2010 Toyota Tundra Hybrid will Have 400 Horsepower and Get 20/25 MPG


According to TundraHeadquarters Toyota is going to release a hybrid version of the Tundra in 2009 as a 2010 model. The truck will feature the 4.7L V8 and a hybrid system that combined will put out 400 horsepower, gobs of torque and manage to achieve 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.

There have been many rumors and internal statements from Toyota about the future of their hybrids. The automaker has already stated that they hope to reduce the cost of hybrids by the end of the decade, which would make them about the same price as their gas powered counterparts. This would mean that Toyota could put a hybrid in every one of their vehicles.

TundraHeadquarters expects the first Tundra Hybrid to be the CrewMax version. Ford, GM and Dodge are also expected to have hybrid versions of their large trucks on the market by the end of the decade. Gas prices are expected to be in the $3.50-$4.50 range by that time, so there should be demand for these trucks.
