Next-Gen 2022 Toyota Tundra New Cab Configuration: Excited Fans Speak Out
New details cannot get here soon enough.
The automotive world (well, and especially the truck loving world) is waiting for pretty much any information to be revealed about the next generation Toyota Tundra.
Our beloved Tundra is preparing for a brand-new redesign, with an expected retail launch timeframe of December 2021.

2021 Tundra 1794 Edition
Since Tundra has not been fully redesigned since 2007, we can plan on seeing many new styling, performance, technology, safety, and convenience changes.
At this point, enough rumors are pointing toward the introduction of a twin turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine to the Tundra lineup. Probably no more V8 engine. I expect a Tundra hybrid alternative to follow gasoline-only trucks to Toyota dealerships, but a few months behind.
We should see big jumps in horsepower, in torque, and in miles per gallon.
2022 Toyota Tundra configurations
New spy photos taken (and revealed by Autoblog) at the Toyota Tundra manufacturing plant in San Antonio have perhaps revealed a long-suspected rumor. We are more than likely going to see a 2022 Tundra CrewMax with a 6.5-foot bed.
Current 2021 Tundra cab sizes are Double Cab and CrewMax. Double Cab Tundra is offered in a 6.5-foot bed and 8-foot bed. CrewMax is only available in 5.5-foot bed.

This new 2022 Toyota Tundra configuration should prove to be very popular.
Tundra fans sound off
The addition of a longer bed to a Tundra CrewMax would give owners the best of both worlds. CrewMax has a gigantic back seat. Rear seat passengers have a whopping 42.3 inches of leg room (compared to 34.7 inches found in a Tundra Double Cab).
Matching this passenger space with another foot of bed length makes for a more versatile truck across the board.
I went to my friend trd.jon’s popular Instagram page for truck fan reactions. Nearly everyone was looking forward to this new 2022 Toyota Tundra option.
Dat_ron_rat commented. “I like where this is going! A true crew cab with a useable bed finally.”
Paytenax is ready to go. “I’m excited I’ve been wanting a crew cab but didn’t want the shorter bed they always came with.”
Bartolo had a differing opinion. “Doesn’t look good with 6.5 on Crewmax, looks too long.”
“I like this… ALOTTT.” Said Joshua.h.aguirre.
Dannyrmark asked a question we are all waiting to be answered. “When will they release this?!?!?”
I think ben_out_co is trying to talk himself out of a purchase, despite his obvious excitement. “I don’t need another rig…I don’t need another rig…”
The struggle is real for some people. “This or a 5th gen 4Runner pro!!!! I can’t decide.”
Trd.jon himself weighed in. “CrewMax…wait for it…with a 6.5’ bed. Beyond STOKED for this truck!”
Time for your Tundra thoughts
Thanks for reading everyone.
Do you think you would be interested in a next-gen Tundra? How about that CrewMax with a longer bed? Does it appeal to you?
What are you most looking forward to with 2022 Tundra? For me, I cannot wait to see the modern technology and redesigned interior cabin. Plus, I really want to be shocked by the gas mileage improvement.
What about you?
See you next story when I discuss the rumor of a leaked Toyota plug-in electric hybrid.
