2020 Toyota Tundra - Dealership

2020 Toyota Tundra - Dealership

Toyota Tundra review

The Toyota Tundra has been a solid performer in the full-size truck market since its launch back in 1999. However, the Japanese company has never been one to rest on its laurels, and continuous improvements to the model means it remains very much a modern pickup. What does the latest 2020 Toyota Tundra offer today's truck buyers?

Body Formats

The Tundra is available in Double Cab and CrewMax formats, with both short bed and long bed options available. There's plenty of scope to put together the pickup configuration you need to get the job done.

Engine and Transmission

All versions of the 2020 Toyota Tundra are equipped with the same powerful engine. The 5.7L i-Force V8 mill pushes out a sturdy 381 horsepower and 401lb-ft torque, providing plenty of capacity for the most demanding tasks.

On all models, the power is passed through a six-speed automatic transmission to standard rear-wheel drive. However, on the two higher trim levels, the drive can be switched to four-wheel when conditions demand, letting you balance greater traction with higher fuel economy from job to job.

Payload and Towing Capability

But raw performance figures aren't necessarily the sign of a good truck. Capability matters hugely, and in this area the 2020 Tundra is particularly strong. Depending on the trim level, the truck has a maximum payload capacity of up to 775kg, and can tow weights of up to 4536kg without breaking sweat.

Importantly, the Tundra also comes as standard with Class IV towing equipment installed including hitch, brake controller, and trailer sway control.

Fuel Economy

All Tundra models run on gasoline, with an ample 144L tank capacity meaning you can work for longer without refills. For a truck of this size and an engine this powerful, exceptional fuel economy isn't particularly expected.

Nonetheless, the rear-wheel powertrain delivers respectable figures of 17.7L / 100km in the city and 13.6L / 100km on the highway. The four-wheel drive models are slightly thirstier, with typical figures of 18L and 14.1L for city and highway respectively.

Tundra Pricing

The base level of the Tundra starts at $40,190, rising to a maximum of $62,750 for the full-featured Platinum trim.

2020 Toyota Tundra Verdict

The 2020 Toyota Tundra is a serious full-size pickup with enough power to handle anything you throw at it. Combine the strong capability with the renowned reliability of Toyota mechanics, and you've got a truck that won't let you down when the going gets tough.
