So, while Tundra sales pale in comparison to f-150 and Silverado, they still have built up a fiercely loyal following over the years. Now for 2020, Toyota is adding several long-requested tech features to the reliable truck in a bid to both appease the crowd and hopefully draw in some new customers.

2020 Toyota Tundra Detail
Let’s check out the 2020 changes. So, like always beginning things on the outside, you won’t notice any update since Twitter to focus their attention on the cabin. That means you’ll continue to find a bowl and muscular grill across all models. Always this shape but in a variety of finishes here on the Platinum. We have a metallic mesh in the middle, and body-color surrounds. While the 2020 Toyota Tundra SR5 also gets this setup, both chrome surrounds and black mesh.
The other option is a bowl chrome grille shared between the limited and the 2020 Toyota Tundra 1794 trims. Turning to the headlights, they have entirely LED on all with the base two trims, and even those trims still have the LED daytime running lights too. Go along with that most models also have LED fog lights, and it is worth pointing out that the bumpers will only be body-colored on this platinum. They are moving to the side. We want to talk about the available cab and bed configurations.
Now, if you choose the top 2 trims, you are locked into a 2020 Toyota Tundra Crew Cab with these short five-and-a-half-foot beds. But the SR and 2020 Toyota Tundra limited can pick the double cab with six and a half or 8.1-footbed, and then heading around back the design here has also stayed the same and looks very similar to what is found in the Silverado and f-150 Tundra is stamped into the tailgate.
There are narrow, stacked taillights, and we have a side-mounted chrome exhaust pipe. Overall the tundra remains a handsome-looking truck that has a design that is neither too offensive or too bland. Now heading up to the wheels, the same handful of options can be picked this year.
Both our platinum and a 2020 Toyota Tundra 1794 come with these 20-inch six-spoke premium alloys. While the limited also gets 20-inch alloys but with its design. Finally, the 2020 Toyota Tundra SR trims come with 18-inch steel wheels or optional 18-inch alloys.
Next up we have the mirrors which are fully loaded on the top end models we have heating chrome caps power-folding auto-dimming abilities and even blind-spot monitoring. Speaking of BSM, that leads me into one of the tundra strongest suits, which is safety features.
While all the competition makes you go up the trim ladder or order expensive packages. The tundra gives you pre-collision braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with sway warning auto high beam headlights, and adaptive cruise control all standard even on the cheapest model.
But anyway, guys that sums up all the rear areas of this 2020 Toyota Tundra, get on the road and see how it compares to its modern rivals. All right, so let’s go ahead and go over our 2020 powertrain changes. Thus, the news this year is that the base engine is no longer offered on any of the trim levels, So you’re going to automatically be getting the 5.7-liter V8.
Even on the base 2020 Toyota Tundra SR now there does remain the same as last year, so you’ll be looking at 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. As far as the transmission, it does continue to have a six-speed automatic. And every trim does have the choice between two-wheel drive and four-wheels.
As far as fuel economy, you would expect it is a little bit less than rivals with more advanced like turbo engines and stuff like that. So, what you’ll be looking at 13 cities, 18 highway, 15 combined with two-wheel drive. If you go for the four-wheel-drive version, it’s going to drop down another MPG to 14 combined.
Is that naturally aspirated 5.7-liter V8? Is it doesn’t use any turbos anything like that? Of course, it’s bulletproof and reliability, but it’s fast, and it sounds delicious as well. You’re definitely not going to get anything. That sounds like that and like the EcoBoost engine. They’re not terrible engines, but it’s just the sound is definitely not going to be there, and power in this is excellent.
This is a big truck that gets it going no problem and like we already have mentioned. You now have this as the standard engine, so that is, you know, and essential change because even if you go for the cheap and base models, you’re still going to get this great engine. You will be noticing when you are just cruising down the road going about 40 inches this car. It rides smooth! You do feel like you’re sitting up beautiful and high, so that’s the right pro for a truck.
