Photos have emerged this week of the 2022 Toyota Tundra.

We don’t get these in Australia, but the Tundra has been in the US for many years. If you’re not familiar with them, think of it as Toyota’s version of the Chevy Silverado, Dodge Ram etc…

Whilst you’ve never been able to buy a Tundra from Toyota Australia, there are a few getting around as private imports. Other than that, we’re stuck with the smaller Hilux and much-loved 79 Series Land Cruiser.

The old Tundra was a handsome looking ute, but still quite conservative, as is the Toyota way. But this new one is a total departure, and follows some of the edgier cues of other recently released utes (or trucks!).

Toyota Tundra in Australia

The new Tundra will reportedly be available with a twin-turbo 3.5l V6 developing 305kW and 650Nm. More basic versions could share the same V6 diesel which will be used in the new 300 Series Land Cruiser.

Is the Toyota Tundra coming to Australia?

Will the Tundra finally make it to Australia now?

It hasn’t been an option in the past since the Tundra is only manufactured in left-hand-drive. There have been private imports converted to RHD, but they’re not exactly common, and certainly not cheap.

Whilst there is still no commitment to making the Tundra in right-hand-drive, an article from Car Expert gives some hope on the basis that the 2022 Tundra shares much of its architecture with the 300 Series Land Cruiser.

The Land Cruiser will be available in RHD for countries like Australia, so perhaps it won’t be such a stretch to build the Tundra in RHD as well?

The official line from Toyota Australia is that they’d like to, but they have no news to share just yet:

“Toyota Australia is aware that the large truck segment in Australia has grown in popularity over the last few years and it is a segment that we are continuing to study and that we are interested in generally,” a company spokesperson told us today.

“We have no announcements to make on the introduction of Tundra to Australia today and will continue to study its viability for the Australian market.”

Would you cough up a likely six-figure price tag for the big Toyota?

Would you buy a Tundra if they were sold through Toyota Australia?
