Toyota has announced its highly-anticipated 2022 Tundra Capstone vehicle, updating the Tundra line from its 2008 predecessor with a robust, luxury cabin experience and impressive twin-turbo V6 engine.
In tandem with GMC‘s Sierra lineup and Dodge‘s RAM 1500, Toyota’s full-sized pickup truck is now equipped with an i-FORCE MAX hybrid powertrain, producing 437 horsepower and 583 lb-ft of torque, backed by an impressive twin-turbo V6 engine and a towing capacity of 10,340 pounds. The grille of the truck boasts a rugged color-keyed outer frame with sleek 22-inch chrome rims—the largest wheels seen on the Tundra vehicle lineup thus far. The brawny exterior encapsulates a rugged handsomeness, but passengers will enjoy a silent cabin courtesy of sound-canceling acoustic glass paneling on the doors.
The luxury interior cabin is equally impressive, featuring elevated, fine-tuned accents: a center console and passenger side-dash with elegant open-pore walnut wood detailing, a leather-trimmed heated steering wheel, luxury-grade leather seats, and a large 12.3-inch digital Multi-Dimensional Display screen that incorporates Toyota’s Safety Sense 2.5 technology. The panoramic moonroof is a nifty update, offering a premium cabin experience for sun-kissed days.
Equipped with Intelligent Assistant for on-command phrases like “Hey Toyota,” passengers can easily activate directions and alter audio and cabin amenities without lifting a single finger. The Toyota Audio Multimedia experience includes 4G connectivity through a WiFi subscription service accommodating up to five devices.
Housing an impressive onset of intelligent safety features, the Tundra Capstone offers a Pre-Collision System and Pedestrian Detection, along with a Lane Departure Alert that ensures vehicle stabilization when merging into traffic. Drive Mode Select allows drivers to customize their journey through various cruise settings like Comfort, Sport S, Sport S+, and Custom.
Toyota ushers in a new standard for decked-out pickup trucks, marking a revival of robust, design-focused innovation to its Tundra vehicle lineup.
