All those off-road enthusiasts will be glad to hear that the TRD Pro is back. After a year of break, this version came back with the 2019-year model. Not only that it came back, but it also received a lot of novelties. There are several mechanical upgrades, as well as a fine amount of new styling details. Therefore, we are pretty sure that the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will continue in the same way, without more important changes in any aspect. As you probably know, the next generation is still a couple of years away from us and we are pretty sure that the current model won’t receive any important change until then.
2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Design
In terms of base design characteristics, the recent comeback has brought a lot of novelties and we have no doubt that the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will continue in the same way. This mainly refers to the new suspension. The biggest novelty are new Fox Racing 2.5-inch shocks on all wheels. Thanks to a new design, you can count on both more travel and smoother on-road ride. You can count on additional 1.5-inches of travel up front and 2.0-inches of travel out back. Also, it is important to mention that rear shocks come with remote reservoirs.
The recent update has also brought plenty of styling upgrades and we have no doubt that the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will continue in the same way. It is hard to expect any important aesthetical novelty after all these updates. Some of the highlights are a new grille, which is less bulky and comes with a new pattern, as well as new 18-inch BBS wheels. Also, there is a new hood scoop, as well as things like 1/4-inch thick front sid plate with red TRD lettering, new headlights and LED fog lights. The rear end also came with a couple of novelties and a new black coated exhaust is definitely the most interesting one.
Considering all these changes that came recently, we are pretty sure that the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro won’t get any important modification. Still, don’t exclude the possibility to see some new exclusive color options and similar things.
2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Interior
Compared to standard models, the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will come with a couple of exclusive details. Of course, most of them are in terms of aesthetics. The overall layout is pretty familiar and a great thing about this off-road version is that both Double Cab and CrewMax models are in the offer. The most distinctive detail is definitely leather upholstery that comes with attractive red stitching. The dashboard comes in the same manner. Also, count on “TRD Pro” emblems around the cabin, particularly on seatbacks and center armrest. In terms of tech features, there aren’t many differences compared to standard models.
2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Engine
In terms of the powertrain, there is no place for surprises. Like other Tundra models, this one will also feature a well-known and proven 5.7-liter V8 engine, which delivers 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. Besides plenty of power, this engine also features amazing reliability and durability, which plays a very important role in the off-road drive. It comes with a familiar 6-speed automatic transmission, as well as with a part-time 4WD system.
It is still unclear whether this version will be available with a new diesel engine or not. As you probably know, the 2020 Tundra is about to get a new engine, a 5.0-liter turbodiesel from Cummins.
2020 Toyota Tundra Pricing
When it comes to the 2020 Toyota Tundra price, this is one of the most expensive versions in the offer. Base Tundra models go around 31.500 dollars. It might seem too high, but keep in mind that this truck is not available in single cab variants. A well-equipped Limited trim level would cost you around 40.000 dollars, while a top-range Platinum model starts at 47.000 dollars. On the other side, the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will feature a starting price of around 43.000 dollars.
2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Competition
Of course, the key competitor is Ford Raptor. Both models feature excellent off-road performances. The Raptor is faster, as it comes with a 450-hp V6 engine. Still, the Tundra TRD Pro has one huge advantage. It is far more practical for an everyday ride and also features far more affordable price. The base Raptor goes around 50.000 dollars. If you want to get all features from the list of options, it rapidly raises all away to 70.000 dollars. On the other side, the base 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro price should go around 43.000 dollars.
Another competitor is Ram Rebel, which is a version of the legendary Ram 1500, also characterized by strong off-road capabilities.
