(By Tom Lohnes) – Do you want a 2022 Toyota Tundra? Is the near-$70,000 1794 edition not nice enough for you? Well, Toyota has a solution for that, and it’s aimed right at the Ford F-150 Limited.
Called the Capstone, this top-spec Tundra brings a standard hybrid powertrain, a lot of chrome, and a nicer interior to combat its luxury truck rivals. This iForce MAX hybrid powertrain consists of a 3.5L twin-turbocharged V6 plus a battery and a small electric motor to make a strong 437 horsepower and a second-best-in-class figure of 583 lb.-ft. First place still goes to the almighty Ram 1500 TRX. In terms of looks, the Capstone is blinged out, with standard 22” wheels, a chrome grille, chrome badging, and a very nice pearl white paint color. Inside, the nicest Tundra gets a 14-inch touchscreen, ambient lighting, a full digital gauge cluster, and the word “capstone” very nicely illuminated on the passenger side of the dashboard. Also, the seats get a new pattern of black and white leather, and a panoramic moonroof is now a standard feature.
The old top-spec Tundra 1794 edition will already run you nearly $70,000 fully loaded, so expect the capstone to be somewhere around there to start. Toyota claims these will be in stock at dealers this spring.
