2022 Toyota Tundra Design – The arrival of a new half-ton pickup brings celebration around here, especially when the pickup in question replaces a car that has been produced with only minor modifications for the better half of 15 years. When the same model comes with a variety of fresh engines, our enthusiasm levels really go into the high gears.
2022 Toyota Tundra Design
What’s New for 2022?
Toyota provides the Tundra an urgent, complete revamp after the previous generation was mostly unchanged since its introduction in 2007. Though it was refreshed in 2014 for the model year but it had a difficult time stealing sales from domestic half-ton rivals like that of Ford F-150, the Ram 1500 as well as that of the Chevy Silverado 1500 in addition to the GMC Sierra 1500. The updated Tundra can’t yet outsell any of those alternatives However, its many improvements will make it more competitive and appealing when it reaches dealerships this winter.
Before, the Tundra was offered exclusively with an naturally-aspirated V-8 engine. In the new model year the Tundra has a V-6 engine, and it’s much more efficient than the older engine despite having two fewer engine cylinders. A 10-speed auto transmission replaces the six-speed model for all models.
A basic 3.5-litre twin-turbo V-6 produces 389 hp and 479 pounds of torque (compare that to the 2021 Tundra’s 381 horsepower, 401 lb-ft V-8). Buyers who want more power can match this V-6 engine to an electric motor. This hybrid option is available output is increased from 437 to 583 pounds of torque. The hybrid systems provide serious tech.
The Tundra removes the old models’ choice of normally engineered V6 or V8 in favor that of twin 3.5L V6s. One is which is electrically enhanced with an electronic hybrid system. The base engine produces 389 horsepower, and 479 pounds of torque. Both are improved from the 5.7L V8 that powered the 2021 Tundra. It was able to produce 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet torque. By adding a hybrid’s electrical motor, it makes the 2022 Tundra’s power up to 583 horsepower, 437 horsepower. pounds-feet of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission is common. It replaces a 6-speed automatic that’s in the 21 model.
Truck makers like to thump their chests by presenting the highest payload and towing figures even in this half-ton market. That’s the reason Toyota is all-too-excited to tell us its new Tundra can haul 12,000 pounds in the new hybrid V6 engine and the right towing package. This is 20 percent more than the previous Tundra in fact. Estimates for small engine aren’t available yet.
Much like payload, a half ton vehicle’s engine and body structure influence its towing rating. That’s why we’ll select the largest hybrid powertrain four-door model at Ford and Ram to compare with Toyota’s own iForce MAX. In this regard, you should look for at least 12,700 pounds; in Ford or 11,560 pounds for Ram.
