2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport Review

The base model of the largest Toyota truck, Tundra, starts at $33,400. One of the most expensive models is an off-road TRD Pro version. If you are not willing to spend $48k, or you don’t need such a powerful unit, then wait for the lighter version. The 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport is going to be added later next year and its price should be around $40,000.

This package is already available for Tacoma. Well, the mid-size pickup also offers the TRD Off-Road version, but this one is not coming for the larger vehicle. The 2020 Tundra TRD Sport will be a combination of off-road capabilities and sporty ride. Fans are already asking about the release date.

TRD Sport Package

The most notable addition for the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport will be a hood scoop. On the other hand, the package brings special wheels, but not the ones for the toughest terrains. Gray grille will be similar to the one we find on Tacoma. We believe the truck is also getting a moonroof. The bed offers a power outlet. Heated mirrors are standard, as well as the 10-way power driver’s seat. Cloth upholstery can be upgraded if you choose the Pro edition.

The TRD Sport package also takes care of infotainment. You will get a cool audio system, and probably navigation. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard for all 2020 Tundra models. More USB ports than for the base version are there, and Toyota will offer panoramic monitors as an optional feature.

2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport vs TRD Pro

The 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport will be the baby brother. The TRD Pro takes everything to the highest level. No wonders why it is considered as one of the toughest off-road trucks in the market. All-terrain tires, unique accents, graphics, and parts are there. The moonroof is already there, and the interior is more comfortable. JBL delivers an audio system with navigation. More safety services are there as well. The off-road has never been easier thanks to the multi-terrain monitor. But, the real difference is in capabilities. The TRD Pro version comes with Fox shocks, electronically locking rear differential and cat-back exhaust. Skid plates are not available for the TRD Sport package.

2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport Specs

Like the rest of the lineup, the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport will use the most powerful V8 engine the company has to offer. It is a 5.7-liter unit capable to crunch 380 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard. The TRD Pro comes with a part-time 4WD system. The lighter TRD Sport package will leave you the option to pick a rear-wheel drive. Of course, the new version of Tundra is not going to copy the offer from its smaller brother. The company will launch a couple of surprises to improve its offer.

Price

The TRD Pro is among the most expensive versions of the truck thanks to its mechanical upgrades. It is on par with premium versions with leather upholstery and advanced features. We believe the price of the new 2020 Tundra TRD Sport will be somewhere between two ends, very probably under $40k. In this case, it will land between Limited and SR5 versions, where we have the largest gap in price.
