Toyota’s Tundra is one of the company’s best-selling offerings and is probably the strongest car available by the manufacturer in the market. The Tundra is due for an upgrade and that is set to happen with next year’s upcoming release, the 2017 Toyota Tundra. Here is what we know about 2017 Tundra release date, pricing, engine and design info.
A few leaked images of the new car tell us what to expect, although not a sufficient amount of information has been provided regarding the much-anticipated truck
The 2017 Tundra is expected to look much like the previous release. What you could expect to see is some changes along the front grill of the car and with the ten bumper, which will suit the new design. We also expect new headlights and taillights on the new truck.
The new truck is still rumored to retain its masculine and sturdy posture. On the insides, the car is expected to remain much the same, with some minor aesthetic improvements to the dashboard. The insides will also host improvements to the entertainment and safety fittings over this year’s release.
2017 Tundra’s seats will see touches of leather and soft materials with higher end models.
The primary model of the 2017 Tundra will be made available with a 5.7-liter V8 engine that provides 810 horsepower. Post the release of the primary model you will see another two variants; 4.0-liter V6 engine that provides 270 horsepower and a 4.6-liter V8 engine that produces 310 horsepower.
There has been no official information on a diesel variant of the 2017 Tundra. But if Toyota does decide to come up with one, we expect to see it with a 5.0-liter turbo-charged engine producing 300 horsepower.
Pricing and Release Date
Toyota’s 2017 Tundra is expected to make its debut next year, but we have no affirmation about when exactly it will be rolled out by the company. You may see the new truck come out sometime mid-next year.
Relying on the pricing scheme from former generations, the 2017 Tundra should start from $30,000 for the baseline model and go all the way up to $45,000 for the top tier.
