How Fast is the 2022 Toyota Tundra?

 


The highly anticipated 2022 Toyota Tundra is finally here, and this third-generation model was most certainly worth the wait. 

Until now, the Tundra's design has been nearly unchanged since its 2007 introduction but for 2022, Toyota has completely overhauled the much-loved truck from the ground up. the newest model year includes a revamped interior and exterior, contemporary technology, and additional safety features, but perhaps the most notable is what's under the hood. 


How Fast is the 2022 Toyota Tundra?

Performance and Engine: 

 

When it comes to performance, the 2022 model year has undoubtedly taken it up a few notches.  Toyota will no longer offer a V-8 engine with the Tundra, but has introduced the all-new I-Force Twin Turbo V6 engine, and 10-speed automatic transmission. This engine comes in three different configurations, including a 348 horsepower option with 405 pounds per foot of torque available on the base SR trim, as well as the standard 389 horsepower option with 479 pounds per foot of torque. The hybrid version of the Tundra features an electric motor integrated into the transmission that boasts an impressive 437 horsepower with 583 pounds per foot of torque. Compared to the previous iterations of the Tundra's performance capabilities, the 2022 model year is arguably their best yet, and thanks to the newly added coil-spring rear suspension, you're all but guaranteed a smooth ride. 


Speed and Gas:


With the shiny new engine and transmission offerings, comes additional speed and towing performance. The 2022 Tundra has a formidable max tow rating of 12,000 pounds, with an estimated 20 MPG, compared to the 10,200 pounds and 17 MPG of 2021. The Tundra TRD Pro tops out at a speed of 106 mph, with an estimated 0-60 time of 6.38 - 6.88.
