2017 Toyota Tundra exterior and interior updates
The exterior of the 2017 Toyota Tundra should get a light refresh. The appearance of the model is going to be updated but not in a very high way. They are keeping things simple and are only planning to make changes which concern the aesthetic look of the car. This will keep the car competitive in the market and make it easier to face ten competition which is coming with updates of their own. What we might get are simple reshaping of ten bumper and the grill parts on the front end of the car. The vehicle is going to look much more handsome with the new look but will initially retain its masculine posture and appearance.
The headlights and taillights also get an update as they fit in a new kind of a design. The added fog lights help enhance the visibility when treading on some difficult and of the beaten track roads, which you will certainly do with the new Tundra. All in all, the off-road features are still there and the car is pretty reliable for any sort of an endeavor regarding going to some roads less traveled on. The car is as strong and as reliable as it ever was and offers us a pretty nice setup.
As far as the interior of the 2017 Toyota Tundra is concerned, it is going to retain its familiar shape from before and add certain features that are going to update the usefulness of the car. If you have seen the previous model you will certainly notice the differences that have been made with this new one. The familiar look will be kept for now and changes can be expected in the future when they decide to output a new generation model, but for now it is keeping things simple what is the important part of the redesign. The cabin was useful in a way and it brought everything that you needed from a truck like this one.
The updates that were made are going to keep things a bit more comfortable and entertaining inside the car. You get new materials placed on the touch surfaces that make the inside appropriate and the seats also get updated with leather and fine soft materials as well.

As for the diesel variant there has been no official confirmation about it. We are still hoping that the newest Tundra comes equipped with a new diesel option and there have already been several assumptions on what engine is going to be used here. The most obvious choice so far comes to the 5.0-liter V8 turbocharger engine. This powertrain should make an output of 300 horsepower and torque of 677 Nm available for the engine and may have a fuel consumption rate of 30 mpg. Of course we shall have to wait and see which engine is going to be utilized and whether they decided to use it this year.
