Top Performance Features in the 2022 Tundra


Full-Size Pickup Truck with Rugged Performance and Capability

Toyota gave the Tundra an update for 2022. The update involved a major exterior and interior redesign with new packages and optional features. The 2022 Toyota Tundra performance continues to impress as it handles daily driving and rugged off-roading with ease.

One Engine Tuned Three Ways

The 2022 Toyota Tundra performance features a standard i-Force 3.5-liter Twin Turbo V6 with 348 horsepower and 3405 lb-ft of torque. An upgraded i-Force 3.5-liter Twin-Turbo V6 that delivers up to 389 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque comes on upgraded trims like the 1794 models.

If this isn’t enough, the same engine comes with a boosted drive system called the i-Force MAX Powertrain with 437 horsepower and 583 lb-ft of torque. This boost in horsepower comes from a mild hybrid powertrain system that includes an electric motor integrated into the 10-speed automatic transmission. At low speeds, drivers will notice the Tundra uses the electric motor, then switches to the hybrid system during acceleration. This engine comes on the TRD Pro models.

Toyota uses a new technology called the Power Control Unit that accesses the 288V sealed battery under the rear passenger seats. This durable battery helps the Force Max Powertrain use the Multi-Terrain Select Drive Modes like SPORT or SPORT+ for instantaneous responsiveness from the electric motor. Drivers can put the mode into TOW/HAUL when they need more torque.

Capability and Fuel Economy

The 2022 Toyota Tundra performance parts give the full-size pickup truck impressive fuel economy. The EPA-estimated fuel economy for the hybrid V6 is not yet available, but the standard engine delivers an EPA-estimated 18/24 MPG, while the upgraded V6 gets an EPA-estimated 17/22.

The SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, and 1794 trims come with rear-wheel drive as a standard feature. Buyers can upgrade to four-wheel drive. Drivers who use their Tundra to tow their toys get up to 12,000 pounds of maximum towing capacity when their trucks are equipped with the necessary towing gear.

Along with choosing their powertrain and drivetrain, buyers can also choose from three bed sizes. The upper trim levels come with a 5.5-foot bed, but the SR trim gives buyers the choice of a 6.5 and 8.1-foot bed for hauling more a maximum of 1,830 pounds of payload.

Buyers can also choose from various cab configurations that include the spacious Double Cab and the CrewMax cab. Both seat up to five comfortably, but the Double Cab is the only option with the large bed, while the CrewMax offers more space inside the cabin.
