Redesigned Toyota Tundra at Least Four Years Away
Also, Toyota is pondering heavy duty versions of the Tundra to challenge the 3/4 and 1-ton market that’s dominated by Detroit’s major trucks, the Ford F-Series, the Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra, and the Ram.
"We are working real hard trying to figure out what the CAFE (Corporate Average Fuel Economy) regulations for 2018 are going to be because that will have a huge determination on what powerplants (and) what alternative powerplants we might have to put in the truck to participate in half-, 3/4 and the 1-ton truck market," Paul Holdrige, Toyota US vice president of sales, told Edmunds.
Toyota introduced the third-generation Tundra for the 2014 model year, but powertrain, chassis and other components have remained largely unchanged.
