The Detroit News

Pontiac — Toyota Motor Corp. used the opening Tuesday of the Detroit Automobile Dealers Association's Motor Bella to showcase the next generation of its full-size Tundra pickup truck.

The Japanese automaker revealed the 2022 model Sunday on NBC and online.

The new Tundra is the first Toyota truck to offer a hybrid powertrain, and only the second to feature a multi-link rear suspension with coil springs.

It also drops the longstanding V-8 powerplant with a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 that pumps out 389 horsepower. A hybrid option boosts the number of ponies to 437. A 10-speed automatic transmission is standard; towing capacity is 12,000 pounds.

The all new 2022 Toyota Tundra is on display at Motor Bella in Pontiac.

Other features include an aluminum reinforced composite bed, available in 5.5, 6.5, and 8.1-foot lengths. Four-door Double and CrewMax cabs are available.

The new Tundra will go on sale later this year.
