We’re keeping our fingers crossed for an all-new, redesigned Toyota Tundra sometime in the next couple of years, but for the 2020 model year? The 2020 Toyota Tundra doesn’t see too many changes outside of a few updates to its TRD Pro trim level. That doesn’t mean it’s any less impressive, as it keeps the same outstanding power ratings & capabilities that have given it its reputation as one of the best full-size, light-duty pickups on the market.

Powertrain & Performance
Although there are a plethora of different trim levels available for the 2020 Toyota Tundra, they all share the same powertrain. The Tundra is powered by a 5.7L Aluminum i-FORCE V8 engine featuring technologies like Acoustic Control Induction System, Dual Independent Variable Valve Timing with intelligence and more. The powertrain enables the Tundra to generate 381 horsepower alongside 401 pound-feet of torque.
Towing & Payload
These ratings will vary depending on your trim level, but with the towing package equipped you can haul up to 10,200 pounds by trailering. The lowest towing capacity a Tundra offers is 8,800 pounds, which is still plenty of weight. Your truck bed, on the other hand, can accommodate anywhere from 1,520 pounds to 1,730 pounds, again depending on trim level.
As you can see, the 2020 Tundra is every bit as impressive as it continues to be year after year. Plus, there are even rumors that a hybrid Tundra is on the way. Can you imagine these impressive power & capability ratings with a hybrid powertrain? Naturally, the numbers would likely come down a bit, but in exchange, the fuel economy ratings would skyrocket!
