Check out these latest images of a 2022 Toyota Tundra prototype with a trailer. These images were captured by Jonathan Hynes near Morgantown, WV. Thank you Jonathan for sending these in!
The images reveal some new information about the highly anticipated next-generation of the Tundra. Toyota still has not officially released any information about this truck, but this crew cab 4×4 truck appears to be loaded heavy. The highways near Morgantown, West Virginia are very mountainous and steep. My friend – Dan Atkinson, who is a semi-truck driver – tells me that some highway grades near that area have grades up to 7%.
These close-up images show that the truck may be equipped with a 360-degree camera system, large vertical towing mirrors (with a design that is similar to GM’s towing mirrors), a possible heads up display, and a possible large sliding rear window. This prototype’s rear suspension is still heavily covered, but we still expect this new truck to have coil sprung / solid axle rear suspension that is similar to the Land Cruiser.
How much is this Tundra prototype towing? We don’t know for more sure, but I estimate this trailer to be an 8×20 foot in size. It may have enough capacity to weigh up to 10,000 lbs with ballast. This truck is equipped with a heavy-duty hitch with a weight-distribution attachment. The large-diameter wheels are mounted on 6-lug hubs. I expect Toyota to raise the maximum towing and payload capability of this truck to be increased for the new generation. The max towing numbers may be between 11,000-13,000 lbs. The maximum payload should be up to where the competitors are as well.
