Latest reports suggest 2019 Toyota Tundra will remain unchanged, compared to the current year model. Despite its age, this truck is still competitive. While the original model was in production between 1999 and 2006, the current model has been around for a much longer time. It came in 2007 and it looks like it will carry for another year. Latest reports suggest that the redesign is scheduled for the next year when we should see a completely new 2020 year model.
Until then, 2019 Tundra will continue in the same way, riding on a 12-year old chassis. Although old, this model is still a pretty decent truck. We have seen few updates during this long production cycle and the most recent was done last year when we saw few cosmetic updates. Considering all this, we are pretty sure that the company doesn’t plan changes for the next year.
2019 Toyota Tundra redesign
This truck is old and we are pretty sure that you can wait for another year to buy a completely new version. Still, you won’t go wrong if you choose 2019 Toyota Tundra. In this case, age doesn’t mean a lot. Moreover, this truck still has many great things to offer. Its solid chassis still provides competitive capabilities, so driving through hard terrains and weather conditions won’t be a problem at all. Even towing capacity is on a decent level, even for today’s standards.
Last year, we saw a mild update, which included few styling tweaks. Another important thing to mention is that Regular Cab model is not in the offer anymore. In terms of styling, 2019 Toyota Tundra still looks pretty good, both from the outside and inside. A full load of equipment ensures plenty of conveniences, while hi-quality materials will give you that premium feel.
2019 Toyota Tundra trim levels
The 2019 Toyota Tundra will continue in the same way when it comes to trim levels, so there will be four of them. The base SR is a classic workhorse. This trim includes standard features like 18-inch steel wheels, rearview camera, Bluetooth, a 6.1-inch touchscreen interface, a six-speaker sound system with a CD player and a USB port etc.
The next one is SR5. This version offers a great balance between price and quality. Some of the highlights are 7-inch touchscreen, HD and satellite radio, traffic information and a navigation app.
Most of the drivers prefer Limited trim. This model adds numerous features that raise the level of comfort significantly. Some of the additions are 20-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, movable tie-down cleats, automatic dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats etc.
Finally, there is a Platinum trim, which comes with some distinctive styling details, besides full-load of equipment.
2019 Toyota Tundra engines
This truck is well-known for its V8 engines. There are two of them in the offer.
The base model comes with a smaller 4.6-liter V8, which delivers around 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque.
This amount of power is enough to provide great performances, but the optional 5.7-liter unit is even better. This engine delivers 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. With this engine, 0-60 time is around 6.8 seconds, which is pretty impressive considering truck’s 5.800 pounds of curb weight. Still, fuel economy could be better, but don’t forget that this model came more than a decade ago.
Both engines come with a familiar 6-speed automatic transmission.
2019 Toyota Tundra release date and price
The 2019 Toyota Tundra should come late in the year. We don’t expect changes in the price, so base models will go around 32.000 dollars. Competition is tough since most of the rivals are much younger. Some of the most notable models are Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado, Ram HD, Nissan Titan etc.
