The truck is new and it is already achieving better sales than its predecessor. There are no reasons for big updates on the 2025 Toyota Tundra. Engines and trim levels remain the same. However, the company might bring one of the models we can catch up from rumors.
Tundra diesel is an old wish, but it seems nothing is going to happen. The 2025 Toyota Tundra HD is the newest thing we can hear. It makes sense. The Japanese company is involved in all segments. This is the one reserved for the US truckmakers. Finally, the Tundra EV is coming out one day. It is impossible to claim or deny that complete electric pickup is going to be ready for the 2025 season.
The I Force and I Force Max engines are still there. The truck will carry over all the trim levels. The SR and SR5 are entry-level models. If you plan to spend $50k-$60k, Limited and Platinum are the options. Above that, a high-end class offers TRD Pro and Capstone. Toyota might add a lighter off-road version with a TRD badge.
I Force and I Force Max Specs
Two new engines replaced an old V8. Fans were suspicious about the lack of cylinders, but the new system is quite good. A 3.4-liter turbo drivetrain is producing 389 horsepower. That is more than the old plant was able to do. The twin-turbo unit also increases the level of torque to 479 lb-ft. The maximum towing capacity is now 12,000 pounds. A 10-speed automatic transmission sends power to the wheels. AWD is optional.
Another option is a hybrid system based on the same 3.4-liter mill. Thanks to electric batteries, the total output is 437 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque. The system also consumes less fuel, but it can’t tow as much as the I-Force model. The I Force Max is good for up to 11,500 lbs.
2025 Toyota Tundra Diesel
This is still a hot rumor, although the company is denying the development of the diesel engine for its truck. Not only Tundra but also Tacoma are not going to offer an oil burner. The Japanese truckmaker is keener on a zero-emission technology, while diesels are becoming history in the US. Sooner or later, such engines will disappear from other markets as well.
2025 Toyota Tundra Electric
While fans are talking about a diesel version, the company is working on an electric truck. Late in 2021, Toyota announced a big electrification plan. According to the schedule, in the next 5 years, more than 30 EVs are going to enter production. We saw only faceless bodies and one truck was among them. Experts think it is rather a Tacoma EV. Either way, the 2025 Toyota Tundra electric could become a valid concept that is going into production after a year or two. The Japanese truckmaker must make this move with Ford F-150 Lightning, Ram 1500 Revolution and Chevy 1500 Silverado EV already introduced to public.
2025 Toyota Tundra HD
Rumors about the diesel truck are fading, but a new speculation popped up – the 2025 Toyota Tundra HD. This segment is reserved for US truckmakers only. Ram, Ford, and a couple of GM models are available with increased capabilities. Properly equipped, those trucks can tow more than 35,000 pounds.
At this point, it seems that the electric Tundra is closest to the debut, but the schedule is not set yet. The HD truck might happen, but the odds are not the best. You can stop talking about a diesel engine. Toyota already rubbished stories about an oil burner and decided to go after cleaner sources of power.
More TRD Models, Trailhunter Availability
For now, seven models are available. The company is going to carry over all of them for the 2025 season. But, there could be a few changes. The Trailhunter package takes the position above the famous TRD Pro model. It is becoming one of the best overlanding trucks in the US. Still, the TRD is more popular. For the 2025 Toyota Tundra, not only the Pro edition is going to be available. The company is working on lighter versions, such as TRD Off-Road and TRD Sport.
The SR is an entry-level model with basic equipment. Nothing is impressive on this one. It even uses steel wheels. The SR5 brings quite a few upgrades for $6,000. We recommend picking this one over the base version. With more than $50,000, you can take Limited package with 20-inch wheels, a 12-inch instrument panel, leather upholstery with heated/cooled seats, and an improved safety system. Premium offer includes Platinum and Capstone trims. The 1794 Edition is basically the Platinum version with unique interior and exterior details.
The pricing starts at just under $40,000 for the base edition, and the SR5 is the only other one that you can get for less than $50,000. The Capstone is the most expensive build with premium options. You need to pay more than $80k for this one and the ultimate overlander Trailhunter.
