The 2018 Chicago Auto Show has presented some keenly anticipated full-size pickup trucks coming from the well-known Japanese carmaker. Namely, Toyota tends to rule the market of trucks once again with its upcoming models such as Toyota Tundra. The new 2019 Toyota Tundra has been on its way to reveal some serious updates and hit the roads next year.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Toyota Tundra, this model is going to keep its recognizable full-size pickup truck styling. Known as a powerful off-roader, ready to face any type of rough and challenging terrains, the Tundra truck should keep the same large dimensions and shape of its predecessor. The truck will be available in several trim levels that will include different exterior features. However, whatever trim level you decide upon, you shouldn’t expect anything revolutionary to happen in terms of design. Most of those next-generation changes and improvements can probably be found in the front fascia where the buyers will notice its redesigned distinctive grille, massive bumper with new air intakes and its LED lighting system. Also, the new Tundra could possibly get a hood scoop for better cooling and booster performance. In the back part, this truck will wear some redesigned LED taillights and black chrome exhaust tips. The base model should be standing on standard 18-inch wheels.
Inside the 2019 Toyota Tundra, the off-road enthusiasts can find a really modern and enhanced cabin. According to the information we have got, the new Tundra will provide spacious and comfortable interior with some serious updates in terms of materials, technology and overall comfort. The functional and roomy cabin will be furnished with some high-quality materials such as leather, wood and aluminum. Higher trim levels will even offer a power-adjustable driver’s seat and heated and ventilated front seats. The high-tech area will be upgraded thanks to a 7.0-inch touch-screen display with the infotainment system and features such as satellite navigation, automatic climate control, audio system, Apple Car Play, Android Auto, USB ports and Bluetooth connectivity. The advanced safety systems and driver assist features found in the new Tundra include airbags, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, traction control, lane keep assist and a rearview camera.
The 2019 Toyota Tundra will use a 5.7-liter V8 that will be able to deliver the output of 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. The base model should probably keep using the current 4.6-liter V8, but this hasn’t been confirmed yet. When it comes to transmission, it has been speculated that Toyota might include a brand-new eight or ten-speed automatic transmission instead of the current six-speed.
