The 2024 Toyota Tundra will represent the third production year of the new generation, which arrived after nearly 15 years of waiting. Therefore, we are pretty sure that the Japanese manufacturer won’t’ bother too much with updates, even though some minor tweaks are always possible. Most things are about to remain the same, especially when it comes to the overall design, mechanics, or aesthetics.
You may count on a familiar layout, which has a lot of great things to offer. We particularly like Tundra’s capable powertrain options, along with the pretty smooth ride with the optional adaptive dampers. Furthermore, Tundra’s cabin looks very nice, while the front seats are supportive and comfortable. On the other hand, the main complaint goes to below-average payload capacity, while the max towing could also be a little bit better.
Since there are no significant changes to come, we believe that the 2024 Toyota Tundra will hit the market sometime in the second half of 2023.
2024 Toyota Tundra Design
As we already mentioned, the current generation is still pretty fresh and considering all the introduced novelties, it is pretty much for sure that there will be no significant updates. The overall layout will remain the same, based on the new TNGA-F platform. Thanks to the new rear suspension, which now uses coils instead of rudimental leaf springs, the ride quality is way better, even super-comfy if you opt for adaptive dampers.
Of course, the styling should also remain the same. We expect to see two familiar cab styles on offer, Double Cab and Crew Cab, along with three-bed sizes: a long bed (8 feet, 1 inch), a standard bed (6 feet, 6 inches) and a short bed (5 feet, 6 inches).
When it comes to off-road performance, the company will continue to offer optional off-road packages, as well as the TRD Pro trim level. The latter is the most off-road-capable version you can get, with suspension upgrades that include off-road dampers, skid plates, a locking rear differential, all-terrain tires and a variety of exclusive styling details.
The same thing is with interior design. The Tundra’s cabin looks very nice and it is wrapped with nice materials. Also, there is a pretty decent amount of tech features, including a massive infotainment screen, which feels quite intuitive.
We already mentioned that there are two cab styles on offer. Both offer well-shaped and comfortable front seats. The Double Cab is a little bit tight in the second row, while the Crew Cab is extremely generous with space, offering one of the largest cabins among full-size pickups.
While base design characteristics will undoubtedly remain unchanged, we could see some tweaks regarding standard features and equipment groups. Still, most things are about to remain the same, which means that base models will continue with a pretty decent list of standard equipment that includes an 8-inch touch screen, navigation, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, the ”Hey Toyota” virtual assistant, a Wi-Fi hot spot, satellite radio, a six-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, three USB ports, an analog gauge cluster, remote keyless entry, push-button start and single-zone automatic climate control.
Of course, higher trim levels will gradually offer more and more standard equipment. Some of the available upgrades will be goodies like a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 14-inch touch screen, wireless device charging, nine- and 12-speaker stereos, two 120-volt household-style power outlets, two additional USB ports, dual-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic moonroof, rear sunshades and ambient lighting.
2024 Toyota Tundra Engines
Things under the hood definitely won’t change. The 2024 Toyota Tundra will continue with three powertrain options, where the base variant uses a 3.4-liter turbo V6 with around 348 horsepower. The same engine is available in a more capable variant, with a max output of 389 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. Finally, there is a hybrid version, which uses the same engine but gets help from the electric motor, for a combined output of 437 horsepower.
All three units come in pairs with a 10-speed automatic transmission, which is smooth and responsive. All versions offer good driving dynamics and feel quite refined. The V6 returns around 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway, while the hybrid is good for about 20 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. When properly equipped, the Tundra can tow up to 12.000 pounds.
2024 Toyota Tundra Release Date and Price
Since there are no bigger changes to come, we presume that the 2024 Toyota Tundra will arrive sometime in the last quarter of 2023. The starting price should go around 38.000 dollars. While the new Tundra marks decent sales numbers, the market is mostly about way more popular U.S. rivals, such as the F-150, Ram 1500 and Chevy Silverado.
