What's New for the 2019 Toyota Tundra?

While other manufacturers continue to offer large pickup trucks, few bring exclusive V-8 power to the table in a large, rugged, and tested frame like the Toyota Tundra. The 2019 Tundra reintroduces the TRD Pro trim to the model lineup, with a new hood scoop, wheels, and shocks available on that trim. This is the premiere entry in the 4-wheel drive Tundra lineup, and it's a welcome re-addition to the line. It has a long list of standard interior equipment, including an enhanced safety kit and more durable shocks.

Has Toyota Expanded the Lineup of Tundra Trims?

As is common with pickups these days, the Tundra comes in a bevy of trims and configurations. If anything, Toyota may have even been a bit conservative in the configurations they're offering for the Tundra, with 9 trims and 27 total configurations. Noticeably absent from the available setups, the long bed option is only available on a handful of trims, expanding the base bed size to 164-inches, up from 145-inches.

The base model Tundra SR features a 4.6L V8 making 310-hp and mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox. This gearbox is featured throughout the lineup and is the only available option. The base model comes in both 2WD and 4WD variants. The larger 5.7L V8 is also available in the SR, and creates up to 381-hp. This is one of the precious few trims that features the long bed option.

Trim configurations continue to add more features, with the Tundra SR5 introducing the Crewmax option for extra passenger seating. The limited edition starts to add extra interior comfort features, as do the Platinum and TRD Pro trims. The TRD Pro comes exclusively in the CrewMax setup, and features additional exterior touches like a hood scoop.

What Engine is Under the Hood?

The smaller 4.6L V8 creates up to 310-hp and has a slight edge in fuel-economy, getting a combined 17 mpg in the more lightweight Tundra models without 4-wheel drive. The big 5.7L V8 puts out up to 381-hp and gets an even 15 combined mpg across the range.

Toyota does offer a select few FFV (flexible fuel vehicle) variants of their 5.7L engine, available only on the SR5 trim. This flexible-fuel option is a nice addition to the line for those who can take advantage of its unique properties.

How Safe is the 2019 Toyota Tundra?
