The 2022 Toyota Tundra Limited Is Kind of Blah
The 2022 Toyota Tundra Limited is just one of the trim levels available for the 2022 Toyota Tundra, and while it certainly offers the things you’d expect from one of Toyota’s most popular trucks, it isn’t doing anything new or revolutionary. Here’s what the 2022 Toyota Tundra Limited includes, and why Car and Driver says that it’s just kind of blah.
The 2022 Toyota Tundra Limited is a run-of-the-mill truck
The 2022 Toyota Tundra Limited is the third trim level of the popular Toyota pickup truck, but it doesn’t have the kind of appeal that some other pickup truck competitors have to offer. Car and Driver tested the 2022 Toyota Tundra Limited, and though it likes the truck overall, it wasn’t very impressed by what it has to offer. For one thing, it’s fuel economy isn’t quite what the EPA estimates it is. While the EPA estimate believes that the Tundra should get 22 mpg on the highway, Car and Driver found that it got only 19 mpg.
As far as towing goes, the Tundra can tow up to 11,120 pounds and haul up to 1,740 ounds. Car and Driver notes that these are solid figures but not class leading.” If you don’t need to tow often, or tow a lot, then this may be acceptable for your needs.
The Toyota Tundra is loud
In addition, the Tundra Limited takes 6.1 seconds to get to 60 mph; not bad, but not exactly record-breaking, either. However, Car and Driver says that the Tundra produces a pleasantly throaty—if synthesized—growl while surfing a 479-lb-ft wave of torque that peaks at just 2400 rpm.”
The Toyota Tundra is also pretty loud in general. Car and Driver recorded 76 decibels inside the cablin, which is pretty noisy. It also reaches 66-70 decibles in everyday driving, which isn’t crazy loud but it also isn’t exactly quiet. Compared to other pickup trucks in its class, the Tundra isn’t particularly standout.
How much does the Tundra cost?
The 2022 Toyota Tundra Limited price starts at $50,595. While that’s not exactly an entry-level price, it’s also pretty far from the Tundra Capstone, at $75,225. So what do you get for your money if you buy the Tundra Limited? For starters, you’ll get a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that can make 389 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque.
The 2022 Tundra Limited also comes with 20-inch wheels, simulated leather, and heated and ventilated front seats. It also has a 14-inch touchscreen, digital instrument panel, and a dual-zone automatic climate control, according to Edmunds. In addition, it has a power vertical-sliding rear window, a tailgate release button, and blind-spot monitor.
The 2022 Toyota Tundra Limited is a solid pickup truck but if you opt for the Limited trim line, you may wish you’d spent your money elsewhere. The base model Tundra offers a lot of the same things as the Limited without the extra expense. Yet if the Limited trim level offers features that you like, you might love the Tundra Limited.
