Diesel and Hybrid Drivetrains Possible For 2020 Toyota Tundra

The 2020 Toyota Tundra is on the way. We could see soon the first appearance of the new model which could be redesigned. Well, the Japanese company planned it for 2021 season, but things are speeding up recently. So, the next edition could bring us both redesign and a long-awaited diesel engine. First spy shots are there. Of course, Toyota is still hiding the body of the new truck. But, thanks to the heavy camo, we can guess there will be many changes.

A far-fetched story is the 2020 Toyota Tundra Hybrid. This is still hard to imagine, but the Japanese company is definitely looking forward to bring this one too. Ford is coming with the F-150 pretty soon, so other truckmakers will have to respond. Well, it won’t be the first time for Toyota to impress with their hybrid vehicle since their Highlander SUV is the most popular hybrid among three-row mid-size rivals.

2020 Toyota Tundra Specs

Until diesel and hybrid units arrive, the main source of power for the 2020 Toyota Tundra will remain a V8 petrol engine. This truck will offer two of these. The entry-level model is going to carry a 4.6-liter displacement capable to produce 310 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque. A rear-wheel drive is standard, while the 4×4 is optional for both engines. The larger one is a 5.7-liter V8 with the capability to produce 380 hp and 400 lb-ft.

A six-speed automatic transmission is still doing the job perfectly, so there is no reason to suspect in its availability for the 2020 Tundra. The downside of this truck is fuel consumption, while the towing capacity is over 10,000 pounds. A smaller unit can haul up to 7,000 pounds.

2020 Tundra Diesel

We can hear it again – the 2020 Toyota Tundra Diesel rumors are back. There was a strong indication that the 2019 season model could come with such drivetrain, but the Japanese company has failed to deliver it. They officially announced the diesel truck is not coming. Well, they lost the battle. All big rivals made huge debuts for their models. Ram 1500 diesel stole the show at Detroit. Ford F-150 diesel and Chevy Silverado 1500 diesel were there too. Whatsoever, a year after the big news, we can see none of them at dealerships. So, Tundra and Toyota have another shot to turn the rumors into truth.

Engineers are working on the entire drivetrain system. The powertrain will be more efficient. But, don’t expect any radical improvements. The 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will be a thirsty rig.

2020 Toyota Tundra Redesign, Spy Shots, Android Auto

The latest confirmed news about the 2020 Toyota Tundra is the addition of the Android Auto for the truck. The Japanese company developed their own infotainment system. For a long time, they refused to add the two market-leading products – Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. During 2018 some of their vehicles appeared with Apple’s service. In the first month of 2019, Toyota announced that the new Entune will support Google’s features as well.

The new 2020 Toyota Tundra was already caught a few times. But, spy photos didn’t unveil too many details. In a matter of fact, these photos are not even clearly confirming a redesign. Well, we will have to be patient for a bit longer, since the truck will appear soon.
