2017 Toyota Tundra interior, diesel, release date
It has been a while since Toyota has recognized a newer version for Tundra in their 2017 lineup of cars. It is to be expected that the Japanese automakers will shift their focus entirely upon Toyota Tundra, after they are finished with delivering a redesigned 2017 Toyota Tacoma. Recently the officials released a statement which stated that the engineers are working on a full-sized model of 2017 Toyota Tundra.
2017 Toyota Tundra: Engine Specs
As far as the engines of this new car are concerned, Tundra has the reputation of coming out with strong petrol variants which use way too much fuel as well as consumes more energy than a normal pickup truck. So for this 2017 variant of Tundra, engineers are willing to consider smaller variants. Let’s have a look at those options:
- A new 4.8 LITER V8 cylinder engine is available which generates around 310 HP of max power, along with 327 lbs. feet of torque.
- Another 5.7 LITER variant engine is also available which offers 381 HP of max power, along with 401 lbs. feet of torque.
Both of these engine configurations is accompanied by a 6 speed automatic gear box, with both all-wheel and rear wheel drive train configurations. There is a strong indication among automakers that Tundra might shift to a Cummins engine for its 2017 diesel variant. There is chance that it will turn out to be a Turbo 6 configuration with V8 cylinders and 5.0 LITER capacity. Power options include 300 HP max power with 500 lbs. feet of max torque.
2017 Toyota Tundra: Redesign Exterior and Interior
2017 Toyota Tundra will clearly inculcate a new look for its outer design and interior features. However, this change in interface will not affect Tundra’s domineering exterior persona – with a large grille layout, expansive fenders, intimidating bumper design and new head lights. It seems that these peripherals will also receive modifications for a better look.
Interior interface of this new 2017 Toyota Tundra model will receive some major changes over its previous models. It will have a new dashboard layout, with high-quality leather seats and exciting color options. In addition to that, all Tundra models will come with a 6.1 inch touch screen display along with HD radio and wireless connectivity options.
2017 Toyota Tundra: Fuel Economy
Safety options are quite good in this new 2017 Toyota Tundra. There are a lot of customizable options – with blind spot monitoring centers, cross traffic alerts as well as other optional safety upgrades. The main concern that previous models of Tundra had been its disappointing fuel consumption figures – 15/19 MPG for city/highway drive. So, this 2017 Toyota Tundra will certainly have better figures along with a Cummins engine.
2017 Toyota Tundra: Release Date and Price
2017 Toyota Tundra has not actively discussed their pricing bracket as of yet. However, sources indicate that 2017 Tundra models will have a similar price range as compared to its predecessor. So its prices may vary from $ 28 000 to $ 48 000. Even though there is no actual date for its official release, it is almost certain that Toyota will release it by end of 2016 or early 2017.
