As we near the new model year, the information on the 2019 Toyota Tundra are ending up being clear. While we anticipate most of the Tundra lineup to stay the same, Toyota has actually revealed some moderate updates for the TRD Pro variation.
Inside and outside, we anticipate the large bulk of the 2019 Tundra models to look practically similar to the existing variation. The one outlier will be the Tundra TRD Pro, which will get a couple of updates, consisting of new LED fog lights, “TOYOTA” grille, hood scoop, black-chrome exhaust pointers, 18-inch BBS wheels, and “TRD Pro” marking on the bed.
Regardless of the truth that the 2019 Toyota Tundra is constructed on an architecture that was established all the method back in 2007, the good-looking and durable full-size truck still stays a strong seller for Toyota. Although an upgrade to a more contemporary platform would not injure, Toyota seems of the state of mind that exactly what isn’t really broken does not require repairing.
Returning for 2019 is Toyota’s full-size pickup, the Tundra. As held true in 2015, the 2019 Tundra is anticipated to be used in SR, SR5, Limited, TRD Pro, Platinum, and 1794 Edition trims. A 4.6-liter V8 engine is basic, creating 310 horse power and 327 lb.-ft. of torque, while a 5.7-liter V8 producing 381 hp and 401 lb.-ft. of torque with tow mode is scheduled for greater trims. A 6-speed automated transmission pair to both engines. Either 2- or 4-wheel drive is offered, depending upon the variation picked.
For the Tundra TRD Pro, freshly included Fox off-road shocks change the Bilstein/TRD devices discovered in previous models. A range of various accents unique to the TRD Pro are discovered both within and out, consisting of LED headlights. Fog lights are consisted of for enhanced presence, and created BBS wheels covered in meaty all-terrain tires are likewise part of the plan.
Security is a glaring concern for the majority of pickups, and the existing Tundra is no exception. The worst of the lot is the Crew Cab model, which the IIHS offered a “MArginal” score in the small-overlap test and an “Acceptable” score in the roof-strength test. Include this to its “Marginal” headlight test and “Basic” front crash avoidance, and you can see why it’s up until now from being a Top Safety Pick. We anticipate this to all stay the very same in 2019.
We anticipate to see the 2019 Tundra in display rooms in the fall of 2018. Without any substantial changes, we anticipate main rates to stay much like the 2018 model’s range, which was $32,415 to $51,425 (location charges consisted of). The 2019 Tundra’s competitors will consist of the Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado 1500, and Nissan Titan.
