We have waited for 2021 Toyota Tundra for a long time, but it still has not came changed as we expected. So, we should satisfy almost the same design as before, significant changes in detail, and two great trim versions. Finally, there is a well-known and robust engine under the hood.
- The model has an excellent and robust design.
- There is a large engine under the hood.
- The model has not been changed for a long time.
- There are no differences from competitors.
Since the last refreshment happened in 2014, we expected that 2021 Toyota Tundra would come as a fully redesigned model. However, we must wait one more year for it, and this Tundra comes with only a few changes in details. It continues with a simple dark look, large front grille, and name TUNDRA on the tailgate.
Clean body lines and angular headlights will be a sign of recognition for next year’s model, too. The model continues as the main competitor to Ford F-150 and similar models as before. When it comes to the trim levels, they are great for this model. The manufacturer will offer two unique trim versions.
The first one is Trail Special Edition based on SR5 trim, the black color of the chassis, massive chrome grille, and color-keyed surround. The second trim is Nightshade Special Edition with dark-chrome grille, black mirror caps, door handles, and dark-chrome badging.
The base model of the 2021 Toyota Tundra will indeed have the same design and appearance as before. It came after the refreshment that the model had in 2014, and nothing has changed since then. You will see an excellent gauge cluster, a modern steering wheel, and improved technology.
We are sure that they will improve everything they can in terms of technology. Higher trims will have impressive upgrades in design so that you can expect dark upholstery or leather, a redesigned dashboard, and great details.
2021 Toyota Tundra Engine
As in other parts of the 2021 Toyota Tundra, even the engine has not been changed for a long time. This time it comes with the same, well-known engine, which we used to see on similar models made in this factory. It includes 5.7-liter V8 with 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque.
The machine comes along with the six-speed automatic transmission and as a rear-wheel driving system. The same engine you can see in Toyota Tacoma, too. It is well-known as strong enough to drive large trucks like those two. You will be able to order an all-wheel driving system, again and some trim versions like the TRD Pro model will have Fox shocks, off-road suspension, and rugged tires.
It is expected that this model you can drive only on rough terrains. Toyota will not forget the safety system as well. You will have the same technology as on previous models, including adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warnings, and automatic high-beam lights. Unfortunately, the model has not improved the safety system in some parts, so it still gets low rates on test driving.
2021 Toyota Tundra Release Date and Price
If you have waited for a new design of 2021 Toyota Tundra and feel a little disappointed, do not be. The fully redesigned model comes next year. This time you should be patient and enjoy a model that they have made until now. The price of Tundra is $35,000, but high trim versions could increase the price up to $50,000.
