For the 4th generation Tundra, Toyota is expected to go with a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 engine rather than a naturally aspirated V-8 as the highest output setup. This V-6 makes 416 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque in the Lexus LS500 luxury sedan, but will surely be tuned differently for a truck application. A hybrid version of this powertrain may also be offered to compete with the new 2021 F-150 hybrid.
Not happy about the V8 getting chopped, hopefully the TTV6 wont feel like a downgrade.
Thoughts?

Following up on my post from yesterday, a Tundra Hybrid capable of 30+ MPG and 450 horses is said to be in the works! Some other new Tundra specs I discovered:
  • TNGA-F platform
  • greater use of high-strength steel
  • suspension will adopt coil springs (instead of leaf springs)
  • live rear axle
  • hauling to exceed the current 1,730 lbs payload and 10,200 lbs towing
  • 3.4-liter twin turbo (420+ hp) and 3.5-liter (300+ hp) V6 engine options
  • a hybrid powertrain option
