What to Expect with 2024 Toyota Tundra

2024 Tundra is coming soon. This is what to expect.

This is the time of year when we begin learning what will be redesigned, refreshed, or straight carried over for the new model year. We will also find out what individual features, technology, and option packages will be added.

Toyota Tacoma is completely new from the ground up (I particularly am obsessing over TRD PreRunner and Trailhunter at the moment).

We are not really sure yet what will happen with Toyota 4Runner and Sequoia.

The same goes for 2024 Toyota Tundra. But we can make some strong hypotheses based on previous year-to-year changes.

2024 Toyota Tundra Changes

Since Tundra was redesigned recently, for the 2022 year, I would not expect any changes to its two powertrains.

We can look for an i-FORCE 3.4-liter twin-turbo V6 matched with a 10-speed automatic transmission. This produces (other than SR trim level) 389 horsepower and 479 lb.-ft. torque.

The i-FORCE MAX Tundra Hybrid utilizes this same twin-turbo but employs a parallel hybrid system with a 48-horsepower electric motor and a sealed nickel-metal hydride drive battery. Same 10-speed automatic transmission. But Tundra i-FORCE MAX has much more power – 437 horsepower and 583 lb.-ft. torque.

2024 Tundra TRD Pro

We should be learning what the unique signature 2024 TRD Pro color is for Toyota Tundra, Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Sequoia, and Toyota 4Runner (some fans were upset that the color was not announced with the world premiere of 2024 Tacoma last month).

We should find out sometime this Summer.

How this affects 2024 Tundra is that Toyota should replace Solar Octane as the special color and introduce a new one in its place (I have a few favorite shades I would like to see).

I would still expect to see Ice Cap white and Midnight Black Metallic, as they are staples each year. Not sure what other color will be used. Maybe Magnetic Gray, perhaps Celestial Silver.

2024 Toyota Tacoma TRD PreRunner Underground back end profile

I would love 2024 Toyota Tundra to add Underground on any and all of its trims for 2024 – including TRD Pro. Underground just looks that good.

Solar Octane is the outgoing 2023 Tundra TRD Pro color. It should leave the TRD Pro lineup. But we could see this bright orange paint on other trim levels in the Tundra lineup. This is the tradition lately for outgoing TRD Pro colors.

I know many Tundra fans have been waiting for their Solar Octane TRD Pro, so maybe this is their chance to still get the color they want, but just on a different grade.

2024 Tundra Updates

We only had one notable addition for 2023 Tundra. This was the SX Package. Not much to mention as “new”, but I would not have expected this either since Tundra was just entirely changed the year before.

I would assume we will see a few more new tricks for 2024. Maybe one or two special edition trim levels or packages. Could be a few new technology features or capabilities.

My recent Torque News story focused on some new features for 2024 Tacoma that I would like to see on 2024 Tundra too. I hope they add the power tailgate the raises and lowers, both from the driver and passenger taillights with special “secret” buttons.

Crew Cab models for all trim levels with and 8.1' bed option would compete with the big 3. Blind Spot Monitor and Panoramic View Monitor standard on all trim levels not just the select models Toyota deems worthy for this technology.

Toyota should bring back the v8 engine for the Tundra. I have a 2021 platinum model and would be interested in a 24 or 25 model but not with a v6. Honestly if I was interested in a v6 I would select a tacoma.

Allow the SR to get the 389 HP V6 instead of just the 358 HP V6 so that it can tow up to 11,200 pounds.

Configure a version of the iForce Max hybrid for fuel economy, not just for more HP. I don’t need 437 HP, I need to save money on fuel.

An option to tune engine for better mileage, more powerful inverter, and switching to lithium batteries in hybrid which would provide more storage and weigh less. Iforce-max option in SR5

This "softex" thing that has been done should NOT be in the Limited models. My 2016 Limited has beautiful comfy leather seats. This softex is just a fancy word for vinyl. Not something I recommend. Seats are mushy and "plasticky". And the little problems need to be addressed. Wind noise, rattles, cheapy interior. I was all excited about this truck but definitely not lately.

I’m a long time tundra owner but am sitting on the sidelines I until they get serious about MPG. 22 MPG is where Ford was 10 YRS AGO! Try harder…LIFEPO4 batteries, weight reduction, smaller gas engines with larger electric motors&batteries, give us a plug in hybrid option! Just stick a highlander 2.5L hybrid in there with a bigger battery…I’ll buy it!

Ok so I wasn’t thrilled about the new change since it resembles a GMC from the side view but ol well. So Toyota can add a lot more to its vehicles compared to it competitors. As mentioned in this articles tailgate lowering and raising electronic feature would be nice. Also storage compartments under back seat and floor, maybe even somewhere in the bed of the truck would be nice with a drainage maybe to carry some nice for drinks or fishing. A Molly bed system to carry/mount things, and has anymore ever thought about putting solar panels imbedding within the vehicle maybe as a design within the truck. Oh and two most important features I would say would be improvement of gas mileage and backseat AC everyone who rides in my truck is always complaining about the backseat AC which can be improved by adding my AC vents along the roof about the doors on either side and above the rear window. I would love to be on the design team because every year Toyota doesn’t change much you would think when they redesigned the Truck they would have added many more tech along with other features.

I’m pretty disappointed with the new Tundra. I find the materials, the fit and finish to be well below that of the competition of comparable trim levels. Also, I really dislike the grills and hood shape. The massive plastic grill looks awkward and cheap. The only time it looks on is if it’s the same color as the body so that it kind of disappears.

That being said… I love Toyota. I appreciate that the company has so heavily invested in the US AND has been a good employer to millions.

So what would I like to see? Well 2024 is already a done deal. No material changes. But for 2025 I’d like to see a redesigned h front, rear end with a multifunction tailgate. On the interior just bring the quality of the seat cushions, plastics, and materials up to par with RAM and the Jeep Wagoner.

I hope they add the power tailgate the raises and lowers, both from the driver and passenger taillights, and the 2400 watt inverter that they put in the smaller Tacoma!

Hi Jeff, thanks for the article. Any idea when the official start of production is for the 2024 Tundra? Do you know how soon we'll be able to order one?

+1 for HUD on the TRD Pro, BTW, Toyota really needs to add that. It's what I'd order in a heartbeat. Will settle for Platinum with advanced package I guess...

I have a 2023 Tundra Platinum Hybrid MAX 4x4, Would love to have Platinum Hybrid Max with the TRD OFF-ROAD PKG! Miss not having the locking rear diff/crawl control MTS! Cmon Toyota.. Give us a Platinum with the hardware to match its stunning good looks!

I have a 2023 Tundra 1794, overall it’s a great truck. I am disappointed in the fuel mileage. ((non hybrid 16mpg average) and Seriously, no tow-hooks. The 14 inch center display is glitchy and doesn’t blend or interact with the 10 inch digital dash. It’s as if the two screens were designed by two different companies. At low rpm engine sounds like two cylinders missing get on it and the piped in V8 sound sounds great! Sure hope this engine lasts as long as a typical Toyota.
