The next 2016 Toyota Tundra is coming with a slice of new redesign, both exterior and interior, and, of course, with great engine performance.
The new Tundra has very similar styling as the old model, but we can see improvements in the order of powertrain and engine lineup. This new platform that Toyota started with 2014th model, compared to the previous generation has a 5 % lighter construction and with a new kind of ladder chassis it is 30 % stronger.
This tough, reliable and solid truck with a wide range of engines makes it a perfect choice for people who want a dependable car.
The 2016 Toyota Tundra will remain with the same four engine of the current generation and with a brand new diesel. The base engine stays with 4,0 – liter V – 6 with a new engine management system which will be able to return a better fuel consumption and keep the power delivery constant. Also, it can offer 270 hp and 278 pound – feet of torque.
2016 Toyota Tundra Diesel
So, this is a part where the big news is for all Tundra fans. It seems that Toyota will use diesel technology into its full-size truck segment. It is going to be a 5.0 – liter V – 8 with a turbocharger, and it will be able to deliver around 300 hp and more than 500 lb – ft of torque. According to the previous reports there could be a hint that the Tundra’s new oil – burner will be supplied by famous diesel unit manufacturer, the Cummins.
Using lighter materials in exterior design in combining with this engine, Toyota will improve fuel economy and higher speed, which seems is the main reason why Toyota decided to redesign this model.
For diesel option, in exterior design, there will be changes in the front area with bigger air intakes, so that the cooling system can be improved, but for the other versions there will be almost no changes in this segment. The changes will be noticeable in the rims with much bigger standard wheels (19 – inches in diameter) and a wider spectrum of alloys. Thanks to LED lights in front and at the back and Xenon headlights, which will be used on the high end models, it’s given most improvement on the look.
There will be minor updates on the interior of the 2016 Toyota Tundra which will mostly include enhancements over the materials and more and better equipment in the high end models.
The high models of the Tundra will have surround sound system, automatic climate and satellite navigation, but the base car model will only include an audio system with manual air conditioning.

Price is going to be around $25,000 for a base model and for high models the price will be around $45,000 for the TRD Pro versions.
