2016 Toyota Tundra Diesel, Price, Specs
One of the biggest rivals to the popular Ford F-series truck in the United States is the Toyota Tundra, which is selling almost as good as the popular trucks manufactured by American companies. Now, as the Japanese manufacturer prepares to unveil yet another version of their popular pickup, we are going to go through all the changes that are going to be made to the updated model. According to the Japanese manufacturer, the most important 2016 Toyota Tundra change will be made to the Cummins diesel engine (the same engine is going to be used in the all-new Nissan Titan).
Exterior of new 2016 Toyota Tundra
Probably the biggest problem (if we can call it that way) of the current Tundra is its outdated design of the exterior. The model that first had this design was introduced back in 2006 and it received a small update in the 2014. The next-generation Toyota Tundra is going to be even smaller update than that in the 2014, but it is going to have a completely new trim level, which will make the next Tundra a real rally raid truck, at least according to the manufacturer. Most notable changes on the outside are quite small and can be seen only when you compare the 2016 Toyota Tundrawith its predecessor: the arrangement of the components of the headlights is different and there is a completely new chrome grille. The back of the car has received new taillights and a redesigned rear bumper. Furthermore, the Japanese manufacturer plans to offer a few different alloy wheel designs.
Toyota Tundra 2016 Interior
One of the things that the current Tundra has that is so good that it should not be changed is the interior. Luckily, the Japanese manufacturer plans to change just a few small details and to expand the list of available features and equipment that are going to be offered with the new 2016 Tundra. For most of the potential customers this is a good news, because the interior of the Toyota Tundra 2016 is designed very good – it is both luxurious and elegant, but you can still use it for work if you need it. In the center of the dashboard is still the large touch screen display with updated infotainment software and satellite navigation. The new 2016 Toyota Tundra will be offered with that popular interior with orange leather seats (and orange leather accents throughout the cabin, there is even some on the dashboard), black soft plastic and wood accents.
2016 Toyota Tundra diesel, horsepower, Engine
The base Toyota Tundra 2016 will come with the same engine as its predecessor – the 4.6l aspirated V6 that produces around 310 horsepower and 327 lb-ft of torque. However, for those who need more power, there will be 5.7l aspirated V8 that produces 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. Both engines will be paired with 6-speed automatic transmission and there will be available both rear wheel and all wheel drive versions.
Release date and Price of 2016 Toyota Tundra
The 2016 Tundra should go on sale by the end of the 2015. The price of the base 2016 Toyota Tundra Diesel price should be around $40,000.
