After so many years and redesigned versions in the market, the whole new generation of the iconic Toyota Tundra model has been keenly anticipated among the fans of full-size trucks. Well, the good news is that the year 2020 has been rumored to finally bring us the next-generation 2020 Toyota Tundra Redesign with its serious innovations in terms of design and technology, but also under the hood.
We must say that it is a bit difficult to guess how the 2020 Toyota Tundra will look like, especially at this early stage of its development. However, it has been speculated that the next-generation full-size truck is most likely to get a brand-new platform. The platform should come lighter in weight since the company will probably use some lightweight materials such as aluminum. This will definitely improve the efficiency, handling and overall performance of the truck. The overall shape and dimensions probably won’t change. Also, it has been said that this new platform will be shared with the popular 2020 Land Cruiser. The new Tundra should keep offering its several well-known trims. When it comes to exterior, most of the changes and innovations will probably be seen in the front end, which has already been compared to the Camry model. The redesign should include a new grille and headlights, getting some sharper, modern and more aggressive styling. The back part of the vehicle is also expected to show some improvements and a new set of wheels is possible as well.
It has been rumored that the 2020 Toyota Tundra might get a Tacoma-inspired interior. Namely, the truck will get a brand-new cabin that should show some serious upgrades in terms of comfort, technology and safety. The dashboard will probably undergo some redesign and appear more modern and the driver should hope for a larger touch-screen in the center console with the latest Entune infotainment system. Besides those numerous standard features and connectivity options, you might also get Apple Car Play and Android Auto as well as some additional USB ports.
The fans have probably been the most interested in engine choices that the 2020 Toyota Tundra will offer, especially in those brand-new. However, the new Tundra will probably keep its base 4.0-liter V8 as well as the 5.7-liter V8 that currently hits 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. When it comes to innovations, the next-generation Tundra might employ a 5.0-liter V8 that in some Lexus models delivers the output of 394 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. The truck could also get a brand-new eight-speed instead of the outgoing six-speed automatic transmission.
2020 Toyota Tundra Redesign Release Date and Price
It is too early to talk about the release date of the 2020 Toyota Tundra, but the next-generation truck should probably be expected in the second half of 2019. Its price shouldn’t change so the base model has been estimated to start around $33,000.
