What does everyone think the likelihood is that Toyota will actually bring out a new electric Toyota soon? and if they do will it be too late for them to capitalize on the market?


Toyota will debut the new Tundra full-size pickup truck later this year, and we've already gotten a glimpse at the new truck's front end. Now Toyota is sharing a few details of what will power the new truck: the iForce MAX powertrain, and it could be a V-6 hybrid.

The current-generation Tundra uses the 5.7-liter iForce V-8 engine, which produces 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. It's paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. We expect that the new iForce MAX will be a hybrid drivetrain with either a twin-turbocharged or naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V-6 engine because of three intake runners on each side and blue "MAX" lettering. A nonhybrid version of this six-cylinder makes 409 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque in the new global Land Cruiser. Toyota also says that an electric pickup truck will arrive soon, but it's not clear if it'll be a Tundra.

Typical Toyota. Bring out something that is already old-news. A hybrid is the minimum they should be doing. They should have been doing a hybrid truck 10 years ago. Where's the full-electric truck?

Old news????? Did you not see the part about the blue "MAX" lettering?

Toyota completely disgusts me. They are the worst with their anti-EV propaganda and are willing to support seditionist lawmakers in an effort to block EV adoption.
