The Toyota Tundra hadn’t had a major update since 2007, receiving minor facelifts and trim changes. Not event the 2014 model year surprises with mechanical changes, besides the upgraded suspension.

And according to Edmunds, the Tundra won’t receive any major update until at least 2018, when the CAFE (Corporate Average Fuel Economy) rules are to change and affect the Tundra’s power plants.

"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 power plants (and) what alternative power plants we might have to put in the truck to participate in half-, 3/4 and the 1-ton truck market," Paul Holdrige, Toyota Division vice president of sales, told Edmunds in an interview.

However, Holdrige said that the current Tundra model will gain consecutive upgrades until the 2018 fourth generation, maybe a gross vehicle weight increase too.
