Ford, Ram, Chevrolet, and GMC all offer upscale versions of their full-size pickup trucks, and Toyota has decided to enter the fray with the 2022 Tundra Capstone. Pricing for the upscale Tundra starts at $75,225 (including destination), which represents a price difference of $37,580 from the base SR. Clearly, luxury doesn’t come cheap in the full-size truck segment.

The Capstone is only available with the CrewMax configuration, a five-foot-five-inch bed, and the I-Force Max hybrid powertrain. On other trims where the I-Force Max hybrid powertrain is available, it’s a $3,400 option. The hybrid powertrain consists of a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine and an electric motor for 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque. Those are upgrades of 48 hp and 109 lb-ft of torque over the base twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6.

On the outside, the Capstone features 22-inch wheels, tons of chrome trim, a color-matched grille, chrome badges, automatic running boards, and a beside step. If you’re curious about just how much chrome Toyota included with the Tundra, even the “TUNDRA” script on the tailgate is embellished in chrome.

Passengers on the inside will find that the Capstone comes with every one of the Tundra's available features. The trim comes with a 14-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 10-inch head-up display, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and a JBL audio system. Toyota has fitted the Capstone with a black and white color scheme with walnut trim. An illuminated Capstone logo is integrated into the dashboard on the passenger’s side, while ambient interior lighting is also included. The Capstone is the only Tundra in the lineup to come with acoustic glass for a quieter cabin and a massive panoramic sunroof is included as standard.

When Toyota announced the Capstone, we were expecting pricing to start at around the $60,000 mark. This is well more than expected, but it’s still more affordable than other high-end full-size trucks in the class. The Ford F-150 Limited costs $76,030, Ram 1500 Limited is priced at $62,390, GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate starts at $80,395 (without destination), and Chevrolet Silverado High Country costs $56,345. We’ll have to wait and get our hands on the 2022 Toyota Tundra Capstone to see if it’s worth the extra cost and a real competitor to other luxury trucks, but Toyota’s priced it accordingly to the segment and it does come well-equipped.
