The redesign of the full-size truck is definitely one of the most anticipated things for the next year and among many novelties that we are about to see is also a diesel version. Considering that most full-size trucks already feature such powertrain, including Ford F-150 and Ram 1500, this seems like a natural thing. Details about the 2021 Toyota Tundra Diesel are still a mystery, so we will rely on rumors in this article. Therefore, take it with a big reserve.
- Great towing capacity
- Good mpg ratings
- Spacious and well-equipped cabin
- Potentially high price
- Probably won’t come
When it comes to the exterior design, the 2021 Toyota Tundra Diesel is not expected to be any different than the standard version. The next year we will bring a completely new model, with a completely new design. The Japanese manufacturer has developed a completely new platform, codenamed F1.
This is a modular architecture and it will be used not just for full-size counterparts like Land Cruiser and Sequoia, but for mid-size models like Tacoma as well. In terms of the styling, we count on a quite conventional aesthetical approach.
The testing model still wears a heavy camouflage. Also, the latest reports are suggesting that the new generation could bring back a single cab design as well.
When it comes to interior design, expectations for the new model are pretty big. The current generation has been around for way too long and its cabin looks really outdated. Therefore, the new model should come with significant improvements, with a new dashboard that utilizes hi-quality materials and comes with far more attractive shapes.
On the other side, the current model already features one of the most spacious and comfortable cabins, so we presume the new 2021 Toyota Tundra Diesel will continue in the same way. Naturally, we count on loads of new tech features, including the latest infotainment system with smartphone integration and other goodies.
The next-generation Tundra is about to come with numerous novelties and various reports suggest a diesel version as well. Most likely, that would be a 5.0-liter turbodiesel from Cummins, which is good for about 310 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque.
However, this is still a rumor and chances to see this engine are really small, especially if we consider that the company is working on a new hybrid powertrain.
2021 Toyota Tundra Diesel Release Date and Price
