Long Island's Exclusive First Look at the Next Gen 2022 Toyota Tundra

Posted at Fri, Oct 8, 2021 9:00 AM

With a lineage built on dependability, quality, and utility, the Toyota Tundra has long been one of North America’s most trusted pickup trucks. Designed to deliver unending durable get up and go, the engineering behind the Tundra continues to evolve to greater heights, and perhaps there is no better example of that than the next generation 2022 model. The newest version of this truck has plenty in store, and we here at Westbury Toyota are more than happy to share this information with you.

Two New Powertrain Options

For 2022, the Toyota Tundra will have two powertrain options, both of which will give you all you need and then some. The first is a twin-turbo 24-valve chain-driven V6 engine that will feature Dual VVTi systems and is paired to a 10-speed Electronically Controlled Automatic Transmission with Intelligence (ECTi). This setup is capable of putting out 389 horsepower (hp) and 479 pound-feet (lb-ft) of torque.

The second engine is a hybrid twin-turbo V6 and, as part of the iFORCE MAX powertrain, it delivers some impressive performance numbers: 437 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain is basically the same as that of the V6 but for one notable difference: There’s a motor generator with a clutch within a bell housing that’s positioned between the transmission and the engine. This motor generator provides additional power that is then transferred through the transmission. This entire powertrain was engineered to give drivers the utmost in turns of torque and power, but also delivers efficiency, controlled handling, and a surprisingly quiet ride.

Plenty of Personalization Options

People need full-sized trucks for a plethora of reasons, and that is why it is so important for them to have a lot of different configuration options. The 2022 Toyota Tundra will have plenty of options available, starting with cab size. Both the CrewMax and Double Cab will have four doors, and the CrewMax will come with your choice of a 6.5 or 5.5-foot bed while the Double Cab allows for either a 6.5 or 8.1-foot bed.

There are going to be six different grade levels for the 2022 Tundra: SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 and the TRD Pro. The TRD Pro will only be available with the iFORCE MAX powertrain, which is also an available option on the 1794, Platinum, and Limited trims. For those with a love of off-roading adventures, there’s good news: the TRD Off-Road Package will be available on the Limited, SR5, and 1794 models and will include skid plates, a TRD off-road suspension, 18-inch TRD wheels, and some cosmetic additions.

For ultimate customization, there’s a considerable number of exterior paint options you will be able to choose from including:

  • Wind Chill Pearl
  • Celestial Silver Metallic
  • Super White
  • Magnetic Gray Metallic
  • Super Sonic Red
  • Midnight Black Metallic
  • Lunar Rock
  • Army Green
  • Smoked Mesquite (1794 and Limited trims only)
  • Blueprint
  • Solar Octane (TRD Pro only)
