2022 Toyota Tundra Msrp – The introduction of a fresh half-ton pickup can be a cause for cheers around here, especially when the pickup in question replaces a vehicle that has been produced with only minor adjustments for the better portion of 15 years. If that same truck is equipped with new engines, the excitement levels really go into the top gear.
2022 Toyota Tundra Msrp
What’s New for 2022?
Toyota provides the Tundra the much-needed, comprehensive redesign after the previous generation has remained largely the same since its launch in 2007. Even though it was updated in 2014 however, it was unable to take sales from the domestic half-ton competition like that of Ford F-150, the Ram 1500 as well as the Chevy Silverado 1500, along with the GMC Sierra 1500. The brand new Tundra can’t yet surpass the competition of any of them The Tundra’s numerous upgrades should make it much more competitive and attractive when it hits the market this winter.
Before, the Tundra was available only with an naturally aspirated V-8 engine. With the arrival of the new model year the Tundra has a V-6 engine, which is more efficient than the older engine even though it has two less than the number of cylinders. A 10-speed automated 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-hpand 401 pounds of torque V-8). Buyers looking to increase their power can connect their V-6 engine with an electric motor. With this optional hybrid setup output boosts 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 in-line V6s and V8s and instead makes use of two twin-turbo 3.5L V6s. One of them is that is electrically enhanced by the hybrid system. The base V6 is able to produce 389 horsepower as well as 479 pound-feet of torque. Both are improvements against the 5.7L V8 engine that drove the 2021 Tundra. It produced 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet in torque. A hybrid’s electric motor makes the 2022 Tundra’s power at 437 horsepower. It also produces 583 pounds-feet of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission comes as the standard. It replaces a six-speed automatic that’s in the 21 model.
Truck manufacturers like to beat their chests with the most towing and payload numbers even in this half-ton segment. This is why Toyota is all-too-excited to tell us its new Tundra can tow 12,000 pounds in the new hybrid V6 as well as the correct towing options. This figure is around 20 percent higher than the older Tundra which is a great thing, in any case. Figures for those with a smaller engine aren’t available at this time.
Much like payload, a half ton vehicle’s engine and body design influence the towing capacity. To help, we’ll choose the most powerful hybrid powertrain four door at Ford and Ram to compare with Toyota’s IForce MAX. In this light, look for 12700 pounds; at Ford and 11,560 pounds in Ram.
