Its formidable 3.5L twin-turbocharged i-FORCE V6 engine offers up to 479 lb-ft of torque while the sophisticated 10-speed automatic transmission brings precision and efficiency to the ring. The 2022 Tundra also offers a variety of smart towing technology tools that add adaptability and performance optimization. It’s this combination of clout and craft that makes the 2022 Tundra one of the most powerful pickup trucks on the market.  

Towing & Payload Capacity

With the right equipment and configurations, the 2022 Toyota Tundra can tow up to 12,000 lbs (5,440 kg). What do we mean by the right equipment and configurations? Simply that factors such as occupants, cargo, and the base curb weight of your Tundra can all affect the maximum towing capacity.

The maximum payload capacity of your vehicle is determined by subtracting your base curb weight from your GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating). The 2022 Tundra can carry a maximum of 1,940 lbs (880 kg) when properly outfitted. The Load Carrying Capacity label on your 2022 Tundra’s door jamb will be able to provide more detailed information about your truck’s payload capacity in accordance with your needs.

Towing Technology of the 2022 Tundra

Tow/Haul & Tow/Haul+ Mode

This standard feature allows you to get the most out of the 2022 Tundra’s powertrain by fine-tuning the throttle for moderate to heavy towing jobs. Turning the dial to Tow/Haul will optimize your towing efficiency with a dialed-in throttle response for lighter loads, while the Tow/Haul+ setting will increase the throttle for bigger jobs.

Trailer Reverse Guidance with Straight Path Assist

No need for a spotter when hitching or backing a trailer with this feature. The rear-mounted cameras will plot an adaptive trajectory with visual guidelines for seamless maneuvering. Additionally, automatic steering inputs will keep you on course with small adjustments here and there as you move in accordance with the plotted trajectory.

The 2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid

The hybrid engines’ bell-housing motor system enables more torque lower in the powerband for extra get-up-and-go, while the 3.5L twin turbo i-FORCE MAX V6 engine delivers more bang for your buck with 583 lb-ft of torque at just 2,400 RPM.
