Toyota Elevates The Tundra Pickup Truck With A New Flagship Trim Called The ‘Capstone’

The Tundra Capstone will come with the hybrid engine and in the CrewMax body style as standard

The 2022 Toyota Tundra came out a few months ago with an insane amount of changes.

But, the company brought in the new Tundra for the 2022 model year with a lot of changes on the outside, inside, and under the hood. Just when it looked like the hype behind the truck had gone down, Toyota decided to do something about it.

The automaker revealed a new flagship trim in the already crowded lineup called the ‘Capstone’. It will be the apex trim in Tundra’s portfolio and is expected to start at over $60,000. The top-grade will arrive in Spring this year.
