So guys, the possible 2021 Toyota Tundra was sported revving about with some really foreign sound never heard before coming from a Toyota Tundra.
Am sure you’ve probably heard that low humming sound electric cars emit when they driving off, well that’s what they spy photographer reported when he spotted a covered up Toyota Tundra driving off at the green of a traffic light. He reported heard this sound as they Tundra travelled for about 30 miles before the usual automobile engine sound came back up.
This clearly suggests that Toyota may be bringing the hybrid powertrain to its upcoming versions of the Tundra.

Well, Toyota is obviously trying hard to keep the details of the new Tundra under the canopy, at least away from the direct glares of our burning eyes. The camouflaging of the test Tundra solidly supports our theory as Toyota plays the Hide and Seek game. If you are familiar with test camouflage, you would remember that unique body painting and some tapping is generally used in concealing some features, however, Toyota is obvious trying so hard to hide a whole lot from us.

From rumors we’ve heard, the 2021 Toyota Tundra will share an all-new platform with the Tacoma which Toyota has code named the F1. The F1 platform we expect will be built with the automakers TNGA architecture. Releasing an official statement on the F1 Platform for its famous Trucks after several requests for comments, Toyota said:
"Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) has been successfully implemented on many of our new cars and SUVs. While we're always exploring ways to improve upon our efficiency we have nothing to announce in regards to trucks at this time."
We don’t know the hybrid powertrain configuration Toyota plans to use on the Hybrid version of the Tundra, but we believe that it will borrow the hybrid system of one of its current offerings and most likely it will be V6 turbo engine combined with the electric powertrain. We looking at seeing the Hybrid version of the Tundra as early as 2021, if the implementation of the new F1 platform goes on as planned.
