On Monday, the Japanese market closed to celebrate respect for aged day.
Meanwhile, the automotive manufacturer revealed its new Tundra pickup that will be available in the market this year.
Moreover, the distinguishing feature of the new pickup is its twin-turbo V-6 engine, which is different from the regular use of a single V-8 engine.
Accordingly, Toyota will offer two versions of the 3.5-litre twin-turbo V-6 that produce 45% more horsepower and torque than the 2021 Tundra.
Aside from the impressive engine, the Tundra offers a more rugged design than the previous model.
Subsequently, Toyota motors included sleeker headlights in the new pickup truck.
However, the Japanese automotive firm did not announce the fuel economy or price of the said model.
Recently, automakers offered alternative powertrain options ahead of the arrival of all-electric pickup trucks in the coming years.
