When you talk about Tundra pickup you can hear only good things about it. It is one of the most reliable models currently on the market. While reliable and practical, it lacks better off-roading experience, according to the customers. For that reason, the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is coming to the markets. It is a high-performance variant with amazing off-road capabilities.
The exterior will look even more aggressive and sporty. Interior will gain more standard equipment and the safety rating will be maximized. Under the hood, a mighty V8 engine is available once again. When it comes to upgrades for 2020, there won’t be any of it. The 2020 Tundra TRD Pro will look the same as its predecessor.
2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Is Sporty and Modern
The upcoming full-size pickup truck will arrive with the amazingly aggressive exterior design. Styling looks sporty and very modern. Unfortunately, the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will arrive as the same model as its predecessor. Literally, zero changes and upgrades will happen for 2020. The front end comes with the modern headlights and the grille will host forward-facing radar sensors. The similar design has been seen on the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD sport version.
We already mentioned the safety will be maximized and those sensors are just a small part of it. The front fascia looks mean and generally, the whole body is meaner than Tundra’s competitors. Halogen fog lights are not in the offer and LED units will replace the old ones. TRD Pro variant adds more skid plates and all of them are standard. The same stands for the towing hooks and the 18-inch aluminum wheels.
2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Interior Features High-Techs
No one is really bothered by the interior of a full-size truck that serves for off-roading purposes. But we understand that not all the people are the same. We must admit, the interior is surprisingly modern and comfortable. The 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will host plenty of premium materials, which includes the leather upholstery.
High-tech features are all over the cabin, the infotainment system is up to date, just like the navigation. Displays will remain and the whole interior will remain. There will be room for five passengers and the full-size pickup is offering ample interior room. Interestingly, headroom is even better and no other rival is offering better headroom in full-size class.
2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Powertrain
The upcoming 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will continue to offer the same 5.7-liter V8. This engine is capable of producing up to 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. It comes with the 6-speed automatic transmission and the rear-wheel-drive configuration. However, the four-wheel-drive setup will be optional as before.
This powertrain is one of those “old school” outputs that most of the customers don’t like at all. Perhaps it is the for Toyota to consider newer engine. For an instance, this V8 engine comes without modern systems such as direct fuel injection or cylinder deactivation. Even the fuel economy isn’t impressive at all. 15 mpg combined are far from the class-leading figures.
2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Price and Release Date
The starting price of the all-new 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is about $45,000. The high-performance variant will most likely hit the markets later in 2019, probably around November.
