Considering that the latest reports suggest that the next generation won’t come this year, it seems pretty clear that the next year, 2021 Tundra will come with pretty much the same design and features. This includes the model’s most capable version as well. Of course, we are talking about the 2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro, which is one of the most capable off-roaders when it comes to a full-size pickup truck.
It comes with various kinds of upgrades, both in terms of styling and mechanics. Of course, there is also an exclusive list of standard equipment, so we are pretty sure that not many things will change in the next year. Therefore, we presume that the new model will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year.
2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Design
When it comes to base design characteristics, the 2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro isn’t much different than other models in the lineup. It features the same 13-year old design, but it also comes with several mechanical and visual upgrades.
When it comes to mechanics, the first thing that comes to mind is the suspension. It’s not hard to notice that this model sits a little bit higher compared to the rest of the lineup. That’s because it features an upgraded suspension setup, which includes TRD Pro shocks at the front and Fox shocks at the rear axle. These provide not only higher ground clearance, but also more travel and significantly better off-road experience. Of course, that’s not the only upgrade, as you may count on tow hooks, skid plates and many other things that are typical for off-road trucks.
When it comes to the styling, you may count on a couple of exclusive details as well. As you may presume, this model comes with exclusive rims, as well as with bigger tires. Also, there is a different grille, which comes blacked and with a different pattern. Also, you may notice “Toyota” lettering on it, instead of the famous brand’s logo. Of course, you can also notice TRD Pro badges around the vehicles.
This is where we could see some changes in the next year, as the company always makes some changes when it comes to color availability. In some previous year models, this model was available in Voodoo Blue finish, while the current model is available in four color options. There is a new Army Green finish, while the offer also includes two familiar options, Midnight Black Metallic, Magnetic Gray Metallic and Super White.
2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Interior Design
When it comes to the interior design, the 2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will also come with a couple of familiar exclusivities. One of the first things that come to mind are TRD Pro seats, as well as a completely black interior. Also, leather upholstery is standard, as well as a sunroof in CrewMax models. By the way, the 2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will be available both in CrewMax and Double Cab versions. Also, keep in mind that the infotainment system has been updated recently, so you may now count on smartphone goodies like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well.
2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Engine
This is the only aspect where there is no room for exclusivities. Just like any other Tundra, the 2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will also come with a well-known 5.7-liter V8 under the hood. This engine delivers around 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque and comes in pair with a six-speed automatic transmission. The engine delivers pretty good driving dynamics, but it is quite thirsty as well. You may count on about 13 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway.
Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro in a typical time of year, sometime in the last quarter of 2020. When it comes to the price, it currently starts at around 48.500 dollars and we don’t expect bigger changes in the future.
