Toyota’s pickup truck “Tundra” is gaining tremendous support in the United States. A new model is scheduled to appear soon, but both the interior and exterior were super cool. The official introduction to Japan is a model that is hard to think about, but here is information on the new Tundra that is currently known. Attention was focused on the interior with a large display inherited from the new Land Cruiser 300.
A huge body with a total length of over 6m! Taxes are too high to maintain the Tundra in Japan …

The Toyota Tundra is a huge pickup truck with a total length of 5.3m to 6.3m. As for how big it is, it is a little bigger than the total length of Toyota Alphard, which is about 4.9m.
There are three types of engines installed in the current model, from 4 liters to 5.7 liters. Speaking of Japan’s tax system, the automobile tax is 66,500 yen even for the smallest 4-liter model, and 88,000 yen for the 5.7-liter model, so the maintenance cost was not stupid.
However, the engine installed in the new Tundra is likely to be a heavy burden if the size is not considered even if it is brought to Japan by a method such as 3.5 liter turbo and parallel import. However, the annual automobile tax is 58,000 yen, which is a little cheaper than the current model.
The same TOYOTA logo as the new Land Cruiser 300 is used on the front grille!
The new Tundra is expected to undergo a full model change soon, but so far only the front design and part of the interior of the car are known. In fact, the current Tundra made its debut in 2007, and it is a model that appeared at the same time as the Land Cruiser, which will soon introduce a new model. It was actually the first full model change in 14 years.
The exterior of the new Tundra has a trendy design, such as a vertically extending LED daytime light. And the front face had the TOYOTA logo on it, just like the GR Sport, the highest-end model of the new Land Cruiser 300.
The interior of the new Land Cruiser 300 is soaked !? The new Tundra is also equipped with a large screen display
And the attention is on the inside of the car, and it is expected to be equipped with a super-large display. This is also seen as the same thing as the new Land Cruiser 300, and is expected to be a type with enhanced smartphone cooperation functions.
And the TRD emblem was installed on the bonnet side and even the wheels, which was a coveted finish for Toyota fans.
Perhaps the new Tundra, like the current model, will not be officially introduced in Japan. However, if it looks so cool, I would like to see a lineup of smaller models for Japan. Therefore, pay attention to future trends.
