In 2007, the second-generation Toyota Tundra made its big debut with the third-generation model following in 2014. Since then, the Tundra has received a few updates, but has not gone through a complete redesign. Now, however, we have learned that a redesigned Toyota Tundra should be coming fairly soon.
At the Chicago Auto Show in February, when asked when the new Tundra would come out, Jack Hollis, general manager of Toyota in North America, said, “I can’t give you an announcement yet today because we haven’t even finalized it. But I will tell you this. It’s important to our lineup to get to the Tundra. I’m really excited about where we’re going with that.”
Toyota unveiled both the 2007 and 2014 Tundra at the Chicago Auto Show, so perhaps we will see the fourth-generation pickup truck make its debut at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show, too. Based on the seven-year pattern Toyota has set, we think the new truck will be a 2021 model.
What kinds of new features do you hope to see in the new Toyota Tundra? Here at Midwest Toyota, we think the Tundra’s new design is likely to come with more powertrain options and improved fuel economy.
