Meanwhile, 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro that will also be equipped with the new headlights will combine the forward-facing radar sensor with new and redesigned less bulky grille of TRD Pro. On the hood, the TRD Pro skid plate is now ¼- inch thick and can protect the engine from trail damage.
The redesigns also happen to the wheels. 2020 Toyota Tundra will be running with BBS forged-aluminum 18-inch wheels. It has a new design of five spokes with 3.35-pound reduction of mass. The wheels are able to cut 13.4 pounds of the weight of the truck. On the suspension, the truck will be provided with the new one to give a very comfortable ride and improve the handling.
The 2020 Toyota Tundra interior has not many redesigns happened. The minor changes are like the revised gauged cluster. Other than this, the interior is slightly the same as the previous model. The seats are wrapped up in black leather with TRD logo and red contrast stitching. These seats can accommodate five people. Then, the dash is also wrapped with black leather and the same red contrast stitching. The floor mats improve this design’s look.
On the technological aspects, the car will have an emergency system called Toyota Safety Sense. This system will be available on every new Toyota Tundra. This system can assist the driver with automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and a backup camera.
