New Platform and Suspension

The highlight of the 2021 model is a hybrid powertrain. For that reason, the manufacturer had to switch Tundra’s underpinnings. The upcoming 2021 Toyota Tundra Diesel will also ride on a new TNGA platform. The same architecture underpins Tacoma pickup. This will result in dimensional changes, and new Tundra will be a lighter model as well.
