It is true that Toyota has made several changes to the current Tundra. Yet, it turns out that this is nothing but a preview of the upcoming 2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel. Indeed, the company has been working on this all-new vehicle that is going to be introduced this year. Now, let’s see what the upcoming Toyota Truck will come with.
2020 Toyota Tundra New Update
We are going to see New Tundra changes for both exterior and interior. Both the exterior and the interior will be based on Toyota’s existing cars. Some say that the upcoming truck is going to get design cues from Camry. To be specific, the upcoming truck will get grille and headlights that are similar to what the Camry has. Yes, we know it’s hard to imagine.
As for 2020 Toyota Tundra interior, the interior design of the upcoming truck is said to be influenced by the latest Tacoma. Speaking of features, we expect it to have a new infotainment system as well as gauge cluster. Both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay should also be available, too.
Platform; Still The Same
There aren’t many things known about what kind of platform the upcoming Tundra Concept will use. The latest rumors suggest that the upcoming truck is going to receive new, lighter bodywork with a larger footprint. Tundra With TRD Pro Also Still Available and Still be a Favorite One
Assuming the rumors are true, the use of lightweight materials such as aluminum can be expected. And if a platform switch is to happen, a new suspension might be used. After all, a new suspension is going to be needed to improve handling and provide a better driving experience.
Engine Specs & Fuel Economy
Will the upcoming Tundra use the current 4.6-liter V8 and 5.7-liter V8 engines? No one knows for sure. The probability of it to use those engines, however, is low. The reason is that these engines are outdated these days. Due to this, there is a good chance that Toyota is going to introduce a new engine(s) for the upcoming Tundra.
Toyota need not use an all-new engine(s), though. We do believe that the manufacturer already has good options for the upcoming Truck.
The first option will be a 5.0-liter V8 engine with an output of 394 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. If you are wondering, this is the same engine used for the Lexus LS600h. The second option is a new generation 5.7-liter V8 engine. The engines are likely to be paired with 8-speed automatic transmission gearbox.
2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel Release Date and Price
There is no official statement regarding the exact release date for the New Tundra Diesel. That being said, we expect it to be exhibited on this year’s New York automotive show. And for the price, we predict it will be more expensive than the current Tundra. The starting price for the base model will be around $30,000 and up for the higher models.
On one hand, the details about the upcoming Tundra are still unclear. On the others, there are many rumors about it as we have shown above. While rumors abound and official details scarce, there is a good chance of 2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel Redesign to happen. We expect to see changes, updates and upgrade inside and out from the upcoming Tundra.
