The 2020 Toyota Tundra is one of the most widespread models and it is sold in many countries around the world. This is the nameplate everybody is familiar with. One of the reasons the Tundra has a respectable position among the buyers is reliability. The previous version has covered miles and miles without any mechanical problems.
And with that segment developed, the Japanese manufacturer decided to focus on upgrading the performance. To produce a better vehicle, the chassis has been overhauled whereas the main frame and body panels have been built from the lightweight materials, to shed as much weight as possible. Aluminum is one of the most common materials used, but what else hides behind the 2020 Toyota Tundra? Keep on reading to discover.
Toyota Tundra Updates
The new model will have plenty of updates and we are starting from the cabin. The new Tundra will from now be available with the brand new infotainment system that is known as Entune. It is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. With the new infotainment system, the new vehicle will be fun to drive.
In addition, focusing on customer satisfaction, Toyota inserted extra USB ports all over the cabin. Whether you want to transmit music or video files, these will be quite convenient.
The engines you are familiar with are the iconic 4.0 liter V6 good for 276 hp and the 4.6-liter V8 that cranks out 300 hp. But is something else offered?
From now on, those who want to purchase the new Tundra will have additional engine to select. The unit we are talking about is the 5.3-liter V8 sourced by Lexus. It is expected to produce 394 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. Another powerplant that is available is the 5.7-liter V8 that will be refreshed. As for the transmission, the ongoing 6-speed automatic is out and the 8-speed automatic gearbox is now in. With it, the fuel efficiency improves and the driving will be smoother than ever.

The 2020 Toyota Tundra will not be too much different from its predecessor. The new front fascia is featured with a prominent chrome grille and besides that, the LED headlights will be more aggressive.

Thanks to the revised door panels, the new car looks bulkier and more attractive.

The brand new steering wheel is integrated with bucket seats to support your back during longer drives. Speaking of seats, the driver’s seat can be adjusted electronically and it comes with powered lumbar support. Plenty of other convenience features can be found inside the cabin such as the anti-theft system, cup holders, a compass and auto-dimming rear view mirrors.
