The 2022 Toyota tundra comes with everything new according to Toyota. It aims at providing a better driving experience than its predecessor, this is confirmed by its towing and interior upgrades that are so unique. The new Tundra will face off against other full-size pickups including the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado, and Ram 1500.
Dropping the rear leaf suspension significantly improves the 2022 Tundra’s ride quality while available self-leveling air springs and modern electronics up the pickup’s towing game. Two distinct tow modes and a new Trailer Backup Guide system with Straight Path Assist make sure our trailer tracks straight, and cruise control is effective in maintaining the truck and trailer’s speed on inclines and declines.

The truck comes in two different body styles which are Double Cab (with rear half doors) and CrewMax (with four full doors). Double Cab models can be fitted with a 6.5-foot bed or an 8.1-footbed, while CrewMax models offer a 5.5-foot bed or 6.5-footbed.
The 2022 Tundra also comes with various trim levels: SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794, and TRD Pro. The latter trim adds Fox shocks, giving the truck a 1.1-inch front lift. The TRD Pro also features a special front stabilizer bar, an aluminum front skid plate with extra underbody protection, and all-terrain Falken tires.
The all-new Tundra is capable of accommodating five people in both Double Cab and CrewMax models. The front seats are spacious and comfortable in both cab styles, and the rear seats provide plenty of headroom. Adults can ride in the back of either cab, but the CrewMax’s legroom is much more generous.
As standard on the truck is an 8.0-inch touchscreen which can be upgraded to a 14.0-inch touchscreen. No matter which screen size you choose, the new Toyota Audio Multimedia system should be easier to use. Its processing power is five times greater than the old system, and it gets pinch-and-zoom functionality and standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The navigation system is cloud-based and can be updated over the air.
Additionally, a 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster is available. When powering on the truck, Tundra animations activate on the display. Tundra offers three-bed lengths: 8-foot-1-inch, 6-foot-6-inch, and 5-foot-6-inch. Not all beds are available with all cab configurations. You can add features to improve bed utility, including in-bed lighting and an in-bed power outlet.
in-cabin storage comes standard, including compartments beneath and behind the rear seats. Hybrid models lose the under-seat compartments because that’s where the hybrid battery is located.
