The all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra i-FORCE MAX Hybrid goes on sale this Spring at Toyota Dealers across Canada.

As with the 23 Tundra models Toyota has already released for 2022, these new hybrid-powered beasts boast new capabilities, features, and fresh styling.

Engine and transmission

The 2022 Tundra i-FORCE MAX is built around a twin-turbo V6 paired with a motor/generator and clutch located within the bell housing. This inline motor/generator provides additional power that’s transferred efficiently via the transmission, while engine start-up, EV driving, electric assist, and energy regeneration are accomplished solely via the parallel hybrid components. Mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, this powertrain packs an impressive punch, producing 437 peak horsepower and up to 583 lb-ft of torque.

The i-FORCE MAX hybrid system leverages the electric motor’s instantaneous responsiveness, delivering grunt-worthy amounts of torque from a standing start. Engaging Tow/Haul Mode ensures ample torque for impressive acceleration, even as the new Tundra i-FORCE MAX walks away with up to 5,067 kg (11,170 lbs) on the hitch or up to 750 kg (1,654 lbs) in the bed.

In city traffic, the i-FORCE MAX system offers a quiet ride and improved efficiency while in low-speed EV mode. On the open road, the system delivers responsive and linear power for confident passing. And when the road ends, i-FORCE MAX enhances off-roading performance by hitting peak torque at just 2,400 RPM – putting more power under wheel at speeds where it’s actually useful.

Beyond the powertrain, Toyota engineers and designers have reworked the entire Tundra to improve capability and ride comfort compared to competitive pick-up truck offerings.

Safety features

As a Toyota, every Tundra i-FORCE MAX also features a comprehensive safety package. New this year, all 2022 Tundra models are now equipped with Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 – the latest iteration of Toyota’s bundle of active safety systems, designed to enhance driver awareness and control. TSS 2.5 includes:

  • Sway Warning System
  • Road Sign Assist
  • Lane Tracing Assist
  • Right/Left Turn Oncoming Pedestrian Detection/Braking
  • Left Turn Oncoming Vehicle Detection/Braking
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Cyclist Detection, Nighttime Pedestrian Detection, and Risk Avoidance Emergency Steering Assist
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Automatic High Beam

Additional safety features standard on all models include the Toyota Star Safety System, eight airbags, an anti-theft alarm system, the blind spot monitor system with rear cross traffic alert and braking, and the intuitive parking assist system with auto braking.
