2019 Toyota Tundra – The Redesign Is Coming

By

Toyota introduced the Tundra almost ten years ago, it has gone on to become a good seller for the Japanese manufacturer, but it’s still some way short of the domestic pickup truck sales.
Very little information has been released regarding the new Tundra, but from talking to industry insiders, we’ve gathered some information together and brought you what seems most likely to happen, although of course, things can change significantly in the automotive world! We will bring you further updates as they become available.

2019 Toyota Tundra Release date

We aren’t expecting to see the 2019 Toyota Tundra any time before the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2018, although we do think that Toyota will launch the vehicle at one of the larger auto shows earlier in 2018, with full roll out later that year.

2019 Toyota Tundra release date: early 2018

2019 Toyota Tundra Price

This is where some speculation comes in; some rumors put the 2019 Tundra in the price bracket of the current models and market, meaning a starting price of around $36,000 while others have the Tundra coming in at a hefty $55,000.

2019 Toyota Tundra Redesign and Changes

The Toyota Tundra hasn’t changed all that much over the years – it’s a full size pickup, still using the same chassis as it did when it first launched, rumor has it that the 2019 model won’t be all that dfferent either.

It’s expected that Toyota will change the basics; redesigned and larger bumpers front and rear, smaller LED headlights and a large hexagonal grille will round out the changes (at least styling wise). We are fairly confident that the Tundra will shed some weight (in the all important bid to increase fuel economy) and then we have the engines…

Rumors say that there will be at least two choices of engine; 4.5 liter twin turbo diesel V8 with 261 BHP and a massive 479 lb/ft of torque and a 5.7 liter gasoline V8 with 401 BHP and 381 lb/ft of torque.

2019 Toyota Tundra Diesel

However, recently we heard another rumor, which says there will be a Cummins 5.0 liter V8 diesel engine with 300 BHP and 500 ft/lb of torque. Whatever the options, it seems that power will be plenty.

    More reliable than junky Ford, GM, and Chrysler.

      They sure get smoked in any Full size truck comparison and they are so dated! Especially the interior design and their fuel economy sure leaves nothing to be desired. Unfortunately their perceived quality is better than they actually are. (bent frames,cylinder heads, etc.)

    What a butt ugly design! To these Tundras still drive themself with that unintended acceleration issue right.
