The full-size pickup truck is about to come completely redesigned in the near future. However, it won’t happen before the last quarter of next year, so it seems pretty obvious that the next-year model will carry on in the same way. We don’t expect to see any particular change, so the 2021 Toyota Tundra specs should remain untouched. This includes not just powertrain department, but also things like exterior and interior dimensions, suspension setup, list of standard equipment etc. Therefore, here is a quick look at what to expect from the last production year of the second-generation Tundra.
2021 Toyota Tundra Specs – Exterior
When it comes to the exterior, the 2021 Toyota Tundra specs will, naturally, remain untouched. Therefore, you may count on the same configurations in the offer. This means you may count on two wheelbase variants and three body styles. The base model comes with a Double Cab layout, with a 6.5’ bed length. This model measures 145.7 inches, while the overall length goes slightly under 229 inches. If you want more space, there is a CrewMax version, which features the same wheelbase and overall length. Therefore, it’s not hard to conclude that the bed size is notably smaller. In numbers, you may count on a 5.5’ bed in this case.
This truck is available in another version, with a stretched wheelbase. In this case, the wheelbase goes all-away up to 164.6 inches, while the overall length goes around 248 inches. This version comes in a Double Cab layout only, and the biggest benefit is its 8.1’ cargo bed.
2021 Toyota Tundra Specs – Interior
It’s is a well-known fact that this is one of the most comfortable trucks on the market, no matter which cab style you choose. As we already mentioned, there are two cab designs in the offer. The smaller Double Cab model is already pretty generous in space. You may count on impressive 42.5 inches of legroom in the first row. The second row is also quite okay, as it measures around 35 inches in legroom.
If your crew has a few more members, or you are a family-oriented trucker, the CrewMax model is the ideal pick for you. When it comes to the interior space, 2021 Toyota Tundra specs will impressive in this case. Once again, the first row measures around 42.5 inches, while the second row features just slightly lower ratings, as you may count on about 42.3 inches in legroom.
2021 Toyota Tundra Specs – Engines
Things about the powertrain are also pretty clear here. This truck is now available in just one engine option, as the smaller 4.6-liter V8 engine has been discontinued recently. When it comes to 2021 Toyota Tundra specs, all models will come with the same 5.7-liter V8 engine, which is good for about 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. The engine comes in pair with a well-known 6-speed automatic gearbox.
When it comes to fuel economy, this isn’t the most impressive engine on the market, as it returns only 13 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway. These are the lowest ratings in the class, but you get a lot of benefits in return, starting from unparalleled reliability and durability among pickup trucks.
When it comes max towing capacity, 2021 Toyota Tundra specs can vary. Ideally, this truck tows up to 10.200 pounds. However, keep in mind that there are several factors that can reduce this number for a couple of hundreds of pounds. This includes things like 4WD layout and CrewMax cab design, while higher trim levels are generally heavier, which also reduces max ratings. Also, models like TRD Pro feature different suspension setup, so max towing rating goes around 9.600 pounds in this case.
Release Date and Price
We expect to see this model sometime in the last quarter of the year. When it comes to the price, base models go around 35.000 dollars, while the most expensive versions can go up to 53.500 dollars.
