The 2019 Toyota Tundra has been launched, and below, you can find anything you should know about the new vehicle.
The 2019 Toyota Tundra is not drastically changed compared to its predecessor, but we will mention its most important features. First of all, you can find 18-inch forged wheels which are standard on every Tundra TRD Pro. With such wheels, Toyota has improved the cornering response significantly while the overall ride quality is much better as well.
Let’s not forget about the TRD-tuned FOX suspension. The shocks come with a beefy 46mm piston and 11 bypass zones to help control the front wheels’ extra 1.5 inches of travel. Some of the other features include Aluminum skid plate, a tuned dual exhaust, Rigid Industries fog lights, etc.
Engineering and Design
Toyota trucks are the definition of the word “tough,” and the company has proven that multiple times with models such as Land Cruiser, Hilux and the Tundra as well. The new 2019 Toyota Tundra comes with amazing capabilities, and it is offered in several different trims, including Tundra Platinum and 1794 Edition. With these two models, not only will you get raw power, but comfort as well.
The new Tundra is assembled in San Antonio, Texas. The parts for the new model are sourced from the US, but from some other countries outside America as well. Once they are produced, the vehicles are sent to Michigan where the engineering teams continue the good work. Michigan is a perfect place for the trucks to be tested and it is up to the vehicles to prove that they can handle everything you throw at it – and we have no doubt that the Tundra is capable of doing exactly that. Before it hits the showroom, the Tundra needs to be styled, and that is done both in Michigan and California.
Interior and Utility
The cabin of the Tundra is spacious, and all passengers will have plenty of room to stretch out. The Tundra has an upscale feel to it thanks to the premium materials all over the cabin, and the tech is easily accessible.
The 1794 Edition is unique because it is the epitome of the full-size truck luxury. For those of you looking for the premium truck, the 2019 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition is what you need. Opt for the Platinum CrewMax cabin to make it even more luxurious and comfortable.
Some of the features in the new Tundra include dual-zone automatic climate control, fold-up rear seats, center console with a covered storage compartment, etc.
We assume you will be using the new Tundra to tow stuff. Towing is one of the most important features on every truck, and the Tundra excels here. Thanks to the powerful engine, the Tundra can tow over 10,000 lbs.
And you will be able to keep an eye on your car thanks to the combination meter that includes a voltmeter, coolant temperature, and fuel and engine oil pressure gauges. The technology which will help you with towing is TOW/HAUL Mode and 4-/7-pin connector and integrated trailer brake controller/trailer-sway control.
Under the hood
Several engines are offered for the new Tundra. Firstly, there is the i-FORCE 5.7-liter V8 that delivers 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. This unit is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission, with a standard Tow Package added to the mix.
Moreover, Toyota offers the i-FORCE 4.6-liter V8 as well, and this engine delivers 310 hp and 327 lb-ft of torque. Once again, the transmission used is the 6-speed automatic.
