Even Bigger, Even Better


This spring, the 2022 Tundra is getting a luxurious upgrade. The new Tundra Capstone grade provides the quality and durability of a full-sized truck, but with plush, premium touches that put it in the segment’s upper echelon. So, what makes it so special? Here are four reasons why we think customers will love the Tundra Capstone.

Loaded with Luxury

As the new halo grade of the Tundra line-up, the Capstone edition makes a bold first impression. The wheels are the largest ever offered on Tundra, with standard 22-inch chrome rims. At its ruggedly handsome front, Capstone’s unique grille features a color-keyed outer frame and a chrome inner mesh pattern complemented with subtle-yet-eye-catching chrome mirror caps, chrome “TUNDRA” tailgate inserts and chrome trim accents.

The plush vibes continue with the interior, highlighted by semi-aniline leather-trimmed seats. The center console and passenger-side dash are accented with authentic dark American Walnut trim with an open-pore finish that highlights the wood grain. On the dash, the Walnut inlay surrounds a Capstone logo which illuminates when the doors are opened.

Get Connected

Customers will enjoy a 14-inch multimedia touchscreen display, which comes standard on Capstone. The new Toyota Audio Multimedia system offers an improved user experience thanks to new sight, touch and voice activation. With Intelligent Assistant available through the Drive Connect trial, simple phrases like “Hey Toyota” awakens the system for voice-activated commands to search for directions, find Places of Interest (POI), adjust audio controls, change the cabin temperatures and more. Paid subscription required at expiration of trial period.

Plush, But Still Tough

The premium upgrades go beyond what meets the eye. Capstone is powered by the impressive new i-FORCE MAX hybrid powertrain that produces 437 horsepower and 583 lb.-ft. of torque. i-FORCE MAX relies on a twin-turbo V6 engine but features a unique motor generator within the bell housing between the engine and 10-speed automatic transmission designed to provide maximum performance and maximum efficiency.

Resting on a fully boxed, high-strength-steel frame, Capstone has a maximum towing capacity of 10,340 pounds. During towing applications, the hybrid system provides additional power and torque while, during city driving, it focuses on a quiet and efficient ride. For highway driving, responsive linear power delivery is the name of the game and off-highway exploration is further enhanced thanks to peak torque performance being achieved early in the RPM range.

Toyota Safety Sense

Capstone, like all Tundra grades, comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense 2.5, Toyota’s active safety system. It includes Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection that features multiple enhancements over the previous generation, including, not only detecting the vehicle ahead, but also a pedestrian in low light, a bicyclist in daytime, and an oncoming vehicle and/or a pedestrian at intersections when making a turn. At intersections, the system is designed to detect an oncoming vehicle or pedestrian when performing a left-hand turn and provide audio/visual alerts and automatic braking in certain conditions. Emergency steering assist is an additional function designed to detect a preceding pedestrian and stabilize the driver’s emergency evasive steering maneuvers, helping to prevent lane departure.
