2019 Toyota Tundra: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

As we near the new model year, the details on the 2019 Toyota Tundra are becoming clear. While we expect the majority of the Tundra lineup to remain unchanged, Toyota has announced some mild updates for the TRD Pro version.

Inside and outside, we expect the vast majority of the 2019 Tundra models to look virtually identical to the current version. The one outlier will be the Tundra TRD Pro, which will get a few updates, including new LED fog lights, “TOYOTA” grille, hood scoop, black-chrome exhaust tips, 18-inch BBS wheels, and “TRD Pro” stamping on the bed.

Inside, we expect everything to remain completely the same, including in the Tundra TRD Pro.

Under its hood, we expect the 2019 Tundra to continue with a choice of two V8 engines. If this proves true, then the base Tundra would feature a 4.6-liter V8 with 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque. Moving into the optional engine adds a 5.7-liter V8 with 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. We expect both V8s to come paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Safety is a glaring issue for most pickups, and the current Tundra is no exception. The worst of the bunch is the Crew Cab model, which the IIHS gave a “MArginal” rating in the small-overlap test and an “Acceptable” rating in the roof-strength test. Add this to its “Marginal” headlight test and “Basic” front crash prevention, and you can see why it’s so far from being a Top Safety Pick. We expect this to all remain the same in 2019.

Pricing & Release Date

We expect to see the 2019 Tundra in showrooms in the fall of 2018.

With no huge changes, we expect official pricing to remain similar to the 2018 model’s range, which was $32,415 to $51,425 (destination fees included).

The 2019 Tundra’s competition will include the Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado 1500, and Nissan Titan.
