A world-renowned car manufacturer Toyota known for, besides all else, its quality trucks will come out with the new Tundra in 2019 which will probably come as a hybrid. Until then 2018 Toyota Tundra will come refreshed since the latest change of this model was in 2014. Besides some cosmetics changes, the truck will also get a new engine.
2018 Toyota Tundra – New Cabin
Toyota won’t pay too much attention to redesigning this model. Since the only changes of the exterior is revised grille and restyled headlights in the front. While in the back, there are no expected changes at all. They are pretty confident that even these small changes in the outer look of 2018 Toyota Tundra will increase the sales. The cabin, on the other hand, might go through some important design changes. They want the interior to be much easier on the eye with new color palette while integrating upgraded infotainment system. To improve driving experience there are more great features like power sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control. While blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic lights will certainly be of help.
2018 Toyota Tundra – Cummins Diesel Engine
The only major thing that 2018 Toyota Tundra will have unlike its predecessors is the whole new engine. Besides standard 4.6-liter V8 and 5.7-liter V8 engine with 310 and 381 horsepower paired with the six-speed automatic gearbox, Toyota lineup will become richer with 5.0-liter V8 Cummins diesel engine. We already saw this engine on Nissan Titan XD with the output of 310 horsepower and 555 lb-ft of torque. On its own, it isn’t enough to change driving experience, towing capacity or fuel consumption for Tundra. But with new eight-speed automatic transmission numbers can change in its favor. This transmission Japanese car manufacturer already used with success on Lexus LX570 and Toyota Land Cruise models.
2018 Toyota Tundra – Final Thought
In conclusion, Toyota with exterior changes doesn’t have too much to be happy about until they release a whole new Tundra model in 2019. But with new engine and price we can expect to be around the same as the current model, 2017 Ram Rampage is the only thing that can get in the way of Toyotas sales going up.
