How We'd Spec It: 2022 Toyota Tundra from Base to Nearly $60,000

Image credit: Toyota
The new Toyota Tundra 2022 is getting the trucking world moving because it is so rarely revised that each new generation seems like a significant step forward. While many models such as the Hybrid and TRD Pro are still coming onto the market for the new third-generation truck, Toyota has released the configurator tool for trucks with the standard 3.4-liter V6 biturbo engine. Our editors selected from the various options for colors, bed sizes, cabin configurations and trim, and you will find that many of them focused on similar combinations of trim levels and packages.
Connor Hoffman's $ 58,862 Tundra Limited TRD Offroad
If I were to buy a 2022 Tundra I would get a TRD Pro, but it won't come along with the other iForce MAX hybrid powertrains until the spring. Impatient, I would go for the next best: a Limited model with the TRD Off-Road package, because hopefully this truck will spend most of its life on the trails. I would get it in the twin cabin configuration with a 5.5 foot bed and all wheel drive. I love that you can now get my favorite Toyota color, Lunar Rock, a former TRD Pro specific color, on non-TRD Pro trucks. The TRD off-road package costs an extra $ 3,085 and adds things including 20-inch TRD wheels on all-terrain tires and Bilstein dampers - things I would add anyway. Some other options I'd add are the all-weather floor liners ($ 169), the console safe ($ 359), the hard tonneau cover ($ 1,295), the rock rails ($ 270), and a black tailgate badge ($ 89 ) for a total of $ 58,862.
Austin Irwins $ 41,075 Tundra SR
I wanted to see how strange the cheapest new all-wheel drive tundra would look. Base SR starts at $ 38,075 with destination, but to keep the end cost near $ 40,000 you'll need to stick with the smaller double cab and 6.5-foot bed. The larger, more desirable CrewMax cabin with a shorter 5.5-foot bed costs an additional $ 2050; Although the DoubleCab with the longer 8.1-foot bed costs just $ 330 extra, the proportions of the tundra feel like a cabin with an attached bowling alley. I was willing to pay an extra $ 3,000 for all-wheel drive, an obvious must-see in Michigan, even as the maximum towable weight drops by nearly half a ton to 11,200 pounds. At no additional cost, I chose Midnight Black Metallic as this is the only color offered on this trim level to set you apart from the van at O'Reilly Auto Parts. I have also found that the $ 430 SR Tow package that is not included in the base price is not optional in the configurator, but appears necessary as it contains a trailer hitch and a trailer belt. At $ 41,075, my truck is better than the previous generation Tundra: it can pull more, has standard LED headlights and a larger 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, while keyless entry and push-button start to be kept. Even if the DoubleCab looks a bit silly, the non-hybrid 348-hp twin-turbo V-6 for base models sooner makes more torque than the beloved 5.7-liter V-8 from the old truck. I think there's something nice about that.
Greg Finks $ 59,525 Tundra Limited TRD Offroad
Want the most all-terrain Toyota Tundra 2022 without the gasoline-electric hybrid i-Force MAX powertrain? Then get a Tundra SR5 or Limited all-wheel drive and add the TRD off-road package. (The package is also available for Tundra SR5 and rear-wheel drive limited trucks, but what kind of Jabroni adds an "off-road" package to a two-wheel drive truck?) But I don't stop there. I'm adding a variety of additional options to my brown (or, in Toyota parlance, smoked mesquite) tundra crew cabin - uh. . .CrewMax - with the shorter 5.5-foot box. Heated leather steering wheel? Check. Panoramic sunroof? You know it. While I'm at it, I'll also tick the boxes for the Limited Premium Package (premium LED headlights and extra trailer technology to get the most out of this truck's 11,120 pound trailer load) and the Limited Power Package (wireless charging, an AC outlet for rear seat drivers as well as a second AC outlet that is mounted in the LED-lit bed. All in all, my Tundra Limited costs $ 59,525. It's certainly not cheap, but it's arguably the best way to grab a luxury-lined and Off-road variant of the purely gas-powered tundra.
Eric Stafford's $ 58,360 Tundra Limited TRD Offroad
It felt like the outgoing generation of the Tundra preceded the internet, which is what makes mixing and customizing the trims and options of the brand new 2022 model on Toyota's online configurator so refreshing. Since the TRD Pro with its raised chassis and the coveted Fox dampers is not yet available, I decided, like some of my colleagues, for the TRD Off-Road package. It's only offered on the SR5 and Limited, and I'd go for the latter as it comes with standard features like a 14.0-inch touchscreen and leather seats with heating and cooling. SR5 models offer some of these upgrades, but cannot be combined with the TRD Off-Road Kit. My Limited would have all-wheel drive, the larger CrewMax cab, and the longer 6.5-foot box. This configuration starts at $ 53,925. I think this truck with Army Green paintwork is really great, and the TRD off-road package for $ 4,435 comes with light interior upholstery and a panoramic sunroof. The 389 hp twin-turbo V-6 of the 2022 Tundra Limited lacks the sound of its predecessor's V-8, but at least Toyota's full-size pickup now - finally - feels contemporary.
