The 2022 Toyota Tundra is approaching its highly anticipated global debut, which means we get to see more teasers of the Tundra.

The 2022 Toyota Tundra has had a very bumpy road when it comes to its teaser campaign.

Road Test Review – 2021 Toyota Tundra SR5 4×4 Trail Crewmax – Mean, Green, and Ready To Work

It’s no secret that the 2021 Toyota Tundra is the oldest pickup in the segment, but that has not stopped it from still being a severe threat to the American big three pickup offerings. Toyota is not content on resting on its laurels, though, and is continuing to deliver strategic updates to the Tundra in an attempt to help it stay fresh and posied.

Road Test Review – 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro – By Carl Malek

When we last met the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro it was in the middle of 2019 where we got acquainted with the truck’s rugged poise, capability, as well as some of the technology that it was missing i.e push button start, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Toyota is keen on keeping the Tundra a very viable threat to the Detroit Big 3’s supremacy in the pickup segment. But can some light cosmetic work and an infusion of new technology play a key role in helping the Tundra be a force to be reckoned with? Or is it still an outsider …

Road Test Review – 2019 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro – By Carl Malek

When it comes to off-road vehicles, few automakers have nearly the same level of clout that Toyota has. While Jeep has Rubicon, Ford Raptor, and Chevrolet ZR2, Toyota is the only automaker to offer a full lineup of off-road vehicles under the TRD Pro moniker. While the Tacoma and 4-Runner TRD Pro variants are often seen as the de-facto ambassadors of the brand, there are other TRD Pro models behind the scenes that do their best to bring a distinctive driving experience to buyers. One of these is the vehicle featured here, the 2019 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro. With its …

HD Engine Startup! Meeting Three NASCAR Truck Series 2015 Toyota Tundra Drivers

Insights about the 2015 Toyota Tundra NASCAR trucks versus the cars? A special meet/greet with Johnny Sauter let us know that the trucks are far more controllable, and far more thrilling to race (in the driver’s seat) as a result. The NASCAR sedans, in contrast, were much more “exhilarating” due to a pronounced lack of control via grippy downforce. Exhilarating would definitely be a code-word for terrifying and loose and wild….! The 2015 NASCAR Tundra, by contrast, is more playful and playable out there on the Daytona International Speedway — per driver Johnny Sauter, who drove both trucks and cars …

The lightly race-prepped TRD Pro Tundra is back from Baja — with a win!
