The 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is going to be one of the toughest trucks in the market. With the Ford F-150 Raptor, this is definitely a model you should consider if you want to go off-road. TRD package is available on a few levels, and the Pro is a top option. With unique suspension and shocks setup, the full-size truck is becoming unstoppable.
If we compare the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro and Ford Raptor, we will see that the Japanese truckmaker is using the a V8 engine right from the start and the base model. However, the TRD Pro will get more power from a massive displacement. On the other side, Ford installs a V6 for the base F-150, while the Raptor version is getting a high-output V8.
2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Accessories
Ever since its arrival, the TRD Pro lineup became very popular among off-road adventurers. Besides Tundra, the squad included Tacoma pickup and 4Runner SUV. Starting next season, Sequoia full-size SUV joins the party. All models have unique upgrades. But, the goal is the same – make them off-road beasts.
The 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro takes advantage of the huge V8 engine. It is already a good start. The rest of the system is also making significant changes. The most notable upgrades are unique suspension and Bilstein shocks. Front springs and dual-exhaust system are also TRD-tuned. The badge is on the front skid plates, while the truck offers more than 10 inches of ground clearance. 17- and 18-inch wheels are wrapped in all-terrain tires. The larger fuel tank is also part of the upgrade.
Inside the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro, you will find leather seats with a lot of badges. Other accessories and equipment will boost the overall off-road driving impression. There are exclusive shift knob and carpet floor mats.
2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Specs
Under the bonnet of the 2020 Tundra TRD Pro is a 5.7-liter V8 unit. This is the largest engine the Japanese carmaker is using for their full-size models. However, the drivetrain is not taking any special tuning to offer higher outputs. So, the Tundra TRD Pro can count on 380 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. This is going to be enough in combination with the abovementioned upgrades. Also, the truck is combining the engine with a six-speed automatic transmission. Four-wheel drive is a working part-time and sends power to the axle which needs more energy to provide a smoother and balanced ride.
The 2020 Tundra TRD Pro is going to be one of the most expensive versions of the full-size truck. It costs only $100 cheaper than the premium Platinum edition. Toyota is not offering lower tiers of TRD package (Sport and Off-Road) for the full-size model. On the other hand, the Pro version costs $1,000 less than before. Still, with destination and additional fees, expect to pay at least $50,000. This is not too bad since Ford sells its F-150 Raptor for $52,000 without upgrades. Next season we could see novelties in this class, with possible arrival of Chevy Silverado ZR2. Read more about it HERE.
