By: Quesnel Toyota   |   31 Dec 2022

The new Toyota Tundra has arrived with many new features and innovations. Some of these features include a new design, new tech, and new terminologies. That said, the vehicle is sure to be a hit in the pickup truck market.

If you want to know the terminologies referring to this new vehicle, look no further than our examples below.

1. TSS 2.5

The Toyota Tundra comes with a variety of safety features, including the Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 system. This includes enhancements to functions available on earlier versions of TSS, such as the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection. This system can identify cyclists and help drivers stabilize the vehicle during evasive emergency maneuvers.

The Tundra's DRCC system uses radar to monitor the distance between you and the car in front of you, automatically adjusting your speed to maintain a safe distance. It also features Lane Departure Alert, which uses cameras to detect lane markings and alert you if you begin to drift out of your lane, and Lane Tracing Assist, which uses cameras and sensors to help keep the Tundra centred in its lane. 

Blind Spot Monitoring uses sensors to detect other vehicles in your blind spot, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert uses sensors to detect approaching vehicles when backing up. Automatic high beams turn on and off as needed.

2. i-FORCE Engine

The Toyota Tundra is a powerful pickup truck that runs on a twin-turbo V6 engine. This engine is part of Toyota's i-FORCE engine range, which is known for being powerful and efficient. The last-generation Tundra ran on a 5.7-litre i-FORCE V8 engine, but the 2023 Tundra has been upgraded to a more powerful twin-turbo V6 engine.

The V35A-FTS engine is a 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine that was first introduced on the latest Lexus LS model. It is part of the V35A engine family, designed for increased power and performance.

It is also the only engine available for the Tundra. It makes 389 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque for the higher-end models and 348 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque for the SR models.

3. Multi-Link Suspension

The new Tundra has coil springs instead of leaf springs. This makes towing capacity better and your rides comfortable and stable.

The rear axle is suspended with a multi-link setup, which optimizes the mounting points and locates them outside of the frame rails. This improves towing performance and damping. The rear lateral control arm provides increased structural rigidity.

4. TRD Pro

The Toyota Racing Development (TRD) Pro is a Toyota truck that has been upgraded to be able to handle driving in off-road conditions. It has a higher ride height and better shock absorbers to make it more comfortable and controlled when driving on rough terrain. Currently, the TRD models include the 2022 Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro, 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD, and 2022 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro.

Some of the unique features you'll find on the TRD Pro models include a thicker stabilizer bar for improved handling, aluminum skid plates to protect key components, all-terrain tires, red-painted suspension parts, unique exterior styling, and an available Multi-Terrain Monitor. This monitor provides different camera angles that can be helpful when driving off-road so that you can avoid obstacles.

5. Double Wishbone Suspension

Double wishbone suspension is a type of suspension that uses two wishbone-shaped arms to connect the wheel hub to the rest of the vehicle. This design is often used in high-performance vehicles because it provides a precise handling feel and a controlled ride.

With this, you can expect a pickup truck that is very comfortable, able to move quickly and easily, and precise when driving.


Overall, the Toyota Tundra is sure to be a popular choice for drivers and passengers alike. With its impressive performance, comfortable interior, and sleek design, the Tundra is sure to be a hit. The only question is, are you up-to-date with the terminologies?
