Just a few weeks ago Publisher Tim Esterdahl was pretty sure he wouldn’t get a Tundra this year. He announced he’d be buying a Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, and now he’s back with more news. The 2022 Toyota Tundra Limited won and here’s how he plans to outfit it.
Getting the order in now and hoping for delivery by December seems like a long shot with all the production delays we’ve seen recently, but Esterdahl is hopeful. He’s got his heart set on a Blueprint blue Limited edition with the TRD package. This will give him a few of the more premium features, such as 20-inch wheels, a TRD grille, Bilstein dampers, skid plates, mudguards, nicer seats and a TRD leather shifter. Esterdahl doesn’t have a firm price yet, but he is estimating the truck will come in around the $50k-$60k range, which is comparable to the F-150 he bought last year.
Because the 2022 Toyota Tundra hybrid with the i-Force Max 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 hybrid engine won’t be available before the first of the year, Esterdahl will be getting the gas version of the Tundra with the i-Force 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine. This means 389 horsepower, 479 pound-feet of torque and a 12,000-pound towing capacity.
Esterdahl showed disappointment when he talked about a few features he wishes the truck would have. These include tow hooks and a power on-board generator like he had in the F-150 PowerBoost.
