2022 Toyota Tundra Mileage – The announcement of a brand new half-ton pickup causes cheers around here, especially when the vehicle in question replaces a car that has been produced with only minor adjustments for the better fifteen years. If the same vehicle comes with a choice of new engines, the excitement level really kicks into high gear.
2022 Toyota Tundra Mileage
What’s New for 2022?
Toyota offers the Tundra the much-needed, comprehensive revamp after the previous generation was largely unchanged from its first appearance in 2007. Even though it was refreshed for the 2014 model year the Tundra struggled to take the market share from half-ton domestic rivals like that of Ford F-150, the Ram 1500 as well as The Chevy Silverado 1500, or the GMC Sierra 1500. The new Tundra has yet to outsell any of those alternatives The Tundra’s numerous upgrades will help make it much more competitive and attractive when it’s available in dealerships this winter.
Prior to that, the Tundra was only available with the naturally-aspirated V-8 engine. For the new model year, the Tundra comes with a V-6 and it’s much more powerful than the previous engine with two fewer engines. A 10-speed auto transmission replaces the six-speed model on all models.
A normal 3.5-litre twin-turbo V-6 produces 389 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque (compare with the 2021 Tundra’s 381-hpand 401 lb-ft V-8). Customers looking for more power can combine their V-6 engine with an electric engine. With this option of a hybrid setup output boosts up to 437 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque. These hybrid systems feature serious technology.
The Tundra is a departure from the previous models’ selection of a normally produced V6 or V8 for the choice dual twin-turbo 3.5L V6s. One is electrically augmented by the hybrid system. The base V6 produces 389 horsepower as well as 479 pounds of torque. Both are improvements in comparison to the 5.7L V8 engine that drove the 2021 Tundra. It produced 381 horsepower as well as 401 pound-feet in torque. In addition, a hybrid’s electric engine raises the 2022 Tundra’s horsepower to 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission comes as standard. It replaces the six-speed manual that is in the ’21 model.
Truck manufacturers like to beat their chests with the most payload and towing figures, even in this half-ton category. This is the reason Toyota is all-too-excited to inform us that its new Tundra can haul 12,000 pounds by the V6 hybrid engine and appropriate towing equipment. The figure is more than 20 percent more than the old Tundra towing capacity, which is quite impressive, indeed. Estimates for this smaller engine aren’t available yet.
Like payloads too, a half-ton truck’s engine and body shape affect the towing capacity. That’s why we’ll pick the biggest hybrid powertrain four-door model at Ford and Ram in order to compare it to Toyota’s own iForce MAX. In this light, look for at least 12,700 pounds; when you go to Ford and 11,560 pounds for Ram.
