It's here. Toyota has just unveiled the all-new 2022 Tundra full-size pickup, and it's a big deal; the new third-generation is Toyota's first complete overhaul of the truck since the second generation went into production in late 2006. It's a revolutionary redesign that should put the Tundra — always a hallmark of build quality, reliability and off-road capability — on better footing to compete with standouts like the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500.

Here's what you need to know about the new 2022 Tundra.

The Toyota Tundra has two turbo V6 engines, and one's a hybrid

Toyota ditched the tried-and-true 5.7-liter V8 for the new generation, but two engines replace it. For the base model, Toyota offers a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 putting out 389 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. Buyers can also opt for an upgraded i-Force Max hybrid version of that engine, delivering 437 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque, with a peak at just 2,400 rpm. Both engines use a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The Toyota Tundra has a new platform and suspension

The Tundra is the first American vehicle to move to the new TNGA-F truck platform, which underpins the new Land Cruiser. The truck receives a new multi-link rear suspension with coil springs, improving ride quality, handling and towing. The Tundra's tow rating improves to 12,000 lbs, 17.6% higher than the last generation. And the payload capacity is 1,940 pounds, up 11%.

Toyota is giving the Tundra a new double-wishbone front suspension tuned to improve cornering and body roll. Some trims can add an adjustable air suspension.

The new Tundra packs a TRD Pro Edition

Toyota again gives the Tundra a premium off-road-focused TRD Pro edition. The package includes 2.5-inch Fox internal bypass shocks with a 1.1-inch frot lift, a TRD Pro front stabilizer bar, red-painted suspension parts, TRD aluminum skid plates and unique Falken all-terrain tires. The TRD Pro is only available with the hybrid engine.

Toyota greatly upgraded the Tundra's interior

Toyota overhauled and modernized a dated Tundra interior designed to pair with the truck's "Technical Muscle" motif. The centerpiece is Toyota's all-new infotainment system that debuted on the Lexus NX, with a new virtual assistant and cloud-based user profiles. Buyers can opt for a 14-inch touchscreen paired with a 12.3-inch digital user interface.

There's no single-cab 2022 Toyota Tundra

Toyota has SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum and 1794 trims in addition to the TRD Pro model. Buyers can select TRD Off-Road and TRD Sport packages.
