The 2022 Toyota Tundra will be a capable, off-road-ready truck. Toyota’s TRD Off-Road package adds both off-road capability and aggressive style. the package is available on 2WD and 4WD version of the 2022 Tundra SR5 and 2022 Tundra Limited. Here are the features of each.

The TRD Off-Road package prepares the 2022 Tundra to take on the trails
Every single 2022 Tundra with the TRD Off-Road package is more ready for off-road adventure than its base-model counterparts. Even a 2WD Tundra with the Off-Road package gets all-terrain tires wrapped around alloy TRD rims. For the Tundra SR5, these rims are 18-inches. For the Tundra Limited they are 20-inches.
In addition, every 2WD and 4WD Tundra with the TRD Off-Road package wears skidplates and mudflaps to protect the vehicle’s underside. Finally, Toyota upgrades every TRD Off-Road equipped truck with a high-clearance off-road-ready suspension and Bilstein shocks.
That said, the TRD Off-Road package is at least a $1,440 option on the 2WD Tundra SR5. Upgrading the Tundra SR5 to 4WD only costs $950. Therefore, we don’t expect to see many 2WD TRD Off-Road Tundras around.
The 4WD 2022 Tundra boasts a part-time transfer case and a limited-slip differential. If you upgrade with both the 4WD and TRD Off-Road Package, Toyota adds several more performance features. One upgrade is the electronically locking rear differential. The other major feature is Toyota’s proprietary off-road driver aids: Multi-Terrain Select (MTS), Crawl Control (CRAWL), and Downhill Assist Control (DAC).
2022 Tundras with the TRD Off-Road package are distinct
The TRD Off-Road package upgrades the 2022 Tundra with several visual upgrades. Trucks with this package will be hard to miss: Toyota is decking them out with a TRD grille and “TRD OFF-ROAD” bedside decal.
Toyota will also upgrade the interiors of all TRD Off-Road Tundras. Interior features include aluminum sport pedals, a TRD engine start/stop buttion, a leather-wrapped shift lever, and a heated leather steering wheel.
If you spring for the TRD Off-Road “Premium” package, Toyota will even throw in top-trim seats. these upgraded seats are trimmed in SofTex and boast 8-way power-adjustment as well as 2-way power lumbar. This trim level also features dual-zone automatic climate control and color-keyed outer door handles.
The third-generation Toyota Tundra will be an off-road beast
Compared to the upcoming Tundra TRD Pro, the TRD Off-Road package is a relativeily inexpensive way to upgrade the 2022 Tundra. Every TRD Off-Road-equipped Tundra wears distinctive badges, trim, and rims. In addition, all TRD Off-Road Tundras benefit from taller, more capable upgraded suspension, aggressive tires, and skidplates.
That said, 4WD is a cheaper option than the TRD Off-Road package and will likely do more to improve a Tundra’s off-road performance. Tundra’s already equipped with 4WD, then upgraded with the TRD Off-Road package, enjoy a locking differential and suite of off-road driver aid software.
