Toyota has always been a definition for the sturdy and strong trucks. Now, with the approaching launch of the 2020 Toyota Tundra, the company is back on the well-known path. The new model is getting some exterior changes, and the new grille will surely contribute to the more urban look. The interior is broader than before, with a lot of cargo space and plenty of room in the back.
The Tundra comes with the two type of engine, powerful more than enough to carry out every task. We assume that you’ll use Tundra to tow stuff, and the new model shines here as well. Thanks to the dynamic drivetrain, the towing capacity is better, and this truck can stand equally with the competition.
2020 Toyota Tundra Redesign
The exterior of the upcoming 2020 Toyota Tundra will keep the general shape and form of the previous version. But, some changes have been made. The Japanese company is the synonym for the tough-looking truck, with the models such as Land Cruiser and Hilux. The new Tundra will definitely follow the same path. The chrome grille is more prominent, giving the front fascia more urban and aggressive look.
Moreover, the lateral air-intake scoops on its hood as well as its bumper. This will add an extra touch of sporty and combative stance to the vehicle. The fog light is getting a makeover also. With the new model, they are more integrated into the edges of the bumper. The bumper is wider and set lower a bit, helping to improve the overall muscular look of the new Tundra. The wheels are 18-inch and the 110-volt power outlet is added as well.
2020 Toyota Tundra Cabin
The interior for new 2020 Toyota Tundra will get the similar refurbished look, just like the latest Tacoma’s redesign. The Tundra cabin is capped with perforated stitched leather, one of the best and most comfortable materials. The controls are very easy to reach and the position of the buttons is pretty good. The gist of the Tundra bulk appearance is having a lot of space. The interior is really enormous, especially in the back where the three adults can fit easily.
However, the 4-wheel-drive truck is usually tall, and that makes the entry and exit very clumsy. Luckily, the large wide-opening doors help a lot, and the optional running boards are worthy of adding to your package. The infotainment system includes Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support. The dashboard is a bit wider, with the larger touchscreen in the middle and digital cluster behind the wheel.
2020 Toyota Tundra TDR Pro
If you want better-off road performance, Toyota has the right thing for you- the TRD Pro trim. For the 2020 Toyota Tundra, this trim includes larger aluminum Fox shocks with better heat dissipation and damping control. Also, a 2-inch front lift for more clearance and lighter BBS forged wheel are included as well. The LED headlights and foglights will ensure enough light on the trail at night. A gleaming black exhaust tip and TRD Pro exhaust are the special features that change the exhaust note.
The front skid plate noticeably features the TRD logo in red. A unique grille, hood scoop and the TRD Pro stamping on the rear separate this trim from the rest of the line. Moreover, you can pick two body style- the regular Double cab crew or the larger CrewMax. The TDR Sport package adds 20-inch wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, and TRD shift knob.
2020 Toyota Tundra Specs
The only available engines for the 2020 Toyota Tundra are two V8 units. The 4.6-liter engine produces 320 hp and 327 lb-ft of torque. A second powertrain is a 5.7-liter unit that develops 385 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. However, while the company offers hefty 5.7-liter, the competition nowadays equip their truck with new turbo 6- and 4-cylinder engines. These smaller powertrains bring significantly higher fuel economy and still have enough power to get the job done.
The Toyota will update the fuel system for this V8 engine and add the dual Atkinson’s cycles as well. Furthermore, the old 6-speed gearbox is replaced with the modern 8-speed automatic transmission. There are certain rumors about developing a 10-speed trans, but without the official confirmation for now. The improvement of performances will boost the towing capacity as well. The new model is set to tow more than the current’s 10,500 pounds.
