Getting To Know The 2020 Toyota Tundra Inside And Out

The Toyota Tundra being one of the oldest pickup trucks in its class, is well known among the truck users through decades. it has been a model name that stood for reliability and capability when it comes to executing every kind of task that a pickup truck is supposed to do. 

Toyota has developed the Tundra series with diligence and now with its 2020 edition, it stands at par with all other modern pickup trucks while providing high end safety technologies as standard equipment. The Toyota Tundra is also known for its mettle in off-roading, that has been yet more refined with the 2020 year release. 

Appreciable Features

As discussed with a veteran staff at the Caldwell Toyota dealership, despite its aged design and conventional powertrain, Tundra has always proved itself as a potent performer. Knowing its popularity, Toyota has enhanced its capabilities further for the 2020 edition. And now, the 2020 Toyota Tundra can impress any truck buyer with its rugged disposition which is a result of its lifted suspension and the right set of equipment for a perfect trail. Among all other body styles, the crew cab of 2020 Tundra gained more popularity for its huge back seat apart from the versatile storage  space it allots. But that’s not all. To know what it be like driving a 2020 Tundra on road as well as on the work sites, you need to scroll down a bit.

Body Styles of 2020

Let’s start with the dynamic lineup of the 2020 Toyota Tundra that is consisted of SR, SR5, Limited, TRD Pro, Platinum and 1794 Edition trim models. Toyota made the 2020 Tundra available in three cargo-bed lengths. The shortest one measures 5.5 feet which is available only with the crew cab, while you can pair the extended cab either with a 6.5- or an 8.1-foot bed.

2020 Power Capacities

The biggest change in the 2020 Tundra lineup is that the 4.6-liter V-8 engine which was so long set as  standard is now replaced with the 5.7-liter V-8 alternative, and a flex-fuel version of it has been dropped as well. The SR5 trim of the 2020 Tundra lineup now receives few upgrade options like a push-button start with passive entry for the exterior, leather surfaces, front bucket seats and power-operated driver’s seat for the interior. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability is made available on most of the trim models. 

Performance and Capability

A customer whom we met at the Toyota Caldwell dealership commented that in comparison to the newer and commonly seen advanced powertrains, the powertrain of 2020 Tundra appears to be much obsolete. It is still continuing with the 5.7-liter V-8 that makes 381 of horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. Though Toyota made rear-wheel drive as standard it doesn’t deprive the lineup from the four-wheel drive and offers both setups as optional, though not all the cab-and-bed configurations get this benefit. The powertrain of the 2020 delivers reasonably peppy performance, and the credit should go most to its firm suspension, that irons out every bump when driving through rough surfaces.
