Well, they’ve announced pricing for the non-hybrid models, anyway. Apparently putting a value on positive and negative electrons takes a bit more time. Nevertheless, we now know precisely the amount that will be hoovered from your bank account to get into a new-for-’22 Tundra.
As you’d expect, it’s a jump from the old truck.
Kicking things off, and paying homage to our old Ace of Base series, is the entry-level SR trim. When fitted with the 3.5-liter, twin-turbo V6 engine and rear-wheel drive, it’ll cost $35,950 when spec’d with the Double Cab and 6.5-foot box. This is a $1,925 increase from the old truck. Upgrading to the 8.1-foot box will cost just $330 and should be considered unless you feel its proportions are too derpy. Or you have a small driveway. The most expensive two-wheel-drive, non-hybrid Tundra will be a snazzy 1794 Edition CrewMax with the 6.5-foot bed costing $58,020. The same configuration for 2021 models is listed today at $50,095 on Toyota’s consumer website. All these prices are sans destination and TruCoat.
If it’s four-wheel drive you seek, be prepared to shell out at least $38,950 for an SR Double Cab with the shorter box. That’s a $3,000 walk from the 4×2, for all of youse who failed basic math. A typical volume trim like the SR5 CrewMax with the 5.5-foot bed rings the bell at $45,805. The 4×4 range-topper is again a 1974 Edition trim, same as on the two-wheel-drive side of the ledger, again adding three grand to its sticker and winding up at $61,020. The ’21 version of this spec is listed at $53,145.
Various and sundry options packages can be layered on top of most trims, including the likes of a TRD Off-Road package which adds skid plates and a rear locker (and is different than the hybridized TRD Pro trim) and an assortment of Premium packages featuring creature comforts like wireless device charging. Don’t forget: The base SR has a detuned version of the non-hybrid 3.5L twin-turbo V6, giving up 41 horses and a not-inconsiderable 74 lb-ft of torque compared to the full-fat versions in the SR5 trims and beyond where it makes 389 horses and 479 units of twist.
While it’s not always an apples-to-apples comparison thanks to a myriad of differences, it is safe to say the new Tundra is marginally more expensive than an equivalent truck from Ram, Ford, or GM. The latter two also have Regular Cab options the Toyota lacks, so watch out for any loud dealer ads proclaiming their lot to have the cheapest truck in town.
