Despite having a many models in its vehicle line-up, the 2022 Toyota Tundra will be the first to benefit from the Japanese OEM’s all-new Audio Multimedia system.

The system was designed and engineered by Toyota’s Connected Technologies team based in Texas and will be delivered to users via a newly designed touchscreen built into the Tundra’s dashboard. A new human machine interface (HMI) will enable interaction via sight, touch, and voice control.

Standard models feature an 8in touchscreen while a 14in screen with an improved resolution can be selected as an optional extra. This also includes more responsive touch functionalities. All models will benefit from wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility as standard.

In addition to the centrally mounted touchscreen, drivers of the Tundra will have vehicle data displayed on two all-new instrument panels. An available 12.3in thin film transistor (TFT) screen or a combination meter with a 4.1in digital multi-information screen (MID) provides drivers of the Tundra with analog readouts. Alongside vehicle information, the screens can be used for access to navigation, audio controls, off-road features, towing functions, and safety features.

Featuring a digital tachometer and speedometer, the 12.3in screen enables drivers to customize the displayed information, such as tow gauges, pitch and roll displays or engine performance gauges.

Furthermore, the 4.1in combination meter benefits from multiple screen options including navigation, audio selections and vehicle diagnostics among others. Around the MID screen are analog gauges that display tachometer, speedometer, oil, and fuel level.

Two integrated cabin microphones enable both drivers and front passengers to make use of voice commands for interacting with the vehicle and its infotainment system.
