2019 Toyota Tundra
As we near the new model year, the details on the 2019 Toyota Tundra are ending up being clear. While we expect most of the Tundra lineup to stay the same, Toyota has actually revealed some mild updates for the TRD Pro variation.
2019 Toyota Tundra Design
Inside and outside, we anticipate the large bulk of the 2019 Tundra models to look essentially identical to the current version. The one outlier will be the Tundra TRD Pro, which will get a couple of updates, including 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 reality that the 2019 Toyota Tundra is developed on an architecture that was developed all the way back in 2007, the handsome and tough full-size truck still stays a strong seller for Toyota. Although an upgrade to a more contemporary platform wouldn’t hurt, Toyota seems of the frame of mind that what isn’t really broken doesn’t need fixing.
2019 Toyota Tundra Engine
Returning for 2019 is Toyota’s full-size pickup, the Tundra. As was the case last year, the 2019 Tundra is expected to be used in SR, SR5, Limited, TRD Pro, Platinum, and 1794 Edition trims. A 4.6-liter V8 engine is basic, producing 310 horse power and 327 lb.-ft. of torque, while a 5.7-liter V8 generating 381 hp and 401 lb.-ft. of torque with tow mode is reserved 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 chosen.
2019 Toyota Tundra Features
For the Tundra TRD Pro, freshly added Fox off-road shocks replace the Bilstein/TRD devices found in previous models. A variety of different accents special to the TRD Pro are discovered both inside and out, including LED headlights. Fog lights are included for improved exposure, and created BBS wheels wrapped in meaty all-terrain tires are likewise part of the package.
Safety is a glaring problem for a lot of pickups, and the current Tundra is no exception. The worst of the lot is the Crew Cab model, which the IIHS offered 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 prevention, and you can see why it’s so far from being a Top Safety Pick. We anticipate this to all remain the same in 2019.
2019 Toyota Tundra Pricing & Release Date
We anticipate to see the 2019 Tundra in display rooms in the fall of 2018. With no huge changes, we anticipate official prices to stay just like the 2018 model’s range, which was $32,415 to $51,425 (location costs included). The 2019 Tundra’s competition will consist of the Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado 1500, and Nissan Titan.
