The new Tundra is coming next year and along with a range of familiar trim levels and versions, we are also about to see the 2021 Toyota Tundra Baja. After several years of break, this version will come once again. Of course, it will also feature a bunch of exclusive details, like it was the case in the past. Naturally, the focus will be on off-road performances, but this truck will have much more to show. A full range of novelties is expected to come.
- Baja-inspired aesthetics
- Capable and efficient powertrain
- Proficient off-roader
- Comfortable cabin
- Tough competition
- Slightly more expensive than rivals
In terms of the exterior design, the 2021 Toyota Tundra Baja will come with all the novelties that are coming with standard models. That means improvements in all aspects. First of all, count on significant weight reduction and new suspension design, which will feature some air components. In terms of the styling, the new Tundra is about to come with lots of novelties. The test model still wears a camouflage.
When it comes to exclusive details, there will be a lot of them. As a performance version, this model will come tuned chassis and suspension. We expect to see all those off-road goodies that can be found in the TRD Pro, with a couple of further enhancements, including higher ground clearance, off-road tires and more. Finally, lots of unique styling details will come as well, inspired by the famous Baja races.
When it comes to interior design, it is still early to talk about details. Toyota still keeps cabin details as secret, even in standard models. Still, we may presume that the 2021 Toyota Tundra Baja will feature a lot of exclusive details. Some of the things that come to mind are unique color schemes, sports seats, unique trims, tweaks to the instrument cluster etc. Of course, the list of standard equipment should feature a couple of exclusive features as well.
Other than that, the overall cabin design will be the same as in the rest of the lineup. That would mean a completely new interior design, with finer material, new tech goodies and more. Although the Tundra is about tp bring single-row cab layouts, this particular version will probably come in a Crewmax and Double Cab versions only.
When it comes to powertrain, we expect big novelties from the 2021 Toyota Tundra Baja. Like the rest of the lineup, it should come with a completely new, hybrid powertrain, which will provide enough power to compete with models like Ford Raptors, Ram Power Wagon etc.
We presume that the powertrain from Lexus LS Hybrid will serve as the basis, although we count on significantly more power in this case. The luxurious sedan is good for 354 horsepower. The 2021 Toyota Tundra Baja will feature the same 3.5-liter V6 engine but more powerful electric motors, so a max output will probably go somewhere between 450 and 500 horsepower.
2021 Toyota Tundra Baja Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2021 Toyota Tundra Baja sometime late in the next year. The base price will probably go around $55,000.
