Tundra pickup is still one of the most reliable models in its segment. Competitors are getting plenty of improvements and Toyota is following that trend. The 2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel will hit the markets by the end of the year. It will get numerous updates in all of the categories. Tundra is one of the oldest models in the United States and it comes with a tradition.
On top of that, this pickup is very reliable and powerful. Thanks to its diesel engine, Tundra will look to beat the rivals once again. We can also expect numerous changes in terms of design. The interior looks very upscale and performances are truly great.
2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel To Get A Redesigned Grille
The upcoming 2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel won’t depart from the regular gasoline model in terms of design. Whatsoever, we don’t expect any major changes to happen. Tundra already offers a recognizable design that looks quite astonishing. Some parts of the exterior are looking really aggressive. Some other parts are very subtle and stylish. It is a perfect combination and one of the best designs we’ve seen it this segment. The full-size pickup comes with a meaner stance and bolder design.
New grille and headlights are larger than before. The grille also sports more chrome accents and it looks much more upscale. Range-topping trim levels are offering plenty of standard features. That includes power-operated features, larger wheels and LED headlights. Even the off-road equipment is available on all of the trims. Of course, body-colored features, skid plates, and tow hooks are still optional. Toyota could also introduce new exterior colors as well.
We can expect minor changes from the inside. The 2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel will offer the same layout as before. The infotainment system will gain important updates and it will be more responsive now. The gauge cluster is relatively fresh and it will remain unchanged. Comfort will be better now thanks to an upholstery.
However, leather upholstery is available as standard only on the upper trim levels such as Limited. This trim also offers real wood, chrome accents, larger displays and so much more. For instance, the base model comes with a 7-inch touchscreen and Limited with a 10-inch unit.
Standard Tundra model still rides on a proven 5.7-liter V8 that produces 380 horses and 400 lb-ft of torque. It is a powerful unit that comes with reliability and tradition. However, the real towing power comes from a diesel powertrain. It is a 3.0-liter output that will offer over 400 lb-ft of torque and 250 horsepower. Exact specs are not available yet.
Whatsoever, there are a lot of rumors about a possible 2.8-liter displacement. The gasoline engine will continue to offer a 6-speed automatic gearbox. On the other hand, a 10-speed automatic transmission is available on the Tundra Diesel model.
