At the turn of the century, Toyota introduced the successor to its T100 full-size, light-duty pick up truck. The new flagship pickup would be called the Tundra, and it was sure to make an impact in the segment. Twenty years later, the 2020 Toyota Tundra in Palatine IL is one of the most popular full-size pickup trucks on the market. While the new model year doesn’t bring with it too many changes, if any, it’s still one an exciting vehicle thanks to its pedigree and capabilities.
In truth, the Toyota Tundra hasn’t seen a major overhaul since 2007 when it entered its second generation. There was a facelift in 2014, which was seven years after it entered the current generation. That means next year will mark another seven years (the first generation lasted seven years as well). For that reason, many fans and enthusiasts believe that we might see a major overhaul next year. Until then, we’re more than happy with the 2020 Tundra!
In truth, not going through any changes this year is just a testament to how great the Tundra already is in its segment. It doesn’t need any upgrades or enhancements because it’s already offering so much value to customers. It’s delivers impressive power and capabilities and is packed with great content and features. Let’s dive into some of the specifics to give you a better idea.
The Tundra is powered by a 5.7L V8 engine that’s capable of generating 381 horsepower alongside 401 pound-feet of torque. All that power lends to the Tundra’s impressive capabilities. In its bed alone it’s capable of holding up to anywhere from 1,520 to 1,730 pounds of weight. Hook up your trailer or whatever you need to haul along in addition to your truck and you can tow up to anywhere from 8,800 to 10,200 pounds of extra weight.
On top of its impressive performance and capabilities, the Tundra is packed with great content as well. It has many of the same entertainment and convenience features as other vehicles on the lineup and even comes standard with the Toyota Safety Sense P package.
