2019 Toyota Tundra Edition Specs, Colors And Review – It’s back. The 2019 Toyota Tundra Edition returns from a one-year hiatus after quietly sitting out the 2018 model year. It is not an all-new truck or even a significant redesign, however the 2019 Toyota Tundra Edition pickup received a couple of specific mechanical revisions that stand to make it more desirable than ever.
2019 Toyota Tundra Edition Specs, Colors And Review
The current 2019 Toyota Tundra Edition Specs, Colors And Review has been around since 2007, with only a modest update for the 2014 model year. This makes Toyota’s full-size truck the oldest in the segment, falling well past its competition. News from Toyota is nearly nonexistent on an update, however there is a solid case for 2019 being the target year.
In typical Toyota fashion, a game-changing update isn’t expected, but instead a well conceived renewal of what works. 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid Review. As for what’s under the bodywork, well, there is speculation Toyota will employ its newest D-4S dual fuel injection technology into a heavily revised, if not all new, V-8 engine.
2019 Toyota Tundra Edition Engine
The current 2019 Toyota Tundra Edition Specs, Colors And Review is offered with two engine options: the 4.6-liter V-8 and the 5.7-liter V-8. The 4.6-liter replaced the 4.7-liter V-8 in 2010. A five-speed and six-speed automatic backed up the engines, and an electronically controlled, part-time 4WD system offered better traction in adverse conditions. As for the future, the two engines should undergo heavy changes for emissions, fuel economy, and power.
Expect Toyota’s D4-S direct and port fuel injection system to be incorporated, while the Dual VVT-I variable valve timing system carries over. Displacement could change, as well. Toyota could use the 5.0-liter V-8 found in the Lexus lineup in an effort to increase efficiency without a loss in power. Tuned for the Lexus LS600h, the 5.0-liter makes 394 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. Some longer intake runners and some modified software could have torque ratings passing 400 pound-feet. That would make for an excellent replacement for the 4.6-liter.
2019 Toyota Tundra Edition Exterior
2019 Toyota Tundra Edition Specs, Colors And Review we weren’t kidding about mild changes to the bodywork. While Toyota has done surprisingly youthful work in recent memory (here’s looking at you 2018 Camry), it’s doubtful the same vigor will be used on the Toyota Tundra Edition. We expect its reserved styling to stay intact, however with influences from other Toyota products. Headlights styled after the Tacoma’s are clearly seen, as are the fender bulges. LED daytime running lights, turn signals, and fog lights will be present. The lower bumper might wear a stronger design with a faux skid plate bringing a toughened look.
Our rendering gives the grille a revamp with more chrome and a larger Toyota Review badge. And however it isn’t shown, larger wheels are expected. Currently, 18-inch rollers are the largest available on the Toyota Tundra Edition. The competition is offering 20-inch wheels on range-topping models, with optional 22-inch wheels available at the dealership. Toyota could bring some innovation to the cargo bed, however. It is great to see a built-in 110-volt power outlet, in-wall storage boxes, and a revised cargo tie-down system. What’s more, we’d love to see Toyota make getting into the bed easier – either with a bumper step, ladder system, or other not-yet-seen method.
2019 Toyota Tundra Edition Interior
It is hard to imagine 2019 Toyota Tundra Edition Specs, Colors And Review future interior design stylings at this point. The Tacoma remains Toyota’s newest truck product, so it’s possible the Toyota Tundra Edition could borrow interior designs there. Yet, the Tacoma and 2019 Toyota Tundra SR Interior Review have traditionally had separate designs for their dashboards, making the theme sharing unlikely. Whatever Toyota does here is expected to trickle to the Sequoia SUV, so a family friendly, intuitive design with tons of storage space is needed.
Topping the list of needs and wants is an updated infotainment system and gauge cluster. The current Entune system is outdated and offers no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. A single USB port must be shared by everyone, and there is no option for a 110-volt power outlet. Both Ford and GM come bristling with USB ports and offer the household plug as an option. The popular CrewMax model isn’t likely to grow larger thanks to competitive levels of legroom, headroom, and shoulder room. However, a taller rear bench seat would add comfort, while increasing under-seat storage space. The addition of a completely flat load floor would be a very welcomed addition, as well. One aspect we desperately hope the Toyota Tundra Edition keeps is its roll-down rear window. We loved that feature during our last Toyota Tundra Edition test drive.
