Exterior of the new 2016 Tundra
The designers of the new 2016 Toyota Tundra led care about materials and the overall weight of the vehicle. Lighter materials in the making will contribute to lower the weight of the car and thus to improved fuel economy. This new vehicle will have a stronger chassis, that is made out of a single part. The wheels will be made of alloy and it is supposed to be a good refreshment when it comes to the model.
The chassis will be stronger, with the goal to tow more cargo. The front end will change slightly and have a new slimmer front grille, as well as a different front bumper which will now be the same color as the other parts of the chassis, rather than being chromed like on the 2015 model. This beast will have big 19-inch alloy wheels.
Interior of 2016 Toyota Tundra
The interior will be modern and comfortable, with plenty of space for the passengers and the cargo. There is always a good point with trucks, much more space, especially with vehicles with a longer cabine, like this one. There will be some techonogical advantages also, like satellite navigation, automatic climate control and the leather upholstery is something to look forward to.
There is also some talk about wood inside of the cabin, that should come as a standard. The cabin can hold five people with ease and besides them, many of baggage. This is the first truck that can hold five people.
Engine and performance
The main reason why the company decided to launch the 2016 Toyota Tundra diesel engine is the desire to improve fuel economy. All companies are in the race to improve fuel economy and closer to the official recommended standards. The next generation of Toyota Tundra will get the same Cummins diesel powerplant as the Nissan Titan pickup.
We are talking about 5.0 liter diesel V8 from Cummins. This will give the car around 300 horsepower and from 300 to 500 lb-ft of torque. This will give 2016 Toyota Tundra a big advantage compared to the other trucks. The towing capacity will be more than 12,000 pounds for sure, but it will also provide a 10-30% better fuel consumption than the previous V8.
2016 Toyota Tundra Price and release date
The Toyota Tundra 2016 original release date was supposed to be the end of 2015, but the release is postponed. The expected price is somewhere around $25,000 for the base trim level and the highest we are talking about is around $45.000 for the Tundra TRD Pro. The expected colors are: Blue Ribbon Metallic, Black, Radiant Red, Magnetic Gray Metallic, Silver Sky Metallic, Super White, Sunset Bronze Mica, Barcelona Red Metallic. Not every color will be available on every trim.
