2022 Toyota Tundra Teaser Shows Off Full-Width Sliding Rear Window

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been treated to more than one 2022 Toyota Tundra teaser as the automaker works to generate hype around its all-new pickup. First, Toyota released the very first official picture of the 2022 Tundra TRD Pro and its “iForce Max” engine badge following a bit of a leak, and then, a partial photo of the pickup’s revised interior with what is clearly a large infotainment screen. Now, a new 2022 Toyota Tundra teaser has been released, this time showing off a pair of features present in the future Ford F-150 rival – a panoramic sunroof and a full-width sliding rear window.

While the 2021 Ford F-150 is available with a similar panoramic roof, the Tundra’s sliding rear window is significantly larger than the F-150’s. In fact, the entire rear glass panel retracts into the bottom of the cab, creating a large open-air space. The F-150’s sliding rear window, on the other hand, only opens a small portion of the rear glass in total.

The reveal of the 2022 Toyota Tundra is one of the longer, more drawn-out reveals in recent automotive history, and yet, we’re only halfway through a planned eight teasers before we finally get to see the brand new pickup in totality. Regardless, the all-new Tundra is an important vehicle for Toyota, as the current-gen model has been on sale, largely unchanged, since its last major refresh way back in 2014.

The full-size truck segment is one of the few that Toyota trails its rivals in, and thus, the automaker has clearly gone back to the drawing board to finally try and make the Tundra a competitive product. Whether it actually will be or not, well, we’ll apparently have to wait a bit longer to find out.

    Holy sh!t, is that ugly!

      Fugly for sure. Toyota needs to FIRE the entire design team associated with this truck. This keeps their sales volume low.

    The sliding rear window was on the FORD Sport Trac 1st, so it shouldn’t be that hard for FORD to add the same option on the F-150, The Tundra is way uglier than the F-150, could ever be

      If we are all here as Ford enthusiast, i think it’s important to know what other companies are trying to do to compete. Is it extremely relevant? Not really, but once again I personally find it important to know what Ford is up against. It is obvious this wont kill the F150 LOL, but it is nice to now what others trying to do to compete with Americas best selling thing.

    I wouldn’t compare a Tundra to the QUALITY of a F-150….I’d take the FORD any day of the week or year! FORD is so much better Quality and Styling compared to the Toyota Tundra…including the ride of the F150 (perfection)
    I’m sure there will be flaws and RECALLS on the Tundra as with every Toyota Model these days!
    Remember FORD “The Best Never Rest”

    I have missed the fully retractable rear window ever since my 96 Bronco died. I’d love to see this option come to pickups, especially the F250.
