Toyota has revealed their EPA estimates for the Tundra Hybrid's mpg and assuming they're accurate it gets the same numbers as Ford's F-150 PowerBoost.

Toyota says the 2WD Tundra Limited i-Force Max gets 20 mpg in the city (2 mpg better than the non-hybrid), 24 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined.

The 4WD Tundra Limited i-Force Max gets 19 mpg city, 22 mpg highway and 21 mpg combined.

Pro models are rated at 19 mpg city, 21 mpg highway, and 20 mpg combined.

As much as has been pointed out that the iForce Max powertrain wasn't built for fuel economy, it has the same configuration as Ford's Powerboost. Yes, the Tundra is a good bit heavier (substantial?) but it should deliver a bit better than what these ratings are. I suppose it follows with Toyota's conservative approach. With ratings like this, they'll never get clobbered by anyone not getting advertised ratings. With iForce trucks FAR exceeding EPA highway ratings, I expect the Max powertrain will do the same.

It certainly wouldn't be the first vehicle to exceed its EPA ratings if/when that happens. It will be interesting to see what people get in real-world testing.
