2019 Toyota Tundra: Redesign, Engines, Features, Price

Toyota made some small changes for this year’s full-size pickup truck. However, this is just a preview for the new generation Tundra. Yes, the Japanese car manufacturer is definitely working on the all-new vehicle. Moreover, the redesigned truck will be introduced early next year as the 2019 Toyota Tundra.

2019 Toyota Tundra: Platform and Engines

We have to admit that we haven’t managed to catch a prototype of the pickup so far, which is the reason why we don’t know too much regarding the new design. However, according to the latest rumors, the amazing workhorse will get a new, larger footprint and lighter bodywork. If this turns out to be true, the potential buyers can expect some lightweight materials, likely aluminum. The truck will switch the platform and probably feature new suspension for better ride quality and improved handling.

Even we have no idea what’s going to power the new generation Tundra, it’s quite clear that the pickup won’t use the existing options. Both, the 4.6-liter V-8 and the 5.7-liter V-8 are outdated, so the producer must introduce something new.

We think that Toyota has a worthy engine already. In case you don’t know, the Lexus LS600h is equipped with a 5.0-liter V-8, capable of delivering 394 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. The carmaker could update the option, moving both power and torque over 400. Still, the unit will likely replace the 4.6-liter mill, but what’s going on with the topping option. Well, our insider claims that the 2019 Toyota Tundra may easily get the new generation of the 5.7-liter. Of course, the new mill will have to boost everything power and efficiency. No matter which options the new pickup truck gets, they should come in a pair with a six-speed automatic transmission with manual shifting mode.

Redesign Changes

The new generation Tundra will receive redesigned exterior and interior, both based on the existing Toyota’s cars. Although it’s pretty hard to imagine right now, truck’s new front end will host Camry’s cues. More precisely, the 2019 Toyota Tundra will get pretty similar grille and headlights. On the other hand, the interior should be heavily influenced with the new Tacoma. New infotainment system and gauge cluster is something the full-size pickup needs to get, and so is Apple CarPlay or Android Auto connectivity. Not to mention that the existing model comes with a single USB port.

Price and Debut

We don’t think that the 2019 Toyota Tundra can be ready for the 2018 NAIAS, but it should be done until the 2018 New York auto show. The price will likely go up. However, the base, single cab, the 2WD truck should not cost more than $32K.
