2022 Toyota Tundra Starts at $37,645

2022 Toyota Tundra Starts at $37,645

New Tundra can be a lot more expensive than 2021 model

  • Redesigned 2022 Toyota Tundra starts at $37,645.
  • Available in more bed length and cab configurations than last year.
  • The 2022 can be significantly more expensive than the 2021, but list of upgrades is extensive.

In terms of sales, the Ford F-150, Ram 1500, Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 absolutely dominate the full-size pickup segment. While Toyota's Tundra posts solid numbers, this ancient truck — last redesigned in 2007 — really doesn't have the hardware necessary to fight the American pickups on their home turf. However, the tides are poised to change next month, when the all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra starts appearing on dealer lots. With a coil-spring rear suspension, significantly restyled interior and twin-turbocharged V6 (plus a hybrid on the way), the Tundra is finally competitive with the big players in the segment. The improvements don't come cheap, though. Aside from the base SR model, the 2022 Tundra is significantly more expensive than last year's model. We'll select an example from each trim below to show you how much prices have changed since 2021.

Base SR model is only a little pricier for 2022

The 2022 Tundra starts off in the SR trim in a double-cab, rear-wheel-drive and 6.5-foot bed configuration. Including destination charges, the base price is $37,645.

Its features include:

  • LED headlights
  • Keyless entry and start
  • 8-inch touchscreen
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration (with wireless connectivity)
  • Adaptive cruise control

Going with the larger 8.1-foot bed bumps the price to $37,975 — a $1,925 increase over a 2021 Tundra in the same configuration. We think the 2022 Tundra's long list of additions compared to last year's model are well worth the extra spend. Selecting a 2022 Tundra SR with the crew cab and 5.5-foot bed rings in at $39,695, and adding four-wheel drive tacks on an eye-watering $3,000 to every price point.

At a glance, the SR lineup looks like this:

  • Tundra 4x2 SR double cab, 6.5-ft bed: $37,645
  • Tundra 4x2 SR double cab, 8.1-ft bed: $37,975 ($1,925 increase vs. 2021 model)
  • Tundra 4x2 SR crew cab, 5.5-ft bed: $39,695
  • Tundra 4x4 SR double cab, 6.5-ft bed: $40,645
  • Tundra 4x4 SR double cab, 8.1-ft bed: $40,975
  • Tundra 4x4 SR crew cab, 5.5-ft bed: $42,695

Prices start to climb for the SR5

While the SR is a good starting point if you want a basic work truck, the SR5 features both styling and practical upgrades. The SR5 also opens the door to a number of worthwhile option packages. SR5 features include:

  • Alloy wheels
  • Rear center armrest and cupholders
  • Adjustable tie-down cleats in the bed
  • Towing package with Class IV trailer hitch, trailer brake controller and four-/seven-pin trailer connector

Despite a modest list of enhancements over the SR, the SR5 is much more expensive. Prices for the SR5, including destination, are listed at:

  • Tundra 4x2 SR5 double cab, 6.5-ft bed: $42,450 ($5,040 increase vs. 2021 model)
  • Tundra 4x2 SR5 double cab, 8.1-ft bed: $43,760
  • Tundra 4x2 SR5 crew cab, 5.5-ft bed: $44,500
  • Tundra 4x4 SR5 double cab, 6.5-ft bed: $45,450
  • Tundra 4x2 SR5 crew cab, 6.5-ft bed: $45,810
  • Tundra 4x4 SR5 double cab, 8.1-ft bed: $46,760
  • Tundra 4x4 SR5 crew cab, 5.5-ft bed: $47,500
  • Tundra 4x4 SR5 crew cab, 6.5-ft bed: $48,810

Platinum ain't cheap, and neither is this trim

Since the more expensive 1794 Edition essentially just adds unique styling elements, the Platinum is the de facto leader in the lineup. It adds:

  • Power-adjustable steering wheel
  • Leather upholstery
  • Heated and ventilated rear seats
  • Premium JBL audio system
  • Panoramic sunroof
  • Household-style power outlets in the cabin and bed
  • Trailer backup guide system
  • 360-degree camera system

Prices for this loaded Tundra are as follows:

  • Tundra 4x2 Platinum crew cab, 5.5-ft. bed: $58,685

  • Tundra 4x4 Platinum crew cab, 5.5-ft. bed: $61,685 ($7,695 increase vs. 2021 model)
  • Tundra 4x4 Platinum crew cab, 6.5-ft bed: $62,015

The 1794 Edition is largely the same as the Platinum, with a few minor tweaks that are meant to invoke ranch styling. For one of these models, expect to pay:

  • Tundra 4x2 1794 Edition crew cab, 5.5-ft bed: $59,385
  • Tundra 4x2 1794 Edition crew cab, 6.5-ft bed: $59,715

  • Tundra 4x4 1794 Edition crew cab, 6.5-ft bed: $62,715

Don't forget about the TRD Pro

There's also an off-road-focused TRD Pro trim in the mix, but it's not listed here. That's because this trim level comes standard with the hybrid powertrain, and prices for the hybrid model have not been announced yet. Keep your eyes peeled for a future update.

Edmunds says

The 2022 Toyota Tundra is much more expensive than its 2021 counterpart, but the long list of improvements and added features throughout the lineup help justify the higher cost.
