The 2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid is the first electrified version of the full-size pickup and it’s going to cost you a bit to get into one. Available on the Limited, Platinum, and 1794 Edition and standard on the TRD Pro, and Capstone trims, this is the most powerful Tundra in the lineup. A rear-drive Tundra Limited is the least expensive way to get the electrified powertrain at $53,995. Getting 4WD will cost you $56,995 or $3,000 more than the RWD variant. Opting for the 6.5-foot bed on the Limited will cost you $54,325 for the RWD truck or $57,325 on a 4WD example, a $330 increase over a similar truck with the standard 5.5-foot bed.
From there, the 2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid gets more luxurious with the Platinum trim. That version starts at $62,085 for the RWD version and $65,085 if you get 4WD. The longer bed option starts at $62,415 for RWD trucks or $65,415 for a 4WD-equipped one. If you’re looking for a luxury version with an interior sporting more natural colors, the 1794 Edition is priced from $62,785 for a rear-drive truck and $65,785 with 4WD. Opting for the 6.5-foot bed increases the price to $63,115 for the rear-drive model and $66,115 if you opt for a 4WD one.
The most capable version is the Tundra TRD Pro, which gets the i-Force Max hybrid powertrain as standard. In addition to 4WD standard, it gets a bunch of off-road-oriented goodies like an electronically-controlled locking rear differential, CRAWL Control, the Multi-Terrain Select system, Fox shocks, all-terrain tires, a TRD front skid plate, a 1.1-inch suspension lift, and TRD anti-roll bars. This variant will cost you $68,500 before any options are added.
If you’re looking for the most premium of all Tundra models, the Capstone is the one to look at. Like the TRD Pro, it comes exclusively with the hybrid powertrain. Unique features include power running boards, 22-inch wheels, American Walnut interior trim, acoustic glass on the front windows, Adaptive Variable Suspension with self-leveling rear air suspension, and an illuminated Capstone logo embedded on the dash. This version will set you back $75,225, making it the most expensive Tundra to date.
The Tundra Hybrid is the first electrified full-size pickup from Toyota. It couples a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 with an electric motor, a nickel-metal-hydride battery, and a 10-speed automatic transmission. In total, the powertrain makes 437 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque. Toyota estimates that the i-Force Max trucks will be rated at 20/24/22 mpg city/highway/combined for the RWD variants. Opting for 4WD drops those numbers down to 19/22/21 mpg on the Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition, and Capstone trims, The off-road-oriented Tundra TRD Pro will be the least efficient at 19/21/20 mpg. After the Tundra, the i-Force Max hybrid system will be used in the mechanically similar 2023 Toyota Sequoia, which will get it as standard.
Although the 2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid’s fuel economy estimates are better than most internal combustion-only competitors, its chief rival, the Ford F-150 Hybrid still gets higher efficiency ratings. The RWD F-150 Hybrid is EPA-rated at 25 mpg across the board while the 4WD version checks in at 23 mpg on all cycles. It uses a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 coupled to a 35-kW electric motor, a 10-speed automatic, and a 1.5-kWh lithium-ion battery. At 430 hp and 570 lb-ft, the F-150 Hybrid’s combined output is similar to the Tundra Hybrid. Dealers will start receiving the electrified Toyota Tundra this spring.
