Another day, another official 2022 Tundra tease from Toyota. This time, the automaker gives us a brief view of the TRD Pro model’s interior, including seats and technology features.
This is Toyota’s biggest tease for the new Tundra yet, but the automaker has become an absolute pro at revealing images while giving out little else. We get a glimpse of bright red TRD Pro upholstery and a wireless smartphone charger, but the real story here are the truck’s off-road feature buttons.
What we can see here is that the truck will get a multi-terrain select (MTS) system like one seen in the current Tacoma TRD Off-Road. MTS offers five drive modes to choose from that use the truck’s traction control system to regulate wheelspin. Toyota says that MTS helps improve traction in many off-road scenarios.
The next thing that sticks out is the DAC/Crawl button. DAC, or descent assist control, helps regulate the truck’s speed while descending a steep hill or incline. This is especially useful when the surface is bumpy or tough to navigate, as it frees the driver to focus on steering and navigating the terrain, instead of needing to worry about the truck’s speed. Similarly, crawl control works like an off-road cruise control, maintaining the truck’s speed while the driver focuses on steering.
Toyota hasn’t outlined pricing or release date details, but says that it will uncover more about the truck as we approach its debut in fall 2021.
