According to some loud recent speculations, it seems that the popular Toyota Tundra is one of those models that should receive their major redesign for the year 2020. Toyota hasn’t officially confirmed any of the details, but the fans of full-size off-roaders have been more than impatient to hear what they should expect, especially when it comes to its 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro trim.
It is clear that the 2020 Toyota Tundra is going to hit the market as a full-size pickup truck with excellent off-road capabilities. When it comes to exterior styling, this model is once again going to resemble its popular smaller relative Toyota Tacoma, at least in some features. It might also borrow some details from another cousin Toyota Land Cruiser since it has been rumored that the Tundra might get a brand-new platform shared with this model. This truck has been known for its great off-road performance which should now be even greater thanks to its enhanced suspension system. Its towing capacity is also expected to be increased to up to 10,400 pounds. When it comes to body style, the Tundra should offer a single, double and a crew max cab. It will also be available in more than one trim level – SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition and TRD Pro. The choice is yours. The base model should stand on 18-inch wheels, but those higher trim levels may get larger ones. Most of the redesign could probably happen around the front fascia where the truck would get a redesigned grille with chrome details as well as a modified massive bumper that would be placed lower. It will also use the latest LED technology for its lighting system.
The interior of the 2020 Toyota Tundra should also show some new design language, although there will be lots of details borrowed from some other Toyota models. Its cabin is expected to keep the reputation of being one of the most comfortable in its class. Depending on the trim you choose, you will find different high-tech features and connectivity options. When it comes to safety, the new Tundra will come with standard Toyota Safety Sense P, just like the Tacoma. This package includes autonomous emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keep assist, a rearview camera and others.
At the moment, three engine options have been discussed when it comes to 2020 Toyota Tundra. The first might be its current 4.6-liter V8 that delivers the output of 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque. The other could come with a 5.0-liter V8 that hits 394 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. Finally, another possibility includes a 5.7-liter V8 that produces 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. A brand-new transmission has also been speculated so the new Tundra might get either an eight-speed or a ten-speed automatic.
