The 2022 Toyota Tundra range was unveiled in full this week and it comes with a rather high starting price of $35,950. However, for that kind of money you do get a powerful V6 and a completely new suspension setup.
The 2022 Toyota Tundra range kicks off with the SR model, that’s fitted with a 348 HP, 3.4-liter V6 that also offers 405 lb-ft of torque. However, this version only comes in rear-wheel drive guise and with the lowest starting price that we mentioned earlier, of $35,950 without the destination charge. Chip that in as well and the price goes up to $37,645. At that price point, the base SR Tundra is more expensive than all of its competitors, from the Ford F-150 to the Ram 1500.
If the base SR model isn’t exactly to your taste, with a 6.5-foot bed, extended-cab and rear-wheel drive configuration, you can also have it in other combinations as well. You can choose between the extended or crew-cab configurations with either 5.5-, 6.5- or 8.1-foot beds, depending on your preference. You can also get the Tundra with all-wheel drive, of course, for an additional $3,000.
The next trim-line is the Tundra SR5, which starts at $42,450 including destination. Compared to the SR, you get an 8-inch infotainment screen inside, an analogue instrument cluster and cloth seats. Moving up in the range, the $50,595 Limited model brings chrome trims on the outside, a 14-inch infotainment screen and faux leather seats. The Platinum level gets the price tag up to $58,685 and includes dark chrome on the outside, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster on the inside, a JBL sound system and leather seats compared to the Limited version.
Last, but not least, the 1794 version will be the top of the range choice that comes with unique paint finishes for the exterior as well as cream or brown interior leather choices. Pricing for this version starts at $59,385.
Whereas the base version is only available with the 3.4-liter twin-turbo V6, from the SR5 upwards you can also get a more powerful version of that engine. To be more precise, a 389 HP motor with 479 lb-ft of torque. There’s also a new 437 HP hybrid choice in the range, using the same V6 but with an electric motor hooked up alongside it. However, pricing for the hybrid versions hasn’t been announced just yet.
Dealerships should get the first 2022 Toyota Tundra models by the end of the year, with the hybrids being scheduled for delivery early next year.
