2022 Toyota Tundra For Sale – The introduction of a fresh half-ton pickup can be a cause for celebration around here, especially when the truck in question replaces a vehicle that has been on the market with just small changes for the better part of 15 years. When the same rig comes with a variety of new engines, the excitement is sparked into the top gear.
2022 Toyota Tundra For Sale
What’s New for 2022?
Toyota offers the Tundra an urgent, complete design overhaul following the previous generation that was largely unchanged from its first appearance in 2007. Though it was refreshed for 2014’s model year however, it was unable to take sales from its domestic half-ton competitors such as those of the Ford F-150, the Ram 1500 as well as its Chevy Silverado 1500 in addition to the GMC Sierra 1500. The new Tundra can’t yet outsell these rivals however, its numerous improvements should make it much more competitive and attractive when it reaches dealerships this winter.
Before, the Tundra was offered exclusively with the naturally-aspirated V-8 engine. In the new model year, the Tundra comes with a V-6 and it’s much more powerful than the previous engine with two fewer cylinders. The 10-speed automatic transmission replaces the older six-speed on all models.
A typical 3.5-litre twin-turbo V-6 produces 389 hp and 479 Lb-ft of force (compare with the 2021 Tundra’s 381hp, 401 Lb-ft V-8). For those who are looking for more power, they can combine this V-6 engine using an electric motor. This hybrid option is available the output increases up to 437 horsepower and 583 lb-ft of torque. These hybrid systems offer serious technology.
The Tundra eliminates the earlier models’ selection of a normally in-line V6s and V8s in favour the twin turbo 3.5L V6s. One of them is electronically augmented with the hybrid system. The base V6 is able to produce 389 horsepower while the other produces 479 pounds of torque. Both are improvements over the 5.7L V8 engine that drove the 2021 Tundra. It produced 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. The addition of a hybrid’s electric motor will boost the 2022 Tundra’s power at 437 horsepower. It also produces 583 pounds-feet of torque. The 10-speed automatic transmission is normal. It replaces a 6-speed automatic used in the ’21 model.
Truck makers love to beat their chests to show the maximum payload and towing figures even in the half-ton range. This is why Toyota was all too eager to announce that its latest Tundra can pull 12,000 pounds using the hybrid V6 as well as the right towing package. This is 20 percent higher than the old Tundra towing capacity, which is quite impressive, indeed. Figures for the smaller engine aren’t yet available.
As with payloads, a half-ton truck’s engine and body design affect its towing rating. This is why we’ll select the largest hybrid powertrain four-door at Ford and Ram to contrast with Toyota’s own iForce MAX. In this case, search for 12700 pounds; at Ford or 11,560 pounds at Ram.
