Toyota shows us some hardware underneath the all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro. Here is everything we can learn from these images. Toyota publishes three distinct views of the new truck’s suspension and chassis. We can see the massive TRD front skid plate, the massive front sway bar, the FOX shocks, the Falken tires, and the rear coil springs. Let’s dig deeper.
The TRD Pro is Toyota’s most off-road-worthy model. As such, it must have the chassis, suspension, shocks, and tires to perform off-road and on the road as well. Just as now, Toyota is very proud of their underbody protection with a big aluminum TRD skid plate upfront. Ground clearance is also very important, so the skid plate and most other components appear to be tucked up as far as possible. There is a massive red sway bar for the front independent suspension. This should keep the truck nice and level at higher speeds, especially on the highway.
Next up, we also get a view of the front FOX internal bypass shocks and the Falken tires. Toyota and FOX have been working together on truck shocks for many years. It’s not a surprise that the new Tundra TRD Pro continues to use FOX shocks.
Is that a composite bed that is peaking through above the rear axle? That is difficult to say at this time, but the rear coil springs are cannot be mistaken for anything else. The new Tundra appears to share many components with the new Land Cruiser 300-series that was shown for other world markets. It’s a multi-link rear solid axle with coil springs, two bump stops on the passenger side, and FOX shocks with piggy-back external reservoirs.
The fuel tank is on the passenger side and it is covered with a beefy skid plate. The exhaust is routed over the axle to the driver’s side. It appears that this version of the Tundra TRD Pro will not have a dual exhaust system with outlets on both sides of the truck.
