  • These leaked dealer photos of the 2022 Toyota Tundra show the off-road-focused TRD Pro model.

  • The new truck will be powered by a twin-turbo V-6 engine, and there could also be a hybrid option.

  • It'll make its debut in the coming months and should go on sale in the U.S. by the end of the year.

Toyota will debut its new full-size Tundra pickup truck later this year, and we've already seen official photos of its front end and new twin-turbo V-6 engine cover. Now leaked dealer photos posted on the Toyota Tundra Forum show the off-road-ready TRD Pro model, and it's a much improved look from the previous generation, which has been around for more than a decade.

The Japanese automaker gave us a glimpse of the new truck's grille last month, and this TRD Pro model has a large "Toyota" badge above an LED light strip that's integrated into the blacked-out grille. The truck is sitting on a set of black TRD Pro-specific wheels wrapped in all-terrain rubber, and there's a black pattern surrounding the wheel arches. A large debossed "TRD Pro" logo is stamped into the tailgate, and three amber marker lights are on the rear, too, suggesting that this truck could be more than 80 inches wide.

We expect the new Tundra to be powered by a twin-turbocharged V-6 engine as seen from photos Toyota released this week of the truck's engine cover. The iForce MAX, however, could be a hybrid drivetrain because of blue "MAX" lettering on its logo. The current-generation Tundra uses the 5.7-liter iForce V-8 engine, which produces 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. The new Tundra should also have a new rear suspension setup, ditching the old truck's leaf springs in favor of coil springs, air springs, or possibly an independent rear suspension.

Look for the full details on the new Toyota Tundra in the coming months. The new truck could go on sale in the U.S. by the end of the year. Pricing is expected to start around $36,00o for a base model truck, and this TRD Pro model should start just over $50,000.
