The 2022 Tundra pickup truck's i-FORCE MAX hybrid powertrain gives Toyota a powerful new way to deliver high performance and muscular capabilities while reducing emissions and working toward carbon neutrality. In fact, the i-FORCE MAX is so innovative that it was recently named to the 2022 Wards 10 Best Engines & Propulsion Systems list. Read on to learn more about this award-winning new powertrain!

The best of both worlds

The Wards 10 Best list evaluates powertrains based on factors like horsepower and torque, efficiency, smoothness, and new tech. The i-FORCE MAX excels in all these areas. It pairs a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with a 48-horsepower electric motor. Also part of the picture: a 10-speed automatic transmission. The electric motor makes the V6 more efficient and effective, kicking in with small boosts in torque and acceleration power as needed to help the Toyota Tundra perform at a high level.

Impressive specs

Tundra models equipped with the i-FORCE MAX don't have to compromise in any way. This powertrain can generate a hearty 437 horsepower and 583 lb-ft of torque, tow a max of 11,450 pounds, and haul a payload of up to 1,665 pounds. The i-FORCE MAX also enables solid fuel economy, especially for a large truck: up to an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city, 24 mpg on the highway, and 22 mpg combined.[1]

Also powering the Sequoia

Don't want to buy a pickup truck? You can also experience the i-FORCE MAX hybrid powertrain by purchasing the new 2023 Toyota Sequoia full-size SUV! You'll get identical horsepower, torque, and combined fuel economy, along with up to 9,520 pounds of towing capacity.
