    I wanted a faster vehicle so I also bought a Chevy SS... because 4 door sedans with big V8’s are hilarious.
    Yeah Ford already does that pretty convincingly.

    So are the bumps on the hood that we've seen from the photo for the turbo or more for aerodynamics?

    Second photo we seen with those fenders. I would say that’s what the new truck will look like along the side.

    I'd love to see the TRD Pro rendering of it.

    That just looks to me like a terrible photoshop onto the current gen cab and they changed a couple other small things like when they photoshopped the grill onto the current Titan. I'd expect an all new cab design

    It wouldn't be very smart to compete against the world's best selling truck with an identical motor. Toyota really needs a "world beater" or I dont really see a good reason to consider the next Tundra. Just my two cents

    You don't know that at all. 2022 Tundra will have recall, recall, recall too. See what I did there.

    That's last generation ford tt3.5. Current is 400 hp/ 500lb-ft.

    Power boost is 430 hp/570 lb-ft.

    Call it, Friendo.
    Grille looks accurate I’d say. Rendering is missing the hood bulges and they’ve got the 3 width lights up front but none out back. I think a college intern that takes public transit whipped this up on his 3rd day. That rear 3/4 photo is sexy though, whether it’s accurate or not.

    Maybe it will be a 4.0l TT. A stroked 3.5.

    So many good opinions Gents. Honestly, where else can you get this information and speculation.
    I read that some are comparing the Tundra truck to f250s or 2500s or Similar trucks. There are plenty of hard working Guys who own businesses, Are managers, Have Landscaping companies, Do estimates…. A wknd Dad who hauls a Camper on occasions , maybe gets mulch or lumber and doesn’t need to tow a 15k trailer everywhere.
    That’s the area the The Tundra is looking to make the groove in. If they Carve that out, improve on it, expand it to reach some more buyers with better mpg…. payload…. and Better style- That isn’t a bad thing!
    Obviously!!!!!!!!!!!!! The New Tundra will be better than What is available previously. Would be pretty fn Dumb now wouldn’t it to hold off for so many years , only to make a Equivalent design that’s slightly different.

    Toyota knows what the Barbecue cooking, Beer drinking, Skinny peddle pounding Redblooded American wants! Now if we can just get to it already- that would be great! All this smoke and mirrors is for the Daisy May tinkle pants Bs Cooperate fellas.

    Let’s Get it On already Mr T! Open that Can of WoopAss!

    I find it so funny everyone is needing specs now, even though for over a year now we've known it wouldn't be released until at least Q4. Maybe I'm in the minority but I don't plan out buying a vehicle seriously 6 months out. So if I wanted a new vehicle now even if the 2022 specs were out of this world I would get something now. Specs are meaningless, I want trucks on the lot and as of yet they haven't deviated anything yet from planning pertaining to that since it's not Q4 yet.

    Sure it's nice to know, but a new spec release doesn't change what's in my driveway.

    I would not be surprised if the 3.5 tt numbers get bumped up for the Tundra. The land cruiser isn't coming to the U.S. as of now. The rest of the world isn't as concerned with power as we are. They could easily bump those numbers up for the U.S market so that it beats the competition, just add a little more boost and tuning and it beats anything else out there.

    If it’s a fully boxed frame I’ll probably get one, which I’m assuming it is, to accommodate the rear link mounts. It’ll be my off road/camping vehicle. Junk hauling and towing will be secondary. I plan to move closer to the mountains in one or two years too so I guess the turbos could help. I’ll satisfy my V8 supercharger growling urge with my Lexus. Sequoia could work too but I’ll wait to see what nifty stuff they do with the IRS.

    Junk hauling and “dirty” work is what my 2007 Tundra is going to be doing if I get a new one.

    I have to give you 4 Pinocchio's for that meme. As much as we've been bashing Fords here lately, the truth is, without Henry Ford I believe we wouldn't be the America we are today without him. :thumbsup:

    409 hp is fine by me. Unlike a lot of guys around here, I couldn't care less about a hybrid version or some goosed up model to compete with the Ford Raptor, I don't want any of that crap. Give me a trouble free driveline with a good powerband. Turbos really help lower the rpm of peak torque which consequently gives you more horsepower at a lower rpm as Coal Dragger showed. That gives a much broader powerband which means better towing performance, no more revving the heck out of it to get it to go like the 5.7. Make it get 23-25 mpg highway and fix the godawful infotainment system and I'll be happy as a pig in slop.

    Something I haven't seen mentioned is that it'd better run on regular gas, no premium, not even when towing like the Ford. It would be a major, major screwup by Toyota to have it require premium fuel. Paying 50 cents a gallon more for premium negates any benefit from better fuel mileage and would turn off about 95% of their target buyers.

    Are you just talking about sound quality or are you having other issues with your truck?

    The sound quality is fine, I'm talking about the interface itself. They need to put in apple car play. Mine's a 2016 so they might have improved it some since. Also the XM radio loses reception all the time, it'll lose reception any time I'm near a tree and it's blocking the line of sight to the satellite.

    The Toyota Entune layout is awful, a third grader could design a better system. They obviously didn't put much effort into designing a competitive infotainment system, and I'm not an audiophile or technophile, I just want something easy and intuitive to use.

    I’m very close to buying a new Tundra, I’ll keep the reg cab short 2007 for everyday use and hauling truck items if need.
    The new truck will be a 21 or 22…. I’m just waiting to see the new truck and all the hype. Maybe it’s worth the wait, maybe not. However, saving more towards a 21 isn’t hurting me either. I’m sure somewhere there will be a new 21 available.
