

Toyota made a hybrid supercar long before it was cool; would it have worked now?

Nowadays, hybrid supercars are as common as a VW Jetta. Well, not quite, but you get the idea.

What you may not know is that back when hybrid supercars were even considered, Toyota beat everyone to it. They did so with the Toyota Alessandro Volta, and this is everything we know about it.

These Renderings Show Us What The New Lamborghini Countach Could Have Looked Like

The new Lamborghini Countach is an Aventador with the original Countach vibes, but it missed out on a few very important elements and cues

Lamborghini revealed the new Countach earlier this month and it was the talk of the town for a long time. The automaker revived the moniker on its 50th anniversary and based it on the Aventador. While the new Countach came with a lot of elements from the yesteryear model, it wasn’t as old school as a lot of people expected it to be. For a modern car with retro vibes, it did well. But, for a moniker as beloved as the Countach, the car missed out on a lot of stuff.

Since the looks drew polarizing opinions, some rendering artists took it upon themselves to show us what the Countach could’ve looked like if it was a lot more retro and old-school. One of them is Siim Pärn who shared his renderings with us.

Aston Martin had unveiled the AM-RB 001 concept back in 2016. It went into production a year later and came out with the ‘Valkyrie’ moniker.

Adding a third model to the Valkyrie’s lineup after a coupe and a track-only AMR Pro version, Aston Martin has unveiled the Valkyrie Spider – an open-top version that retains the same performance but loses on the roof and the gullwing doors.
