The new Tundra Capstone grade provides a premium collection of features and upgrades for those looking to elevate their truck experience. As the new halo grade in the Tundra lineup, Capstone builds on the already impressive features of Toyota's all-new full-size truck. Tundra Capstone will be arriving at dealerships this spring, PR Newswire reported.
The new flagship of the Tundra lineup seamlessly crafts together premium, plush, and power into an exceptionally loaded package. Eyes will certainly be drawn to the largest wheels ever offered on Tundra thanks to the standard 22-inch chrome rims.
At its ruggedly handsome front, Capstone's unique grille features a color-keyed outer frame and a chrome inner mesh pattern complemented with subtle-yet-eye-catching chrome mirror caps, chrome "TUNDRA" tailgate inserts, and chrome trim accents.
Automatic running boards welcome everyone into the premium cabin experience that is no doubt highlighted by standard semi-aniline leather-trimmed seats. Not only are the seats luxury-grade, but they also tout stylish perforation and a Capstone-only black-and-white color combination. The center console and passenger-side dash are accented with authentic Dark American Walnut with an open-pore finish that highlights the wood grain.
On the dash, the Walnut inlay surrounds a Capstone logo which illuminates when the doors are opened. Speaking of letting a little light in, a panoramic moonroof is standard on Tundra Capstone. To help provide an even quieter cabin, Capstone is the only Tundra grade to feature acoustic glass on the front doors for more exterior sound deadening.
Drivers will appreciate the leather-trimmed heated steering wheel and large 12.3-inch digital Multi-Informational Display. The standard 10-inch color Head-Up Display provides an option that drivers can keep eyes in line with the road ahead.
The large, 14-inch multimedia touchscreen display comes standard on Capstone, controlling the all-new Toyota Audio Multimedia system designed and engineered by Toyota's Texas-based Connected Technologies team.
The new system offers an improved user experience thanks to new sight, touch, and voice activation. With Intelligent Assistant available through Drive Connect*, simple phrases like "Hey Toyota" awaken the system for voice-activated commands to search for directions, find Places of Interest (POI), adjust audio controls, change the cabin temperatures, and more.
The cloud-based native navigation system, aptly named Cloud Navigation, offered through Drive Connect allows for real-time Over the Air updates for mapping and POI, and Google POI data is integrated to ensure up-to-date search capability. The new system also supports standard wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility.
The new Toyota Audio Multimedia allows for simultaneous dual Bluetooth phone connectivity. A Wi-Fi Connect subscription offers 4G connectivity for up to five devices by turning Tundra into an AT&T Hotspot* and also the ability to link your separate Apple Music® and Amazon Music subscriptions to the vehicle with Integrated Streaming. Speaking of audio, Capstone offers an impressive 12-speaker JBL Premium Audio system for auditory delight.
For ease of entry and exit, Capstone offers standard power running boards, and it also boasts a standard power bed step for ease of entry in the truck bed. Complementing the Tundra's new multilink rear suspension system, Capstone offers available Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) and load-leveling rear height control air suspension.
The 2022 Capstone grade will be offered in one body configuration: CrewMax with a 5.5-footbed. Available colors include Wind Chill Pearl, Magnetic Gray Metallic, Celestial Silver Metallic, Midnight Black Metallic, Supersonic Red, and Blueprint.
