Toyota announces pricing for all-new 2022 Tundra
Redesigned truck to go on sale December 2021
Toyota Canada has announced the sale and pricing of the newly-redesigned 2022 Tundra pickup.
We recently drove the new Tundra in Texas, and you can learn more about those impressions here . The new Tundra marks a radical shift in Toyota’s half-ton strategy, ditching the hulking V8 for V6 and optional hybrid power. In addition to its new style and powertrain, the new Tundra finally brings Toyota up to modern expectations with the new Toyota Multimedia System, which Driving Videographer Clayton Seams has called the best infotainment in any truck. Despite its controversial face, the new Tundra seems well-poised to continue its top-shelf contention.
Starting December 3rd, shoppers will be able to configure Tundras in their choice of 23 different model and trim configurations. Toyota has prepared a lot of attractive content upgrades across the new Tundra lineup, but like a frog in a pot, reasonable steps in price carry the Tundra from a $45,000 simmer to a nearly-$80k boil.
For those who just need ‘a truck,’ a starting MSRP of $44,990 gets you a rear-drive double-cab SR with 6.5′ bed, 18″ steel wheels, towing package, LED lighting, air conditioning, and smart key with push-button start. Those looking to haul lumber can bump up to an 8.1′ box for a further $500. The SR trim gains further capability as an available 4×4 model, coming in at $48,290 for a double-cab 6.5′ or $50,290 for larger crew cab with a 5.4′ bed.
Riding the range’s middle path is the classic 4×4 SR5 trim, which improves upon the SR’s feature set with heated power seats, 18″ alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, LED foglamps, and a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel. On the road, the SR5 also brings the advantages of a larger fuel tank, selectable drive modes, and hill-start assist. Double-cab pricing is structured at $51,990 for a 6.5′ bed or $52,490 for an 8.1′. Stretch out in the crew cab, and prices are $53,990 for a 5.5′ bed, or $54,350 for a 6.5′.
For playful drivers, the 4×4 TRD Sport comes with everything on the SR5, plus larger 20″ wheels, TRD grille, TRD sport shocks, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert & braking, parking assistance with automatic braking. This model comes as either a $54,090 double-cab 6.5′ or $56,090 crew 5.5′.
The same models are also available for $200 more in the 4×4 TRD Off Road trim, refining touch points with a leather-wrapped shift selector and heated leather steering-wheel. For the modest step in price, the Off Road augments the TRD Sport’s equipment with downhill assist, crawl control, multi-terrain select system, electrochromatic rear-view mirror, and a locking rear differential. Shoppers considering the TRD Sport should see this package as a no-brainer upgrade to the Tundra’s usability and resale value.
Requiring a bit more consideration is the 4×4 Limited, which arrives with starting MSRPs of $60,490 for a double-cab with 6.5’ bed, $62,490 for the crew cab with 5.5’, and $62,850 for the CrewMax with 6.5’ bed. These models equip the Limited trim with 20” wheels, a larger 14” centre display, Softex upholstery, upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, electrochromatic mirrors including power-folding sides, wireless phone charging, 400-watt bed outlet, and a panoramic roof. A further $3,000 on top of any of these models also equips the 4×4 Limited in TRD Off Road trim, complete with all of the feature content of the standard TRD Off Road, including a step back down to 18” wheels for more terrain-absorbing tire sidewall.
