    It’s hard to believe that the Toyota Tundra hasn’t undergone a full redesign since 2008, but on the eve of its third generation reveal, the all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra reminds us that patience pays off. For those looking to acquire a highly reliable full-size pickup with legendary Toyota reliability and durability, this newest third-gen Tundra is the one for you.

    For 2022, Toyota equips the Tundra pickup with an available hybrid powertrain, yet another example of the company’s quest to lessen its global carbon footprint. But don’t let the environmentally-friendly powertrain fool you: it’s still mighty powerful, debunking the antiquated notion that a big gas-guzzling V8 is necessary for true truck capability. This Tundra can just as ably tow trailers, haul payload, and traverse backcountry trails.

    Two body styles and a handful of bed lengths are available, letting buyers custom create their Tundra. Add to that a lineup of six trims, one of which bears the iconic TRD Pro nameplate, and buyers can look forward to plenty of choices. Tech seekers will delight in the available, class-leading 14-inch infotainment touchscreen. An equally impressive suite of driver-assist systems is also standard on the newest Tundra. This is one truck you are not going to want to miss out on.

  • Performance

    Toyota knows that to effectively compete with American full-size pickups, the Tundra had to perform as well or better in key capability categories, like towing, hauling, and off-roading. The newest Tundra achieves this and does so without compromising on-the-road ride quality. It’s an important difference and one that everyday drivers will appreciate since potholes are less jarring, steering is precise, and body roll is minimized. This enhanced ride handling is evident during both on and off-road driving.

    The Power You Will Get in 2022

    For 2022, the redesigned Tundra receives two powertrain options: the first is a standard 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 bearing the I-FORCE name. It produces 389 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. If more power is what you’re seeking, the available I-FORCE MAX hybrid powertrain gets you 437 horsepower and 583 lb-ft of torque without sacrificing fuel economy. Depending on which engine you select, your Tundra can deliver up to 12,000 pounds of towing capacity and 1,940 pounds of payload capacity. Both motors pair with a 10-speed transmission for smooth shifting and plenty of low-end torque when it's needed.

    Built for the Best Ride

    Most full-size pickups feature leaf springs in their suspension architecture, but the new Tundra is fitted with coil springs along with a multi-link rear suspension. The ladder frame construction and aluminum bed combine with the upgraded suspension to deliver a comfortable ride and more stability overall. An Adaptive Variable Suspension is available, automating the damping process to improve stability and handling.

    An available manually controlled air suspension with high, low, and normal settings puts drivers in control of damping levels. Set the suspension to high for off-roading at low speeds and better ground clearance. The low setting eases access, and the system automatically resets to normal once you reach cruising speed. The system is especially useful when navigating rocky terrain – the high setting keeps critical components safer from trail damage.

    For serious off-roaders, the TRD Pro trim unlocks capabilities not found on other Tundra models. The TRD Pro features 18-inch wheels mated to all-terrain tires, 2.5-inch diameter FOX shocks, a special off-road suspension, and aluminum skid plates. Thanks to the special FOX shocks, the front end is lifted an additional 1.1 inches. The TRD Pro also has a front stabilizer bar and bright red-painted suspension parts, as well as Multi-Terrain Select and Crawl Control, two manual systems that put drivers in control of the off-roading experience.

  • Interior

    The 2022 Tundra’s interior features quality finishes even at the budget trim levels, but the high-end 1794 Edition trim incorporates authentic wood finishes and leather seating surfaces for a truly luxurious cabin environment. The 1794 Edition gets its name from the Texas cattle ranch that previously existed on the location of Toyota’s manufacturing plant, and Toyota celebrates this heritage with lots of trim extras, including a panoramic moonroof and an innovative vertical power rear window.

    Interior Tech Makes This Truck Great

    To say the Tundra’s infotainment system is advanced is an understatement. Toyota reports that the operating software processes data and inputs five times faster than the previous generation system. Drivers can access that computing power via a standard 8-inch touchscreen or an available massive 14-inch landscape-mounted high-resolution screen, a category first.

    You can wirelessly connect to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with the Tundra’s upgraded system. Drivers will also appreciate enhanced voice recognition that responds with accuracy to conversational language. Toyota equipped the cabin with two microphones, so front-seat passengers can also easily issue voice commands for navigation, adjusting audio inputs, and more.

    The system’s ability to understand colloquial language is part of Toyota’s Human Machine Interface (HMI) technology, which aims to improve the overall touchscreen interfacing experience. The Tundra’s screens are more responsive and accurate than ever before. Available connected navigation uses cloud-based connectivity to send directions with real-time traffic updates and current google-driven point-of-interest mapping.

    The Tundra also includes a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 10 devices, and owners can link Apple Music or Amazon Music accounts to the system’s Integrated Streaming capability. Toyota Connected Services, the app-based integration system, lets drivers store profiles with vehicle settings, so remote starting in winter can include temperature settings and even activation of seat heaters. It also includes access to subscription-based safety and monitoring services.

    A 12.3-inch driver information display is also available and adds to the dash’s abundant technology array. The display digitizes the tachometer and speedometer and provides opportunities for the driver to add and customize additional display data, such as towing information, engine performance, and drive modes. It’s helpful during off-roading activities because the display can even show pitch and roll information.

  • Safety

    Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) is an industry-leading suite of driver-assist technology that Toyota continues to standardize across its vehicle model range. Every trim in the 2022 Tundra lineup receives the newest version, TSS 2.5. TSS 2.5 relies on a series of cameras, sensors, and highly tuned radar to constantly monitor the area surrounding the vehicle and audibly alert the driver – and actively assist with braking/steering – when conditions change.

    How TSS 2.5 Helps You

    The comprehensive Pre-Collision System adapts to different driving conditions, alerting the driver to hazards and providing automatic emergency braking when necessary. It can detect pedestrians even in low-light conditions and works especially well when turning at intersections. The system also provides steering assistance up to and including emergency steering intervention to help drivers avoid a crash.

    The Tundra’s enhanced cruise control, called Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, works alongside the system’s Lane Departure Alert and Lane Tracing Assist systems to keep the vehicle centered in its lane and help it remain within a safe and consistent distance from the car ahead. When the Tundra drifts to the edge of its lane, the system will send gentle steering cues to nudge the vehicle back to the center. The system also adjusts speed automatically in response to changes in roadway traffic patterns.

    Other standard safety systems include Automatic High Beams, Road Sign Assist, and a Rear Seat Reminder. The TSS 2.5 suite also incorporates Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. It’s an extra set of eyes to help drivers with historically stressful maneuvers, like backing out into a busy street or changing lanes on the highway. Combined with its high-strength steel frame, these systems make the Tundra safer than ever before.

    What about trailering? Hooking up and hauling trailers creates plenty of white knuckle moments for drivers, but Toyota’s available trailering technology aims to relieve that stress for good. The Integrated Brake Controller can sense when the trailer is connected, including estimating its length, and will extend the Blind Spot Monitoring alert to include the area behind the trailer.
