2022 Toyota Tundra Highlighted Features

The new diesel-powered Tundra is the first major upgrade since the 2007 model. The vehicle is currently under wraps. But we have confirmation for the 2022 model year—expected this fall.

The Tundra will carry the new i-Force MAX name along with great features.
There are some safety features we can probably count on. A bed with rails for securing cargo will be available in three trim levels.

  • SR Double Cab
  • TRD Sport CrewMax Limited
  • Limited Double Cab

Two Powertrains

The executive vice president of Toyota’s North America sales is Bob Carter. He told MotorTrend, “a core powertrain that’s substantially more powerful in terms of horsepower and torque than the current V-8.”

This suggests the new engine will be more powerful than the 5.7-liter V-8 that produces 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque.

Will this new engine be an upgraded V-8 or a turbocharged V-6?
The new diesel engine is expected to produce at least 275 horsepower and 500 lb.-ft of torque. But, word is that the Tundra will have an even higher performance spec of 425 horsepower and 610 lb-ft of torque.

In either case, the diesel engine is a long-term solution to reducing emissions.

Diesel Reliability

Toyota diesel reliability is solid. Diesel engines are fuel-efficient, reliable, and have low emissions. As a result, Toyota has embraced this technology with its new Tundra diesel truck in 2022.

One of Toyota’s goals was to make the new Tundra eco-friendly. This new diesel truck will provide an affordable option for those looking to reduce emissions and fuel consumption.

No matter what type of driving you do, Toyota’s i-Force MAX engine will provide a powerful ride. The new diesel engine means driving further distances between refueling.

The Toyota Tundra is one of many vehicles that offer a powerful, reliable engine. The i-Force MAX diesel engine is one you’ll be able to count on. To keep your new ride running in tip-top shape come by for some Toyota diesel services.

Toyota Diesel Services

The process starts by checking the engine oil level. Then a compression test ensures the tightness of all the bolts on the engine. Brakes are checked for repair needs and performance levels.

The clutch and manual transmission are checked for slippage, harsh engagement, or other problems. The steering system is checked for alignment, tightness of bolts, and ball joints wear rate. Suspension is also inspected for excessive wear and tear.

Besides the inspection process, the Toyota diesel truck services can include:

  • Changing oil filters changing fuel filters
  • Replacing air filter
  • Changing brake fluid
  • Engine tuning and calibration

These services are available as warranty services. The warranty includes engine replacement. But only if something goes wrong with the diesel truck’s original power plant.
