If you've asked around or checked the internet for a vehicle that's super rugged, extremely reliable, and has a capable powertrain, the name "Toyota Tundra” undoubtedly comes to mind.  Unfortunately, luxury was never part of its name, that is until the brand-new 2022 Toyota Tundra Capstone came into the picture.

The 2022 Toyota Tundra Capstone has become the flagship of the entire Tundra lineup, boasting an interior that rivals even Lexus, which, funnily enough, is also owned by Toyota. But of course, with the power of a pickup truck, anyone looking for a truck that offers amazing luxury features should definitely check out this vehicle.

That said before you go out and shell your bank for the 2022 Toyota Tundra Capstone, here are some things you need to know before buying it:

1. Feels Great on the Highway

The Tundra Capstone has a 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 engine combined with a 36 kW electric motor. These two together create an output of approximately 580 lb-ft of torque and 430 hp. Transmission-wise, these are done with an automatic 10-speed transmission that sends power to a 4-wheel drivetrain and is paired with locking rear differentials.

All in all, these numbers simply mean one thing: an amazing driving experience. When it comes to towing trailers, the truck feels powerful and is easy to control.

2. Offers Decent Fuel Efficiency

While the Tundra Capstone doesn't boast the best fuel efficiency of its class, it is still generally quite good, especially knowing the car weighs around 6,000 lbs. In the city, you can expect around 14 litres per 100km, while on the highway, you can get around 10 litres. Combined, you get an average of approximately 12 L/100km wherever you go, and knowing that the fuel tank holds up to 32.2 gallons of fuel, you can do anywhere from 600 to 700 miles on a full tank!

3. Boasts a Beautiful Design

If you've always loved the looks of large, strong, even aggressive-looking vehicles, you'll definitely love the Tundra Capstone's design. You’ll first notice the stunning LED headlights and the LED DRLs, along with the sequential LED indicators. Of course, the next thing you'll be drawn to is the large front grill, looking as if it is sucking in tons of air to power its engines. Really, there aren't many trucks that give off a presence much as formidable as the Tundra Capstone. 

To add to all of that, it also comes with 22" alloy wheels, coloured side claddings, and tall ground clearance with large wheelbase standouts. All in all, these things and more combined give the Tundra Capstone a tall, bold look that many find to be amazingly attractive in pickup trucks.

Conclusion

By now, you can tell that the 2022 Toyota Tundra Capstone is a vehicle you cannot overlook.
