2022 Toyota Tundra Price, Review, Ratings and Pictures

Updated on: July 5, 2021


In 2022, Toyota is expected to release an all-new third-generation model of the Toyota Tundra with a complete redesign inside and out. The current gas-guzzling 5.7L V8 is expected to be replaced with more efficient options, possibly even a hybrid powertrain to keep up with rivals. The suspension is also expected to receive a complete overhaul, which should improve the ride quality, and chances are of even getting air suspension. A lot of modern features are also expected along with a more modern and comfortable interior.

Overall Rating


Even with its dated design and features, Toyota managed to shift more than 100,000 units annually, which is a fraction of the sales achieved by more accomplished rivals like the Ford F Series and Chevrolet Silverado. We can expect the new model to ramp up sales, thanks to the legendary Toyota reliability and ease of use. The current model is already very capable off-road, and we can expect the new model to carry the torch and bring in new off-road-ready features, while still offering a comfortable cabin. The new Tundra will compete with rivals like the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500, and the Ford F-150, all of which received significant updates recently.

2022 Toyota Tundra Features

The 2022 model will get revised trim levels with a lot more features on offer. Because of the extra technology, the prices will be bumped up slightly. The Crew Cab models skip the base SR model and are available in 5 trim levels: SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1974 edition, and TRD Pro. The base SR5 offers standard features like an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with 9 speakers, auto-dimming rearview mirror, fog lights, LED accent lights, manual air conditioning, 6 passenger seating with split-folding bench seats at the front and rear, and remote keyless entry.

The off-road-focused TRD Pro model comes next with a base price of $51,495 and gets 4-wheel-drive as standard along with features like front tow hooks, skid plate, upgraded front shocks & Fox rear shocks, and a sunroof, but misses out on some features from the Platinum model like dual-zone climate control and memory seats.

We Recommend:

We recommend the 2022 Toyota Tundra Limited trim model starting at $44,255 which gets a lot more bells and whistles like standard LED headlights, dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery with power-adjustable bucket seats at the front, heating function, keyless entry, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and navigation and is a great value for the price considering the base trim.

Price:

The prices for the 2022 Toyota Tundra Crewmax will get revised and are going to witness a price hike of $1,000. This makes the 2022 Toyota Tundra cost $37,970 for the base trim and $51,945 for the top trim TRD Pro.

Release Date

Toyota hasn’t announced any official release dates yet, but we can expect the new Tundra to reach showrooms by the end of 2021.

2022 Toyota Tundra Engine and Performance

For 2022, the Tundra is expected to ditch the gas-guzzling V8 engine and adopt more efficient powertrains like the 3.5L V6 found in the Tacoma pickup for the lower trims, and the more powerful twin-turbocharged 3.4L V6 from the Lexus models on the higher models, which will make it more powerful than the current V8 engine. The 6-speed automatic transmission is expected to be carried over, while the higher trims might get the more modern 10-speed unit. 

Like the new Ford F-150, the new Tundra is also expected to get an efficient hybrid powertrain which will cost a premium over the regular models. The current model also lags behind the competition in terms of ride comfort and handling because of the old suspension setup, but the new model will get a completely revised suspension with coils all around, and even an optional air suspension setup. The TRD Pro model gets an upgraded setup with Fox branded shocks for better off-road capability. The steering has a lot of heft to it, which makes city driving a chore. Navigating tight parking lots will also take some effort because of the large turning radius.

The current model produces the most power among competitors but is also more expensive. 60 MPH comes up in just 6.4 seconds, and it crosses the quarter-mile in 15.1 seconds. Both the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 get a similar engine setup and take 7.1 seconds to reach 60 MPH. As expected, the Ford F-150 is the slowest with a 0-60 time of 7.6 seconds because of its low-capacity engine.

2022 Toyota Tundra Fuel Economy

7.0/10

We can expect the new model to be a lot more efficient, especially if Toyota introduces a hybrid powertrain. The current model is one of the least efficient pickup trucks on the market with EPA ratings of just 13 MPG in the city and 17 MPG on the highway. Even with the large 26.4-gallon fuel tank, the Tundra only manages 449 miles of highway range.

In comparison, all of its rivals are a lot more efficient, thanks to their more modern and efficient powertrains. The Ford F-150 is the most efficient with a combined rating of 21 MPG, followed by both the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado with a combined rating of 17 MPG. When comparing the overall range, Ford with its class-leading mileage and fuel tank capacity leads the range department at 546 miles combined.

2022 Toyota Tundra Interior

7.0/10

The interiors of the new Tundra will be a big step forward compared to the current model. The current interior can be described as one old and outdated interior with massive buttons and a small infotainment display in the center. The big buttons will be replaced by more intuitive buttons similar to more modern Toyotas. The lower trims will get a 6 seater configuration with split-folding bench seats at the front and rear. Higher trims will get bucket seats at the front with power adjustability and heating function. The current Tundra already gets spacious and comfortable rear seats with plenty of space on offer. Interior quality will also see a huge improvement with better materials and build quality, like modern Toyota models.

The infotainment system will also receive a huge upgrade with a 12-inch touchscreen infotainment system and features like Apple Carplay and Android Auto coming standard. The current model is already loaded with features like satellite radio, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi hotspot, navigation, and connected services. The new model will get upgrades like upgraded voice control with Alexa built-in and possibly some other features. Some expected interior features include:

  • 12-inch touchscreen infotainment with dynamic navigation
  • Large head-up display
  • Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Advanced voice control
  • Wireless charging
  • Push-button start
  • Leather upholstery with power-adjustable front seats
  • Satellite and HD radio
  • 12-speaker JBL sound system
  • Dual-zone climate control

2022 Toyota Tundra Exterior

7.0/10

The new Toyota Tundra will get a completely redesigned exterior with an updated face and modern design. The LED headlights will get an edgy design and will wrap around the huge grille. The rear will also be redesigned with new LED taillights and modern elements. The front grille is also expected to get a light bar below the emblem for better off-road visibility. The new LED DRLs also look unique and extend to the fender for better visibility. The current model certainly looks outdated compared to its modern rivals regardless of the facelifts it has gone through. The new design should be enough to keep it up to date.

The current model is already limited in terms of bed options, and the new model might follow the same trend with better packaging and space utilization, thanks to the new TNGA platform. When it comes to ground clearance, the Toyota shows the best off-road practicality by offering the best-in-class clearance of 10.2 inches. Although, the pickup is also the heaviest in the competition. Some expected exterior features include:

  • LED headlights with DRLs
  • Sunroof
  • Bold new grille with integrated light-bar
  • LED taillights
  • Bigger wheels with better design and six lugs

2022 Toyota Tundra Safety

8.0/10

The new Tundra will be based on the modern TNGA platform which also underpins several other models like the Toyota Sequoia, Tacoma, and 4Runner. With a lighter-weight construction and improved rigidity, the new model is expected to perform well in terms of safety. The new model is also expected to get Toyota’s latest suite of safety features, including automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, and more. The higher trims will also get features like blind-spot monitoring, 360-degree camera, and rear cross-traffic alert. 

The current model managed 4-stars overall in the NHTSA tests but bombed the IIHS tests with poor ratings because of its outdated platform. With a “Poor” score in the small overlap front test, the current Tundra is the worst performing pickup truck in its class. The new model should overcome all these shortcomings with a rigid platform and a lot more safety features. Some expected standard safety features include:

  • Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Lane keep assist with lane tracing
  • Automatic high beams
  • Road sign assist

2022 Toyota Tundra Competition

9.0/10

2022 Toyota Tundra vs 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

With all the planned updates, the new Toyota Tundra will get similar engine options like the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and offer similar features. As of now, the Chevrolet Silverado is easily the better pick of the two with a modern design, more comfortable cabin, and several engine options, including an efficient Diesel engine. The Silverado also offers more value with a lower price point and also shows more practicality. The Tundra, on the other hand, offers Toyota's legendary reliability and the powerful V8 engine as standard. The Tundra also offers better off-road capability, especially in the TRD Pro trim.

2022 Toyota Tundra vs 2022 GMC Sierra 1500

Like the Chevrolet Silverado, the Sierra 1500 also received a recent redesign with more features and engine options. For 2022, the Sierra is expected to get an updated front-end design but no extra features. The new updates will make the Tundra a much better choice overall with more efficient engines and features similar to the Sierra. The Tundra will also be more reliable overall and will fetch a better resale value. Unlike the Tundra, the Sierra also gets an efficient Duramax diesel engine with excellent towing capacity. Overall, if the Tundra gets the expected updates, it will be the better pick of the two.

2022 Toyota Tundra vs 2022 Ford F-150

As expected, the Toyota Tundra will be the more reliable of the two and is still the benchmark in its class. The current model Tundra already gets a whole host of safety features which will be further improved with the new model. The Tundra is also a more capable off-roader than the F-150. The new Tundra is expected to improve on all fronts and will give tough competition to the F-150 when it launches later this year. The Ford F-150 received a full redesign last year, and for 2022, the new all-electric lightning model will make it one of the first all-electric pickup trucks on the market. Unlike the current model Tundra, F-150 also gets an efficient hybrid powertrain.

2022 Toyota Tundra Final Verdict

With the current model already overdue for an update, the new Tundra will finally turn the tides and offer plenty of new features along with a handsome new design. The more efficient powertrains will make it appealing to a wider audience. With a new platform, new engine options, and more modern features, coupled with Toyota’s legendary reliability, the new Tundra will be an excellent choice when it launches later this year. If you’re planning on buying a new full-size pickup truck, the new 2022 Toyota Tundra is definitely worth the wait.
