Today, the 2019 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro hits the dirt.
After a year-long absence from Toyota’s lineup, the 2019 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro mark’s the model’s return to the fold. TFL’s Roman Mica had the opportunity to head out to Utah and see what the new truck’s all about. What better way to test the capability of Toyota’s latest offerings than an epic overland adventure across two states? In today’s TFLtruck video, that’s exactly the sort of trip Roman embarks on to put the new Tundra TRD Pro through its paces. After a stint in the Tacoma TRD Pro, how does its big brother stack up?
2019 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro: the details
Like the normal truck, the 2019 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro packs the same 5.7-liter V8 and 6-speed automatic transmission. However, Toyota has bestowed their most off-road worthy full-size truck with some off-road equipment to make it a better terrain-bashing machine. It uses 2.5-inch FOX shocks with 46 mm pistons in the front. The front shocks have 11 bypass zones while the rear shocks have 12. Front wheel travel goes up by 1.5 inches and rear wheel travel increases 2 inches over the standard Tundra. Aesthetically, the 2019 Tundra TRD Pro gets Rigid Industries LED fog lights, same as the Tacoma. Finally, new 18-inch BBS satin black wheels on 275/65R18 Michelin tires and a classic “TOYOTA” grille round out the TRD Pro’s exterior look.
Also like the Tacoma, Toyota will offer the 2019 Tundra TRD Pro in Super White (pictured), Midnight Black Metallic or Voodoo Blue. The Tundra, Tacoma and 4Runner TRD Pro models will be available this fall.
