Toyota Needs To Update Tundra's Interior and Why It May Go Hybrid vs Diesel
Torque News reader Kevin sent us a comment under our Tundra predictions story and wrote that truck can never have enough storage as people use it to move things. Here are Kevin's opinions on the future updates Toyota needs to do on Tundra.
Toyota needs to update the interior of the Tundra truck with more modern features, better materials and a better design. When they did the mid model change in 2014 they took away some of the storage bins, like the dual glove compartment and armrest storage.
You can never have enough storage in a truck.
I believe they will up the Tundra engines to utilize the D4S system found in other Toyota trucks as well as the Atkinson mode to save fuel. The V6 Twin Turbo that is found in the new Lexus LS can be returned for light truck duty. I don't think Toyota will go with a Diesel, but offer a Hybrid option.
Diesel regulations are getting too tough and Toyota is the leader in Hybrids.
The exterior styling should follow how the Tacoma looks. The current Tundra needs to have its styling updated and shrink the grill.
Toyota also needs to shorten the time between new models in their truck division. It has been 10 years for the Tacoma. The Seqouia hasn't changed since 2007. The
4Runner is getting old and has been around since 2010.
The Tundra had a slight update in 2014 but is basically the same Truck.
