New Toyota 2022 Toyota Tundra for Sale in Warwick, RI
The Toyota Tundra has always been a rugged, reliable, and ready-for-action full-sized pickup truck. For model year 2022, though, these traits have been taken to a new level as the Tundra has been wholly redesigned. This consistently award-winning beast was introduced in 1999 as a 2000 model year vehicle and was the first from the automaker to be manufactured in North America. With its last redesign happening in 2007, the Tundra needed something fresh and new for its third generation, and Toyota has certainly delivered: this all-new version has more style, performance, and capability than ever before.
After nearly 15 years without a redesign of Toyota’s full-sized pickup, there’s quite a lot to discuss. For starters, the V8 engine is no longer offered. Instead, two new powertrains take its place: a standard gasoline-only twin-turbo V6 and an available hybrid that pairs that V6 with an electric motor. The six-speed automatic transmission of old has been replaced by a new 10-speed as well. The ’22 Tundra’s towing and payload capacities have also increased to 12,000 and 1,940 pounds, respectively, thanks to its brand-new chassis.
As you’d expect from any redesign, the latest Tundra looks more modern than its predecessor, with a bolder grille, distinctively aggressive wheel arches, and an entirely reimagined interior as well. One of its standout attributes is the refreshed infotainment system with a standard 8-inch touchscreen that includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A 14-inch touchscreen is available on some trims, and the Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 system of active driver aids is standard across the board.
Trims and Body Styles
The redesigned Tundra will come in six trim levels: SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition, and TRD Pro. Two four-door body styles, Double Cab and CrewMax, are to be offered. The Double Cab models will pair with either a 6.5-foot or an 8.1-ft. bed, while the CrewMax versions will be available with a 5.5-ft. or 6.5-ft. bed. (To be more specific, the SR, SR5, and Limited are offered with both body styles; however, unlike the SR, the CrewMax SR5 and Limited can be ordered with the 6.5-ft. bed. With the CrewMax SR, only the 5.5-ft. bed is available.) Similarly, the Double Cab Limited is only sold with the 6.5-ft. bed, whereas the Double Cab SR and SR5 can be ordered with the 6.5-ft. or 8.1-ft. bed. The Platinum and 1794 Edition will both be CrewMax-only and pair with either the 5.5-ft. or 6.5-ft. bed. Last, the TRD Pro will come only as a CrewMax with a 5.5-ft. bed.
Powertrains and Capabilities
The standard powerplant in all trims but the TRD Pro is an i-FORCE turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that makes 389 hp and 479 lb.-ft. of torque. The TRD Pro will get the i-FORCE MAX hybrid system, which integrates the same gasoline engine alongside an electric motor to produce 437 hp and 583 lb.-ft. of torque. This hybrid powertrain is an option for every other trim. Both the gasoline and hybrid systems are linked to a new 10-speed automatic transmission as well.
While most trims get standard rear-wheel drive, four-wheel drive will be an extremely popular option (the TRD Pro will be strictly 4WD). The ’22 Tundra is far more capable than the model it replaces, since its maximum towing capacity is now 12,000 lb. and its top payload capacity is 1,940 lb. As of this writing, the hybrid Tundra’s EPA-estimated fuel economy hasn’t been posted.
Equipment by Trim
Toyota Tundra fans will be delighted to find that the new edition is brimming with the latest and greatest features. The base SR has LED headlights and taillights, heated side mirrors, front door handles with touch-sensor lock and unlock, 18-inch wheels, keyless entry, push-button start, automatic climate control, a 12-volt power outlet, a power rear window, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a rear under-seat storage compartment with removable and adjustable partitions. An SR Tow Package is available to add a Class-IV tow hitch receiver and wiring harness with a 7-pin connector. The SR5 receives a deck rail system with four adjustable tie-down cleats and fixed cargo bed tie-down points, in addition to LED fog lights.
The Limited gets 20-inch wheels, plus high-end auto-dimming and reverse tilt-down side mirrors with turn-signal and blind-spot indicators. Inside, the Limited has synthetic leather upholstery, heated and ventilated power-adjustable front seats, driver’s seat memory, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and a HomeLink universal garage door opener. Buyers can also choose to add the TRD Off-Road Package (20-inch TRD wheels with all-terrain tires, TRD Off-Road decals, an off-road suspension with Bilstein shocks, skid plates, mudguards, and TRD interior accents). The Platinum gains auto-leveling headlights, rain-sensing wipers, a bed-mounted 120-volt power outlet, LED bed lights, a wireless smartphone charger, a panoramic moonroof, leather seats, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, a digital rearview mirror, a power tilt-and-telescopic heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated rear seats, and rear door sunshades.
The 1794 Edition is like the Platinum, but with chrome exterior accents and wood-grain interior trim. The TRD Pro is the most rugged of the bunch, and it stands out as the only with the “TOYOTA” stamped grille in lieu of the smaller logo. Its other distinctions are a TRD front skid plate, FOX internal bypass shocks, 18-inch BBS wheels, TRD Pro decals and badges, front and rear mudguards, an electronically controlled locking rear differential, an off-road suspension with a 1.1-inch lift, a TRD Pro front stabilizer bar, and a multi-terrain monitor with selectable front, side, and rear camera views. Several of those top-spec amenities can be ordered with the lower-level trims through optional packages.
Safety and Infotainment Tech
Every trim will be set up with the Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 system of driver-assist features, which contains a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, full-speed range dynamic radar cruise control, lane departure alert with steering assist, lane tracing assist, automatic high beams, and road sign assist. The SR5 adds front and rear parking assist with automatic braking, and the Limited gets a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert and trailer merge warning. The Platinum and TRD Pro top off with a panoramic view monitor.
The multimedia setup in the ’22 Tundra has been overhauled with great results. The SR’s infotainment system has an 8-inch touchscreen (an inch larger than last year’s), a six-speaker sound system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SiriusXM satellite radio, and Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming. The SR5 gets a nine-speaker sound system. The Limited receives a brand-new 14-inch touchscreen, and the Platinum and TRD Pro both come with a deluxe 12-speaker JBL audio system. If you want some of those high-end features with the less expensive trims, many of them can be added on at an extra cost.
