Toyota has been getting everyone revved up for the unveiling of the next-generation Toyota Tundra for quite a while, and now, finally, the secret is out! The automaker has finally given us a good look at the new design and released information on what to expect from its powertrains and other features, and we here at Salinas Toyota are excited to see it in person. One of the major characteristics of any pickup truck is its towing and payload capacity for those who expect to use it for what it’s meant for—carrying hefty loads for work and for play. How much can the 2022 Toyota Tundra tow and haul? Read ahead for the details. 

2022 Toyota Tundra power and hauling specs 

The 2022 Toyota Tundra is a mighty beast with a standard V6 engine capable of 389 horsepower and 479 lb.-ft of torque. That, however, can be upgraded with the available i-FORCE MAX powertrain to boost the strength up to 437 horsepower and 583 lb.-ft of torque. That powertrain and its strong build allow for a maximum payload capacity of 1,940 pounds and a maximum towing capacity of up to 12,000 pounds when properly equipped.

Design and build specs 

The 2022 Tundra is built on a new chassis and has a new high-strength steel-ladder frame and a reconfigured multi-link rear suspension. The versatile truck bed is made of an aluminum-reinforced composite. You’ll also find a new double-wishbone front suspension as well as twin-tube shocks in the front and in the rear of every 2022 Tundra model. All of this is meant to enhance the driving experience and provide drivers with a smooth yet exciting drive regardless of the terrain.
