The 2022 Toyota Tundra price is much more expensive than the Ram 1500 and the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, but there's a good reason why.

Several reports stated that its standard engine outperforms the standard engine of other trucks available in the market---which makes the price for the 2022 Toyota Tundra lineup a bit reasonable.

According to Auto Evolution, General Motors, Fiat Chrysler, as well as Ford Motors are selling cheaper half-ton pickups in the market. In terms of its price, the Ford F-150 starts at $29,290, while the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has a starting price of $29,300 as of writing. Meanwhile, the price of Ram 1500 starts at $32,795.

2022 Toyota Tundra Engine and Specs

For those who are curious to know more about the 2022 Toyota Tundra engine, Auto Evolution furthered that the i-Force Max is an optional parallel hybrid with an electric motor that does most of the work at lower speeds, which means that once the speed exceeds 18 miles per hour or 29 kilometers per hour, the engine runs continuously for optimum mid- and high-speed performance.

The electric motor, which is housed within the bell housing between the 3.4-liter V6 and 10-speed transmission, assists the internal combustion engine for a total system output of 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet (790 Nm). This only means that the 2022 Toyota Tundra owners with an added i-Force Max will experience more power as compared to the base model.

In terms of its specs, the 2022 Toyota Tundra is the first Toyota vehicle to feature the new Toyota Audio Multimedia software, which looks great on either the optional 14-inch (36-cm) touchscreen or the standard 8-inch (20-cm) display, per our previous report.
