TRD Pro family is now larger. We could hear that Toyota added Sequoia to the chosen lineup of these off-road beasts. But, that is not all. The 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will be available with a Double Cab configuration. This is another cool addition for all those who don’t fancy the Crewmax cab. Besides that, the upcoming truck is getting a new TRD Pro package with significant upgrades. We can’t wait to see this pickup out and test it in toughest conditions we can find.
Toyota is trying to keep the pace with the competition. With the new Silverado off-road truck on the way, the Japanese truckmaker had to respond. Also, Ram could turn up as well in this segment, while Ford F-150 Raptor is already a major challenge. The 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro bring interesting changes to warm up the interest for the entire lineup. Sadly, we won’t see the standard model with a diesel engine, and that is the major downside of this pickup. However, the TRD Pro package makes it up.
2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Changes
The major update for the TRD Pro package is its availability for the Sequoia full-size SUV. We knew the company is about to expand the lineup. It was just a matter of choice which model will get it. The next SUVs to introduce the same package are Land Cruiser, Highlander, or even Rav4. Some say even Lexus LX, Toyota’s premium SUV could offer the TRD Pro in future.
The 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is again available with a Double Cab model. Last year, we could get these upgrades only for Crewmax version. Besides that, the truck will also have a push start instead of an old-school key turn. Some fans already complained about this. JBL is improving the audio system for sure. The Japanese company is improving its Entune infotainment system. Not only that home-developed features are better, but now Toyota is adding world–globally popular services. Starting next season, all models will come with an Android Auto and Amazon Alexa. Apple CarPlay was already available since the last year. Army Green joins the color palette. Now, you can opt for it, or white, metallic black, or metallic gray if you choose TRD Pro models. Changes on Tundra’s smaller stablemate, Tacoma, are going even further. A mid-size pickup also gets LED lamps, new wheels, and few upgrades for the cockpit.
No Diesel for 2020 Tundra
Under the hood of the new 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is a 5.7-liter V8 engine. This is the most powerful and reliable unit the Japanese company can offer. Of course, an all-wheel drive is standard. Power router for this off-road beast will be a six-speed automatic gearbox. The base truck is offering a smaller displacement. But, we all expect news about a diesel engine. Toyota is going to skip another season, although all its competitors are about to bring this kind of unit. We hope the Japanese company did not write off diesel for the future.
2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Release Date, MSRP
Changes and updates for the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro are available. The release date is set for the summer. Then, we will get the precise cost of the new model. Previously, TRD Pro upgrade for the Tundra made the truck get a higher price sticker. This version was just shy of $50k. Now, these minor upgrades will make it go over this mark.
