Toyota is coming out swinging once again with their flagship truck, the new 2022 Toyota Tundra Capstone is about to happen. This full-size truck is gargantuan and many would put a label of a working horse on it.

Numerous tweaks were happening to update the previous version so the specifications and performance were enhanced. Toyota is of course competing against the Big Blue Oval and Ram.

There is a huge 14-inch infotainment system on the panel. This controls everything connected to a battery. Everyone can join in on the fun since the screen is quite big. There are some buttons on the steering wheel so the driver doesn’t have to take his sight off the road. This greatly improves the safety aspect of the truck.

This is more than enough to move the big Tundra around and tow and maximum capacity. It has a twin-turbo V6 engine with a generator to give more power to the electric part of the hybrid system. This powertrain comes paired with a 10-speed automatic as standard.
It can tow around 10.340 pounds without any issues. The hybrid system can kick in during towing time and aim for efficiency in the city or performance on the open road. You can haul around 1.500 pounds in the back of a Tundra.
