2022 Toyota Tundra MPG Test and Acceleration Test Reveal Impressive Numbers

For the 2022 model year, Toyota has reimagined its full-size pickup from the ground up. Andre Smirnov had the opportunity of driving a non-hybrid Tundra Limited CrewMax 4x4 over 150.5 miles (242.2 kilometers), tallying around 19.9 miles per gallon (11.8 liters per 100 kilometers) at the pump.

Toyota’s preliminary numbers for the 3.4-liter V6 with a couple of boosty snails come in the form of 20 mpg combined, 23 on the highway, and 18 in the city (11.7, 10.2, and 13 liters per 100 kilometers). The Fast Lane’s managing editor also reports 7.02 seconds from zero to 60 miles per hour (97 kilometers per hour) for the half-ton pickup, which is definitely marvelous because the Blue Oval’s F-150 PowerBoost takes 6.15 seconds.

Speaking of hybrid pickups, Andre has also tested a hybrid-powered Tundra TRD Pro to 60 miles per hour in 6.86 seconds. That’s not on par with the Ford, but nevertheless, we should remember that a TRD Pro features many off-road goodies that hinder straight-line performance. Only available with the i-Force Max powertrain that integrates an electric motor on the bell housing of the 10-speed automatic transmission, this grade is flexing FOX shock absorbers, a 1.1-inch front lift, and Falken Wilpeak all-terrain rubber boots.

Below it, customers are further offered the luxed-up 1794 Edition based on the Platinum, the well-appointed Limited, SR5, and work-truck SR trim level. When properly equipped for the job, Toyota claims 12,000 pounds (make that 5,443 kilograms) of maximum towing capacity. Payload maxes at 1,940 pounds (880 kilograms), which isn’t on par with the F-150 either.

Scheduled to arrive in dealership forecourts in late 2021 unless the semiconductor crunch says nope, the all-new Tundra is a tempting pickup in many respects. The front end, however, will keep lots of potential customers out of the showrooms because that’s way too much for a 3.4-liter V6 that’s described as a 3.5 although it displaces 3,444 cubic centimeters.
