Are you interested in a brand-new half-ton pickup truck? The next-generation 2022 Toyota Tundra features an updated style, a modern interior, more powerful engine options and innovative technology that promise to make it stand out from the automotive crowd – but it is not without peak competitors. The redesigned 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 promises to put up a fight in this 2022 Toyota Tundra vs 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 comparison created by Downeast Toyota – but ultimately falls short.
When it arrives in Fall 2021, the 2022 Toyota Tundra will be available in six trims – SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition and the trail-rated TRD Pro – with Double Cab and CrewMax Cab body styles. Bed length options for the Toyota Tundra include a 6.5-foot standard bed, an 8.1-foot long bed for work trucks and a 5.5-foot short bed that pairs with the CrewMax Cab. The Chevy Silverado 1500 adds a trail-rated Silverado ZR2 trim level to the lineup to compete with the Tundra TRD Pro in a diverse lineup.
