2017 Toyota Tundra Engine, Price
Tundra is one of the most-talked about models from Toyota’s pickup truck line up. Its second generation is coming to an end, and the model is closing up to its big redesign. If 2016 model year, which is just around the corner, doesn’t bring much-awaited new design and engines, than 2017 Toyota Tundra most definitely will. For the moment, it seems like 2016 Tundra is more likely to be launched fresh and redesigned. Whatever is the case, here are the closest specs of the 2017 Toyota Tundra:
2017 Toyota Tundra DESIGN
In case that 2016 model year brings the start of the new generation 2017 Toyota Tundra will be carried over. It will have same styling cues as 2016 model, without changes in exterior and interior design. In case that Toyota delays the redesign, than the 2017 Tundra will come fully redesigned. Whatever is the case, new model will be significantly different than the current one. Exterior will be reshaped, and the Tundra will be presented with more aerodynamic look, sleeker lines, and modernized front and rear end. Changes will happen in its construction as well, with materials which will influence weight, fuel economy, and handling of the model.
On the inside, interior will be upholstered in better quality materials. Besides that, new Tundra will be equipped with latest technology features. Interior of the pickups lately leans toward car-like appearance, since the customers seek for the same comfort that regular cars offer, but better functionality for heavy loads.
2017 Toyota Tundra ENGINES
Under the hood of the 2017 Toyota Tundra will be available three engines. Two of them are gasoline, and one is diesel. First and base one is 4.6-liter V8 with 310 horsepower and 327 pound feet of torque. It is paired with either rear or all-wheel drive, and with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Diesel engine and the newest addition to the Tundra’s line-up is 5.0-liter Cummins turbo diesel with output rates of more than 300 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque.
