Overview

What's New

Launched in 2021 to replace a venerable old model by the same name, Toyota’s hybrid-powered Tundra sees no significant changes for the 2023 model year. There are still five trims, two bed sizes, and two drive modes, with a single V6 hybrid engine offering an alternative to the gas-powered Tundra on sale separately.

Choosing Your Toyota Tundra

The Tundra Hybrid range starts at $55,810 (all prices include destination) for a Limited model with a 65-inch bed. At the other end of the scale, the AWD-only Capstone will set you back $77,040. Only $700 separates Platinum and 1794 Edition models, which (along with Limited) can be ordered with RWD or AWD, and a choice of 5.5-foot or 6.5-foot beds. TRD Pro and Capstone are AWD-only and can’t be ordered with the bigger bed.

Engine Choices

The Tundra Hybrid is powered by a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 gas engine and a 1.87 kWh battery. Collectively, they generate 437 horsepower and 583 lb-ft of torque, fed to the rear wheels or all four via a ten-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy stands at an EPA-estimated 19 miles per gallon city, 22 mpg highway, and 20 combined.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (City/Highway/Combined)
3.5 V6437 hp583 lb-ft19/22/20 mpg

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The five-seater Tundra Hybrid comes with a bed that’s either 5.5 or 6.5 feet in length, measuring 58.7 inches wide and just over 20 inches in height.

Safety Features

It’s pleasing to see Toyota’s Safety Sense 2.5 suite of driver aids fitted across the Tundra range. This brings radar that can maintain a set distance from vehicles in front, detect pedestrians and keep the vehicle centered in its lane. Other standard features include auto high beams and road sign assistance, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts, and eight airbags. Only TRD Pro gets premium LED headlights with matching daytime running lights, automatic leveling adjustment, or an electronically controlled locking rear diff.

Connectivity

For a truck, Tundra Hybrid models are impressively appointed. A 14-inch touchscreen dominates every dash, with smartphone compatibility baked in. Base Limited models receive a nine-speaker stereo, but every other trim sports a 12-speaker JBL Audio system. Limited is also the only trim without wireless device charging as standard, and the only one not to receive a 12.3-inch digital instrumentation binnacle.

Toyota Tundra Hybrid

2023 Toyota Tundra Hybrid Limited – MSRP From $55,810

The most affordable Tundra rides on 20-inch alloy wheels, with LED headlights and an aluminum-reinforced composite bed. Keyless entry and a push button start come as standard, while the heated and ventilated front seats are trimmed in SofTex and given eight-way power adjustment including two-way power lumbar. The driver faces a leather-trimmed steering wheel, with a power rear window behind them.

For $4,145, the TRD Off-Road Package brings a wealth of mechanical upgrades including 20-inch off-road wheels, Bilstein suspension, an off-road front skid plate, and aluminum sports pedals, alongside a power sunroof, 12-speaker JBL audio system, and a heated leather steering wheel.

2023 Toyota Tundra Hybrid Platinum – MSRP From $63,900

You’d have to be eagle-eyed to spot Platinum’s sequential turn signals and automatic headlight leveling adjustment. More obvious improvements are located inside the cabin, illuminated by a powered panoramic roof and power sunshade. Other unexpected luxuries on this second-from-cheapest model include a surround-view monitor system, wireless device charging, 10-way power adjustment for the leather front seats, and rear seats which are both heated and ventilated.

The $3,285 Advanced Package blends load-leveling air suspension and power running boards/bed step with heated power towing mirrors incorporating a panoramic view monitor, all bundled in with a 10-inch color head-up display.

2023 Toyota Tundra Hybrid 1794 Edition – MSRP From $64,600

Given the negligible price difference from Platinum models, it’s unsurprising that changes on 1794 models are mainly limited to machined-finish alloy wheels, and the use of American walnut wood in a cabin finished in either cream or brown.

Packages are the same as on Platinum.

2023 Toyota Tundra Hybrid TRD Pro – MSRP From $70,315

TRD Pro’s focus on go-anywhere ruggedness extends to a terrain mode selector with crawl control, plus an electronically controlled locking rear diff and off-road suspension with FOX shocks. Its wheels drop to 18 inches in size but are made by BBS, with a unique grille and LED light bar. However, TRD Pro loses out on a number of specs found lower down the range – 10-way power adjustment for the front seats, heating and ventilation in the rear, a surround-view monitor, and a sunroof are all notable by their absence.

There are no packages available on this trim.

2023 Toyota Tundra Hybrid Capstone – MSRP From $77,040

The features sacrificed on TRD Pro models are all reinstated in the Capstone guise. The only Tundra Hybrid equipped with adaptive variable air suspension, Capstone models also receive power running boards, and a step to the bed. Chrome trim wraps around the automatic headlights, matching the 22-inch dark chrome alloy wheels, while the interior receives a color head-up display and semi-aniline trim.

Other than spending $1,045 to receive adaptive variable suspension and load-leveling rear air suspension, there are no packages on Capstone models.

CarsDirect Tip

Given its generous standard specifications, we wouldn’t look beyond Platinum trim. It’s over $13,000 cheaper than Capstone, yet doesn’t feel significantly less luxurious, especially if you’re willing to add the optional Advanced Package.

A Hybrid, But Not Like The Prius. Toyota is known for its hybrid vehicles ever since it introduced the Prius in 1997. Back then, hybrids were some of the most high-tech vehicles on sale and, were quite clearly, well ahead of their time. Now, hybrids are normal, and nearly every automaker sells a hybrid model. Even the 2023 Toyota Tundra Hybrid is available with a hybrid powertrain, though it’s not like the Prius.

Unlike the Prius, the Tundra Hybrid’s powertrain isn’t meant for maximum fuel economy. Instead, it brings a serious performance upgrade over the base twin-turbo V6 engine. Improved fuel economy is just an added bonus. The Tundra Hybrid comes with a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine with an electric motor. Power is rated at 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque. These figures represent an increase of 48 hp and 104 lb-ft of torque over the standard twin-turbo V6 engine.

The extra power in the Tundra Hybrid makes the truck feel surprisingly quick in a straight line. The powertrain is also incredibly refined, as the way the electric motor brings additional power over the V6 feels effortless. The hybrid also brings gas-free driving at speeds below 18 mph. Despite coming with a V6 engine and an electric motor, the Tundra Hybrid sounds spectacular, almost like it’s packing an eight-cylinder engine, but most of that is just synthetic noise that’s being piped into the cabin. It’s loud, but it definitely sounds good.

The hybrid powertrain in the Tundra Hybrid helps the pickup get better fuel economy figures than the non-hybrid model. With rear-wheel drive, the Tundra Hybrid can get up to 22 mpg combined, while the regular Tundra is rated at 20 mpg combined. The Tundra Hybrid isn’t efficient as the Ford F-150 Hybrid (25 mpg combined), Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Diesel (26 mpg combined), or Ram 1500 Diesel (24 mpg combined), but it gets close.

Brimming With Tech. The first trim that’s available with the hybrid powertrain is the Limited, which comes well-equipped with some of Toyota’s latest tech features. While the standard Tundra makes do with an eight-inch touchscreen, the Tundra Hybrid starts things off with an enormous 14-inch central touchscreen. Additionally, the Tundra Hybrid trades the regular tundra’s 4.2-inch instrument cluster display for a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

Automakers have started to fit trucks with large screens, but the 14-inch unit is the largest one available in the class. The Silverado 1500 gets close with its 13.4-inch touchscreen, but the Tundra Hybrid’s screen is larger than the F-150’s 12-inch unit and the Ram 1500’s 12-inch screen.

Beyond the Tundra Hybrid’s large screens, the truck impresses with its standard features that include a “Hey, Toyota” virtual assistant, a Wi-Fi hot spot, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and a nine-speaker audio system. The best thing about the Tundra Hybrid’s tech features is that all of this equipment comes standard. The pickup is available with a 10-inch head-up display, a wireless charging pad, and a 14-speaker audio system.

Toyota Tundra Hybrid

Top Trims Feel Luxurious. With Toyota starting the Tundra Hybrid off at the Limited trim, the electrified truck doesn’t feel like a work-oriented pickup. The Limited comes with synthetic leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, 20-inch wheels, and dual-zone automatic climate control. Step up to the Capstone and things get really luxurious with 22-inch wheels, power-deploying running boards, sound-reducing front windows, leather upholstery, and a panoramic sunroof.

In addition to coming with premium materials and upscale convenience features, the Tundra Hybrid has a roomy cabin. The available CrewMax body style brings a cabin that’s as roomy as a midsize SUV with 38.5 inches of rear headroom, 41.6 inches of rear legroom, and 60.5 inches of rear hip room.

Still Trails Rivals. Toyota’s designers decided to give the Tundra Hybrid a bold design. The pickup truck’s front end is polarizing to say the least, with an enormous grille that takes up 90% of the space on the front end. It’s a confident design that helps the Tundra stand out, but it could turn some buyers away.

The Tundra has always trailed rivals like the F-150, Silverado 1500, and Ram 1500 when it comes to towing capacity and it’s a similar situation with the Tundra Hybrid. The electrified pickup can tow up to 11,450 pounds and has a maximum payload capacity of 1,680 pounds. The F-150 Hybrid offers up to 12,700 pounds of towing capacity. Nearly every other full-size pickup truck in the segment offers more towing capacity than the Tundra Hybrid.

The off-road-ready TRD Pro is only available with the hybrid engine. With 18-inch TRD wheels, 33-inch tires, heavy-duty skid plates, a 1.1-inch front suspension lift, Fox suspension dampers, a locking rear differential, and Crawl Control, the TRD Pro is the most capable Tundra available. Against competitors like the F-150 Raptor, Ram 1500 TRX, and Silverado 1500 ZR2, the TRD Pro isn’t nearly as capable off-road and doesn’t offer the same level of performance.

Final Thoughts. The 2023 Toyota Tundra Hybrid isn’t cheap and its hybrid powertrain doesn’t bring remarkable fuel economy figures. Plus, it doesn’t offer the same towing or payload capacities as rivals, while the rugged RD Pro trim isn’t as capable as other pickups in the class. What the Tundra Hybrid does offer is a punchy V6 powertrain, a premium interior, high-tech features, and a refined ride. The hybrid powertrain may be a pricey upgrade, but it results in the best Tundra.

The only other full-size hybrid in the class is the Ford F-150 Hybrid. It has a hybrid powertrain that makes up to 430 hp and 570 lb-ft of torque, can tow more cargo than the Tundra Hybrid, can act as a generator, and is more efficient than the Toyota.

The Ram 1500 isn’t available with a full hybrid powertrain yet, but it’s available with mild-hybrid powertrains. The 1500 stands out for its high-end interior, comfortable ride, and upscale styling. The Ram 1500 TRX is incredibly capable off-road and comes with an insanely powerful supercharged V8 engine.
