Adding a second motor to VW's ID.4 electric crossover changes things, including our mood.
The 2022 Tundra has a maximum tow rating of 12,000 pounds.
We look at how the new off-road-oriented Tundra model stacks up against its main rivals from Chevy, Ford, and Ram.
The 2022 Toyota Tundra is new for its third generation, and it will be on sale by the end of the year in SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794, and TRD Pro trim levels. Crew- and extended-cab configurations are available with a choice of three different bed lengths, and a new twin-turbocharged V-6 hybrid called iForce Max is available on all but the SR and SR5 models. Toyota has shared images of a few Tundras with different option packages—there will certainly be more configurations available—but these are some of the versions we've seen so far.
Back then, the Tundra’s 5.7-liter V8 engine’s 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque sounded impressive, the six-speed automatic was state of the art and its 10,000-pound tow rating was competitive. In standard form, 389 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque are shuttled through a 10-speed automatic to either the rear wheels or all four. At low speeds, the hybrid system is capable of operating solely on electricity, but the gasoline engine will automatically kick on at speeds over 18 mph. Setting the Drive Mode Select dial to Sport or Sport+ (no, we don’t expect the new Tundra to be sporty, regardless of the modes) will maximize performance from the hybrid drivetrain.

Before Tesla considers rolling out a further expansion of its semi-autonomous driving technology, the automaker should take a hard look at what it's already released, according to Jennifer Homendy, head of the National Transportation Safety Board. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Homendy said, "Basic safety issues have to be addressed before they’re then expanding it to other city streets and other areas." Homendy further suggested that Tesla "has clearly misled numerous people to misuse and abuse technology."

One of the stars of the 2021 Munich auto show was the Volkswagen ID.Life, a concept built to preview an entry-level electric car aimed at a relatively young target audience. While it might not reach production exactly as you see it in our gallery, it illustrates the direction that the German firm's design language will take in the coming years. What stands out when you look at the ID.Life is that it shares no styling cues with Volkswagen's existing electric cars, like the ID.4.
