Toyota is a company that built its reputation for the dependent vehicles they produce. Toyota Tundra 2020 is a full-sized truck that was created with careful following all the company’s main principles. Since it is present on the market for a good number of years without suffering a redesign of any kind, and this tells us something. However, the company feels like the time has come for a number of changes. From what we know, it’s not going to be much of a change, but they are going to update certain aspects of the vehicle. When it comes to the release date, we can expect it in late 2020 or early 2021.
Toyota Tundra’s Short History
Toyota Tundra’s production started back in 1999 and today it remains one of the most reliable vehicles when it comes to full-size trucks. It is interesting to know that this is the first North American pickup that was built by a foreign company. In this case, it was the Japanese company, Toyota. The first generation was produced from 2000 to 2006. The second generation is the vehicle we see now. Its production started back in 2007.
The second generation was designed by Craig Kember and Matt Sperling. When it comes to engines this vehicle changed several of them over time. At the same time, some of these were used at the same time, depending on models. The most recent one among these is a 4.6 L V8, which is in use from 2010. However, as we said, the company started thinking about updating their vehicle. Some rumors started flying around and we managed to collect all of them and present them in the next part of our article.
What Do We Know About the 2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel So Far?
What we have gathered from the company and other, unofficial, sources the biggest changes can be expected to the touchscreen navigation. At the same time, it’s going to include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. These changes will ultimately lead to bigger screens in the vehicle. Also, we have heard that the new 2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel is going to have a push-button start and a keyless entry. It sounds strange that someone would buy a keyless car, but we are crediting to the trends that emerged in the automobile industry in recent years. Furthermore, we have heard the stories about the new model not having a 4.6-liter V8 engine.
It’s going to be replaced with a 5.7-liter V8 engine. This whole new concept is appealing since it will have the ability to have a pulling capacity of 10.2k pounds. Moreover, it’s expected to have a maximum payload of 1.73k pounds. When it comes to the exterior, we don’t expect that the company will change the paint color. We believe this is a good decision since it became one of the most recognizable elements of the vehicle. Plus, it’s going to feature 8 airbags. Among them, it will have front passenger and driver seat-mounded. The color of the 2020 Toyota Tundra is Voodoo Blue. From what we have heard, the price of this vehicle is going to be around $54,000.
Even though there is absolutely no doubt that Toyota Tundra set some high standards in the last two decades, especially those that are related to safety, it looks like that update is needed. Naturally, every product needs an update every now and then in order to stay in the race with the competition. We believe that 2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel is once again going to be at the top in the industry, especially when it comes to the full-sized trucks.
