When it comes to reliable pickup trucks with tradition, Tundra is one of the best. This model really has everything you can ask for. It also has a high-performance variant. The 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will arrive once again. The range-topping trim level comes with an astonishing off-road capability.
On top of that, Toyota will add even more luxury inside the cabin. Moreover, this pickup truck will remain practical. The exterior will introduce a couple of minor changes for 2020. We can expect more standard features and better safety. Performance-wise, 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will continue to offer a powerful V8 engine. Some fans are very disappointed to hear this news as V8 unit feels kinda aging and outdated.
2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Looks More Aggressive
The all-new 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will remain a full-size pickup. It looks rugged and very aggressive. However, unlike the base model, TRD Pro adds a sporty vibe and it certainly looks more upscale. We can count on small exterior changes and upgrades only. That includes minor changes on the headlights and the front grille. The same grille now comes with the radar sensors. The front fascia looks more aggressive as a result. At the back, Toyota will keep the things intact.
The LED lighting system is offered as standard. TRD Pro trim offers plenty of off-road gear such as skid plates and off-road tires. As for the wheels, an 18-inch aluminum rims are available as standard. Tundra TRD Pro is available in three exterior colors: Voodo Blue, Midnight Black Metallic and Super White. As always before, open-mesh grille wears large Toyota block letters. The same letters are spelled out in red color.
Design and Safety
When you buy a high-performance full-size pickup truck, the interior is not a priority. However, the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will offer amazingly upscale and comfortable cabin. This trim level adds a couple of premium features and that includes standard leather upholstery. Numerous tech systems and features are in the offer. Also, the infotainment system is updated for 2020.
Tundra TRD Pro provides generous cabin space and a room for five passengers. Headroom is another strong category and Tundra offers one of the best-in-class figures. Generally, the interior is mostly unchanged and all of the important things will largely remain. Thanks to Toyota Sense Safety suite, Tundra TRD Pro is a very safe pickup truck. It adds numerous safety aids and driver-assistance features. For example, TRD Pro trim level comes with standard blind-spot monitors, adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning. For 2020, Toyota will improve safety rating with some new amenities.
2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Engine Specs
Under the hood, this full-size high-performance pickup truck will once again offer the same V8 powertrain. A 5.7-liter V8 produces 380 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. Acceleration is good but fuel economy isn’t. Whatsoever, this engine is rated at 15 mpg combined only. Yes we know, high-performance versions are not focused on fuel efficiency but those figures are abysmal.
Moreover, we heard so many complains from the customers about this aging unit. The biggest issue is fuel economy and lack of systems such as direct fuel injection. A 6-speed automatic transmission is another issue that will be a carryover for 2020. The customers can choose between RWD and 4WD systems.
Price and Release Date
When it comes to pricing details, new 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will once again start at $45,000. A small number of changes and upgrades won’t affect the starting price.
Of course, loading more optional features will cost you over $50,000 at least. Toyota’s new off-road pickup truck will hit the dealerships this November. We can expect more drastic changes in 2021.
