The official 2022 Toyota Tundra specs and details will finally be revealed this Sunday. Some fans expect two more teasers to come out within these next few days.
Remember Toyota Tundra's interior reveal back in July? The company hinted its release date through the wireless charger feature and smartphone time "9:19," translated as September 19. Now, Toyota USA officially confirmed the date through a three-second video advertisement. The video was aptly described as "The one you've been waiting for."
With the upcoming debut of the new Tundra, watch out for some of these exciting features previously confirmed and leaked.

JBL speakers installed beneath the grab handles would complement the infotainment system. Toyota Tundra also teased its rear power window, a feature unique in modern cars.
2. TDR Pro Model and Coil-Spring Suspension
Another report speculated the 2022 Toyota Tundra's TDR (Toyota Racing Development) gear paired with Fox Racing pieces. The vehicle might carry a TRD front skid plate, Falken Wildpeak all-terrain tires sized 285/65, a bulky anti-roll bar, and Fox shock absorbers.
Rumors also said that 2022 Toyota Tundra would use new coil-spring suspension systems similar to Sierra and GM Silverado. The new system should improve ride quality and boost off-road power.
1. Twin-Turbo V6 iForce MAX Engine
Several rumors also said that the 2022 Toyota Tundra would use a twin-turbo V6 iForce MAX engine. According to Motor1, the engine should produce 409 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. Tundra might also use a 10-speed automatic gearbox. Internet speculations predict that the Tundra engine will have a hybrid variant later this year.
It is worth noting that two empty slots remain at the bottom of the photo gallery on Toyota's official news page. Both are marked "coming soon." This has led fans to believe that two other major leaks could drop at any time. Fans hope this would be an interior teaser or engine preview.
