When we wanted to shortlist the most impressive pickup trucks of this year, the model name 2019 Toyota Tundra appeared within the first few entries. The specs that we got to see online encouraged us to pay a visit to the local Fruitland Toyota dealer to explore the all-wheel drive pickup truck from Toyota. And our test drive experience with the vehicle urged us to share some exciting factors, because of which we are here.
The 2019 Model at a Glance
With the 2019 year release of the Tundra, Toyota has ensured that this full-size pickup truck gathers more of its loyalists, and for this the brand parent has powered the lineup with the muscles of V-8 engines that are capable of giving its rivals a tough competition.
Although the 2019 model year didn’t bring much change to the Tundra than the models that were released last year, Toyota has surely implemented some worthwhile upgrades to the lineup, especially on the range-topping TRD Pro trim level.
Finally the 2019 year lineup of Tundra counts in trim levels named as SR, SR5, Limited, 1794 Edition, Platinum, and TRD Sport trims according to its ascending price order.
Every trim model of the 2019 Tundra leaves the shade of its manufacturing factory with a 4.6-liter V-8 engine playing under its hood that can effortlessly make 310 of horsepower. This engine comes as the standard powertrain on the SR and SR5 trims.Toyota also offers a 381-hp generating 5.7-liter engine which sold out more in number than the other one. For both the engines a 6-speed automatic transmission is installed to shuttle the right amount of power to the either the rear wheels or, to all the four wheels, depending on what option you ticked for.
Coming to how these powertrains perform when challenged with a tricky task, our test drives with the said weight loaded at the cargo bed showed how well each Tundra can perform. Both the engine models gave the same steering response , cruising on the rough surfaces with a consistently quiet run, swallowing up almost every bump that came on its way. Thanks to the new Fox shocks that are tuned to this sort of performance pressure.
Most of the trim models of the 2019 Toyota Tundra are equipped with a large touchscreen for its infotainment section to display all the relevant information.
