We put over 5,200 hard miles on our new 2022 Toyota Tundra in about two months. The Toyota owner’s manual says to change the engine oil and do the first maintenance if the truck is driven 5,000 miles or more within the first six months. Let’s find out how this new 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine is holding up after some hard use. It looks like this is one of the first engine oil analysis reports for the all-new 2022 Tundra.

TFLtruck was one of the first owners of this new Tundra in the country. I picked it up in early December 2021 in Houston, Texas, and drove it over 1,000 miles to Colorado. We used the truck to tow trailers, including on the Ike Gauntlet™ – the world’s toughest towing test. We took the truck on several off-road trail runs and used it in a tug-of-war at our new Tumbleweed Ranch. We also took on a cross-country road trip. We delivered a Honda Trail from Colorado to Honda in California (also about 1,000 miles). Next, we picked up a BlackSeries HQ19 all-terrain luxury trailer (that weighs 7,000 lbs) and towed it 1,000 miles back to Colorado.
The truck has been returning about 19 MPG on the highway (at interstate speeds of around 75 MPH) when running with light loads and no trailer. The fuel economy goes down by about half when towing trailers. In general, the truck has given us no mechanical problems so far.
Here is the engine oil analysis report.
