2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid Review: Enter Player Four

by Aiden Eksteen

American automakers have a firm hold over the ever-popular half-ton pickup truck market, but with the 2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid, Toyota has thrown down the gauntlet against its main competition from the Ford F-150 hybrid. Like the Blue Oval's contender, the Japanese truck comes with a V6 hybrid engine, but Toyota's i-Force Max unit is most powerful, with outputs of 437 horsepower and 583 lb-ft of torque. It can be had in 4x2 or 4x4 configuration with the latter making adverse terrain a fuss-free affair. A ten-speed automatic does duty across the range and all models have Tow/Haul mode allowing a maximum towing capacity of around 11,450 pounds. Despite being less powerful, the Ford rival manages more in terms of hauling and offers slightly better gas mileage figures, so what exactly is the allure for bringing buyers to the Tundra Hybrid? The 2022 Tundra Hybrid's spacious cabin and long list of tech may be good drawcards, but is it enough to sway buyers from the Blue Oval's offering?

2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid: 🚙What's New?

Toyota introduces the all-new Tundra Hybrid to the US market as part of the Tundra's complete redesign for 2022. Toyota hasn't enhanced or altered the Tundra in any significant manner since its debut in 2007 and has now finally decided to try to elevate its status alongside America's most popular half-ton trucks, such as the Ford F-150, Ram 1500, and Chevrolet Silverado 1500.

While the hybrid engine is new to the line, the Tundra itself boasts a new steel-ladder frame, aluminum-reinforced composite bed, and brand-new multi-link rear suspension.

Verdict: 🏁Is 2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid a good Truck?

The 2022 Toyota Tundra is still one of the only full-size pickup trucks not offered with a V8 engine - the entire line still comes standard with a V6 engine, augmented by hybrid power in this application. With 437 horsepower and 583 lb-ft of torque, the twin-turbocharged V6 hybrid engine in the Tundra Hybrid is impressive enough though, availing the Tundra Hybrid with a 5.7-second 0 to 60 mph acceleration time. As an all-new addition to the Tundra line, the Tundra Hybrid comes with all the enhancements of the completely redesigned truck, including an overhauled frame and a new coil spring multi-link rear suspension kit. This new design construction, along with all of the other contemporary underpinnings the Tundra Hybrid comes with, results in a pleasant and surprisingly refined driving experience and makes it rather capable, too. Though commendable, the Tundra Hybrid still can't haul or tow quite as much as its ever-popular contemporaries, the Ford F-150 claiming a leading 14,000-pound towing capacity over the Tundra's 11,450-lbs, which is slightly below-average overall. While the hybrid Tundra offers a unique proposition in the Toyota lineup, unless you're trying to soothe your conscience by opting for a hybrid, even diesel-powered Silverado 1500s are more fuel-efficient.

🚘What's the Price of the 2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid?

Pricing throughout the 2022 Toyota Tundra line fluctuates depending on the cab and bed length configurations as well as with which drivetrain is opted in. With the CrewMax cab, 5.5-foot bed, and 4x2 drivetrain, the Limited is put forward at an MSRP of $52,300, the Platinum at an MSRP of $60,390, and the 1794 Edition at an MSRP of $61,090. Configuring the Tundra with the 4x4 drivetrain will cost an additional $3,000, while opting for the 6.5-foot bed will add an extra $330. Prices for the 2022 Tundra Hybrid all exclude Toyota's $1,695 processing, destination, and handling charge and don't include any tax, registration, and licensing fees.
