Toyota revealed the all-new 2022 Tundra pickup with a 60-second commercial during last night's Sunday Night Football broadcast.

Improvements and enhancements abound, including a new high-strength boxed, steel-ladder frame, aluminum-reinforced composite bed, and fully redesigned multi-link rear suspension. The new Tundra carries an impressive maximum towing capacity of up to 12,000 pounds and a max payload capacity of 1940 pounds.


“Our design goal from the beginning was to create the most powerful, rugged and sophisticated looking full-size pickup that will take Tundra to a whole new level,” said Kevin Hunter, President of Calty Design Research. “Because recreation and an outdoor lifestyle are at the core of Toyota truck identity, we set out to create a muscular, chiseled and athletic design that also looks like it could handle the toughest towing demands.”

Tundra will offer two different power plant configurations. A new, highly efficient twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine offers up to 389 horsepower and 479 lb-ft. of torque by itself. When paired with a bell-housing motor system called the i-FORCE MAX, the result is a combined performance output of 437 horsepower and 583 lb.-ft. of torque. Both configurations will be mated to a new 10-speed automatic Transmission.

A new interior will offer creature comforts for driver and passenger alike, including an available panoramic roof, heated and ventilated front seats, rear sunshade, heated steering wheel and more. A host of new tech features are found throughout Tundra as well, such as towing aids, off-road enhancements, and an all-new multimedia system featuring wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and over-the-air updates. Two different four-door layouts are available, as well as various bed lengths including a 5.5-foot bed, 6.5-foot bed and an 8.1-foot bed. The all-new Tundra will go on sale later this year.
