The upcoming 2024 Toyota Tundra is said to have a crew cab setup, and be ready in 2023. The exterior will get significant updates and changes, but the refreshed work will also happen on the inside. Expect new cabin design and bigger infotainment display on the cabin. The 2023 model had got a new coil spring for the rear suspension, so you can expect such feature to be a carryover to the upcoming 2024 Tundra model.
Powertrain and Performance
The powertrain for 2024 Toyota Tundra may likely be similar to the current one. There is, unfortunately, only one powertrain available. It runs on V6 gas twin turbo unit, coming together with auto 10 speed transmission. There would be 3 different outcomes, however. The base trim, the SR, may have 348 hp and 405 Nm of torque, while the higher trim level may get 389 hp and 479 Nm of torque.
There is always a possibility of hybrid power, with the V6 unit paired with an (integrated) electric motor and a gearbox, delivering 435 hp and 582 Nm of torque. According to the company, this hybrid version is able to reach 60 mph within 5.6 seconds, which isn’t bad at all considering that Tundra is a full size truck. It is surely heavy! The current Tundra has 12,000 pounds of towing capacity, while the new one is predicted to have better ability. The official release, however, hasn’t been made just yet. For all electric powertrain, the Tundra is said to get it within several years later.
Possible Design and Layout
The interior has this roomy space with plush ambiance, able to accommodate 5 people comfortably. The newer Tundra is claimed having better cabin. It also has better features and improved safe driving technologies. Some of the expectedly standard features including wireless Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, impressive touchscreen display in 14 inches, and also WiFi hotspots.
On the outside, the Tundra comes with somewhat a more aggressive appearance. Features and appearance may depend on the trim levels, so the more expensive the level is, the better the overall design would be.
Price and Release Date
If everything goes as planned, the new Tundra may start at around $37,000 for the base trim. The highest one, the Capstone, may reach $80,000. The release date is likely taking place in 2023, but the exact date remains a mystery.
