The new Toyota Tundra Capstone made its official debut this week, arriving as a high-end, ultra-luxurious variant of the long-running Japanese pickup.
The Toyota Tundra Capstone seems to be a direct response to the GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate, incorporating similar cosmetic equipment such as standard 22-inch chrome rims, a large chrome grille and chrome trim accents.
Inside, this high-end truck features Capstone exclusive white and black leather upholstery, open-pore walnut wood trim and a standard panoramic moonroof. A 14-inch infotainment display is also standard and is joined by a standard 10-inch color head up display and a 12.3-inch digital instrument display. Entryway into the cabin is helped by a set of standard automatic running boards, while acoustic side window glass helps ensure this luxury truck feels more refined than lesser Tundra trim levels.
Power in the Toyota Tundra Capstone comes from a hybrid powertrain consisting of a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine and small electric motor and battery, which together produce 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque. The electric motor is located within the bell housing of the standard 10-speed automatic transmission. Toyota says the truck has a maximum towing capacity of 10,340 pounds and a max payload of 1,485 pounds. A drive mode select system also comes standard with Normal and Sport settings, however more modes are offered if the optional load-levelling air suspension and adaptive variable suspension are equipped, including e Comfort, Sport S, Sport S+ and Custom.
Lastly, the Tundra Capstone comes equipped with the Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 suite of active safety features, which includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, emergency steering assist, dynamic radar cruise control, lane tracing assist, rear cross traffic alert and automatic high beams, among more.
Pricing for the Toyota Tundra Capstone has not yet been announced, however we expect it to occupy a similar price point as the 2022 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate, which is priced from $80,395.
