The 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro has a lower payload rating than the Ford Ranger
Ford’s famous middleweight punches the top of his weight class compared to the latest tundra.
The new Toyota Tundra is a big truck, no doubt about it. Okay, this is a full-size pickup, which means most drivers expect a large number on its space sheet, but the ’22 Tundra has been hit by some small trucks with important specs like payloads. Toyota’s newest tundra, the TRD Pro, has a higher payload than any single Ranger currently built by Ford.
The TRD Pro has a maximum of 45 1,455, according to the Expedition portal. The Ranger, on the other hand, will support between 47 1,478 and 90 1,905 depending on the trim. Note that the word car maker usually walks you “up”.
The new Tundra has a payload rating of up to 1,940 pounds, but the TRD Pro will carry much less. It’s funny how the phrase “until” doesn’t apply to price. When discussing pricing, the clause almost always “starts from.” Toyota is not the only company doing this; All car manufacturers do this. Phrases like “until” and “start” are common practice.
But it is a practice that, in this case, tundra glasses can confuse those unfamiliar with pickups. There is a difference between trucks that can be pulled and pulled and those that are considered performance trucks. There is a lot of Tundra TRD Pro in performance camp.
The TRD Pro is only powered by a hybrid drivetrain in the new generation model, meaning the latest off-road tundra in the lineup has to consider an electric motor and battery. In that sense, it is one of the few product models in the world that has an off-road specific hybrid pickup.
If you take a look at the lens of something like a Ford Raptor, you will see that it also has (at least) a low payload spec of 1,400 pounds. Clearly, there is an inverse relationship between off-road and payload capabilities. But the problem with the ’22 Tundra and the current Ranger is that the Tundra’s maximum payload of 1,940 pounds is not far from the Ranger’s maximum of 1,905 pounds.
I’m not sure this will help the tundra emerge from the shadow of the last generation of critics, whose towing and payload ratings were significantly lower than those of its competitors.
