The Toyota Tundra has been one of the highly successful full-sized pickup trucks in the US market. With a massive 5.7L V8 engine under the hood, the Tundra has been offering decent performance for a long time now. However, the 2022 model year is suspected to witness a complete redesign that will bring in a new and compact powerplant replacing the aging V8 motor. With its capable and promising off-road character and a towing capacity of the vehicle, along with the reliability that the automaker is renowned for, the Tundra attracts a selected set of buyers to it.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


All the upgrades that the 2022 Toyota Tundra holds would give us a sure hope on the sales it shall have. Keeping refresh in the interior, exterior, safety, and comfort features, apart from the upgraded powertrain would be a mercy that Toyota shall give to this pickup truck. Having its head against the massive Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado 1500, and RAM 1500, the refreshed Tundra would have a price tag of around $50,000. 

2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Double Cab Features

Being an entirely refreshed model, Toyota hasn’t given out the entire details of the line-up. The new model year shall even witness changes in the trim levels. Even the pricing is speculation. With betterment in every aspect, the new model shall have a mild price hike from the ongoing model. As per the hints Toyota gave out, the new model would have an advanced suspension setup, new headlights, and 18-inch wheels. 

The automaker also hints at a bigger infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and JBL sound systems. It would also get wireless charging for your phones. The advanced powertrain would also allow you to switch between different off-road drive modes. It would also offer an off-road cruise control system. The interiors would be red-themed with the ‘TRD Pro’ logo on the seatbacks. Apart from these, the vehicle would offer a panoramic sunroof, probably in the higher variants.

Which trim should you buy?

The TRD Pro of the Toyota Tundra is a standalone model, offering a plethora of standard features inside-out. Unlike a regular Tundra, the TRD Pro offers better off-road capabilities and complementary underpinnings to offer you the best off-road experience whenever you wish for. 

2022 Toyota Tundra Double Cab TRD Pro Release date

There has been no information regarding the release date of the 2022 Tundra. However, as per the timeline, the truck is likely to be available by fall 2021.

2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Double Cab Engine and Performance

Toyota has confirmed the replacement of the old V8 with a new V6. The 2022 Tundra TRD Pro is expected to come with a 3.5L twin-turbo V6 which is expected to dish out 409 horsepower and 479 lb-ft. of torque, which is similar to that of the new Land Cruiser. The power would be sent to all four wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission as per the speculations. The robust vehicle tows around 9900 lbs. of load with ease.

A full-size truck in this segment is not about sprinting to 60 MPH in shorter times or flooring the throttle for a quarter-mile race. However, the Tundra TRD Pro, in the previous V8 versions, has given decent acceleration figures, which assures the immense capabilities of the existing powertrain. It took 6.7 seconds to sprint to 60 MPH while the quarter-mile race was completed within 15.4 seconds. With the improved twin-turbo engine under the hood, we expect better performance in every aspect.

*2021 figures are used for reference

The 2021MY has got a sufficiently good stand in the segment in terms of the engine and its performance. However, the rivals had an edge over the Tundra every time. For the 2022 model, which is expected to come with a better engine, better transmission, better power, and torque, the vehicle would stand right-up against the hard rivals. Here the RAM 1500 Quad Cab seems the fastest in both the 60mph and quarter-mile sprints clocking 6.6 and 15 seconds, respectively, with the rest of the three following closely. 

2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Double Cab Fuel Economy

The improved engine onboard the 2022 Toyota Tundra would surely give better fuel economy ratings than the current V8 motor. The 5.7-liter unit is a thirsty engine with sub-par fuel efficiency ratings. However, the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 in the upcoming model would offer better performance with balanced efficiency ratings. The current engine offers 13 miles per gallon on city drives, 17 miles per gallon on highways, and 15 miles per gallon of combined mileage. With a class-leading 26.4-gallon fuel tank, you’ll get satisfactory driving range figures. It assures you to run 494 miles in the city, 646 miles on the highway, and 570 miles combined on a full tank of fuel.

The 2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro gets subpar fuel economy ratings. The Ford F-150 SuperCab and RAM 1500 Quad Cab get the best-in-class efficiency ratings of 22 and 21 MPG, respectively, but a smaller fuel tank makes them short in the range figures. On the other hand, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the least efficient option and seems to be a misfit when compared to the rivals averaging a combined range of 408 miles. 

2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Double Cab Interior

The bold and opulent interiors of the 2021 Toyota Tundra, however, have become heavily dated as per today’s standards. The upcoming model will get a way better and more comfortable cabin yet the outgoing model does offer a decently-equipped cabin as well. The outgoing TRD Pro Double Cab can even have a 6-seat configuration, 3 seats in the front and 3 at the rear. The cabin features a wide range of standard features to aid you in your drives. The upcoming model would feature red interiors with the ‘TRD Pro’ logo in the seatbacks. You would see a whole lot of utility spaces within the cabin placed ergonomically. The seats would be more comfortable and offer adjustability for comfortable seating. 

The cabin will come equipped with map lights, an air filtration system, leather upholstery, and many more. The rear seats offer 60/40 split-folding functionality. For the 2022 model, Toyota is planning to bring in Wireless charging technology, which makes the deal a bit sweeter. The headroom, shoulder room, and legroom seem average for the segment, while many rivals do offer spacious interiors. The front manual air conditioning works well in cooling the cabin. Outward visibility and the seating position are appreciable and complement well with each other.

The 2021 Tundra TRD Pro is the least spacious in the segment. In the rear legroom department, the Silverado goes the shortest. The Ford F-150 can be concluded as the most spacious in the segment, closely followed by the RAM 1500. Coming to the cargo department, Chevy Silverado gets a clear win over the rest of the rivals with a 71.1 cubic feet cargo volume. This is followed by the Ford F-150 and then the RAM 1500 that have trunk volumes of just above 60 cu.-ft. The cargo capacity of the 2022 Toyota Tundra is yet to be out. We expect a competitive effort from the brand this time. Some of the noteworthy features within the cabin are:

  • Heated and power-adjustable seats
  • Red interiors
  • Leather upholstery
  • Front manual air-conditioning
  • Air Filtration
  • 60/40 split-folding rear seats
  • Panoramic Sunroof

What’s there to keep you entertained?

The 2021 TRD Pro has an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that features an array of equipment including Smartphone integrations, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Satellite Radio, Bluetooth streaming, and many more. The system is mated with a 7-speaker audio system which gives good vocal output. The system also features navigation support.

For the 2022 model year, Toyota is probably blessing the Tundra TRD Pro with a much bigger infotainment system to compete with the 12-inch screens in Ford F-150 and RAM 1500. The speculations do spot a JBL sound system within the cabin of the TRD Pro, which would be a much-needed update for the infotainment of this machine. The system would get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which is offered in the ongoing model too. Some of the noteworthy features are:

  • MP3 Player
  • Apple CarPlay
  • Android Auto
  • Wi-Fi Hotspot
  • JBL sound system
  • SiriusXM Satellite Radio
  • Bluetooth connectivity

2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Double Cab Exterior

Being significantly different from the ongoing model year, the 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro would have better and catchy exterior styling. As per the confirmation from the company, the model would come up with new headlights and 18-inch wheels, wrapped in Falken wild peal all-terrain tires. The huge grille with three integrated LED light bars would be exclusive for the TRD Pro models. The three amber running lights are indulged to the front grille above the ‘TOYOTA’ badging which would also be for the TRD Pro alone. The ongoing model is 79.9-inches wide, which we expect to exceed 80-inches in the new model year. 

The body gets a lot of black details throughout the body. Black elements on the bonnet and fenders have the ‘Tundra’ badging over them. The new Tundra would ride on the TNGA frame architecture. With sliding rear windows and a massive panoramic sunroof onboard, the 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is all set to impress the market with muscular and bold looks. The new images show the ‘TRD Pro’ logo over the tailgate too.

The Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is the heaviest in the segment. It gets 10-inches of remarkable ground clearance. The 2022 model would surely have an increase in dimensions, especially in the width. The vehicle is surely well-proportioned to offer a decent ride. The Chevrolet Colorado has the longest wheelbase in the segment but is only two inches longer than the Toyota, while the RAM 1500 Quad Cab is the widest option. Notable exterior features are:

  • A massive black front grille
  • Heated and power side mirrors

The 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is yet to hit the markets and hasn’t been rated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The 2021 model year has also not been tested by them. However, the regular Tundra models have been crash-tested in the 2021 model year, receiving an overall 5-star rating from the NHTSA.

2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Double Cab Competition

2022 Toyota Tundra Double Cab TRD Pro vs Ford F-150 SuperCab

The Ford F-150 SuperCab has been one of the best-selling pickup trucks in the segment. With a plethora of features and better underpinnings, the F-150 gets you premium interiors, better tech tweaks, and a catchy exterior design. It looks more modern and practical than the Tundra. However, the 2022 Tundra TRD Pro is going to come up with some better deals, which shall pose challenges to the F-150 as well. Apart from all these, the reliability and dependability of Toyota remain unmatched. 

2022 Toyota Tundra Double Cab vs 2021 RAM 1500 Quad Cab

Being cheaper and practical than the TRD Pro, the RAM 1500 would surely be a value-for-money choice. The RAM 1500 offers better performance, efficiency, interior layout, and unique exterior styling, which makes it an all-in-one package. It also gets several options to customize your buy. Toyota still has space for the new model. With improved styling and a twin-turbo motor, the TRD Pro shall offer tough competition to the RAM 1500.

2022 Toyota Tundra Double Cab vs 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Double Cab

The Chevrolet Silverado has been another best-selling pickup from the automaker. With impressive interior and tech-tweaks, the Silverado impresses every buyer. However, coming to the performance front, Silverado falls far behind the Tundra TRD Pro, even in the ongoing model. The 2022 Tundra TRD Pro would have better underpinnings, which shall make it out of the reach of Silverado until it receives the desired upgrades. 

2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Double Cab Final Verdict

The Toyota Tundra models have been the slow-selling vehicles in the segment for the previous years. However, the automaker has got the much-awaited upgrades in the model for this year. We hope the 2022 Tundra TRD Pro will be another benchmark from the automaker. With the replacement of the thirsty V8 with twin-turbo V6, the efficiency and performance shall improve. 

The well-tuned suspension setup, new and better interiors, competitive tech-front, and the massive panoramic sunroof shall doubtlessly make the deal preferable to many of the buyers. Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is one of the best off-road heavy-duty pickups with a good safety front made by a reliable brand.
