2019 Toyota Tundra Diesel is an obvious continuation of the old model with much improvement and as we will see, changes in engine type and strength. Since the first model has been made, and that was 2006, Tundra has been changed many times, but always remaining the same shape and overall design. We can say that something like that happened this time; too, so new Tundra has recognizable details in design and shape, with some novelties in decoration and design. However, Tundra is still one of the biggest trucks on the market, aiming to reach the hearts of truly American drivers.
- big and strong truck
- luxury and comfortable cabin
- not officially confirmed
During its age, Tundra has been changed only in details remaining important and recognizable details for future buyers. The same thing is about 2019 Toyota Tundra Diesel. It has recognizable massive front end covered with aluminum grids that end with large LED front lights. This end has soft edges and some curves as a decoration, together with metallic wide protection on the bottom of front bumper. The rear end is as on other trucks flat with modernized rear lights and aluminum decorations.
As the opposite of many manufacturers on market nowadays, 2019 Toyota Tundra Diesel will be a luxury and comfortable cabin that is not usually seen in trucks. Large comfortable seats wrapped in leather are combined with quality materials, like chrome and wood, at least in higher trim versions. The dashboard is maybe a little old-fashioned but covered with buttons and commands which shows high-technology manufacturer used there. We expect modernized rearview camera and cruise control, but also great audio and sound system.
The most interesting thing about 2019 Toyota Tundra Diesel is the engine, knowing how this type of engine has not been so popular in past couple decades. Because of the fuel crisis and environment protection, diesel engines were not been acceptable on market. However, Toyota promises improved engine, with better fuel consumption and surely, lower CO2 emission. So, together with petrol and even a hybrid version, Tundra will be offered with a 4.5-liter V8 diesel engine, too, with 261 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque.
2019 Toyota Tundra Diesel Release Date and Price
While the petrol version costs slightly less, 2019 Toyota Tundra Diesel reaches the number of $55,000 for the base model. That could be acceptable price taking in mind fuel economy and other savings with this engine. However, the truck should be the main competitor to Chevrolet Silverado and Ford F-150, which will not be easy at all.
