This is the time of year when fans get to debate many different topics.
For example, what team will win the NCAA basketball tournament. Or what players our favorite NFL teams will draft. Maybe we try and predict when our areas will hit spring and summer weather.
And yes, we make predictions and debate what the next model year might bring for new vehicles.
Like the 2022 Toyota Tundra.
2022 Tundra specs
Official details could come in all at once or could trickle in a piece at a time.
Looks as though we are beginning to shape together a next-gen Toyota Tundra, though.
I suspect we will see both Double Cab and CrewMax again. Rumors and spy shots suggest a new cab configuration – CrewMax with a longer bed than the current 5.5’ length. This is something truck enthusiasts have been asking about for many years. They should be pleased.
Enough talk is swirling in Toyota circles that it is fair to expect a Twin Turbo V6 engine and a Tundra hybrid option as well.
Look for a refined and modern interior filled with the latest safety, convenience, and technology.
How about new transmission, though?
I have heard multiple rumors, but nothing is substantiated until Toyota releases official specifications. Many people suspect some form of a 10-speed automatic transmission. We will have to see for sure once Toyota informs the world.
Time to see what Tundra fans and owners prefer.
People comment on 2022 Toyota Tundra
I went to the most knowledgeable fan bases I could think of while searching for information on the new Tundra – online fan forum TundraCrew, my Toyotajeff YouTube channel, and my Toyotajeff Instagram page.
Their suggestions for new Tundra transmission were great – and all over the board.
Mason has a big 2022 Tundra wish list. “425hp/425tq. 20+mpgs. 8 speed transmission. 2,000lbs payload, 12,000lbs towing. Better sound system, more comfortable seats, reclining rear seats again. Rear locker at a minimum.”
“Hybrid turbo diesel with a solid 8 speed or more transmission. Kinda dreaming but it would be nice.” Added Jesus.
Mikey votes for 8-speed transmission. Kevin put in a vote for 10-speed.
Angel is looking at hybrid. “Want to see hybrid with 20+mpg and assume it will have CVT.”
Diesel option, 10 speed transmission and more powerful stereo system.” Offered Austin.

Dustin was to the point. “I don’t care as long as you upgrade the 6-speed transmission.”
Perhaps the quote of the day goes to Monte. “I trust that no matter what Toyota does it will be reliable. We need to have faith.”
Time for your Tundra thoughts
As you can see, opinions and predictions are varied, and quite frankly, fascinating.
I cannot wait for the official Toyota announcement on next-gen Tundra details. The big reveal cannot come fast enough for me – and for many, many truck fans all over the world.
Are you looking forward to the new 2022 Tundra and are you seriously thinking about buying one when it comes out?
What are you looking forward to most: exterior / interior styling, miles per gallon ratings, new features, performance, or something else?
Will you consider the Tundra Hybrid when it is available, and if not, what concerns do you have about hybrids?
