First Look at the 2022 Toyota Tundra
Cavan, ON – Our visit to a remote barn in Peterborough County in Ontario had a specific purpose: Toyota's Canadian division had parked there two "pre-production" examples of the all-new 2022 Tundra for us to check out up close. The full-size pickup, in case you didn't know, was in dire need of a makeover after 14 years of loyal service without major changes.

Let’s be clear: the new edition of the truck represents no threat to the hegemony of the U.S. Big Three. But the 2022 Tundra could catch the attention of consumers who aren't really attached to those Ford, Chevy and Ram trucks, and even of some buyers who want to buy a pickup that’s of high quality and is more reliable and durable.
