I take two new 2022 Toyota Tundra trucks to get some real-world 0-60 MPH numbers and a 150-mile road trip MPG that is verified at the fuel pump. Here are the results.
I spent most of my time during the first drive event with a 2022 Tundra crew cab 4×4 Limited trim with a (non-hybrid) 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine. I took it on a trip north of San Antonio, Texas to see how it works as a highway cruiser and to see how quick it is.
I topped off the 32-gallon fuel tank and pointed the truck north. Most of this trip was spent on a 65 mph highway, but there was also some city driving, two full-throttle 0-60 MPH runs, and a bit of dirt road driving at an off-road park. I did NOT take the truck on an off-road trail during this road trip. I simply used it to commute to the off-road location and then back to San Antonio.
The non-hybrid 3.5-liter TT V6 is rated at 389 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. The engine makes its best power on premium fuel, but premium fuel is not a requirement. The engine requires a minimum of 87 octane. The V6 is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and a 3.31 rear axle ratio.
I did two 0-60 MPH acceleration runs at an elevation of around 1,500 feet above sea level. My best acceleration was 7.02 seconds, according to the SoloDL GPS device.
After 150 miles of driving, I verified the total fuel economy at 19.9 MPG at the pump. The 2022 Tundra 4×4 non-hybrid is officially estimated to get 17 MPG city / 22 MPG highway / 19 MPG combined.
The next day I ran a 0-60 MPH with a new 2022 Tundra TRD Pro that is equipped with a 3.5L TT Hybrid V6 that is rated at 437 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque. The TRD Pro has more optional equipment and more aggressive all-terrain tires. The best acceleration time was 6.86 seconds 0-60 MPH.
I did not get a chance to do a pump-verified fuel economy trip in the TRD Pro. Check out all the details in the video below.
