The market of full-size pickup trucks has always had a reputation of being one of the most popular and best-selling in the US. The fans will be very happy to hear that another powerful member of this family is going to make its debut soon as a 2019 model. It will be the new 2019 Toyota Tundra.
The 2019 Toyota Tundra is going to hit the market as a full-size pickup truck with large dimensions. Its chassis will be mostly made of high-strength steel, but some parts of its body will also use the lightweight materials such as aluminum in order to save some weight. The truck will be able to handle all sorts of terrains and conditions due to its massive wheels and all-terrain tires. The current model wears 18-inch ones, but we hope that the new Tundra will get something bigger. The spy photos of the camouflaged version being tested have shown that you should not expect any drastic changes in terms of design. The truck will keep its powerful, robust and boxy design, but also undergo some minor refreshments and updates. In the front fascia, for instance, some of the features have been compared to those found on the latest Camry. Perhaps, the hood and its grille with vertical slats have undergone some drastic changes, but the rest of the vehicle remains pretty much the same. The headlights with daytime running lamps as well as the taillights will be using the latest LED technology.
Due to large dimensions of the 2019 Toyota Tundra, you can hope for some extra space inside this model. The interior will be roomy and comfortable and Toyota simply has to keep up with the latest trends when it comes to design of next-generation trucks. Some refreshments and upgrades have been really necessary. The cabin will be furnished with high-quality materials such as leather, wood and aluminum. The seats will offer options such as ventilation and heating. The driver will also get a heated steering wheel and a 7.0-inch touch-screen display with the latest infotainment system. It will provide features such as satellite navigation, automatic climate control, USB ports, an audio system, Bluetooth connectivity, Android Auto, Apple Car Play and many more. Safety features such as blind spot monitoring, traction control and cross-traffic alert will be included as well.
When it comes to engine of the 2019 Toyota Tundra, it seems that the 5.7-liter V8 could replace the current 4.6-liter V8. Such an engine is expected to deliver at least 394 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. However, both of these engines have already been a bit outdated so a rumor has it that Toyota might introduce a brand-new engine for its 2019 Tundra.
