New 2024 Toyota Tundra Rumors, Electric, Release Date – The 2024 Toyota Tundra full-size pickup vehicle received a significant facelift in 2024. The third-generation Tundra is a big deal since it has a new architecture, turbocharged powertrains (including a hybrid), redesigned aesthetics, and many technological updates. Many of the truck’s components are already being used (or will be short) in Lexus vehicles.
It was Toyota’s way of showing off the current version of the Tundra on a gorgeous ranch outside San Antonio, Texas, where the vehicle is manufactured. During our initial test drive, we saw a distinct Lexus presence in several of the higher trim levels, which impressed us. This new third-generation Tundra could sway consumers in Toyota’s favour, unlike its smaller Tacoma brother, which has failed to dominate its sector.
2024 Toyota Tundra Redesign
Since the departing Tundra has been with us for almost a decade, anything new is going to be shocking. With a muscular look and Toyota’s “Technical Muscle” slogan, the Tundra resembles the Chevrolet Silverado. The huge grille, which varies in style depending on the trim level, is flanked by two angular headlights.
There are six levels of service, ranging from the most basic to the most lavish. All-terrain 18-inch Falken Wildpeak all-terrain tires and the TRD Pro model’s famous “TOYOTA” grille make it our pick for the best off-road vehicle. The Platinum and 1794 Edition grades, which come with dazzling 20-inch wheels and more chrome exterior accents, are good for people who want to look like they’re in a high-end car.
The inside of the departing 2024 Toyota Tundra was the most evident of all the areas in which it was lacking. Consider this new model to take care of it. The entry-level SR5 model comes standard with an eight-inch touchscreen, but Toyota’s gorgeous new 14-inch device is available as an option.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard on the new touchscreen, but we don’t believe you’ll need them because the new entertainment system has a Human Machine Interface and is so easy to operate. The new Lexus NX has the same high-tech features as this interface, including a voice-controlled virtual intelligent assistant, cloud-based native navigation, and user profiles that remember your preferences.
The 5.7-liter V8 engine of the 2024 Toyota Tundra has finally been laid to rest, replaced by a familiar 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that is offered in two different flavors. When we talk about this engine, we refer to it as “familiar” because it’s basically an updated version of the Lexus LS 500’s powerplant. It’s hard to imagine a more outlandish beginning!
There is a significant increase in torque over the normal V6’s 389 hp and 479 lb-ft, with power going to either a 4×2 or 4-wheel drive system via a silky smooth 10-speed automatic gearbox, which is also shared with the LS 500. Like any Lexus drivetrain should be, everything is silky smooth and virtually noiseless. However, we were thrilled with the new V6’s deep growl, so we doubt anybody will shed a tear when the V8 is no longer available.
2024 Toyota Tundra Release Date and Price
However, if the outgoing model is any indication, the 2024 Toyota Tundra should start higher than its less-equipped American competitors and top out at a less outrageous amount. With a starting price almost $34,000 higher than that of a Ford F-150, the previous Tundra SR began at $34,125. Nevertheless, even with the most expensive Platinum and 1794 trims, it still cost $48,345 less than the most expensive F-150 Limited. We’ll have to wait for official information on the price of Toyota’s hybrid powertrain and other enhancements before we can make an informed decision.
