Can a full-size pickup have too much luxury?
The 2022 Toyota Tundra Capstone trim will offer a lot of additional amenities if you can stomach a limited menu of configurations. It is only available with the i-Force MAX twin-turbo V-6 hybrid powertrain, with 437 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque, and only in the CrewMax bodystyle with the 5.5-foot bed. A limited menu of colors includes Wind Chill Pearl, Magnetic Gray, Celestial Silver, Midnight Black, Supersonic Red, and Blueprint. Flashy 22-inch wheels are standard—the largest fitted to a Tundra ever, at least by the factory.
The Capstone distinguishes itself from lesser Tundras with a unique grille treatment with a body-colored grille frame. Chrome mirror caps echo the chrome treatment of the grille, and those 22-inch wheels have a striking multi-spoke design.
Inside, the semi-analine leather seat coverings feature a two-tone black-and-white scheme unique to this trim. Dark walnut open-pore trim is contrasted by the ambient lighting and light-up "CAPSTONE" emblem inside. A panoramic moonroof lets in natural ambient light during the day. Unlike other Tundras, the front door glass has sound-deadening properties for a quieter cabin experience. The cab rides on the hydraulic mounts to reduce cabin NVH, too.
Like the Tundra TRD Pro, which is also limited to the hybrid drivetrain arrangement, the Capstone is a late-availability trim. It'll show up this Spring. Pricing will be revealed closer to launch, but expect it to keep up with the Ford F-150 Platinum, Ram 1500 Limited, and Chevy Silverado High Country Joneses when it is.
