2023 Toyota Tundra Hybrid Release Date
The Toyota Tundra Hybrid was already announced in May and will be available for sale at dealers soon.
This truck offers the considerable advantages of the redesigned Toyota Tundra with the significant benefits of a hybrid.
2023 Toyota Tundra Hybrid
The 2023 Toyota Tundra is priced from $54,015 to $74,245, which is in line with other hybrid trucks on the market. The price will vary based on the model and configuration.
There are five grades and 14 configurations with many available options, such as 4WD, a larger bed size, or a digital instrument panel, among others.
2023 Toyota Tundra Specs
The Toyota Tundra Hybrid has an i-ForceMax Twin turbo V6 hybrid engine with an electric motor and is capable of producing 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque. It also comes with a 10-speed transmission.
The truck is capable of going from 0-60 in 5.7 seconds which is actually quite impressive. However, its fuel economy at 20/24 mpg city/highway is not as good as some of its competitors, such as the Ford F-150 Lightning, which gets 22/32 mpg city/highway.
The Tundra Hybrid will have a towing capacity of 10,340 to 11,450 lbs., which is a bit lower than some other comparable full-size trucks, such as the Ford F-150 lighting. Yet, it is comparable to others, such as the Rivian R1T, which has a towing capacity of 11,000 lbs.
It has a payload capacity of 1,485 to 1,680 lbs which is not as much as some other hybrid trucks, such as the Rivian R1T at 1,760.
The Tundra also comes with a new suspension system which will make riding in it more comfortable. The new system consists of a multi-link suspension with coil rings.
The TRD Pro variant also has higher ground clearance, an anti-roll bar, and a front skid plate. This should make it a great choice for off-road enthusiasts.
2023 Toyota Tundra Design
The 2023 Toyota Tundra Hybrid is based on the 2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid, which was a big change over the 2021 model. The exterior barely looked like the same truck, and the interior was much different as well.
The exterior of the Tundra Hybrid looks great. The truck has a sturdy appearance with a large grille that takes up most of the front of the truck. It also has a large hood, angular LED headlights, and a large bumper.
Additionally, it features new sides with more stylish wheel arches, two-tone alloy wheels, and newly styled doors.
The interior of the Toyota Tundra really stands out. Toyota certainly made the interior with comfort in mind.
It has wide, leather-trimmed, heated, and ventilated seats along with a heated steering wheel. There is also a rear sunshade and a one-touch panoramic roof.
The center console is integrated into the dashboard, and it has physical controls for volume and climate control.
The interior also has a nice multimedia infotainment system that has wireless Android compatibility and Apple CarPlay along with other apps.
There is also a phone holder that includes a wireless charger. This means there is no need to worry about where to plug in a phone.
The higher trims have a digital instrument cluster. But, for the lower trims, there are semi-analog controls.
Another feature many people will appreciate is the 360-degree camera system. This makes it a lot easier to park a large truck.
All trim levels of the Toyota Tundra Hybrid come with the Toyota Safety Sense 2.5. This is an impressive safety system.
It includes lane departure warning with steering assist, vehicle stability control, pre-collision with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking assist with automatic braking, along with many more safety features.
