October 17th, 2022 by

Toyota’s 2022 lineup has something for everyone. Sedans like the Toyota Camry and Avalon refine and deliver on the very style of sedan vehicles. Energy efficiency is at the forefront of pioneer models like the Prius, implementing innovative measures along the way. And the GR Supra is guaranteed to scratch that more sporty itch, with speed and performance that’s unmatched.

With those examples alone, it’s clear, Toyota has a lot to offer prospective car buyers. And if you are in the market for a brand new Toyota from the 2022 lineup, Mount Airy Toyota is the dealership for you. Offering a stacked lineup of models that continue to impress.

Still, even more impressive is the new breed of hybrid Toyota has unleashed in its 2022 lineup — The Toyota Tundra iForce. The Tundra iForce has succeeded in merging fuel efficiency and sustainability with high power and performance, and the result is an iForce that does what no other modern truck can.

But don’t take our word for it, let’s look at a breakdown of the Tundra iForce and learn what sets it apart.

Toyota’s Legacy of Hybrid Innovation

Only a few years ago, it seemed impossible that an electric truck could equal or be more powerful than traditionally powered trucks but today’s Toyota Tundra surpasses expectations.  Toyota has made investments in hybrid technology that has led to the creation of the Tundra iForce and made the impossible, possible.

This trailblazing of the hybrid world isn’t unknown to Toyota. The Toyota Prius was the world’s first mass-produced hybrid vehicle and revolutionized the entire automotive industry. For many, the innovation of hybridization was destined to stay with smaller vehicles. Though as the years progressed and the desire for hybrid vehicles grew, the questions centered on a hybrid truck only increased. Though just what that would look like was unclear.

Toyota was no stranger to building a vehicle that faced unknowns. Take for example the Prius’ introduction. Toyota set the framework for what consumers wanted in a hybrid passenger car — and now they’ve done the same with a high-performance hybrid truck.

Our customers are smart shoppers.  They know that they want, and they want electric options.  The demand for hybrid trucks is high because our customers know these hybrid vehicles are great money savers and, as always with the Toyota brand, they hold their value. The Tundra iForce stands apart, exceeding expectations, and claiming its place as a technological breakthrough and it’s ready to deliver for your family.

Powerful Design Features

The Tundra iForce reaches its unique level of power by utilizing an electric motor and V6 engine in tandem. This use of dual motors is what allows the Tundra to perform at such high levels, outpacing other trucks on the market and resulting in more power than a regular V8 engine. This setup is known as the i-FORCE MAX one-motor system and is certain to change the entire world of hybrids.

You can find the electric motor nestled between the traditional engine and transmission, a necessary placement to achieve the level of power Toyota engineers were seeking. The electric motor helps supplement the engine when required, and at certain times the motor will shoulder the whole power load, resulting in peak fuel efficiency. Most importantly, switching between the two engines is virtually unnoticeable to the driver, with the only result being a powerful and responsive driving experience.

The Tundra iForce puts its power to use, with 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque. It’s capable of hauling up to 1,665 pounds in its payload and can tow up to 11,450 pounds with confidence.

To summarize, the powertrain system present in the Tundra iForce is a shining example of a vehicle that refuses to trade outstanding power and torque for better fuel efficiency.

A Look On The Inside

The Tundra iForce doesn’t relegate its top qualities to the hybrid i-FORCE MAX, it also has a lot to offer drivers on the inside. Standard in every iForce, owners will find a system compatible with wireless apple or android play, an 8-inch audio touchscreen with a robust speaker system to boot, advanced backup camera technology, trailer sway control, and automatic climate control to keep you comfortable.

All of these features can be found in every Tundra iForce but aren’t exhaustive of every bell and whistle that’s standard, there are a few optional features that go above and beyond to improve an already impressive interior comfort suite.

Potential buyers will have these options to improve their interior; 14-inch multimedia audio touchscreen, wireless smartphone charging, multiple leather 10-way power adjustable seats, and 4-way power-adjustable lumbar support.

Regardless, if you decide to opt for a full suite of comfort features, or stick to those standards across the model, you’ll be guaranteed to find a comfortable truck that is as dedicated to impressing with its interior as it is with its next-generation power design.

Where To Buy the New iForce

The 2022 Toyota Tundra iForce hit dealerships in December of 2021, so the trail-blazing truck has been on the market for some time. Though buyers may have to wait before they can get their hands on this model. Vehicle chip shortages, a delay in global shipping, and a huge demand for the revolutionary truck have all caused an increase in wait times, placing the iForce on some buyers’ wishlists.

While it can’t be guaranteed, we recommend you reach out to a certified Toyota dealership and place an order on the Tundra iForce if it’s at the top of your list. You can expect some delay, but making the jump sooner, rather than later, will increase your chances of joining the Toyota brand ahead of the curve.

And when placing that order, any Toyota dealership may feel like a viable option, though there are some dealerships that stand out above the rest.
