As more and more SUV customers are eyeing the viability of truck ownership, luxury can no longer take a back seat to functionality. The impressively crafted 2022 Tundra Capstone by Toyota has the ready-to-carry everything needed for a weekend out of the city, to tow almost everything from snowmobiles to trailers, as well as the appointments matching those of SUV’s designated to the luxury category.
Trucks are still a workhorse but who said a workhorse can’t be luxurious as well as capable. Building of the Adventure Chic of the Tundra 1794 the new Tundra Capstone grade provides a premium collection of features and upgrades for those looking more in a luxury truck experience.
The new flagship of the Tundra lineup seamlessly crafts together premium, plush, and power into an exceptionally loaded package. Starting with the largest wheels ever offered on Tundra thanks to the standard 22-inch chrome rims. At its ruggedly handsome front, Capstone’s unique grille features a color-keyed outer frame and a chrome inner mesh pattern complemented with subtle-yet-eye-catching chrome mirror caps, chrome “TUNDRA” tailgate inserts, and chrome trim accents.
Automatic running boards welcome everyone into the premium cabin experience that is no doubt highlighted by standard semi-aniline leather-trimmed seats. Not only are the seats luxury-grade, but they also tout stylish perforation and a Capstone-only black-and-white color combination. The center console and passenger-side dash are accented with authentic Dark American Walnut with an open-pore finish that highlights the wood grain. On the dash, the Walnut inlay surrounds a Capstone logo which illuminates when the doors are opened. Speaking of letting a little light in, a panoramic moonroof is standard on Tundra Capstone. To help provide an even quieter cabin, Capstone is the only Tundra grade to feature acoustic glass on the front doors for more exterior sound deadening.
