The 2022 Toyota Tundra Capstone is the newest trim level of the Toyota Tundra, and it’s taking the popular truck to a new luxury level. The Capstone is a step above the high-end Tundra Platinum, and it is so nice, you might forget that you aren’t in a private hired car. What makes the Capstone so nice, and how much will a 2022 Toyota Tundra Capstone cost you?
How much is the 2022 Toyota Tundra Capstone?
The 2022 Toyota Tundra Capstone price is expected to start in the low to mid-$70,000s, according to Edmunds. The official price should be released closer to the debut date for the 2022 Tundra Capstone. The Tundra Captone takes the previously most high-end Tundra to a new level. In fact, that’s how it came up with the Capstone price estimate – it figured that everything that the Capstone includes that the Platinum doesn’t adds up to about $7,000 including the hybrid powertrain. It even includes the Platinum’s options such as power-retractable running boards, rear air suspension, a 360-degree camera, and a 10-inch color head up display.
In addition, the 2022 Toyota Tundra Capstone has 22-inch wheels that are dark chrome, as is the Capstone’s grille. You’ll know the Capstone by its look as well as by the Capstone emblem glowing from the passenger-side dashboard. This will be especially helpful if you forget what kind of truck you’re driving at night. It should be a quiet ride, as Edmunds reports that the Tundra Capstone has acoustic glass.
The Capstone has loads of features
In addition to dark chrome wheels and grille, the 2022 Toyota Tundra Capstone comes with 10-way power-adjustable front seats and a two-tone white and black interior that’s accented with walnut wood-grain trim. The Capstone also comes with premium LED lights. In addition, there’s an available Adaptive Variable Suspension and Toyota’s Safety Sense, which is Toyota’s suite of safety features.
The Tundra can tow up to 12,000 pounds. The Capstone has a 5.5-ft short bed that’s reinforced with aluminum composite. There’s currently no information about the Tundra Capstone’s fuel economy.
The Tundra Capstone has a hybrid powertrain
Perhaps one of the most exciting aspects of the 2022 Toyota Tundra Capstone is its hybrid powertrain. It comes with a twin-turbocharged V6 engine and has an electric motor-generator. While the standard 2022 Tundra with a typical engine can put out 389 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, the hybrid Tundra Capstone makes that even more powerful. The 2022 Tundra Capstone produces up to 437 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque.
The 2022 Toyota Tundra Capstone is due to be released in the spring of 2022. Hopefully the price will be released soon so that those interested in buying the 2022 Tundra Capstone can be prepared. The 2022 Capstone will take the Tundra to a new level that truck lovers will flock to. Whether people will be willing to spend $70,000 or more on the truck remains to be seen, but with Ford truck prices rivaling and even exceeding that cost, it’s likely that the Tundra Capstone will be a huge hit.
