2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel is actually only a version of the well-known truck that Toyota makes and according to announcements, almost unchanged in design from the last model. That does not sound well since the last model was released in 2006 and has not much changed after that. It is about time for the manufacturer to consider about fully redesign, but before that is happening we have this model with new diesel engines. As Toyota has not changed trim versions this version is somewhere in the middle of the list and offers many interesting and attractive things for this class.
As we said, do not expect significant changes in the design of 2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel, except maybe few differences in detail. It still has the same massive metallic mesh grille with large LED front lights and wide bumper below it. The rear end is traditionally flat with simple rear lights and details in chrome. Besides that, the truck is high and wide and very aggressive.
Interior of 2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel is designed to follow market’s demands and it is surely attractive, but let’s say that the manufacturer remained all traditional and maybe to old-fashioned details. It actually has only a few changes and those are for diesel engine purposes, like some new commands, while the overall look is almost the same. In term of technology, there are many novelties, like 7-inch touchscreen, HD and satellite radio, traffic information and a navigation app, automatic dual-zone climate control, and power-adjustable front seats.
As we said before, the engine will actually be the only thing that is new in 2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel, and it will be actually offered in three versions. The base model will have 5.0-liter V8 with 310 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque. Paired with the six-speed automatic transmission it delivers more strength and provides more towing capacity. However, there are two other options, a 4.6-liter with 310 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque and a 5.7-liter with 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque.
2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel Release Date and Price
2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel comes by the end of the year for the price of around $30,000 for the base model. Competitors are a large truck like Chevrolet Colorado, Dodge Dakota, Ford Super Duty, Range Rover, and RAM trucks. Keep in mind that nothing particular will be changed in this version in terms of design and look, so maybe is good to wait a newly redesigned model if that is something you want to see in this vehicle.
