SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. ‒ January 22, 2022 – Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, will auction two all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra Pickups for charity during the auction company’s 50th anniversary celebration at WestWorld of Scottsdale, January 22-30. These hybrid pickups will include the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro CrewMax Pickup VIN 002 (Lot #3005) and the VIN 001 2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid Capstone CrewMax Pickup (Lot #3007) with 100-percent of the hammer price for both going to the Toyota U.S. Paralympic Fund.
“Supporting philanthropic initiatives is the very foundation of Barrett-Jackson,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Over our 50-year history, we have helped raise more than $135 million for many nonprofit organizations doing exceptional work in our communities and we look forward to continuing these all-important efforts in Scottsdale with the auction of these new hybrid trucks from Toyota to benefit the Toyota U.S. Paralympic Fund.”
Lot #3005, the VIN 002 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro CrewMax Pickup is one of the first two Toyota hybrid pickups to be sold in North America. The 4×4 pickup’s i-FORCE MAX powertrain is a completely new hybrid system for Toyota that places an electric motor generator unit between the new 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine and 10-speed automatic transmission. Features include electronically controlled locking rear differential, Multi-Terrain Select (MTS) and Crawl Control (CRAWL), off-road suspension with FOX shocks and a 1.1-inch front lift, a 5.5-foot bed and maximum towing capacity of 11,170 pounds. Featured in a September 2021 reveal, the Tundra TRD Pro is most off-road capable model in the Tundra lineup. This pickup will cross the world-famous auction block on Friday, January 28 at approximately 6:30 p.m.
The VIN 001 2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid Capstone CrewMax Pickup will cross the auction block on Saturday, January 29 as Lot #3007 at 4:30 PM MST. As the newest flagship of the Tundra lineup, this auction will be for VIN 001 of the all-new, luxurious Capstone grade. Configured as a 4×4 CrewMax with a 5.5-foot bed, Capstone is powered by the new hybrid i-FORCE MAX powertrain that produces 437hp and a massive 583 lb.-ft. of torque! It comes loaded with unique chrome accents, standard 22-inch chrome wheels, standard luxury-grade leather, side acoustic glass for noise reduction, large 14-inch multimedia touchscreen, 10-in. color heads-up-display, power steps, panoramic moonroof and much more.
One hundred percent of the hammer price from both hybrid Tundras will go to benefit the Toyota U.S. Paralympic Fund. This fund directly impacts the lives of eligible U.S. Paralympic athletes aiming to compete at the Paralympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 and those who competed at the Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020. To date, more than 430 U.S. Paralympic athletes and hopefuls have received direct support from the more than $3.7 million raised thus far for the Toyota U.S. Paralympic Fund, with contributions from across the country, including Toyota dealerships.
“We are thrilled to join Craig Jackson and the Barrett-Jackson team in celebrating 50 years of The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions,” said David Christ, group vice president and general manager, Toyota Division, Toyota Motor North America. “For the occasion, we’re bringing two versions of the best full-sized truck on the market – our all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra. The auction proceeds will benefit the Toyota U.S. Paralympic Fund, a first-of-its-kind program that we launched last year in an effort to further support Team USA’s Paralympic athletes as they pursue their sport dreams.”
