This is what makes the Toyota Tundra Capstone so special

Toyota gave us the all-new 2022 Tundra, which kicked off the third-generation run of the well-balanced truck. The 2022 Tundra got a lot of attention due to the fierce yet responsive Tundra TRD Pro model that locks the horns with the Ford F-150 Raptor. And at the end of the spectrum, Toyota gave us the Tundra Capstone, their flagship.

Luxury and comfort are what set the Capstone apart from the rest of the Tundra line. There are no optional features here, as everything is standard. The seamless way Toyota has managed to merge toughness, luxury, comfort and exclusivity is what makes the Tundra Capstone unique.

Whether it’s the detailed 22-inch chrome wheels or the open-pore dark American walnut interior trim; the Tundra will always be the ace of the workhorse part. The Tundra Capstone makes things interesting in the luxury truck space and rivals the GMC Sierra 1500 Denali, Chevy Silverado 1500 High Country, Jeep Gladiator Overland and Ford F-150 Limited.

The 2022 Toyota Tundra Capstone takes the luxury appeal among trucks up a notch, with plenty of standard premium components.

That Capstone tag adds plenty of chrome in the form of 22-inch wheels, a distinctive mesh grille, mirror caps, trim accents and a validation “Tundra” badge. Automatic running boards that deploy when the doors are opened add to its comfort appeal.
