Even though the Toyota Tundra 2015 has barely hit the roads throughout the American soil and has, already, been officially announced its new, improved version- the 2016 Toyota Tundra. Why is that so, we honestly don’t know. We were satisfied with the current Tundra, even though, we always consider that the team from Toyota have much more to offer, mainly in creating a mid-sized pickup truck of a much more innovative design and mechanics. Having faced with the very fierce and very ruthless, fast growing, competition, we’re assuming that they, simply, didn’t have a choice than to opt for a re-launching their beloved Tundra.
Anyway, let’s see what exact changes the Toyota’s designers have prepared for us this time.
Interior, Exterior & Appearance of new Tundra
Although, there are available very small amount of the officially being confirmed information, regarding newly refreshed 2016 Toyota Tundra, we are forced to hear what the rumors have to say regarding this re-launched variant. The only thing that we know for sure that the 2016 Toyota Tundra will come along with a shiny, new form. We are assuming that with that sentence, the Japanese car maker, wanted to say that a certain amount of the cosmetic modifications are going to suffer the exterior and the interior.
Let start with analyzing the refreshments have been done exterior wise. First and foremost, the size and, generally speaking, the shape will remain pretty the same like the current available model. We shouldn’t be so surprised by that fact, actually, to retain a familiar exterior design was a pretty wise decision, although not that brave, but understandable, with having in our minds that the outward appearance of the Tundra series has always been among it’s the strongest points. That, in reality, means that the newly made Tundra’s exterior will convey the impression of strength and power by offering bold lines and metallic detailing, which will be adorned its sizable frame.
However, the front area is intended to be slightly refreshed, with having somehow bigger air intakes and a totally restyled grille. These modifications, not only will lead to improving on the internal cooling system, but will, also, provide for the entire a mid-sized pickup truck quite handsome and utterly modern appeal. In order to make the long story quite short, the exterior of the 2016 Toyota Tundra will be refreshingly very different though still identifiable as a part of the same series.
When it comes to the 2016 Toyota Tundra’s interior design, absolutely no one considered to be among the most powerful ones in this particular segment, but always provided a decent level of quality that was highly reputable and adorned by the people who didn’t need just a workhorse. So, in light of all been mentioned above, the interior of the new Toyota Tundra 2016 will remain just as luxurious as always has been, having with things, like: an automatic climate control coupled with full leather upholstery and some pretty imaginatively done, wooden hints and slightly upgraded satellite navigation.
2016 Toyota Tundra Engine
As far as the engine, there aren’t planned any refreshments to be made. So, the same three engines from the 2015 Tundra model will be repeated. The first motor option should be a 4.0L V6 engine that’s able to pump about a 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque. The second one- a 4.6l, V8 engine option will be able to generate about a 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque and will be offered as an optional one. And, finally, the third supposed to be a 5.7, V-8 power plant option, which general strength has, already, been estimated at 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque.
It is speculated that under the hood of the 2016 Toyota Tundra will be placed and a diesel variant of a powertrain. If it turned out to be true, then this lovable diesel Toyota pickup, will be the very first of its entire class. At the same time, it will be a tremendous success and a great acknowledgment of Toyota engineers, which will finally manage to improve its reputation in the mid-size pickup truck segment of vehicles.
Release Date & Price of 2016 Toyota Tundra
The premiere of the 2016 Toyota Tundra is expecting to happen during this year, while the price tag shouldn’t be more that the price for the available mode-around $25,000 for a base model.
