You probably know that the Japanese manufacturer is working on the next generation of this full-size pickup truck. A lot of novelties are about to come. We are about to see a completely new design, with a new platform, engines and much more. Of course, we count on new aesthetics as well. At this point, you probably don’t pay too much attention to colors, which is logical. The production model is still far away, it doesn’t seem natural to think about color options and other customization features. However, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t make some predictions about the 2021 Toyota Tundra Colors.
At this point, we may presume that most of the current color options will remain in the offer. However, we count on some additions as well, considering that the current generation isn’t particularly generous when it comes to the number of finishes in the offer.
2021 Toyota Tundra Colors –Exterior
Of course, exterior colors come to mind first. The current generation comes with 11 colors in the offer and we would definitely like to see more in the future. The number by itself isn’t that small, but the problem is in the fact that most color options are reserved for certain trim levels. Just two of them are available on all trims – Super White and Midnight Black Metallic.
The freshest addition is a new Army Green finish. Just like in the new Tacoma, it is available in the TRD Pro version only. This off-road version also comes with Magnetic Gray Metallic and the aforementioned Super White and Midnight Black Metallic.
When it comes to the rest of the colors, Cavalry Blue, Cement and Quicksand are available on SR5 and Limited trims. Voodoo Blue is available in SR5, Limited, Platinum and 1974 Edition. Barcelona Red Metallic and Silver Sky Metallic are available on all trims except TRD Pro.
The next generation will keep most of these finishes, but we count on additions as well, so the list of 2021 Toyota Tundra colors, as well as their availability, should be notably longer.
2021 Toyota Tundra Colors – Interior
On the inside, the 2021 Toyota Tundra colors should come with even more novelties, as the current model is pretty limited in this aspect. Not only that the current cabin looks outdated, but also comes in just a couple of color options. Once again, it all depends on the trim level you choose. Moreover, certain color schemes are available only in a combination with specific exterior colors. When it comes to Vinyl and Fabric upholstery, you can choose between Sand Beige, Black and Graphite options. In higher trims, leather upholstery is standard. The available color schemes are also Sand Beige, Black and Graphite, with the addition of Brown leather.
What can we expect from the upcoming redesign?
Of course, new 2021 Toyota Tundra Colors will come, but the upcoming redesign will bring many more important changes as well. At this point, many details are still a mystery, but we also know many of them.
The first thing that comes to mind is the platform, which will be completely new. It is codenamed F1 and it is highly modular. Therefore, it will be used for the next-generation Tacoma as well. Naturally, some of the benefits are weight reduction, better comfort, driving characteristics etc.
One of the most interesting details about the new model is the suspension setup. The rear axle is still completely camouflaged, which indicates interesting novelties, although it seems clear that the solid axle will remain. On the other side, we count on air components and similar things.
Another huge novelty of this redesign is a new, hybrid powertrain. Although we are still waiting for the official confirmation, this setup seems like a certain thing. The new Tundra will use a hybrid setup that has a lot in common with the system that powers Lexus LS500h. This practically means a turbo-V6 engine combined with two or more electric motors. However, it looks like we are about to see significantly more power. Instead of 354 horsepower, we are about to see a max output that goes all-away up to 450 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque, if we can trust the latest rumors. There is no doubt that these numbers would provide significant improvements in terms of performances and towing capabilities, but we also count on a significantly better fuel economy.
Still, this doesn’t mean that the current 5.7-liter V8 will be dropped. Despite the poor fuel economy, it is an incredibly reliable engine. With a couple of modifications, we believe it will be able to return more miles per gallon, which would be more than enough reason to pick this otherwise excellent engine. Also, we count on a new 10-speed automatic transmission.
The next-generation Tundra is expected to hit the market in the second half of next year.
