2016 Toyota Tundra redesign and specs
It is clear that new 2016 Tundra will come with refreshed look, but it is still unknown how new model will look like because test mule still wears a heavy camouflage. We expect to see some changes in front, but overall look probably won’t be drastically different from current model, especially when it is about interior, which was completely redesigned in 2013. On the other side, it is known that 2016 Toyota Tundra will get new platform which will provide significant weight reduction. Just like outgoing model, it will be available in three body styles – 2-door Regular cab, 4-door Double cab and 4-door Crewmax. The 2016 Toyota Tundra will be available with RWD and AWD systems.

We all used to drive petrol trucks, but times are changing. Needs for diesel models are growing constantly, because fuel economy plays very important role nowadays. Because of that, Toyota decided to introduce 2016 Tundra with diesel engine too. It will be a 5.0 liter V8 engine which will be characterized both with large amounts of power and good fuel economy. It is expected that this engine will have an output of around 300 horses and 500 lb-ft of max torque, so great performances are guaranteed.
