Of course, being a pickup, the job site is where it shines the brightest thanks to its next-level capability.

2022 Toyota Tundra capacities & capabilities

Powered by a 3.5-litre, twin-turbocharged i-FORCE V6 engine, the 2022 Tundra offers up no shortage of muscle when it comes to hauling and towing seriously heavy loads. While its 389 horsepower is nothing to sneeze at, it’s the 479 lb-ft of torque that give the Tundra its muscle in a variety of situations. And thanks to its advanced 10-speed automatic transmission, the 2022 Tundra can access that power with unparalleled efficiency.

What is the 2022 Tundra’s towing capacity?

When properly equipped, the 2022 Toyota Tundra offers a max towing capacity of 12,000 lbs, or 5,440 kg. It’s also important to note that max towing capacity can be impacted by a number of factors including the base curb weight of the vehicle, as well as any cargo or occupants inside the truck. If you need any clarification on exactly how much your 2022 Toyota Tundra can tow, simply speak to a member of our sales team to get a better understanding.

What is the 2022 Tundra’s payload capacity?

The max payload capacity of the 2022 Toyota Tundra is 1,940 lbs, or 880 kg. By calculating the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) less the curb weight of your Tundra, you will be able to determine its maximum payload capacity. To determine the maximum amount of cargo and passenger weight your truck can handle, you will find a label on the doorjamb of your Tundra indicating the Load Carrying Capacity.

What towing technology does the 2022 Tundra offer?

While there’s no shortage of smart technology to be found inside the 2022 Toyota Tundra, there are two features that help this pickup truck get the most out of its ample powertrain.

Tow/Haul mode

Tow/Haul mode is found standard on the 2022 Toyota Tundra, to help dial in throttle response for optimum towing efficiency. Lighter loads like utility trailers or small boats will benefit from the increased throttle response, while Tow/Haul+ provides an even more aggressive throttle response for when you’re hauling heavier items like RVs, box trailers, or larger boats—all at the turn of a dial!

Trailer Reverse Guidance with Straight Path Assist

This forward thinking, backward-looking technology makes hitching a trailer or backing it up easier than ever. Rear-mounted cameras with adaptive guidelines help you back your trailer in a straight line, while automatic steering inputs give you an additional nudge in the right direction.

What’s the towing capacity of the hybrid i-FORCE MAX engine?

While towing and payload capacity numbers have yet to be released for the hybrid 2022 Toyota Tundra expected later this year, the i-FORCE MAX hybrid engine does promise to boost the Tundra’s performance specs up from 389 horses to 437, as well as an over 100 lb increase in torque. This, along with the hybrid engines’ abilities to access more torque lower in the powerband, leads us to believe that the hybrid 2022 Tundra will offer even greater towing and payload capacities.
