We all know how Tundra is a strong and sustainable truck, widely popular and attractive, but even those vehicles need to be replaced at one point. Especially if we know that the current model has not been replaced since 2006 when the first version was released. Even though there were few small changes and the number of sold units has not decreased during those 12 years, it is about time to see something new from the manufacturer. This few days we across in some information about new 2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel, here is what we know so far:
- The size of Tundra has never been questionable, this time on modernly designed chassis.
- A strong and powerful diesel engine should attract diesel engine’s fans.
- It is not known if the new model will be made of aluminum, which could improve the speed.
- This robust and large truck could make troubles in handling and driving.
There are high chances that the 2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel will be made on a new platform, with significantly changed details in design. Some rumors said that Tundra should share the same platform with Land Cruiser, but those are not confirmed. According to spy photos, we should expect wide and flat front bumper, but with recognizable details on the grille. Other parts are not known yet, so we should know later.
It is not known how the interior of 2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel will be changed, as well as which equipment will be included in that car in the new version. The only which is known is that the interior of the model should be similar to the current model and it will have the recognizable parts which include commands for diesel engines. It is important to say that the manufacturer has planned to significantly change the design of the cabin, with a 7.0-inch infotainment system on the dashboard, new telescopic steering wheel and comfortable seats with adjustable functions.
There are few possible engine options that new Tundra will offer in its versions, like 4.0-liter V6 with 276 horsepower of strength. There is also the 4.6-liter V8 engine that produces 310 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque, and 5.7-liter V8 model with 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. On the other hand, 2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel should have a new and improved diesel option, perhaps improved current engine or a completely new engine under the hood. Just in case that you forgot, the current model has 5.0-liter V8 Cummins engine that produces 310 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque. This engine version put Tundra closer to its rival Nissan Titan.

Even though the manufacturer has not clearly said when to expect 2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel, we are sure that it will be in the middle of 2019. Starting price should be higher than for the current model, which is in the average price range with $32,000. However, besides the mentioned competitors, there are models like the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Nissan Titan, and GMC Sierra 1500 that should be considered. For those who are off-road fans, there should be a special trim called TRD Off-Road package included.
