Did Toyota Tundra Win The Title “Truck of Texas”?

December 6th, 2021 by

Yes, it’s true… Here at Silsbee Toyota, we know how great the new Toyota Tundra is—but we’re glad the Texas Auto Writers Association has figured it out too. TAWA has recently awarded the 2022 Toyota Tundra with the designation as the “Truck of Texas” after this year’s Texas Truck Rodeo outside of Austin. Let’s look more deeply into how the Tundra was able to pull ahead of the competition to claim the top title.

Tundra’s Impressive Capability

Thanks in part to its new fully-boxed chassis and new multilink rear suspension, the Tundra offers impressive capability: its tow rating maxes out at an impressive 12,000 pounds, and its maximum payload capacity is 1,940, plenty for anything you might throw in the bed.

In a power- and efficiency-boosting move, Toyota has equipped the new Tundra with two new powertrain options for 2022: the i-FORCE 3.5L twin-turbo V6 and available i-FORCE MAX 3.5L twin-turbo V6 hybrid. That i-FORCE MAX, even though it’s a hybrid, is able to produce up to 437 hp @ 5,200 rpm and an incredible 583 lb.-ft. or torque at a low 2,400 rpm, making it the strongest powertrain of the bunch.

Top-Tier Tundra Technology

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Toyota without great design and technology. That’s why the new Tundra has available Integrated Navigation, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, and even Amazon Alexa integration via the Toyota+Amazon Alexa app. Plus, the customizable 4.2-inch Multi-Information Display provides all the vital information you need on your drive, like the odometer, fuel economy, and Integrated Trailer Brake Controller monitoring screen. Everything you need is right there in front of you when you drive a Toyota Tundra.
