Model Preview

In 2014, the Toyota Tundra went through its latest redesign, ushering in a more rugged and modern look. Since then, not much has changed, save for the 2015 introduction of the TRD Pro model. Most of the 2020 Toyota Tundra lineup will carry on unchanged, but the TRD Pro model will receive a few valuable updates.

Visually, the 2020 Toyota Tundra will be nearly identical to the current model. It’ll continue with its massive grille with an upper air intake, to-the-point body lines, and two cab formats: Double Cab or CrewMax.

Inside, the 2020 Toyota Tundra will maintain all the styling of the current model. These look will include an all-truck design with an upright dash, a large center stack with glove-friendly buttons and knobs, a huge center console, and a chunky, four-post steering wheel.

As for the TRD Pro model, Toyota will make a few visual changes exclusive to it. The most obvious will be a new Double Cab option — it was previously available as a CrewMax only. It will also upgrade to a standard JBL Premium Audio and Navigation infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Amazon Alexa compatibility. The final upgrade will be standard keyless entry and ignition.

Under its hood, the 2020 Toyota Tundra will continue with the same 4.6-liter V8 engine that will produce 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque. Optionally, buyers will be able to add a 5.7-liter V8 that will inject 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. Both engines will pair with a six-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive as standard, but optional four-wheel drive will be available. This powertrain will allow the Tundra to maintain its 10,200-pound towing capacity.

With no changes coming, we expect the 2020 Toyota Tundra to carry on with its not-so-hot crash-test scores from the IIHS. These include a “Marginal” score in the driver-side small-overlap test in the CrewMax model and an “Acceptable” rating in the same test in the Double Cab model.

While its smash-em-up scores aren’t great, the Tundra will also continue as one of the best-equipped pickup in the active-safety department. We expect it to retain its standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warnings, and automatic high-beam headlights.

Pricing & Release Date

We expect the 2020 Toyota Tundra’s production to start in July 2019 for a September 2019 on-sale date.

With no big changes coming, we expect the 2020 Tundra’s pricing to remain around the same range as the current model’s MSRP of $32,915 to $51,925 (destination fees included).

The 2020 Toyota Tundra will battle the Chevy Silverado 1500, Ford F-150, and Nissan Titan.
