Extreme competition in the off-road package segment continued at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show. In line with this, introduced was the 2019 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro. First of all, they compete with the Ford F-150 Raptor and RAM 1500 Rebel. Expected in showrooms at the end of this year (autumn).
There are discernible differences from the standard Tundra: the new TRD Pro grille and hood; TRD cat-back dual exhaust system with black chrome tips; Fox Racing Shocks; new Fox dampers; new LED headlights and LED off-road fog lights. Of course, embedded are LED daytime running lights and LED tail lamps. Without significant changes in the cabin, there are black leather seats with red contrast stitching, and lots of TRD Pro emblems. Also has a high-resolution 7-inch touchscreen with split-screen display. In addition has a dual zone automatic climate control, and telescopic steering wheel.
Of course, as far as the external dimensions are concerned, there are no differences. We also assume that they will have the same payload and towing capacity, as well as slightly less weight. As announced, it will have Double Cab or Crew Max, with two or four doors, designed to accommodate five passengers. Placed at the new lightweight 18-inch BBS forged-aluminum wheels with Michelin LTX A/T2 tires.
Unlike other models, only the 5.7-liter V8 DOHC engine is available. The production of this engine is 381 hp and 401 lb-ft (544 Nm) of torque. Probably will have the same fuel consumption as standard models: 13/17/14 mpg (AWD). All-wheel drive is available, combined with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Though mentioned, we believe that it will not have a drive on the rear wheels.
Although there is no information about the price 2019 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro, depending on the choice of the cabin, it will probably cost from $ 44,000 to $ 47,000.
