About the Toyota Tundra

Strength, power, and capability. Each of these three characteristics not only are core attributes which define the Toyota Tundra — they are some of the most important aspects of any full-size pickup purchase. Proudly assembled in San Antonio, Texas, the Tundra is equipped with a muscular 5.7-Liter Aluminum i-FORCE V8 with 381 horsepower. Two cab configurations and three different bed lengths help ensure that there’s a Toyota Tundra ready to suit your needs.

The Tundra offers the ability to tow up to 10,200 pounds, largest front brakes in its class, and a massive 38 gallon fuel tank which is also the largest in its class. For those who demand the ultimate in performance, the Tundra TRD Pro is engineered for unparalleled off-road capability thanks to a TRD-tuned FOX® suspension and rugged forged BBS® wheels. Craving more luxury and refinement inside your truck? Tundra Limited, Platinum, and 1794 Edition trim levels have you covered with available perforated leather-trimmed seating surfaces and plenty of infotainment options to help you stay connected. You can also check out the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro to learn even more about the model.

What the Critics Say

Unlike the original, this Texas-built version is sized on par with 1/2-ton domestic competition and offers similar towing and payload capabilities. Three different cab sizes and three different bed lengths are available. Our favorite engine choice is the rewardingly powerful 5.7-liter V8; thus equipped, the Tundra can tow around 10,000 pounds.” — Consumer Reports
The Tundra seats five or six people, depending on whether you opt for front bucket seats or stick with the standard bench seat. The front seats are comfortable and supportive, particularly in the higher trims. Both standard Double Cab and CrewMax models have plenty of rear-seat space for adults to be comfortable.” — U.S. News & World Report

What’s New For 2020

Truck shoppers will notice several key changes to the Toyota Tundra for the 2020 model year. The sole engine choice for the Tundra is now the 5.7-liter I-FORCE V8 as last year’s 4.6-liter V8 has been discontinued. Tundra TRD Pro models are now available in both in both Double Cab and CrewMax configurations. Buyers will also be excited to learn that both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration is now standard on all grades of the Toyota Tundra. SR models now feature a standard 7-inch touchscreen with all other trims receiving a standard 8-inch touchscreen display. Voodoo Blue, previously exclusive to TRD Pro trims, is now optional on other Tundra models.

Powerful Performance

Built for long hours at the job site and relaxation on a weekend fishing trip, the Toyota Tundra has plenty of performance to help get the most out of your busy lifestyle. A powerful 381-horsepower 5.7-Liter Aluminum i-Force V8 comes standard to help you tackle the toughest tasks on your to-do list. A standard Automatic Limited Slip Differential (Auto LSD) helps you avoid wheelspin and escape from slippery situations. Models equipped with four-wheel drive also feature Active Traction Control (A-TRAC) optimizes traction across the front and rear axles simultaneously and gives you full use of a 2-speed transfer case. The largest front brakes in its class also provide plenty of stopping power to help slow the immense strength of the Toyota Tundra.

Payload & Towing

Every Tundra equipped with the 5.7-liter V8 comes standard with an Integrated Trailer Brake Controller for maximum control of what’s going on behind you. Thanks to outboard-mounted shock absorbers, a heavy-duty TripleTech™ frame, and integrated towing hitch — the Toyota Tundra has a maximum towing capacity of 10,200 pounds. Also available are a dedicated TOW/HAUL mode switch, supplemental engine oil cooler and transmission cooler, and a heavy-duty battery. The maximum payload rating for the Tundra is a massive 1,730 pounds, giving you the ability to carry even your biggest toys. You’ll have bed options which include 5.5-foot short bed, 6.5-foot standard bed, and 8.1-foot long bed lengths.

2020 Toyota Tundra Interior

Versatile Interior

Perfectly suited for a hard day’s work or a relaxing night on the town, the interior of the Toyota Tundra offers a balance of ergonomics and luxury not found on many full-size pickups. Its rear seats fold up instead of flat, helping to create usable cargo space inside the cab. With standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, accessing your favorite media is effortless. A standard integrated backup camera makes hitching up to your trailer much easier. CrewMax Tundra models come standard with a power vertical rear window to help fill the cabin with fresh air. For the ultimate Tundra experience, the 1794 Edition offers a Western-themed interior with brown premium perforated leather-trimmed seats.

Advanced Safety

Even the best drivers can use a helping hand to keep them protected from the unexpected. Which is why every Toyota Tundra comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) — a collection of driver-assistive safety technologies. Features included are a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD), Lane Departure Alert with Sway Warning System (LDA w/SWS), Automatic High Beams (AHB), and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC). The Tundra was also the first full-size pickup to offer an available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), proving its commitment to keeping drivers safe. 8 standard airbags provide further peace of mind inside the Toyota Tundra.
