As we near the brand-new model year, the information on the 2019 Toyota Tundra are becoming clear. While we expect the majority of the Tundra lineup to remain unchanged, Toyota has actually announced some mild updates for the TRD Pro variation.
2019 Toyota Tundra Inside and outside, we anticipate the huge bulk of the 2019 Tundra designs to look essentially identical to the current variation. The one outlier will be the Tundra TRD Pro, which will get a couple of updates, including brand-new LED fog lights, “TOYOTA” grille, hood scoop, black-chrome exhaust tips, 18-inch BBS wheels, and “TRD Pro” marking on the bed.
Regardless of the fact that the 2019 Toyota Tundra is built on an architecture that was established all the method back in 2007, the good-looking and strong full-size truck still remains a strong seller for Toyota. Although an upgrade to a more modern-day platform wouldn’t hurt, Toyota appears to be of the frame of mind that what isn’t broken does not require repairing.
Returning for 2019 Toyota Tundra full-size pickup, the Tundra. As held true last year, the 2019 Tundra is expected to be offered in SR, SR5, Limited, TRD Pro, Platinum, and 1794 Edition trims. A 4.6-liter V8 engine is basic, producing 310 horsepower 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 booked for higher trims. A 6-speed automated transmission pairs up to both engines. Either 2- or 4-wheel drive is readily available, depending upon the variation picked.
2019 Toyota Tundra For the Tundra TRD Pro, recently included Fox off-road shocks replace the Bilstein/TRD devices discovered in previous designs. A variety of various accents unique to the TRD Pro are discovered both inside and out, consisting of LED headlights. Fog lights are included for enhanced exposure, and created BBS wheels wrapped in meaty all-terrain tires are likewise part of the package.
Safety is a glaring issue for many pickups, and the present Tundra is no exception. The worst of the lot is the Crew Cab model, which the IIHS provided a “MArginal” rating in the small-overlap test and an “Acceptable” score in the roof-strength test. Add this to its “Marginal” headlight test and “Basic” front crash avoidance, and you can see why it’s so far from being a Top Safety Pick. We expect this to all stay the exact same in 2019.
We anticipate to see the 2019 Toyota Tundra in showrooms in the fall of 2018. With no substantial modifications, we expect official pricing to stay just 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.
