Numerous stylistic changes are shown in new images of the next-generation 2023 Toyota Tundra. First of all, the new pickup truck looks to have a more appealing appearance than the outgoing model. The next-generation Tundra will be built on the same modular platform as the Tacoma pickup and Sequoia and 4Runner SUVs.
Based on the logo on the tailgate and the wheels, the spotted prototype looks to be an off-road-oriented TRD Pro trim level. In any event, some reports indicate that the 5.7-liter V8 gasoline engine is gone, in favor of a new twin-turbo V6. A hybrid version is also in the works, but it will be available as an option. The following outlines everything we know so far about the upcoming Tundra and its upgrades.
2023 Tundra Exterior Redesign
The new 2023 Toyota Tundra will remain one of the segment’s top models. This pickup truck’s look will be new and more modern. While the overall form stays the same, the front end of the next model has been completely new. The design is evocative of the Toyota 4Runner SUV in general.
It has a huge Toyota logo on the front and a big black grille with hexagonal openings. Furthermore, a new feature is the LED light strip behind the Toyota logo and the somewhat smaller LED headlights. Additionally, the truck will arrive with subdued black fender extensions and beautiful black wheels. The TRD Pro model will include additional amenities and a new exterior color.
The upcoming 2023 Toyota Tundra interior will also undergo significant modifications. To begin, the new model will be far more comfortable than the existing model while retaining the same seating layout. Everyone will be able to sit comfortably in the Double Cab variant, which has a front shoulder space of up to 65.5 inches. Moreover, Tundra offers ample legroom, particularly in the back.
If extra space is what you need, a CrewMax cab is available. Additionally, Toyota is anticipated to make certain technological advancements. Certain previous-generation technologies, like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, will remain standard. Toyota will also update its Safety Sense P package.
There is presently no information known on the 2023 Toyota Tundra and its engine lineup. Many believe that the future truck will include a variety of alternative powertrains to replace the already obsolete 5.7-liter V8 gasoline engine. The first possibility is a twin-turbo V6 engine, which is currently available in a number of Toyota cars. This engine should produce around the same amount of horsepower as the one it replaces.
The V8 engine produces 380 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. The range may expand in the future to include new hybrid technologies. According to speculations, the next-generation Tundra will be using a potent 3.5-liter engine from the Lexus LS 500. If this is accurate, the Tundra Hybrid will have a maximum output of 450 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. Additional information will be made available in the following months.
2023 Toyota Tundra Price and Release Date
The forthcoming 2023 Toyota Tundra will now be more expensive than the current model. This indicates that the beginning price will be in the range of $36,000. The range-topping TRD Pro trim level, on the other hand, will cost above $50,000. Sales will begin later in 2022, perhaps in the fall.
