2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Gets All the Attention in Orange
The Tundra TRD Pro can only be had with Toyota's top-shelf powertrain, comprising a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 and a single electric motor between the engine and its 10-speed automatic transmission.
Its output of 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque makes this Tundra ever so spicier than the Ford F-150 Hybrid.
The hybrid system isn't designed for efficiency so much as it is for creating a diesel-like torque curve, and it feels every bit as strong as you'd think when tooling around town.
You can keep it in electric-only operation for small bits of time, but most throttle applications from a stop will get the gas engine to kick in pretty quickly.
The fake sound piped through the speakers gives it a more V8-like attitude, even if it's mostly smoke and mirrors.
The EPA rates this four-wheel-drive truck at just 18 mpg city and 20 mpg highway, numbers I find a little difficult to achieve.
Stick with a two-wheel-drive hybrid if you're really trying to stretch out those trips to the gas station.
Thankfully, this truck's 32.2-gallon gas
tank helps alleviate some range concerns.
This Tundra variant can tow 11,175 pounds, the most of any 4x4 CrewMax configuration, and it's bested only by 4x2 CrewMax models.
